Everest Basecamp Gokyo Lakes Trek

Everest Basecamp Gokyo Lakes Trek via Chola Pass is an exciting trek to Everest Basecamp that takes us via Namche Bazaar and then up to the sacred lakes in the stunning Gokyo Valley. Here, we climb Gokyo Ri, one of the finest viewpoints for a panoramic view of Mount Everest (8848m) and surrounding mountains, including 8000 meters mountains Cho Oyu and Makalu. Then, continuing our journey to base camp, we cross into the Khumbu Valley through Cho La (5420m) and reach Gorakshep, where we will spend a night at the highest lodges in the Khumbu before ascending Kala Patar (5550m) for more superb views of Everest and the astonishing Khumbu Icefall before trekking out to Lukla by way of Tengboche.
