alternative to the Everest Base Camp is the Gokyo Lake which provides perfect
views of four of the highest mountains in the world – Mount Everest (8848m),
Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m) and Cho Oyu (8153m). Experience the scenic
beauty of Gokyo Lake draped in a Himalayan backdrop. The highlight of this trek
is the challenging ascent of Gokyo Ri (5,357m) which rewards climbers with
panoramic views of many peaks and a sight which encapsulates Ngozumpa – Nepal’s
largest glacier. This trek reaches high altitudes quite quickly so it is
important to take the suggested acclimatisation days and to be aware of signs
of altitude sickness. For more information, please refer to the health and
safety section. It is possible to combine this trek with the Everest Base Camp
