Everest Base Camp-Chola pass-Gokyo Lake Trek

  • Duration: 15 Days
  • Based on Client Reviews

The Everest Base Camp Trek via Chola pass and Gokyo Lakes, recognized for the series of beautiful turquoise lakes in the Gokyo valley and the famous Cho La Pass, takes us through the landmarks of the Khumbu region in the company of majestically soaring mountains, friendly Sherpas, colorful monasteries, the Namche Bazaar, the Sagarmatha National Park, and, of course, to the base of the mighty Everest.

The trek, in advancing to the base of the world’s tallest mountain, maps out spectacular vistas from such celebrated viewpoints like Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar. The trek also awards us with great views of the Khumbu Icefall. Trekking to the Gokyo Lakes through Everest Base Camp and Chola Pass, in a nutshell, will be a lifetime experience with the enthralling sights of Mt. Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Nuptse, Amadablam, Pumori, and Dengboche Monastery as the largest monastery from Khumbu region in Nepal.

The itinerary of the trek to Gokyo Lakes via Everest Base camp is ideal for hikers who wish to take up more challenge and “stay off the beaten path” while treading upon remote Nepalese trails. However if you are a novice trekker who is in good health and average physical fitness, this might be right for you. Additionally, if you are an experienced trekker who wants to trek to the Everest Base Camp, but has limited amount of time in your hands, then you can sign up for Everest Base Camp Short Trek – 12/13 Days
