Taking the Everest Gokyo trek is a fantastic way to experience the beauty of Mount Everest. But before you go, you need to know the key facts to get the most out of your experience. Here are the key factors to consider, including the costs, accommodation and food options, and alternative routes.
Depending on your trekking itinerary, you have a variety of accommodation options for your Everest Gokyo trek. Whether you're looking for a basic tea house or a luxury hotel, there is something for everyone.
Teahouses offer cozy rooms with twin beds. Most have a dining room and toilets. They also provide pillows, blankets, and common heating in the dining room. They are inexpensive. Some have separate rooms for bathrooms and showers. Some also have an electric blanket.
If you are planning on trekking in the Everest region, you should book your accommodation as soon as possible. Many hotels and teahouses will be booked out in the peak season. You may have to sleep in a dining room or share a room with other trekkers.
You may also be able to find accommodations at a lodge in Dzongla, which is the sister settlement of Gokyo. These lodges are better and have more capacity for trekkers. However, most of them are closed during the monsoon or winter.
During the Everest Gokyo Trek, you have to choose food options that are healthy for your body. You should take foods that are high in carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, and minerals. This will help you keep your energy levels high and prevent dehydration.
You should also drink enough water during the trek. Your body needs three to four liters of water daily. You can also take food supplements and protein bars. These supplements can provide you with the protein you need during the trek.
You should also eat foods that are light and nutritious. This is especially important since you are likely to be walking for about six to seven hours per day. You should also carry enough water, especially when you are climbing high elevations. You should also carry dry fruits, as these are packed with nutrients.
Most tea houses in the Everest region offer a wide variety of foods. These range from Chinese and Asian to western foods. These foods are not always fresh and may not be hygienic.
Organizing an Everest Gokyo Trek requires the use of a trekking guide and porter. These professionals have spent many years in the field and can guide you through the high-altitude environment. They also alert you to possible dangers.
The cost of the guide and porter is not included in the price of your trek. However, the cost of a guide can be calculated by dividing the cost of the trek by the number of people in your group.
The cost of a guide can range from $35 to $40 per day. You can also hire a guide and porter package, which may include food and accommodation. These packages are usually more convenient and are available from travel agents and online group travel websites.
Several alternative routes to Everest Base Camp are available. However, trekking in the Himalayas can be very difficult. There are three main high passes that need to be crossed. The trek is not recommended for novice trekkers. The trek takes about three weeks and can be done in tea house services. The trek is extremely remote.
The Everest Three High Passes Trek is a popular trekking route that takes you through the beautiful land of the Himalayas. The trek diverges from the traditional trail to Namche. It takes you through several settlements, glaciers, and icefalls.
Another popular alternative trek is the Gokyo Lakes Trek. This trek offers six beautiful glacial lakes that are located in the Sagarmatha National Park. This trek is more tranquil than the EBC Trek. The trek includes a detour to the Gokyo Lakes on the return journey. This trek can be confusing because it includes smaller yak trails.
The Cho La Pass is one of the three passes that are required to trek to Everest Base Camp. This pass is 5,330 meters high and is the most difficult part of the trek. It requires a lot of stamina and a lot of wind. The trek is ideal for those who have a lot of stamina and are looking for an adventure.
The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is 40 minutes of pure mountain experience until we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport. Our trek begins in Lukla as we descend towards the Dudh Koshi River before following the trail leading to Namche Bazaar
The trek to Namche Bazar is a steep climb through forests of rhododendron around the Sagarmatha National Park. After crossing several suspension bridges and four hours of walking we reach the Sherpa market of Namche Bazaar.
Two days of rest in Namche Bazaar helps us in acclimatization and prepares us for our journey ahead. Namche, the trading capital of the Khumbu region was once the trading grounds of Tibetan Salt. Even today we can see Tibetans selling rugs, clothing, salt, and dried meat in the region. Namche is believed to be one of the best places on earth to see the sunrise and set.
On the journey from Namche Bazaar to Dole, we get to see plenty of rhododendrons, pheasants mountain goats, and musk deers. The uphill trail to Dole consists of long granite staircases built into cliffs. A panoramic view of several peaks, especially Ama Dablam is the main highlight of the day.
