Gokyo Chola Pass trek is one of the most popular trekking circuits of the Mt. Everest region. The Chola Pass is at an altitude of 5330 meters that take you to Everest Base Camp (EBC). But in this trek, we will not go to Everest base camp but towards Gokyo valley and reach Gokyo Lake. From here we move to Gokyo RI to see the summit of Mt. Everest along with Makalu and Cho Oyu. We come next to Dzongla and move towards Gorak Shep and ascent to Kala Patthar for close up view of Mt. Everest and its surroundings.
The sunrise view of Kala Patthar is simply breathtaking. The Khumbu glacier is seen winding down the mountains. Then we trek down to Labuche then Debuche and finally, the bustling village of Sherpas in the Solukhumbu region called the Namche Bazaar. From here we take a mountain flight to Lukla and arrive at Kathmandu. We do sightseeing and shopping and enjoy a farewell program and dinner. The next day is the end and we depart with happy memories of Gokyo Chola Pass trek on the way to our home or connecting destination.
