Everest Gokyo Trekking: 18 Days
This trek features the unbelievable scenery of the remote Gokyo Valley, moonscape-like glaciers, and stunning mountain views that include Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.The 360-degree view from Gokyo Ridge is the best in the Khumbu!
The beginning of this trek is the same as hiking to Everest Base Camp. After visiting Namche, we’ll head up the valley leaving the usual Everest trail and following the rivers run off from the Ngozumpa glacier. Your arrival into this high mountain valley called Gokyo is welcomed by a string of cobalt blue lakes. From Gokyo RI you’ll see much more than Mount Everest — there are magnificent views of many of the other 8000-meter peaks from here as well.
