Annapurna Circuit
“Unfortunately, due to weather conditions our trip to Gokyo Lake was canceled. Mr Prakash arranged in very short notice a new trek to Annapurna Circuit. In this way, we didn't lose too much time to still enjoy beautiful Nepal. Service provided by Nepal Guide Treks & Expedition was excellent. Everything was arranged nicely. No comments at all. Especially I want to thank our guide (Krishna Malla) and our porters (Birendra Malla and Tilak Malla) being such professional, nice, funny and friendly guys who helped us with everything during our trek.”

Great Trekking Experience in Gokyo Lake Trek
“We are direct flight from Thailand to Nepal. We pick up by hotel representative. then our trekking organized i.e. Nepal Guide Treks. We met Mr. Prakash Devkota(owner of Nepal Guide Treks), he told us about everything of Gokyo lake trek and also met with our guide, Krishna. We had a fantastic time on our trek to Gokyo lake. That was awesome trekking experience I ever had. From that height around 5000 m, we saw view of Mount Everest and other snow capped mountain. When he mentioned that was perfect time to visit the Gokyo lake and view of surround was stunning. Next day, we fly to the Lukla then we trek 5-6 hrs every day with various landscapes up to Gokyo Ri above 5340 meters sea level. When we saw sunrise view from Gokyo Ri, that was magnificent.Our guide and porter was cheerful and always smiling face. Everything went according to our itinerary. Without any complain in service provided to us by Nepal Guide treks. Thanks, NGT having a great teams and staff doing very well to us during trekking.”

Highly Recommend Trip: Gokyo Lake Trek
“Gokyo Lake Trek, One of the best treks I ever done. That was amazing and awesome trekking experience for me and also trekking above 5000 m that was the first time. I already trekking around in my home town Los angles area but not that much. The trek was done right at the first week of April and the weather was amazing.
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.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.


  • 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 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 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.
