Gokyo valley trek is one of the most beautiful places in our country. It’s a small village in the Himalayan region at the foothills of the stunning Gokyo RI. The village is an isolated settlement at the altitude of 4,750 m/15,580 ft. being one of the highest hamlets on Earth. The top of the Gokyo RI offers its visitors surreal views of the Ngozumpa glacier and some of the highly shiny mountain peaks such as Cho Oyu [8,201 m/26,096 ft.], Everest [8,848/29,029 ft], Lhotse [8,516 m/27,940 ft.] and Makalu [8,481 m/27,825 ft].
Apart from them, you can also gain a sensational view of the ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung located in the region. However, the best is always the same that the course runs through the Everest Himalayan Region and provides its visitor’s panoramic views of the highest mountain peaks on Earth, the Everest, including several others. It’s no scam that Nepal isn’t one of the loveliest countries in the world also being one of the most visited countries too. The internet says it all or you may browse through our testimonial section to see what our previous visitors have mentioned about the country and their experiences.
Get into the Gokyo Valley and build a noble relationship with nature also taste the unique blend of the Tibetan and Nepali cultures and traditions. You will be overwhelmed as you find the local natives utterly friendly and welcoming. These people find it very fascinating when tourists from long way come to visit their places. The indigenous Sherpa people might not believe themselves unique, but foreign visitors are certain to see them through that perspective. A short trek around the valley reveals a lot about the country, its beauty and the cultures too. Meanwhile, you walk around the place, eccentric views of the surrounding environment will amuse you every time when you look around.
Apart from tourism concerns, places as such in the country are also exceptionally for environmental researchers, photographers, nature lovers and other kinds of explorers. If you are looking forward to going for the trek, we wish you the best holiday in the country accompanied by our team of “Above the Himalaya“.
