Gokyo Lake Trekking

Gokyo Lake TrekkingThe Gokyo Lake trek starts from Lukla after 45 minute mountain flight from Kathmandu, following up the Dudh Koshi river valley towards Namche, and other main villages of Khumbu, Thame & Khumjung. After Khumjung Valley we branch off from the main busy trail towards the sleepy village of Phortse Tenga and finally reaching to our ultimate destination at Gokyo. Gokyo, a one time yak pasture is blessed with two beautiful high lakes. The mountains are more spectacular, the Ngozumpa Glacier is the largest in the Nepal Himalaya and from a ridge above Gokyo, and for 8000m peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu) are visible at once. The view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is one of the most dramatic panoramas in Khumbu. There are many options for additional exploration and high-altitude walking, including the crossing of Cho La, a 5420m-high pass into Khumbu however we will not cross this pass in this trek. We will come back to Lukla almost a same Trail.
