Gokyo Chola Trek

This trek allows the adventurous to enjoy the breadth of what the Khumbu region has to offer. Often considered a side trip from the trail to Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Valley is a gem among Nepal’s “hidden valleys.” Home to the world’s highest string of freshwater lakes, the largest glacier in Nepal Ngozumba, and perhaps the best 360 degree panorama in the region from the summit of GokyoRi. This trek is a challenging exploration of the Khumbu region, its Sherpa culture, monasteries tucked within the clouds, and the demanding Cholo La Pass at 5367m.
