- 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
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.
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?
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.
