Package Overview


Gokyo Lake is the highest freshwater lake system in the world at an altitude of 4,700 – 5,000 m. On an average more than 7,000 tourists visit Gokyo Lake annually. Gokyo is among the most popular tourist destinations leading towards the Everest base camp and other areas.  Gokyo village at 4,790 metres (15,720 ft) elevation is a major centre in the area. The site is two days walk uphill from Namche Bazaar and visit to the area often includes climbing Gokyo Ri.

The Gokyo Lakes are also part of an extended Everest Base Camp trek - 14 Days known as the EBC trek via Gokyo Lakes. This trek is commonly hiked by people with slightly more time to trek as the trail is 4 days longer than the standard EBC trek. The Gokyo Lakes trek also has the added benefit of being a circular route as opposed to the standard EBC trek which returns along the same trail. Gokyo Lake offers a mesmerizing view of the Himalayas. This trek also takes you closer to the Sherpa culture with diverse flora and fauna.  This trail is perfect to capture the scenic views of Mt. Everest itself, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Makalu, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Thamserku and many other lofty mountains.

This trek starts after the thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu landing on Lukla Airport then hike to the gate-way of Everest, Namche Bazar (3440m). Namche Bazzar is the main centre of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has modern facilities. From Namche Bazaar, we walk to Dole village and Machhemro.  Another day, we trek down to beautiful mountain lake Gokyo. We spend the next few days trekking and interacting with Sherpas. We stay at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages. Other days we head to Everest Base Camp via Gorakshep, the flat field below Kala Patthar, 5,545 metres (18,192 ft) and Mt. Pumori.  Alternatively, the comeback route can be arranged through the Chola Pass and Thame trail offers the pleasure adventurous psyche with more marvelous view of lofty High Himalayans exploring the Nepalese culture and tradition of Khumbu Region. Walk Mountain will always be by your side during your entire trek. If you are in need of a shorter trek, you can go for Everest View Trek - 8 days which requires less time and lesser physical strength with no compromise to the scenes you can experience.
