Everest Gokyo Cho la Pass Trek is one of Nepal’s most famous adventure treks, set amongst breathtaking high mountain scenery, in the Khumbu-Sherpa country.
After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla, we follow the Dudh Koshi valley to Namche Bazaar. The Renjo la Pass (5345 m) route is off the usual beaten track. At the pass, the Gokyo lakes on one side, the Rermo Pokhari lakes on the other side, and a myriad of snowy peaks in the background provide an incredible panorama. From the Gokyo village, we climb the Gokyo peak (5480 m) and enjoy a stunning view of several eight thousand meter mountains including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo.
From Gokyo village, we follow a trail over Cho la pass and reach Lobuche . After ascending to Kala Patthar (5545 m) and getting some impressive close-up views of the Everest, our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent village with an ancient monastery. We rest here and savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856 m), Kantega (6809 m), Kwangde (6194 m), Nuptse (7879 m), and Lhotse (8511 m), to name but a few.
