Everest Gokyo Lake Trekking takes you through the trail of some rugged landscapes and off beaten paths through Namche, Dole, Machhermo, and eventually onto the Gokyo Valley, Gokyo Lakes, perched in the Sagarmatha National Park and close to the Everest Base Camp is a wonderful site to enjoy a pleasant and adventurous atmosphere, these lakes are the highest freshwater lakes in the world at an altitude of 4,700mts to 5,000mts above the sea level. Everest Gokyo Lake Trekking is Everest Marathon with Gokyo Valley is an extraordinary package which takes participants to Gokyo lake (4,800m), a hike to Gokyo RI(5,357 m) and requires crossing a pass, Cho-la pass at 5,367m.

This Gokyo Lake Trek is the best option route for Everest Base Camp Trek, it's immersed in the beauty of the Gokyo lake sparkling with the reflections of the above 8000 meters snowy peaks and enveloped by the lush Sagarmatha national park; a world heritage site rich on flora and fauna and sanctuary for diverse animal and bird species including elusive Himali Bear. Everest Gokyo Lake Trek altitude also creates a big problem here as you will be staying at elevations higher than 3500m for many days, you also trek to a height of around 5000m and more for about four times during the trek, here the air is quite thin, and altitude sickness affects many individuals. Even for unaffected people, breathing can be quite tricky, and the long trekking days adds more trouble.
