HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trekking, Historical and Cultural Excursion
  • Trekking in the Shadow of the world highest peak, Mt Everest and Sherpa Land
  • Best Everest view from Gokyo Ri and Gokyo Lake
Gokyo Valley Trekking is a legendary trek that encompasses grand views of Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8511m), Makalu (8463m) and Cho Oyo (8021m) which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake.

We will also see icefall off the Ngozumpa Glacier, which is the longest glacier in Nepal, mountain lake scenery and many more countless memorable views. One of the most remarkable features is the view of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2922m) located in Khumbu region. This conventional trek truly is a blessing that offers the best of this region.

Gokyo Valley Trekking begins after a thirty five minute flight from Kathmandu landing at Lukla’s tiny airstrip. Then, the adventure really begins after following a trail along the bank of Dudh Koshi River and reaching Namche bazaar.

We will have rest days in the villages of Namche bazaar that will allow us to explore the region. Also at Namche we interact with the local Sherpas who are famous for mountain climbing. We acclimatize with these beautiful people and we stay at local lodges and trek into the heartland of their villages.

Everything is organized in conjunction with local Sherpa guides. Along the trek we will pass Buddhist monasteries with the views of Everest and other snow towering mountains getting closer by the day, which is very important. After trek to Gokyo Ri (5,483m), and having a close view of heart melting mountains we return at a leisurely pace back to Namche and Lukla for our flight back to Kathmandu.

Gokyo valley trekking is perhaps the most amazing trekking route, because, the trail follows closest to the Everest base camp. This is equally popular for the hospitality and the warmth offered by the local Sherpa people inhabiting this small mountain town.

Each stop in Gokyo Valley Trekking has its own charm and beauty. This trek truly highlights everything Khumbu and Everest have to offer and is an excellent trip for those seeking a wide range of views, nature and scenery during their expedition.

GOKYOOOOO !!!
The Gokyo Valley Trek was excellent, the local operator was responsible and accurate in the tour. I suggest this trek to anyone searching for separate tour from all the EBC trekkers and searching for a romantic get away.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
