Gokyo Chola Pass Trek

Gokyo Chola Pass trek is another popular trekking package in Khumbu region. Chola Pass Trekking takes you to the foot of Mt. Everest traversing across the high Cho La pass at an altitude of 5420m/17344ft. This is a classic and an incredible trekking, visiting all of the high valleys of the Khumbu with extra time at Gokyo to explore the upper valley.

While we are trekking in Gokyo valley, we will have time to climb Gokyo RI Peak 5360m. From there we can scrutinize the world famous four peaks above 8000m of Cho Oyu (8201m.), Makalu (8463m.), and Lhotse (8,516m.) and Everest (8848m.) exposed above Gokyo.

Chola Pass trekking will lead you to Gokyo Lake and over the Cho La pass at 5430m making a circuit of Tawache (6367m.) and Cholatse (6440m). Promising into the Khumbu valley above Lobuche the trail continues up to Kala Pathar and then back to Lukla via Tengboche and Namche Bazaar. To top off this unique trek we climb Gokyo Ri (5488m/18000ft) for a panoramic view of the greatest mountain scenery in the world - including five 8000m/26000+ft giants and innumerable other peaks of the Khumbu Himal.
