Surrounded by lake and the thrilling routes in Solu-Khumbu region, Gokyo lake is yet another natural masterpiece. Everest Gokyo Lake Trekking is as equal to Everest Base Camp Trekking with surpassing beauty but fewer crowds. The major highlight of trekking to Gokyo Ri is a viewpoint with an astonishing panorama of the Himalaya as well as views of the sparkling lakes below and Nepal’s longest glacier.

Emerging as one of the best trek in the Khumbu region, the association with alpine nature is the major reason why everyone is including it in their bucket list. The second option round to Everest Base Camp Trek will meet expectation highlighting Everest, the highest peak and the most dangerous place in the planet. It is the best trekking choice for you if you want to exclude the crowd and fervor on base camp Trail.
