Everest Base Camp cho la pass Gokyo Trek vs. Everest Base Camp

Both trekking packages take trekkers to the famous Everest base camp. The first 8 days of trekking follow the same itinerary and route of trekking, unless nothing customized in the existing trekking package.

Comparing these 2 trekking; Everest base camp trek and Ebc trek with cho la pass Gokyo valley:- the second trekking package beats EBC trek alone. As Gokyo lakes are one of the famous places to see in the Everest region. In spite of Cho la pass being harder to trek over, Gokyo trekking is preferred by many trekkers over Everest base camp kalapathar trekking.

Physical Requirements / Everest Base Camp cho la pass Gokyo Lakes trek difficulty

Everest base camp Gokyo ri trek has an extra challenge on top of Everest base camp kalapathar trekking. To trek over one of the 3 high pass treks of Everest, is involved in EBC chola pass Gokyo lake treks.

Ebc chola pass gokyo lake trek with kathmandu 2
Gokyo lake is major role played in Ebc chola pass trekking because Gokyo lake give its own attraction for visitors.

Trekking over 5420-meter-high passes is not a long walk but the straight downhill trek from the top of chola pass towards the gokyo lakes trek. Thus, ebc Gokyo lake trek is a physically demanding trek. Trekking in Everest Nepal is famous because of both Everest base camp and the Gokyo lakes. Thus, both EBC trek and EBC chola pass Gokyo lakes trek are overwhelmingly beautiful trekking destinations for mountain lovers.

EBC trek with Gokyo Lake over chola pass is trekked from both sides. When attempted from the Gokyo lake side, this trekking is not just hard but might be dangerous with rock fall.

On the other hand trekking EBC first and doing cho la pass, to get to the Gokyo lakes is famous and strongly recommended. Doing this will do two major things; firstly, doing Everest base camp and climbing the summit of kala patthar will complete your 50 percent goal, in the worst case. Secondly spending 2 nights above the height of 5000 meters above the sea level will help you to acclimatize properly, to trek over the chola pass, stress-less, in general.

Overview

EBC cho la pass Gokyo  trek is a best trek and admired by many. However, it has an adventure of crossing the cho la pass, before getting to Gokyo lakes trek.

Reaching the everest base camp and gokyo lakes trek and Kalapatthar will be a joyous experience after all the excitement and challenges along the Everest basecamp Gokyo  lakes trek.

And the entire World’s highest mountain will be just in front of you with thousands of snow-capped top really close teasing you, Everest is 5 kilometer in distance from the Everest base camp.

Everest Base Camp trek cost

EBC chola pass Gokyo trek cost includes cost of guide, food, accommodation and the transportation and permit, in general. But there are some national and international companies who provide the service package. In service package you pay your food and beverage yourself. This is a win-win deal in between the trekking agencies and client.

Number of days for Ebc chola pass Gokyo valley trek, facility during the trek, private or group join trip are few parameters to determine the cost of the trekking package.

“Everest base camp trek with chola pass and Gokyo valley is not an easy adventure; it needs attention and average fitness and good guidance. Saying that, it is recommended to look at the quality of service rather than budget travel.”

To avoid the cost of guide & porter you can research in the internet, there is tons of information in the internet, these days. But as you will be supporting local economy while travelling and at intense reason you will collect a life time experience with a local person from the region, while trekking with Nepalgram Adventure team.

Everest Base Camp trek solo vs guided

Solo ebc gokyo ri trek has both pro and cons. If you love your private time, trekking solo might be a best idea, whereas if you love making strange friends while travelling; you better go with our group join trips to Everest base camp chola pass Gokyo trek.

As a solo trekker,there will be feasibility of easy customization of day to day itinerary. You can skip some boring destination and stay longer in in some awesome spots, as per you and your trekking guide’s knowledge. Also, solo trekkers will have private guide to take care the entire trip scheduling and delivering information, en route.

Single supplement of guide, porter, accommodation is going to cost you more. As one person will be paying for private trip, no splitting of cost in between.

Despite of costly trip, solo trekking trip will be a best choice for a lifelong experience in Everest base camp chola pass Gokyo valley trek.

