This trek to Gokyo Cho La Pass offers it all, 'the thrill and adventure' one expects in Everest Base Camp! Compared to other treks it's a bit challenging trekking trail but at the same the most sought after treks to the Khumbu Mountains and Sherpa country. Right after your flight lands on Lukla, the trek moves to Dudh Koshi Valley to Namche Bazaar. As you ascend towards Gokyo you are entertained with patches of birch and rhododendron forest where you might even pass your ways with elusive musk deer.
After reaching the Gokyo Lake we climb the Gokyo peak (5480m) and enjoy the stunning mountain views of Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyu. But that's not it when we have reached Kala Pattar; you can enjoy an early morning trek to view the unbelievable views of the sky high mountains.
