 About Trip 
Gokyo Valley is a picturesque alpine valley in the beautiful Everest Region. This one-of-a-kind walk to Gokyo Valley takes you through the various Himalayan foothills. This journey takes a different path than the standard Everest Base Camp trek. This beautiful journey is less popular and so ideal for a relaxing trip. Gokay Valley Trek is the  sponteneous journey in the high himalya which gives you highland natural beauty and 360 panaromic from gokyo ri (5357m/17575ft) and the rural chatains, stupas, monastries and rural communities gives the vibes of Tibetan namad/s and cultural explore.

Trekkers may see breathtaking natural scenery and go across magnificent Himalayan slopes. The course of this Gokyo valley trip begins in Lukla, where we arrive via Himalayan aircraft from Kathmandu. The hikers then go along the normal EBC routes, passing via Phakding and Namche Bazar. After acclimatizing in Namche, the trail departs from the conventional EBC trip and takes you to Dole.

The trek follows the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River and traverses the renowned Ngozumpa Glacier. Gokyo village (4750m) is a picturesque community where you may observe numerous Yak herders.

After trekking to Gokyo Ri (5360m) and seeing the surroundings, you will return to Dole. Finally, you will retrace your steps and return to Namche and Lukla.
