Gokyo Lake Trail Trek

A magnificent trek to the Gokyo Lakes, including an ascent of Gokyo Ri, offering superb views of Mt. Everest

Namche Bazaar and Kongde mountain rangeThis wonderful trek takes yoou into the heart of the Khumbu valley. This high-altitude alpine trek explores the heart of the Sherpa homeland, entering to Lukla then visiting Namche Bazaar and Tengboche, before ascending the stunning Gokyo Valley to the glacial lakes under the great peak of Cho Oyu (8153m.). Here we can climb Gokyo Ri 5360 meter for a marvelous view of Everest and the rest of this high mountain wilderness. We rejoin the classic route to Everest Case Camp used by all the great climbing parties when attempting the peak from the Nepalese side.

 

Everest Views from Gokyo RiThere is ample time for acclimatization, and at the higher altitudes we are able to get well away from the most trekked areas. Our aim is to visit the  Gokyo and hiking to Gokyo Ri, which offers another fabulous view of Mt. Everest along with a host of other great peaks. Our 11 days trek will end at Lukla and scenic and panoramic fly back to Kathmandu.
