Furthermore, it also allows you to enjoy the shimmering sight of Makalu (8463 meter), Lhotse (8511 meter), Cho Oyu (8021 meter), Nuptse, Ama Dablam and obviously the Everest (8848 meter) along with the 360 degree view of the surrounding from Gokyo Ri which is situated at an altitude of 5340 meter above the sea level. The view of four peaks above eight thousands meter high can be observed from Gokyo Ri which is the main difference from Everest Base Camp Yoga Trek.
