Gokyo Valley Trekking

Gokyo TrekkingThe settlement of Gokyo (4750m) lies on the banks of the third lake in a series of small turquoise mountain lakes and on the ridge above Gokyo, a hike to the high vantage point of Gokyo Ri (Trek to Gokyo Peak) (5350m) will reward you with views of the four above 8000m peaks of Cho You, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu expose themselves. In addition to this you can have a look at the tremendous ice ridge between Cho You and Gyachung (7922m), considered one of the most dramatic panoramas in the Khumbu region. There are many options for additional exploration and high-altitude walking, including the crossing of Cho La, a 5420m-high pass into Khumbu and a hike to Gokyo Ri. Your return trek will depart from the standard Gokyo trek and if you wish to take yourself through another route back to Namche by crossing the Renjo La pass (5340m) instead of back trekking the Gokyo valley trails. This makes the trek a much more exciting and challenging one or heading to Everest Base Camp trek just crossing Cho La pass also would be another achievement with your Gokyo Valley Trek.
