Embark on an exhilarating adventure with the Gokyo Valley, Chola Pass, and Everest Base Camp trek. This incredible journey takes you through the pristine Gokyo Valley, known for its turquoise lakes and breathtaking views. As you ascend, you’ll conquer the challenging Cho la Pass, a high-altitude mountain pass offering panoramic vistas.

The 18-day Gokyo Valley Chola Pass trek takes you through the Himalayas to the highest mountains in the world. This trek is a combination of three popular trekking routes of the Everest region Cho la Pass Trek, Gokyo Lake Trek, and EBC trek. If you’re physically fit and up for the challenge, it’s one of the most incredible experiences of your life. You’ll trek through an astonishing landscape, from forests to glaciers and high passes, and see parts of the Himalayas that most tourists never get the chance to see. 

The EBC trek with Gokyo Valley and Chola Pass is the most extreme trek that the average person can take on. It takes about eight days and covers an average of more than 17,000 feet in elevation. As the highest mountain on Earth Mount Everest, the trek has several complex challenges for many hikers. In addition to the altitude, there are a number of other factors that must be taken into account to ensure that the trek is achieved safely.

The journey to the Everest base camp trek begins with a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The aerial view is pleasant throughout the flight. A crew of guides and porters leads the way to Namche Bazaar, a small Sherpa hamlet. The day at Namche requires a pause in order to adjust to the rising altitude before continuing to Tengboche the next day. With its spiritual and tranquil surroundings, visiting the well-known Tengboche monastery provides peace to the mind. The experience continues with a stop at Dingboche, the next stop for acclimatization.

With each passing day, the trail advances towards Lobuche, Gorakshep, and Everest base camp trek (EBC). The spectacular vistas of the Mountains, glaciers, alpine woods, rocky and steep slopes, pasture fields, and so on will enchant you during the voyage. The trail takes on new significance after seeing Mt. Everest up close to Kala Patthar. After a few days of trekking, you’ll return to Lukla along the same route. The voyage comes to an end when you arrive in Kathmandu.

Nepal Mountain Adventure has the perfect travel packages for you based on your schedules and interests. We supply you with the most up-to-date information and advice about the trek and professional guides and lodging while on the trek. We’d be delighted to take you on an adventurous tour.

While trekking via the side of a frozen lake, reach the top of the pass that is decorated with prayer flags.

From Thangma Riju, the trail further ascends towards Changri Glacier. Along the trail, we can catch the first glimpse of Kala Patthar. From Changri Glacier, the trail further takes us towards Gorak Shep. From Gorak Shep, the trail further leads us toward the Everest Base Camp. The trail from Gorak Shep toward the base camp is straight. The view from the Base camp is really splendid. If we are in the spring season, the base camp looks really interesting with multicolored camps in the grey surrounding. From the base camp, an amazing view of the Nuptse, Khumbuste, and Pumori mountains can be seen. So far, we have accomplished the ultimate objective of our trek. After having a wonderful time at the Base camp, we return back to Gorak Shep for an overnight stay.

Flight Duration: 30-45 min

Max. Elevation: 1,400 m

Accommodation: Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

On this day, we start our journey early in the morning. From Gorak Shep, we will climb towards Kala Patthar to have a splendid view of the sunrise. The sun rising from the tallest mountain in the world, Everest would be a very interesting sight to behold. There would be plenty of time to admire the views around and to click photos but eventually, we need to get down as the weather in the mountain is uncertain. There can be the possibility of chilly wind at any time and if it happens, the temperature might go down to -10-14 C. The magnificent vista of the familiar peaks like Lingtren, Khumbutse, and Changtse from this hilltop is really an interesting sight to behold. After such a remarkable time at Kala Patthar, we descend down to Ghorak Shep for our breakfast. The participant, who plans to visit Everest Base Camp on this day, will have their breakfast early and depart for the Base Camp. The journey from GhorakShep to Base camp is of around 4-5 hours. Upon their return from the Base Camp, we take our lunch together and descend toward the beautiful village of Pheriche for our overnight stay. Note: Those participants who plan to visit Everest base camp today will have early breakfast to start early as the Everest base camp hike takes longer time (4-5 hrs) than the Kala Patthar hike. Upon return back to Gorak Shep, the group will have lunch together; and afternoon time is taken to descend down to Pheriche for a good night’s rest. (B, L, D)

Day 14: Trek from Pheriche to Pangboche and then to Tengboche and to Namche Bazzar (3,440 m/11,280 ft): 5 - 6 hrs

The trek of this day is much easier as we descend toward the lower altitude. The trail follows the same route as we had ascended in the former days of the trek. The trail passes through the beautiful Sherpa villages of Orsho and Shomare. Our trail further takes us to Upper Pangboche. From Pangboche, we continue towards Imja Khola and up through the forest of Debuche. We can also pay a visit to the Debuche Monastery there. This Monastery is very famous as houses nuns from this area. The trail further leads us to Tengboche monastery from Dingboche. It is interesting to note that the Tengboche monastery celebrates the festival of Mani Rimdu on every full moon day. We can also participate in that festival if we are there at that time. The trail further continues towards the hillside full of rhododendron and juniper trees. After crossing this forest, we reach a prayer flag-festooned bridge over the Dudh Koshi River. By and by our trail leads us to the Namche Bazaar. Please do feel free to take as many pictures of the scenery around the Namche Bazaar. At Namche Bazaar, our overnight will be at a lodge.

Day 15Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla: 6 - 8 hrs

The trail of this day descends steeply from Namche Bazaar. Proper precaution should be taken while descending down as our legs shake vehemently in the rocky terrain. Along the trail, we cross numerous suspension bridges of the Dudh Koshi River and its tributaries. From this day, we have already bid goodbye to the chilly mountain air and are going to the charming light breeze of the mountains. Although we are traveling the same route down, we get completely different views. Taking pictures along the trail is really interesting as we pass through the mixture of open plains, rhododendron, and pine forests, and in the distance snow covered peaks. Our journey further leads us through the Sherpa village that has impressive faith in Buddhism. Upon reaching Lukla, our magnificent journey of the mountains comes to an end. You can also celebrate there with some local brews too if you want for the successful completion of your trek.

Day 16Fly from Lukla back to Kathmandu.

This day marks our last day in the Himalayan region of Nepal. Depending upon the schedule of the flight, we get back to Kathmandu from Lukla airport. Once we get back to Kathmandu, our representative will pick you up from there and drop you at your designated hotel. You can take time to rest and relax in the hotel throughout the day. In the evening, you can stroll around the ancient streets of Thamel to buy some souvenirs for your loved ones back in your country. The late evening marks the time for a celebration with the team members of my company. A special dinner program along with some cultural programs would be arranged in one of the best hotels in Thamel by my staff for your successful completion of the trek. The overnight stay for this night would be in one of the best hotels around Thamel.

Day 17International airport drop, final departure.

You will be transferred to the Kathmandu international airport for your final departure to your loving home with an excellent memory and the overwhelming adventure of a lifetime on Everest base camp trekking.
