Gokya cho la pass Everest base camp trekking offers you panoramic mountain views from every destination. Following the famous "Everest Trail" we trek to the prosperous village of Namche Bazaar and onwards, alongside the torrential Imtse Khola, to the high valley below Everest. During the course of this excellent and relatively easy-paced trek, we visit many delightful Sherpa villages, including the stunningly located Thyangboche with its impressive backdrop of Everest and Ama Dablam. We trek over the cho la pass onwards to Gokyo, where we rest for some side treks including a climb of Gokyo Ri for some fantastic views. A further three days are spent descending to Lukla for our flight to Kathmandu. A memorable flight from Kathmandu to the airstrip at Lukla takes us into an alpine world where the air is crystal clear and colorful prayer flags flutter from the rooftops.
