Everest Gokyo Lake Trek is an incredible trip with superb attractions. The trek is renowned as the alternative EBC trekking due to the remarkable natural sceneries, Lakes and glaciers and the hidden Sherpa valleys. Trek to the Gokyo valley is strenuous due to the altitude it gains and the route we follow. Trekkers should always feel that acclimatization is necessary for the Gokyo trek.

The Gokyo Lake Trek begins from the Lukla airstrip and head above the Dudh Koshi Valley. Some steel bridges should be crossed over the River and gorge before entering to the Sagarmatha National Park. It is a home of endangered flora and fauna. Reaching Namche Bazaar, you take a side trip to the Khumjung valley. Namche Bazaar is a market centre for the people of the Khumbu region. Khumjung valley represents the features of the Sherpa people that has monasteries and chhortens.   Walking to Phortse, you continually climb to the Gokyo valley passing the Longpongo Tso and Ramboche Tso. Gokyo valley is beautifully situated beside the Dodh Pokhari. You also hike to the Gokyo Ri, from where you can get the perfect views of Mt. Everest, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Gyachung, Lhotse, Nuptse and others along with the longest glacier of Nepal- the Ngozumba glacier. If it becomes possible, you can trek to the fifth and sixth lake as well.

Unforgettable people & experience

Unforgettable people & experience


As two young girls arriving in Nepal we were concerned about finding a trek company that could give us peace of mind along with the trek we wanted. Amrit the manager was amazing and totally accommodated our needs and understood that we were students so not wanting to spend a crazy amount. We did the Everest Region trek, and it was the best experience of my life. Our guide Prakash made the whole experience for us, not only was he very knowledgable and helpful, but a great person who really tailored our trek for us both. As two young girls they put our mind at rest about safety. Could not recommend them enough to anyone wanting a short to long or cheap to expensive track. They have it all, and will accommodate in the best way for all.
