One of the most spectacular treks in the Everest region is the trek to the Gokyo Valley. After the flight from Kathmandu reaches Lukla, the Gokyo valley trek commences from Dudh Koshi river valley to Namche Bazaar through Phakding. The trek separates at Kyangjuma and resumes towards high mountains along the Gokyo Valley.
The Gokyo region is also famous for its lakes, Gokyo itself being one of the most important and famous amongst the five. Our name 5th Lake has also been derived from the Fifth lake of the region.
The trek not only serves a breathtaking palate of lakes but also the panoramic view of the whole Everst Region covering obviously the Everest, Ama Dablam,Lhotse, Pumori and Thamsekru. The view from the top of Gokyo ri makes all the trouble look like it had been nothing. It all seems more than justifying.
