This trek in the Everest region takes you to the heart of it in the shortest practical time possible. It is an exhilarating, but challenging trek that combines the Everest Base Camp route with the tranquil turquoise glacial lakes of Gokyo Valley. We start with a classic route, but less visited, to Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu glacier. Kala Pathar (5,554m) is our first ascent that rewards us with a panorama of the majestic Everest and its neighboring peaks of Ama Dablam, Makalu, Nuptse, and Lhotse. Throughout this trek, the panorama is constantly changing but each and everyone leaves you with an indelible memory of this mountain wilderness. The trail then crosses the glaciated Cho La Pass (5,330m) to the Goyko valley with its sacred perfect turquoise glacial lakes. The 360º view from Gokyo Ri (5,360m) is breathtaking, and is one of the most impressive places in the world. You are surrounded by four of the fourteen eight-thousanders; Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. The descent back to Lukla takes on a different atmosphere as we walk through a valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forests where the elusive musk deer lurch at large.
