Trip Info

Similar to other treks to Everest Region, the trek to Gokyo Lake also begins with an exciting and scenic flight to Lukla, where the real trek starts. We gradually ascend to Namche Bazaar, the capital of Sherpas, and the gateway to Everest, where we are greeted by amazing mountain vistas. We spend an additional day in Namche Bazar acclimatizing. And following days we will pass through Dole and Machhermo where the mountain views become more spectacular. Passing through these Sherpa villages we also get a chance to have a glimpse at the lifestyles of high-altitude dwellers. During the trek, we enjoy the breathtaking beauties of Lake, snow-capped mountains, and Ngozumba Glacier, the largest of its kind in the Himalayas. The small settlement of Gokyo lies sandwiched between the third lake in the chain of small turquoise mountain lakes and Ngozumba glacier.

With its fascinating side valleys, an array of turquoise lakes, Nepal’s biggest glacier, and an arc of snow-capped mountains, trekking to the Gokyo Lakes is perhaps the most beautiful and extravagant in the Everest region. The Gokyo trek is considered an unconventional route to the traditional Everest Base Camp and offers splendid views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa- the largest glacier in the whole Himalayas.

Your adventure awaits!
