Gokyo Cho La Pass EBCTrek is one of the adventurous trekking trails of the Khumbu region of Nepal. Cho La is a summit pass located at an elevation of 5420 meters in the northeastern part of Nepal. Dzongla and Thagnak villages lie to the east and west part of Cho La Pass respectively.

The Gokyo Cho La Pass Trekking combines the three trekking routes such as Gokyo Trek, Cho La Pass Trek and the Everest Base Camp Trek. These are the prime highlights of this trekking trail. The route is complemented by the Sherpa Villages, their cultures, and the monasteries.

Everest base camp and Gokyo lakes trek begins quickly after a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek goes along the Dudh Koshi Valley and takes you at the major homelands of Sherpa i.e. Namche Bazaar. This place is best for acclimatization due to the availability of facilities as equal to the city area. It is best for exploring too.

The trek continues to Gokyo Valley bypassing many settled Sherpa Villages through the forests of rhododendron and the birch. Gokyo is a small village, located 4750 meters above sea level. It is considered one of the highest settlements in Nepal and the world.

Gokyo Ri trek at an elevation of 5357 meters is amazing. It offers the wonderful views of glaciated Gokyo Lakes and the four tallest mountains in the world like Mt. Everest (8,848 m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Makalu (8,463 m) and the Mt. Cho Yo (8,201 m).

Then the trek ascends to Gorek Shep. It is a little bit challenging because you need to walk on the rocky and slippery moraines and cross the Cho La Pass. While crossing, the pass offers the majestic views of Cholatse peak, Lobuche and Ama Dablam and other neighboring peaks.

The ascending to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar is also difficult, but our experienced trekking guides lead you in a very careful as well as in the easiest way. However, Everest Base Camp and the Kala Patthar show the extraordinary views of Mt. Everest and other snow-capped peaks. It is truly remarkable.

The trekkers should know the Gokyo Chola Pass weather before having a trek. It's a kind of challenging trail as the rock falls even the weather is in good condition.
