A truly amazing adventure in the Himalayas involves some admirable views of pristine lakes, high soaring mountains, impressive glacier, and epic base of the highest mountain in the world and involves high Himalayan pass crossing. An adventure trekking to Everest Base Camp and then to Gokyo Lakes crossing Cho La pass is such a trip that gives you a thrilling adventure of the lifetime.

This epic trip follows the Everest base camp trekking trail and takes you there to enjoy the charm of the base camp of the highest mountain in the world along with the Kalapatthar hiking adventure. Later, the trek goes towards Gokyo lakes crossing the Cho La pass. You can explore Gokyo lakes; hike to Gokyo Ri and enjoy the Ngozumpa glacier and other charms in the region. The trail after the exploration of Gokyo valley comes to meet the Everest base camp trail at Namche Bazar.

You can undergo this overwhelming trekking experience by adding only 3 extra days on the normal Everest Base Camp trekking days. A total 18 days of the trip shows much more than the normal base camp trip. It leaves you practically speechless and in awe.

NOTE: It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days prior from the actual day from trekking.

If you are able to arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and you get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Similarly, if you can manage a day or two after trekking. In case of any flight delay from Lukla to Kathmandu due to different circumstances you will have lower chance of missing your international flights. Adding some extra days beside actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, any flight delays, and missing international flights

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla:

Tenzing Hillary Airport also known as Lukla Airport, is the small but busiest airport situated on a wonderful valley fenced by high mountains. This airport has been carved into a mountain ridge and sites by a perilous three-kilometers drop. Because of the high location, the weather around here erratic and is likely to be changed in every few hours resulting flight delays and cancelation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only the modes of transportation to and from Lukla Airstrip. However, because of the unpredictable weather of the high mountain reason, there is always the risk of flight cancellation or delays. In some cases, the flights are delayed or cancelled for 2 or more days. Due to the long delays in flight schedule it may hinder your trip. However, we Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition, help you to charter helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, in case of flight cancelation or delays due to harsh and unpredictable mountain weather condition. We will provide you the best service to make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connection.

To charter a helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, you will be charged approximately 2500 USD to 3,000 USD per Helicopter. The helicopter conveys 4 to 5 passengers at a time, so the aggregate chartered fee can be shared amongst the passengers (USD 500 to USD 3000 is applicable per person). The cost of this service is payable directly to our office, and later this can be submitted to the travel insurance company to reimbursement. Our company will provide you with all the required documentations for the claim.
