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.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
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 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.
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.
