Everest Gokyo Trekking is an ultimate trekking package to explore the massive mountain peaks, glaciers and the beautiful lakes of the Everest Region. The beauty of Himalayas is spell-bounding. Once you enter in this region you will be stunned with the view of the Great Himalayas – also known as the crown of the world. Everest Gokyo trekking can be the best option for the trekkers who can conquer the high altitudes, walk over the rough trials and can handle the fairy cold climate which exists almost every day. The trial not only offers you the natural beauty but also the traditional and biological brilliance.

The trip begins with a small-plane flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and over the course of 12-days includes a view of the biggest glacier in Nepal, several walks through beautiful rhododendron forests, spectacular views of the stunning Gokyo valley and its jewel-like lakes, and a full-day spent at Namche Bazaar where we can enjoy the views and acclimatize. Throughout the trek, we will also pass through several villages where you can catch a glimpse of the lives, culture and traditions of the people living in these remote mountain lands.

Ganesh from the local operator organized a Gokyo-EBC Trek for me. As I was trekking alone, I could change my program anytime. I could count on him all the time, so I managed to make a great trek (my 9th in Nepal!). My guide Shiva... Read more

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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • 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.
