The Goyko valley trek rewards us with a number of glistening turquoise lakes and a fantastic Ngozumpa Glacier that seems to stretch for miles. We move slowly up the valley enjoying the awe-inspiring, panoramic landscapes and base ourselves at Goyko for three nights exploring the surrounding area, with the opportunity to take a day walk to the fifth or sixth Lake and see the North face of Mt Everest.
From Goyko Ri the Views are the best in the whole region of Everest towering above at (8,848 m) After exploring this valley we cross over the Lhenjo La pass (5,417mt) into the Thame region before visiting some monasteries and returning to Namache to relax and enjoy the wonderful Nepalese hospitality. Lhenjo La pass offers the best vista of the whole Himalayan region.
We  fly to Lukla to start our trek up  into the beautiful  Goyko Valley whichs attracts fewer visitors than the neighbouring Everest Base Camp trek. We visit  Khumjung School and Kunde hospital which our famous Sir Edmund Hilary built giving the local Khumbu children health, knowledge and an opportunity of a educated future and better standard of living for their families and future generations.
