Gokyo - Cho la Pass Trek in Everest

Gokyo- Cho La Pass Trek is an awesome excursion and an adventurous experience in the core of the Everest Himalayas. The trek combines two stunning destinations of the Khumbu- the Gokyo Lake and the Everest base camp via the exhilarating Cho La Pass.  The sceneries of the Everest peaks, glaciers and the hidden Lakes take your breath away and you admire the glorious Khumbu with a unique trek experience with the professional guide of Nepal Kameleon Holidays.


Beginning from the Lukla airport, Everest Gokyo Cho La Pass Trek leads you through the heart of the Sherpa land, the Namche Bazaar and Khumjung. Walking further to the Gokyo Lake, the tranquil surrounding lets you feel the awesome experience. This alpine Lake is located below the Gokyo Ri, which is surrounded by the eye-catching sceneries. Hiking to the Gokyo Ri, the wonders of the Everest region further can be explored, including the Ngozumba glacier. The real challenge begins once you begin to ascend towards the Cho La Pass. The panoramic views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and the surrounding peaks can be explored. The trek finally connects the epic trail of Everest base camp and Kalapatthar. The downhill trail to Lukla is dotted by the Sherpa communities and you can explore the abundant Sherpa culture and heritages. Tengbuche, Pangbuche and Khumjung are some among them having remarkable cultural sites.
