Gokyo Trek

This superb trek along less trodden trails provides an excellent alternative to the popular Everest Base Camp trek.
We enjoy the warm Sherpa hospitality s we ascend the trails alongside the Dudh Khosi river valley through rhododendron and conifer forest to the yak herder settlement of Gokyo. We ascend Gokyo Ri (5360m) from which we enjoy the magnificent view of four of the world's highest peaks over 8000m Cho Oyu, Makalu, Lhotse and the incredible Mount Everest, a truly memorable experience.

The magnificent Ngozumpa glacier, the longest in Nepal and the sparkling turquoise glacial lakes set among glistening snow-capped peaks make this a very special trek. exploring the famous Thyangboche monastery and the traditional Sherpa village of Khumjung where we can see the school and hospital built by Sir Edmund Hilary, we take the exciting Himalayan flight from Lukla back to Kathmandu affording spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.