Everest Base Camp trek itinerary

Itinerary of Nepalgram is superior than other trekking companies as the route of trekking package cares your interest, has back up plan, follow the easiest route. Spending 2 nights above 5000 meters at Lobuche and Gorakshep will acclimatize you properly and also our itinerary avoids straight uphill section of Chola pass.

“In Everest base camp trek via Gokyo Lake; straight uphill while climbing the top of chola pass from Gokyo side is not just hard but also dangerous because of rock fall. Also, trekking on top of fresh glacier of Chola pass in downhill route is not just tricky but very dangerous. Cho la pass is not a ski spot; you miss a step means a big danger.”

For all those reasons, Chola pass trek route for everest base camp via gokyo lakes is not recommended.

EBC via Gokyo splits its route from the village of Kyangjuma on the left river valley, along the river of Gokyo. In comparision between the normal EBC gokyo lakes via Chola pass itinerary and everest base camp trek itinerary, the route will follow exactly similar trekking timeline and route as Everest base camp kalapatthar trekking. And once EBC kalapatthar trek starts its descend, on the very first day, trekker going over Chola pass will split near Thukla pas, and trek all around the base of Lobuche peak.

From the ascend of 5545 meter at Kalaptthar, trekkers will come down at Dzongla village at 4700 meters above the sea level, before climbing chola pass to get the Gokyo valley of Everest region.

Everest Base Camp Gokyo Trek altitude

Maximum altitude of Everest basecamp gokyo trek is the top of Kalapatthar at 5545 meters above the sea level. This black stone hill top is not just a highest point on EBC Gokyo trek, but also a perfect view point to see Everest base camp, Khumbu glacier, Khumbu ice fall, Mount Everest, Hillary step, Gorakshpe village, Chmbu glacier, Mt pumori (very close in entire EBC trek), South col of Everest and infinite mountain range of Khumbu & Makalu & Numbur Himlaya range.

HINT – Ebc chola pass gokyo trek starts at 2800 meters altitude of Lukla and it descends to 2600 meter before it starts rising all the way to 5545 meters atop of, stunning kalaptthar view point. Climbing kalapatthar is getting above the altitude of Chola pass, thus, crossing chola pass is considered easy from Everest base camp side.

After getting at 5364 meters at Everest base camp, the altitude of Everest base camp chola pass Gokyo lakes treks will descend all the way to 4700 meters before climbing Chola pass. This altitude profile of chola pass trek will makes your body properly acclimatized to the high altitude of Everest trek.

The altitude profile of Everest base camp trekking from Gokyo side is not properly acclimatized as of from Kalaptthar side of trekking trail.

Best time to trek Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes

Apart from autumn another big season for chola pass trek is spring. Month from early march to late May is regarded as the spring season for trekking in EBC Gokyo via chola pass.

Trekking in the peak season might be annoying with the huge crowd of people trekking in the Everest base camp part. So if you want to skip the crowd of the trekker, it is recommended to sign up trek in the winter or monsoon. Smart idea might be, to trek towards the end of autumn or spring trekking season in Nepal.

However, October month of autumn season is the best month for Gokyo chola pass Everest base camp trek.

“Unlike to other months through out the year, in April you will be able to see the line of climber towards the top of Everest. Thus taking binocular with your is recommended for trekking to ebc Gokyo, in April.”

Either during the sunrise/sunset hike to kalapatthar or Gokyo ri, trekkers will have chance to see the movement of climber on the Everest. If you hike for sunrise up to kalapatthar top, every stop you take to hold your breath, take a look towards the Khumbu ice fall.

NOTE – Everest base camp via Gokyo lakes trek is not recommended as climbing the top of chola pass from Gokyo side is nearly impossible if there is chunk of snow and loose rocks.

Gokyo ri

Among all, Gokyo Ri (5364 m) is one of the most awaited destinations after completing EBC and Chola-pass. View of the wide mountain range and the Gokyo lakes from the top of the Gokyo Ri is definitely one of the major highlights of the trek.

You might have seen the picture in the front page of lonely planet book; it will look the same. The Gokyo lakes are in cascade pattern, which makes trekking in this area even more beautiful and interesting for trekkers. You will spend a night in the Gokyo village, right next to the 3rd lake and it’s bright blue water. During winter the water might be frozen but still looks cool.
