Gokyo Valley Trekking is a legendary trek that encompasses the view of grand Everest (8,848m), Lhotse(8511m), Makalu (8463m) and Cho Oyo (8021m) which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake and many more other surrounding peaks, icefall off the Ngozumpa Glacier largest glacier in Nepal, mountain lake scenery and many more countless memorable views. One of the most remarkable features is the view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2922m) located in Khumbu region. This conventional trek truly is a blessing that offers the best of this region.
Gokyo Valley Trekking begins after a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip. Then, the adventure really begins after following a trial along the bank of Dudh Koshi River and reaching the Namche bazaar. We will have rest days in the villages of Namche bazaar that will allow us to explore the region..Also at Namche the we do interaction amongst the mountain people also known as Sherpa’s, also famous for mountain climbing and acclimatize with these beautiful people and we stay at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything is organized in conjunction with local Sherpa guides. Along the trek we will pass Buddhist monasteries with the views of Everest and other snow towering mountains getting closer by the day, which is very important. After trek to Gokyo Ri (5,483m) and having a close view of heart melting mountains we return at a leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.
Gokyo valley trekking is perhaps the most amazing trekking route, because, the trail follows closest to the Everest base camp. After having two night stay for acclimatization at Namche, is an alternative route to traditional trails to the Everest base camp. .Apart, from this, this is equally popular for the hospitality and the warmth offered by the local Sherpa people inhabitating in this small mountain town. Each stop in Gokyo Valley Trekking has its own charm and beauty This trek truly highlights everything Khumbu and Everest have to offer and is an excellent trip for those seeking a wide range of views, nature and scenery during their expedition.
