The Gokyo Lake Trek is an alternative to the traditional Everest Base Camp treks while still providing the trekker with plenty of stunning views of Everest as well as overnight stays in the iconic town of Namche Bazaar, gateway to the Khumbu Region. The route to the Gokyo Lakes is far less buzy but still affords the trekker with an insight into local village life, impressive views of icy rivers and stony, glacier debris, snow-capped mountains, and of course the dazzling turquoise waters of Gokyo Lakes themselves. As a comparaison, the popular Anapurna Circuit trek receives over 100,000 people per year and the Everest Base Camp around 25 000 people. The Gokyo Trek receives just around 1,000 people per year.
