Gokyo Lake Trek

12 Days

$ 1120.00

A remarkable alternative to the Everest Base Camp is the Gokyo Lake which provides perfect views of four of the highest mountains in the world – Mount Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m) and Cho Oyu (8153m). Experience the scenic beauty of Gokyo Lake draped in a Himalayan backdrop. The highlight of this trek is the challenging ascent of Gokyo Ri (5,357m) which rewards climbers with panoramic views of many peaks and a sight which encapsulates Ngozumpa – Nepal’s largest glacier. This trek reaches high altitudes quite quickly so it is important to take the suggested acclimatisation days and to be aware of signs of altitude sickness. For more information, please refer to the health and safety section. It is possible to combine this trek with the Everest Base Camp trek
