Gokyo Ri Trek


This is our Gokyo Ri Trek

Gokyo Ri or Gokyo Peak (5,357m), is a peak climbing trek in the Khumbu region (Everest) of Nepal. It is located close to the west side of the Ngozumpa glacier (the largest glacier in Nepal). You’ll be trekking with our guides who were born in the region and have a lifetime of experience there.

You’ll stay at Gokyo (4,750m) and trek to the base of Gokyo Ri,where some of the highest settlements in the world are located. From Gokyo Ri it will be possible to see five 8,000m peaks which include Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kangchenjunga, and Cho Oyu. Many trekkers are fascinated by the impressive Gokyo Lakes which you’ll be passing alongside. This trek can be extended to include Everest Base Camp.
