Gokyo Valley Trek

One of the most alluring treks through Gokyo Valley is offered by Himalaya Darshan Treks. A stunning and well-traveled trekking route lies in the Everest region. Through the distinctively cultural Sherpa communities, it follows the renowned valley of Gokyo. The Everest Gokyo Valley Trek leads to the lovely Gokyo Lake and the 5,360-meter Gokyo Peak.

The trip begins with a scenic flight to Lukla, followed by a hike through the Dudh Koshi River valley. The trail will take you through beautiful pine forests, Sherpa villages, and suspension bridges. You’ll pass through Namche Bazaar, a gateway for Everest Base Camp Trek. The trip also includes a hike to Gokyo Ri 5,360m, which offers panoramic views of the Himalayas including Mt Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and surrounding views.

Main Highlights of Gokyo Valley Trek:

Breathtaking mountain views: The trek offers breathtaking panoramic views of some of the world’s tallest mountains including Mount Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Cho Oyu (8,201m), and Makalu (8,463m). The view from Gokyo Ri, an observation point at 5,360m above sea level, is particularly popular.

Gokyo Lake: The trek will take you to a series of fascinating lakes known as Gokyo Lakes. These blue lakes are located at high altitudes and are a sight to behold.

Sherpa Culture and Tradition: Along the walking route, you will have a chance to experience the unique Sherpa culture and its warm hospitality. You can visit traditional Sherpa villages like Namche Bazaar and interact with the locals, understanding their lifestyle, traditions, and customs are influenced by Buddhism.

Sagarmatha National Park: The Gokyo Valley Trek is part of Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The park is home to a variety of flora and fauna, including rare species such as the snow leopard and the red panda. Walking through the park allows you to appreciate its natural beauty and conservation efforts.

Experience from afar and cross the beaten path:

While the Everest Base Camp trek attracts a large number of hikers, the Gokyo Valley Trek offers a quieter, less crowded alternative. The trail is relatively quiet, allowing you to enjoy the serenity of the mountains and immerse yourself in nature.

Best time to Gokyo Valley Trek

The best time to visit Gokyo Valley Trek is from September to December and from March to May.  Especially, November and December are some of the best times to do the Nepal trek. During those months the weather is very clear, so you can enjoy your trek with incredible mountain views. It gets hot during May, so wait for the time and be prepared for rain just before the monsoon season. Nowadays, Everest Trek is possible for all seasons.

Lukla Flight Information

Flight Information to /from Lukla: Due to the Kathmandu airport overcrowding, Flights to Lukla (Everest Region) depart from Manthali Airport (Ramechhap) for the busiest season. The distance from Kathmandu to Mathali airport is about 130 kilometers. So it takes about 3.5 to 4 hours to drive. We leave Kathmandu at 1 or 1.30 AM to catch our early morning flights from Manthali to Lukla.

Note: The flight will be departing from March 15 to May 15 and October to November. However, it depends on the decision of the airlines and the civil aviation authority of Nepal.

Lukla Flight Delay or Cancellations

The bad weather conditions and over traffic in Kathmandu airports are the main reasons for delaying and canceling flights. The weather in hilly and Himalayan regions will be changed so quickly. So, We at Himalaya Darshan Treks highly recommend managing a minimum of 1 or 2 extra days for your Everest and Dolpo region treks.

What is the Lukla Flight Weight limitation?

The airlines have a weight limitation of only 15 kilograms (about 33 pounds) per person so please try to make your luggage less than 15 kilograms. Otherwise, you have to pay extra money but it is only possible if there is no overweight on the plane. So, the best option is to make your bag light

Finally, we highly recommend Gokyo Valley Trek for your holiday in Nepal. If you have enough time and interest you can continue your trek from Gokyo Chola Pass EBC Trek or Gokyo Renjo La Pass Trek. We are always happy and ready to organize your Trekking in Nepal. Feel free to contact us.
