The trek to Goyko offers an alternative to the traditional Everest base camp trek. From Goyko Ri there are better views of Everest than the more traditional viewing spot of Kala Pattar. The mountains are more spectacular, the Ngozumpa Glacier is the largest in the Nepal Himalaya and from a ridge above Gokyo four 8000-meter peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu) are visible. The view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is one of the most dramatic panoramas in Khumbu Himalaya.
