Namaste and welcome to Gokyo Ri,Chola pass and Kalapathar Trekking,
Trekking around Gokyo Valley is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest in the Nepal Himalayas. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal, at an altitude of 8000m Such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. One of the most remarkable views of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2922m) located in Khumbu region. After a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip, the adventure really begins.
is very important. Before going trek to Gokyo Ri (5383 meters), we return back to Namche and Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.
