Trip Overview

Looking for some bang on adventure in the Everest region? Here we have designed for you this extremely adventurous bash on combination of Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lake. This is most suitable plan for those having plenty of three weeks’ time and who wouldn’t want to miss both Everest Base Camp and the serene view of magnificent Gokyo Lake. Nepal welcomes more than 30,000 people every year to trek in the most popular and most desired mountain region of Nepal; Everest. And it has now become common to most of the visitors to just go to the Base Camp and return back. Only few dare to choose less heard and less crowded and more difficult routes like Renjo La pass and Cho La pass. Only few are aware of the fact that in the whole region, Gokyo is the only spot blessed with the privilege of providing the least hindered sight of Everest in its most refined form. Trekkers who have been there say that the ability to be there through all the hardships is even more rewarding than the view from the Base Camp.

This trek that starts from Lukla and enters through Sagarmatha National Park will offer you a bold view of the highest mountain of the world, Mount Everest as you stand proudly in the Everest Base Camp which will be followed by a relatively difficult route to the Gokyo Lake and Gokyo RI passing through the stunning Chola Pass and again return back to Lukla through another astonishing pass Renjo La and Thame. As you walk past the routes, you will cross many Sherpa villages and guides will narrate you their culture and traditions. You will also be able to learn how Sherpa and Tibetan people; both being the followers of Buddhism are alike in terms of language and their lifestyle.

Therefore, as you march around the periphery routes of Tibet, passing through all these in your later days after the Everest Base Camp visit, this trek will also allow you to have some glimpses of Tibet. The most exciting part about this trek is that you will be able to view the diverse natural beauty of diverse location all within half month. You will be amazed to notice distinguished landscapes everyday as you ascend and descend through the trails. Religious spots formed with the Mani stones and the Buddhist player flags, alpine meadows at some point, dry deserted land at some spot, sometimes the rugged steep hills and frozen frosty lakes will all mesmerize you and put you in awe struck silence. We will not take charge of any blames if it makes you jealous of the Sherpa and Tibetan people who are born with the fortune of embracing this beauty every day.

Reviews

Daniel Engelmann, Germany

I have always wanted to visit Nepal. It is a beautiful country and the Himalayas have always called out to my yearning heart. Recently, I finally had the chance to visit it. I went with Nepal Hiking Team as they seemed the most trust-worthy. As I first interacted with Balaram, the office head, I knew that I would be in good hands. During the initial correspondence, my queries were answered with ample information. It left me satisfied and in a good mindset for the trekking that I was about to do.

Then, when it was time to finally board my flight to Nepal, I was ecstatic! As I landed, as told, my guide- Hari Sharan, was there, standing with a placard of my name and the agency's name. A warm greeting ensued, where I was welcomed with a flower garland. It was a good first impression, and throughout the journey, Hari would make sure that I was enjoying my time.

Visiting Lukla after Kathmandu's bustling vibrancy was a nice relief. I was escorted from my hotel to the airport with Hari in an efficient way, no delays or troubles. From Lukla, the trek finally began! Hari arranged for a porter for me. With him, my trekking journey began with a comfortably-paced hike through the villages. He was my friend for the journey, as well as my guide. With Hari, everything was a breeze. All I had to do was enjoy my trek as everything else was taken care of. He arranged my guesthouses and the food. If I needed anything, Hari would arrange for it. I was also in constant contact with the office in Kathmandu as well; they asked me frequently if I was having a good time and offered their immediate services in case anything happened. That was immensely reassuring to know that I had my back with my agency.

Nepal Hiking team definitely deserves all of the best praises that it gets. Not only is it an extremely well-maintained customer service oriented company, it they genuinely do deliver in their promise of a good trekking experience. If I ever return to Nepal again, they are my number choice.

