Gokyo Chola Pass Trekking

This trek gives you the grand tour of the famous Khumbu area. This is a strenuous trek leading to Gokyo Lake and over the Cho La Pass at 5330m leading into the Khumbu valley above Lobuje. The trail continues up to Kalapattar and then back to Lukla via Thengboche and Namche Bazaar.

With eight of the world¡¦s ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountains vistas. Trekking in the Everest area is an awesome experience, not only for its proximity to the world¡¦s highest mountain but also for its friendly Sherpa people, picturesque villages, great variety of cultures and traditions, colourful festivals and monasteries. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery and the legend lives on in the Khumbu.

Strenuous trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes, including four of the world's eight highest peaks: Cho Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516 m) and Everest (8850m). Breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but, culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life.

The following itinery is a suggested outline for a trek which covers the highlights of the Khumbu and the most visited places. Details may vary according to personal taste and time schedule. The schedule caters for tea house trekking, expedition style trekking where porters carry your tent and food, or a combination of both.

Critcally important though is to follow a proper acclimatisation process. This is so often hurried with dire consequences. This is a high altitude trek with considerable time sleeping at high altitudes.
