  • Witnessing the longest glacier of Nepal, Gokyo Lake & Famous View Points Gokyo-Ri
The main highlights of Everest Kalapathar Gokyo Ri Trek is not only witnessing the longest glacier of Nepal, the "Ngojuma Glacier" and Pristine Lakes of Gokyo but also hiking up to the famous viewpoints Gokyo-Ri from where the following 4 eight thousand meter peaks can clearly be seen: Mount Everest, Mount Makalu, Mount Cho Oyu, and Mount Lhotse. Another highlight is advancing over the Cho La pass, proceeding towards Everest Base Camp and exploring the unique and hardship rewarding sherpa culture.

This Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri Trek follows the Dudh Kosi river and has all of the benefits of the Everest Base Camp trek but with fewer visitors. You will get many moments alone with mother nature, at her fantastic best. Staggering mountain panoramas from the pinnacle viewpoint atop Gokyo Ri are the climax of the journey. Gokyo Ri is probably THE best vantage point in the Himalayas below 6000 meters.

Our professional mountain guide and staff will handle everything, understanding your interests, needs and above all safety along the way. We will of course only ascend slowly making sure that we avoid altitude sickness and acclimatize per the recommendations.

If you're looking for adventure and great trek, this Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek is surely one of the best in Nepal!
