Being in excellent physical and mental health is essential for this trip. Altitude sickness is a serious concern on any Nepal hiking trip.

Along the way, the hikers will face a variety of difficulties, including narrow cliffs, rocky terrain, meadows, deep valleys, and roads covered with rocks.

    Good food, Good Accommodation Facilities, Perfect Arrangement by GVNT

    The whole trekking journey was perfectly aligned with my level of physical and mental preparation. I talked about this trek almost 2 months before going on it and the GVNT team suggested me some of the important exercises and preparations I needed to do.

    I did as instructed and had such good times during the Everest Base Camp trek with Gokyo Valley exploration via Salleri. Moreover, GVNT also left no excuses in preparing the best food as per my choice as far as accessibility and the accommodation facilities were also impressive.

    I did not have to worry about not having an internet connection, hot water to take a shower, and a charging port to charge my cell phone. The lodges and guest houses offered all of those (though I had to pay for that but payment was reasonable). Even in such remotely accessed areas and altitudes, I was shocked to have such facilities.

    Loved the overall arrangement done by the GVNT team and I suggest everyone choose this travel agency if they want to visit Nepal.

    Everest Gokyo Trek via Salleri Was a Dream That Lasted For 20 Days

    Ascending the Everest trail had always been a dream for me and finally, I was able to fulfill that dream of mine with Green Valley Nepal Treks. However, I feel that reaching the Everest Base Camp, watching the best view of Mt. Everest from Kalapatthar, and visiting the Gokyo Lake and Valley were all just parts of a dream that lasted for 20 days.

    When you are surrounded by exceptionally talented people, even the hardest works feel easier. The same happened to me in this Everest Gokyo Trek via Salleri. The trekking route was indeed challenging but the instructions provided by Arjun and the support offered by the guide made the whole trek feel like a dream (so accessible, adventurous, and easy).

    One of the best trekking journeys of my lifetime around the places blessed by nature and with such a proficient guide. Nothing more to ask from a trekking agency than what Green Valley Nepal offers. Thanks, Arjun and the entire Green Valley team for arranging such a beautiful trekking adventure.
