Why Should I Have a Guided Tour in the Gokyo Lakes Region

As of April 1, 2023, the Nepalese Tourism Board has advised that all trekkers in Nepal must be accompanied by a guide, making it mandatory for the Gokyo Lakes trek.

The Gokyo Lakes region is known for its challenging access and extreme climates, and having a professional guide ensures safety, security, and expert navigation. Guides offer valuable insights into potential hazards, local culture, and the best viewpoints. They also manage accommodation and logistics, provide emergency support, and facilitate meaningful interactions with the local community.

The law was implemented to ensure trekkers’ safety, as many have gone missing or faced mishaps on the way.
