Everest Gokyo Trekking is the ultimate trekking package for exploring the massive mountain peaks, glaciers and beautiful lakes of the Everest Region. This trip is perfect for experienced trekkers who can handle high altitudes, walking on rough trails and the fairly cold mountain climate. The trail not only offers a trekking challenge but is filled with magnificent views and spell-binding natural beauty of the Himalayas.

The trip begins with a small-plane flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and over the course of 14-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.
