Everest Base Camp and Gokyo with Cho la Pass (5,422m/17,783ft) is one of the most challenging treks in Nepal. It features a combination of ancient tradition, culture and top-class adventure in the Khumbu mountains. The trail weaves through the entire upper Khumbu Region, including the crystal clear Gokyo Lake, the renowned viewpoint Gokyo-Ri, and the base of world's tallest mountain, Mount Everest.

The Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Cho La Pass trek offers breathtaking mountain views from Chukung, Kala Patthar and Gokyo Ri. This trek is also known as "The Ultimate Trek," because it includes all that Khumbu has to offer: from beautiful Himalayan terrain and spectacular mountain panoramas, to hospitable local villages and Sherpa Buddhist monasteries, espousing the local Buddhist culture.

Beginning with a scenic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu, we follow the trail to Namche Bazzar along the Dudhkoshi (milky) river valley. We then make our way towards the Everest Base Camp (5,550m). Veering off the main trail and crossing the Cho La Pass at 5,330m, we finally reach the Everest Base Camp.

Along the trail, we will pass several yak grazing fields and visit the Gokyo lakes. This is where we climb the Gokyo Ri peak and get magnificent panoramic views of the greatest mountain scenery in the world - including five giants peaks above 8,000m: Everest, Choyu, Makalu, Kanchanjunga and Lhotse. Besides these giants, we also get some great views of countless other peaks of the Khumbu Region.

Finally, we will drop to the other side of the Khumbu valley which takes us to Kala Patthar (5,545m), where we come face to face with Mt Everest.

“This simply was the greatest adventure of my life so far and i doubt anything i do will top this. I live at sea level and have never ever been on a real mountain before, though I always wanted to. hiking up along the treks was not very easy for me at first. But i learned the tricks quickly with a very helpful guide Mr. Sudip. He was really helpful and advised me to go as slow as needed and to take breaks every so often. At one time he even carried my backpack when he felt it would be difficult for me to hike with it, but it actually was not that difficult, and he insisted of carrying it. The trek was usually very easy and i believe if an unfit guy who lives at sea level can do it, anyone can really do it. The views everyday was breathtaking to me. But the view from the Gokyo Ri was the most amazing of them all. I could have stayed there for hours starring the turquoise lakes and view of mountain range including mount Everest. All in all, I absolutely loved this great adventure.
However, there are few things i would have like to be different in the trip. It was not easy to maintain a good hygiene as there are no hot showers except for in a very few (i think 2) places we stop for the day during the trek. So, it will be better to have wet wipes with you to get cleaned.”
