We woke up at the normal start time of 6:30am for our normal cup of tea and washy washy before heading to breakfast. We set off from Machhermo for Gokyo expecting a long and painful day. We walked up and down for most of the day, taking in the last of the Milk river before it disappeared into the Gokyo lakes. Our walk took us four hours with many stops along the way to take in the spectacular views of the Gokyo lakes. We then arrived at Gokyo for a large lunch of soup, roti bread, fresh potato chips, vegetables and tuna. Some of us spent the afternoon relaxing at our lodge whilst others went out to explore or relax by the lake. We all returned by 3:30pm for our usual washy washy and our afternoon tea of Oreo’s and hot drinks.
- Can we go for a swim?
- Sunny and clear all day, cold and clear in the afternoon
