Trip Overview

Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Heli Shuttle Trek – The Best of Everest. Experience the Everest Region like never before! We at the Nepal Hiking Team had to come up with something that covers the best of the Everest region. Trek to the magnificent base camp of the tallest mountain in the world – Mt. Everest, and the pristine shorelines of the highest freshwater lake system in the world – Gokyo Lakes at 5100 meters!

Combining the most famous expedition to the Everest Base Camp with the relatively unexplored wonders of the Gokyo Valley via the Cho La Pass, we bring the Gokyo Lake with Heli Shuttle to Lukla. Visit the ‘Land of the Sherpas’ on this 17-day adventure to the foothills of Mount Everest, across the Cho La Pass to the Gokyo Lakes in the heart of Khumbu.

The perfect blend of cultural and natural beauty gives Khumbu its well-deserved fame as one of the most amazing trekking destinations in the entire world. This sensational trekking route will take you across beautiful alpine forests and villages with the most welcoming and hospitable people. The panoramic views of the tallest mountains and lakes in the world and the extraordinary culture of the region will take you to the closest concept of paradise.

It’s more about the adventure than about anything else. This package is perfect for those that want the best of Everest but do not have the time for it. More importantly, it’s for those of you that want the adventure but are doubtful of the challenge. After all, Everest is as much about mental stability as physical strength.

This Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Heli Shuttle Trek combines the Everest Base Camp Trek, the Cho La Pass Trek, and the Gokyo Lakes Trek with a Helicopter Shuttle ride straight from Gokyo all the way back to Lukla!

P.s – if you’re shorter on time we can even arrange a Helicopter all the way down to Kathmandu from Gokyo. And cut down on the days in Kathmandu. Let us know! Fly to and back to the ‘Gateway of Everest’ at the world’s most adventurous airport at Lukla. Trek on beautiful paths to villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, and Dingboche as you make your way to the Everest Base Camp. Hike to the famous vantage point of Kala Patthar and revel in the panoramic sight of the entire Mount Everest massif.

Walk from Dzongla to Thagnak through the Cho La Pass – one of the highest and most difficult passes on the Everest Trail. Cross the longest glacier of the Himalayas – the Ngozumpa Glacier, to turquoise waters at Gokyo – the highest lake in the world. Summit the peak of Gokyo RI at 5,360 meters for the best views of the Everest massif of the entire trip.

Adding the cherry on top, take a scenic Helicopter ride from Gokyo all the way down to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu again.

This is the best of Everest that you can get without having to climb the mountain itself (of course).

Join us on this trip to the heart of Khumbu for the ultimate adventure on the Everest Base Camp with Gokyo Heli Shuttle Trek.

Reviews

Samantha, USA The whole experience was very good, Bhim is an excellent guide and I would really recommend him to anyone who is looking for guide in the hiking trail and trekking journey. He is efficient, and he has a vast amount of knowledge regarding the journey, and that was very helpful in my trek. I had undergone the Annapurna Panorama Trek and the views and sceneries were all amazing and very beautiful. The trekking was also very fun and I enjoyed it a lot. Bhim helped me with the trek and explained quite a lot of things on the way about everything we came across. The whole experience, in my opinion, went by pretty fast because it was enjoyable so much! Everything went smoothly and very diligently, the staff at Nepal Hiking Team provided the very best service regarding everything! Really enjoyed it! 100/100 would recommend!

We did a 14 day Annapurna Circuit trek with Nepal Hiking Team 28 Apr - 12 May 2022. Communication leading up to the trip was fantastic, and we felt we had all the information we needed for this big adventure, one we'd never done the likes of before! We had Indra as a guide and Gakul as a porter and they were such great company. We learned so much more about the wilderness, region, and country we were traveling through because of them! Card games, board games, words, culture, we learned so much just hiking and chatting with Indra and Gakul. At almost every teahouse, we managed to get a bed that could sleep two, which was a pleasant surprise. We always had pomegranate seeds and apple slices for dessert, courtesy of our guide and porter. Ordering food and arranging accommodation was a breeze with them helping us. Other groups we saw hiking on their own looked like they had a good time, but they mostly socialized amongst themselves. With our guide and porter, we got to meet other guides and porters and learn about where they came from, which made the experience much deeper and more authentic to us. We were on the fence about hiring a company to help us with the trek, but are so glad we went with Nepal Hiking Team! Would 100% hire them again for our next trek.

Madhu, India After coming across many excellent reviews about Nepal Hiking Team, I decided on a whip pretty much to just go ahead with this one. But, in all fairness, I was pretty surprised and warmly pleased with the assistance of Ganga, especially the people who were all very friendly and helped me a lot on my trek. I loved the scenery of the trek and the experience of going to Nepal, being among the local people, and seeing all the wonderful surroundings; it was very memorable. NHT is a great trekking agency, and I approve of it. I will surely be taking their help if I ever decide to have another go at trekking in the future! Big thanks to Bhim Guide and Ganga - Owner of this outfit.
Pamela, Australia Nepal Hiking Team proved to be effective from the moment of my arrival at the airport. The guide for my trek, Arun, was very good and he was jovial to be around. So, I enjoyed myself a lot. The package that I selected for the Everest Base Camp Trek was very reasonably priced and I did not have any sort of unnecessary hassle along the trek as well, everything just went by super smoothly and quite fast too!! I love travelling, and have taken to many travel agencies, and I must say, Nepal Hiking Team comes under one of those who provide good services to the people who take its help. Definitely a five-star rating! Choose Nepal Hiking Team if any of you are planning for the trek in Nepal, I definitely recommend!
Nicky N Prasad, Australia I had always wanted to do the Everest Trek, and when I finally had the opportunity, I was delighted with enthusiasm! I think I am also fortunate to have been in the company of Nepal Hiking Team because they gave me no reason whatsoever to companion about anything at all. Every service I received was top-notch, and I was always provided the best available services, from the food and guesthouses to the porter and guiding services. My guide was Paban, and he was very proficient at his work. He made sure that I was comfortable and had everything I needed. The trip was terrific, and I am so glad I was with NHT! Their prompt responses, their kind gestures, and the best organization of the trip had me convinced that I was with the professionals from the very beginning. My recommendation goes to Nepal Hiking Team for being one of Nepal's most reliant tour agencies!
