Everest Base Camp and Gorkyo Lakes

Hello everyone,

Looking forward to this much anticipated trip!

I have an extra day and a half after the tour in Nepal. Any suggestion for how to spendi the extra time? I was thinking about staying at Everest Panaroma Resort in Damen. I am more interested in nature then monasteries. Any thoughts?

Many thanks!


     Damen is about 4-5 hours outside Kathmandu, on an old road heaing towards the plains. It's a long way to go for a day, although it's in a nice spot. On a very clear day you have a nice view of the mountains, although you will get similar from the Kathmandu Valley on a good day.

There is tons to do in the valley itself, and you could easily fill a day visiting some of the towns in the area. Hiring a mountain bike if the best way to explore outside the city (mind that traffic though!).
