Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
1650

Overview

The Himalayas of Nepal are viewed all over the world as the epitome of majestic beauty and grandeur, gifting the country with a number of natural resources as well as a unique identity as the home of Mt. Everest. However, the mountaineers all over the world also know the Himalayas as the perfect adventure trekking destination. The Everest Base camp Cho la Pass Trekking is one of the most popular treks in the region with hundreds of tourists flocking towards the area every year.

The major highlights of the trek are the Base camp (the starting point of the Everest expedition) and the Gokyo valley (a beautiful site in the region) that allows a close-up encounter of the Himalayan range. With a strong determination and zeal for adventure, you can reach the two vantage points Kalapathar (5550 m) and Gokyo RI (5357 m), from where you can enjoy the remarkable views of Mount Everest. With superb mountain viewpoints and a thrilling mountain pass to conquer, Nepal Eco Adventure welcomes you to experience a thrilling holiday in the Nepalese Himalayas.

Along with Mount Everest, 4 other highest peaks are located in the Khumbu region and the Everest Base Camp Cho-La pass trek allows you to enjoy all these snow capped mountains right in front of your eyes. Mount Everest (8848m), Mt Lhotse (8516m), Mt Makalu (8485m). Cho-Oyu (8201 m), Nuptse, Amadablam, Thamserku, Pumori and Khumbutse are the highlighting peaks of the Himalayas that surround the valleys and glaciers of the area providing a scenic trip through the Khumbu region. As a tourist, apart from the valleys, lakes, glaciers, rivers, terraced cliffs and forests, one can also indulge in the culture, customs, religious ceremonies and lifestyles of the Sherpa people and get a better understanding of the people through the numerous historical monuments.

While Sagarmatha( Nepali name of Mount Everest) attracts a number of local and foreign tourists throughout the year, Sagarmatha National Park is contributing towards the conservation of the various exotic flora and fauna in the area that are very important for the environmental balance. The national park has been a popular tourist attraction while being Eco friendly and controlling illegal human activities. The variation in vegetation ranges from barren lands to very high alpine bushes. Animals like Yaks, Jokyos, mules and horses are domesticated especially for transportation purposes whereas endangered animals like Musk Deer, Himalayan black Bear, Wild mountain Goat, Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep, Rhesus Monkey, common Langoor, Mountain Hawk, Pheasant, Lophophorus and others are protected in the area which provide a diverse and rich natural experience to the visitors.

Day 3
Fly to Lukla and trek to Phakding.

We board a flight to Lukla early in the morning. It takes 30 minutes to arrive at Lukla airport. There we will be introduced to our porter. Then, we will stop for breakfast after which we will begin our first day’s walk to Phakding, a fairly easy 3 hours walk through the Dudhkosi valley. We will head north from the airstrip to Chheplung (2700m). Here we will cross the Thado Koshi River on a local-style suspension bridge. Just past the bridge, we can see the peak Kusum and Kanggru (6367m), which are the most difficult trekking peaks to climb. Beyond the ThadoKoshi, the trail climbs a bit towards Ghat (2590m), then we will cross a ridge marked with painted Mani stones and climb to Phakding where we will stay overnight.

Day 4
Trek to Namche Bazaar (3440m)

We start our second day of trek through the Valley of Dudhkosi River. We cross the Dudhkosi River five times on the exciting suspension bridges laden with prayer flags on the way to Namche. After we cross the last bridge, there is a steep climb up to Namche where the trail gradually leads up to Jorsale. It is a 2 and a half hour climb up to Namche with two view points on the way. We can have a mesmerizing view of Mt Everest on a clear day. At Jorsale, we enter the Sagarmatha National park where we will need to verify our permits. After 5 or 6 hours of hard walking, we reach the main trading centre, Namche bazaar.

Day 5
Acclimatization day at Namche.

