Tranquil hamlet belongs to the turquoise blue colored lake is the dream destination of every person. Everest Gokyo Lake Trekking thus endows it properly for the worldwide tourists. By passing through the bank of the famous Gokyo Lake i.e. Dudhpokhari and at the Gokyo Ri foothill towards the adjacent of Renjola Pass and on Chola Pass, you will find a magnificent and tranquil Gokyo valley. This is a romantic and a scenic destination highlighting the entire Khumbu trek in Nepal. If you enjoy the best scenic views of the Mountain Everest, along with its section in Tibet, you should consider Everest Gokyo Lake as the ideal trekking choice.

Starting from Lukla to the Namche Bazaar, you will find almost similar type of trail and acclimatization, as you may expect from Everest Base Camp trekking. Once you trek from Kyangjuma, your trail leaves Tengboche to reach at Machhermo. Until Dole, you will get usual views of Cholatse and Amadablam mountains. However, after reaching to Dole, you will get close view of Cholatse, while distant view of Choyou Mountain. Here, you will find total six outstanding lakes associated with the Gokyo Lake System, especially the Dudh Koshi River that you will find after you cross the nearby beautiful bridge.

There are two trails and our guide will choose the best option for us to follow. There is a chorten on the ridge top at 3973 m which descends from Mt. Khumbila (5761 m). We visit Mongla, the birthplace of the re-incarnated Lama of Rongbuk Monastery of Tibet who is believed to have introduced Buddhism in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The trail descends in a series of steep switchbacks down a sandy slope to the Dudh Koshi. We stay overnight in Phortse Tanga, near the river.

We then descend to the riverbank before climbing onto the terminal moraine of the Ngozumpa Glacier on a steep trail. Upon crossing an iron bridge over a stream, the trail levels out as it follows the valley past the first lake, known as Longpongo, at 4690 m. At this juncture, we get a chance to observe lama footprints on a stone. At the sight of the second lake, Taboche Tsho, we become mesmerized by the shimmering turquoise blue sheet of water sparkling in the sun.
