Chola Pass Trek (17 Days)
- Whats Included
Chola pass trekking route is newly designed and offered after most of previous trekker’s preference in alternative path. This route is highly suggested for better acclimatization, safer for bad weather, easier to cross the chola pass and complete one side to EBC even pass is blocked due to snow.
We begin our adventure with a short but scenic flight from Katmandu, the capital of Nepal, to the small mountain village of Lukla. You will experience the thrill of approaching and landing on its tiny runway! Once leaving Lukla, and until we return, we spend our time trekking through the heartland of the Sherpa people, staying in their villages, experiencing their cultures and visiting Buddhist monasteries. Our trek follows the Dudh Koshi River, and along its route you will see distant views of Everest and neighboring Ama Dablam, considered by many to be among the most beautiful mountains in Nepal. A rest day will be spent at Namche Bazaar, the busy market town in the heart of Sherpa country. These rest days allow time to explore the surrounding areas and to acclimatize.
Second rest day will be spent at Dingboche. Those who have fully acclimatized may not have AMS problem to trek to Everest Base Camp, Chola pass and Gokyo Lake to view the famous Khumbu Icefall and see the numerous climbing groups preparing to climb Everest including high peaks. However, without doubt, the highlight for most will be the early morning climb of Kala Pathar (5550 m/ 18315 ft). Standing on its peak, with the sun rising and Mt Pumori (7165 m/ 23644 ft) in the background, you will have a panoramic view of the Khumbu glacier, Everest Base Camp, Nuptse and the southwest face of Everest itself
The trail to Gokyo is an ascent up passing through zhongla and adventures pass” Cho la”. Through small yak-grazing settlements we reach the Gokyo lakes where we climb the Gokyo Peak (5480 m) and enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo.
Leaving Gokyo Lake, we spend the next few days retracing our route down to Namche Bazaar. The trek down will be equally exciting, as you take in the views and reflect on your accomplishments and experiences. From Namche Bazaar, it is a very pleasant day’s walk to Lukla and your flight to Kathmandu.
