Exploring Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lake 

Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes gives you an entire Everest experience. Embarking on this 15-day journey takes you to the heart of four 8,000-meter peak mountains, including the world's highest, Mt. Everest. More, you'll hike to Gokyo Lakes, the heart of the hydrological cycle of the Everest region, with five conspicuous freshwater lakes. Later, you'll cross Cho La, one of the highest Himalayan Passes from Gokyo Valley, to enter Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar.

Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Lakes Trek combines two different Everest region trekking. Usually, trekkers prefer Everest Base Camp Trek or Gokyo Lakes Trek alone. Due to the strenuous grades, only some trekkers hike these two simultaneously. However, some find it easy to first trek to Gokyo Valley, and instead of crossing Cho La, they hike down to Phortse, avoid Cho La, and then Trek to Everest Base Camp via Dingboche, Lobuche, and Gorak Shep. But those with few high-altitude trekking experiences prefer this combined trek, with just 3-4 more extra days on the itinerary.

Here are some reasons why Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes in 2023 can be ideal for you.

Trek to Gokyo Lakes- Six Freshwater Turquoise Lakes

The six freshwater lakes at over 4,300 meters altitude Gokyo Lakes is a gem of Khumbu Valley. The famous member lakes of the Gokyo Lake system include Gokyo Cho (Dudh Pokhari), Thonak, Tanjung, etc. Phonak Cho is the largest, and Gokyo Cho is the most popular.

During Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes Trek, you'll have an itinerary of visiting Gokyo with a day of rest. You'll hike up to Gokyo Ri, at 5,357 meters, an excellent vantage point on the entire Everest region. Those who hike up to Gokyo Ri even rate this place as great as Everest Base Camp for the viewing experience.

One thing is true about Gokyo; it's a wholesome adventure in the Everest region. Compared to the base camp route, Gokyo sees fewer trekkers. Due to this, you'll have a peaceful hiking experience. Moreover, trekking to Gokyo allows you to witness Mt. Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain, only visible during the Gokyo Lakes Trek.

Apart from Gokyo Lakes and beautiful mountain scenery, the Gokyo Valley is the most beautiful. The beautiful tea houses near Gokyo Lakes offer a once-in-a-lifetime overnight accommodation experience.

Also, the lake holds significant religious values among the Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimages.  As It is the abode of Lord Shiva and Vishnu, the "Snake God". Thus, the eastern shore of this lake has a small temple of Shiva and Vishnu.

Everest Base Camp: The Highest Altitude seated Base Camp

You can have clockwise and anti-clockwise trekking options at Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes Trek. Either way, you'll reach Everest Base Camp Trek, the major highlight of the trek.

Everest's base camp, at 5,364 meters, is the highest altitude seated base camp of any 8000 meters high mountain. Reaching here can get tiring, but it rewards with the most exciting mountain glimpse. Further, you'll stand at the point where Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary once set foot.

Everest Base Camp and its surrounding locale is a true heaven of mountains. With Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu, you'll see four of the fourteen highest peaks on this trek. How cool is that?

Walking along the glacier and glacier moraines gives a true sense of serenity. Plus, when viewed from Kala Patthar, the magical sunrise and sunset colors on Everest elevate your trek experience. The warmth of Everest lives in you for the rest of your life.

While returning to Namche via Pheriche and Tengboche, you'll see other elegant mountains like Thamserku, Ama Dablam, Tawoche, and Kongde Ri.

Crossing Cho La Pass: One of the high Himalayan Pass

Cho La (Pass) bridges two mountain villages in Khumbu, Thangnak, and Dzongla. Those who prefer clockwise Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Lakes and Cho La cross this pass from Thangnak. And those who first trek to Everest Base Camp hike down to Dzonga from Lobuche, travel to Cho La, and hike down to Thangnak and Gokyo Lakes.

Considering its adventure, crossing this pass gives a surreal experience, just like traversing a small mountain. If it gets filled with snow in early March, you'll need to put on crampons, fixed rope, and attach it to summer. In the other months, you'll still need to hike up/down this pass with the help of a string attached to the right side. Don't get scared! Our highly experienced trekking guide will assist you throughout this trek. And take care of your ascend/descend on this pass.

Be prepared to cross this rugged terrain with us in Autumn 2023. Expect that it won't be an easy walk. One thing is sure; you'll live your moment on this pass. And you'll meet Three Pass Trekkers on this route, and they often applaud you to boost your morale.

