HIGHLIGHTS
  • World's one of the most famous point; Everest Base Camp
  • Kalapatthar and Gokyo RI gives superb views of Everest Himalayan range
  • Most beautiful and one of the toughest Chola Pass
  • Unmatched cultural diversity of Khumbu valley
This Gokyo Everest Base Camp Trek is also known as Cho La Pass Trek, and is one of the major routes available to visit Everest Base Camp. It is a combined trek of Gokyo Lakes and the Everest Base Camp with an option to cross a high altitude pass named Cho La.

Although trekkers can choose to join Gokyo and Everest Base Camp without crossing Cho La , most prefer to cross Cho La Pass due to the stunning views of Himalayas.

Connecting three major places in Khumbu region; Gokyo Lakes, Cho La and Everest Base Camp, this trekking route is a combination of adventure and nature’s wonders.

The Cho La Pass is physically demanding during the winter season and may require crampons. Despite its difficulty during winter, this is an excellent trekking route that connects both Gokyo Lakes / valley and the Everest Base Camp. Visiting two main viewpoints i.e. Gokyo RI and Kalapatthar is demanding but worth reaching the top where you will have marvelous views of numerous Himalayan peaks.

This is an adventurous trekking route that is suitable for mid-experienced trekkers. The route is filled with dramatic landscapes, towering snowy Himalayan peaks like Thamserku, Kangtega, Cho-Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse including the majestic Everest itself. The trek is arranged in a clockwise direction which is equally versatile in an anticlockwise direction as well.

The trail starts from Lukla and goes through Dole, Machhermo and Gokyo before we stop in Thaknak for overnight before crossing the pass. Starting early morning from Thaknak, we will cross Chola Pass and then descend down to Dzongla for another night. We continue towards Lobuche, Gorakshep and Kalapatthar and descend down to Lukla where we will conclude our adventure.

Please refer to the itinerary for day-by-day activities.

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.
