Overview

Everest Gokyo Ri Trek is one of the best trekking in Everest. The exciting trip around the Everest and into the valley of glacial lakes, the fantastic trip offers to collect the best views of the mountains and to explore the vibrant Sherpa villages. The inclusion of the exploration of the glacial lakes of Gokyo is a great part of the adventure. Whereas, hiking to Gokyo Ri to collect the best views of mountains including Mount Everest is special.
The Gokyo Lakes trek not only includes the views of the mountains but to explore the vibrant Sherpa villages as well. Well known as the mountaineers, Sherpa people are born mountaineers. The exploration of the beautiful Sherpa villages of Phakding, Namche Bazar, Dole, and more are the part of the trip. Similarly, trekking through the rhododendron and pine forest is fantastic. Occasional encounters of the wildlife including Himalayan musk deer, snow leopard adds excitement on the trip. 
Trekking in Nepal is a seasonal activity and it applies the same for Everest Gokyo Lakes Trek. The best time to trek Everest Gokyori is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Likewise, trekking in Everest is possible in the months of the winter (December to February) as well. But trekking Everest Gokyo Ri in the months of monsoon (June to August) is not recommended due to the heavy rainfall.
