The Gokyo trek is one of the most popular treks in the Everest region. The Gokyo valley is located in the eastern part of Nepal.

More that a dozen snow-covered mountain peaks are visible from Gokyo peak (Gokyo Ri) including several 8,000+ meter peaks such as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchaenjunga and Cho Oyu. You also get wonderful views of Ngozumpa glacier - the largest glacier in Nepal. At the base of Gokyo Ri is a small hamlet made up of a few stone houses which is also one of the highest settlements in the world. From Gokyo Ri we can get great views of the lakes in the area, especially the emerald Gokyo lake.

Trekking around Gokyo valley is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. One of the most remarkable views is of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2,922m) located in the Khumbu region.

Join us on this trek and enjoy the Gokyo region. Please see the itinerary section for more details.

“The trek was amazing. It wasn't too difficult with some struggles on the uphill the first two days, however all-in-all it was relatively easy going. The nights were cold but with the sleeping bags provided it was comfortable. The guide, Rajendra was an extremely good guide who helped us through the 5 days and was a great guy who was friendly. The food was great as well as the hotel/hostels we stayed in. The scenery and views were amazing and I will be going back to nepal to hike some more when i get the chance. Amazing experience.”

Early in the morning nearly about 6 am to 10 am, we drive to Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu for a 35-minute scenic flight to Tenzing and Hillary Airport in Lukla (2,804m).

On arrival at the airport, your guide will brief you about the trekking and introduce our porters. Before we begin our trek towards Phakding (2,610m), we have time to explore Lukla while our Sherpa crew sort and load our trekking equipment.

We start the trek by descending towards Dudh Kosi River where we join the main trail to Namche Bazaar, located just above Chaunrikharka (2,713m). The walking is easy and after passing through the small village of Ghat (2,550m) it is a short walk to Phakding.

We continue trekking along the banks of Dudh Kosi, crossing the majestic river many times via suspension bridges laden with prayer flags. After entering the Sagamartha National Park, the trail climbs steeply with breathtaking views.

Namche Bazaar (considered the gateway to Everest) is home to many quality restaurants, hotels, lodges, shops, money exchange services, internet cafes and bakeries. Namche is the biggest town along the Everest trail.

The trail climbs steeply out of the valley through rhododendron forest. Juniper and large conifers start to appear as the elevation increases, making the trek seem pristine and untouched. The trail passes through Yak Kharkas and summer settlements.

The views of Khumbi La and Tawache are magnificent throughout the day today.
