The Everest base camp and Gokyo lake trek, also known as Cho La Pass trek, is one of the most adventurous treks in the Everest Himalayas. The trek follows the Everest Base Camp route for the first few days and then heads out to the Cho La Pass at 5330 meters and Gokyo. This is a unique trek that encompasses visits to Lukla, Namche Bazaar, the beautiful waters of the Gokyo Lakes and the heights of Cho La Pass, Kala Patthar and Mount Everest Base Camp.

It leads you through traditional Sherpa villages in the foothills of some the highest peaks in the world. The route also crosses the fast flowing Dudh Koshi River and visits its source; the Gokyo Lakes, where you will also have the opportunity to summit Gokyo Peak (5483 meters) offering astonishing, panoramic views of Mt. Cho Oyo, Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu.

The route also heads to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, another chance to summit a Himalayan peak to achieve unparalleled views of Mount Everest and the surrounding mountain giants.

Icefalls, glaciers, the world’s highest Buddhist monastery at Tyagnboche and unimaginable views of some of the world’s “eight thousanders” are all on offer on this truly spectacular trekking route. You will return home having accomplished the ascent of two peaks, challenging trails and reaching the base of the highest mountain in the world, all whilst witnessing some of the most captivating scenery, insurmountable anywhere else in the world.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
