Gokyo Valley Trek

  • Overview
  • Itinerary

We start Gokyo Valley Trek from Lukla. Gokyo Valley Trek is a fantastic trek, visiting all of the high valleys of the Khumbu with extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley. Our camp at Gorakshep provides the opportunity to ascend to kalapathar 5,545m for more spectacular views of the surrounding mountains, including the black rocky ramparts of Everest''s southwest face.

Trekking around Gokyo valley is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in Nepal''s Himalayas. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an altitude of 8000m such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake.
