Gokyo Lake Trek

5 Based on 44 Reviews

The Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Ri Trek is a magnificent journey to the appealing Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri. The Gokyo Lake Trek is the greatest alternative to the traditional Everest Base Camp Trek.

It offers a breathtaking view of Everest and overnight accommodations in Namche Bazaar, widely known as the Khumbu region’s gateway.

The Gokyo Lake trail is not as busy as the Everest Base Camp trek trail but it rewards the trekkers with an insight into the local lifestyle, breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains, and Course the dazzling turquoise waters of Gokyo Lakes themselves.

Gokyo Lakes are a collection of six bodies of lakes that are located in the Gokyo Valley. These lakes are the world’s highest freshwater lake system. Due to this reason, they have been assigned as a Ramsar site and are sacred pilgrims to both Hindus and Buddhists.

Gokyo Lake Trek Overview

The Gokyo Lake Trek starts from Lukla town, after taking a short, but interesting flight from Kathmandu. We then follow the Dudh Koshi River towards Namche, passing through the cultural village and serene alpine woodland.

After Namche, we branch off from the main trail towards the sleepy villages of Phortse Thanga, Dole, and Machhermo. The high slope spurs to the north and south, partially shielding the Machhermo settlement from the wind.

From Machhermo the landscape dramatically changes, to broad pastures, narrow clefts, steeply climbing trails, streams to cross, and wastes. Then comes the third lake Dudh Pokhari, which reflects the white face of Cho-Oyu, the sixth-highest mountain in the world.

Ahead we can see our final destination Gokyo Lake trek. From the summit of Gokyo Ri, you can absorb the once-in-a-lifetime view of the Himalayas. It includes Mt.Everest (8,848 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Nuptse (7,855 m), Mt.Cho-Oyu (8,201 m).

Amadablam (6,812 m), Kangtega (6,782 m), Thamserku (6,623 m), Kwangde (6,011 m), Kusum Kanguru (6,373 m) can also be observed. Likewise, we may observe the Holy peak Khumbi-la (5,761 m), and the 5” highest Mt.Makalu (8,463 m).

From here you can also see the Largest Glacier in Nepal named Ngozumpa. Apart from this, you can also view the tremendous ice ridge between Cho-Oyu and Gyachung Kung (7,922 m). It is one of the most dramatic panoramic views of the Gokyo Lake Trek.

From the Gokyo Ri, the trek continues. It leads into beautiful alpine woodland, to Tengboche Monastery surrounded by mountain peaks, including, Mt.Everest and the majestic Mt.Amadablam. Finally, this memorable trek concludes back at the town of Lukla, with the flight back to Kathmandu.

The hotel is a 2-3 star hotel that may be adapted to meet the needs of the visitors. Furthermore, we can update and modify the itinerary which is a fundamental framework of a trek on demand.

Our porter, Gopi, was also very helpful especially in keeping our spirits up during the whole journey.
