We will follow the classic Everest Base Camp Route from Lukla via beautiful Sherpa villages of Phakding, Monju and Namche Bazaar. From Namche we still follow the main trail till Sanasa and the trail to Gokyo Valley follows Dudh Koshi River to its source, Ngozumpa Glacier towards beautiful hamlet of Gokyo Valley.

Everest (8848m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516m) and Cho Oyo (8201m) with many other small snow-capped peaks. We will have chance to see and enjoy Turquoise enticing blue high altitude lakes around Gokyo Valley in the area which are considered to be holy.
The Gokyo Ri trek, also known as Gokyo Valley or Gokyo Lake Trek is a fairly popular trekking trail. The route itself ends at Gokyo Ri and Gokyo Lake fifth and trekkers typically turn around at this point and retrace their steps back to the trailhead. There are two alternative trekking routes that begins near the southern tip of Ngozumpa Glacier. This alternative route leads east over the Cho La, a pass at 5,420 m (17,782 ft) to meet with the main Everest Base Camp trek. Many people combined Gokyo Ri trek with Everest Base Camp
