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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.


  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.


  • 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.
