Trip Introduction

Gokyo valley trek is one of the very well-known and  adventurous trekking routes of Nepal. Gokyo valley trek presents to you an extraordinary and once in a lifetime experience to witness the beauty of the world’s tallest and

prettiest mountains, exquisite glaciers, including Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest glacier in the whole Himalayan and second largest in the world. It is possible to trek on the Gokyo valley throughout the year, but the best time

to trek are the periods from March to May and September to December.The beginning of this trek commences with a 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This journey takes you through the magnificent valleys of Dudh

Koshi, rich in atypical biodiversity, century’s old Buddhist monasteries, and traditional Sherpa villages and finally brings you to the footsteps of the renowned Namche Bazaar, the epitome of Sherpa civilization, and a gateway to classic Everest route.

Also, it offers the picturesque and close-up views of Mt. Everest (8,848m) and other equally splendid peaks like Ama Dablam (6,812m), Thamserku (6,623m), Lhotse (8,516m) and Nuptse (7,861m), after passing two nights at Namche.

After exploring and adapting to high altitude at Namche, we move onward to Dole, Machheremo, Luza and Gokyo, our ultimate target. After this, we climb the Gokyo Ri, which stands 5,357 m tall, to witness the spectacular sunrise at the Himalaya.

Subsequently, two and half hour walk later, the view from the ridge above the Gokyo peak is incredible. Four peaks which stand taller than 8000m are visible from Gokyo Ri, including glorious Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and

Makalu, and the beautiful emerald Gokyo lake, along with other smaller mountains.The view of Everest from Gokyo Ri is more stunning than from Kalapatthar.The sight of the terrific ice ridge between the Ghyangchung

Kang (7925m) and Cho Oyu (8201m) is one the highlight as seen by Khumbu. You can extend the trek by going over the Chola pass to Everest base camp, for more remarkable mountaineering adventures to recall.
