Gokyo Ri trek is one of the most exciting, adventurous, and lifetime experiences trekking routes in Nepal. The journey will start from Kathmandu- the Lukla flight for about 30 minutes. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is quite exciting as Lukla Airport is among the most adventurous airports in the world. And we will be viewing all the panoramic views of mountains, valleys, villages, jungles, and many other beautiful natural beauty.
We then trek towards Namche Bazar and this is the formal starting of our Gokyo Ri Trekking. Beautiful scenery on our way to Namche and even higher places will attract you again and again. The panoramic view of mountains, hills, and the way filled with snow will never let you feel tired. The beautiful Lake, valley, and its surroundings after reaching the Gokyo Ri make you feel ‘ I'm not going to leave this place. These are the combo trekking routes, where you will be exploring everything that can be found in the high Himalayas, some Lakes & glaciers as well.
As winter is extremely cold, the trekking routes remain closed in the winter season. The level of snow rises day by day and can even cover up to 1 meter. Which makes us human beings uncomfortable with what we are willing to do. Gokyo Ri is a peak situated at 5350 meters around Gokyo Valley, and it is tall enough to see the majestic Mt Everest.
