A Himalayan High Experience
About The Everest Gokyo Circuit Trek

The Trek to the Everest Base Camp combined with Gokyo Lakes are a way to completely live the rich experience of trekking in the Everest region. While trekking to the Everest Base Camp is beautiful and enchanting experience and is popular too, the trek to the much silent, calmer and even more beautiful Gokyo Lakes completes your experience of wandering in these regions of Nepal.

The trek to Everest Base Camp takes you closer to the mountain, but completing it with a trek to the Gokyo Lakes adds to your experience of witnessing the 'mountain of glory' from the other side as well. Rather, the views of Mt. Everest from Gokyo Ri Summit and Beyond Gokyo 5th lakes are one of the most complete, full-up, unbelievable, and breathtaking. The trek to reach the Gokyo Lakes itself is a thrilling and challenging one involving negotiating the high pass of Cho La and the crossing the vast Ngozumpa Glacier, which is considered to be the longest glacier in The Nepal Himalayas.

The pristine lakes of Gokyo are just something to fall in love with straight away. Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, stands right in front of all the six lakes of the Gokyo region. Brahminy ducks in the first lake remain there even in winters.. The sounds of Himalayan snow cock will tease your ears. The region has 6 visible lakes.. otherwise, gokyo lakes are 19 interconnected lakes.Ngozumba glacier - the longest glacier of the Nepal Himalayas ( 36 kilometers ) blows your mind off with its vast and rough terrain. Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Nirekha and other peaks stands tall on the other side of the glacier, luring your imaginations. Strong wind blows often in the region. Here the views are surreal !!

The Everest Gokyo Circuit Trek offers stunning views of Mount Everest from all round, firstly from the Khumbhu Region and the from the Ngozumpa valley.  On this trek, you do not just view the classic mountain from a distance, but you trek to its base camp from where, lots of mountaineers from different parts of the World, take their steps on to the mountain, to reach its summit. Walking the trails through Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche and Gorakshep and then to Everest Base Camp, this is for sure a trek you must do to gift yourself an experience for a lifetime !!

Further, to add to your experience, you trek to Dzongla, from where you will tackle the mighty Chola pass to take yourself to the surreal valley of Gokyo. The mere sight of the Vast Ngozumpa glacier will blow off your mind !! 

On this trek we also summit the famous and strategic Kalapatthar and Gokyo Ri. The truth is, Mt. Everest is not clearly viewed from the Everest Base Camp and is blocked. So a climb to Kalapatthar is much desired which offers grands views all round. The views from the top of Kalapatthar and Gokyo Ri can't just be spoken in few words. From here, you get to witness the grand vista of the tallest mountains in the world. At 5554 meters, this is also the highest point of the trek. Views of Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse during sunrise or sunset will be to your soul's contentment.

Apart from the stunning mountains, trekking in the Kumbhu region is also about lots of other elements and experiences. To mention few, its the Sherpa way of life, their hardship and happiness, The Buddhism pf Peace and enlightenment, the beautiful rhododendrons, local cuisines, and lots more...

After a strenuous climb for some hours, we reach Kala Patthar. We scramble few rough patches and reach the summit set apart by cairns and prayer flags. As we are on the top, we enjoy some of the most unimaginable Himalayan Panorama, meandering relentlessly between one massif and then onto the next.

Our reviews are a result of our hardwork and intention to serve with the best intentions.

When Should You Book?
