Gokyo Valley Trekking route is a traditional trekking trail in the Everest region that blends natural beauty, adventure, and diversity. Bask in the magnificent view of Everest and scores of other big and small Himalayas. Lay eyes on the largest glacier in the Nepalese Himalayas. Surround yourself with a variety of flora and fauna. Be a part of the unique culture of the region. Take the Gokyo Valley Trekking route to explore a different side of the Himalayas not seen from the Everest Base Camp. Gokyo boasts magnificent turquoise lakes. The surrounding glacier forms the source of mighty and torrential Sapta Koshi River, the biggest river in Nepal. This river holds cultural and historical significance.

Gokyo Valley Trekking route takes you to the less popular, yet more beautiful, part of the Everest region. The journey begins with the exploration of the ancient, cultural and historical heritage of Kathmandu valley. Learn about Newari culture, tradition, and lifestyle that has been in existence for ages. After that, take an exhilarating 35-minute flight to the beautiful Lukla Airport. The trail follows the mighty Dudh Koshi River. You will enjoy the view of Mount Everest, Ama Dablam and other peaks that overlook our trekking trail. We trek through several villages enjoying the ecological diversity of Sagarmatha National Park. Then we hike up to reach the buzzing city of Namche Bazaar.

Afterward, we take on the less traveled path as we wander through the trail to the settlements of Dole and Machhermo. After another day of trekking, the beautiful Gokyo valley welcomes us. After exploring Gokyo village, one of the highest settlements in the world, we ascend Gokyo Peak. Atop the ridge, there is a stunning view of the Ngozumba glacier.  From here, you can enjoy panoramic views from Gokyo Peak.

The view from Gokyo Peak has to be seen to be believed. The Ngozumpa glacier provides a picture-perfect backdrop for this stunning panorama. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8511m), Cho Oyu (8153m) and Makalu (8463m) are the five highest mountains to see from here. The view from this peak is more beautiful than the iconic and more popular Kala Patthar in the Everest region. The return journey from Gokyo valley is a leisurely trek to Namche and Lukla, then we return to Kathmandu. Intermittently, we also trek past Buddhist monasteries and prayer wheels, suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags and other cultural symbols.

Gokyo Valley Trekking route provides the perfect setting for trekking. It has everything your heart desires. On this moderate trekking route, Trekking Planner gives proper guidance, acclimatization, carefully planned itineraries, professional guides. You will be well taken care of with Trekking Planner Nepal. September to December and March to May serves as the best season for this trek. We make sure that you get the best out of the trekking experience in the region and provide the utmost comfort and safety.

Trek to Gokyo lakes

Thank you Dipak and Kilnath for the great trip to Nepal! Everything has been very well planned and our trip therefore went without any problem whatsoever. It was nice to simply be able to enjoy the beautiful mountain scenery. I would not hesitate to recommend Trekking Planner for the preparation of a trek to this beautiful country and will definitevely retain the services of this company upon my return to Nepal (hopefully in upper mustang!). Thanks again! Visited April 2017
