HIGHLIGHTS
  • Gokyo Lake
  • Panoramic view from Gokyo Ri
  • Namche Bazaar and other popular villages
Trekking around the Gokyo valley offers wonderful views of the mountain peaks and the Ngozumpa Glacier- one of the largest in the world. This trek guarantees the most remarkable views of some of the infamous “eight-thousanders” including Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Lhotse Shar and Makalu, which are clearly visible from Gokyo Ri (5360m.) Undoubtedly, one of the most unforgettable sights on this trip will be the view of the spectacular ice point between Cho Oyu (8201m) and Gyachung Kang (7952m) in the Khumbu region.

After a thrilling flight to Tenzing/Hillary airport at Lukla, the adventure really begins. We begin the climb passing Buddhist monasteries and memorials that stand amongst the most captivating backdrops you will have ever seen. You will be seduced by snow capped mountains enveloping tranquil, traditional Sherpa villages and celebrate as you reach altitudes of over 5000m. The trek aspires to reach Gokyo Ri and the glistening waters of the Gokyo Lakes, the world’s highest fresh water lake system.

“As our guides said, the first time you come to Nepal it's for the mountains, the next time you come it's for the people. The trek itself was amazing - mountain views, huge vistas, helicopter flights. The accommodations and food were all nice as well, and we were treated with a lot of hospitality.

However, what truly made the trip memorable were our two guides Rishi and Santosh. These guys took their time to get to know all of the members of our large 27 student group personally and were always able to crack a joke to lighten the mood. They supported us on the mountain and spent their free time with us talking/playing cards back at the tea houses. We had conversations every night and they taught us A LOT about the Nepalese culture and traditions and made sure that we always felt comfortable in their country. When we had a free day in Kathmandu after the trek they graciously spent their free time giving us a bike tour around Kathmandu, a great way to see the city. They started the trip as two guides to me, but really left the trip as two friends. I will definitely be visiting Nepal and these guys again in the future.”

“You will not regret Mosaic adventure. The guides are well equipped and knowledgeable about the area, the culture, and what you should be doing in the area. I struggled one day with a little sicknesss. My guides Rishi and Santosh were INCREDIBLE in taking care of me and making sure I was healthy enough to continue on the once in a lifetime journey. If you travel to Nepal, travel Mosaic!”

“The trip was one of the most amazing things I've ever done in my life. I travelled to Nepal alone but met some fantastic people along the way. The sights of the mountains were spectacular and really have to be seen first hand to be believed. It wasn't easy and I definitely struggled on a few days but that's what makes my memories greater.”

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
