Do you know that Everest region of Nepal is the only place where people find maximum number of mountains at their sight while walking? Unlike other trekking regions of Nepal Khumbu has its own peculiarity. A classic trekking to Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lake and Cholapass is one of popular trek among Everest Region including Everest Base Camp Trek. Our trek begins with about 28 minutes thrilling flight to Lukla, which is remarked as one of adventurous airport in the World. Escaping from the city crowd and getting at the Lukla Airport makes you feel that you are already in adventure of Lifetime.
If you are craving for a place where you can sit on the shores of blue turquoise lake and observe gigantic mountain peaks bleeding to fill the lake then Everest Gokyo Valley Trek via Everest Base Camp is an ideal choice. Scenic Nepal Treks & Expeditions dissected two very popular trekking routes to make this wonder trail. Some parts of Everest Three High Passes Trek and Everest Base Camp Trekking are mingled together to form this marvelous Himalayan walking trail.
EBC Gokyo Valley trek with Choalpass offers you an incredible experience of trekking in Nepal. Begins with breathtaking flight to lukla and landing at Tiny Lukla airport already makes you feel you are on adventure of Lifetime. Gokyo valley (4750 Meters), Chola pass (5420 meters) and Mount Everest Base Camp (5360 meters) are our main destinations. Besides this the Himalayan Sherpa People, front views of Giants Peaks over 6000 meter including Mount Everest, Biggest Himalayan Glacier of Khumbhu, Himalayan legend animal YAKS are some of main attractions of this trip.
A 14 days trek; 12 days up and 2 days down. Everything was professionally organised upon landing at Kathmandu. Warmly greeted by the Scenic Nepal team. We were advised of the arduous journey ahead prior and to prepare adequately. It was an exciting journey ahead, from the famous Tenzing Hillary airport to Kalapather and of course the EBC. We were a group of 5 managed by our lead guide Kumar and his assistant Ramesh together with 2 strong porters. Throughout the journey, our guide made sure that we were adequately prepared and healthy enough before starting the trek each day. He relentlessly reminded us to drink plenty of water to prevent AMS, and obviously NONE of us had any AMS symptoms at all! At the most dangerous part of the trek, the cho la pass trek, our guide risked his own body by carrying our bags and helping us getting across icy boulders towards gokyo. He patiently waited for those falling behind and made sure everyone get it through the day. A very very responsible guide indeed. Scenic Nepal never fails to deliver. This is our second time travelling with them and I am sure it is not the last.
I completed the 12 days Everest Base Camp trek, visited Chitwan National park and Pokhara all organized by Dipendra at Scenic Nepal Treks. Couldn't have asked for a better service by Dipendra and my amazing and very experienced guide Shankar during the trek and my stay in Nepal (1 month), meeting, drop off at airport, sightseeing in Kathmandu and Pokhara. They where both there for me all the time giving me advise, booking transport, tours and accommodation. I am so happy that I booked my tours and trek through Scenic Nepal Treks and highly recommend you to do the same if you plan to visit Nepal. Thank you and I will be back next year for Annapurna!
It was my first visit to Nepal, though being a short getaway was marked by a great experience along with Dipen, Rajan and the rest of the group member - guides & porters. We were well taken care of and made to feel at home during the trek. It was totally enjoyable with them being cheerful, friendly and playful throughout. The view and scenery itself needs no further description, though being marred by wet weather most of the time was still breathtaking and overwhelming. The beautiful quaint little villages, the different layers of forest and vegetation and not forgetting too the majestic Annapurna Himal range! They used to say once is never enough for Nepal. I certainly concur and am looking forward to returning for more while having Dipen and his group being first in mind to lookout for.
