The Gokyo-Cho La Pass-Everest Base Camp trek is region’s ‘high altitude trek. An early morning scenic twin otter flight brings you to Lukla, and follows the Everest Base Camp trail to Namche Bazaar. A visit to Khumjung Shepa village offers an opportunity to explore Sherpa culture, tradition, closure view of Ama Dablam and Mt. Everest.

Then, Everest Cho La pass trail branches North West to ascend the serene Dudh Koshi Valley to the lake village of Gokyo on the Ngozumpa glacial moraine. Use a rest day to explore the valley. A stiff climb up Gokyo Ri for sunrise and soaring views includes Cho Oyo, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu. Then walk down and cross the 1km glacier to Tagnag.

Start before sunrise for the tough Cho La ascent and long descent to Lobuche. This is tuff, but beautiful day. The trail then rises, for two days to Gorak Shep. Walk to view the ring of peaks surrounding Everest Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier – and the ice fall towards the summit.

A sunrise hike up Kala Patthar offers superb views of Everest, the South Col, Nuptse and the glacier. After breakfast, begin the easier, warmer, four days downward trek to Lukla filling your camera gaps.

Note: Above trekking hours and distances are approximate, and absolutely for general idea only.

Remark: - Please note that cloud and turbulent weather is a regular phenomenon along the Himalayan range. It is thus possible that domestic flights from Kathmandu to/from Lukla may have to be delayed for a few hours or even cancelled for a day or more. Fortunately this does not happen frequently during the high seasons of March to May or September to November: but you need to plan for this possibility.

As a safeguard we recommend that you add on a couple of extra days after your trek before you fly from Kathmandu to your onward destination.

Gokyo Cho La Pass Trekking Detail Itinerary:

  • Day 01: Kathmandu – Lukla (2,642m/8,668ft) – Phakding (2,562m/8,700ft), 35 min flight, ~8km, 3-4 hrs trek

    After breakfast, transfer to the Domestic Airport for the Trans Himalayan flight and dramatic landing on the hillside at Lukla: gateway to the Khumbu/Everest region. Meet your local porters and walk downhill to the Sherpa settlement of Cheplung. The trail then follows the side of the Dudh Koshi Valley before ascending to Ghat (2,530m/8,350ft). Another gentle hour leads up to Phakding.

    Overnight in Phakding at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 02: Phakding – Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,280ft), ~10km, 5-6 hrs

    The trail meanders through pine forest, along the Dudh Koshi River, crossing suspension bridges via the Sherpa villages of Benkar, Chumoa, Monjo and Jorsale: entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park and permit checkpoint; with tranquil views of glistening Thamserku (6,618m/21,714m). The trail continues along the riverbed to the confluence of the Bhote and Dudh Koshi Rivers. It then climbs steadily, crossing the high Tenzing- Hilary suspension bridge: with inspiring glimpses of Everest and the Nuptse – Lhotse ridge. A final three hour ascent through pine forest leads to the prosperous trading and administrative town of Namche Bazaar.

    Overnight in Namche Bazaar at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 03: Namche Bazaar: Acclimatization and exploration day

    This is a scheduled acclimatization day on the trek. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) and health experts recommend a stop for at least one extra night. Be active and roam rather than laze around: climb high and sleep low is the acclimatisation advice.

    Namche Bazaar has ATMs, cyber cafés, delicious restaurant food and bakeries, plus a colourful market each Friday evening and Saturday morning. Visit the Sagarmatha (Everest) National Park Visitor’s Centre on the hillock: with informative displays on Sherpa culture, local flora and fauna.

    Take an entertaining side trip to the large traditional Sherpa village of Khumjung (3,780m/12,402ft): with fine views of Thamserku, Kangtega, Ama Dablam and Everest – in a sea of lesser peaks. Return to Namche Bazaar for the night.

    An alternative five hour walk northwest of the town, to Thame (3,820m/12,533ft) below the impressive 6,187m/20,300ft Kongde Ri ridge, offers panoramic Himalayan views not seen on the EBC route.

