The trek to Everest Base Camp includes only 14 days at the most but offers the same spectacular sceneries as when actually climbing the peak. With the support of an experienced crew and guides and enough rest days, the trek won’t leave you feeling too exhausted but instead rejuvenated and healthy. Gokyo Lake Trek carries various elements of the Everest Base Camp trek yet is able to provide a different experience due to its less busy seasonal grounds. The fairly moderate trek reaches up to 5360m at Gokyo Ri and shows the panoramic scene of Sagarmatha and its ranges along with a wide view of the Gokyo lakes. Similarly, the Three Passes Trek is rather adventurous than the two mentioned above as the trek crosses three of the highest passes in the region, namely: Renjo La (5360m), Cho La (5420m), and Kongma La (5535m).

Best time to Travel

September to November is the ideal time to enjoy trekking or any other mountaineering activities in the region. Due to the onset of autumn, during this time, the mountains look much livelier with the sky clear and with the ‘just right’ temperature.

The Everest region is defined by Sagarmatha but is not limited to it. Give this magical destination a thought and you’ll be surprised by the number of activities you will find worth doing here. Set your dates because the Everest region will guarantee you the best time of your life.
