Answer: Most of all places hotels and shops where you can able to buy mineral water and you can buy it for drinking but however we advise against buying mineral water in plastic bottles, as currently there are no provisions for disposing of these. Instead, we advise you to purchase boiled water at the local guest houses or bring aqua tablets to purify the normal water as the normal water is available at the campsite/along the way in the camping trekking.

Question: Can I charge my digital camera or other batteries on my trip?

Answer: During the Tea house trekking there will be more chances to charge the battery. We recommend you bring an extra pair in case. Remember to bring your adapters! And we recommend you take extra batteries along with you.

Answer: Travel insurance is mandatory before joining any trips with us, and you need to get your travel insurance policy before joining your trips to Nepal. Your travel insurance must cover the helicopter rescue up to 19,000 feet altitude. It comes in handy during medical emergencies and contingency situations. It is recommended to get it from your home country. In case you haven’t bought travel insurance after arriving in Kathmandu; we can help you get one.

Question: How to prevent altitude sickness during Kala Patthar Trek?

Answer: You should never walk too quickly or too high ignoring your body symptoms. Proper altitude acclimatization is the best way to prevent high-altitude sickness. Listen to your body, trek gradually enjoying the best of culture and nature while giving enough time for your body to adapt to the changing atmosphere. Drink a lot of fluid & keep your body hydrated. If symptoms like a headache, difficulty in breathing, and others occur. Descend to a lower altitude and taken to the hospital. If the condition worsened you will be airlifted to the hospital in Kathmandu.

Question: What will happen if my scheduled flight Kathmandu – Lukla – Kathmandu route gets delayed or canceled?

Answer: Weather in the Himalayas is uncertain and we cannot predict. Therefore, the rate of fight delay and cancellation is high at Lukla. If this happens then you will be boarded on the flight tomorrow and you have to spend an extra night at Lukla (if you are returning to Ktm) at Ktm (if you are going to Lukla). Helicopter rescue can also be used, which depends on the situation. So, we recommend you allocate a couple of extra days after your Everest trek so that you will not miss your international flight back.

Question: What are the alternates to fly from Kathmandu to Lukla?

Answer: The best-recommended way to go for any Everest trek is to board a Kathmandu-Lukla 33 minutes scenic mountain flight. Another available option is to drive from Kathmandu to Phaplu (12 hours full-day drive) and trek for 2 days to reach Chaurikharka. In the present day, there is a regular jeep service from Kathmandu – to Salleri – Kathmandu.

Question: When should I book my trip and what are the payment terms?

Answer: Because our trips book up months in advance, we recommend booking early to avoid any kind of misunderstanding. We will, of course, make every effort to accommodate last-minute bookings.

Moreover, regarding the deposit, we prefer 20% advance deposit of the total price of the trip in order to confirm your reservation before you arrive in Nepal. And the rest of the payment can be made after your arrival in Kathmandu.

Question: How much distance do I have to walk each day?

Answer: When walking/trekking in the mountains, the distance you cover each day can vary greatly due to gradient, terrain, and altitude. As such it is very hard to give specific distances on each day, however, you have to be prepared to walk roughly about 5 hours each day.

Question: Do I need walking poles for Kala Patthar Trek?

EBC (Kala Patthar) trek vs. Gokyo Ri trek or Gokyo Ridge trek vs. EBC (Kala Patthar) trek

I have done both treks 10 times already leading the western and American groups. I would not claim the Gokyo trek more scenic, because along the EBC trails you are exposed to Ama Dablam and Chukkhung ridge through Imja valley with numerous top popular peaks, also much closer views of Nuptse, Pumori, and Mount Everest itself.

Kala Patthar viewpoint

You do get a nice panorama of Everest and those top peaks from Gokyo Ri (and Renjo La if you exit that way). Kala Pathar is really nice but the Gokyo valley really adds some supernatural things. If you would wish to see not frozen lakes. The view of Everest from and near Ngozumpa RI is terrific and you get a better view of Lhotse.

EBC hike is Nepal’s legendary hiking route combined Kala Pattar trek is also much busier (hundreds of trekkers every day passing from Lobuche to Gorakshep. Many trekkers prefer to see Khumbu Icefall, base camp, and Everest panorama from Kala Pattar hilltop because Everest is only 9 km away and from Gokyo some 23 km, which is quite a difference. Likewise, Hike at the Basecamp is probably not worth visiting, as you can’t see the Everest mountain itself.

This was the 2nd time we trekked with Gokyo Treks and Expedition. It was overall another fabulous trek and experience. The scenery was wonderful and we were pleased with the trip.
The fee charged was comparatively lower compared to other agencies while Ammar, the boss, was doing a wonderful service back to the community by committing part of the company’s earnings to fund the education of orphans, and victims of the past earthquake.
We were touched by his effort and commitment to giving back to society in helping the needy. Keep up the good work and we look forward to our next trek with the Gokyo agency.
