Everest Gokyo Lake Trek Package
Everest Gokyo Lake Trek is one of the best alternatives to the most famous Everest Base Camp trek. The trek starts from Lukla that can be reaching after 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu following up the Dudh Koshi River towards Namche which is the gateway of Khumbu region. After reaching Namche after 2 days of trek from Lukla, we will leave the main route what goes Everest base camp and follow the route that takes us to village of Phortse Tenga and then to Gokyo Lake via other small villages called Dole and Machhermo. It is a 13 days well designed trekking itinerary with ample time for adjustment with opportunities to get pleasure from mountain panoramas. Climbing Gokyo Ri and the view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu and Lhotse and Makalu is the major highlight of this trek. Similarly, the dramatic panoramic view of the wonderful ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is another highlight of this trek.
This is a challenging trek but if you are able to walk 6 -7 hours a day with your small rucksack and with little bit of experience of trek, you can go for this trek. It is a tea house lodge trek. There are many small lodges, tea houses along the trekking route where we will stop for our meals and overnight stay during the trek.
The period of March to mid of May and beginning of September to end of November is the best time for this trek. We don’t recommend this trek for winter time since most of the lodges above the altitude may be closed because of the cold and similarly, the snow may make it difficult to trek higher than Tengboche.
