The trip Everest Circuit & The Cho La starts from and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking tour that takes 21 days taking you through Dingboche, Gokyo, Namche Bazar and 16 other destinations in Nepal. Everest Circuit & The Cho La is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Spectacular traverse from Gokyo Lakes to Kala Pattar affording incredible views of Mount Everest. Combining our classic Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes treks with a stunning crossing of the non-technical Cho La pass provides an unsurpassed circuit trek of the Everest region. We make climbs of the popular Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar along the way, which provide magnificent photo opportunities of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest, and views as far as Kanchenjunga in the east and the Tibetan 8000m peak Cho Oyu to the north. We will also view Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Cholatse, the beautiful pyramid of Ama Dablam, as well as countless other Himalayan peaks. There is also time to visit the famous Base Camp, and during the months of March, April & May, will view the many expedition camps. Each night you will be accommodated in our private eco campsites as well as handpicked eco lodges. Another dimension to this adventure is the famous Sherpa culture providing a truly unforgettable experience.

“I did the Everest Circuit and the Cho la. We went in early November and the weather was brilliant (blue skies mostly) although it could be very cold at night some times. Our guide Subal and his team were excellent. The program set by World Expeditions was great. It allowed us to acclimatize gradually and very well. The scenery is brilliant. In regard to the trekking you could do this at your own pace and there was no pressure to go faster or slower. The food was plentiful and good. You do need to be fit prior for the trip and a really good pair of hiking boots are a necessity. I would highly recommend this trek.”

“I highly recommend World Expeditions for all trips at high altitude. Their leadership and safety record is excellent and their itinerary is slow and paced well which maximizes ones chances of acclimatizing well and completing the trip, all without getting ill. At the end one will have a great sense of achievement and have completed an enjoyable, epic trip.”
