  • Witnessing the longest glacier of Nepal, Gokyo Lake & Famous View Points GokyoRi
The main highlights of Everest Kalapathar Gokyo Ri Trek is not only witnessing the longest glacier of Nepal, the "Ngojuma Glacier" and Pristine Lakes of Gokyo but also hiking up to the famous viewpoints Gokyo-Ri from where the following 4 eight thousand meter peaks can clearly be seen: Mount Everest, Mount Makalu, Mount Cho Oyu, and Mount Lhotse. Another highlight is advancing over the Cho La pass, proceeding towards Everest Base Camp and exploring the unique and hardship rewarding sherpa culture.

This Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri Trek follows the Dudh Kosi river and has all of the benefits of the Everest Base Camp trek but with fewer visitors. You will get many moments alone with mother nature, at her fantastic best. Staggering mountain panoramas from the pinnacle viewpoint atop Gokyo Ri are the climax of the journey. Gokyo Ri is probably THE best vantage point in the Himalayas below 6000 meters.

Our professional mountain guide and staff will handle everything, understanding your interests, needs and above all safety along the way. We will of course only ascend slowly making sure that we avoid altitude sickness and acclimatize per the recommendations.

If you're looking for adventure and great trek, this Gokyo and Everest Base Camp trek is surely one of the best in Nepal!

Realising a dream
“Excellent round trip taking you up a beautiful, but far less busy valley. Challenges abound with Gokyo Ri, Chola Pass, Kala Pathan to add to base camp.”

All plans are basis for changes - the journey is well rewarding
“Due to weather conditions, we had to start the trip not as planned, adding few days for the original schedule (all flights to Lukla were canceled); in addition, Chola pass was closed for few days, so we had to change our plans and do only the EBC part. we met also other tourists which were waiting for a week in Namche bazzar for the weather to get better, but eventually, had to change their plans as well. the trek was a great experience and my best advice is to come in October onward and not to count on the statistics on September.”

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?

    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.

  • 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.
