Trekking around the Gokyo valley offers wonderful views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- one of the largest in the world. This trek guarantees the most remarkable views of some of the infamous “eight-thousanders” including Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Makalu, which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri (5360m.) Undoubtedly, one of the most unforgettable sights on this trip will be the view of the spectacular ice point between Cho Oyu (8201m) and Gyachung Kang (7952m) in the Khumbu region.
After a thrilling flight to Tenzing/Hillary airport at Lukla, the adventure really begins. We begin the climb passing Buddhist monasteries and memorials that stand amongst the most captivating backdrops you will have ever seen. You will be seduced by snow capped mountains enveloping tranquil, traditional Sherpa villages and celebrate as you reach altitudes of over 5000m. The trek aspires to reach Gokyo Ri and the glistening waters of the Gokyo Lakes, the world’s highest fresh water lake system.
