Trekking into the Gokyo Valley and it’s surrounding lakes is an exhilarating experience. It’s the ideal way to explore Gokyo located at the base of the Gokyo Ri. Gokyo is a beautiful valley with majestic high mountains and blue lakes close to the base camp of Mt. Cho Oyu (8216m).

The trek provides a great opportunity to witness some of the tallest snow-capped peaks of the world including Mt. Everest. The trekking trail of the Everest region itself is the most popular trekking trail in the world passing over remote villages, lush green forests, high mountain settlements, pristine lakes and icy mountain rivers.

The trek initially starts after taking a trans-Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Lukla then trek to Phakding. The following days are spent hiking towards Namche Bazaar then to the Gokyo Valley and exploring around Gokyo’s blue lakes. Afterwards, re-trace the route back to Lukla and fly to Kathmandu.

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.
