Cho La Pass trekking is also known as Everest circuit trekking, the route goes in a circuit and takes in most attractive places Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri, Cho La Pass, Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar. Cho La Pass is one of the Nepal's most famous and challenging trekking route located in the Khumbu valley, Sherpa capital (Homeland of Sherpa's). After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen. Through small yak-grazing settlements we reach the Gokyo lakes where we climb the Gokyo Ri (Peak, 5357 meters) and enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo.
After the Cho La pass, we reach at Dzongla. The views of Ama Dablam and Taweche are spectacular. After the Zhongla ascent, we continue towards Gorak Shep then climb to Everest base Camp (5364m) and Kala Pattar (5545m) from where we enjoy an impressive up-close view of Everest. Our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery, where we rest and savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856m), Kantega (6809m), Kwangde (6194m), Nuptse (7879m), Lhotse (8511m) and many more.
