Gokyo Valley Trek – 15 Days !

The Gokyo Valley Trek whilst not as popular as the famous Everest Base camp trek offers superb mountain views, beautiful landscapes, alpine scenery & amazing glacial Lakes. The Gokyo Valley Trek follows the same route to EBC until about halfway along & then leads you to the Pristine Gokyo valley on the left from Kanzjima. Your ultimate destination of this trek is Gokyo Ri (5350 m) which is also considered an amazing viewpoint like Kalapatter, to observe the whole range of the Everest region including several Lakes & Mt. Everest.

Gokyo Valley Trek !

Gokyo valley offers not just the Mountain scenery but is equally famous for high altitude glacial lakes. You will have a great opportunity to explore great blue Lakes & of course the stunning mountains of the Himalayas. Upon return, you can track back the same trail or alternatively, take another route by crossing Renjo La pass to avoid same route to descend Thame Village then to Lukla. Choosing Renjo La pass on return, this would be one of the best Trek of the Everest region.
