"Mountains are the cathedrals where I practice my religion." - Anatoli Boukreev
The highest freshwater lake system in the world, Gokyo Valley, is located in Nepal's Khumbu region Everest Region, which is home to multiple eight-thousanders including Mt. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8414m), and Cho Oyu (8414m) (8188m). Gokyo Valley, which is nestled beside the world's sixth highest peak, Cho Oyu (8188m), is a must-see for anybody seeking adventure, as its rocky yet peaceful environment is brimming with natural attraction. If you enjoy walking, the Gokyo Valley Trek is something you should not miss. The Gokyo Valley Trek is rated as moderately challenging, therefore anyone in reasonably excellent health should be able to complete it. Gokyo Valley is a living museum, studded with little villages and settlements that have remained untouched by civilization and preserved their natural surroundings. With their basic rural existence, the friendly Sherpa locals add to the attractiveness of the place. Gokyo Valley is also home to the world's highest freshwater lake system (4700-5000 m), which includes 19 large and minor lakes. Six of them are particularly notable due to their size and scope. Another attraction in the vicinity is Gokyo village (4700 m), a charming village on the third Gokyo Lake's shore. There are various stone cottages in this area, mostly tiny motels that cater to tourists and trekkers.
Aside from the natural splendor of Gokyo Valley, the walk includes passing through various Sherpa communities and Buddhist monasteries while taking in the uninterrupted view of the Khumbu Himalayas. The trek, which follows the Dudh Koshi River's routes throughout, takes trekkers from the green forested roads of Khumbu to the stony terrains of Ngozumpa Glacier, Nepal's largest glacier, making the trek action-packed rather than tedious. The most exciting aspect of traveling this trail is the spectacular vista of a massive ice ridge that runs between Cho You and Gyachung in the Khumbu region.It is also notable for its high-altitude lakes. These mountains, peaks, and glaciers have a magical quality to them, as do your interactions with the Sherpa people, the well-known mountain dwellers of this Himalayan beauty. The warmth and hospitality extended by the Sherpas, the district's residents, will enhance your Gokyo Valley Trek experience. This hiking track eventually leads to Gokyo Ri (Gokyo Peak), from which you may enjoy an awe-inspiring vista of hundreds of beautiful sceneries.

Very goo trip nicely organized by Mountain Mate Team
Outstanding Mountainmate trek & tour pvt. ltd.. My companion and I completed a 14-day journey to Gokyo and EBC with the help of a guide we hired from the business. Our trip was made wonderful by our guide MB (ask for MB if you can; he's the greatest!). He was extremely friendly, considerate, and wise. He taught us so much about the mountains, Nepali culture, and other things. He went above and above to ensure we had better accommodations at a reduced cost. My friend experienced signs of altitude sickness, but he knew exactly what to do and took care of him right away. Without Mb, it will be very hard for us. We could be flexible with our itinerary because we were not a large tour group. As a result, we were able to go further and stay longer in certain locations. Giri, the owner, made everything run very smoothly even during the booking procedure. Any time we had a question while booking or planning, we could easily contact him via WhatsApp.
MountainMate trek &tour provided me with fantastic service when I made my reservation for the gokyo valley trek. As a female traveler traveling alone, I always felt secure and well-cared for. Giri, the owner, is incredibly flexible and responds to all of my questions and needs, so I don't have to worry about the logistics of the trip at all. My guide, Rajan, is incredibly dependable, informed, and fluent in English. My porter, Rai, is dependable as well. I'll never forget the warm welcome I received in Nepal.
