Lobuche (16,210 feet/4940 meters) and Gorak Shep (16,942 feet/5164 meters) are both small settlements in the Everest Region, and common stops on the classic Everest Base Camp (EBC) Trek. Here's how to get from Lobuche to Gorak Shep.

On Foot

Duration: 6-8 days

While trekking itineraries in the Everest region do vary, Lobuche is a common place to spend the seventh night of the EBC trek (it could, of course, be where you spend the 6th or the 8th night of the trek, depending on your individual itinerary). It's at a very high altitude, so it's important to have taken your time getting there in the preceding days, to ensure you're properly acclimatized.  

The day after spending the night at Lobuche, awake early to trek to (and pass) Gorak Shep. The trail follows the Khumbu Glacier to EBC itself, the ultimate goal of many who undertake this trek. After some time at EBC, return the way you came, to Gorak Shep, to spend the night there.
