The Gokyo Valley Trek offers one of the most varied treks in the Khumbu Region, a step back in time and back into back-country Nepal. After Kathmandu sightseeing we fly to Lukla, and within a few days we break away from the somewhat crowded standard Everest Base Camp trail. We slowly work our way towards the border of Tibet, to be stopped by a world of giant ice encrusted mountain walls and glaciers.

The aim for many is to trek to Gokyo Lake(s), while others wish to ascend Gokyo Ri, to experience the amazing views from its summit.  If you wish both we recommend you book an extra day.
