Chola Pass Trekking - 21 Days

We start our trek from Lukla after taking half an hour flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. When we land at its tiny airstrip, the adventure trekking really begins.

Home to three 8000m peaks (Everest 8850, Lhotse 8441 and Cho Oyo 8188) and with an abundance of other major peaks probably makes this place the best mountain trekking area in the world. Sagarmatha National Park is completely surrounded by peaks above 6000m (except for small gap where we trek in from Lukla and few very high passes) and cut by three major river valleys divided by smaller peaks and valleys; and so giving the trekker huge scope for adventure. From the classic trek to Kala Patar, 5550m, with it's unparalled views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Pumori and the Khumbu Glacier to the holy lakes of Gokyo, 4790m, and Gokyo Ri (peak- 5360m) with it's views of Everest and Cho Oyo, you can find a multitude of other options – Gokyo and Kala Patar can be linked by the isolated Chola Pass, 5330m - you can trek to Gokyo from Namche Bazar via the Renjo Pass, 5340m – or join up the Renjo, Chola and Kongma Passes to experience Gokyo, Kala Patar and Island Peak Base Camp (you can even walk from Kala Patar to Gokyo around the back of Chola along a glacier and high pass). For the more adventurous, with winter alpine mountaineering experience, there are many high passes (Tasi Lapche, Henjo La, Kangchu La, Chola Col, Changri La, Amphu La, Mingbo La and the Sherpini Col to Makalu) and Peaks to Climb.