    Overnight in Namche Bazar at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 04: Namche Bazaar – Dole (4,110m/13,152ft), ~11km, 5-6 hrs

    The trail climbs up from the town and then contours around the hillside, offering great views including Everest and Khumjung. It then ascends along the lower slopes of Khumbila, branching northwest of the Everest trail and continuing up the Dudh Koshi Valley. It climbs steeply to the tiny village of Mong La (built around an ancient chorten), then drops to Phortse Thenga before climbing through a pine and rhododendron forest and on up to Dole – from where there are marvellous views of snow capped peaks. Look out for spotted deer, Himalayan Tahrs and birds – including the colourful (male) Danphe pheasant (Nepal’s national bird).

    Overnight in Dole at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 05: Dole – Machhermo (4,470m/14,663ft), ~9km, 4-5 hrs

    Today’s walk leads along high trail through thorny alpine scrub, to scenic ridges above the river. Breathtaking views of Cho-Oyo, Thamserku and Kangtega are countered by charming views into the valley below where we pass summer-grazing hamlets such as Luza that lead up to Machhermo. The Machhermo Khola flows through the village from Kyajo Ri and Pharilapche before draining into the Dudh Koshi. This is the last settlement before Gokyo and has a HRA aid post for victims of AMS.

    Overnight in Machhermo at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 06: Machhermo – Gokyo (4,800m/15,744ft), ~7km, 3-4 hrs

    The trail rises gently from the village to a ridge that offers the first views of the north face of Cho-Oyo (8210m/26 907ft) and more views of Kangtega and Thamserku. Ahead in the valley is the snout of the Ngozumpa Glacier: the trail drops back towards the river. A metal bridge crosses the edge of the frozen Longponga Tsho (4,690m/15,383ft): the first of the Dudh Koshi’s six sacred lakes. Before Taboche Tsho, a path leads up onto the glacier – and the Cho La. A strenuous half hour’s walk beyond the lake leads to the summer village of Gokyo set on the side of the moraine and overlooking the blue-green Dudh Pokhari which nestles in a semi circle of high peaks at the foot of Gokyo Ri. Cho-Oyo and the ice ridge to Ghyachung Kang, from which the Ngozumpa glacier flows, are clearly visible behind ridges.

    Overnight in Gokyo at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 07: Gokyo: Acclimatisation and exploration of the Gokyo Valley

    Another scheduled rest day is stipulated to guard against AMS. Gokyo offers two major viewpoints. The first explores the fourth to sixth lakes north of the village. These lakes, together with melt water from the glacier are the source of the Dudh Koshi that is followed from Lukla.

    A trail rises gently, for three kilometres, north of the village to Thonak Tsho (4,870m/15,980m), the Ngozumpa Tsho (4,980m/16,340ft) and Scoundrel’s viewpoint (5,000m/16,405ft). From here there are tremendous close-up views of Cho-Oyu, Ghyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Makalu. Approximately two hours is needed for the 200m descent back to Gokyo. If there is time, continue north along the path to the Cho-Oyo Base Camp at the northern end of the sixth lake; the Gyazumba Tsho. There are several small peaks in this region that offer vantage points for the surrounding peaks and views of the Nagpa La, the old trade route into Tibet further west.

    Return to Gokyo for the night at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 08: Gokyo – Gokyo Ri (5,330 m/17,483 ft) – Tagnag, (4750 m/15,580 ft), ~6km, 5-6 hrs

    The second major viewpoint in the Gokyo region, Gokyo Ri, begins on the northern side of the lake, opposite the village. Its panorama invites an early start and involves a two hour climb to its summit. It overlooks the broad, rubble-covered Ngozumpa Glacier, Nepal’s longest, gouged out beneath a wall of towering peaks on its south-eastern flank. From the flag bedecked summit is the unforgettable vista of the Himalayan chain that includes Cho-Oyu and Ghyachung Kang, the north face of Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu, Cholatse, Taboche, Thamserku, Kangtega, Kusum Kangru (all over 6,300m/20,670ft) and many more, some unnamed.

    After breakfast at the hotel, take a leisurely stroll back down the trail to past the second lake, Taboche Tsho, and then climb up the moraine and cross the kilometre wide glacier to the tiny summer hamlet of Tagnag.

