Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is a beautiful journey to the enticing Gokyo lakes and Gokyo Ri which is
one of the most amazing viewpoints for great views of Everest and other Himalayas. The 14-day trip begins in Kathmandu where we visit several heritage sites. The Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is an alternative to classical treks in the Everest region. Instead, it takes us to the turquoise Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri which provides exceptional views of Everest and the Himalayas. We also get to marvel at the massive Ngozumpa Glacier and the Gokyo valley from Gokyo Ri.

Accommodations will be provided in Kathmandu at a 3-star hotel. For the trek we will be using lodges or
teahouses for accommodations. All accommodations are on twin-shared basis. Single supplement will be
served on request and will cost an additional USD 310.

We will be provided all meals during the trek while buffet-style breakfast will be made available in
Kathmandu. Most lodges/teahouses in the mountains will serve Nepali, Indian, Tibetan and the more
common continental dishes. While trekking we have breakfast and dinner from the lodge menu whereas
lunch will be taken on route to the next destination. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners.

Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is a moderate trek. If we are able to walk for around 5-6 hours each day
we can easily trek for longer hours with a light back pack. The trek is relatively easier for those who are
used to walking in higer elevations. Superb Catalyst Trekking requests its guests to jog and exercise regularly at least a few months before the beginning of the trip. Past hiking experience would be an asset but no technical skill is required for this trip. It is also important that we consult with our doctor before booking the trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood diseases should also inform Superb Catalyst trekking before booking the trek.

We can do Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek during Autumn (Sept. to November) and Spring (March to
May) seasons. During this time the sky is clear and the views are excellent. The weather is fit for trekking
without rain. We can also enjoy lush vegetation on the lower regions of the trail particularly during the
spring season.
