Gokyo Lake Trekking

Gokyo Lake Trekking Gokyo Lake Trekking

Trip Description


Gokyo Valley Trekking is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in the Nepal Himalayas. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an altitude of (8,000m) such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake.
After 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting amongst the mountain people also known as Sherpa’s we stay at local lodges and trekking into the heartland of their villages.  We will have rest days in the villages of Namche bazaar that will allow us to explore the region and to acclimatize, which is very important.  This trekking offers plenty of opportunities to explore the amazing destination and its exciting scene, which is beyond our imagination. After trekking to Gokyo Ri (5,483 meters), we return at a leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.