Acclimatization is very important before proceeding higher to avoid altitude sickness. We will be taken for a day’s hike through the villages of Khunde and Khumjung and come back to Namche through the Everest view hotel Khumjung. We can see the head of a Yeti in the monastery of the area. We can also visit the bakery at world’s highest altitude. We get to enjoy the panoramic views of Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many other mountains on a fair day. Even the view from Everest View hotel is very impressive. We start with a steep one-hour climb to the Syangboche airstrip (3790m), from where we will slowly ascend towards Khunde passing numerous chorten (stone Buddhist monuments). From Khunde, we follow the trail eastwards to Khumjung, the largest village in Khumbu, at the foot of the sacred peak Khumbila. After enjoying lunch at Khumjung, we follow a gradual climb to Everest View Hotel where we will enjoy the splendid mountain views. Then we descend towards Namche (3540m).

Day 6
Trek to Tengboche (3790m).

Our route for today to Tengboche weaves in and out of side valleys, making small ups and downs, to the teashops of Kenjoma, and joins the trail from Khumjung just before a collection of Mani stones. The views of Everest and Ama Dablam are excellent from this part of the trek. We pass the small settlement of Sanasa from where the trail drops towards Phunkithanga (3250m). From here the trail climbs steeply through pine forests and around Mani stones as it follows the side of a hill to the saddle on which the monastery of Tengboche sits at 3870m. The view from here is rightly deemed to be one of the world’s most magnificent sceneries. Kwangde (6187m), Tawachee (6542m), Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse (8501m), Amadablam, Kantega and Thamserku provide an inspiring panorama as the Himalayan giants. We will spend the night in Tengboche village (5 hrs).

Day 7
Trek to Dingboche (4350m).

We descend through a beautiful forest then cross the Imja Khola and trek through the village of Pangboche. The route continues through summer pastures to Dingboche. We will spend the night at Dingboche. It is a very relaxing village with lots of mountain views. This is very easy walk and takes about 3 to 4 hours.

Day 8
Acclimatization day at Dingboche. Day trip to Chhukung, back to Dingboche.

We will start around 8:30 after breakfast. The trek up to Chhukung is quite nice and easy. We get a really nice view of most of the mountains specially Ama Dablam. The view from Chhukung and further up the valley on the moraines towards Island Peak is tremendous. To the south-west, the eastern face of Amadablam provides an unusual view of this picturesque peak. This short trek is one of the highlights of the trek. It is a fast trip back down the valley to Dingboche for the night. While going back to Dingboche we might encounter strong winds.

Day 9
Trek to Lobuche (4950m).

We start with a climb to the chorten trail that is a gentle climb for about 1 and half hours. Then we get to Thugla at 4600m with a tea house where we will have lunch before climbing the steep part of the day’s trek for about one and a half hours. We start to get close to high mountains like Mt. Pumori and Mt. Nuptse after a while as we proceed towards Lobuche where only basic accommodation and food is provided. Then we trek along a broad valley floor to Thugla, leaving behind the Trekkers Aid Post at Pheriche at 4240 m. A western volunteer doctor, supported by The Himalayan Rescue Association is stationed here and offers treatment and consultation to trekkers as we continue up the valley gaining altitude. When we come out of the valley, we descend to the yak pastures at Lobuche. Overnight at Lodge. The day’s trip takes about 5 and a half hour’s walk.

Day 10
Trek to Gorakshep (5160m) and Hiking to Everest base camp (5545m.), back to Gorakshep.

This morning, we will take a 2 hour’s hike up to Gorakshep. First part is nice and easy but one hour later the trail starts to get harder which is compensated by the really nice view of big walls formed by Everest, Nuptse and many other mountains. Once we climb about 150m then trail gets better again. Short after we will get to the moraine. Finally we get to 5160m, the world’s highest settlement at Gorakshep. Once we have lunch, we begin our walk to Everest base camp. We will be walking on side ridge of the Khumbu glacier. After walking on the ridge for about one and half hours, we cross the Glacier and into the Everest base camp area. Today we reach Everest base camp at an altitude of 5360m. We will be able to meet and talk to other mountain climbers at the base camp. We can get a good view of Khumbu glacier and Khumbu Ice fall. From there we can also see the big crevasses in the climbing way. After appreciating our own efforts and photographing the achievements, we start our way back to Gorakshep. (6-7 hour)

Day 11
Early morning climb up to Kalapather for sunrise then trek to Dzonglha (4830m)

We will start the 1.5 hour’s hike to Kalapathar early in the morning to get sunrise over the Everest and other mountain. We spend some time enjoying the sunrise on the splendid Himalayan ranges, relishing in a unique view and experience and head back to Gorekshep breakfast then continue to Dzolgla. From Gorekshep -Lobuche takes about 2 hours and another 2 hours hike will take us to Dzongla from Lobuche. Total today hiking will be around 7 hours. Dzongla is the only place where we can spend the night before the Chola pass.

