Gokyo Lake trek in Everest region probably takes you to the paradise from where you will enjoy the most fabulous Himalayan ranges of Mt. Everest (Khumbu) region. To experience the alluring Mountain View/ panorama and pristine Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri (5357m) is the finest destination of the trip. Despite nature and the Himalayas, the trail, local Sherpa people and amazing Buddhism influenced culture will be seasoning on the trip. An adventure expedition to Gokyo Lake starts with exciting Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. Then the trial follows toward Phakding, Namche bazaar (3500m), Dole (4200m) & Machhermo (4470m) to reach Gokyo valley (4700m).
Gokyo Lake, the destination of our trip is a famous lake in Sagarmatha National Park (Everest) and it is situated at Khumjung VDC. The lakes in the lap of the Everest Himalayas range are significant for both Hindu and Buddhist as Hindu people take holy bath during the “Janai Purnima festival”, which usually occurs in the month of August.
From Gokyo Ri it is possible to see the various Himalayas including five +8,000m peaks: Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchanjunga, and Cho Oyu, which will really make you feel the adventure for lifetime. After exploring a day in Gokyo Ri, we will be back to Lukla in 4 days through Dole, Namche Bazaar and Phakding village.
