A truly amazing adventure in the Himalayas involves some admirable views of pristine lakes, high soaring mountains, impressive glacier, and epic base of the highest mountain in the world and involves high Himalayan pass crossing. An adventure trekking to Everest Base Camp and then to Gokyo Lakes crossing Cho La pass is such a trip that gives you a thrilling adventure of the lifetime.

This epic trip follows the Everest base camp trekking trail and takes you there to enjoy the charm of the base camp of the highest mountain in the world along with the Kalapatthar hiking adventure. Later, the trek goes towards Gokyo lakes crossing the Cho La pass. You can explore Gokyo lakes; hike to Gokyo Ri and enjoy the Ngozumpa glacier and other charms in the region. The trail after the exploration of Gokyo valley comes to meet the Everest base camp trail at Namche Bazar.
