Gokyo and Kalapathar via Cho La pass itinerary, one of Nepal's most famous treks to Khumbu Mountains and Sherpa country. After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The trail to Gokyo is a gradual ascent up the valley passing through patches of birch and rhododendron forest where the elusive musk deer can sometimes be seen.

After the Cho La pass, we reach Dzongla. The views of Ama Dablam and Taweche are spectacular.

After the Zhongla ascent, we continue towards Gorak Shep and climb to Kala Pattar (5545 m) from where we enjoy an impressive up-close view of Everest. Our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery, where we rest and savor the incredible scenery, including magnificent views of Everest, Ama Dablam (6856 m), Kantega (6809 m), Kwangde (6194 m), Nuptse (7879 m), Lhotse (8511 m) and many more.
