GOKYO AND AMADABLAM BASE CAMP
The Goyko Lakes and Ama Dablam Base Camp trek is a fantastic way to experience the magic and visual splendor of the Everest region, while avoiding many of the crowds on the Everest Base Camp route.
Trekking days from one rest village to another are short, in order to acclimatize at the appropriate rate and minimize health risks, but afternoon day hikes will also be done to viewpoints and areas of cultural or environmental interest to aid acclimatization and ensure you are able to soak up all of the hidden treasures of one of the most unique and beautiful regions of Nepal.
