GOKYO VALLEY TREK

“The track less travelled & unrivalled beauty”

The Gokyo valley trek is another option for those heading to Everest Base Camp. Its popularity makes it the second most travelled route in the Everest Region leading to  Everest Base Camp. The Gokyo region will not disappoint those looking for unforgettable spectacular views. The trail follows the normal route to Everest Base Camp until reaching Sanasa, near Kangjuma, reached shortly after leaving Namche Bazar. The trail sticks to the left side of the Dudh Koshi River until it meets its source of several lakes and the famous Ngozumpa Glacier. Gokyo village (4750m) is one of the most authentic Sherpa villages with its huge herd of Yaks, compared to Gorak Shep,  Gokyo Ri (5360m) is often referred to as Kala Pattar – meaning “black rock” and offers awesome panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and a spellbinding view and  “dip”  in one of the three sacred lakes; Dudh Pokhari, Tanjung Tso and Longpongma.

The Gokyo Valley Trek is an alternative to the traditional Everest Base Camp trek while still providing the trekker with plenty of stunning views of Mount Everest as well as overnight stays in the iconic village of Namche Bazaar, the gateway to the Everest Region.
The trek to the Gokyo Lakes is less travelled but nevertheless allows you to glimpse the life of its locals, awe-inspiring views of glacial-fed fast-flowing rivers, glacier remnants, snow-capped peaks and the mesmerizing blues of Gokyo Lakes. 

The Gokyo Lakes are at an altitude of 4,700 to 5,000m high in the Gokyo Valley within the boundary of the Sagarmatha National Park.
Gokyo Lakes hold the title of being the highest freshwater group of lakes in the world, having historical importance referred to as a Ramsar (important wetlands) and is also deemed a holy site by Hindus and Buddhists. Just to remind you of how this area impressed Lonely Planet writers, who described the Gokyo Valley, “for our money the Gokyo Valley is the most spectacular in the Khumbu”.
Extending our stay for one more day in the Gokyo Valley allows time for us to visit the 5th and 6th lakes located in an alpine depression at the base of the world’s sixth-highest mountain - Cho Oyu. Today we will trek for around 5 hours and as we climb it gets steeper before reaching our destination Gokyo RI (5,357m) and some of the most amazing views of  Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, and Makalu. You will also get to see Ngozumpa, Nepal’s largest glacier and its nearby ice ridges. 

To assist you to become acclimatized at these higher altitudes and prior to climbing before setting off to Gokyo Ri and Gokyo Valley, we will spend time at Namche Bazaar. Trekkers can also choose to take a short trek to Khumjung Village and visit a school funded by Sir Edmund Hillary, who with Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, were the first climbers to reach the summit of (World's highest peak) Mt Everest.

Numerous expeditions and literally thousands of climbers have made Namche Bazaar a meeting point and place where climbers share their journeys to some of the world’s highest mountains.
Due to its spectacular scenery, the trek to Gokyo Lake is frequently added by trekkers to their itinerary to Everest base camp and Everest Three Passes.

Key Features of Gokyo Valley Trek

  • Gokyo Ri with it panoramic views of Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse and Taboche & Ngozumpa Glacier.
  • The 6 sacred lakes surrounding Gokyo.
  • Witness yak and mountain goat grazing over the hills and mountain. 

Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovations and high air traffic at Kathmandu's only international airport. This change in the airport will continue into 2020.as well. This should take effect from March 2020.

