Overview And Highlights

The major highlight of the Everest Gokyo Ri trek (Gokyo Ri 5,360m) and back, is the ascent of this magnificent hill (all five thousand are called ‘hills’ in Nepal), from where you can see some of the most spectacular mountain views. The trek starts and ends in Lukla and the trail never strays away from forests of pines and rhododendrons, overlooked by mighty snow giants in the background.

The actual trek begins in Lukla, where you fly from Kathmandu. The Kathmandu-Lukla flight is an adventure in itself because the tiny airstrip of Lukla, where you’ll land in order to start this trek, sits atop a steep hillside that seems to emerge from a group of low-drifting clouds. Just when you think that you’ll crash into it, the wheels will hit the ground! After surviving the flight you’ll be more than prepared for your trek to Gokyo Ri.
