Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Cho la Pass Trek (5,422m/17,783ft) is one of the most challenging treks you will ever find, combining classic tradition, culture and top class adventures, covering the entire upper Khumbu Region, crystal Gokyo Lake, renowned viewpoint Gokyo-Ri and the camp base of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest.

Day 03: Flight to Lukla and trek to Phakding (2,700 meters)

Early morning flight to Lukla (2,800m) from Kathmandu with some amazing views from the plane. It takes about 30-40 minutes to Lukla. We will start our trek and head to Phakding. We will descend to Tharo Koshi, which is also known as Kusum Kangru Khola river. After crossing the river going over the suspension bridge, you’ll climb to Ghat and will continue climbing to Phakding. Overnight at Phakding.

Day 04: Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440 meters)

Following Dudh Koshi River, we will reach the area of Zamphuti. This is an excellent view point of the Thamserku peak. On our way ascending to Chomoa we will find the site of an agricultural project, interesting for visiting farming land. We will continue our walk uphill, until we enter the Sagarmatha National Park, where the Everest is (1148sq km, established in 1976) at Monjo (2840m.). We will reach Namche Bazaar, with amazing views of different Himalayan peak of Everest region. We’ll stay here overnight at 3420m of altitude.

Day 05: Rest and acclimatize in Namche (3,440 meters)

Day off and rest in order to get the proper acclimatization before our trek. We can hike around, it’s the ideal place to overview some of the outstanding mountains, like the Mt. Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Lhotse etc. You can walk around the Khumjung valley, Hillary School and Khunde Hospital and then return back to Namche. In Namche Bazaar, you can spend some time interacting with the fun-loving Sherpa people - you’ll get to know their culture and lifestyle.

Day 06: Trek to Tengboche (3,860 meters) 5 hours

We will walk along the ridge and then descend to Dudh Koshi River at Phunkithanka. After crossing the bridge, we will ascend to the Tengboche. Once we’ve reached Tengboche, you will see the local monastery. Tengboche has the largest monastery of Khumbu region. We’ll stay overnight.

We will descend to Debuche, crossing a suspension bridge on the Imja Khola, and then climbing to Pangboche amongst thousands of Mani stones, typical from the Buddhism culture. Our uphill trek will continue, taking us to the traditional Sherpa village of Dingboche.

Day 08: Dingboche to Lobuche (4,910 meters) 5 hours

The trail continues along the side of the Khumbu glacier, and it passes by stone memorials for climbers who didn’t make it to nearby summits. We continue to climb as we are heading to an altitude of 4,910 meters at Lobuche, which is really just a few steps away from the foot of the giant Lobuche peak. We’l stay overnight.

Day 09: Trek to Everest Base Camp (5,365 meters) then back to Gorak Shep (5,180 meters)

This is a bit more difficult trekking day walk along the Khumbu glacier, ending up at the Everest Base Camp at 5,365 meters, the closest you’ll get to Mt. Everest. Possibly, we will find there a team about to attempt the summit. The view of the Khumbu Icefall from the Everest Base Camp is spectacular. We will return back to Gorak shep to stay overnight. It’ll be about an 8 hour long trek in total.

Day 10: Hike up to Kalapattar (5,545 meters) and trek back to Dzongla (4,620m.)

Most of the morning we will be climbing the Kala Pattar, a small peak (by Himalayan standards) at 5,555 meters. The ascent is rather demanding, but the climber gets the most magnificent mountain panoramic view: the Everest, the highest point on the planet at 29,028ft, 8,848 meters, stands right in front looming the other giants: Nuptse, Pumori, Chagatse, Lhotse and countless other peaks. We make a quick descent to Gorak Shep. Then, we will gently descend to Lobuche and then go up to Dzongla.

Day 11: Dzongla to Thangna (4,650 m.)

We will walk on the flat stone path for a while. Then, we will ascend to Chola crossing the icy trails along Chola glacier.

Day 12: Thangna to Gokyo (4,750m.)

We will walk along the glacier route until we first reach Lake of Gokyo. The trek is easier over flat path following Dudh Koshi River up to Gokyo. It is a windy valley and it’s located near the third lake. At Gokyo you will be amazed by the natural beauty of Dudh Pokhari Lake.

Day 13: Rest day at Gokyo

Trek to Poonhill Hello, we had an unique experience hiking 5days through the mountains in the Annapurna Region. Communication and organization of the trip, with Shubash, was excellent and quick. Our guide Shambhu and porter Ram were very knowledgeable, friendly, incredibly kind and authentic people! Thanks! Sabine and Ralf

10 Star Experience! No need to search further - go with Exciting Nepal! As someone who has traveled to over 200 countries and partnered with numerous international climbing and tour companies, I hold a very high bar in terms of the level of service, expertise, professionalism and value for money I expect. Subash, the owner of Exciting Nepal, and his team far exceeded my expectations. My friend and I booked the Everest Base Camp with helicopter return. From the moment I made my first inquiry with Subash, I knew I had made the right decision. I extensively researched and reached out to numerous companies both in the US and locally in Nepal. Unlike other companies, Subash was extremely responsive throughout the process, patiently answering my laundry list of questions and providing expert recommendations based on my personal preferences and goals. Every aspect of the program was extremely well organized and executed flawlessly from start to finish. Unlike other companies which are purely “transactional” and impersonal, it’s clear that Subash and his team deeply and genuinely care about each and everyone of their clients - it was as if we were welcomed into a family. What is not apparent from the website is the fact that Exciting Nepal is the primary point of contact and logistics provider for mountain rescues - when you book with them, you should know that you have immediate and direct access to rescue resources unlike other companies who would have to reach out to Exciting Nepal for assistance! As you can imagine, this is something you don’t want to compromise on. Our trekking guide, Basu, was truly exceptional and went above and beyond to make our trek a dream come true. Basu was absolutely meticulous about ensuring every small detail was taken care of from start to finish and was incredibly caring and thoughtful - continually checking in on us and constantly motivating us with his positivity and upbeat attitude. He is an incredibly experienced guide and his passion for guiding and sharing the beauty of the mountains with others is an inspiration. Our days were filled with laughter and smiles and he created a uniquely warm and welcoming environment from the moment we said “good morning” and until we said “good night” every evening. Basu provided invaluable guidance on every aspect of our trek ranging from food recommendations to dressing appropriately for the changing weather conditions. Our porters Singman and Nyman, were also incredible and their strength and fortitude are nothing short of jaw-dropping. Along with Basu, they were constantly looking out for us and we felt so cared for. It was like spending time with a wonderful group of friends. I can’t recommend Exciting Nepal highly enough. I’m someone who has extremely high standards and Subash and his team far exceeded my expectations. Don’t waste your time booking with companies located outside of Nepal and paying triple the price of a paper pushing middleman - go to the source of expertise on the ground. Exciting Nepal truly sets the benchmark others should strive for with deep expertise is based on years of accumulated experience. I was so impressed with their level of customer service and expertise. I will continue to recommend them and make them my go-to guide service for any travel in the region.

We signed up for the Khopra ridge trek with Exciting Nepal and thoroughly enjoyed it! Everything was taken care of as part of the package (including airport transfer, accommodation and transport to Pokhara etc.) - all we had to do is show up and enjoy the magnificent scenery :) Basu (guide) was very helpful and attentive throughout. Thanks also to Niraj (porter) for doing the heavy lifting!
