Everest Base Camp/Cho la Pass Trek

Trip Overview

It is a dream of many travelers to trek in the Everest region. But the Everest Base Camp- Cho la Pass trek is truly challenging and one must be well-prepared and have good stamina for it. Everest Base Camp- Cho la Pass (5330m) is a less trodden path in the Everest region but still holds its natural beauty. Anyone can do this trek unless he or she has gained some experience before though, it may prove to be a bit more strenuous for new trekkers. Crossing the high altitude Cho la pass and walk along the trail to Everest Base Camp is indeed an unforgettable and lifetime experience for every adventure enthusiast. While trekking, you will enjoy the best views of snow-covered mountains such as Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Pumori and many other peaks.

From Kathmandu, we take a regular flight to Lukla & follow the normal Everest trail passing through lush green forests, Sagarmatha National Park, many breathtaking landscapes, villages, Monasteries, delightful streams, and waterfalls. And ultimately, you will step at the base camp of the world’s highest mountain along with Kala Pattar excursion.

The best time to do Everest Base Camp- Cho la Pass trek is autumn and spring. During this season the weather is pleasant and the skies are clear. The temperature in the spring and autumn remains very cold, especially at the Everest base camp. The temperatures go approximately – 12-degree Celsius in the day. While during nights and mornings it may be approximately -26-degree Celsius. On the other hand, in monsoon (July-August) it is not possible to do  Everest Base Camp- Cho la Pass trek as it can be quite challenging.  But, if you choose this trek in winter you need to prepare well mentally and physically. Because crossing the Chola pass is the most difficult part of the trek especially in winter due to snow and strong wind. Sometimes in winter the Cho La pass trail remains closed due to the snow and in this situation, you can only explore the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar.
