Gokyo Valley Trek, a short trip to Everest Region leads you to the beautiful and charming hamlet Gokyo Valley which is one of the highest settlements in the Himalaya of Nepal, is a very popular trekking route. The series of emerald green lakes along the Ngozumpa Glacier, thrilling hike up to Gokyo peaks and heart stopping view from there is unique experience. The route itself ends at Gokyo Ri, and trekkers typically turn around at this point and retrace their steps back to the trailhead. There are two alternative routes, one that leads to main Everest Base Camp trail to east over the Chola Pass (5420m, 17782 ft.), and other one Renjo La Pass (5417 m, 17767ft) to the west of Gokyo valley leads to cultural Thame Village ( see Everest 3 Passes Trek). 
Gokyo Peak known as a Gokyo Ri (5357m, 17 575ft. above sea level) is a peak in the Khumbu region of the Nepal Himalayas. It takes approximately 2 hours to climb it from hotel. Most of the trekkers start hike before dawn to experience the stunning sun rise view from the summit. From Gokyo Ri we can see the brilliant view of four 8,000 meter peaks - Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu moreover beautifully reflected images of the snowy peaks in the aqua blue Gokyo lakes is awesome sight in the clear weather.
