The Gokyo trek is a great trekking trail in Nepal. The trek will provide you with superb views of the world's highest mountains, emerald green glacier lakes, and the world's second largest Ngozumpa glacier. From Gokyo Peak at around 5,300 meter you will get a 360 degree Himalayan panoramic view which is one of the best in Nepal, if not the best.

The trek begins with a 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, an airport and the main entrance point to the Everest region. The trail takes us through the lush Dudkosi valley having a rich flora and fauna. We will also encounter Sherpa villages and Buddhist monasteries. After 2 days we will arrive to Namche bazaar, the capital of the Everest region. We will be spending an extra day at Namche Bazar so as to acclimatize properly. During this day we will make a small excursion to a viewpoint where Mt. Everest can be seen.

After Namche Bazar we will follow the trail to Dole, Machhermo, Luza and finally we will arrive to Gokyo village. From Gokyo village we will hike up Gokyo Ri in the morning for a great sunrise over the Himalayas. Atop Gokyo Ri we get amazing views of Mt Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, and Mt. Cho Oyu, including views of Gokyo's 5 green emerald lakes. Another highlight is the massive ice ridge between Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Gyangchung kang at 7,925m.

It is possible to do this trek all year around, and the best times are from the beginning of March to May and from September to December, as the weather is even more favourable. If you are able to walk 6 hours a day you can do this trek. If in doubt as to your physical fitness please add a porter upon booking.

We are looking forward to providing you with a great Himalayan adventure.
