Trekkers alternate choice in the Everest for an offbeat experience and scenic view of Khumbu Himalayan range from Gokyo Ri.

The most popular trekking adventure in Everest khumbu Region after EBC is Gokyo Lake Trek. The trails of Gokyo Lake Trekking caters the spectacular views of the world’s highest peak Mount Everest and other soaring Himalayan peaks including Ama Dablam, Cho-oyu, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu, Cholatse, Kongde and Thamserku among others.

Throughout the trails of Gokyo Lake Trek, enjoy the hospitality of friendly local Sherpas in their villages and observe Buddhist traditional and Sherpa culture. Grab an opportunity to witness authentic Buddhist culture, highland, Tibetan Monasteries and have fun walking through the wonderful trails of World Natural Heritage Site Sagarmatha National Park.

The prime highlight of Gokyo Lake trek is Gokyo Ri, an excellent view point just above Gokyo. The best time hike up to Gokyo Ri is early in the morning so that we could see the best 360 degree view of the mountains in Everest Region. To witness the first sunrise falling on the top of world’s highest peak Everest and its nearby siblings is one experience, which is rarest.

Apart from Gokyo Ri, the Gokyo Lake also highlights the cluster of Glacial lakes, which are world’s one of the largest fresh water reservoirs. Plus, the view of Nepal’s longest glacier Ngozumpa Glacier from the fifth lake of Gokyo is equally fascinating view.

If you willing to try something really unique in Nepal’s most popular trekking hub, Gokyo Lake Trek could be the best option. We assure undertaking the trek with us won’t disappoint you.

I did the ABC trek with Bashu and it was just fantastic! Bashu is fluent in English and German and had in depth knowledge on all related questions that our group had on our trek. I will certainly come back to Nepal again and would book another trip with him in a heartbeat!

Last December 2015/January 2016 we made the 18 days EBC trek, together with guide Kumar of Nepal Footprint Holidays and our porter Sudeep. Both great guys!! We had a marvellous time and food and lodges were a perfect arrangement! Chitwan was a hell of a ride, but worth it. Parkland Hotel in Chitwan was 100 % the right choise!

Nepal Footprint might be a small company but nevertheless excellent! 10/10 we would contact them again for the ABC trek Annapurna in the future!!

I went several time in Nepal and I always take Nepal Footprint Holidaz Trek. Everything was amazing every time and I can not advise some one to go with an other agency.

Je me suis rendue au Nepal a maintes reprise, et je suis toujours partie en trek avec Nepal Footlprint Holiday. Thapalyia est super et tres professionel. Je ne peux que conseiller de choisir son agence afin de passer d excellentes vacances.

We selected Nepal Footprint holidays for our Annapurna Base camp Trek during Oct 2016. We had a great time with the very knowledgeable guide there. They really took care of us.
