EVEREST CHO LA PASS TREK
Now ready to begin the Everest Cho La Pass Trek from Kathmandu. The Everest Base Camp, Cho La pass with Gokyo Lake are completely secluded from the chaos of the capital city. The serenity is well preserved in the quaint mountains giving the peaceful mind ever. An amazing flight to Lukla takes you to the Khumbu region of Nepal. After arriving at Lukla, we will enter via trek up to Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park via the Dudh Koshi valley and move ahead to our dream destination To Cho La Pass via Everest Base Camp crossing Namche Bazar ( Gateway of Everest ). We will have the immense peace while traveling into the valley with turquoise colored Gokyo lakes. The longest glacier, Ngozumpa glacier along with the Gokyo lakes from Gokyo RI is simply awesome. Also, the excitement of passing over the icy trail along Cho La Pass is a lifetime rocking experience.
The thrill of being on the top of the world along with trek to the Gokyo Ri crossing the Cho La pass and stand on Everest Base Camp is one of the best rewards of the adventurous trip to the Everest Region. To explore the Sagarmatha National Park, the traditional Sherpa villages, to allure the beauty of the majestic Himalayan ranges, to acculturate the customs and traditions of Tibetans, to adopt the lifestyles of the local residents are the amazing experiences gathered during this Everest Cho La Pass trek. However, this trip to Everest region with following the Everest Trekking Trail Gokyo Lake - Gokyo Ri - Cho La Pass - Everest Base Camp (EBC) and viewpoint of Kalapatthar is tiresome but an exciting and memorable one as a lifetime reward.

Everest Weather Note
Please note this. Most of the trekking of Everest Region starts with the flights into Lukla Airport also know as Tenzing-Hillary Airport and World’s most dangerous airport because of High Altitude and Himalayan Weather. Flight to Lukla is only available from Kathmandu Airport and sometimes Flight to Lukla - Kathmandu may be delayed due to un-flyable weather conditions, either windy atmosphere around Lukla or in the foggy Lamjuro ( Hill near Lukla Airport ) and Kathmandu. Trekking Trail Nepal request you to assure that our Trekking staff in Lukla or in Kathmandu Airport will be doing everything possible to manage the inconvenience caused by Flight Cancellation if this happens on your Everest Region Trekking. Your patience in the sometimes trying circumstances which can occur will be greatly appreciated. If the flight is canceled more than 3 days to Lukla we may change the itinerary for the betterment of the trip. Alternatively, we may charter a chopper/helicopter at extra cost if you agree.
Nepal is very remote part of the world so one the trails please don’t expect very luxury service like in the US or Europe, although our efforts will be there. The guesthouses are quite basic and simple. We will try our best to make your trip as smooth as possible and of course, we will try our best to make everything in order. However sometimes because of the communication problems, difficulties because of high altitude, tiredness etc. or because of rough terrain, we may not reach in the camps in time.
