    Gokyo Lakes Trek Reviews

    4.8 - Excellent Based on 40 customer reviews
    Most incredible trip!! Definitely no regrets booking this!! Reviewed Tour: Gokyo Valley Trek
    Beatrice Goad From Australia At
    5 - Excellent
    “My name is Beattie, I'm 21, an Australian studying in the US and I just completed a 10 day trek to Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri. I could not stress more how much I enjoyed this trek and how you will definitely not regret a single thing when you book to trek in the everest region! I usually do not write reviews but this trip was so breathtaking that I just had to champion my guide, Dhana, and Nepal Eco Adventure.

    Firstly, I originally booked with a friend. However, she bailed a month from my departure date. I was originally hesitant to go alone but this should definitely not deter you from trekking in the area if this is a fear of yours. Trekking alone has its own spiritual power you cannot get when you trek in a big group. You can walk at your own pace and take breaks whenever you want! Also, you meet so so many amazing people while travelling solo so you're never really alone.

    Secondly, my guide DHANA was the most amazing companion to have during the trip. He went above and beyond to make my hike enjoyable and smooth. He was such a sweet man who was great company. His English is close to impeccable and is a great card player! He beat me several times at a card game I taught him on the trek. Moreover, he is very flexible and can adjust your trip to your needs. He genuinely cares about you and wants you to have the best trip possible. I would highly recommend requesting Dhana if you are booked with Nepal Eco Adventure.

    Thirdly, the company Nepal Eco Adventure is such a great local company based in Kathmandu. Chhatra, who I originally emailed after booking, met me when I first arrived in Kathmandu and was very warm and welcoming. He is clearly very experienced at what he does and understands the whole system very well - he will be truthful with you and is someone whose word you can trust. Moreover, this company provided me with numerous benefits I had no idea I was actually going to receive. Every night, my oxygen level and heart rate was checked, I received fruit after every dinner and got a free hat and cap upon arriving in Kathmandu. Nepal Eco Adventure is definitely an awesome trustworthy company to book with.

    Finally, the trek itself was amazing and a trip I'll never forget. I trekked in mid December which actually was such a perfect time. The trails weren't too crowded but still enough people were trekking in order to make friends. The lake was frozen over which was still as stunning as ever regardless. Summiting Gokyo Ri was by far my favorite part of the trip. We trekked it around 2:30pm and arrived at the summit just before sunset which was absolutely incredible. My phone died at the summit because it was so cold but luckily I had a film camera (I would highly recommend bringing a film camera or even a disposable as the cold can kill batteries pretty fast - portable charger is another great idea). In terms of altitude sickness, I was very lucky to not feel the altitude too much. Diamox can be taken if needed but I think if you're young and fit the chances are you don't need to take it.

    Some final trips would be: bring chapstick, bring a portable charger, bring a film camera, pack lightly and bring proper hiking socks. Be prepared for potential delays going to and from Lukla as well.

    I could not recommend booking a trek with Nepal Eco Adventure more. I would highly suggest requesting Dhana as your guide as he is not only very knowledgeable about hiking in the Himalayas but is also such a great human as well! I will definitely be back to Nepal and will be sure to book through Nepal Eco Adventure!

    “The Everest Three High Passes trek was very challenging but empowering. Nimesh our guide was very knowledgable, professional and aware of each members' ability and condition, and paced our group and set out the itinerary accordingly. This was the third time we have used "Ace the Himalayas" and as always this trek was professionally organised and meticulously run. Our porters Govinda, Pradip and Biresh were strong and capable, always polite and able to lend a helping hand and smile when needed. The views from the Passes are exceptional and mind blowing. You literally sit amid the giants of the world's mountains, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. If you are fit and capable, and want something a little more challenging than the "up and Down" Everest Base Camp experience, this is for you, and "Ace" the ones to provide it.”

    “We were a pair, that just finished the Gokyo trip. The experience was amazing, and Trekking Planner (Dipak, our guide Bhanu, and all others that helped) did a great job. My girlfriend was worried by altitude sickness, and we had a slow and steady trek, and in the end, we both managed to "climb" to the 5360 m high Gokyo Ri! We are very grateful to Trekking Planner for this experience.

    The weather was amazing (I really recommend going in mid October), and so were the views of course! The culture, nature, food and overall exercise you will do on this trek are amazing. Moreover, after Namche Bazar, it becomes much less crowded (due to the fact, that hundreds go to see Everest Base Camp), and we really wanted to avoid the crowds. The Gokyo valley is peaceful, serene, and offers breathtaking views on Cho Oyu troughout the trek, and on Sagarmatha (Everest) on several occasions (basically, everytime you "climb" a bit higher).”

    “This was my first ever trek so I didn't know exactly what to expect, but it turned out to be quite an adventure !

    The trek is challenging and cruel at times, but mostly it is an impressive and rewarding experience which I can only recommend.

    The organization from Nepal Eco Adventure was pretty good, transfers, accommodation and service was on a very high level. The best part was spending trek time with my guide, Sudip, who was super helpful and well educated about the trekking and mountains in general. On several occasions he made the trip much more comfortable, whether by providing a good advice with altitude related symptoms, helping with my heavy backpack or just setting the mood for the day.

    One word of advice, and this probably goes for all Nepal treks - bring more cash than you think you need ! In the lodges, you will want to have drinks or food not covered by tour's standard menu, as well as some showers etc. The tipping seems to be expected for all services in Nepal, so keep that in mind. The Lukla flights are highly unpredictable, you might have to invest in the helicopter to get back to Kathmandu in time for your international flight (happened to me since my return flight was canceled due to bad weather).


    All in all, 5/5, would go again :)”

    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 Lakes Trek - Itinerary

    The sparkling, pristine green waters of Gokyo Lake - one of five emerald green lakes near Gokyo Village.

    The following is a standard itinerary for the Gokyo Lakes Trek. It may vary slightly depending on the final trekking agency you choose to go with:

    • Day 1: Fly to Lukla (2860 m) and trek to Phakding (2620 m)
    • Day 2: Trek to Namche (3445 m)
    • Day 3: Namche Bazar acclimatization day + walk to Khunde, Khumjung and Everest View Hotel and back to Namche.
    • Day 4: Trek to Dole (4150 m)
    • Day 5: Trek to Machhermo (4470 m)
    • Day 6: Trek to Gokyo (4790 m) Explore around village and Ngozumpa glacier.
    • Day 7: Early morning climb up to Gokyo Ri (5357 m) for sunrise view. Then down to village and rest or walk to fifth lake and back to Gokyo village.
    • Day 8: Trek down to Dole (4150 m)
    • Day 9: Trek back down to Namche (3445 m)
    • Day 10: Trek to Lukla (2860 m)
    • Day 11: Fly to Kathmandu

    An alternative Gokyo Lakes trekking itinerary passes via the Renjo La Pass. By taking that route instead you can trek in a circular route, often lasting 12 days in total. 

    Alternative treks:

    The Khumbu region offers other trekking options besides the 10-12-day Gokyo trek:

    • 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.

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.
