About
Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes, recognized for the series of beautiful turquoise lakes in the Gokyo valley and the famous Cho La Pass, takes us through the landmarks of the Khumbu region in the company of majestically soaring mountains, friendly Sherpas, colorful monasteries, the Namche Bazaar, the Sagarmatha National Park, and, of course, to the base of the mighty Everest. The trek in advancing to the base of the world's tallest mountain maps out spectacular vistas from such celebrated viewpoints like Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar. The trek also awards us with great views of the Khumbu Icefall. Trekking to the Everest Base Camp through Gokyo Lakes, in a nutshell, will be a lifetime experience with the enthralling sights of Mt. Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Nuptse, Amadablam, Pumori, and Tengboche Monastery - the largest monastery in the Khumbu region of Nepal.

All meals will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners for guests.
  • Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for this trip.
  • In difficult treks you are likely to walk for 6-8 hours, cross steep hilly terrain and occasional high passes with daily ascend and descend of around 500-1000m. You are likely to be on a remote environment with extreme weather in some days where you might be facing high altitude air with low level of oxygen and only basic facilities on some nights. Previous trekking experience, physical fitness and positive attitude are therefore essential.
  • Your safety is of paramount concern while traveling with Himalayan Glacier. Please note that your leader has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the itinerary if it is deemed necessary due to safety concerns. Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary; however, since this adventure entails travelling in remote mountainous regions, we cannot guarantee that we will not deviate from it. Weather conditions, health condition of a group member, unexpected natural disasters, etc., can all contribute to changes in the itinerary. The leader will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if required. Please note that often the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter rescue in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you to be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have a few days of your buffer days left then you may even engage yourself in optional activities which can be arranged by Himalayan Glacier upon request. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc. In case the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other region. If you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather wait for your original preferred trip, you are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for as many days as it takes to get a flight to Lukla. However, please note that there will be no refund, if you lose time waiting at the airport and do not take an alternative tour or you only do a short trek later due to time limitation. If the cancellation happens before the trip, we will provide you accommodation and lunch in a guesthouse in Kathmandu. In case of the flight delay/cancellation after finishing of the trek, you will be responsible for all your expenses. Please also note that you will not be entitled to any refund for the services (such as hotel, transport, flight, etc.) included in the package that you would not use later.
  • We will be accommodated in Yatri Suites & Spa or Hotel Moonlight or Similar in Kathmandu and teahouses during the trek. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional USD 515. Himalayan Glacier will arrange rooms with attached washrooms; however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.

Excellent Guide and Safe
Oct 2019
This was my first time being above 5000 metres and multiple day hike for more than 3 days. I am not that fit :p. Our guide, Ganga (Man) Bahadur Tamang ensure that we are all safe. He was joyful and full of encouragement, and really keen to make his client successful in the climbing.
We all made it to the base camp and no one get sick. Man ensures all of our food and drinks are clean by entering the kitchen himself.
We have the best porter too, Jiban. He assisted carrying my day bag too to help in the Chola Pass and Everest Section when he saw I am struggling.
Both Man and Jiban go far and beyond to make us comfortable, enjoy the trip, and safe. Putting our guide Man phone number here, and photo. +977 984 2868506

Amazing trip, amazing guide
I have just finished the most amazing experience of trekking in Nepal with Himalayan Glacier. The company were always helpful during the booking process. The trip itself was incredible. My guide Man was fantastic. We were looked after so well with hot teas in the morning in our rooms and daily cookies and chats after each day trekking. As well as making sure we were well looked after, Man was very keen to keep us safe, hiking at a suitable pace and ensuring our food was clean and safe.

After the trek we had a celebration dinner with the companies owners who were eager to hear how we had got on.

I couldn't recommend the company more. I suggest you request Man as your guide and you'll be guaranteed a successful and fun trip.

Amazing experience!
I had done a lot of research into companies to choose for completing a trek to Gokyo then over the Cho La Pass and up to Everest base camp. I settled with HGT as I liked the itinerary, the positive reviews and the price. I was not disappointed with my choice. My trek ended up being solo but was still great. It gave me a little room to move with the itinerary as we went which was great.

From the start my contact with Rayuna who was my travel planner sent me a detailed list of things I needed to do and know before coming to Nepal. She also answered every question I had prior to my trek with great detail and effeciency.

On my arrival to Nepal I was met by my guide Sudar who looked after me for the whole trip, always there when I needed him. A highly professional guide who not only would help me out but would help others out if they needed. A lot of other guides also would seek his opinion or help at various stages throughout the trek. Any question I had for him he would answer or find the answer. He knew all the mountains and heights. I was highly grateful to have him as my guide and we devoloped a life long friendship.

Not once on my trek did I feel unsafe or pushed along by Sudar. He was very attentive to all my needs and always making sure that I was doing fine. He also carried and extensive medical kit for any ailments that may occur along the way.

