Get here early, climb one of the ridgelines, visit the medical centre or just relax in the sunshine amongst the yaks in Macchermo! The best pace on the Gokyo trail to spend the day before the final ascent! Staying here should leave you feeling strong for the ascent of Gokyo Ri/Renjo La in the coming days.

Spent two days in Macchhermo acclimatizing on our way to Gyoko. It is a lovely little village with a medical center. The two doctors that where there on my visit where lovely and very helpful and we where able to check on oxygen levels which was very interesting.

A compact mountain settlement where an afternoon can be well spent at the Machermo Sherpa Rescue Post learning about AMS ( acute mountain sickness). Run by vollenteers from the UK. Also nice walks up the valley to the waterfall at its head.
