Everest Gokyo Lakes Trek

Duration: 14 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

Everest Gokyo Lakes trek presents an exceptional opportunity to explore and experience the beautiful high alpine yak pasture, encounter highland Sherpa people's lifestyle and sparkling glacial lakes in the lap of Everest. 

Everest Gokyo Lakes trek is considered as traditional trekking that offers magnificent views of different mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest glacier in the Himalayas. The image of this region is associated with the towering views of the most popular mountains in Nepal which is at an altitude above 8000m such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu. These mountains are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. One of the most remarkable features of this trek is the view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung located in the Khumbu region.

Everest Gokyo Lakes trek starts after a 35-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2860m). We spent the next few days trekking and interacting with the mountain people, also known as the Sherpa people. We spend the night at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything we do and see has a blend of Sherpa people and their culture. Along the trekking trail, we will pass the legendary Buddhist monasteries which have a splendid view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Ama Dablam and many other snow towering mountain peaks which seem to be getting closer by the day.

We will have rest days in the villages of Namche Bazaar and Gokyo valley that will allow us to explore the regions and to acclimatize, which is essential too. After climbing to Gokyo Ri (5480 meters), we return back to Namche bazaar with easy and gentle steps. We will then catch a flight from Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. The best season to go for Gokyo Lake trek is September to December and February to June and you will be accommodating at the lodge during the trek.