My porter Bir was fantastic, doing all the heavy lifting so to speak. HGT look after the porters that they use which is a major thing for me as some porters on the mountain can be taken advantage of. Bir had all the adequate clothing and equipment to make sure he was safe and well on the mountain. He even had crampons for one of the glacier crossings we did near the Cho La Pass which was good.

The city tour of Kathmandu was great and very interesting, allowing you a day to see the city and its tourist attractions. I had a private car with a/c and another guide who was very informative.

Also the welcome dinner was fantastic. The food absolutely amazing and the dancing and singing from the different areas of Nepal was great to see and hear.
At the end of the trek you have a farewell dinner which was again great, tasty food in a very nice restaurant.

The hotel in Kathmandu, Hotel Moonlight is a very nice place to stay, very clean and free buffet breakfast is a plus. The location is great with it being on the edge of Thamel so not far to walk in and explore.

The trek itself was an amazing experience, acclimatization days are good to help with altitude, the tea houses that you stay in are basic but get the job done for resting and sleeping. The food is fairly good throughout. The best you will get is in Lukla, Phakding and Namche but that being said the food for the most part was good, considering where you are! Dal Bhat is a good option if you are hungry, although altitude does suppress your appetite.
You do spend a few days breaking the 5000m mark which is taxing on the body but a good challenge.

You get several views of Everest on the trek, one of the best is from Gokyo Ri but weather permitting of course.

HGT give you a T-shirt, duffel bag and map of the trek to keep which make great souvenirs.
They also supply you with a warm sleeping bag for the mountain and a down jacket for when it's super cold which I didn't need.

I highly recommend this trip, Gokyo Lakes shouldn't be missed. The Cho La pass climb is tough but such an amazing challenge to complete. Then there is base camp, which is just such a cool place to be, standing at highest base camp in the world. I went on the trek in the middle of May so base camp is busy which is awesome to see. The weather was mostly good with mornings super clear and afternoons cloudy.

Definitely check out this trek if you like a challenge and you want to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, you will not be disappointed.

Well organised and friendly company, easy to deal with
Apr 2019 • Friends
We had a great trip, largely due to the efforts of our guide Ashish. It was well organised and Ashish took care to minimise risk in terns of food and altitude. With nice weather it resulted in a fantastic trip we will remember for years to come. Sure there are cheaper tours around but we got great value in terms of our experience and the inclusion of everything in the trip meaning minimal additional expenses. No fuss, great value highly recommended.

What an adventure!
Nov 2018 • Friends
Did the EBC Trek via Gokyo Lakes and Cho La Pass in November/December and had a first class experience all the way! It was just my nephew and I on our trip along with Rishi as our guide and Foo-man as our porter. As promised, Rishi met us at the airport and took care of us until we got back to the airport in Kathmandu. Some of the guest houses were better than others and we found the conditions are little more "basic" the closer we got to EBC but what do you expect. I would highly recommend HGT for a trip as they seemed to be the only ones that carried hand sanitizer with them (may not seem like much but it is very important to have) and also fresh fruit for our enjoyment. Also at each tea break, Rishi provided us with Oreos or other cookies, again not a big deal but what a great unexpected extra. Rishi's English was very good and we had no issues with communication. Another nice touch was that I got worn out on the "optional acclimatization" hikes so our porter gave up his days off and came along with us and carried my back pack. He also carried tea in a thermos for us to EBC to enjoy along the way. I would definitely use a guide for this trip as we noticed some people doing it alone or in groups of two and having difficulty making sure they were headed in the right direction, thankfully Rishi was able to help them out. It is a very hard trip but just remember it is one step at a time and the beauty of the mountains is priceless and enjoy every moment!

My wife and I booked a recent trip to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes and Cho La Pass. We can't express enough gratitude for the wonderful treatment we received from the entire Staff at Himalayan Glacier, (especially Pramesh and Narayan) which greatly exceeded our expectations making this adventure a complete success. Charlie the United States contact stated that from start to finish we would be taken care of and that we were. From when we landed in Katmandu to when we departed, Himalayan Glacier Staff assisted in any way possible to ensure our trip as problem free as it could be. From itinerary changes, Flight adjustments, Airport transportation for our entire stay and other travel needs that might arise. During our time Trekking with our Guide Ashish and assistant Guide Bhakta we were well watched over and all of our needs were met. The conditions on the Mountain in November are challenging, especially dealing with the cold and altitude, their expertise and experience was invaluable. Without it we would not have had the incredible experience we did. The other integral part of this trek was our awesome porters Char and Rhana who carried our duffel bags with 15kg per bag (each porter carried two) up the mountain and had them waiting for us at each stop. We also used Himalayan Glacier to book a trip into Tibet after our Trek, they handled all the necessary travel arrangements from contracting with a tour company in Tibet, securing of a Chinese Visa and providing the do's and don't of travel and behavior while in Tibet. We would, without hesitation, highly recommend Himalayan Glacier and would most definately use them again.
