The color of the Gokyo Lake (4790m) is blue turquoise. It circles, some lodges and it looks as if the painter has made a wonderful creation there. You can also have a close panoramic view if there is a good weather.
From here the trail passes through some high Sherpa settlements with tremendous scenery, as you climb towards Gokyo Ri you have superb views down the valley to Kongtega and up towards Cho Oyu. The views at Gokyo are spectacular with the best being obtained after a short climb above the lake.
