    Trip Overview

    Trip Highlights

    • Picturesque flight to Lukla
    • Sherpa valleys- Namche Bazaar and Khumjung
    • Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Valley
    • Hike to Gokyo Ri, the exciting day trip
    • Magnificent 360 panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu

    Everest Gokyo Lake Trek marks its brilliant strength in offering exclusive views of the Everest Himalayas, Lakes, and glaciers. Walking through the Sherpa valleys, and alpine meadows, and passing spectacular  Gokyo Lakes, you hike to the Gokyo Ri, which is magnificent. It is an acclimatizing and exploration hike over 5000 meters, which offers the stunning 360 panoramic views of Mt. EVEREST (8848 METERS), Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and several surrounding peaks. The Ngozumba glacier, and Gokyo 4th, and 5th Lakes can be explored from this incredible Gokyo viewpoint in Everest.

    Trekking to Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Ri embarks from Lukla and leads you through the Sherpa valleys. Passing the Sherpa-crowded town of Namche Bazaar, the trail splits from the main Everest base camp route and heads through the less-trafficked region. The trail is of course rough and the thin air region adds more challenge in the trekking. The huge blue Lake lies in front of you once you reach the Gokyo valley. Due to the magnificent scenery and rewarding experience, the Gokyo valley trek is popular as the alternative trek to Everest base camp.

    September to November and March to May are the best seasons for the Everest Gokyo Lake Trek. Acclimatization is necessary. If you are looking for a professional guide, budget trip cost, and perfectly managed itinerary, please, feel free to contact Nepal Kameleon Holidays.
