A spectacular Himalayan experience for adventure seekers, the Everest - Gokyo Lake is a renowned trek in the upper reaches of the Khumbu Valley. The Gokyo Lake trek is famous for the beautiful Himalayan scenery it offers, including many spectacular Himalayan giants overlooking the trekking trail and the biggest glaciers of Nepal, one of which is the Gokyo lake itself. The trek offers amazing views of Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain peak in the world. This trekking trail is an alternative to the standard Everest Base Camp Trek. One highlight of this trek is the incredible view of the ice ridge between Mt. Cho Oyu and Gyachung.

The trekking trail has you walking through the natural habitat of Himalayan wildlife. Sagarmatha National Park, listed as a world heritage site, encompasses almost the entire Everest region, offers spectacular views of the high mountains, and is home to several different species of rare Himalayan flora and fauna, including musk deer, mountain goats, colorful pheasant, monal, and danfe - the national bird of Nepal. Endangered Himalayan species such as the beautiful red panda and the elusive snow leopard are also found here. Pine and birch trees are common, as well as colorful rhododendron flowers welcoming you with their bright red hue.

Several Buddhist monasteries are located in the lower Khumbu region. These add a religious and cultural nugget to your Himalayan adventure. During the trek, you’ll get to visit the land of the Sherpa, where you’ll find their hospitality as grand as the mountains themselves.

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.
