The best seasons for trekking in Nepal are March to May in Spring season and mid September to mid December is in Autumn season.
There are treks suitable for a wide range of experience and physical fitness. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. An easy trek with Nepali support (guide / porterguide / porter) and teahouse accomodation is quite attainable for anyone who is reasonably fit. Longer treks, crossing high passes and into remote regions demand a higher degree of endurance. For Trekking Peaks, i.e. summitting a mountain of 5650-6500m, it is desirable to have some alpine climbing experience
We are experts for the operations trip at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a sound acclimatization program. We created this trekking itinerary to allow for gradual height gain spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude, but for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent will produce minimal effects. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. For all trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters, our guides carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness; they are trained to track symptoms as well as administer medications but we recommend to you to carry medicine by yourself that is beneficial for you.
To be sufficiently protected in terms of insurance, you need specialized travel insurance for participation in hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers emergency evacuation, trip injury, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. Our agency Gokyo Treks & Expedition can arrange for the appropriate policy based on your trekking.
The climate of Nepal is as varied as its geography. The low-lying Terai has a sub-tropical monsoonal climate. The Himalaya where most of our treks take place, are best in the cool dry season from September to May. The traditional trekking season in Nepal is late September to December, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather. Spring is also a popular time of year with warmer weather and the advantage of seeing spring flowers and rhododendrons in bloom. The visibility is good and days are pleasantly warm, although nights can be cold, and snow is possible above 3,000 meters.
This trekking is likely to have a wide range of temperatures depending on the altitude and the time of day. In the mountains up to 3,500m the nights will be cool, normally around 5 degree C, and during the day temperatures sometimes rise to 25 degree C. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 15 degree C to -10 degree C.
We bring together a small group of likeminded people to give them a memorable and insightful travel experience with an invaluable opportunity to interact in a fun-filled environment. Our travel group generally comprises a maximum of 12 members. We need a minimum of 2 participants to run our fixed departure dates. For individualized trips, no minimum or maximum applies.

Karlsruhe, Germany“Everest - 3 pass trekking tour”
In November 2015 I mad a long trek (24 days) in the Everest region of Nepal with a portercum guide.
Gokyo Treks support my individual and ambitious planed tour perfect with place a competent guide and organizing the transfers (buses + inland flights) in a challenging environment (fuel crises). I had a great time without worries about finding the right way or lodges with a good standard per price. Over my attender I have interesting contacts with locals and concurrent always the flexibility and freedom to organize every day in my interest. All organization work of the journey was uncomplicated done in a short time thanks the fast and precise response of Ammar Guni (the owner of Goko Treks and Expedition ), who understand and life the customer focus.
Hopefully a lot of people can get the experience of this grandiose tour like I.
Visited November 2015.
Our group of 4 people completed the Everest Three Pass trek with the help of “Gokyo Treks and Expeditions” in November 2016. Mr Ammar Raj Guni, the owner, is very professional and dedicated; he had responded promptly to all our questions that we had before the trip. When we arrived to Kathmandu everything was already arranged for us: permits, tickets to Lukla, meeting with Ammar and our guide Som Shresta. Som is very experienced with this route, speaks very good English, and is social and patient. He really likes to share his knowledge about local places and traditions. We spend a lot of time together, climbing the passes and trekking peaks as well as sharing our stories in the evenings. After the trip Ammar invited us to his home for a dinner, introducing us to his whole family.
It is also important to mention that Ammar takes care of the hired porters making sure that they do not get overloaded. He contributes to local community sponsoring children to get school education and rebuilding a school after the Earthquake. This was our second trip with Gokyo Treks. The first one was Annapurna Circuit in 2014 that has built our confidence with Gokyo Treks and we were 100% sure to we want to cooperate with Ammar again.
Thanks for your message! We will get back to you ASAP!
