Best season

Like with most of the other treks in Nepal, the best seasons for Gokyo Lakes Trek are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) considering weather, temperature and clear views. During those times, sky is clear and daytime temperature is warm. However, you can do this trek in the summer (monsoon) and winter seasons too if you prepare well accordingly to cope with the problematic weather conditions and extreme temperatures.


This trek is considered as a ‘moderate’ trek with maximum altitude of 5,360m at the summit of Gokyo Ri.  The summit of Gokyo Ri is at around the same altitude as Everest Base Camp (EBC). But it is considered less difficult than EBC as you won’t have to sleep at a high elevation. Additionally, the trek itself is not very demanding & does not require any kind of technical skills. However, a good cardiovascular fitness level with an ability to walk continuously for 4 to 5 hours a day can be very advantageous during the trek.
