The small settlement of Gokyo lies at the foot of Gokyo Ri (peak), on the shores of the third of six sacred turquoise water lakes which make up the highest freshwater lake system in the world. As you reach the top of Gokyo Ri prepare to be spellbound by the 360 degree views of Mt Everest and the surrounding mountains. This is even more magical at sunrise and sunset.
