Everest Base Camp Trek Route & Gokyo Valley Trek Route Crossroad
Trekkers will start trekking as regular Everest Base Camp Trekking in Nepal. Namche Bazaar and the acclimatization are similar to the regular course of EBC Trek. However, trekkers take the route of Mongla Dada instead of Tengboche.
Walking through the green lush forests, waterfalls, and hamlets overlooking the amazing Taboche, Cholatse and Choyou is a feat to achieve. Trekkers will walk through places like Dole and Machhermo before reaching the Gokyo Valley.
Gokyo Lake & Gokyo RI Hiking
Gokyo Lakes has five lakes attached together. We will walk past two lakes and eventually reach the main third lake area also known as Gokyo Lake. Before starting the daunting crossing of the Chola Pass trekkers will get a chance to hike the Gokyo RI. The sight of the more than 2 dozen mountains, including 4 eight-thousanders (Lhotse, Choyou, Makalu & Everest) is marvellous.
Chola Pass Crossing
After Gokyo Valley, the journey heads towards Everest Base Camp. The most difficult hurdle in the Everest Chola Pass Trek journey is the crossing of Chola Pass. This is a beautiful pass with many arduous sections. The icy lakes, glaciers & moraine walking as well as the chill windy atmosphere can offer trekkers the mini mountaineering experience.
Everest Base Camp
Once the pass is crossed and trekkers reach Lobuche via Dzongla the regular Everest Base Camp Trekking journey takes place. Everest Chola Pass Trek follows the same itinerary. For more, please visit our site and explore the Everest Base Camp Trek page.
