Everest and Gokyo Trek begins by taking an early flight to the Lukla from Kathmandu. From Lukla, we will have a gorgeous day of trekking to Phakding. Then, from Phakding we will carry on towards the north to the gorge of Dudh Koshi, arriving in Namche Bazaar. In the past, Namche Bazaar was just a tiny village, but nowadays, it is a bustling hub for trading and tourism. Many people, especially from Tibet, come to Namche to sell their merchandise. So, it's always nice to stay an extra day to acclimatize to the altitude, and buy some souvenirs to take back home.
Next day you will move from Namche Bazaar to Imja Khola to view the fabulous Khumbu Himal, Kantega, Thamserku and Ama Dablam which are situated in the distance, while governing the foreground are Lhotse and Mt. Everest. Visitors can stay at Thyangboche, which is well-known for its Buddhist monastery. The route climbs up regularly to Imja Khola, finally up and coming over the Dingboche. Dingboche is another beautiful spot to spend an acclimatization day. Again from Dingboche it leads to Kalapatthar through the lateral moraine of the glacier of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse. The places of interest in Everest and Gokyo Trek are Tyanboche, Kalapatthar, sunset views at Everest Base Camp, Nuptse and Lhotse along with many other places. Even the thrilling flight from Kathmandu to Lukla offers incredible views.
The best seasons for the treks are March, April, May, September, October, November and December. However, July and August are supposed to be the good from hiking perspective but sometimes the mountains are not so clearly visible due to rain. It is a moderate trek and you can use tea house for the accommodation. The maximum altitude is 5545km. Tea House is used as an accommodation and minimum group size is only 2.
