Gokyo Cho La Pass serves as one of the finest adventures in the Gokyo valley region for adventure lovers who seek natural beauty and scenic diversity as well as rich cultures and ancient traditions.

Join this trek for some of the most stunning views of the Himalayas as we take you past beautiful valleys and deep gorges, majestic glaciers and glacial rivers and villages that have maintained ancient traditions and cultures since ages.

Start with cultural and historical sites in Kathmandu Valley, before heading to the immensely beautiful Gokyo Valley. The trek starts with a scenic flight over rolling hills and flowing rivers and you're treated to unparalleled views of the lofty Himalayas. Next up is a trek through old-world settlements to the Namche Bazaar. Prayer flags, prayer wheels and Mani stones, rhododendron forests, ancient monasteries and suspension bridges are just some of the things that keep you company on this trek.

Namche Bazaar is a bustling hub in the Khumbu region, the ideal place for acclimatization. Trekking continues to a higher altitude towards the ancient monasteries in Tengboche and Dingboche before we move on to the iconic Everest Base Camp.

Trekkers then return to Lobuche before going for Thangan through the challenging Cho La Pass. Witness marvelous mountain scenery from the pass, discover a unique culture and ancient tradition of the Sherpa community before ending your trek in the beautiful city of Kathmandu.

The formidable Cho La Pass (5,420m), the largest glacier of Ngozumba and Gokyo village (one of the highest settlements in the world) are some of the strong reasons to join this trek.

“Mr. Dipak ensures a very personal approach and contact, constantly monitors everything and together with his employees he makes sure everything is arranged quickly and qualitatively!
An added value that the organization consists entirely of its own people from there and that, for example, they do not exploit the carriers! A fair reliable local organization that provides a very qualitative and personal service!

organizational: completely successful!
The communication in advance, pick me up at the airport and EVERYTHING in between until the drop me back at the airport for the return trip: everything was arranged!
By banal throat infection after the peak ascent yet with heli to hospital ... where people from Trekking Planner were there to assist me, Dipak came to visit me personally and check if everything went well ... 3 days later I was in Pokhara enjoy (with antibiotics)! Good insurance is extremely important! Hint: European assistance 'world sport'.

The trekking & Peak climb: A dream trip that has come true !!
The guide (Gyeljan) and the wearer (Nuri) did everything to make it an unforgettable journey; two fanatic people! If necessary, adjustments could be made on site at all times.

Bungee and Pokhara: completely successful!
The few extra days planned with Dipak on site.
In Pokhara I was welcomed and dropped off at a very pleasant hotel close to Phewa Lake.”

Unforgettable experience
“Beginning of this year I ve started to plan my trip to Nepal. I wanted to do a trekking tour and also some sightseeing. After some research I decided to do my trekking tour with TREKKING PLANER and this was a really good decision. Dipak (the manager of this company) also help me to plan my sightseeing tour and the only thing I needed to do was to tell him what I want to see and which dates I want to come.
From the first moment when I arrived in Nepal there was always someone taking care of me. I was picked up at the airport, bus stations and so on. During the sightseeing tours in Kathmandu, Pokhara and Chitwan I had really nice guides who made this time unforgettable for me. After one week of traveling in Nepal I ve started a trekking tour from Lukla to the Everest Base Camp and the Gokyo Valley including the Cho La Pass. This tour was also perfectly organized and I had the best guide I could imagine. We were always laughing and we had a lot of fun. Most evenings we spent together in the tea houses and it was great to listen to his experience in the mountains.
At the end I think my trip to Nepal could not have been better and I m really thankful to Dipak and his team. If you are thinking about a trip to Nepal and you need some help with the organization I can warmly recommend TREKKING PLANER.”

High Pass Trek
“I recently completed the Everest High Pass Trek with Nepal Trekking Planners and it could not have been a more perfect experience. I highly recommend this company and they catered to every need.First of the owner Dipak met me at the airport and brought me to my hotel. He even walked me up to the room to make sure it was okay. He was there the next day to introduce me to my guide for the Kathmandu city tour and then walked me to the welcome dinner. He was also there to take me to the airport, and meet me on the way back after finishing the trek. He explained that his priority is the service to his clients rather than having large numbers, and this was evident. He helped me book tickets to my next destination, and even took me to the right trekking stores in Kathmandu to make sure I had everything I needed. Truly an incredible guy.As far as the trek I was a bit hesitant at first to do it alone (had a great guide, Khila and amazing porter Hare). For me it was the best decision that ever happened because I got to go my pace which ended up being quite quick. I watched as other large companies treated their groups almost like cattle and people had to wait in the cold for 30-45 minutes for everyone to catch up. The great thing about Trekking Planners is they cater the trek to any group size and are very flexible. During the trek I fell in love with Ama Dablam mountain, and my guide Khila allowed us to change the schedule so we could go to basecamp. Also along the way we were able to move around days and for me combine some things to make the days a bit longer since I completed things so quickly.The ability of a company to cater to their clients and be so flexible is SO IMPORTANT on a trek. Everyone has a different trekking style and Trekking Planners teaches their guides to adjust the trek to 100% satisfy the clients. I had several people along the way say they wish they had known about Trekking Planners and I think there is no better sign than that. Accommodation and meals were always provided for in a timely fashion on the trek and it worked seamlessly.The actual high pass trek is so incredible it is hard to describe without experiencing it yourself. The high passes can be challenging, but more rewarding for me than Everest Base Camp or any other part. The views are phenomenal for anyone up for a bit of adventure this is the trek for you. It allows you to get away from the crowds for a while, and to feel the beauty of the Himalayas.”

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.
