This is an alternative trail to Everest Base Camp. The trail has been developed because the usual route becomes very crowded during the peak season. The trail is equally attractive, as it offers a panoramic mountain view. The route up to Dudh Pokhari and Gokyo Ri surpasses the traditional route. While following the Dudh Koshi River towards its source, one comes closer to Cho-Oyu (8153m.), the sixth highest peak in the world. Leaving the inhabited world behind, one pass through seasonal yak herding pastures and reach high camp on the banks of the Dudh Pokhari. Through this route, Gokyo Ri (5300m.), the highest point on this trek, can be reached.
