The Trek to Everest Chola Pass is an alternative trek to the traditional trek to the Everest Base Camp. One can have Everest Chola Pass clear view of Mt. Everest from Gokyo. The mountains are even more spectacular in the Gokyo valley. An interesting part is that four peaks above 8000 meters (Cho-Oyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu) can be seen from this scenic valley. As the most breathtaking view in the entire Khumbu region, the tremendous ice ridge between Cho-Oyu and Gyachung Kang (7622m) offers a thrilling experience. With many options for additional exploration and high altitude walking, include the crossing of the Cho-La Pass, at 5420m, one of the high passes in Solukhumbu, the trek may be the most memorable one. Other packages can also be made by combining the Gokyo trek with visits to Base Camp or Kala Pattar.
