Gokyo Lakes, Sagarmatha National Park

5.0
#2 of 8 in Things to do in Sagarmatha National Park
Admire pristine clear lakes reflecting the magnificent Mount Everest at Gokyo Lakes. Worshipped both by Buddhist and Hindus, the moon-like landscape feels out of the world and evokes feelings of sanctity. Feel the power of the mighty Himalayas as you walk along the trails around the lake providing breathtaking views of untouched nature. Standing at 4,700- 5,000 m (15,400- 16,400 ft), the lakes' conditions can be extreme so don't forget to bring warm clothes and good hiking equipment.

  • This tranquil valley is more famous for glacier-fed Gokyo Lakes that are considered to be sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists.
  • Solukhumbu District, Nepal. This trekking presents an exceptional chance to witness gigantic Himalayan ranges over 8000m including the highest Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Makalu and the Ngozumpa Glacier- the largest glacier in the Nepal Himalayas !! We can also visit the Sagarmatha National park to view the protected floras and faunas, Also see the sights of Gokyo valley !!

  • 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.
