Jiri to Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lake Trek is a classic trek following the footsteps of early explorers and mountaineers on their way to the Everest Region. This trek is relatively longer than the regular trek as we will be walking for one week on the old trail to Everest but it lets you acclimatize well before crossing the thrilling Cho La Pass (5420m).

Trekking from Jiri to Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lake starts after an adventurous drive through curvy Himalayan roads to the small village of Bhandar. For the first week we will be trekking through terraced farmlands, lush forests and picturesque Sherpa settlements. From Namche Bazar we will deviate our route leaving behind the regular trail to Everest Base Camp and going towards Gokyo Lake. Before heading towards the pass we will be hiking up to the view point of Gokyo Ri to explore the panorama of the majestic Himalayan peaks overlooking the magical blue water of Gokyo Lake. Further on from Gokyo Lake we will go over Cho La Pass and onward to the one and only Everest Base Camp. From the view point of Kala Patthar, we will enjoy the view of Mt Everest and much more that extend to the horizon. Some of the many highlights of this Jiri to Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Lake trek are the terrace farmlands, Sherpa culture & lifestyle, the high pass, picturesque Gokyo Lake, unlimited views of Mt Everest and other Himalayan peaks, all while being at the heart of Mount Everest.
