TREKKING EVEREST-GOKYO, Día 11:
Los Lagos de Gokyo

Blanca de las nieves y Jorge

15 Octubre 2012

El día anterior llegamos a Gokyo, este singular lugar situado a 4.790m donde suele hacer mucho frío, salvo en las horas centrales del día en que el sol calienta un poco.

Hoy Champi, Marie Claude, Jesús y Ana se bajarán a tierras más templadas, en busca de zonas de campos, bancales y paisaje menos árido.
Blanca y yo nos quedaremos un día aquí para subir por la morrena del Glaciar Ngozumba hacia el norte y ver los lagos de Gokyo. Además, desde el fondo parece que se vuelve a ver el Everest.

Salimos sin peso y sin prisas, pues se trata de un paseo de poco más de 200m de desnivel suave. Sin embargo, yo noto el cansancio acumulado de haber subido2 veces al Kalapattar (que ya me vale) y, sobre todo, por la larga etapa de ayer, en que pasamos el Cho-La (5.420m) y luego tuvimos que cruzar el Glaciar con sus continuos sube y baja.

Blanca va tan tranquila, caminando como Pedro por su casa. Yo, en cambio, me canso en cada subida, por pequeña que sea. Qué flojo estoy! Estaré malo??

Aun y todo, disfrutamos de un paseo por una zona de alta montaña, sin vegetación, árida pero espectacular.
Nada más levantarse uno en Gokyo, lo primero que ve es la mole del Cho Oyu, ese ochomil que preside el valle. Desde él se continua toda la cordillera que separa Nepal del Tibet. Divisoria que apenas está por debajo de los 8.000 metros y que termina enlazando con el Everest.

Salimos de Gokyo, donde está el 2º lago. Una hora después pasamos por el tercer lago, el Thonak y, ya al final, llegamos al cuarto y quinto lago. Los Ngozumba (con el mismo nombre del glaciar).
En un tramo en que la senda se mantiene alta sobre el valle, se puede ver el Everest a través del collado del Changri La (5.812m).

Volvemos a Gokyo, donde pasaremos el resto de la tarde leyendo y hablando con la familia que lleva el Snowland Lodge. Son encantadores. Al día siguiente bajaremos del tirón todo el valle de Gokyo, en una jornada de vistas espectaculares.

 Volvemos a la aldea de Gokyo


 Esta era la encantadora famila del Snowland Lodge de Gokyo.
En ese momento el padre estaba fuera haciendo algo y sólo pude fotografiar a la madre con los niños.
Nima, el de 11 años, ayudaba a todas horas con un increíble entusiasmo y desparpajo. Hablaba inglés, pues en invierno baja 6 meses a la aldea de Khumjung, de donde era Tenzing Norguey y donde Hillary construyó una escuela.
Entre la madre, el padre, el hijo y a veces la hija, se ocupaban del bebé, que tenia entonces unos 5 meses

U
Un mes más tarde, nuestro amigo Enrique Lardiés completó el Trekking de los 3 Collados (Kagma-Chola-Renjo La) y se alojó en este mismo lodge, entregándoles la foto que les habíamos hecho semanas antes.
Muchas gracias por el detalle Enrique!!


 En Gokyo por las noches la temperatura caía en la habitación a los 0º (en octubre). Aquí marca +2ºC.
Enrique, que vino en noviembre, sufrió temperaturas mucho más frías que las nuestras


Una de las claves del peso en la mochila en este trekking es llevar un saco que abrigue pero que no ocupe.
Al igual que el año pasado, repetimos con el Raid Adventure de TrangoWorld. Pesa 650g y no ocupa nada.
Te permite dormir bien hasta los 0ºC (Conform +4ºC, Límite -2ºC). Es una maravilla. Se puede llevar a cualquier parte y, salvo fríos extremos, te mantiene caliente sin problemas.



Para ver el resto de las fotos, podéis pinchar aquí


Al día siguiente bajaremos todo el valle de Gokyo, en un día de bellos contraluces y cambio de paisaje a medida que vayamos perdiendo altura.
Una de las etapas más vistosas del trekking.

Continuará...

  1. In November 2012, I did the 14day trek to Mount Everest base camp. I decided not to go with an organised group / tour, and had a Nepalese guide recommended to me through someone on Trip Advisor. My reason not to go with one of the large organised company, is that I wanted to ensure the money went all the the Nepalese people - who work so hard. If you use Nepalese company / guides - it is cheaper and the big companies are not taking a big cut.

