Gokyo Vally Trek

Gokyo Valley Trekking: Powered by nature…naturally...

You don’t have to travel to expensive corners in the world to see nature at its most natural. Nepal is a cheaper option, the origin of true beauty is right here, in God’s own country. The pristine air, spectacular scenery & the less crowded spaces of the Himalayas are closer than you think. Our crystal clear green valleys & magnificent mountains 

Nepalese experts…we simply love what we do…

And one of them is taking you on a special trek to the Gokyo valley; one of the most frequently organized trekking routes in the Everest. Backpackers just love to visit this area, as there are awesome views of the scenic mountains lying from north to south in the Everest region and the beautiful turquoise mountain lakes are the primary attraction of the area. You have two options to go to the Gokyo valley & its Lakes, either by bus or plane. If you want to hop a plane, you fly from Kathmandu to Hillary’s Lukla by the mountain airstrip, nearly 30 minutes and then you trek to up to the area. Another option is to go by road. In case you want to make it by road, you travel by bus from Kathmandu to Jiri and begin your trekking journey to the Everest route via Lukla, please view our detail itinerary of the Jiri Trek for Detailed information. The trip begins with a three hours walk from the airport as we reach the first stop at Phakding and we continue our hike to the north up to the Dudh Kosi valley and into the bustling Everest regional capital of Namche Bazaar.
