Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

Hi everyone!

My name is Eugen, I am from Germany and I am planning to trek to the Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Lakes and I am looking for some trekking companions to join me!

Since I allready booked the flight to Kathmandu and since after this adventureI am going to India – the departure date is fixed: we would leave on March 24th from Kathmandu with plane to Lukla and fly on the 8th of April back. The date of the return flight is flexible – depending on how long we would need to do the trek. I have to be in Kathmandu not later than on 10th of April. Our itinerary follows the classic “Everest Base Camp Trek” and takes a turn on the way back and leads us over the Cho La pass to the beautiful Gokyo lakes. I am considering following itinerary with enough acclimatisation days:

Day 1: Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla; Lukla – Monjo
Day 2: Monjo – Namche Bazaar
Day 3: Namche Bazaar (acclimatisation day)
Day 4: Namche Bazaar – Tengboche
Day 5: Tengboche – Dingboche
Day 6: Dingboche (acclimatisation day)
Day 7: Dingboche – Thukla
Day 8: Thukla – Lobuche
Day 9: Lobuche – Gorak Shep – Everest Base Camp – Gorak Shep
Day 10: Gorak Shep – climb Kala Pattar – Gorak Shep – Dzongla
Day 11: Dzongla – Cho La Pass – Thagnak
Day 12: Thagnak – Gokyo (see Gokyo lakes)
Day 13: climb Gokyo Ri – Gokyo – Dole
Day 14: Dole – Namche Bazaar
Day 15: Namche Bazaar – Lukla
Day 16: Flight back to Kathmandu

Would be great to find some company!

  1. Hey! Tal from Canada. I’m in Nepal already working in a hospital, but planning to take 2 weeks off to trek. Was going to start on the 24th as well. My flight home from KTM is on april 7, so I don’t think I’ll have time for gokyo ri, but would join for EBC if you’re keen. I did the Annapurna circuit a couple years ago so I’m reasonably well versed in Nepal trekking.

  2. Hi. I am interested in joining. Im a 35 year old aussie. I’ve trekked ABC before. I was looking into three passes trek bit it’s apparently closed due to snow. Are you planning to book a guide, and if so from Kathmandu, Lukla or namache? Cheers, dan

    • Hi, Daniel! I am going without a guide. Two other people have joined, but they are doing only the EBC trek. So on our way back I’ll head to Gokyo lakes. I hopeto meet other people who will head in that direction or maybe join a group with a guide for a small for crossing the Cho La Pass.

      Cheeres, Eugen
