Gokyo Ri Trek

Adventure may hurt you but monotony will kill you.

Gokyo Ri Trek takes you to the top of Gokyo mountain and Gokyo, one of the world’s highest altitude settlements consisting of a few stone houses. At the foot of the world’s highest mountain, Gokyo is an excellent place to view five of the world’s tallest mountains: Mt Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchenjunga, and Cho Oyu. Sometimes the views from some places in Gokyo and Gokyo Peak are better than that from Kalapathar. Therefore Gokyo Trek has emerged as an alternate to the classical Everest treks that typically feature Kalapathar as the central vantage point.

GOKYO RI

During your Gokyo Ri Trek, the other major attraction you will find in this area is the concentration of glacial lakes. Gokyo is on the west side of Khumbu glacier, locally known as Ngozumpa glacier. This is the biggest glacier in the Himalayas of Nepal. There are several glacial lakes formed by the melt of this glacier. The Gokyo lakes are filled with crystal clear water. From the lakes at the ground to the sky piercing peaks, the views are simply sublime. When you climb Gokyo Ri (5357m), you will have more adventure and fun, and more of the sublime views.

Gokyo Ri Trek is one of the less strenuous treks in the Everest region, starting with a flight to Lukla. From there the first day of trekking reaches you to Phakding and the second day to Namche, where you can visit the Sherpa museum to experience the Sherpa culture. After spending a day at Namche, we move on to Dole, then to Machhermo and finally to Gokyo. The return takes normally two days unlike the approach that takes three days. For the maximum of Himalayan sights and adventure experience, spend a day at Gokyo and try climbing Gokyo Peak. You can certainly have a heavenly feel from the top of this peak. This is why trekking in Nepal is one of the most sought after outdoor adventure activities.
