Trip Description

 Gokyo is a system of 19 high-altitude freshwater glacial lakes situated at an altitude from 4,700 meters to 5,000 meters. The largest of these is Lake Thonak with its pristine turquoise waters. In this program from Discovery Mountain Trek, you will explore the Gokyo region and see some of these primordial lakes. The lakes of Gokyo are in the vicinity of Gokyo Valley in the Solukhumbu district. The region of Khumbu is where you’ll be traveling for these pristine views, and also climb the Gokyo-Ri for a bird’s eye view of some of the lakes below.

These lakes situated below the majestic snowcapped mountains of Everest region will entice you deeply. Some of the prominent lakes are Gokyo, Gyazumpa, Ngozumpa, Thonak, and Tanjung among others. The blissful journey takes you in high-altitude trails of Everest – right through the busy trekking routes. Some peaks visible in this program are Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, Everest, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Pumori.

To reach Gokyo lake, you will traverse through gushing rivers, beautiful alpine forests, and smaller lakes along with views of majestic peaks of the Himalayas. If you happen to be here in the right season, you will see blooming rhododendron forests at lower altitudes. As you give a side to yaks and mules on the narrow trails, you cannot be more right about the experience. En route, you will pass the villages of Khumjung, Namche, and Kunde, and see a vibrant mountain culture that rightly belongs to Everest. The villages mostly belong to the Sherpa community. In stopovers do not be surprised if you are offered “Everest” Tea made of yak milk sprinkled with salt and yak butter.

The best time for a Gokyo Lake trek is the autumn and the second best time is in the spring. (September to November) or spring (March to May). You will need a good level of physical fitness along with a regular walking habit to visit Gokyo. A prior of experience of trekking in Nepal is not required, but it is definitely a plus. Visit Gokyo for a definitive experience of trekking in Everest region of Nepal.
