Gokyo Lake Trek



Have you ever imagined being close to a glacial lake high up in the Himalayas with the snowy peaks glittering in the background? If so, the Gokyo Lake Trek is perfect for you! This trip provides a unique opportunity to experience the magnificence of the Mt. Everest and its surroundings! One of the many spectacular things you will see in this trek is the Ngozumpa Glacier composed exclusively from ice which, with its length of 26 kilometers, is considered to be the largest in the Nepalese Himalayas!

This particular region of the Himalayas is often recognized for its spectacular vistas, featuring magnificent viewing opportunities for some of the most popular mountains in Nepal. Thanks to a relatively high altitude and favorable terrain, travelers will be able to gaze out over vast expanses of picturesque terrain. Trekkers can observe Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu, all of which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri (5483m), situated directly above Gokyo Lake.
