    “Our leader, Shahid, was fantastic. He was very professional and knowledgeable re: the area and what the trek entailed. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he made the trip more enjoyable than expected. The sherpas, porters and cooks all worked extremely hard and are a credit to the World Expeditions name.Overall the trip was unforgettable.”

    “I appreciated how friendly everyone was, including all of the porters and sherpas. The sherpas did an excellent job of making the whole experience such a memorable one they were always willing to help and make everything so much easier. Once again, Shahid was a wonderful guide and he should be a valuable employee of the World Expeditions company. Thanks once again!”
    Excellent Reviewed Tour: Gokyo & the Renjo La
    Anonymous At
    5 - Excellent
    “A quick note to say how great our trek was! It really was fantastic. We had an excellent group with a good mixture of age, sex and nationality, so that was a real bonus. Our leader Mani Raj Chhetri was outstanding - quiet, unassuming and understated, but completely knew his job and very helpful in supporting all the team members. World Expeditions did themselves proud. Previously I had travelled with another travel company and whilst very good, this time it was Mani who shone out. I also liked the idea of tenting and thought the fixed camps offered an excellent standard of accommodation. So well done. It really was a lovely fortnight and for me personally a really interesting way to see another part of the Himalayas. Last time Base Camp, this time the more scenic and challenging Gokyo Lakes and Renjo La. Having done both trips, Gokyo was pretty special and the walk up the valley is lovely. The Renjo La pass is for those wanting to get off the beaten track, especially in snow and ice conditions, but a really great day in the midst of the Himalayas. By the way, Thame is a lovely town and the walk out to Namche very scenic.”

    Gokyo Lakes Trek - Overview

    Looking for a beautiful trek in the Everest Region with fantastic views of the world’s highest mountains but want to avoid the crowds? Then the Gokyo Lakes Trek is the trek you're looking for.

    Trekking up Gokyo Ri - view back at Gokyo Village

    Situated in the Sulu Khumbu region, the Gokyo Lakes Trek will provide you with quieter surroundings but still jaw-dropping views of the world’s 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th highest mountains - Everest (8850 m), Lhotse (8516 m), Makalu (8463 m) and Cho Oyu (8201 m) respectively. You will follow the Dudh Kosi river up the Gokyo valley to meet its source, the enormous Ngozumpa Glacier. You then open out to see the dazzling series of emerald green lakes, surrounded by rough, lofty and beautiful mountain terrain.

    The Gokyo Lakes Trek will take you through traditional Sherpa villages, notably the village of Gokyo, where not only will you experience local Sherpa culture, but also many herds of yaks – the native hardworking animals of the Sulu Khumbu region. The trek finishes with an early morning trek up Gokyo Ri (5367 m) from which you will be rewarded with unforgettable mountain views of the whole Sulu Khumbu region. For those who are seeking that extra challenge, this is an ideal trek. We promise, you will not be disappointed.

    • Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek is similar to this trek. It explores the Base Camp area as well as the Gokyo valley and can be completed in 14 days.
    • The standard Everest Base Camp trek is another trek in the Everest region and it takes 12 days to complete.
    • If you have less time on your hands then you may want to opt for the Everest Panorama trek, which is a 7-day trek that shows you the beauty of the Everest region within a week.

    Gokyo Lakes Trek - Safety considerations

    We take safety very seriously here at BookMundi, as do all the trekking agencies on Bookmundi.com. All our trekking agencies are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. They will therefore go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting. However, please note the following particulars for the Gokyo trek:

    • This is a high altitude trek and therefore careful acclimatization is needed.
    • Ensure acclimatization days are taken during the trek to avoid altitude sickness.
    • Please make sure you are well prepared for the climate for that part of the season. In the Khumbu region, temperatures can drop to below freezing in late autumn and early spring. The temperature dip even further down during winters.
