Everest Gokyo Lakes Trek

Posted by Hari Shrestha on December 23rd, 2016

The Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek, otherwise called Cho La Pass Trek, or Everest circuit trek, is a standout amongst the most bold and testing treks in the Everest Himalayas. The trek takes after the Base Camp course, going through the dynamic town of Namche Bazaar and the fabulous site of Tyangboche where a superb religious community sits in the midst of a snow topped mountain scene. In the wake of achieving Everest Base Camp and dousing up the cold wild asylum, the course takes you to the summit of Kala Patthar, a staggering perspective to acknowledge Everest in all her transcendence. You will be really stunned by the vistas from here, mountains to the extent the eye can see, canvassed in a cover of snow. We then leave the base camp trekkers behind and take off to overcome the Cho La Pass at 5330 meters. Soak slants and rough ways anticipate you however your endeavors will be remunerated as you stroll through a heavenly high height mountain pass. In the event that this was insufficient, we then carry on further to the sparkling waters of the Gokyo Lake, an arrangement of new water and consecrated lakes, covered up in the high Himalaya.

A trek to the Gokyo Lakes is a simpler, less swarmed contrasting option to an Everest Base Camp trek. The landscape is heavenly and, from a high point above Gokyo, incorporates: Cho Oyu, a sensational perspective of the northwest face of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makalu: five 8 000m crests at the turn of a head! The following is a broad perspective of the kilometer wide Ngozumpa Glacier and the ice fields from which it streams.

This trek highlights the mind boggling view of the remote Gokyo Valley and its celebration of wonderful turquoise lakes, moonscape-like icy masses, and shocking mountain vistas that incorporate Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu – four of the eight most elevated tops on earth ! The 360-degree see from Gokyo - Ri is the best in the Khumbu Region.

Your landing into this high mountain valley called Gokyo is invited by a string of cobalt blue lakes that proceed for the 3-hour climb to Gokyo Village, which sits at the foot of Gokyo-Ri (Elevation: 17576 ft/5357 m ) a tremendous dark hill of shake and soil. The following morning, you are welcome to take the 3-hour climb to the summit of this dark, rough hill to witness the 360-degree Himalayan view offered just from this vantage point. The Himalayas stand like monsters guarding the fringe into Tibet. From Gokyo - Ri you'll see considerably more than Mount Everest – there are eminent perspectives of a large portion of the other 8000-meter tops from here also.
