Gokyo Valley is considered a traditional trek, that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier – the largest in the Nepal Himalayas. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an altitude of 8000m such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. One of the most remarkable features is the view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2922m) located in Khumbu region.
After a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu, landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting among the mountain people also known as Sherpa’s we stay at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Everything is organized in conjunction with local Sherpa guides. Along the trek we will pass Buddhist monasteries with the views of Everest and other snow towering mountains getting closer by the day. We will have rest days in the villages of Namche bazaar, this will allow us to explore the region and to acclimatize, which is very important.
