  Everest Gokyo Lake Trek [ 2693 views ]

[ Share on.. ] 

Everest Gokyo trek takes you up the Dudh Kosi to its source, a tranquil glacial lake below the huge Ngojumba glacier. There are fewer trekkers here than on the route to Base Camp; allowing you to enjoy the quiet of the mountains and its birds and wildlife. The views from the 5200m high Gokyo Peak are stunning and five summits all over 8000m are visible from here: Everest, Lhotse Shar, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu as well as the Ngojumba Glacier (the largest in Nepal), moraine and lakes.


Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is a beautiful journey to the enticing Gokyo lakes and Gokyo Ri which is one of the most amazing viewpoints for great views of Everest and other Himalayas. The 14-day trip begins in Kathmandu where we visit several heritage sites. The Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is an alternative to classical treks in the Everest region. Instead, it 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.