    Overnight in Tagnag at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 09: Tagnag - Cho-la Pass (5367 m/17,604 ft) - Dzonglha (4830m/15,845ft), ~14km, 9-10 hrs

    Today will be the toughest, but most rewarding day of the trek. It calls for a very early start – to beat likely cloud at the pass. The trail is steep from the hotel and climbs through grazing lands over a hill. It then drops into a minor valley before climbing steeply up a vast, loose scree slope on ill-defined paths that eventually lead to the flags that mark the narrow neck.

    Behind are views of the glacier, Pharilapche and Kyajo Ri. At your feet is the Cho La glacier and to the southeast views that include impressive Cholatse, Baruntse, Lobuche West and East and out to pyramidal Ama Dablam.

    The descent requires walking down the glacier followed by a boulder scramble to easier terrain below, then down to the summer grazing village of Dzonglha

    Overnight in Dzonglha at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 10: Dzonglha - Lobuche (4940 m/16,207 ft), ~6km, 3-4 hrs

    A short and gentle two hours of trekking takes you further down the valley and around the ridge below Awi Peak before heading northeast up a gradual slope to Lobuche.

    Rest and overnight in Lobuche at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 11: Lobuche - Gorak Shep (5,160m/16,930ft) - Base Camp (5,364m/17,594ft) - Gorak Shep, ~14km, 8-9 hrs

    Another long but rewarding day. Follow the windblown and rocky path along the barren moraine of the Khumbu Glacier to the last village at Gorak Shep. After an early lunch, set out on the feint trail to the world’s highest Base Camp on the Khumbu Glacier: opposite the dreaded icefall – the most dangerous section of an Everest ascent.

    In April/May the trail is busy with porters carrying in supplies and the site is a riot of colourful tents perched on the dirty ice. For the rest of the year it is a bleak and lonely place set below the impressive ice walls (and avalanches) of the Mahalangur Himal along the Tibetan border. From west to east, the visible peaks are Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse and Nuptse. Everest and the Cwm are hidden behind buttresses. Trek back to Gorak Shep for the night at Lodge.

    Overnight in Gorak Shep at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 12: Gorak Shep – Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192ft) – Pheriche (4,280m/14,070ft), ~15km, 8-9 hrs

    A very early morning climb of 2-3 hrs up Kala Patthar, behind the village, offers a sunrise awakening of the Himalayan chain. First Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), then its surrounding vassals: Pumori (7,145m/23,443ft), Lingtren (6 697/21 973ft), Khumbutse (6,623m/21,730ft), Changtse (7,550m/24,772ft), Lhotse (8,516m/27,941ft) and Nuptse (7,861m/25,792ft). Plus Cho Oyo (8,201m/26,907ft) in the west and Ama Dablam to the south: amidst countless other peaks that crowd the horizon in all directions.

    Drop back to Gorak Shep for breakfast and then retrace your steps down to Lobuche before continuing south on the Everest – Lukla trail. At the southern end of Khumbu’s glacial moraine is a group of stone-pile memorials to lost climbers and Sherpas. From here there are wonderful views of the Mahalangu Himal along the Tibetan border; including Pumori, Lingtren, Khumbutse and the Nuptse – Lhotse ridge: which hides Everest from view. Drop down the moraine and continue on to the village of Pheriche for a lower and warmer night.

    Overnight in Pheriche at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 13: Pheriche – Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,284ft), ~15km, 7-8 hrs

    Today’s trail gradually descends to Deboche before a mild rise through rhododendron forest to the hilltop village of Tengboche which has an important monastery and great views in all directions. A long descent, leads to Phunki Thenga (3,250m/10,663ft) on the Imja Khola: the trek’s lowest point north of Lukla. The path then climbs to Sanasa (where the trail forked to Gokyo) beyond which it broadens for the pleasant contour walk back to Namche Bazaar.

    Overnight in Namche Bazaar at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 14: Namche Bazaar – Lukla (2780m /9175ft), ~18km, 7-8 hrs

    From Namche, the trail descends to more comfortable altitudes, passing through the friendly farming villages of Jorsale (where we exit the National Park), Monjo, Phakding, then crosses the suspension bridge at Thado Koshi before rising to Ghat and Cheplung. Round off the adventure with the final 700m, 35min ascent to Lukla: and say goodbye to your porters.

    Overnight in Lukla at Lodge
    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 15: Lukla – Kathmandu (1,300m/4,264ft), 35 min flight
