To arrive at Gokyo Valley we will follow the Dudh Kosi River from the Sherpa villages of Namche Bazaar and Khumjung. The Gokyo trek is not as frequented as the popular Everest Base Camp trek giving more pristine nature and great trekking trails. This trek is full of highlights but a special one will be the day of hiking up Gokyo Ri at an altitude of 5360m. Gokyo Ri probably provides the best viewpoint, compared with all other treks in Nepal. You will be able to get fantastic views of the vast Ngozumpa Glacier and enjoy a panoramic view of four of the world's highest peaks above 8,000m, namely Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Cho Oyu and Mt. Makalu. You will also be able to get amazing views of Gokyo village itself and its surrounding emerald green lakes.
We will go via Renjo la pass return to Namche Bazaar via the Sherpa villages of Thame
The Gokyo valley trek is considered a typical trek and is suitable for everyone. If you are reasonably fit and have a sense of adventure you will definitely find this trek a good pick.
The itinerary is designed on a way so that we will acclimatize gradually so as to avoid all kinds of altitude sickness. During the trek we will be staying at guesthouses and tea houses for the night.
Our professional mountain guide and porters will take care of you on this great adventure.
I could not recommend this trek enough, it offers absolutely stunning views and Gokyo Ri is quite easy to do even being at a very high altitude. And don't be put off by monsoon rains.”

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.