Mark, USA My family of four went to Everest Base Camp just before the pandemic hit the world. It was a long-awaited family vacation. We go camping whenever we can. But my teen boys were worried about being in the remote mountains for two weeks. Nonetheless, they were still up for a challenge. We knew about Nepal Hiking Team through a family friend. They previously did one of their treks and had only lovely things to say about their services. And we, too, listening to their experience, contacted Nepal Hiking Team for our family vacation. They were cautious with our requests and requirements. They were quick in responding to our questionable amount of inquiries. They were always thorough and prompt. Likewise, our pill of happiness and motivation, our guide Bhim was always there to encourage us whenever we felt it wasn't easy to go forward. He assured us we could finish the journey, and we did too. He never forgot to remind us to stay hydrated and that also on an hourly basis. He routinely checked our pulses to check our oxygen level and was always asking if we needed anything. The trekking team took good care of us during the trek. As much as our safety was given a priority, they made sure we were enjoying our trek as well. He was a master of trekking and had every bit of information about the mountains. He knew the mountains' names and continued to amaze us with his knowledge of mountains and their people. Our family vacation was fantastic, and its praise goes to the company and our talented guide Bhim. Without him and our robust porters, we would not enjoy the mountains' beauty to the fullest. We are happy that we went with our friend's recommendation and choose NHT for our extraordinary journey. We plan to visit again when all the commotion caused by the virus subsides.
Jessica, Australia I am glad that I decided to undertake the Everest Base Camp Trek. My partner and I both are avid hikers. Before this, we had never opted for trekking. Nepal was on our list of places to go for a long time, but we never got a chance to dwell on it due to work. But last winter, everything worked for us. And we decided it is time to visit Nepal. We both wanted to do trekking, but since Nepal's mountains are not easy for beginners, I was more leaning towards doing easy and short treks in Nepal. But my partner was so keen on doing the Everest Base Camp trek, so we agreed to the EBC trek. Even though we had decided on the hike, I was still skeptical about doing it because of its high-altitude nature. And when we found Nepal Hiking Team, we stated our concern to them as well. They were so helpful and informed them, and the trek is doable by the first-time trekker. They advised we got on training mode immediately as we still had few months left before starting the walk. Since I was the most concerned one, I paid most attention to building physical stamina. After months of training and waiting, it was finally time for the trek, and when we arrived in Nepal, Kathmandu airport, NHT was warmly welcomed by the team. A day before the hike, Ganga briefed about the walk, and the next day we got on the flight to Lukla. It was frightening but worthy of an adventurous experience. Our guide Narayan, amazed us with his knowledge about the mountains. He always made sure we were comfortable on the trek and never rushed our journey. He instead obliged to approach the walk smoothly and slowly. As I was more conscious about getting altitude sickness, he shared many helpful tips to avoid altitude sickness. He was very patient and always answered whenever we had one too many questions to ask. And for that reason, we are thrilled we choose NHT and have Narayan for our trek. If it were not for NHT, I would not be able to experience the trek's beautiful features. I am so thankful to NHT for arranging this wonderful and unique. All the credits go to your fantastic team for our wonderful experience in the Himalayas. We will revisit Nepal and have your company plan our next trip!
Paul Wilson, USA Everest Base Camp Trek was on my bucket list ever since I saw the bewildering Everest range images on my Pinterest page. That scenic destination stole my heart in a bit. So, I was like I had to be there someday. And when the perfect time came around, I started preparing for the trek. Nepal Hiking Team was recommended to me by my friends who trekked EBC a few years back. I immediately contact them and arrange my most awaited journey. My guide for the trek was Paban, and I am lucky to have him on the hike. I am a slow walker as I did not have any experience of trekking. He was very attentive about my pace. I never asked to walk faster as I was trekking in a group. He has a broad knowledge of the mountains and about the Sherpa people. He explained about all the mountains visible to our eyes. There were many things best all through the journey. A few of my best experiences on the trek would be breakfast at Everest View Hotel, rest day in Namche Bazaar, and Everest base camp itself. Also, the flight to Lukla was quivering, which fulfilled my need for an adrenaline rush. Similarly, the early morning hike to Kala Patthar fulfilled my thirst for breathtaking views of the mountains. From Kala Patthar, we got an up-close view of Mt. Everest, not from the base camp. I am glad I went on this journey. It was everything I had always expected it to be. And for not letting my expectations down, I am very much thankful to Paban and Nepal Hiking Team for making this trek a trip of a lifetime. From the beginning of the journey to Nepal's last day, they were always present to look after my needs. I am glad I choose them and very thankful for unforgettable memories. Every part of the journey was cherishing, and I look forward to exploring more trekking trails of Nepal in the future.
John, United States A good agency is the key to making or breaking a good travel experience. This is the most important factor that I look for when I am deciding on selecting a travel agency for my trips. For my visit to Nepal, the peak trekking season had many trekkers doing the Everest Base Camp Trek and I was no exception. When I checked Nepal Hiking Team, I was thoroughly impressed by their proficient website. When I e-mailed them about my query, I was surprised and immediately impressed by how prompt and detailed the responses were. Then as the arrangement of the trip was underway, I was thoroughly convinced that I had selected a good agency. It was proven true when I arrived in Nepal for the trip. I was greeted by Rabin, my guide for the trip. His well-mannerism and kind nature made me feel at ease. Then with a good briefing by Mr. Ganga at the office fully sealed my concentrated belief that I was in good hands. This relieved my peace of mind and I just let go the entire trip. It was the most fun I have ever had!  I had the best services and Rabin’s guidance made the trip into a smooth sailing! Thank You Nepal Hiking Team! Hope you guys will have more tourist after this ongoing pandemic.
