Our team of local guides are true experts, with over 20 years' experience in the Gokyo Valley and with MT Sobek.

Reason #03

This exploratory adventure takes intrepid travelers to a less-visited part of Nepal, staying true to MT Sobek's heritage.

Activities

Strenuous hiking on mountain paths, covering 2.5-8 miles per day on rugged terrain at a maximum elevation of 17,575'.

Lodging

Scenic and comfortable mountain accommodations in Nepalese inns and lodges, plus two nights at Kathmandu's comfortable Yak & Yeti Hotel.

Climate

Autumn daytime temperatures: 45°F - 65°F; autumn nighttime temperatures 10°F - 35°F. Rain or snow possible. Spring temperatures 5°F-10°F warmer than autumn.

Who will meet me on arrival?

Your trip leader will meet you in Kathmandu.

Do I need a visa for Nepal?

Yes, and you can get a 30-day visa on arrival for $40.

Do I need to bring a sleeping bag for this trip?

No, we can provide a Mountain Hardwear 0° bag free of charge.

Will I have cell coverage on this trip?

It's best not to count on it, as coverage is spotty.

Does this trip contribute to any local philanthrophy efforts?
