Gokyo Thame Trek

Explore the Buddhist and Sherpa Culture of Everest.


GokyoThame trekking is perfect for the ones who wish to trek in the Everest region avoiding the crowd. The Gokyo Lake lies in the path of this trekking trail with the spectacular view of the majestic mountains and gorgeous villages.

Crossing the Renjola pass (5360m) will take you to the Bhotekoshi valley that lies in the trade route between Nepal and Tibet. You will get a better panoramic view of the mountains, including Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalau, Mt. Cho Oyu and 27 others, from the Renjola pass and as you cross the pass you will come to the Thame village, which is the home of the Sherpas.

Autum and spring are the best seasons to trek to GokyoThame, especially from September to December and February to May, and the trekking expedition is suitable for trekkers who want to cross high passes without any difficult climbing. The lush green forests, the glistening lakes and the culture of the Sherpas alongside the trekking path add more charm to the trip. One needs to be physically fit to complete the journey and enjoy the trip to the fullest and the trip is designed to avoid high altitude sickness. The trekkers can explore the jungle and view various endangered species.