Sherpa people, their culture, and popular settlements

While on Everest Base Camp Trek with Gokyo Lakes Trek, you'll experience the unblemished Sherpa culture.

Sherpa are the ethnic groups of the Everest region. From the start of Lukla to the Gokyo and Gorak Shep, you'll meet countless Sherpa people. Known as the legends of mountains, you'll often hear the stories of mountains from the expedition porters and climbers at the tea houses.

They have distinctive cultures and ways of living. The particular interiors of houses, attires, language, and hospitality are notable. The chortens, stupas, prayer flags, and stone-carved Buddhist mantras en route showcase the elements of vibrant Buddhism these people practice.

We can't assure you 100% that Ramechhap to Lukla flights won't get delayed or canceled on the day of your flight. Since Lukla Airport sits at 2,860 meters, the weather here often changes. Also, with changes in weather patterns, some days in October become rainy, halting the flights for days.

Even during the most stable weather of March-May and September-October, the weather can worsen. However, there's a great chance of flying Lukla on schedule during the clear weather days of Autumn and Spring.

Therefore, please allocate at least two days as a buffer day to cope with possible weather changes.

Meals during Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes Trek

Meals keep your body fuel adequate to keep up with the trek. Thus, you'll have choices from an expansive meal menu. However, you may get fewer choices at higher altitudes than at tea houses at lower altitudes.

Your meal during the trek includes 15 breakfasts, 15 lunches, and 14 dinners during the trek.

Acclimatization during the trek

You'll get two acclimatization stops, whichever you prefer, clockwise or counterclockwise Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes and Cho La Pass Trek.

Or at Dingboche with a day hike to Chukung or Nangkartshang Peak counter-clockwise.

Acclimatization is not for sightseeing only. Instead, they're more to keep your body adjusted with the high altitude and against the thin air.

Our clients get proper rest during this trek so that everyone can complete the trek successfully. With these two acclimatization stops, you'll adapt well to the altitude and, thus, avoid altitude sickness.

Altitude sickness and prevention

There's no denying that Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Lakes Trek has a high chance of getting altitude sickness. As you hike through the most remote altitude over 5,000 meters, the oxygen concentration gets very thin. As a result, you'll experience altitude sickness, HAPE, and HACE.

But is there any guarantee that you'll get it? No! 

The environment being susceptible to altitude sickness doesn't necessarily mean you'll get altitude sickness. You'll reduce the chance of mountain sickness with proper care, rehydration, meals, and avoiding alcoholic drinks. Also, our trekking guides will ensure you'll remain healthy throughout the trek.

The common signs of altitude sickness are headache, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and fatigue. If you get three symptoms at a time, report immediately to your trek guide. The guide will decide whether to stop, descend, or call for a helicopter rescue.

Instead of worrying about sickness, you should focus on not getting mountain sickness. Frequent hydration is the most practiced thing that keeps trekkers away from sickness. Also, proper rest and meals help you avoid the sickness. Mainly, alcohols, smoking, and caffeinated drinks cause dehydration, leading to mountain sickness. Thus, it would help if you avoided these, at least for the trek.

Also, your physical fitness comes into play. You'll escape the sickness if you're physically fit with proper cardio training.

          we have a great idea to solve altitude sickness in all Himalayan parts of the world. when you are starting to trekking you need to care about your health first thing is the food you can eat green vegetables and organic food so you got energy, and you need to eat garlic soup once a day 1 time don't be trying to meat item in highest mountain area if they have to fresh its ok but mountain site, not fresh meat item so you need to control for above the 4000 m high and energy bar chocolate when you are hungry you need to eat at least your body get power to move further step so not attack the altitude sickness. every trekker needs to take five liters of water per day so when the traveler uses the Diamox so when time your body is dry you need to recycle for body and trekking time swatting to use the good thermal. for example, mount Everest base camp trekking

          if travelers have altitude sickness what we do

          when trekkers have to get altitude sickness first step you need to come to lowes1000 elevation to where you are and the second step we need to eat soup & energy food, after that use 1 pers Diamox and take rested 2hours then they feel much better if their feet try to go again to further if they have to still problem need to camp back don't try to go more altitude. sometimes people try to go to high altitudes that's a way people go die in a mountain first need to care for yourself if any trekkers carefully follow that information differently they got a destination. the last thing is Diamox is not a medicine that just sorts time gives to control your body time if can don't drink water that time problem the side effect
