A TREK TO GOKYO RI IN THE EVEREST REGION, NEPAL
What is our Adventure going to look like? We would like you to understand where we go and the challenge it is for us.
Gokyo Lake is located in the Sagarmatha National Park, home to Mount Everest, and Gokyo Ri (5,360m) is at the same altitude as Everest Base Camp.
The Gokyo Lake trip follows the same route as the Dudh Kosi River and the Khumbu valley up until Namche Bazar, that used to be a commercial outpost on the road between Tibet and Nepal. The path splits just before Tengboche, ascending over the Monjola pass. The serene view comprises of four 8 Thousanders from Gokyo Ri: breathtaking views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Makalu, and other snow-capped peaks
Duration: 12 Days
Highest Elevation: Gokyo Ri – 5,360m
Walking hours: 4-9 hours per day
Maximum Altitude: 5,360m (17,585ft)
The trek itself is a challenging one and will test each of our capabilities.
- Nov 7 to the 14: we climb slowly, acclimatizing from Lukla Airport where we arrive to the Thanka Inn next to the beautiful Gokyo Lake.
- On November 15, we hope to be able to summit Gokyo Ri, testing our will and preparation!
- From Nov 16 to the 19th, we will start our way down to then fly back to Kathmandu on the 20th
As we are in extreme high altitudes, the trek can be stopped at any point, should one of us not acclimatize enough, or be simply exhausted after 6 to 9 Hours of trek per day.
Should you wish to participate to one of our next donors journey in the Spring of 2023, or Fall of 2023, contact us.
If you would raise $10,000, we will welcome you in Nepal and organize a complimentary trek of similar value ($3000) for you.
