Trekking around Gokyo valley is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in Nepal’s Himalayas. The sparkling, pristine blue and green waters of the Gokyo Lakes are one of Nepal's most memorable sights.
Along the trek, we will pass Buddhist monasteries with the views of Everest and other snow towering mountains getting closer by the day.
