This trek in Khumbu goes through the Gokyo Valley and cover Chola Pass. It encompasses some of Khumbu’s most dramatic scenery. This trek combines two famous treks into one. When we reach Gokyo, we have to a panoramic view of massive pekas like CHO-OYU (8155), Gyachungkang (79225) and some great glaciers, mainly the NGOZUMPA glaciers. After crossing Chola Pass, we can have close view of Kala Pathar (5555m) and [pekas like Everest, Lhotse, Nupts, Pumori and Makalu. Finally, we approach the Base Camp of Everest . This is a strenuous trek and should only be attempted by those who are fit and experiences. The shrepas, whoe, hospitalit is world renowned, are our costant companions. The Gokyo or Upper Dudh Koshi Valley offers a fine and arguably even more spectacular route into the heart of the Khumbu than the popular direct trail up the Khumbu Valley. This is especially true when combined with a crossing if the Chola Pass to Lobuches. As with the conversational approach to Everest Base Camp, the stages recommended on this trek are purposely short to give you time to acclimatize.
