Everest Cho La Pass Trek in the Everest region takes you to the heart of the Himalaya and Sherpa country. It is a thrilling and challenging trek that combines the Everest Base Camp route with the turquoise glacial lakes of Gokyo valley. This trek is renowned for its proximity to the world’s highest mountain, friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of culture and tradition, colorful festivals and ancient monasteries, interesting myth and mystery, tremendous flora and fauna.

We start with a classic route to Everest Base Camp along the Dudh Koshi valley to the Khumbu glacier and Everest base Camp. Kala Pathar (5554 m) is our first ascent which rewards us with a panorama of the majestic Everest (8850 m) and its neighboring peaks of Pumori (7145 m), Ama Dablam (6856 m), Nuptse (7855 m), Thamsherku (6723 m), Lhotse (8516 m) etc. Throughout this trek the panorama is constantly changing but each and every one leaves you with an unforgettable memory of this mountain wilderness. The trail then crosses the glaciated Cho La Pass (5420 m) to the Goyko valley with its perfect turquoise glacial lakes. The 360 º view from Gokyo Ri (5330 m) is magnificent. You are surrounded by four of the fourteen eight-thousanders; Everest (8850 m), Lhotse (8516 m), Makalu (8463 m) and Cho Oyu (8201 m) and the view down to the turquoise lakes and Ngozounba Glacier is breathtakingly amazing.
