It was great hiking with Tripura

Gokyo lake trek is located in the Everest region. I was checking who is the best trekking provider in Kathmandu and got to know about Tripura Travelcations by friends. The people in Tripura are very friendly. They provide me the best guide they could offer. My overall Gokyo lake trek was fantastic.

Ideal weather to climb Gokyo Ri

I fell in love with the area at first glance. My group planned to walk along the glacier to see more lakes that afternoon. But it was foggy and chilly cold so we went back to the lodge shortly after departure. Luckly, the next morning was sunny and the sky was clear - ideal weather to climb Gokyo Ri.
