You begin this trek from Kathmandu as you fly to Lukla, the gateway to Everest Base Camp. From Lukla, you will make your way to Namche Bazzar, which is the commercial hub of the Khumbu region. After a day at Namche Bazar, we begin our uphill climb to Gokyo Valley, passing through rhododendron forests and several suspension bridges.
Gokyo Valley is a small village settlement which consists of 19 freshwater lakes. You also ascend to Gokyo Ri (5,357m) and witness the fantastic view of the whole Gokyo Valley. We make our way to the Everest Base Camp via Cho La pass. The route gets a bit trickier from here due to the steep trail before we finally reach Everest Base Camp (5364m). You can see hordes of tents belonging to mountaineers if you are trekking during peak seasons.
The best time to go on this trek would be during the Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) seasons as temperatures during these seasons are mild with very little chance of unpredictable weather.
