About Gokyo Lake Trek

Gokyo Lakes Trek is an alternative to classic Everest Base Camp trek. Instead, it takes us to the turquoise Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri, offering exceptional views of Everest and the Himalayas. As well as the less crowded trekking destination in the Everest region, this trek offers an amazing six glacial Gokyo lakes and the highest mountains.
Gokyo Lake Trek is for those who like to walk in the Everest region without the physical stress of reaching the Everest Base Camp or passing high passes in the region. It's for travelers who like to try something new in the Everest region.
How Difficult is the Gokyo Lake Trek
For a trek of this length at such a high altitude, this trek is considered 'moderate.' The summit, at around 5,400 meters, will be reached if trekking a route that ascends Gokyo Ri. The summit of Gokyo Ri is around the same height as Everest Base Camp, making this trek likely easier in terms of altitude.
You will not be sleeping at this altitude at any point during the trek, and there are few nights spent above 4,000 meters than the Everest Base Camp trek, making it less difficult in terms of potential altitude-related concerns.
