This trek is with some extra value. Our trek to Everest Base Camp goes via Gokyo Lake. Gokyo is located immediately west of the Khumbu valley. It is much less traveled or developed than the main trail. The Gokyo valley is dominated at its head by the massive Cho-Oyu (8153 meters). From Gokyo we ascend to Gokyo Ri (2 hours) for some spectacular views before retracing to Gokyo, we then follow the south easterly trail to Thagnag Kharka. The following two days are spent reaching Lobuche on the main Everest trail. Lobuche to Kalapatthar takes two more days via Everest glacier where there are spectacular high mountain views of Everest, Nuptse and Lhotse. Five more days are taken retracing to Lukla for the flight back to Kathmandu.

A memorable experience of trekking to Everest base camp via ChoLa pass.
Janga's guidance during the 14 days Mt Everest Base camp trek was excellent; His sense of humor and knowledge made our travel light and enjoyable. He and his team literally dragged us up during the arduous climb up Chola pass. We saw magnificent Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and Cho Oyu in brilliant clear light and summitted Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar.
A really really memorable experience ...worth remembering for a life time.
Junga and team were very very helpful.. especially during rescuing our friends who suffered altitude sickness.
Always smiling and in very joyous mood.
It was a very well planned trip Great Job.
We had completed the trek.
