Gokyo Lake

Trip Overview

The Gokyo Lakes trek is one the most picturesque and less trodden trek in Everest region – the best alternative of classic Everest Base Camp. The trek exhibits the solitary valleys, pristine turquoise lakes, stunning glacier and parade of snowy peaks together. We have designed this Gokyo trekking itinerary with the hike to the Gokyo and Bhote Koshi Valley, crossing the most spectacular Renjo La Pass, making a circuit trek, rather than to retrace the same way as most of the other Gokyo Valley trekking programs.
In our Gokyo Lakes trek, we explore and enjoy the Sherpa hospitality and ascend through the rhododendron and conifer forest to the yak herders’ settlements of sacred lakes in Gokyo Valley. A trekkers’ paradise valley of vibrant turquoise lakes which are set among like jewels midst the highest snowy peaks. The exploration hike to the Gokyo Ri (5,425m) and the cross over the stunning Renjo La Pass, probably the best vantage point in entire Everest region. This pass offers the majestic views of Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Everest – four of the eight highest mountains on earth and many more hovering in horizon, with a contrast to blue lakes below. A traverse onto the Renjo La to the dramatic solitary Bhote Koshi Valley puts you on the historical trade route between Nepal and Tibet. Expect to encounter the native Tibetan traders on this section. An exploration of Thame unveils unspoiled Himalayan vistas at its best, before descending to Lukla to end the adventure journey to Gokyo Lakes and Renjo La Pass in Everest.
