Gokyo Lake trek - Nepal

Gokyo Lake

With eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountain vistas. The Everest area is justifiably famous, not only for its proximity to the world's highest mountain but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colorful festivals and monasteries. The Sagarmatha National Park is rich with flora and fauna, but the existence of the yeti remains a mystery. You will trek to the beautiful village of Gokyo 4000mtrs and Gokyo Ri 5360mtrs, you will view some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and of course "The Top of the World Mt Everest." Our first acclimatization days are spent at Namche Bazaar, home of the legendary Sherpa people. This colorful village was once the main trading route between Tibet and Nepal and offers a unique insight into the traditional Nepali and Tibetan way of life.

On this 14-day trek you will visit the famous Buddhist Monastery at Tyanboche which has been restored after being destroyed by fire in 1989. Tyangboche is surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountainous scenery in the world and majestically towering above is Ama Dablam. Here your efforts will be truly rewarded as your experienced and knowledgeable guide points out the classic routes to the summit of Mount Everest. You will visit the famous school that was built and funded by Sir Edmund Hillary. As you ascend higher to our destination of Gokyo you pass a series of 3 high altitude blue lakes which will take your breath away with their beauty. On our descent you return to your final destination of Lukla for the traditional end of trek party and a spectacular return flight to Kathmandu.

This trip is truly an adventure to remember.
