Gokyo Valley also known as Gokyo Ri is a traditional trek that offers spectacular scenic beauty of soaring mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa glacier –'the largest glacier in the himalayas'. We begin this one of a kind trek with the fun mountain flight to Lukla coupled with rewarding mountains views. The trail follows through Namche Bazaar, Thami and Khumlung where we spend great time acclimatizing to the altitude surrounded by the Himalayan peaks of Thamserku, Ama Dablam and Kangteiga, just to mention a few.
The valley offers the panoramic views of the snow-capped mountains lying from north to south in the Everest regions which makes it one of the most visited trekking routes in the Everest region.
