If one goes up the Dudh kosi River, the (milky river) one comes to the sacred lakes of Gokyo. Slightly less popular than the more important trek to Everest base camp, this route offers equally spectacular views, but is less crowded. The final destination of the trek is the village of Gokyo (4,750 meters) by the bank of the third and also biggest lake. Lakes called tsho in the Sherpa dialect have a deep religious meaning for booth Buddhist and Hindus, even if they attract fewer pilgrims than Gosainkund.
