The Gokyo Lake Trek is to be considered as an alternative trek to the traditional Everest Base Camp trek that offers magnificent view of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in the Nepal Himalayas.

In this trek, we can get opportunity to have an excellent and eye catching view of Mt. Everest from the close range. Furthermore, Cho Oyu, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri (5483m.) above Gokyo Lake.

One of the most remarkable features of the trek is the view of tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung located in Khumbu Region [Everest Region]. This extraordinary trek is also worthy in a sense that it offers an ample opportunity to explore the amazing destination and its impressive sight, which is beyond human imagination.
