Trip Overview

The Gokyo trek is one of the popular trekking routes. Gokyo lakes & Gokyo Ri Trek is a beautiful journey to the amazing Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri. Gokyo Ri (5,357m) is one of the most wonderful viewpoints for great panoramic views of Mahalangur Himalayan Range. From Gokyo Ri, we can enjoy the view of four 8,000 meter peaks; Mount Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu and Mt. Cho Oyu. The route itself ends at Gokyo Ri so that trekkers typically turn around at this point and retrace their steps back. This trek passes through some of the spectacular Sherpa village including Namche upto Sanasa and follow Gokyo valley and Dudh Koshi river to Nyozunba glacier (the main source of the river).

Gokyo lakes are located in Khumbu region comprising of 19 lakes with six major lakes, Gokyo Lake is main lake of this region with an area of 42.9ha. The six major lakes are;Gokyo Cho, Thonak Cho, Gyazumpa Cho, Tanjung Cho, Longpanga Cho and Ngozumpa Cho as source of permanent fresh water. The Gokyo Lake system of 19 lakes is spread over an area of 196.2ha lying between 4,600m and 5,100m. The wetland lies on the head of the Dudh Koshi which descends from Cho Oyu. It is considerd sacred by Hindus and Buddhists people. On average 7,000 tourists annually visit the Gokyo Lakes. Hindus take a holy bath in the lakes during the Janai Purnima festival which occur in month of August. The belief that birds and wild life in the area should not be harmed has traditionally protected faunas.

Great Experience
Agnieszka KwaczyńskaPLOct 12 - Oct 24, 2019
When I had decided to go for a trekking in Himalayas I asked my friends about their experience. They recommended me Mission Nepal. That was a great choice! Mission Nepal organized for me and my friend dedicated hike. They were very professional, took care of us in the mountains and organized sightseeing in Kathmandu. They were very helpfull and perfectly organized when we experienced health problems in the mountains. I recommend Mission Nepal for everybody who expects individual programme, professional and experienced guides and hospitable people taking care of you.
