snowcat-photo-logo-square-no-text Final Alternative Everest Trek

Ultimate Everest Trek

The alternative route to Everest Base Camp - Gokyo Lakes - Crossing the Cho La - Less busy trails

The ultimate Everest hike? Possibly. For the strong, fit & experienced mountain walker this is a great alternative route to Everest Base Camp. Taking a detour this is a different way to Everest. This trek heads up a side valley to the sacred lakes at Gokyo. An ascent of Gokyo Ri is made for great Everest views before crossing the usually snow-covered Cho La and down through a spectacular valley to emerge at Lobuche and onwards to EBC itself. Climb Kala Pattar for more classic Everest views before descending to Lukla on the usual EBC trails. The altitudes involved in this trek up to EBC demand respect and thus the walking becomes more challenging as a result. Don't forget our trekking holidays are tailor-made and whilst this itinerary includes acclimatisation and contingency days, you can always have more (not less) rest, acclimatisation and contingency days added. The itinerary is merely a suggested itinerary and is  not entirely  'set in stone'. Sleeping bags (4 season) will be required for nights spent in trekking lodges. Additionally we strongly recommend the use of a walking ice axe and "in-step" crampons for the crossing of the Cho La. We can arrange sleeping bag & walking ice axe rental if required.

20 Days - Challenging - Max altitude 5500m - 16 days walking- 3nts Hotels - 15nts Trekking Lodges