    The guide I was recommended was Sanjib Adhikari, http://www.nepalguideinfo.com/ or you can reach him on sanjib-adhikari@hotmail.com, was a great guide. He has been doing treks for the last10+ years, and speaks very good english. He arranged everything exactly how I wanted, he gave me good advice before getting to Nepal and on of course on the trek.

    When I got sick with what we thought was altitude sickness, but turned out to be food poisoning, he was fantastic, he looked after me and ensure I did the right thing to get better. We made it to Base camp, and I don't think I would have done it without his direction and guidance. I would highly recommend him.

    You have alot more flexibility going with a Nepalese guide than an organised group. The organised group walk to the slowest person, which is frustrating for people who are faster, and pressure for those who are slow and feel like they are holding up the group. I had the most magical once in a life time trip. Please feel free to contact me about the trip or Sanjib.

  2. ¿Qué podemos decir sobre el Annapurna trekking? Fue fantástico, increíble, la gente, el paisaje, nuestro guía Sum y Zorus porteador, muy profesionales y amables. Estamos muy contentos con su amabilidad y hospitalidad. Suma siempre buscaba encontrar las mejores habitaciones y casas de campo para nosotros y Zorus estaba cuidando de nosotros para no caer. Recomendamos agencia Kabi Raj para todos los excursionistas. Habla Inglés y un poco de español Sum también habla muy bien chino Gracias por todo! Esperamos volver pronto a Nepal. Namaste!

  4. There is no substitute for personalized attention. I traveled to Nepal to visit Everest Base Camp. I traveled alone and had certain trepidation about traveling on my own, but I also knew I wanted to escape the pressures of trekking in a large group. Altitude and safety are paramount on mountain treks and I did not want to end-up hyperventilating trying to keep-up with faster, fitter, trekkers.
    Even though, I have altitude experience, I relied heavily on my guide's advice regarding what to eat, pace, and hydration. I have climbed and summitted Mt. Kilimanjaro, so I was confident I could complete this trek, but nothing can prepare you for the terrain of the Hymalayas. It is truly a humbling experience.
    Mr. Adhikari came highly recommended by other trekkers, who were only too willing to write positive and detailed letters of recommendation. I found that all their recommendations were more than true. Mr. Adhikari has been to Everest Base Camp more than 50 plus times, as a woman traveling alone, I found his level of professionalism refreshing. I cannot count the times, Mr. Adhikari truly saved me from my inexperienced trekking self. He ensured I would
    not be run over by a Yak, horse, or donkey, kept me focused on the difficult terrain, and somehow ensured I stopped long enough to enjoy the scenery (in spite of my exhaustion). I shudder to think what my trek would have been like if I'd been just another trekker in a large group. I have to comment that I have never been so healthy-stomach wise at altitude.
    Mr. Adhikari explains that when organizing for larger groups, he makes provisions for trekkers like me who tend to walk at a slower pace. I thought for sure that, this time, my ambition had superseded my ability, but thanks to Mr. Adhikari, my long time dream of seeing Everest Base Camp first hand came true. I was able to spend time in the rarified air and observe camp life, took plenty of pictures, and asked Mr. Adhikari numerous questions about his experiences around the area. I so wanted to see the famous "ice fall." it was helpful to have a guide who spoke Nepali and who is so friendly. At a time when all one's body wants to do is rest, it was nice that my guide struck-up conversations with other climbers. He pointed out that some of the people passing me were not base camp visitors, but climbers in training-those hoping to summitt Everest. They use the road to base camp and the surroundings as a sort of conditioning track.
    I was very aware of the economic implications of traveling with a Nepali Operator vs. a foreign trekking company. I wanted my trip not to only be a self-serving adventure, but numerous travel books suggest that traveling with a Nepali Operator does ensure more of the money goes and stays into the Nepali economy. I was unsure how the whole experience would unfold, but I am staying here and going to Annapurna Base Camp with the same operator. Mr. Adhikari seems to be grounded on the mountain community ad well as in Kathmandu. It was reassuring to see he has good and long standing relationships with other guides and the mountain community.

    I need to add that you should come prepared and bring a permanent marker. There is a large boulder marking the entrance to Everest Base Camp. The boulder is covered with trekker signatures. The smaller boulders and stones are covered with messages from those lucky enough to have been there.
