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.

Hareth Alsaadi, Phillipines I went for Everest base camp trip by mid-Dec 2021. I was a little worried as I never went trekking in my entire life.. however, i did a lot of research and came across Nepal Hiking Team so I decided after much thought to go with them Initially, I was in contact with Ganga the CEO of the company... i was highly satisfied with his interaction and communication with me right from the beginning.. i had so many questions and concerns regarding the trip and he was able to guide me and answer me all my inquiries... the on-boarding process was smooth and easy.. when i arrived in Nepal I found everything ready starting from the person picking me up from the airport, the hotel, some equipment for the trek, full introductory meeting on what to expect from the journey, all ground transportation, and even before i left Nepal after the trek.. a PCR staff was provided and came to my hotel... As for my trekking guide Prakash. i am truly happy that i had him as my guide.. a very spectacular human being.. he was more than a guide.. he was a great companion as well.. he ensured that i was having a good time.. continuously shared his expertise of mountains, Sherpa people, and Nepalese culture.. he always went the extra mile to support me... even at days when it was tough for me to continue due to altitude sickness.. he encouraged me and inspired me not to give up on this lifetime journey.. he always puts health and safety first.. Despite all the challenges of Everest Base Camp trek.. but i am very glad i did it... and i did it with an excellent group of people.. Nepal Hiking Team.. i highly recommend them for anyone intends to go trekking in Nepal. Read this review on trip advisor (click here)
Peter, United States of America My friend and I recently spent 2 weeks in Nepal, guided by the Nepal Hiking Team. Our original trek was canceled by an international company,  and the Nepal Hiking Team stepped in flawlessly. Ganga answered all of our questions, had our safety as his top concern always, was flexible, and was gracious with his hospitality. From Kathmandu, Pokhara, to the various tea villages, all the way to ABC, our Nepal Hiking Team was phenomenal. Our guide Arjun and porter Prem were first class, helping us navigate and learn about the terrain, giving us sage advice, and also making sure we had a great time (thanks for the wine!). I felt truly connected with them and it was hard to leave! A massive thank you to the entire team. Let's summit one of those monsters together soon!
William Belue, USA Nepal Hiking was incredible starting with the airport pick up all the way to drop off at the end of the trip. I had a scenario in which the airline lost my luggage and NHT arrange for my boots to be delivered via helicopter. This alone speaks to the level of care they provide their clients. Our guide, Bal, was one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve had the opportunity to meet and his attention to detail truly made this experience for me. The accommodations, food, gear, etc all blew my expectations out of the water. If you are looking for a guided Nepal experience, please look no further. I met other trekkers along my journey who were paying more and receiving less. This trip was a surprise birthday present and I am already planning my next trip back.

Ahmed, USA Joined recently for an Everest Base Camp tour and it was simply spectacular! The team was well equipped with all logistics and planning and Ganga did a fantastic job with communication before and during the trip too. As for the trip itself, it far exceeded expectations as we got lucky with great clear weather and really enjoying our hiking. Our tour guide Bal was excellent as he had a lot of previous experience, very knowledgeable, friendly, and a fun person. The accommodations and food were good too. Overall I would highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team to others. Note: Read this review on Tripadvisor (Click here)
