Everest Chola Pass Trekking

Everest Chola Pass Trekking is the grand tour of famous Khumbu region. Popularly known as Gokyo Cho La Pass Everest Base Camp Trekking, this entire trip offers the most of Gokyo region, Everest Base Camp, and Chola Pass. Being one of the most popular treks in Everest region, Everest Chola Pass trek leads you to the land of legendary Sherpa people and the foothills of the world's highest peak, Everest itself. We appreciate Everest Chola Pass Trekking via the highly praised route through Dudh Koshi to its source Gokyo Lake while providing you the benefit of enjoying the splendors of glorious peaks including Everest, Gokyo Peak, Cho Oyu and Makalu.

During Chola Pass Trekking, we pass through the charming villages with wonderful cultural possessions while enjoying the unparalleled panorama of mountains in the heart and background of well-known Everest region. Mainly, we cross one of three mighty passes in the Everest, Cho-la and pass through one of the definitive high altitude trekking routes. Of course, we will be trekking in one of the world's most stunning and challenging topographies, which undoubtedly provide rewarding experiences for anyone. The wonderful ambience surrounded by mighty peaks presents the most fulfilling experience in the high Himalayan region of Nepal. Many people recognize this trek as Everest Circuit Trek as well, which is obviously one of the most adventurous trekking trips in Khumbu region.

Combination of the awesome treks to Everest Base Camp, stunning Gokyo Valley, famous and mighty Cho-La Pass, and giant Ngozumpa Glacier, will certainly going to offer you the best out of your Nepal trips. The peerless views from the best viewpoints of Gokyo Ri and Kalapatthar are just breathtaking. Everest Cho La Trekking is going to be the best opportunity to explore the majestically soaring mountains and legendary Sherpa villages, Buddhist Monasteries, and wonderful Himalayan culture of Nepal. But being a strenuous trip, we only recommend this trip to those who are physically fit and have already gained trekking experiences in high Himalayas. ColdFeet Adventures warmly welcomes you all to join this rewarding trek. We promise you the best experience during your Nepal holidays.

Day 03: Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2804m) and trek to Phakding (2610m) – 4 Hours

We take our scenic flight to Lukla early in the morning, which takes about 30 to 40 minutes. We then have to make the final preparations for the trekking.

We stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 04: Trek from Phakding to Namche (3411m) – 5 Hours

Of course, today is going to be challenging day for us. We have to make our route to Namche, the gateway of Everest itself. So, following through the riverbank of Dudh Koshi River, we gently begin to rise through the rhododendron and magnolia forests with giant fir trees, which eventually bring us to the village of Jorsalle. Jorsalle is entry point of Sagarmatha National Park, where we have to show our trekking permits and TIMS. After a brief stop-over lunch, the climb proceeds towards Namche Bazaar passing through the National Park area. We eventually reach at Namche, a delightful mountain town and so-called Sherpa Capital of Solukhumbu. We check into some guesthouse to stay overnight.

Today, we dedicate our whole day for the acclimatization or we can visit around the Khumjung village and Everest View Hotel Everest and witness the amazing views of Himalayas including Everest itself.

Day 06: Trek from Namche to Dole (4200m) – 8 Hours

From Namche today, we begin our pleasant walk through the forest with magnificent views of mountains until Kenjoma and the trail goes uphill towards Mung Danda. After having lunch at Mung Danda and overlooking the views of stunning Amadablam, Thamserku, Khangteka, Kongde, Kusum Kangru, and Kongde-Ri, we head down to the riverside. Continuing the trail, move through the forest areas exploring the beautiful birds like Himalayan Munal, Lama Gaya and various vultures and other wild animals like Musk Deer, Himalayan Thar, Yak and so on. We eventually reach our destination, Dole, for overnight stay.

Day 07: Trek from Dole to Machhermo (4470m) – 5 Hours

However, today's walk is not going to be that strenuous, we make an early start from Dole today. We march through spectacular natural beauty today. It takes around five hours to reach Machhermo. Well, there's a legend about Machhermo. It's been said that at Machhermo, Yeti has killed three yaks and attacked a Sherpa women while she was collecting the Yak dung for firewood. You will be hearing such stories from Sherpas and guides on the way.

We will be hiking up to Gokyo Ri today. Gokyo Ri is regarded as one of the best viewpoints for Everest. Don't forget to witness and take the snapshots of the wonderful Everest from Gokyo Ri. After enjoying the mountain glory from Gokyo Ri, we then continue our trek towards Thagnag. We follow the trail via glacier called Nangpa. The best time to do this trek is from October through May.

Today, we start before sunrise at 4 or 5 am to reach the pass by 9am. The weather conditions can turn unfavorable during noontime, so we start early in the morning. We cross over an altitude of 5420m where we could be exposed to strong winds if we cross too late. As we reach the top, we are rewarded by the magnificent views of Everest and other mountains. At noon, we start descending towards Dzongla. There will be very basic accommodation at Dzongla. Stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 11: Trek from Dzongla to Lobuche (4930m) – 5 Hours

Today's route will be rather shorter and easier taking you to Lobuche. It takes around four hours to reach Lobuche. Stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 12: Trek from Lobuche to Gorakshep (5140m) to EBC and back to Gorakshep – 7 Hours

Today is going to be the difficult walk along the Khumbu Glacier. We ascend up to EBC, the closest we can get to Mount Everest without mountaineering equipment. Enjoy the spectacular views of Khumbu Icefall and return back to Gorakshep for night.

Day 13: Climb up to Kalapatthar (5545m) and trek to Pheriche (4240m) – 7 Hours

Today's walk will also be quite difficult yet rewarding for us. Most of the morning, we climb towards Kalapatthar, one of the best cited viewpoints at Everest region offering you probably the best views of Mount Everest. The ascent is demanding but the panorama it offers makes you forget everything else. We can get to enjoy the beautiful views of Pumori, Nuptse, Chagatse, Lhotse, and numerous other peaks. After spending some memorable moments at Kalapatthar, we descend to Gorakshep again and then to Pheriche. Stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 14: Trek from Pheriche to Namche

From Pheriche, we take a slightly different route down to Orsho then to Pangboche. Here's the oldest monastery in the region which contains what is said to be the scalp and bones of a Yeti. We leave mountains behind us and descend through the Tyangboche Monastery before continuing back to Namche. We stay overnight at a local guesthouse.

Day 15: Trek from Namche to Lukla

Marking the end of our trek, today, we will trek finally towards Lukla. It takes about six hours from Namche to reach Lukla. We stay overnight at a guesthouse.

Day 17: Flight back from Lukla to Kathmandu

We catch our early morning Lukla to Kathmandu flight. On arriving Kathmandu, you transfer to your hotel or spend the remaining time for exploring any sights you have missed out during your first day in Kathmandu or you can just choose to go for last minute shopping.

What Client Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal. Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area! jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet! Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks. John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks! Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South London Tom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi! Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
