Everest Gokyo Lake Trek Package

Everest Gokyo Lake Trek is one of the best alternatives to the most famous Everest Base Camp trek. The trek starts from Lukla that can be reaching after 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu following up the Dudh Koshi River towards Namche which is the gateway of Khumbu region. After reaching Namche after 2 days of trek from Lukla, we will leave the main route what goes Everest base camp and follow the route that takes us to village of Phortse Tenga and then to Gokyo Lake via other small villages called Dole and Machhermo. It is a 13 days well designed trekking itinerary with ample time for adjustment with opportunities to get pleasure from mountain panoramas. Climbing Gokyo Ri and the view of Mt. Everest, Mt. Cho Oyu and Lhotse and Makalu is the major highlight of this trek. Similarly, the dramatic panoramic view of the wonderful ice ridge between Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7922m) is another highlight of this trek.


This is a challenging trek but if you are able to walk 6 -7 hours a day with your small rucksack and with little bit of experience of trek, you can go for this trek. It is a tea house lodge trek. There are many small lodges, tea houses along the trekking route where we will stop for our meals and overnight stay during the trek.


The period of March to mid of May and beginning of September to end of November is the best time for this trek. We don’t recommend this trek for winter time since most of the lodges above the altitude may be closed because of the cold and similarly, the snow may make it difficult to trek higher than Tengboche.

    • PREPARE FOR TREK
    • When to go for trek in Nepal:
      Trekking in Nepal is possible to do at any time of the year but it depends on where you are planning to trek. There is always somewhere to go and something to do in Nepal, whatever the weather

      Autumn season from September to November when the monsoon ends and days become crystal clear. This is the real feature of the autumn and winter months. The mornings and especially the evenings can feel particularly brisk, but in sunshine the conditions are ideal for trekking.

      Trekking during the winter Season from December to February is ideal for trekking at lower elevations, generally below 3000 meters because this season is noted for occasional snowfall at higher elevations. You must be careful planning trek with high passes for this period because the high passes and ridges are may be blocked with snow and footpaths impassable.

      Spring season is the pre-monsoon period that extends from March to end of the May when the days can become hazy, with the distance view obscured, and clouds are a common features if the afternoons and the both days and nights are getting warmer. The real treat in the Spring months are the flowers, especially the rhododendrons.

      ummer Season (June to August): Summer months really continue up to mid-September making travel wet and warm. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. During this season, you can trek in the rain-shadow (places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains) areas north of the Himalaya like Mustang and Dolpo.

    • EXPERIENCE AND FITNESS FOR TREK IN NEPAL
    • If you really want to enjoy tour trekking holiday in Nepal, get fit before the trek not on the trek. Arriving in Nepal out of shape having taken no exercise for months, possibly years, is asking for trouble. Nepal, like like in general, is full of ups and downs. Run walk, swim, bike, do circuits, whatever but exercise before you to. You don’t need to be marathon-fit, but you will enjoy it more if your legs have reasonable muscle tone.

    • CLOTHING AND BOOTS FOR TREK:
    • Clothing:
      For trekking in Nepal you don’t need a lot of specialist equipment, indeed, most porters wear little more than a cotton shirt and trousers. But for Westerners the choice is wider. Light cotton trousers or loose skirt o shorts, with a t-shits and a pair or running shoes or lightweight boots is the norm on most treks. In the morning and early evening this might be supplemented by a fleece sweater and pants, or perhaps a light down jacket or vest. It’s usually only on the higher treks or between November and January that wool shirts and thermal underwear become necessary. Unless it is overcast or windy, the day is usually warm, but the early mornings and the evenings can be very cold so, unless you want to retire early to your sleeping bag, take warm clothing, a down parka, gloves and wool hat.

      Boots:
      If you have favorite pair of comfortable walking boots, stick with them. If you are looking for a pair for first time, ask yourself the following: will I be going above the snowline, or on very rough and rocky terrain? A specialist retailer should be able to advise you on the most suitable boot once he know your plan. Normally fabric upper boots, although generally less durable or waterproof than leather boots, are ideal for most trekking.

    • TREKKING EQUIPMENTS:
    • You don't need special equipments to go to trek in the most of the regions of Nepal. A comfortable hiking boot, a sleeping bag and a few clothes as per the travelling season are the basic things you need. It is best to travel light. Please note that most of the equipments we need for trek in Nepal is possible to buy or hire in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

    • TREKKING PERMITS, NATIONAL PARK ENTRY FEE AND TIMS CARD:
    • Most of the treks in Nepal requires permits/ conservation area entry tickets. When you book your trek with us, all the necessary trekking permits will be arranged from our team.

    • RESCUE INSURANCE:
    • If you are coming for short and easy trek, you can travel with normal regular insurance but if you are planning for trekking in high passes/ remote area you must check if your insurance covers trekking activities and the conditions or not. It would be very costly to pay a helicopter rescue at 5000 meters.
    • Package cost always depends on the number of people travelling in your group, standard of the hotels you need, the mode of transportations you choose as (travelling by private car, tourist bus, plane, 4WD) and your travelling date (High season, Low season) etc. Please click on next tab (INQUIRY/ BOOKING) and send us the details as mentioned above.
