Everest Gokyo Trekking is an ultimate trekking package to explore the massive mountain peaks, glaciers and the beautiful lakes of the Everest Region. The beauty of Himalayas is spell-bounding. Once you enter in this region you will be stunned with the view of the Great Himalayas – also known as the crown of the world. Everest Gokyo trekking can be the best option for the trekkers who can conquer the high altitudes, walk over the rough trials and can handle the fairy cold climate which exists almost every day. The trial not only offers you the natural beauty but also the traditional and biological brilliance.

The trip begins with a small-plane flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and over the course of 12-days includes a view of the biggest glacier in Nepal, several walks through beautiful rhododendron forests, spectacular views of the stunning Gokyo valley and its jewel-like lakes, and a full-day spent at Namche Bazaar where we can enjoy the views and acclimatize. Throughout the trek, we will also pass through several villages where you can catch a glimpse of the lives, culture and traditions of the people living in these remote mountain lands.

4.0 - Very Good Based on 3 reviews
Great time in the Mountains !!!
Sofie Laursen From Denmark On

“It was my first time in Nepal having the Himalayan experience. My husband and I were planning to spend our holiday in Nepal for a long time, and also it was my longtime dream to trek to Himalaya and be in the mountains. We then finally decided to venture for both Gokyo and Everest Base Camp which later turned into a lifetime experience for us. Having completed this trek successfully with the help of the Glorious Himalaya Team, we had luck with the weather and everything went as per the plan. Despite the cold weather and physical challenges, we made it with the help of porters and our guide Roshan. We enjoyed every moment in the mountains and would like to thank the entire team of Glorious Himalaya for excellently organizing this trip for us. We will definitely be back to Nepal with our children shortly and recommend this trek to everyone!!!”

The trial is flat and easy in the beginning up to Kyangjuma which also provides you the panoramic views. But after that, the trial goes ups and downs to the valley through beautiful rhododendron and pine forests. The trek is found to be more enthusiasm when the rhododendron blooms and provides you its natural scent. In the summer, the Sherpas bring their herds of yaks to graze in these lands. The route passes through the settlements of Mong La (3880m), Tongba (3950m) and Gyele (3960m). We can have the view of Mt. Clolatse (6335m), Mt. Khumbila (5765m), Mt. Tawache (6542m) and Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m) on the way to Dole. Enjoying the view of mountains and beautiful rhododendron, we will be at Dole. Overnight at the lodge, on full board meals.
