More that a dozen snow-covered mountain peaks are visible from Gokyo peak (Gokyo Ri) including several 8,000+ meter peaks such as Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Kanchaenjunga and Cho Oyu. You also get wonderful views of Ngozumpa glacier - the largest glacier in Nepal. At the base of Gokyo Ri is a small hamlet made up of a few stone houses which is also one of the highest settlements in the world. From Gokyo Ri we can get great views of the lakes in the area, especially the emerald Gokyo lake.
Trekking around Gokyo valley is considered a traditional trek that offers magnificent views of the mountain peaks. The image of this region is associated with the soaring views of the most popular mountains in Nepal such as Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri above Gokyo Lake. One of the most remarkable views is of the tremendous ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung (2,922m) located in the Khumbu region.

The Twin Otter Plane only the mode of transport to and from Lukla on this tour, Sometimes, flights to and from Lukla may be cancelled due to mountain weather conditions as the weather in mountain is really unpredictable so, we have kept one extra day in the end of the tour on our tour itinerary to use in the case of flight delay or cancel to or from Lukla so, if the flights cancel for 2 or more days, we will charter a helicopter to ensure you are on scheduled flight to your home or other destination.

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.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?
We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