Day 12
Cross the Chola pass (5420m) then trek down to Tagnag (4695m)

Early morning after breakfast, we start our walk from Dzongla to the Cho-la pass. The walk over the glacier is an enjoyable experience if we can make the trip during the best season otherwise excess snow makes it impossible to cross the pass. As the darkness returns we trek down to Tagnag to spend the night there.

Day 13
Trek to Gokyo (4800m) then visit fifth lake back to Gokyo.

It is a short day trek as we reach Gokyo in about 2-3 hours just in time to have lunch. Then we spend the rest of the day exploring the Gokyo valley. We can also visit the glaciers and turquoise lakes of the Gokyo valley while witnessing the spellbinding views of the Himalayan giants like Everest, Cho-Oyu, Lhotse Makalu and others. We spend the night in Gokyo.

Day 14
Early morning climb up Gokyo Ri then trek down to Dole (4200m)

The upwards trek is quite a feat to Gokyo RI. Every step of the steep climb is worth it once we reach the pass and see the astonishing views of the Gokyo valley, the Ngozumpa glacier and a panoramic scene of the Khumbu Himalayan giants. After spending some time there, we make our way down to Dole where we spend the night.

Day 15
Trek to Namche bazaar.

The trek from Dole to Namche Bazaar takes about six hours. During the course of the day, we cross the Khumjung village while walking on the base of Mount Amadablam. Once we reach Namche Bazaar, we rest and spend the night there.

