Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek

Overview

The Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri region is a great alternative to the famous Everest Base Camp trek presenting the magnificent views of Everest range including Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu; all of them listed in the eight highest peaks in the world. The popularity of the Gokyo region in the sense of trekking is burgeoning among the trekkers as it offers more exciting and breathtaking landscapes of Himalaya ranges, glaciers along with local cultures and monasteries at the expense of lesser physical and mental pressure. The Gokyo valley is less crowded and is different in many aspects compared to Khumbu valley, but due to its high altitude (above 5000 meters) few days of acclimatization is mandatory at Namche Bazaar.
