Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri(peak) Trek is a beautiful journey to the enticing Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri which is one of the most amazing viewpoints for Mt Everest and other Himalayas. Your 14-day trip begins in Kathmandu where we start our day by visiting UNESCO world heritage sites which highlight Nepal’s beautiful culture and religious heritage and finish our day preparing for the trek ahead.
Our Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is an alternative to classical treks in the Everest region and is one of the most adventurous treks in Nepal which leads you through the glacier valleys and high mountains. It is the perfect package for those travellers who want to enjoy the beauty of Himalayas.
You-in’s Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri trek is for those who would like to walk in the Everest region without the physical stress of reaching the base camp of Mt.Everest or crossing high passes in the vicinity. It is instead for travellers who wish to try something different in the Everest region.
The main destination of the trek is the sight of Gokyo Lakes, which resides in the Eastern region and is the home of the most noteworthy slope of the world – Gokyo Ri, and a few other of the Himalayan Lakes close by. Gokyo Lakes offers you the most crystal clear and blue waters that are bound to leave you speechless.
Gokyo is located in the valley immediately west of the Khumbu Valley and is far less crowded than its better-known neighbour to the East. Gokyo valley has only one traditional permanent settlement; the rest being summer pastures now catering to the passing trekkers.
This trek takes us to the turquoise Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri which provides exceptional views of Everest and the Himalayas. We also get to marvel at the massive Ngozumpa Glacier and the Gokyo Valley from Gokyo Ri.
Going through the Khumbu on the way, you can observe the scenic views of the towering mountains. Our Trekking team will cover many important places in terms of glamour like Namche Bazaar, Ngozumpa glacier, and Lukla.
From Gokyo RI, you can also get the best view of Mt.Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu,
For those who wish to visit Everest Base Camp for the closer view, you can extend your trip to include Everest Base Camp, please contact our team for more information.
