The trip Everest Circuit & The Cho La starts and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking tour that takes 21 days taking you through Gokyo, Dzongla, Lukla and 13 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.

“The trek to Everest Base Camp gave me the opportunity to feel small again in a big beautiful world. The small piece of the Himalayas I saw left me speechless in its beauty. As a first time trekker, World Expeditions made me confident to take on this challenge with my Dad. The staff went above and beyond. Already thinking of my next trek with World Expeditions.”

“Fantastic trip, we were well looked after by Sanjay and his team. My main concern when booking the trip was that I am on a Gluten Free diet, and it turned out I was not the only one, but due to the fact that all meals are freshly cooked daily by the team chef I had no problems whatsoever and would recommend it for anyone with the same concerns. Thank you!”
