“Five distinct lakes with their trademark bluish color and the 5537-meters peak, all in the Gokyo package”
Gokyo Lake Trek is the major destination for those who want to experience the bluish and sometimes, frozen lake with the added attraction of the great viewpoints. A great hike in the Everest Region without the physically tiring walks.
As the country is rich in diverse geographical locations, we will have to climb up and down the ridges before arriving at the Gokyo Lakes. The last part of the climb will be a bit harder than the other trek days as we will have to climb up the sandy and rocky path to reach the top of the Gokyo RI. The trek to the Gokyo Lakes starts with a flight to the dangerous airport of Nepal, the Tenzing and Hilary Airport. After arriving at Lukla, we will cover the same trip as the EBC trekkers to the Namche Bazaar until the 3rd day and after that, you will have a totally different experience. Explore the Sherpa culture, tradition, values, norms and the lifestyle influenced by the Tibetan people. Also, have a view of the 4 eight-thousanders, Everest, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and the Lhotse from the Scoundrel’s Viewpoint. We will also have a chance to see the largest glacial body of Nepal, the Ngozumpa Glacier.
Join hand with us in this 12-days expedition to climb the Gokyo RI peak and explore all of the five lakes of the Gokyo Village. A fairly fit person can complete this trek but, it is important for a trekker to be able to walk at least 4 hours a day. Contact us in case of professional expertise and a tailored trip.
