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.

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.