ITINERARY

Expand All
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking members will be there to meet you at the airport and will then take you to your hotel. Once at the hotel our A company representative will explain the trekking itinerary.
Once we have completed the our-trip meeting and breakfast we will head off for a day of sightseeing starting at 8.30 a.m. We provide a private vehicle and professional tour guide and will visit Boudhnath Stupa claiming to be one of the biggest Buddhist shrines in the world, where we witness Buddhist monks in prayer in the monasteries adjacent to the stupa. Leaving Boudhnath Stupa we visit Pashupatinath, the most famous Hindu temple in the country located on the banks of the sacred Bagmati River, where Hindu holy men (sadhus) meditate, pilgrims bathe and on occasions there funeral pyres burning on the ghats. Another highlight of today’s tour will be a visit to the famous Bhaktapur Durbar Square, hosting a collection of pagoda and shikhara – style temples strategically placed around a 55 window palace constructed of brick and timber. The main attractions at Bhaktapur Durbar Square are the Lion Gate, the Golden Gate, the Palace of 55 windows, several art galleries and the statue of King Bhupatindra Malla. What remains of the day is yours to choose, maybe some last-minute shopping or merely exploring the labyrinth of streets around Thamel. Overnight stay at the hotel. Breakfast included.
An early morning start will see us board our 35-minute flight to Lukla Airport - also known as Tenzing-Hillary Airport. It is an amazing mountain flight with views of some of the world’s highest peaks. After landing in Lukla, we will have breakfast and begin ou journey and trek for around 3 hours before reaching Phakding Village where we will spend the night in a guesthouse. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
Our trek begins as we take the trail that meanders along the banks of the Dudh Kosi River, ascending through Himalayan Pine and Deodar Cedar forests before reaching the well-known village of Namche Bazaar. This is the largest Sherpa village and is a famous trading village for Nepalese and Tibetan merchants who barter in salt, dried meat and textiles.. We spend the night in a guest house at Namche Bazaar. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
The purpose for staying at Namche Bazaar is to acclimatize. It is vitally important to acclimatize before climbing higher up the mountains and ensures you are physically prepared and less likely to be affected by altitude sickness. Medical advice suggests you move around and avoid being idle. You may wish to visit the villages of Khumjung and Khude which will also be a good place to stop for lunch. Khumjung boasts of having several good bakeries. A 5-hour trek to Everest View Hotel offers you mesmerizing views of several enormous mountains - including Everest. We then return to Namche where we spend the night at a guesthouse. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
After waking up to the fresh mountain air at Namche, we continue our trek to Dole (4190m). The trail is relatively easy, crossing several valleys and passing through rhododendron, juniper, and other large coniferous forests. Spring is the ideal time, as the rhododendron forests are in bloom and their lingering perfume permeates the air. You may also witness the Sherpa’s with their herds of Yak grazing the green slopes. Finally, we reach Dole and spend the night at a guesthouse. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
The trail from here on becomes increasingly difficult as we pass through dense forest and higher altitudes with fewer villages along the way, The trail continues to climb up along the side of the valley until it reaches Machhermo, a small and beautiful village in the Khumbu region. Sherpas believe that the region of Machhermo is the home for Yeti, a mythical snowman. Overnight stay at a guesthouse. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner included
Today we ascend 300 meters before reaching Gokyo Valley – our ultimate destination!. Gokyo is a relatively small village located at the base of Gokyo Peak. Nearby we can see Ngozumpa glacier, the Himalayas largest glacier in the Gokyo Valley. From Gokyo there are spectacular views of the enormous 8000 meter high peaks of Mount Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Lhotse. Tonight we stay at a guest house in Gokyo. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
A big day lays ahead as we trek to Gokyo Ri (Gokyo Peak). Gokyo Ri is located in the Khumbu region of Everest with an altitude of 5357 meters. Gokyo Ri is well known by trekkers for the jaw-dropping views of several enormous mountains in the Khumbu region, which of course includes Mount Everest. After sitting in awe and frantically clicking cameras we head back to Machhermo where we stay overnight at a guesthouse. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
Today we head back to the famous Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar. The trail from Machhermo is relatively easy and passes through a number of Sherpa villages and isolated settlements. Tonight we stay in a guesthouse at Namche Bazar. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
It is a long day trekking, but fortunately, most of it is downhill before reaching Lukla – our point of departure on our trek! The remainder of the allows for a well-deserved rest, and if you have the energy you can venture off and explore nearby places of interest. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included
An early morning flight to Kathmandu allows us on arriving to further explore or relax and reminisce and look back at our journey. Our guides will be available to help you with some shopping or sightseeing. Tonight there will be a farewell dinner. We will stay the night in Kathmandu. Breakfast included

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfort and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - until Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.

Physical fitness

EBC is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes and sizes who have completed the trek.The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 

Best season to travel

The Gokyo Valley Trek is usually done in autumn (Sept. to November) and spring (March to May)  when you are much more likely to get to have crystal clear views of the mountains and can also enjoy the lush vegetation in the lower regions of the trail - particularly during spring.

Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

Gokyo Lakes is beautiful scenery on the way up to the summit of Gokyo Ri. I can recommend Gokyo Resort as a Lodge there, attached bathroom available, very friendly staff, good food, attached bakery with excellent cake and Highly recommended Sherpa Expedition.

I was there Gokyo in December 2019 and had a beautiful view of the world's highest mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho-yu. Gokyo is quieter then Everest Base camp trek and doesn't have to worry about the accommodation either. I totally recommend who loves the bit of adventure.
