Who doesn’t want to be at the base of the highest mountain in the world! It is the dream of every adventure trekker and mountain lover. Trekking to Everest Base Camp brings your long desired adventure to reality. Trekking in the Khumbu region through the famous Sherpa villages is such a pleasant experience that you cannot praise it more.
Trekking to Everest Base Camp becomes even more magnificent when it is combined with trekking to Gokyo lakes and the region. Taking a detour from the usual route to Base Camp from Namche takes you to Gokyo where you can see the emerald green lakes tucked in the middle of the mountains. View of the serene and green lakes brings you such a joy that makes your trek experience much better and the route makes it more adventurous. Eventually the route meets at Lobuche and then leads you to Gorakshep, Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar.
Kalapatthar provides a panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks and boasts a stunning sunrise from the high altitude of 5550 meters above sea level. The breathtaking view of the mountains from this magical view point makes you forget the early morning effort you make it to reach the top. Once you reach the top of Kalapatthar, it adds to the joy of being at the base camp of the highest mountain the previous day.
