Everest Base Camp-Chola Pass-Gokyo Trek is an adventurous trek in the Khumbu region. Everest Base Camp and Gokyo valley are the locations of this trek via technical Cho La Pass. Starting the trek from the classical Everest trekking route from Lukla, it provides a different experience walking with the modest trail with the attractive sceneries all around. The trek starts after a flight of around 30 minutes from Kathmandu to Lukla. Additionally, discovering the Sherpa culture and heritages, you trek all the way to Everest Base Camp via Namche Bazar, Pangboche, Tengboche and Dingboche. The stunning vistas of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam and many other snow-capped mountains from the maximum height of Kala Patthar is something you will relish the most at the time of trek. 

The adventurous trek does not stop there yet as you make ascent to Gokyo via Cho La Pass. Chola Pass (5420m) is a technical portion that remains snowy most of the time. The wonders of the snow covered mountains of the Everest region are just magnificent. After you trek to Gokyo valley, you head to discover the stunning Himalayan beauties from Gokyo Ri, aka Gokyo Peak at 5357m. Together with the Himalayan panoramas, the view of Ngozumba glacier, the biggest glacier in Nepal and Gokyo five lakes astonish you. Then you trek down all the way to Lukla via Machermo and Dole. 

The multiple times at the time the trial passes over suspension bridges over Dudh Koshi River and climbs the steep hill. It runs alongside a terrace farm and over the rough trails with sharp rocks to arrive at Everest Base Base Camp. The trek gets exceedingly challenging from the base camp with terminal moraines and ice sheets. The trail to Gokyo walks through Cho La Pass at 5,420 meters, crossing through Ngozumpa glacier in the east. This mountain pass joins two villages of Thanknak and Dzonglha, that are by peaks and lofty hills. Binjuli Adventure provides Everest Base Camp-Chola Pass-Gokyo Trek with best services.
