Gokyo Valley Trek covers one of the most beautiful places that lie to the west of the Khumbu area of the Everest region. It enriches with crystal –clear Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri ( Peak ) for climbing and pastures for yaks to graze during summertime. From Gokyo valley, one can also enjoy the 360-degree view of beautiful mountains. That includes Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu – four of them are the world’s eight-thousander peaks.

One can ascend a small ridge Gokyo Ri and summit in 2-3 hours and enjoy a panoramic view of the Himalayas. Gokyo Ri ( Peak ) is a huge black mound of rock and dirt. No need to have a climbing permit from Nepal Mountaineering Association for this peak neither climbing experience. The view from the top of Gokyo Ri (Peak is arguably better than the one above Gorak Shep).

We explore Gokyo valley before and after while trekking up to Everest Base Camp by adding another five or six days to the itinerary. The trail leads past rhododendron and oak forests and waterfalls which often freeze in winter. A couple of hours’ trekking on this beautiful trail we reach Dole where we spend the night in a teahouse. While returning from the Gokyo valley, we walk through Machhermo and Namche Bazaar and our trek ends at Lukla. From Lukla, we catch a flight to Kathmandu.

Gokyo Valley Trekking is the best choice for those who want to explore the lifestyle of the Himalayan people, their religion, customs and traditions of the Everest Region. The real beauty of the Everest region lies in its exquisiteness to attract trekkers once they come to explore this remote land. Exciting Himalaya offers Gokyo Valley trek for both group and private departures. For more details, please email us at excitinghimalaya@gmail.com

  2. Gokyo Valley trek with EXCITING HIMALAYA
    Shiva Raj1st May, 2019

    Gokyo Valley trek with EXCITING HIMALAYA After reviewing many websites got into Hostel Himalaya for which is one of the top rated hostes in Kathmandu which is 10 minutes walk from thamel, the place is clean, comfortable, friendly staff, quiet and at a reasonable price for a room or a bed and sight seeing and trekking as well. After inquiring for few treks I got to know that Gokyo Valley trek is one of the most beautiful and adventurous treks. I booked a trek to Gokyo Valley with exciting himalaya which is also organised by the same company. I booked it for $1250 which was most reasonable amongst other trek organizing teams. $1250 includes two-way airfare, breakfast, lunch dinner, guide charges and porter charges. Our team of trekkers flew from Kathmandu to lukla which is the starting point of the Gokyo trek guide name Ram gave us a detailed idea about the points which we will be visiting, he was a certified with Nepal tourism board, he was well aware of the place and is a fun loving guy. Coming to the sight seeing the view is breath taking from Valleys, Mountains, Lakes, Glaciers, and some wild lifes especially the massive Yaks. I was also impressed with the hospitality of Sherpa culture people who based in Gokyo Valley. After reaching the Gokyo-Ri which is the Last point of Gokyo Valley trek the view was simply awesome a complete 360° view of the Himalayan snow capped mountain can be seen Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Everest, Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Choyu, Gokyo Lake and Choyu Glaciar. The 11 days trek made me forget everything and was a life changing moment of my life I will never forget this trek ever especially the Sunrising behind the Mt. Everest which is the most mesmerizing moment. I would recommend this trek to each and everyone visiting Nepal for trekking and if possible try to book the trek with Exciting Himalaya as I find the organisers very helpful, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Thank you Exciting Himalaya, trek guide Ram and the porter Lakpa, and the Sherpa culture people and Nabaraj owner of Hostel Himalaya for the unforgettable trek and stay. I will visit again to Hostel Himalaya Thank you
