  • Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Ri
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.

Great experience
“Many thanks to mosaic adventure, we had a very challenging and adventurous experience hiking through the beautiful mountains. Not sure I would do the tour of Kathmandu next time tho as it took up most of the day, but was very informative.”

Amazing adventure in the mountains
“The trip was one of the most amazing things I've ever done in my life. I travelled to Nepal alone but met some fantastic people along the way. The sights of the mountains were spectacular and really have to be seen first hand to be believed. It wasn't easy and I definitely struggled on a few days but that's what makes my memories greater.”

Everest Base Camp and 3 Passes Trek
“We were a group of 10 friends who decided about a year back to do the 17 day trek to Everest Base Camp and 3 Passes. AND what to say!!! It was absolutely amazing :)

From day one Madhav at Mosaic Adventure was quick to answer our questions and provide advise which made preparing for the trip a lot easier and set realistic expectations.

Once in Nepal, we were met at the airport and taken to our hotel. The next day we enjoyed a city tour with one of their knowledgable and very accommodating guides (this was also a highlight of our trip).

Then the day arrived - the start to our trek! We were met by Madhav and our guide (BN) in the morning and it was off to the airport and supprisingly a timely departure to Lukla (these flights tend to get cancelled last minute due to weather).
During the trek we had modest but comfortable accommodations with all three meals included. These are generally carb based (to keep ones energy levels up) and non the less tasty!
During the entire trip our guide BN and assistant guide Purna were nothing short than amazing. They told us stories about the areas, their lives and answered the multitude of questions we had and always made sure we were all ok.
Sadly one of our group became very ill with AS, so much so she had to be airlifted out by helicopter. What was a rather worrisome and stressful situation was made so much easier with the guidance of our guides about what needs to happen and Madhav then checking in on her once in the hospital in Kathmandu.
The trek itself I would describe as amazing scenery with well kept paths and to really enjoy this journey you should have a very good fitness level. The most challenging days for part of the team were the passes but rest of the time the walking is what one refers to as a Nepalese Flat (hilly).

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment in Nepal and can't wait to get back there again to do another of their incredible treks through the mountain area. This is truly a trip of a lifetime with added flare added by the guides.

Thank you to the entire Mosaic Team for making this what it was and I cant wait to be back :D

PS: we trekked 16 October 2017 - 1 November 2017 and had amazing weather!”

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?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.
