Reviews for Gokyo Everest trek in Nepal


review 8 Jun 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Seeing the sun rise behind Everest at the top of Kalapathar.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I would recommend going to Gokyo as well as Kalapathar as it's much quieter with very few of the big groups going to Everest Base Camp. Also, because my guide was flexible, we managed to avoid the groups quite a lot of the time even on the EBC route. The views from Gokyo Ri were also stunning.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I feel that it benefited local people. I was also happy to see that the company organised a rescue team following the earthquakes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

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. There were no hidden extras and a generous allowance for food and tea (I drank lots of tea) so I paid for very little while I was there. Great memories.