  1. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    I did the Everest base camp via Chola Pass with Nepal Eco Adventure and it had been a wonderful experience! First, the owner Chhatra has been very responsive and knowledgable in answering my questions and arranging my booking. He was a guide before and therefore he knows the mountain very well which makes him a perfect person to talk to if you have any doubts in your mind. Second, my guide Keshab and Dhana are wonderful. They literally made this trip a hassle free for me. Keshab is very experienced in taking care of a group and caring towards everyone's condition. He is an amazing guide and we all like him a lot. Dhana is my guide and he has one of the most caring and sweet personalities I have ever seen. He would carry my backpack and encourage me to keep going whenever I feel exhausted in the mountain. I wouldn't be able to complete the trek without Keshab and Dhana. The supporting guide Dulip and our porters are all fantastic as well. Last but no least, the company takes care of everything. They prepare fruit every night (so far we are the only group who get fresh fruit at the base camp), measure our blood oxygen level, help us change our flights in Lukla, etc. Everyone of them are super helpful and wants you to have a wonderful memory. They respect the mountain and the environment. I will have no doubts in recommending Nepal Eco Adventure to anyone who wants to go on a trek in Nepal.
  2. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    Firstly - DO THIS ROUTE. I highly recommend including Gokyo Lakes and the Cho la pass into your Everest Base Camp trek – It’s only 3 extra days trekking and you will not regret it - the views are so much more beautiful than EBC, more challenging yes, but ultimately more rewarding. We had the most incredible journey with Nepal Eco. Before starting the trip we knew we wanted to trek with a group of people, to meet more travellers and make new friends. Though as fewer people choose to do the Gokyo/ Cho-la part of the trek, this proved difficult to find. After emailing multiple companies, Chhatra promptly came up with the best option for us, we joined a group of 11 others up to EBC then split off with a private guide to cross the Cho-la and climb Gokyo Ri. This meant we got the best of both worlds, we trekked with a group for the majority of the trip but also had the luxury of a private guide to take extra care of us and stick to our own pace. So, we were privileged to trek alongside 4 of Nepal Eco’s best guides Keshab, Bimal, Lakpa and Ram. Keshab was phenomenal, he always had my back, he stayed at the back of the group to support whoever was slower (often being me), and when I got symptoms of altitude sickness, he knew all the right things to do. He tailored the experience by balancing both the groups & the individuals specific needs to make sure we all made it to EBC, and we all did! His company along the trek was invaluable, a very personable guide/ friend and also hilarious – when I wasn’t struggling for breath I was laughing my head off. Bimal, our private guide, was very attentive to our needs, always making sure we had an extra blanket, were well fed and warm and taught us so much about the land and culture. Lakpa’s laugh was infectious and he brought so much positive energy and support to the group. Ram wasn’t even our guide, he was trekking with a private tour alongside us, yet he still constantly engaged and supported us along the way. We had the best chats and laughs with all our guides. They were all extremely knowledgeable and their primary focus was our health and wellness - as Bimal would always say “if we were okay, then he was okay". And of course we couldn’t have done it all without our porter Bhala, everyday having our bags clean and ready for us before we got to the tea houses. From Australia, we had plenty of options to go with Intrepid/ World Expeditions/ Gadventures or other Niche companies. We chose Nepal Eco for multiple reasons: 1) The Australian companies didn’t offer the Anti-clockwise route: EBC –> Cho la –> Gokyo, (only the clockwise route) and from our research we had learnt that Anti-clockwise is the much smarter route to take for adjusting to altitude. 2) We wanted our money to go towards the Nepal economy, rather than profits going to Australian companies. 3) Their reviews were great and were the highest rated Nepalese company. 4) Their overall tour cost was cheaper. 5) They included all meals, accommodation and extra gear (USE THEIR GEAR – it’s so warm) AND still managed to be cheaper than Oz companies. (Do take into account their tipping expectations, especially if doing a private tour. It’s definitely a well-deserved tip but can come as a surprisingly high extra cost to your trip). 6) They carried an Oxymeter to constantly measure our oxygen levels and see how well we were dealing with the high altitude. After completing the trek, we definitely made the right choice and are so grateful we decided to go with them. Anti-clockwise definitely proved to be the better route to take, especially when crossing the Cho-La Pass. We had the most experienced, attentive, generous and thoughtful guides who made this a trip of a lifetime. Thank you to everyone at Nepal Eco, I hope to trek with you again! MY EXTRA TREKKING TIPS: - Buy a solar power charger for phone/camera (our battery pack died in the cold, even in sleeping bag) - Buy a camel back for water, it's so worth it! (Though bring a bottle also for when water freezes in cold temperatures) - Use a sunglasses chain - Use sun and wind protection. Sun and wind give you headaches on trek, use preventative measures. - Buy good trekking shoes, wear them in beforehand (bring blister protection also) - Take Diamox when you START to feel effects of altitude, not beforehand. OR take half the dose from before starting the trek and then when you start to feel the effects take the full dose. If you are already taking full amount of Diamox, and then you still get symptoms up high alt - you have nothing else to help your symptoms. - Bring cards and a book, you will have spare time. - Layer your clothing - merino wool thermals are better than synthetic for smell and breathability. - Bring antibacterial wipes to wash self and any personal medications/ supplements, - Bring Voltaren/ deep heat for any muscle/ knee pain. - Check your iron levels well before trek and supplement if necessary. - Do some training in high altitude chambers if you have access to these. - Buy a sim card in Kathmandu for data (super easy and cheap), though it will probably only work for about 6 or 7 of the 15 days, so you will still have to pay for WIFI on trek. - DRINK LOTS OF WATER.
