Trek Details

Everest Base Camp Via Chola Pass Gokyo trek to the Khumbu region is not an easy one. Based on the foothill of the highest peak of the world, Everest Base Camp Trek has always been one of the best trekking destination to the trekkers. In this customized trek, we move through the Cho La (5,368m) pass and the famous Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Peak (5,480m). The view from the Top of Gokyo provides a 360-degree panoramic view of the entire Khumbu region that is definitely worth some great pictures.

Trekking to EBC was a grand experience. Seeing Everest and its base camp and ten neighboring mountains are amazing! And I also had a brilliant experience on this trip. very fun, had lots of experience, and full of interesting knowledge about different villages and mountains along the way. The trek was amazing. Chola Pass 5420m is strenuous but really rewarding. The views were amazing. There were some hard times, but it’s all worth it as the views are spectacular every day.
