Join us on this 15-day guided trek to the Gokyo Valley that is is popular as an alternative to the Everest Base Camp trek. We will pick you up upon arrival in Kathmandu and drive you to your hotel. Enjoy a guided sightseeing tour of Kathmandu city on the second day of the trip.

Time to head to the mountains. We will drive you to the airport for a flight to Lukla. Your journey begins now. Take the Everest Base Camp trail and trek to Phakding followed by Namche Bazaar, the centre of trade and commerce in the Khumbu region.

Leave the EBC trail behind and head for Phortse Thenga followed by Machherma after which you reach Gokyo, the village of six sacred lakes located on a moraine close to the Ngozumpa Glacier. Explore the Gokyo area before heading to Gokyo Ri, a 5,357m high peak in the Khumbu region. See Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cholatse and Taboche, among other mountains.

Descend to Lukla following the same route. This spectacular, two-week climb takes you to an altitude almost as high as that of Everest Base Camp and offers jaw-dropping views of the Himalayas. However, the trail to Gokyo is less crowded and quieter with traditional Sherpa villages serving local meals to legions of hungry trekkers. The trail follows the Dudh Kosi River to its source - a series of emerald green lakes.

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.
