The Gokyo Lake is considered sacred site by both Buddhist,Traditionals & Hindus.
  • We came here after 3 days of tracking from Gorak Shep. The lakes are beautiful. We stayed at the village on the 3rd lakes and part of the team hiked up to Gokyo Ri. Saw the holy ducks and sat by the lake side despite the cold weather. it was so serene and peaceful.
  • This tranquil valley is more famous for glacier-fed Gokyo Lakes that are considered to be sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists.
