Everest.

Gokyo Chola pass trekking 

As usual in other Gokyo chola pass Everest base camp trekking packages the trip starts from Kathmandu in a mountain flight taking you to the small Sherpa town Lukla. The joyous yet adventurous mountain flight acts as the trailers for trekking in Khumbu region. The trekking starts from Lukla and ends in Lukla before taking the flight back to Kathmandu. The Namche Bazaar stay would be of two days for the acclimatization process. The acclimatization is very essential in order to avoid any risk of high altitude sickness. The hiking to the picturesque view point in Namche at the world’s highest located hotel Everest View or trek to Khumjung the Sherpa villa would take place for the acclimatization. Once you have acclimatized the trip moves towards Gorakshep passing by spiritual Tengboche (famous for monasteries and Buddhists prayer chants as well as gorgeous views of mountains as featured in our Everest View Trek package) and Dingboche. The short hike to Everest Base Camp is another highlight of the trekking in Everest region. The amazing Khumbu glacier and the gigantic Mount Everest closely would enthrall you. The morning hike to Kalapathhar for the sun rising from the casement of mountains kissing its tip is another heavenly experience in offer for you. After that the trek moves towards the most daunting trail part of this trekking. Chola Pass trail is often covered by the snow and it is highly advised for the trekkers to be close with their trekking leaders. After Cho la Pass the trek moves to Gokyo Lake.

The last segment is fairly uphill trek till you reach Namche Bazar.  Overnight in Namche Bazaar.

 

Day 05: Namche Bazaar: Rest day

Today is an acclimatization day. You will spend exploring and learning about the sights and sounds of Namche Bazaar.

Afterwards return to Namche and spend evening in cozy Namche cafes or pubs. Overnight in Namche. 

Day 06: Namche Bazaar to Phortse Thanga (3,680m/12,073ft): 6km, 5-6 hours

We climb the Khumjung hill and descend to the east of the village down the broad valley leading to the Dudh Koshi from where the route turns north. There are two trails and our guide will choose the best option for us to follow. There is a chorten on the ridge top at 3973 m which descends from Mt. Khumbila (5761 m). We visit Mongla, the birthplace of the re-incarnated Lama of Rongbuk Monastery of Tibet who is believed to have introduced Buddhism in the Khumbu region of Nepal. The trail descends in a series of steep switchbacks down a sandy slope to the Dush Koshi. We stay overnight in Phortse Tanga, near the river.

Day 07: Phortse Thanga to Machhermo (4,470m/ 14,663ft): 10km, 4-5 hours

From Phortse Thanga it is an uphill climb to Machhermo. We walk on a trail alongside a rhododendron forest and pass through a waterfall before reaching Tongba Village. We continue our uphill trek and pass through Dhole, Labarma and Luza villages before reaching Machhermo. There is a Chhorten right before the Luza village. Throughout today’s journey we will be walking alongside the Dudh Koshi River. Overnight in Machhermo.

Day 08: Machhermo to Gokyo (4,800 m/15,744 ft): 7km, 4-5 hours

We begin today by climbing a ridge for an excellent view down the valley to Kangtaiga and also up towards Cho Oyu (8153 m). The valley now widens as the trail passes through Phangkha, where an avalanche in 1995 killed 40 people. We then descend to the riverbank before climbing onto the terminal moraine of the Ngazumpa Glacier on a steep trail. Upon crossing an iron bridge over a stream, the trail levels out as it follows the valley past the first lake, known as Longpongo, at 4690 m. At this juncture, we get a chance to observe lama footprints on a stone. At the sight of the second lake, Taboche Tsho, we become mesmerized by the shimmering turquoise blue sheet of water sparkling in the sun. Little ahead of the second lake, we reach the third lake, the two linked by a surging stream. Gokyo village stands by the third lake and Cho-Oyu Mountain as a backdrop sets an amazing spectacular sight here. After lunch, we explore around the third lake, Dudh Pokhari. Overnight in Gokyo.

Day 09: Gokyo Valley: Acclimatization Day - Optional Hike to Gokyo Ri (5357 m/17,570 ft): 2km, 3 - 4 hours

We will hike to Gokyo Ri, a small peak above Gokyo village, in the morning and savor the fantastic views of the entire Khumbu region.  As we ascend, the views become even more fantastic and we can see four of the seven highest peaks of Nepal, Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. Reaching the fourth lake, Thonak Tsho we take pleasure in the lake’s serene beauty after which we trek back along the retracing trail to the third lake. We may take an additional hike up to the fifth lake, Ngozumba Tsho if time permits and depending on our physical conditions. From here, the view of Ngozumba glacier, the longest glacier of the Himalayas, is so fascinating. Overnight in Gokyo.

Day 10: Gokyo to Thagnak (4750 m/15,580 ft): 4km, 4 - 5 hours

If we did not climb the Gokyo Ri the previous day, we can do that today. Climbing to the top of Gokyo Ri is demanding as it is steep and takes about 3 to 4 hours to reach the top. But the scenery of Gokyo village, on the edge of third lake overlooked by Cholatse and the broad Nogzumpa Glacier, is magnificent. We are surrounded by panoramic mountains like Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, Kangtega, Taboche, Cholatse, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest, Changtse, and Pumori. The sight of sunrays kissing Everest which towers over all the surrounding peaks is astounding. We trek through the Ngazumpa Glacier to the mountain on the other side. Next, traverse along the edge of that mountain and then meander into Thagnak. It will be a short hike today with an afternoon of rest which will prepare us for long hiking days and elevation gain to come.

 

Day 11: Dzongla to Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft): 6km, 2 - 3 hours

This will be a very short trek so we have a lot time to relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. We climb down from Dzongla and walk through a grassy trail while enjoying the view of Lobuche Peak. The trail curves through the wide river bed before reaching Lobuche. We can spend the rest of day taking a rest which will help us prepare for the next day’s long trek. Overnight in Lobuche.

Day 12: Lobuche to Gorekshep via EBC (5,170m)8-9 hrs

This is most probably the best section of trekking on this trip. The trail is a bit rocky and challenging as you walk parallele to Khumbu glaciers on your right. The final section involves negotiating your way through big rocks and boulders. Gorakshep is the last village before Everest base camp. Overnight in Gorakshep.

 

Day 13: Gorekshep to Pheriche Via Kalapatthar (4280 m) 8-9 hrs

Rise up early, very early in the morning, around 4 am. You will start your trekking in the moonlight as you attempt to scale to the top of Kalapathar. All this effort is required to reach to the top of Kalapathar just at dawn, when the sunlight hits Mt. Everest and what lay infront you is the most stunning and magnificent views of sunrise on Mt. Everest. You will have plenty of time taking clicks before you return to Gorakshep. Have your lunch at Gorakshep and return to Pheriche. Overnight in Pheriche.  

Day 14: Pheriche to Namche (3,470m) 7-8 hrs

Retrace your step back to Namche. This is an easy walk, filled with ups and downs. Overnight in Namche.

Day 15: Namche to Lukla: 6- 8 hrs
