The Everest base camp & Gokyo Lakes trek takes you up the Khumbu valley where there aren't as many tourists as on the main trail to the base camp. Experience the hospitality of the Sherpas while enjoying views of Mt. Everest, Amadablam, Thamserku, Cho Oyu and Lhotse from the summit of Gokyo RI or just relax around the turquoise blue water of the Gokyo lakes.
Our trek begins at the heart of the Khumbu valley and proceeds in to the Gokyo valley on the 'off the beaten track'. We make our way up to the Gokyo lakes returning on a slightly different route. Here you will be able to view spectacular mountain scenery and enjoy traditional hospitality of the Sherpa
On this Everest Trek you might be able to meet up with one of 2 remaining Climbing Sherpas from the 53 Everest Expedition. We also provide you with the privilege to stay in the Lodge of Appa Sherpa the world record holder of 16 Everest summits.

I would like to thank Raj for his outstanding role as an educator and an ambassador of his nation. He has not only shown us the true beauty of his beautiful region but also unveiled the facts one can't find in guide books or records. Facts as they really are and not as it is put upfront to you. I have been on 38 organised tours with various tour operators to different countries of the world but the trip with Responsible Adventures exceeds by far.
