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.
