GOKYO VALLEY TREK

Gokyo Valley trek is the perfect destination in the Everest region for those who detest crowds and expecting for jaw-dropping scenery.

Gokyo valley trek is the second most popular destination in Everest Region which offers an alternative to the traditional trek to Everest Base Camp. The view in the Gokyo region is incredible. The trekking trail follows the Everest base camp route till Sanasa, next to the tea house place from Kangjuma after leaving Namche Bazar. Then the trail continuously goes through the left side of the Dudh Koshi River to its source, a couple of lakes and Ngozumpa GlacierGokyo village (4750m) is a more satisfying destination than Gorak Shep, a proper Sherpa village with a huge herd of Yaks. Gokyo Ri (5360m) is sometimes also called Kala Pattar because it offers a breathtaking panoramic view of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and mesmerizing three sacred lakes (Dudh Pokhari, Tanjung Tso and Longpongma so).

Most of the trekkers want to include Gokyo Lake in their itineraries whether they are trekking to Everest base camp or doing Everest Three Passes because of its amazing scenery.

Key Features of Gokyo Valley Trek

  • Gokyo Ri features the panoramic view of Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse and Taboche, with the Ngozumpa Glacier.
  • The sacred lake of six languid pools that surround Gokyo.
  • You will see the herd of 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 renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

A staple food of Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, Tibetan bread it is known that Sherpas’ started farming potato when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s.

Simply fantastic. The views were awesome, decent teahouses with really good food made some fantastic friends & would use this same company again. The owner, Devilal Kandel was great & my guide, Ram Barakoti was the best guide anyone could ask for.

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.
