You are here Home » Nepal » Everest Region » Trek from Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp

The Gokyo Lake, Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp Trek is an ideal trek that provides plenty of opportunities to enjoy the breathtaking view of Everest. It also includes several other similar peaks and explores the Buddhist monasteries at the world’s highest elevation.

This unique trek takes you to the home of the legendary local community on the foothill of the world’s highest peak, Mt. Everest. This 18 days trek follows the highly praised trekking route through the Dudh Koshi to its water source of the Gokyo Lake, to the west of the Everest Base Camp. 

To join this trek, you will start from Lukla and trek to Namche Bazar. After 2 nights in Namche Bazar, you will trek to the Gokyo Valley. After a few days of the trek, you will reach Gokyo lake. Next, you will explore the valley, including a summit to the Gokyo Peak (5483 metres). The summit offers a fantastic panoramic view of Cho Oyo, Everest, and Makalu from the peak. Furthermore, travelling through Khumbu Himal, Gokyo valley, the Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp will reward you with the most dramatic landscape views. 

You can treat the trek as one of the most adventurous treks in the Himalayas as it follows the route via a high pass into Khumbu, i.e. Cho La Pass, at 5330 metres. As you cross the Cho-La Pass, you will return 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 forever be remembered by me. Your staff in Kathmandu was always there to ensure everything was running smoothly. After talking to those on the trail which did not have guides or porters about their difficulties, I cannot imagine even attempting the trip without my wonderful help.

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 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 exchanging initial polite, informative emails, good Trip Advisor reports and previous friends who liked their services, we chose Nepal Hiking — we haven’t regretted our decision for one moment. Bhairam answered all our enquiries promptly, we were given all the necessary information before travelling, and their service from beginning to end was faultless.

They also provided us with 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 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. Like five years ago in the Annapurna region, there was nothing to complain about.

In a word, everything was perfect again. Thank you very much for our trip’s fantastic arrangement, planning and organisation. The service was great and 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, always nice, kind and helpful. Once, I struggled one day; they even carried my small backpack. Eventually, we became friends very soon.

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

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

Kind regards
