Among all the lakes, Thonak Lake is the largest. Similarly, The minimum elevation of Gokyo Lake is 4,700 meters above sea level and the highest elevation is 5,000 meters above sea level.

Besides that, astonishing views of Everest can also be seen from the top of Gokyo Ri. Besides Gokyo village which lies at an elevation of 4,790 meters above sea level besides Goko lake, 3 is also the main highlight of the area.

Sagarmatha National Park

Sagarmatha National Park is the most popular national park of Nepal that lies in Province 1 of Nepal. Established on July 19, 1976, it covers an area of 1,148 square kilometers. Meanwhile, this national park was included in the UNESCO world heritage site in 1979. Besides being the home to rare species of flora and fauna, Sagarmatha National Park also holds some of the deep valleys, glaciers, and lakes as well as the 8 mountain ranges above 7,000 meters.

The warm hospitality of the sherpas is also a major thing to experience inside the Sagarmatha national park. Besides that, you can also learn the tradition and culture of the local Sherpas. Some of the most popular areas around the Sagarmatha National Park include the Namche Bazaar, Dingboche, Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri, and many more.

Renjo La Pass 

Renjo la pass is the highest point of the Gokyo Lakes trek besides that it is also one of the major high trekking passes of Nepal. It lies at an elevation of 5,340 meters above sea level. Besides that, it is also one of the most challenging passes of the Everest region that lies north of Namche Bazaar. Besides that, you can also witness the marvelous views of the high mountain ranges and the deep valleys from the top of the pass.

You can reach Lunde village after crossing the Renjo La Pass from Gokyo Lakes. The alpine glacial views and snowy trails are the exciting part of this pass. Renjo La Pass is one of three major passes in the Everest region. But the scenarios, landscape, and sherpa culture are worth any difficulties during the trek. The trekking route to Renjo La Pass is less crowded than other trekking routes in the Everest Region. So it is a must place to try if you are willing to trek in the less crowded trekking route of the Everest region.

Best Time for Gokyo Lakes Trek

Gokyo Valley is one of the least crowded hiking trails in the Everest region of Nepal. Meanwhile, it is an ideal choice for adventure seekers who are willing to try the least crowded area of the same region. Due to the heavy rainfall in the Monsoon season of the year, it is better not to trek Gokyo Valley during this season of the year. Besides that, due to high snowfall, the winter season of the year is also not favorable for trekking.

March, April, and May are the best time for trekking in the Gokyo Lakes trek in Nepal. Meanwhile, during this season you can also witness the beautiful rhododendron flower blooming in the lower parts of the trek. Similarly, another best time for the Gokyo Valley trek is during September, October, and November. Due to high visibility, you can witness astonishing views of the mountain ranges during these months of the year.

Permits and Entry Fees

Before 2018 the trekkers traveling to Gokyo Valley need to pay for the TIMS card. But after 2018 the local government of the Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality will replace the TIMS card. Instead of a TIMS card, you will need to get a Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit. Meanwhile, you can get this pass only in Monjo or Namche. Similarly, the cost of a Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Permit is Nrs 2,000 per person.

Another pass you will need during the Gokyo Lakes trek is the Sagarmatha National Park Permit. Almost all the trekking trails of the Gokyo valley lie inside the Sagarmatha National Park of Nepal. Because of that it is mandatory to get a Sagarmatha National Park Permit. You can get this pass from Kathmandu or Monjo. The cost of this permit is Nrs 3,000 per person (subject to change).

Difficulty Level

Gokyo Valley is a moderate to difficult level of trek that lies in the Khumbu region of Nepal. Almost all the treks in the Khumbu region are quite difficult as it lies at a high elevation. The trail to Gokyo Lake is not so difficult, but the trail to reach the Renjo la pass is one of the difficult parts of the trek. The altitude of the Renjo La Pass is 5,340 meters above sea level. Because of that, there are high chances of getting altitude sickness. Because of that, you will need to slowly gain altitude and acclimatize to avoid altitude sickness. But no technical climbing skills are required to cross the pass.

Daily 6-8 hours of walking is required to complete the trek in time. This trekking trail gets comparatively fewer travelers than the Everest base camp trek. But the trail is easily navigable as there are various sign boards throughout the trekking trails. Meanwhile, you will need to walk steep uphill as well as downhill on the rough trails of the Himalayas. Because of that, the hikers must be physically fit, and regular exercise a few weeks before the trek is a must.

Day 05

Acclimatization in Namche Bazaar.

Trekking to higher elevations can potentially cause altitude sickness and other serious illnesses associated with high altitudes.

To prevent altitude sickness, it is important to follow these guidelines: stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and consuming carbohydrates, maintain your usual pace, and acclimatize gradually and properly.

Travel Insurance: Travel insurance is important before traveling to a new place especially when you are traveling for adventure. Travel insurance covers risks such as loss of personal belongings, and any unexpected expenses. Travel insurance also covers sudden medical emergencies such as accidents. It also covers high-altitude emergency evacuation in case of trekking. Travel insurance is not compulsory but highly recommended. 

Medical Emergency: If you face any serious medical emergency during your trekking program you will immediately evacuate the place through Helicopter Rescue which the traveler’s insurance company will cover. While trekking to the highland of Nepal you may face minor health issues such as scratches, headaches, etc. For such a situation, your guide carries a well-equipped first aid kit, ensuring nothing happens to you.  

High-Altitude Sickness: During the Gokyo Lakes Trek you will walk through gorgeous valleys, traditional villages, and thrilling highlands above 3,000m elevation. Altitude sickness is unpredictable; it can happen to anyone despite being physically and mentally fit. As you gain altitude, the chances of getting altitude sickness also slightly increase. To avoid getting altitude sickness you should drink 5-6 lt water per/day and food with high carbohydrates. Walking slowly and acclimatizing decreases the chances of getting altitude sickness. Focus on your breathing and maintain your walking pace.

Packing List Suggestions: Having a good backpack and necessary gear makes trekking easier. It becomes more important if you are trekking at higher elevations. If you are wondering about what to pack for trekking to the Annapurna region, then you can check our complete guide on Nepal Trekking Gear Checklist.
