The trek starts from Sundarijal, located on the eastern side of the Kathmandu Valley, and continues via Shivapuri National Park, Chisopani, Kutumsang, Thadepati and Sermathang before coming to an end in Melamchi Pul Bazaar in the Helambu region.

This is a relatively low-altitude trek along a less busy route through temperate forests, green valleys, lush fields and Tamang and Sherpa villages. You will see Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Rolwaling and Gauri Shankar mountains along the route.

“Amazing!!!! If you're looking for an alternative track to Everest Camp, with less crowds and less congestion you won't be disappointed by choosing Gokyo lakes including the Gokyo Ri climb - 5380m! Offering views of crystal clear blue lakes, the largest glacier in the park and ofcourse views of Everest can be seen from here - but not nearly as many tourists on track! The homestays and the families there are very hospital and ensuring that you'll have a warm and comfortable stay. There are a variety of meals to choose from at the home stays with fresh fruit and vegetables - exceptional considering the isolation! Great hospitality with even greater views. The track is a great option too for families / elderly people. I did the track with my mum and it certainly won't be our last time here.”

“This trek was amazing! It is listed as easy, and it is in terms of a relatively untrained person can definitely complete the trek, however for that person it is pretty difficult. Definitely worth it, and a huge feeling of accomplishment at the end! It was a great starting out trek rather than going all the way to base camp, but still with magnificent views of Everest and surrounding mountains. The tea lodges and accomodation along the way were comfortable, nice people and good food. I travelled in winter and although mronibgs and evenings were cold, walking during the day was warm and the lodges were cozy. Winter also made for completely clear skies and beautiful weather.”
