The moment of truth has arrived, from this moment the altitude takes
the protagonism and the shade of the evil of height lurks in every effort and for
course in every meter that we ascend. The quiet pace and the
rest will be the best allies to face these days.

This day can be tackled in different ways, from my point of view
view and experience acquired I think this is what we propose is a good organization of the day. The route presents two
parts, first the climb to the small village of Gokyo. There we go to
stay overnight and it is another stage of trekking. This day despite the height
It will not take us more than three hours. And yes we get up early, we can get there
about 12 hours to the town.







Rest a bit, while we eat something and
we drink tea. We will complete the day with the climb to the top of Gokyo Ri (5330m).
It is an important effort but we must have several considerations. If he
day allows it for the weather is very interesting to make the ascent of
this form. We will enjoy good temperature to climb and the views in between
days are awesome. This is attested by the photos.



The other option is to get to Gokyo and rest. The next morning
get up about 4-5 in the morning and do the ascension in the first hour to
Get to the top with the sunrise. The problem with this option is found in
the low temperatures that there are at night. Therefore, the cold and the wind are
bad allies for the rise. To this we will add the little rest in the early morning
so much. And we can not forget that we still have to continue with the next
stage towards Thagnang. So if the body and legs do not allow it, I think
that the best option is the first proposal.








The route starts with a good climb to save a small hill. Since
here constant ascension, approximately one hour, we will pass through the small village of Phangga and from
this moment the lodges are reduced considerably and we have to stock up
of drink and enough food until you get to Gokyo.










In the ascent, the passage through three beautiful lakes of height stands out. The phase
It has a very special charm and the second part of the climb is much more
bearable The characteristic is that we almost reach a few meters from
Gokyo we do not see the hill where we are going to climb.









All this climb to the lakes runs next to the river Dudh, once
After Phangga, we left in the direction of the lakes.



From this day the lodges and amenities are reduced
considerably, therefore we must plan the day without having the
sale of water or food.

Another important element for advice is that as of this moment
we have to change the sunglasses, for some high mountain, with factor of
four protection. Solar radiation is already noticeable and even bothers the view
without adequate protection.










The lodge where we have spent the night is not too comfortable, the bathrooms dirty and poorly maintained. Our room is located in a continuous construction where the cold rages at night and there is a lot of noise throughout the night. The truth is that this has not been one of the best lodges.

    Magnífic recorregut entre aquestos dos llocs del trekking.L'espectacle dels tres llacs de Gokyo és inoblidable així com el Gokyo Ri amb el Cho Oyu al fons. Ja sempre a sobre del quatre mil metres.
    Etapa exigent, però amb una bona recompensa.
