Gokyo Ri Trek

Gokyo Ri Trek starts from Lukla a short flight from Kathmandu. Gokyo Ri Trek follows up the Dudh Koshi river towards Namche, Phortse, Machhermo and Khumjung. After Khumjung Valley we branch off from the main busy trail towards the sleepy village of Phortse and finally reaching to our ultimate destination at Gokyo. Gokyo is blessed with beautiful high lake. The mountains are more spectacular, the Ngozumpa Glacier is the largest in the Nepal Himalaya and from a ridge above Gokyo, and for 8000m peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu) are visible at once. The view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is one of the most dramatic panoramas. There are many options for additional exploration and high-altitude walking, including the crossing of Cho La, a 5420m high pass into Khumbu however we will not cross this pass in this trek. We will come back to Lukla almost a same route.
