The Everest Gokyo Trek is a beautiful journey to the high altitude lakes located in the Everest Valley as well as Gokyo Ri peak which is one of the most amazing viewpoints for incredible views of Everest and the surrounding mountains. The trek takes us to the turquoise waters of Gokyo Lakes which are one of the highest freshwater lakes located at a height of 5100 mtrs. This incredible trek takes you through the Everest Valley, but branches off on the second day from Namche Bazaar. This obscure trail is less frequented by the bulk of the trekkers heading up to Everest Base Camp and so truly gives you the feel of exploring the wilderness of the Greater Himalayas. This trek is perfect for a traveller who wish to try something new in the Everest region as well as giving you the option of doing the Everest Base Camp trek.
This trek features the unbelievable scenery of the remote Gokyo Valley and its turquoise lakes, moonscape-like glaciers and stunning mountain vistas that include Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu - four of the eight highest peaks on earth! The 360-degree view from Gokyo Ridge is the best in the Khumbu region.
