Everest Gokyo Valley Trekking

The Gokyo Valley offers a spectacular high mountain scenery. Fly to Lukla and visit Namche Bazaar, famous starting point for countless treks and expeditions.

Even though there are routes that take you closer to Mt. Everest, the view from the Gokyo Lake over to the highest mountain on earth is known to be the most beautiful one, taking in a wide vista of snowy white mountains.