The trail climbs via Lhabarma (4,220m) to Luza (4360m) from Dole. The trail is steep sometimes and leads us to Machhermo after a climb along the side of the valley high above the river. The first Yeti sightings in the Khumbu region were reported in Machhermo in 1974.
The Cho Oyu (8,513) peak is best seen from Machhermo and the valley of Kantega below. The trail passes through Pangram (4,390m) and past the Ngozumpa and Longponga glaciers before we finally reach Gokyo at 4,750m.
The Gokyo Ri (5,360m) is a small hill rising from the North of a glacier and requires a 3-hour ascent. Once atop the Gokyo Ri, we can see more of Everest magnificently framed by the Makalu, Nuptse, and Changtse.
The trail from Gokyo to Dole is a series of steep climbs as we descend down the valley to reach Machhermo. After lunch at Machhermo, we make our way to Dole and once again are mesmerized by its scenic beauty.
If you wish to climb up the Renjo Pass (5,360m) and stay in Marulung (4,210m).
The trail now descends to Namche Bazaar which offers superb views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kwangde peaks. On reaching Shanasa after two hours of pleasant walking and an hour’s rest we continue our journey to Namche.
On our way back, we cross suspension bridges over the Dudh Koshi River, make our way through steep descends, and walk past numerous tea houses before finally arriving at Lukla.
Again, 40 minutes of pure mountain experience on our flight to Kathmandu marks the end of our journey.
Today, you have time till your departure from Kathmandu and can visit the historical city of Kathmandu and tourist places in Thamel.
Note: Above holiday itinerary can be customized as our guest specific requirements and can make shorter and longer. We design your holidays accordingly.
Water: Mineral waters are available at all stops during tea house treks (paying your own). You can also use tap water if you choose to use water purification tablets.
Medical support: An emergency first aid kit is carried by the support staff at all times.
Food on tea house trek: During tea house treks our guests pay for their own food (breakfast/lunch/dinner) at the lodge. It can be about USD $25 each day per person. You can choose your own meal as a menu for every tea house.
Choosing the right travel insurance for Everest Gokyo Trek is essential. A good policy should provide you with protection against lost luggage, hijacking, and medical evacuation. In addition, your policy should include coverage for activities in Nepal. You may also want to consider adding a High-Value Item insurance plan to your policy.
Choosing the correct trekking equipment for Everest Gokyo Trek can make a big difference to your trek. For example, a waterproof jacket is essential for any season. A fleece jacket will keep you warm in the cold.
Base layers should consist of a wool blend. This allows the skin to breathe, while also absorbing moisture. A long-sleeved vest is a good addition.
Gloves should be windproof and water-resistant. They should also have a comfortable grip on your hiking poles. Wearing two pairs is recommended.
Sleeping bags are also important. A mummy sleeping bag weighs less than a rectangular one. It can have a stash pocket.
During the day, sunglasses are a must. They protect your eyes from the sun's harmful UV light. They should also be polarized. Surgical masks and cloth masks are also acceptable.
You can also use a neck gaiter. This will keep your neck warm and prevent dirt from getting into your boots. It is especially useful when you are at a high altitude.
You should also pack sunglasses that are polarized and UV protected. During the day, you may want to wear a baseball hat. You can also use a buff as a neck gaiter.
A hydration bladder should be built into your daypack. This will make sipping on the water easier. The bladder should hold three liters.
For extra warmth, you can also bring a woolen cap. This will protect your face from the Khumbu cough. Alternatively, you can also use a poncho.
Joining group departures are on fixed dates and guaranteed to depart the trek with a minimum of two people to a maximum of 10 people in the group. The benefit of joining the group is sharing the cost at a lower price & sharing different experiences with other travelers during your holidays.
Yes, we have set planned joining groups in upcoming months and fixed dates. If you are alone or have more people & still want to join the group, you can ask our expert once. He will write a quick response as possible if the dates are available in your time frame and suggest the best as your wish and as a budget. To make sure that to issue the special permit fees, you should arrive in Kathmandu two days before. As this is one of the special TEA HOUSE TREK in Nepal, we need Everest national park permission from the Nepal government to travel the Everest Gokyo Ri trek and TIMS CARD (Trekking Information Management System)
