The Gokyo trek is located in the Everest region (Sagarmatha National Park). During this tour you see the enchanting lakes of Gokyo and the Gokyo peak. It also gives you a fantastic view of Mt Everest, Ama Dablam, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Nilgiri and others. Along the path you can see the several Sherpa villages and the life style of the Sherpa’s in the Himalayas.
Experience in mountain hiking is not required, but a good basic fitness is needed. We stay in lodges along the trekking trail.
Notice: respectful travelling
We ask our guides to choose lodges as much as possible where solar energy is available, instead of lodges which require the use of firewood for cooking and heating. We pay our staff a worthy salary and a good insurance. We also help our staff to get solid trekking materials (coat, shoes).
We would like to encourage you to use water purification tablets or drops instead of mineral water in plastic bottles, so as not to leave waste on your way and to ask permission before photographing people or their possessions.
If required, we can cater for you to have a longer stay in Nepal before or after the trek, or travel to another place from Kathmandu.
The lodges along the trekkingroute are basic. Warm water is not always available or has to be paid extra. In the peak season a single room cannot be guaranteed.
Take information from your doctor or the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp (www.itg.be) concerning the vaccinations needed.
Our guides have sufficient knowledge about altitude sickness and they will assist you in this case if needed. They ensure that the necessary time for acclimatization is respected. Guests who leave the paths or do not follow the advice of the guide, do so at their own responsibility!
Please inform us about any health problems.
