The Everest Chola Pass Trek features spectacular mountain passes, Everest Base Camp (EBC) and the fascinating culture of the Sherpa people. Unlike the classic EBC walk, we get to explore various glacial lakes and approach EBC via the challenging, yet spectacular Cho La Pass trek top (5,330 meters).
The Everest Chola Pass Trek following a flight to Lukla, we start our trek by crossing the Dudhkosi valley and then walk up steeply to the bustling Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, where we spend an acclimatization day. The town, highly influenced by Tibetan Buddhism, has colorful monasteries, Chhortens, and fluttering prayer flags. Reaching the Gokyo valley, we explore breathtaking glacial lakes. A short hike to the Gokyo Ri offers panoramas of glaciers and the snowy peaks of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m), Cho Oyu (8,201m), and others.
The Everest Chola Pass trek is the most difficult section of the trek, and Nepal Hiking Trek fully supports you through this challenging stretch. After crossing the pass, we continue to Everest Base Camp. We descend through the main route of the EBC trek, including stops at Lobuche, Dingbuche, Khumjung, Phakding and finally the airport town of Lukla The best time for this trek is during the fall and spring.
Nepal Hiking Trek recommends that you include some extra days in your trip because flights out of Lukla can experience long delays and cancellations, even for cloud cover. For any queries, please feel free to contact us:
