Join this trek for some of the most stunning views of the Himalayas as we take you past beautiful valleys and deep gorges, majestic glaciers and glacial rivers and villages that have maintained ancient traditions and cultures since ages.
Start with cultural and historical sites in Kathmandu Valley, before heading to the immensely beautiful Gokyo Valley. The trek starts with a scenic flight over rolling hills and flowing rivers and you're treated to unparalleled views of the lofty Himalayas. Next up is a trek through old-world settlements to the Namche Bazaar. Prayer flags, prayer wheels and Mani stones, rhododendron forests, ancient monasteries and suspension bridges are just some of the things that keep you company on this trek.
Namche Bazaar is a bustling hub in the Khumbu region, the ideal place for acclimatization. Trekking continues to a higher altitude towards the ancient monasteries in Tengboche and Dingboche before we move on to the iconic Everest Base Camp.
Trekkers then return to Lobuche before going for Thangan through the challenging Cho La Pass. Witness marvelous mountain scenery from the pass, discover a unique culture and ancient tradition of the Sherpa community before ending your trek in the beautiful city of Kathmandu.
The formidable Cho La Pass (5,420m), the largest glacier of Ngozumba and Gokyo village (one of the highest settlements in the world) are some of the strong reasons to join this trek.
An added value that the organization consists entirely of its own people from there and that, for example, they do not exploit the carriers! A fair reliable local organization that provides a very qualitative and personal service!
organizational: completely successful!
The communication in advance, pick me up at the airport and EVERYTHING in between until the drop me back at the airport for the return trip: everything was arranged!
By banal throat infection after the peak ascent yet with heli to hospital ... where people from Trekking Planner were there to assist me, Dipak came to visit me personally and check if everything went well ... 3 days later I was in Pokhara enjoy (with antibiotics)! Good insurance is extremely important! Hint: European assistance 'world sport'.
The trekking & Peak climb: A dream trip that has come true !!
The guide (Gyeljan) and the wearer (Nuri) did everything to make it an unforgettable journey; two fanatic people! If necessary, adjustments could be made on site at all times.
Bungee and Pokhara: completely successful!
The few extra days planned with Dipak on site.
In Pokhara I was welcomed and dropped off at a very pleasant hotel close to Phewa Lake.”
From the first moment when I arrived in Nepal there was always someone taking care of me. I was picked up at the airport, bus stations and so on. During the sightseeing tours in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan I had really nice guides who made this time unforgettable for me. After one week of traveling in Nepal I ve started a trekking tour from Lukla to the Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Valley including the Cho La Pass. This tour was also perfectly organized and I had the best guide I could imagine. We were always laughing and we had a lot of fun. Most evenings we spent together in the tea houses and it was great to listen to his experience in the mountains.
At the end I think my trip to Nepal could not have been better and I m really thankful to Dipak and his team. If you are thinking about a trip to Nepal and you need some help with the organization I can warmly recommend TREKKING PLANER.”

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.
