Description of Gokyo Everest trek in Nepal

The highest mountain on earth needs no introduction however the lake district and valley communities of Gokyo in Sagarmatha National Park is an area around Everest that’s definitely worth getting better acquainted with on an eighteen day trekking holiday in Nepal.

From the drama of the Himalayas to cultural insight amongst traditional stone-built houses set on the shores of the lakes, a Gokyo Everest trek places this area of Nepal firmly on the map and it’s easy to see why this is one of the region’s best-loved locations for trekking.

Just west of Everest Base Camp the Gokyo Valley extends across sublime alpine pastures to provide trekkers with wonderfully reflective images of Himalayan Mountains captured in the glass clear waters of the Gokyo lakes.

One of the most spectacular views appears from the top of Gokyo-Ri Peak at over 5000 metres with the shimmering Ngozumpa Glacier and peaks topping 8000 metres, including Everest, Cho-Oyu, Everest, Lhotes and Makalu, providing unforgettable scenes on a lesser-trekked trail to Base Camp.

Alongside the magnificent mountains and glaciers you’ll also find an array of animals, birds and alpine trees with everything from golden eagles and snow pigeons to musk deer and Himalayan Thar making the most of blue pines, silver firs and some of Nepal's most gratifying landscapes.

I loved the trek and am so glad I did it. I would also highly recommend the company. The organisers in Kathmandu were really welcoming, I had a great guide (Ale) who went out of his way to be helpful, all of the lodges had a nice atmosphere, lovely staff and good food. Great memories. Read full review

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

Our guide will give a briefing about Responsible Tourism and how to best minimize the impact on nature, for example: Dispose of all waste in a rubbish pit, purify drinking water, proper litter removal, using kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood, use of local tea houses/ local camping sites.

Provide information on how to preserve the environment, for examples: Do not litter everywhere, dispose of rubish in proper places like rubbish boxes, establish fire pits in camping treks/tours, if possible provide food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to Porters to bring back non disposable things by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams, etc.

On this tour we stay with local tea houses/ lodges, operated by local communities in the hilly regions which minimize impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, and managing garbage properly.

People

Tourism helps to generate income for the local community. For example: By purchasing local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities etc.
