Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley Trek (22 Days)

Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley Trek
Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley Trek is a famous challenging trek in Nepal. It has been a popular destination for trekkers since the very first expeditions to the Everest in the 1953. Utmost Adventure designed a three week trek to get you real close-up to the base of highest mountain on earth. 

The trek start with fagnificient mountain flight to Lukla. Second day we trek to Namche Bazaar a bustling bazaar that a junction for trekkers and local peoples. All along this part of the trail, villages are interspersed with magnificent forests of rhododendron, magnolia and giant firs. Tengboche Monastery is structurally located on a ridge top with commanding views of the Everest landscape. We also have the opportunity to ascend Kala Pattar [5554m] from where we can get some awesome views of the Himalayan giants which literally numb your senses with breathless admiration that beholds the eye; and makes up for the lung-bursting climb that took you up there. You soon realize it was absolutely worth it. This also includes fantastic views of the south west face of the colossal Mt. Everest. We then trek down to Everest Base Camp at the foot of the Khumbu ice fall before finally making our way to Chola Pass and to Gokyo Valley. This traditional trek around Gokyo Valley offers magnificent views to the highest mountain peaks raising upon turquoise mountain lakes and to Ngozumpa the largest glacier in Nepal side of Himalayas before descending down to Lukla. While trekking is possible in this area the whole year round, the best times to visit are from the beginning of March to end of May and from the beginning of September to mid December.
