Chola Pass-Kalapathar Trek

The Chola Pass-Kalapathar trek is amalgamation of a hike to Everest view point, visit to Khumjung village, climbing Gokyo Ri, Chola pass, Gorakshep and hike to Kalapathar.

The Chola Pass-Kalapathar trek is one of the adventurous treks among the numerous treks in the Himalayas.

 Lukla from Kathmandu is an attraction backed up by the scenic mountain flight before the trek. An acclimatization hike to the Everest view point fulfills the dream of trekkers to experience the arresting sight of Everest. The hike to Everest also comprises a visit to the Khumbu valley. A popular Sherpa village, Khumjung is situated in the Khumbu Himalayan region.

The next charm of the trek is an early morning climb to Gokyo Ri (5357m.). From Gokyo Ri we will descend down to Dragnak to cross the Chola pass (5368m.) which will lead us to the Gokyo Lake. World famous peaks Everest (8848m.), Makalu (8463m.), Lhotse (8516m.) and Cho Oyu (8201m.) can be seen from the Gokyo valley.

Gorakshep and an early morning hike to Kalapathar (5545m.) is the next charm of the trek. Gorakshep is the easiest route that leads to Kalapathar. Kalapathar literally means ‘black rock’ in Nepali. Kalapathar is one of the most popular spots among trekkers as it serves as the most obliging point to the highest peak of the world. Apart Everest, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Kantenga, Pumo Ri, Lhotse, Kantenga, Nuptse, and Changtse also can be viewed.
