Tour Details

This ideal trek provides plenty of opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking view of Everest including several other similar peaks and to explore the Buddhist monasteries settled at the world’s highest elevation.

This unique trek takes you to the home of the legendary Sherpa people, on the foothill of the highest peak of the world, the Mt. Everest at 8848 meters. This 18 days trek follows the highly praised trekking route through the Dudh Koshi to its source the Gokyo Lake to the west of the Everest Base Camp. The excellent trek gives the benefit to summit Gokyo Peak (5483 meters) offering a fantastic panoramic view of Cho Oyo, Everest and Makalu etc.. During traveling through Khumbu Himal, Gokyo valley and the Chola Pass, one is rewarded with some of the most dramatic landscapes. The trek can be treated as one of the adventurous trek in the Himalayas as it follows the route via high pass into Khumbu i.e. Cho La Pass at 5330 meters. As we cross the Cho-La Pass, we then return back to Lukla following the route through Everest Base Camp, Kala Pathar and Tyangbouche monastery, Khumjung village and Namche Bazar.

I just wanted to thank you and your wonderful staff for my incredible trip to Gokyo Ri, Chola Pass, Kalapathar and Everest Base Camp. It was the best trip of my life. I especially want to thank my guide, Ram, and porter, Santos, who made the trip much easier than I could ever imagine. The scenery was incredible and will be forever be remembered by me. Your staff in Kathmandu was always there to make sure that every-thing was running smoothly. After talking to those on the trail who did not have guides or porters about their difficulties, I cannot imagine even attempting the trip without the wonderful help that I had.

I also had a great time on the tour of Kathmandu, river rafting and Chitwan National Park. It was a great way to end my trip. The hotels in Kathmandu and in Chitwan were especially nice. I did not expect such luxury at such a great price.

I look forward to returning to Nepal to do the Annapurna Circuit. I look forward to seeing everyone again.

Thanks again.

Six friends chose to trek to Gokyo Lakes, Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp. We looked at several companies and after exchange of initial polite informative emails, good Trip Advisor reports and previous friends who liked their services we chose Nepal Hiking — haven’t regretted our decision for one moment. Bhairam answered all our enquiries promptly, we were given all necessary information before travelling and their service from beginning to end was faultless, cannot think of anything to complain about. We were even taken to a complimentary Traditional Nepalese Dinner. Our guides and porters were friendly, charming and helpful and we heard about the lengthy training they must do before becoming a guide. At all times we felt safe. Thank you Bhairam and everyone in the company very very much.

Dear Tilak,

I have been travelling a lot, but the trekking trip to Gokyo Lake, Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp was the best holiday, I have ever spent in my life. Like five years ago in the Annapurna region, there was nothing at all to complain.

In one word, everything was perfect again. Thank you very much for the fantastic arrangement, planning and organisation of our trip. The service was great and absolutely professional.

Every day we could enjoy spectacular views, sceneries and landscapes. I will never forget these days in my life.

A special Thank You also to our guide Lok and our porter Raj. They were the best possible duo you can imagine, always nice, kind and helpful. Once I was struggling on one day, they even carried my small backpack. Eventually we became friends very soon.

This was our second time in Nepal, but definitely not the last one. And of course you will arrange and plan our third trip as well. There is no doubt about it ! Thank you very much again for everything. I really do appreciate your kindness and hospitality.

Take care and all the best. See you soon again.

Kind regards
