What to see along the way to hike Gamagou, the base camp on the east slope of Mount Everest

Gamagou is located between Dingri County and Dingjie County in the Xigaze Region of Tibet. It extends from Chentang in the east to Mount Everest in the west. It is a beautiful undulating valley with an elevation of 2,000 to 5,000 meters. The entire valley is inaccessible, with the best-preserved and largest virgin forest in the Mount Everest region. Gamagou has been isolated from the world for a long time, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, without external intrusion, and the only means of transportation is the yak. Many explorers have been impressed by the fantastic beauty here and praised Gamagou as “the most beautiful valley in the world”.

The scenery in the valley changes throughout the seasons, and the alpine rhododendrons are blooming, presenting a different Everest ecosystem to the world.

Equipment needed for trekking at Gamagou, the base camp on the east slope of Mount Everest

There are no Tibetan settlements during the whole trekking on the east slope of Mount Everest Base Camp, and most of them are mountaineering camps. Therefore, camping equipment needs to be prepared for the whole journey. In addition, it is also necessary to equip with good waterproof jackets and high-top hiking shoes, as well as snow cover, sunglasses and other shade and warm equipment.

It is also worth noting that because the terrain of the Everest East Slope Base Camp is complex and changeable, it is necessary to be equipped with a local guide to safely find the correct route. The presence of yaks and yak workers will also help you reduce the burden during the hike.
