About Trip

Gokyo Lake Trek marks its brilliant strength on offering the exclusive views of the Everest Himalayas, Lakes and the glaciers. Walking through the Sherpa valleys, alpine meadows and passing spectacular  Gokyo Lakes, you hike to the Gokyo Ri, which is magnificent. It is an acclimatizing and an 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, Gokyo 4th and 5th Lakes can be explored from this incredible Gokyo view point 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 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 to the Gokyo valley. Due to the magnificent scenery and rewarding experience, Gokyo valley trek is popular as the alternative trekking of Everest base camp.

September to November and March to May are the best seasons for the Gokyo Valley Trek. Acclimatization is necessary.
