Because you will be walking at a high altitude virtually identical to Everest Base Camp, we will spend a day at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes. From here, you will start to glimpse views of the snow-capped Mount Everest, Ama Dablam, and other mountains. You will now go from Namche Bazar to Phortse Village, Machhermo, and Gokyo.

Additionally, you will hike to the fifth lake from Gokyo Valley's Gokyo Ri in the early morning hours before traveling from Gokyo to Dole, Namche Bazar, and Lukla to catch a flight back to Kathmandu. As a result, it is the complete 13-day itinerary for the Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Trek.

What to anticipate while trekking the Gokyo Lakes

Going on a trek to the Gokyo Lakes is a lot of fun and beautiful. The mountains allow you to only experience their untamed beauty with your eyes as you go closer to them. At 4,700 meters above sea level, there are six main water sources that make up these lakes. The Gokyo Lakes have the world's purest water systems. They come from a special source. They are important hydrological resources because they provide ongoing fresh water.

Beautiful turquoise Gokyo Lakes are created by a combination of sources, including water flow from the Ngozumpa glacier, a stream that rises close to the Renjo La pass in the north-west, and the Ngozumpa glacier in the east.

The three most spectacular ones, Longponga Tso, Taujung Tso, and Gokyo Tso, will be examined in depth. One of the most breathtaking lakes treks in Nepal, the rich jewel hue of the lovely lakes flowing in an alpine mist or the mystical projection of the Ngozumpa glacier, shimmering over the bottom of the lakes when the breeze dies, is unlike anything else in the universe in terms of grandeur.

How to Get Ready For Gokyo Valley Trek?

In the Nepali Everest region, the walk to the Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri takes 13 days. Trekking here is always exciting and frequently perilous. Prior to beginning a walk, you must make good physical and mental preparation. Your fitness regimen should begin at least six weeks prior to your Gokyo Lakes Trek, according to Base Camp Trip experts. This will give you enough time to build up your general stamina and focus on specific leg muscular endurance.

The best advice is to hike in the mountains as frequently as possible; short-distance backpacking hikes are the best way to get ready. Regularly visiting the gym has additional advantages for you.

Plan to work out at the gym, and concentrate your training on the thighs and ankles. Cardiovascular exercise is another advantageous approach to preparing for your hike, and swimming is a great way to stretch your muscles and keep in shape. Exercise programs like body pump, yoga, and aerobics are all excellent choices for preparing your body, especially those that emphasize flexibility, posture, and core strength.

You must be psychologically healthy beforehand because we cannot mentally prepare all at once. The finest way to exercise your mind is to do yoga in the morning. The Gokyo Lakes Trek is a picturesque and lovely nature walk; you'll experience mental calmness while on it.
