Gokyo Valley Trekking route takes you to the less popular, yet more beautiful, part of the Everest region. The journey begins with the exploration of the ancient, cultural and historical heritage of Kathmandu valley. Take on this less traveled path as we wander through the trail to the settlements of Dole and Machhermo. followed by the beautiful Gokyo valleyand an exploration of the Gokyo village, one of the highest settlements in the world. As a part of this trek, we will ascend the Gokyo Peak. Atop the ridge, there is a stunning view of the Ngozumba glacier, from where, you can enjoy panoramic views, which have to be seen to be believed. The Ngozumpa glacier provides a picture-perfect backdrop for this stunning panorama. Everest (8848m), Lhotse (8511m), Cho Oyu (8153m) and Makalu (8463m) are the five highest mountains to see from here. The view from this peak is more beautiful than the iconic and more popular Kala Patthar in the Everest region. The return journey from Gokyo valley is a leisurely trek to Namche and Lukla, before returning to Kathmandu. Intermittently, we also trek past Buddhist monasteries and prayer wheels, suspension bridges festooned with prayer flags and other cultural symbols.

I am originally from the Gorkha district of Nepal. I am a government trained professional trekking guide and I have guided on most of the trekking routes and tours in Nepal. I am also a travel consultant for several well-known trekking companies. It has been an exciting journey for me. I started as a porter and worked my way up to become a highly respected guide and consultant. I now run a trekking company. Nepal is a fascinating and diverse country, where just a few miles will take you into a completely different landscape. I enjoy finding new routes so that our clients can have the best possible choice. And I enjoy travelling with them as they discover my country for themselves.
