Gokyo Lake Trek

Gokyo Lake is situated in the famous Khumbu Region at an altitude of 4700-5000m with a fantastic view in its surrounding. Gokyo Lake has been the most popular side trips or alternative trek for those going to Everest Base Camp. Gokyo Lake Trek is specially designed for those trekkers who want to add up some more adventure and toughness in the trip. The trek starts with flight to Lukla passing through villages of Phakding, Namche and from Sanasa the trial heads towards its source Ngozumpa Glacier.

Gokyo Lake Trek ends ups in Gokyo village(4780m) and most important day of this trek is the hike you to the Gokyo Ri commonly known as Scoundrel’s Viewpoint where the trekkers are greeted with the magnificent views of Cho-Oyu, Gyachung Kaang, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. Gokyo Lake trek is truly phenomenal trek as it takes trekkers to the most amazing glaciers that exist in the whole globe. Ngozumpa Glacier is the largest of its kind in Himalayan Region. The trekkers will go through a very unique cultural exchange with the high altitude Sherpa people who present their own lifestyle and culture. During the trek trekkers will be staying at tea house lodge with best possible facilities available. To avoid the high altitude sickness we will be having proper acclimatization in the designated spots that will help trekkers to explore more.
