Gokyo Valley Trek, Everest – 13 DAYS

Overview

Gokyo Lake and Yaks
Gokyo Lake and Yaks

Gokyo valley Trek, Everest lies towards the west of the Khumbu region. In this serene valley, there are abundant pastures for yaks to graze during summer and the pristine turquoise lakes are breathtaking. Gokyo can be visited after trekking up to Everest Base Camp by adding another five days to the itinerary.

From Gokyo, the eight-thousander Cho Oyu (8,153m) is seen towards the north. There are many great views around the valley. The most popular of them is seen by ascending a ridge for 2-3 hours to the north-west to reach a small summit. From here the view is a stupendous panorama extending from Cho Oyu and Everest to Lhotse, and all the way to Makalu. This view is arguably better than the one above Gorak Shep.
