Everest Gokyo Lake Trekking

ebc-chola-pass-trekEverest Gokyo Lake trekking is beginning with the spectacular mountain flight to Lukla we are rewarded with amazing mountain views. We visit Namche Bazaar, Thami and Khumjung spending valuable time acclimatizing to the altitude amidst the Himalayan peaks of Thamserku, Ama Dablam and Kangteiga, to mention just a few.

We leave Khumjung and climb towards Gokyo Lake, passing numerous waterfalls along the way. Gokyo Ri rises above the northern shore of Dudh Pokari, which in the early morning mirrors the golden form of Cho Oyo and from its summit affords unparalleled views of the other Himalayan giants, Makalu, Everest, Gyachung Kang, which are particularly impressive at sunset. You can see Mt. Everest and Himalayan range better than Kala Pattar and Everest Base camp trek. Gokyo valley trekking trails have good Teahouse / lodges facilities management by local Sherpas families.
