A spectacular Himalayan experience for adventure seekers, the Everest - Gokyo Lake is a renowned trek in the upper reaches of the Khumbu Valley. The Gokyo Lake trek is famous for the beautiful Himalayan scenery it offers, including many spectacular Himalayan giants overlooking the trekking trail and the biggest glaciers of Nepal, one of which is the Gokyo lake itself. The trek offers amazing views of Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain peak in the world. This trekking trail is an alternative to the standard Everest Base Camp Trek. One highlight of this trek is the incredible view of the ice ridge between Mt. Cho Oyu and Gyachung.

The trekking trail has you walking through the natural habitat of Himalayan wildlife. Sagarmatha National Park, listed as a world heritage site, encompasses almost the entire Everest region, offers spectacular views of the high mountains, and is home to several different species of rare Himalayan flora and fauna, including musk deer, mountain goats, colorful pheasant, monal, and danfe - the national bird of Nepal. Endangered Himalayan species such as the beautiful red panda and the elusive snow leopard are also found here. Pine and birch trees are common, as well as colorful rhododendron flowers welcoming you with their bright red hue.

Several Buddhist monasteries are located in the lower Khumbu region. These add a religious and cultural nugget to your Himalayan adventure. During the trek, you’ll get to visit the land of the Sherpa, where you’ll find their hospitality as grand as the mountains themselves.
