Gokyo Valley Trek

  • Duration: 15 days
  • Price: USD 1575
  • Trip Code: MHE02

It’s not altitude it’s an attitude that matters. Nepal’s Himalayas are not only beautiful but fabled too. Gokyo Valley trek takes you via the mythological trail towards the serene Lake Valley of the Khumbu region. The five ( fifth) high altitude lakes blessed by the Choyou Mountain and courted by Nogzumpa glacier would raise the benchmark of all adventure trekking activities across the globe. Get repose from the monotonous chores of your daily life and head for this mystical Himalayan escapade. The pristine rhododendron forests, picturesque waterfalls, spectacular view of Choyou, Tabuche, Cholatse and Amadablam along with the sound of the bells encircled around Himalayan caravan would lift your spirit. Probably the best view of the Everest can be seen from this trip location.

Fortnight of the wilderness adventure starts from the World’s Extreme airport in Lukla. The temperate forests trail passing by the village of tea houses and Sherpa people reaches the Sherpa Capital Namche Bazaar. We spend two nights on this beautiful colorful Himalayan town for the acclimatization purpose. The hiking of the Everest View Hotel serves you the best of the scenery of Himalayas and entire Khumbu Valley. The journey of Gokyo Valley Trek separates from the usual Everest Base Camp Trek crossing the Mongla Hill. The forests of rhododendron and waterfalls along with the scenery of mountains accompany you to the 3rd Gokyo Lake bank for the accommodation. The view of the turquoise lake and Mountains like Everest, Choyou, Lhotse, Makalu etc. from Gokyo Ri is outstanding. The sunset view is highly recommended. The 5th Lake visit is the highlight of our itinerary. The glimpse of the water gathered right from Choyou on to the lake would revitalize any soul. Return back to Lukla for flight to Kathmandu can be opted via two trails. One would be the same that you took for ascent while other is via Renjola Pass. Our experienced clients oriented trekking guides will fulfill your wishes.

Feel the tranquility and enhance the spirituality during Gokyo Valley Trek. Unlimited Mani, Chortens and Gompas on the trail along with the mystical Himalayas worth every penny spent for the trip. Over decades of experience in the Nepal Trekking field ensures the trekkers’ safety and worthwhile investment on travel.
