Gokyo Lake Trek

Gokyo Lake Trek is one of the adventure treks in Khumbu Himalaya of Nepal which is known to be the home for the highest hill of the world Gokyo Ri and several Himalayan and lakes known as Gokyo Lakes. The trek is beyond the largest glacier Himalayan kingdom, in the alpine valley of six lovely lakes where there is a small peak known far and wide as the Gokyo Ri (5,357 m). The path to Gokyo Ri is indeed one of the finest trails, lined up initially with rhododendron and birch forests also watch out for lichens. In addition, you will be able to see exotic wildlife like the musk deer, Himalayan Thar or the lovely pheasant. Gokyo Ri trekking is favored more than the traditional as it is a delightful trek.

From the summit of Gokyo Ri, you can catch the most exquisite panorama of the snow giants; especially Mt.Everest (8848 m), Cho Oyu (8188 m), Lhotse (8414 m), Makalu (8463 m), Nuptse and Thamserku. These glorious mountains are standing gracefully behind the shimmering turquoise water surface of the Sacred Lakes. Although locals have named it the “Valley of Death” owing to the numerous lives that altitude sickness has taken; Gokyo lake is like a piece of paradise on Earth (Nepal, to be more specific).  We won’t be hiking to the base camp since standing on the Gokyo Ri itself will make you feel like you are already on the roof of the world!

In brief, the trek is a pleasant trail with lots of photographic opportunities, not to mention a chance to visit the six sacred lakes of Gokyo valley and get closer to witness the typical lifestyle and unique cultures of an average mountain dweller.
