The Everest Base Camp trek is popular, and for good reason! You don’t have to be a climber, we stick to walking on the trekking trails. We fill the traditional trek to Everest Base Camp with the less known Gokyo area, also situated in the Sagarmatha National Park.
During this trek you can see the enchanting lakes of Gokyo and climb the Gokyo peak. Here you have a fantastic view of Mt Everest, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Nilgiri and others. Along the way you pass by several Sherpa villages and can thus meet with the locals. The combination of Gokyo and Everest Base Camp via the Chola Pass makes the trip longer, but also more attractive. Both areas are really worth it.
This is a tough trek for which good health and level of fitness is required.
During the city visits, Kathmandu durbar square and Swayambunath (the “monkey temple”) are visited. Both great attractions to be seen at least once by every visitor of Nepal. Swayambunath is a Buddhist stupa on a hilltop with views all over Kathmandu.
Bhaktapur is a quiet town in the Kathmandu valley, protected world heritage and also known for its pottery, carvings and works of handmade paper (lokta). The last two nights, you can enjoy the tranquility and the local rural life in Dadhikot.
