Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is a beautiful journey to the enticing Gokyo lakes and Gokyo Ri which is one of the most amazing viewpoints for great views of Everest and other Himalayas. The 14-day trip begins in Kathmandu where we visit several heritage sites. The Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek is an alternative to classical treks in the Everest region. Instead, it takes us to the turquoise Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri which provides exceptional views of Everest and the Himalayas. We also get to marvel at the massive Ngozumpa Glacier and the Gokyo valley from Gokyo Ri.

Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri trek is for those who like to walk in the Everest region without the physical stress of reaching the base camp of Everest or crossing high passes in the vicinity. It is instead for travelers who wish to try something new in the Everest region.  However, for trekkers who want to reach the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain then Everest Base Camp Trek: 16 days is ideal. Another option for trekkers who like to conquer high mountain passes in the Everest region is the Everest High Passes Trek: 20 days.

Компания Happy Hari trekking была порекомендована мне приятелем из Непала и я нисколько не пожалела об этом выборе. Два Hari - два основателя компании и их команда очень дружелюбные и приятные люди, которые позаботились о правильно подобранном и очень опытном проводнике (а в треккинге мне предстояло провести 27 дней). Индра ( мой проводник) хотя и имел проблемы с английским языком, но он очень надежный. Как то раз другие туристы ждали нас, потому что их собственный проводник не смог провести их через ледник, но мой Индра сделал это! Мне также понравилось, что в пути я могла сама выбирать направление и Индра был готов к этому. Он учитывал мои пожелания и выбирал наилучший из возможных вариантов, чтобы дойти туда и увидеть то, что я хотела. Поэтому я еще и благодарна ему за невероятное тепрение.

С Happy Hari trekking мне удалось не просто совершить высокогорный треккинг но и пройти к Base camp Everest через деревни шерпа и дойти до пока еще мало посещаемого туристами Pikey Peak. Для тех, кто не может подниматься высоко в горы, это хорошая и очень интересная альтернатива. Я очень рекомендую эту компанию тем, кто желает не просто пройти по туристической тропе, но и иметь возможность выбирать собственный маршрут.
