Rescue Chopper service is available to anyone at any time in case of emergency. You need not sign up for treks or other tour packages with us.

If you would like us to coordinate rescue in case of emergency then please send us your Insurance policy details (eg policy number, contact phone, coverage, etc), and your trekking or tour details (trek area, departure date, etc). And we will send you our local contact details to call in case of emergency rescue and evacuation.

Search – Rescue operation from Mt. Manaslu in November – 2015

The operation was conducted for Pasche Favrod Madeleine Rose from Switzerland had suffered from ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS and was possibly affected by Phynomnia diseases during her group trekking with very basic safety equipment.

The situation was very critical as she was almost near death. In spite of the bad weather condition, Gokyo Treks and Expedition conducted the operation swiftly and didn’t panic for a second to come up with a proper operation.

To date we have handled more than 6 rescue missions of various kinds including search operations, Helicopter rescue, transportation, sightseeing, and medical evacuation.

If you/ your family members and any other are missing or trapped or suffering from high altitude sickness in the Himalayas or anywhere during your trip, We at Gokyo Treks and Expedition Pvt Ltd is ready to handle your search mission. We are always on our toes to conduct rescue operations for those in need and assure you that we operate 24/7 and use Sherpa’s with technical rescue skills always ready to go even at a higher altitude of 8000 m and above.

Moreover, Helicopter salvage is the quickest and most ideal way for the clinical departure in the remote piece of Nepal. Since we are committed to rescuing lives, medevac or salvage flights are the most continuous activities we do.

Be that as it may, there is not a helicopter rescue on Everest. The air is simply excessively meager for most helicopters to create sufficient lift to stay airborne. Assuming the helicopter is prepared to arrive at that tallness, making the arrival is as yet an unimaginably fragile undertaking.
