Gokyo Valley Trek
1350

Overview

Gokyo valley trekking is one of the very well-known and unique adventurous trekking routes of Nepal. It is one of country’s most adventurous and exploratory trek.

Gokyo valley trekking presents to you an extraordinary and once in a lifetime experience to witness the beauty of the world’s tallest and prettiest mountains, exquisite glaciers, including Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest glacier in the whole Himalayas and second largest in the world. It is possible to trek on the Gokyo valley throughout the year, but the best time to trek are the periods from March to May and September to December.

The beginning of this trek commences with a 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This journey takes you through the magnificent valleys of Dudh Koshi, rich in atypical biodiversity, century’s old Buddhist monasteries, and traditional Sherpa villages and finally brings you to the footsteps of the renowned Namche Bazaar, the epitome of Sherpa civilization, and a gateway to classic Everest route. Also, it offers the picturesque and close-up views of Mt. Everest (8,848m) and other equally splendid peaks like Ama Dablam (6,812m), Thamserku (6,623m), Lhotse (8,516m) and Nuptse (7,861m), after passing two nights at Namche.

After exploring and adapting to high altitude at Namche, we move onward to Dole, Machheremo, Luza and Gokyo, our ultimate target. After this, we climb the Gokyo Ri, which stands 5,357 m tall, to witness the spectacular sunrise at the Himalaya. Subsequently, two and half hour walk later, the view from the ridge above the Gokyo peak is incredible. Four peaks which stand taller than 8000m are visible from Gokyo Ri, including glorious Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, and Makalu, and the beautiful emerald Gokyo lake, along with other smaller mountains. The view of Everest from Gokyo Ri is more stunning than from Kalapathar.The sight of the terrific ice ridge between the Ghyangchung Kang (7925m) and Cho Oyu (8201m) is one the highlight as seen by Khumbu. You can extend the trek by going over the Chola pass to Everest base camp, for more remarkable mountaineering adventures to recall.

  1. Gokyo Valley Trek
    I was recommended to Nepal Eco tours and Chhatra from a friend who was living in Nepal for 2 years. From the moment we walked into Chhatra’s office until our Departure from Kathmandu we had the most amazing experience and the whole team looked after us so well! We were considering doing the Langtang trek but after speaking to Chhatra we decided to do the trek to Gokyo Ri. It was honestly the best experience of my life , I can’t reccomend others to do this trek enough! From start to finish the scenery was so spectacular along the way and by far the best view in Nepal at the end of the trek at the top of Gokyo Ri! Our guide walked with us at our own pace and always made sure we were healthy enough to keep going right to the end. If you’re only considering doing the EBC trek I would suggest to think about either adding on Gokyo Ri or switching to this trek. The path is less crowded and the views are much more rewarding! Don’t even hestitate to book any tours through Nepal Eco tours , you will have zero regrets and friends for life!!!

There is something you spend your money on throughout the trek other than the alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, Hot shower on the trek, Tipping and shop round on the trek. On the other hand Kathmandu is a shopper’s paradise.. Frequently purchased items include hand-woven Tibetan carpets, hand knit woollen goods, hats, outdoor clothing and equipment, cashmere clothing, shawls, pashminas, Buddhist memorabilia, carved masks, puppets, wood carvings and jewellery etc. we suggest you to bring $200-$350 US dollar. You can only buy Nepalese Rupees in Nepal. There are ATM’s in Kathmandu where you can withdraw Nepalese Rupees Credit cards can be used to purchase expensive items but there will be an additional charge for this service.

Are Nepal Eco Adventure guides/porters insured?

Yes our company trekking staff including guides, porters, cooks, Sherpas all of them are insured. we have bought insurance for all our staff from Neco Insurance. Their insurance cover up to $5000 USD.

How much should I tip to my guide and porter?

Tips do not form any part of thewages of guides,porters and other trekking crews. but they are expected by the porters, guide, Sherpa and cook. it is a nice way of saying thank-you to someone who will play a large part in your trekking experience and who will prove invaluable to you on this trip. Our porters and guides will be paid more than working for other big tour and trek companies. we suggest to tip 10-20% of total trip cost. This amount must be given in Nepalese rupee. The porters live in small hill villages several days walking from the nearest bank or money changer. I will suggest you to be generous about tipping job they have done for you.
