Then the continuation of their trekking takes them at the Base Camp of the world’s tallest mountain i.e. Everest Base Camp where they immerse into the very closer views of towering peaks including Mt. Everest.

The Cho La Pass is the most demanding trekking destination. It is a bit difficult Pass to cross. However, trekkers’ ascending takes them on top of it where they are welcomed by the awestruck views of Himalayan giants.
