Trek to the top of Gokyo Ri for an expansive view of Cho Oyu, Mount Everest, Lhotse and Makalu, among others. You'll also see five glacial lakes of the region: Longpongo, Taboche Tsho, Gokyo Cho, Thonak Tsho and Ngozuma Tsho.
One of the highlights of the trek is also the spectacular view from ice point between Cho Oyu and Gyachung.
Everest Gokyo trek is best done from March to May and September to December. However, you can book trek across the year, depending on your travel schedule.
Recibimos una atencin por parte de la empresa excelente, desde el primer momento de contactar con su gerente Gokul hasta nuestra vuelta a Espaa, ademas habla un correcto espaol esto nos facilito mucho la comunicacin y organizacin de nuestro viaje.

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.