  3. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    We trekked to Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, Chola Pass and Gokyo as a private group of six in April 2017. With us was a friendly and capable team: head guide Keshab, assistant guide Ram and porters Delip, Kamal and Arjun. Keshab is excellent - even as he bantered with us along the way, he would also be attentive and observant. Throughout our journey, it was clear his no. 1 priority was safety, and this is something that gives us confidence and made a tough trek enjoyable. Importantly, Keshab's local knowledge... his strong relationship with lodge owners, his experience of the route (how we should pace ourselves so that we reach EBC at the best possible hour, for example), advice on diets (why meat is discouraged, etc)... is invaluable. On our return trek to Lukla, he made adjustments to our two night stops because of the weather forecast, ensuring we would have the best possible chance of getting on a plane back to Kathmandu. With him in charge, we had as close to a guaranteed itinerary as we could get in the mountains. I really appreciate the team's efforts and would highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventure - if possible, with Keshab as your guide.
  4. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    My fiancé and I trekked this route with Nepal Eco Adventures in April 2018. We couldn't have been happier with our experience! Right from the beginning everything went smoothly. Our guide met us at the airport to pick us up from the airport to take us to the hotel. At the end of the trip the company provided transportation back to the airport even though we decided to stay a few extra days in Kathmandu. The trekking company also provided some equipment such as trekking poles, sleeping bags, duffles, and jackets free of charge if needed. Our guide Raj was incredible! He went above and beyond to make sure all of our group members needs were met. He was very positive and encouraging throughout the entire trek. He always kept an eye on how we were feeling and strived to help out with any ailments as he could. At the end of the trek we ended up missing our flight back from Lukla as the airport was so chaotic and we missed the call for our plane. We were panicking, but it turns out Raj was watching to make sure we got on our flight. When he saw that we missed it, he went and got us new plane tickets for the next flight out with no extra charge! We were really lucky to have him as a guide. This trek has truly been the adventure of a lifetime and we would not hesitate to trek with this company and Raj again! With this company we were treated like high valued costumers, and more importantly like friends.
  5. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    We had an excellent trip to Everest Base Camp, Chola Pass and Gokyo Lakes with Nepal Eco Adventure, as a private group of six. We chose to stay at the Yak and Yeti in Kathmandu. Besides having a brilliant name, it is also a comfortable 4-star hotel with a pool and big gardens. Some of us also managed to fit in an in-house massage on our last day in Kathmandu after the trek! The hotel is in a quiet area despite being walking distance from the hustle and bustle of Thammel. The 16-day trek wouldn't have been so successful and so much fun without the expertise of our head guide Keshab and the toils of the rest of the team, Ram (assistant guide), Dilip (porter), Kamal (porter) and Arjun (porter). Being among some of world's tallest mountains is an incredible experience in itself, but what made this trip truly remarkable was how the 6 trekkers, 2 guides and 3 porters came together as a team. We helped each other along the way (everyone's health and safety was priority), we bantered, and celebrated every successful ascend/crossing over rounds of Pringles! Keshab, with his many years of experience in guiding, was extremely observant to our needs, physical and mental condition. We trekked at a good pace, and he prepared us in advance whenever we had to push at a quicker pace (e.g getting into EBC before other teams, so we easily got good photos without other trekkers in the background!). He adjusted our itinerary to ensure that we maximized our chances of getting good views and early flights! Keshab also was able to engage each of us in different topics according to what we showed interest in. All-in-all the trip was a massive success and we wouldn't have had this trip done any other way!
  6. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
    I completed an EBC+Chola Pass trek in early April 2017 and I can strongly recommend the services of Nepal Eco Adventure and Chhatra, company's director. The booking was easy and Chhatra promptly provided answers to all my queries.Walking poles, a warm down jacket and a warm sleeping bag were provided for the trek by the company and turned out to be very reliable. The trek itself was really well organised, porters always did a great job and went ahead of the group to book the accommodation.Our guides, Arun and Basu, spoke excellent English, were very knowledgeable and great characters all round. They were always helpful and accommodated all the needs of the group (slower/faster walking, photos, breaks, etc.). We stayed in the best possible teahouses with no major issues. Our group happened to be grounded in Lukla on the last day and Chhatra and the guides did a great job to get us on the flight the next day, even though there were loads of other stranded tourists. Overall the experience made me want to come back to Nepal and do another trek in future, likely with Nepal Eco Adventure!
  7. Everest Base Camp – Cho-La Pass – Gokyo Trek
     My wife and I visited Nepal in December 2014. Chhatra at Nepal Eco Adventures did an amazing job organizing a spectacular, unforgettable trek from Jiri to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo. Ram and Santosh, our guides for the trek, were fantastic and went out of their way to ensure we were safe and happy at all times. I have no hesitation in recommending Nepal Eco Adventures as a very professional and experienced tour operator that offers an outstanding service.
