Gokyo is a high-altitude trek within the Everest region where you will observe Nepal's longest glacier, Ngazumpa Glacier, and a series of six beautiful high-altitude lakes. Gokyo and associated lakes have an entire area of 700 hectares and are known as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention in 2007. The alpine pasture and slopping mountains of the Gokyo Valley support varieties of species like the Kutki plant, Himalayan Thar, ounce, and Wood Snipe. This area is vital for several species of birds that migrate over the Himalayas. The side trip of the rocky peak, Gokyo Ri (5,357m), could be a tempting Himalayan viewpoint. You will see the vast bulk of the Ngazumpa glacier and Gokyo lakes within the settlement on the shores of the third lake. At an equivalent time from the Gokyo Ri, you can see four of the world's ten 8,000m mountains .i,e, Cho Oyo (8,201m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,485m), and Everest (8,848m). The highest of the Gokyo Ri has crisscrossed prayer flags that flutter within the fierce wind. Another side trip from Gokyo is further along the Ngazumpa Glacier through the valley on the moraine, with alpine pasture offering to soar and dramatic views of mountain peaks including Cho Oyu, Gychung Kang (7,922m), Mt. Everest, and therefore, 4th and 5th lakes. You will combine this trek with the Everest base camp trek by crossover a high-altitude pass called the Cho La (5,330m).
