Gokyo Lake and Everest Base Camp via Cho La Pass is one of the oldest trekking trials to the southern face of Everest from Nepal. This timeless classic route was used by Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary when they first successfully completed the Everest expedition in 1953 AD. The trekking trail will lead from Jiri to Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar and is very famous for its iconic scenery of Himalayan and settlements in its lap.
The trek is a combination of trek two destinations which begins from Namche Bazaar, the trade hub of the region. From there we will trek through the beautiful Sherpa settlements of Dingboche, Lobuche, Chukung, Tengboche, and Gorakshep. Another main highlight of the trek is the viewpoint of Kala Patthar from where we can have a panoramic view of soaring white peaks that dominate the eastern skyline. All along the way, and especially from Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp (5.545 m) we can splendid views of the Mount Everest and other equally enchanting majestic peaks above 8,000 m such as Mt. Makalu (8,485 m), Mt. Manaslu (8,163 m), and Mt. Kanchenjunga (8,586 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m) among others. We will also get a unique chance to cross the Ngozumpa Glacier, the biggest one in the region. We will also visit some historic monasteries while trekking through the trial in the Dingboche and Tengboche region.
From there we will trek to the mystical valley of Gokyo. Gokyo Valley is famous for its 5 beautiful lakes. The emerald and pristine lakes and the reflection of the peaks that guard over them is a truly magnificent sight and one of the main highlights of the trek. We will also climb the Gokyo Ri peak which lies at an elevation of 5,357 m and from here we can have a 360-degree panoramic view of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and other mountains. We can add new places to augment your experience even further on your request. The most suitable time for Gokyo Lake and EBC trek via Cho La Pass is in autumn (October and November) and spring (April and May). The months are selected with consideration of factors like climate and visibility.
