HIGHLIGHTS
  • Best view of Everest from Gokyo Ri
  • Explore beautiful fifth and fourth Lakes
  • Visit historical Sherpa museum and Saturday market in Namche Bazaar
  • Enjoy the view from Renjo La pass
The Gokyo Valley trek begins from Lukla airport located in the Everest region, one of the most impressive airports in the Himalayas.

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.

Very scenic and easy to do trek
“We did Gokyo Ri trek in August. Being it monsoon season, our biggest concern was the weather. We were ensured it is doable during the rainy season as well and since we had all tickets booked and everything arranged we decided to go with it and it turned out to be the best choice! It is very beautiful in August, all the hills are green and its very warm even at the higher altitude, means less packing. And for me personally, the main advantage was that it is quiet on the trek during off-season. We still met few people, which was nice, but not too many, so you get to enjoy peace and quiet. It also gives you a better choice for accommodation. Visibility is quite good as most early morning the sky is clear and if it rains it only starts late in the afternoon and we never got wet on the trek as our guide was very knowledgeable about the weather and we had always reached our lodge by the time the rain started.
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.”

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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.
