EBC-CHOLA PASS-GOKYO TREK

DESCRIPTION: Trip Cost: US$1950

EBC-Chola trek gives you the grand tour of the famous Everest area. This is a strenuous trek leading to Gokyo Lake and over the Cho La Pass at 5330m leading into the Khumbu valley. There will be quite mountaineering experiences needed in Cho la pass. There will be always huge glacier, ice and rock, sometimes rope and crampons needed with the mountain challenges.
With eight of the world’s ten highest peaks, Nepal is loaded with spectacular mountains vistas. The flora and fauna are other ornaments of the Sagarmatha National Park. The story of the yeti is still a mystery and the legend lives on in the Khumbu.  Strenuous trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes, including four of the world's eight highest peaks: Cho Oyu (8201m), Makalu (8463m), Lhotse (8516 m) and Everest (8850m). Breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but, culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life.  Why not to Visit once?
