Its an appealing trek and journey to the fantastic Gokyo valley, Gokyo lakes and Gokyo Ri lying in the Himalayan region and on the west side of the Ngozumpa glacier, the largest glacier of Nepal. The journey begins after we land to Lukla then Namche Bazaar crossing Dudh Koshi river valley.
To reach the Gokyo valley, we have to pass through the grazing settlement of Yak to reach Gokyo valley which is one of the most surprising viewpoint of Nepal where we can view Mt. Everest (8848m) worlds highest mountain peak, and the other Himalayas such as Mt Makalu (8463m), Cho- yo (8201m), Gokyo peak, Lhotse, etc. The valley is surrounded by alpine lakes and numerous glaciers. From Gokyo lake, we will head up to Gokyo Ri that provides awe-inspiring Mt. Everest views.
We explore the valleys where Sherpas are an inhabitant and encounter their lifestyle, unique culture, tradition and their lovely hospitality. We can view the panoramicview of the sunrise from Gokyo peak, the valley is a shelter for the yak. Its great if we visit there in the spring season as we can experience special flowers in spring.
