Amazing trip to gokyo ri

23rd Apr, 2018

My son and I chose team Himalaya because of amazing past experiences with raj on another trek with my daughter (10yrs) on the Annapurna circuit. My son(14yrs) and I where looking for a longer and more challenging trek to gokyo ri. It was a fantastic and relaxing experience as raj took care of most of the details eg permits, food, water, accommodation and transport, which made everything a lot easier and stress free so we could enjoy the scenery. I highly reccommend team Himalaya

What an amazing adventure to Gokyo Valley and the glacial lakes with stunning panoramic views. Certainly a mind-blowing experience of a lifetime, enjoy every day of the scenic walks around the beautiful location. The walk although quite tough in some places with strenuous climb like to Namche Bazaar and Mong Hill.
As the walk progressed along with beautiful views, the hard walk and high altitude gain was soon forgotten. Truly a great picturesque location and the climb to Gokyo-Ri was just unbelievable, very exciting makes you feel out of this world.
The mountain panorama from Gokyo-Ri was awesome, hard to believe that I did this trek on the right season of time. Thanks to Team Himalaya for making my holiday in Nepal enjoyable and memorable.

Trip Reviews (3)

My son and I chose team Himalaya because of amazing past experiences with raj on another trek with my daughter (10yrs) on the Annapurna circuit. My son(14yrs) and I where looking for a longer and more challenging trek to gokyo ri. It was a fantastic and relaxing experience as raj took care of most of the details eg permits, food, water, accommodation and transport, which made everything a lot easier and stress free so we could enjoy the scenery. I highly reccommend team Himalaya

Amazing trip to gokyo ri

23rd Apr, 2018


Certainly a mind blowing experience on top of Gokyo-Ri overlooking grand panorama of world’s four highest peaks. Namely Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, 
Mt. Makalu and Mt. Cho-Oyu. Gokyo-Ri at the height of 5,357 m / 17,575 feet high. We had a great view, more of surrounding peaks that surrounded the high Gokyo-Ri. Facing whole of Gokyo scenic valley and the emerald colored lakes with Nepal longest Ngozumpa glacier. Truly a fascinating hill top for once in a lifetime experience, thanks to our guide and all staff of Team Himalaya. One of the best trip ever enjoyed, I would like to join for another trekking adventure with Team Himalaya.

What an amazing adventure to Gokyo Valley and the glacial lakes with stunning panoramic views. Certainly a mind-blowing experience of a lifetime, enjoy every day of the scenic walks around the beautiful location. The walk although quite tough in some places with strenuous climb like to Namche Bazaar and Mong Hill.
As the walk progressed along with beautiful views, the hard walk and high altitude gain was soon forgotten. Truly a great picturesque location and the climb to Gokyo-Ri was just unbelievable, very exciting makes you feel out of this world.
The mountain panorama from Gokyo-Ri was awesome, hard to believe that I did this trek on the right season of time. Thanks to Team Himalaya for making my holiday in Nepal enjoyable and memorable.
