Gokyo lake & Gokyo peak trek

After two days exploring the fascinating city of Kathmandu, we fly to Lukla to commence our trek.We follow the Dudh Kosi (Milk River) valley, through villages inhabited by the warm-hearted Sherpa people, to Namche Bazaar with its colorful and vibrant market place. We then cross the Mong La (la means mountain pass) into the Gokyo Valley.For the next few days, our trekking days are short, to ensure safe acclimatization as we ascend towards our lodge at Gokyo. Gokyo Ri (ri means ridge or peak) stands 5360 metre high and the views from the top are magnificent, showing all the 8000 metre peaks in the area including Everest, Lhotse, and Cho Oyu(8201m) on the Tibetan border.The lakes at Gokyo are usually a vibrant turquoise color, but if you visit in winter (Dec/Jan) they are likely to be deeply frozen and it is a unique experience to skate on the ice!From Gokyo, we trek back to Lukla varying our path to visit Thyangboche, a beautiful and tranquil Buddhist monastery set high on an open ridge with the Everest massif towering above.Back in Lukla we celebrate our adventure Sherpa-style with our trekking crew, before flying back to Kathmandu for more opportunities to shop, sightseeing and relax.
