The Gokyo trek is one of the most popular treks in the Everest region. The Gokyo valley is located in the eastern part of Nepal.

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.

Join us on this trek and enjoy the Gokyo region. Please see the itinerary section for more details.

Review for another Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd tour
“Lion is an awesome, reliable company offering excellent service. We traveled as a group of 2 (both 27 years old) with a guide (Bishnu) provided by the agency. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and spoke English well. All permits and passes were taken care of by the agency; buses too. The route design was perfect, allowing us to acclimate before attempting to reach the top of Tsergo Ri. We made it to the top, the views were stunning, and it was the perfect challenge for us. Definitely one of my greatest accomplishments. A+”

Review for another Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd tour
“We had an unforgettable seven-day trek to Poon Hill and back around the Annapurna region, rigorous enough to be exciting and filled with absolutely breathtaking views, without being too challenging for beginners like we were. surya an excellent guide -- professional, extremely knowledgeable and dependable. Highly recommend the Poon Hill trek for beginners looking for a bit of steep climbing, rain forestry and of course views, and of course even more advanced trekkers who'd like a shorter four or five day jaunt. It's a well-trodden path and at night times you sleep in little village guesthouses along the way, cheap places with identical menus (but prices the rise the higher you climb) and clean beds. Don't forget to wake up early for the Poon Hill sunrise 6:30am. I won't forget it.

We had a great time at Poonhill. It was nice and easy booking. Very good service and a reasonable price. We will definitely use this company again Nepal Lion Tours and Treks ( P) LTD.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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 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. 

  • 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.

     

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
