Best Experience!

We had an amazing trek to Gokyo Lake trek with Aneel and Hari. This is our second trip to Nepal with oriental Journeys in Nepal in the Everest region. We are really looking for the trek without much crowd on the trail and Machhindra from company recommend us for Gokyo Lake trek. We have taken the same guide and porter that we took last year for the Everest Base Camp Trekking. There was a heap of snow over a few days and the scene was just amazing and it was really miraculous. I would definitely come back with Oriental Journeys next time for another wonderful trip to Nepal.

Wonderful trek!

I and my husband did Gokyo Lake Trek and we are both in our 50s. The trip was of 14 days in total. We have a very wonderful guide and porter. We take rest for two days for the acclimatization and local sightseeing. We both were very happy because we were walking through the base camp route. Gokyo lake is really beautiful. We did see many tourists on the way. Since there is a chance of losing the trail, the trek would be safer with a guide. The entire trekking experience was amazing! We will come to Nepal again for another beautiful trek in Nepal with the same company and guide. Thank you Oriental Journeys for making this happen.

Enjoy the mesmerizing view of Gokyo Lake!

Gokyo Lake Trek is the mesmerizing trek in the Everest Region of Nepal. If you want to explore the stunning views of impressive Himalayas in a non-touristy area of EBC, you can choose Gokyo Lake trek. I went to the Gokyo Lake trek with my friends on May with Oriental Journeys. They have a very high professional guide and he cared us all the way around. The view of Lake is really stunning. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the lake and Nepal is really rich in natural sceneries. I would definitely recommend Oriental Journeys for their professional services. The food and accommodation are also good in the teahouse lodge.

I and my husband did Gokyo Lake Trek and we are both in our 50s. The trip was of 14 days in total. We have a very wonderful guide and porter. We take rest for two days for the acclimatization and local sightseeing. We both were very happy because we were walking through the base camp route. Gokyo lake is really beautiful. We did see many tourists on the way. Since there is a chance of losing the trail, the trek would be safer with a guide. The entire trekking experience was amazing! We will come to Nepal again for another beautiful trek in Nepal with the same company and guide. Thank you Oriental Journeys for making this happen.

Enjoy the mesmerizing view of Gokyo Lake!

Gokyo Lake Trek is the mesmerizing trek in the Everest Region of Nepal. If you want to explore the stunning views of impressive Himalayas in a non-touristy area of EBC, you can choose Gokyo Lake trek. I went to the Gokyo Lake trek with my friends on May with Oriental Journeys. They have a very high professional guide and he cared us all the way around. The view of Lake is really stunning. I am overwhelmed by the beauty of the lake and Nepal is really rich in natural sceneries. I would definitely recommend Oriental Journeys for their professional services. The food and accommodation are also good in the teahouse lodge.

Amazing trek to Gokyo Lake!

I went with my fiance in the Gokyo Lake Trek. I really like Gokyo Lake Trek in the Everest region of Nepal. Most of the people are familiar with the EBC trek but if you think more in EBC, Gokyo is really a good choice with extraordinary scenery and the background. I really enjoyed the crystal clear views of the water in the Lake. Wow! it's really an amazing lake. Thank you Oriental Journeys and guide Aneel for managing this wonderful trip. I definitely recommend Oriental Journeys for the everlasting memory of the trip.
