Before you join the trek, beginner trekkers especially have to prepare themselves physically and mentally.

Gokyo Lake Trek with Everest Base Camp

The Gokyo Lake trek with Everest Base Camp is a difficult version of the EBC trek. This itinerary not only takes you to the lap of the highest mountain in the world but also to the remote corners of the Khumbu region. On this trek, you will explore the alpine Gokyo Lakes and also come across the biggest glacier in Nepal, Nogzumpla Glacier. 

For the first two days, you will follow the main trail to Namche Bazaar. From here, the trail follows a steep, offbeat, and less crowded trekking route to Gokyo Valley. Spend a night at the beautiful Gokyo village and hike to Gokyo Ri. Also, explore the fourth and fifth Gokyo lakes before descending to Dragnag.
The next part of the trail crosses the challenging Cho La pass and once again joins the mainstream EBC trek that leads to the Everest Base Camp. You will trek past Lobuche and Gorak Shep, following the Khumbu glacier before reaching the base camp. Further, the trail is the same as the 14-day EBC trek.

*Note: you also have the option to do this trek without crossing the Cho La pass. 

The Gokyo Lake trek with Everest Base Camp is perfect for anyone looking for something different and challenging. Of course, this trek is only recommended to experienced trekkers with great fitness.

It is a 10-day trekking program that starts with a commercial Lukla flight and ends with a helicopter flight from Gorak Shep to Kathmandu. The Everest Base Camp trek with helicopter return has only one acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar.

During the Everest Base Camp trek with helicopter return, you will only cover 65 kilometers. The helicopter flight at the end of the journey enhances the overall trip and makes it a lifetime venture. This trek is also perfect for both beginner and experienced trekkers.
