I want tell you must visit this place and recommended this company.”
It is my first time trekking at a moderately difficult terrain and my guide - Anjan, concerned for me. He was very helpful and young man. Anjan show the great views and facts about of Gokyo valley and Everest region. To seeing the breathtaking image of my own eyes of Gokyo and also seeing close view of Mt. Everest and himalayan range.
The trek was refreshing, inspiring and lifelong memory for me. It is my advice to everyone to do treks in Nepal at least once because it is certainly worth it. Nepal Guide Treks provides me best of services and arrangements. I didn't worry about anything during trek and Anjan manage everything to me in the trek.”

Your accommodation status can be easily upgraded in Kathmandu without any problems. However, your accommodation during the trekking days will be arranged in comfort tea houses. All accommodation will be provided in single, double, triple or twin sharing as per your requirements. Attached toilets may not be available in all the tea houses. In such places, you will have to use the public toilet outside your rooms. Meals: Our organized package trip of Gokyo Lake Trek includes the cost of BB Plan in Kathmandu and all meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) during the entire trekking days. Wide varieties of food will be made available for you in the menu. Another thing to keep in mind is that we will take our dinner and breakfast in the same tea house that we spent the overnight. After breakfast, we pack our gear and continue our trek. En-route we will make a short stop for lunch before heading to the next destination. Physical Conditions and Experience Required: Gokyo Lake Trek is a moderate trek which is suitable for motivated trekkers with ability to trek for five to six hours a day. Gokyo Lake Trekking includes trekking in high altitudes, reaching up to 5000 meters above the sea level. A good level of physical fitness is highly recommended. Slow and steady will be highly beneficial in order to avoid unexpected altitude sickness during the entire Gokyo Lake Trek. Best Season for Gokyo Lake Trek: Spring (March, April, and May) and autumn (September, October, November) are the best times to trek. Around this time the weather is clear that allows trekkers to get the most out of what Gokyo valley and Everest region has to offer to its visitors. For trekkers who prefer trekking in a calmer environment with less crowds – December, January, and February is a good time for trekking around Gokyo. June, July, and August mark the monsoon season with heavy rainfall.
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.
