Tour Details

Gokyo Ri trekking is a popular trekking trail in the Everest region. It offers excellent views of Everest Himalayan range, which usually is less crowded than the base camp trekking. This trekking is also taken as an alternative to the traditional route to Everest Base Camp. The view of the Everest and other adjacent peaks from Gokyo is exceptionally beautiful and offers more of the legendary mountain than from the views from Kala Patthar.
