Gokyo Valley Trek is a fascinating trekking route of Khumbu region offering you the stunning mountain views of worlds highest peak i.e. Mt Everest, largest glacier in the Nepal Himalayas i.e. Ngozumpa Glacier and Gokyo Lake. The scenic natural beauty of Gokyo region is beyond your imagination as the view of this region is associated with soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an elevation of above 8,000 meters such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. The Gokyo Lake Trek and Gokyo Ri Trek is an alternative to classical treks in the Everest region.The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and Rhododendron forests where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen. One of the most remarkable features of the Gokyo Valley Trek is the view of tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung located in Khumbu region.
Trekking to Gokyo Valley embarks from Lukla after a short and picturesque flight from Kathmandu. The trail enters the main Everest Base Camp trail and passes numerous sherpa settlements to reach Namche Bazzar where we rest for a day to acclimatize which helps you to be familiar with mountain conditions. The trek steeply descends passing through Phortse Tenga , from where the trail climbs steeply to Dole, through Rhododendron forests festooned with hanging mosses and Lichens. From Dole we ascend steadily along the side of the valley in the direction of Machhermo, where small and thorny bushes give way to scrub juniper as the altitude increases. We follow a very scenic path to Pangka from where we descend gradually following a river from where we again climb uphill to a rocky incline and into the valley walking aside the glacier to reach Gokyo. From Gokyo we hike upto the Gokyo Ri - the last point of our trek from where we witnees the remarkable panoramic view of Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Ama Dablam and many other peaks. The journey descends down to Phortse as the path changes from Pangka and crosses the beautiful villages of Chhum, Thore, Gyenhyo and Konar. From Phortse we descend down to Namche Bazzar and hike to Lukla from where we fly back to Kathmandu.
