Gokyo Chola Pass is one of the major highlights of Everest region Trekking.Filled with glaciers, turquoise lakes and enchanting mountain scenery, the Gokyo valley (north of Khumjung) offers an exciting alternative to the traditional Everest Base Camp approach. The massiv Cho Oyu (8153m) and Gyachung Kang (7922m) dominate the head of this rugged canyon. Countless other summits loom to either side. This trek is perfect for the committed trekker who wants to see every aspect of the Khumbhu region. In addition to an ascend of the 5400m GOKYO Ri peak, we take you to the Chola pass which links Gokyo to the main Everest trek at Lobuche; the summit of Kala Pathar for close up views of Everest’s South- West Face and a traverse to the pretty Imja Tse valley and the imposing wall of the Lhotse face. Finally, we return down to Lukla via the famous Buddhist monastery at Tengboche. Please note the narrow Gokyo valley rises quickly in altitude and therefore some of our trekking days are very short. This is vital if everyone is to be properly acclimatised before tackling Gokyo –Ri and Cho La.
