    Everest Basecamp via Gokyo

    With five 8000-meter climbers in our team, the pressure to go to the Himalayas has been immense! So, it is with great satisfaction that we now can welcome you to a special trek to Everest Basecamp! The trek does not follow the normal way in, but via Gokyo! This will give you a very picturesque route and with our local staff it will blend in the culture and the warmth of Nepal along the path.

    The plan is to even fit in a mountain, probably Lobuche East so that you can marvel at the surrounding giants of Everest, Nupse and Lhotse from a real peak. We have also timed the trip to visit Everest BC at is seasonal peak when it is lots of action high up!

    The trip starts with meeting up in Kathmandu in October 2020 and we’ll be there for 3 weeks.

    Final prices and confirmed itinerary and dates coming soon – but if you are interested get in touch with us right now!
