The 11-day Gokyo Lake Luxury Trek package is a fantastic one. Let’s look at the route overview so that we get a clear picture of what we can expect.
The trip begins when you hop on a flight to Kathmandu. After you land at the Tribhuvan International Airport and head towards the departure area, you’ll see one of our staff. He is the one holding a Nepal Hiking Team display board which will be clearly visible in the crowds. Then, he’ll greet you and escort you to the hotel.
Early morning, we take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, a small village in the Khumbu region. After landing on Lukla, we’ll gather our baggage, and backpacks and begin the hike to Phakding. The next walk follows Namche Bazaar, where we’ll cross bridges, forests, and rivers.
On the acclimatization day at Namche, we hike to Everest View Hotel to catch the 360-degree views of Lhotse, Mt Everest, and Nuptse.
The hike then resumes, where we head towards Thame, Lunden, and cross Renjo La Pass to reach Gokyo Lakes, our ultimate destination. We’ll rest there for the night and prepare for the hike arranged for the other day. In the morning, a short hike is set to Gokyo Ri. After hours of steep climbing, you’ll finally reach the top to witness the stunning views of the glaciers and views of Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu.
Adventure doesn’t stop here. After a good night's rest, the other day, you’ll hop on a helicopter to Lukla and then rest there for the night. Later, we catch a flight back to Kathmandu and bid farewell to the Khumbu region.
When is the best month for the Gokyo Lake Luxury Trek?
We want your trekking experience to be fantastic. And one way we can elevate this experience is by suggesting the best time for the trek.
The best month for the Gokyo Lakes Luxury Trek is in March-May and September-November. These months fall under the spring and autumn seasons, the most popular time for the trek.
You can also trek in the winter season but must be ready to face hardships. By hardships, we mean to say that the temperature will be below minus degrees, and the lake will also be frozen at this time.
Hence, it is ideal for trekking in the best month.
Is the Gokyo Lake Luxury Trek for beginners?
Yes, beginners can opt for the Gokyo Lake Luxury Trek with proper preparation and instructions.
The routes on which you need to traverse on is a blend of uphill and downhill terrains. But, on the positive side, after reaching Gokyo, you’ll take a helicopter ride instead of retracing back the track to Lukla. Therefore, even if you are a beginner, you can complete the trek easily.
Next, we can also look at the altitude level of the trek. The highest altitude level on the Gokyo Lakes Luxury Trek is 5360m. At this level, there is a risk of acute mountain sickness, but we have taken care of this situation. To avoid AMS, we have prepared our itinerary with enough acclimatization days. Hence, you can complete the trek without any worry.
