Everest Base Camp - Gokyo Lake Trek

This is one of Nepal’s most famous treks, set amongst breath-taking high mountain scenery, through the Khumbu - Sherpa country. After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen. Through small yak-grazing settlements we reach the Gokyo lakes where we climb Gokyo Peak (5480m) and enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo. From this point we follow a trail heading south for Phortse, then north for Pheriche. After the ascent of Kala Pattar (5545m) and the impressive up-close view of Everest, our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery. We rest here and savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856m), Kantega (6809m), Kwangde (6194m), Nuptse (7879m), and Lhotse (8511m), to name but a few.

Dear Hari,
I just wanted to write to you to thank you for all you did for Pete and I while we were in Nepal. We had a great time and we were very happy with the services provided by Rhino Travel Agency. Bipin was a good guide and, back at your office, Raj was most friendly and helpful, when we returned early to Kathmandu, in arranging our trip to Chitwin National Park.
