After the violent earthquakes which struck Nepal, it is not advised to travel in this country in the heart of the Himalayas. On their behalf, the Nepalese people are doing everything to relaunch tourism. The walks on the different mountains, with the famous Mount Everest in the background, are the things which appeal most. But for less experienced trekkers, there are other routes available which are more accessible.
Nepal is a paradise for those who love wide open spaces and trekking. The one to the Gokyo Lakes is, for me, one of the most beautiful you can find in this country, much wilder than the over crowded trek to the Everest base camp. The view from Gokyo Ri is unforgettable: an emerald lake surrounded by the world's highest peaks, in a 360° panorama.
