Everest Base Camp & Gokyo Trek via Cho-La Pass
This 20-day Everest trek has everything: the incredible mountain views from Chukung, Kala Pathar and Gokyo Ri. Popularly known as "The Ultimate Trek," it includes all that the Khumbu has to offer including the fascinating villages and Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and the culture and hospitality of the Sherpa people, who will surely win your hearts. After starting with a flight to Lukla (2,805m/9,200ft) we trek up to Kala Pathar view point (5,550m/18,200ft) and then veer off the main trail to cross the Cho La pass (5,422m/17,783ft) into the Gokyo Valley. To top off this unique trek we climb Gokyo Ri (5,488m/18,000ft) for a panoramic view of the greatest mountain scenery in the world - including five 8000+m/26,000+ft giants and myriad other peaks of the Khumbu Himal.
