Trek Description:

Everest chola pass trekking is the most popular trekking areas in Nepal, here you see 4 mountains over 8000 meters known in climbing as the 'death zone' due to the lack of oxygen at this height and of course Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. You will experience views that you can find nowhere else on Earth, mighty glaciers, towering peaks and a culture virtually untouched by time. Everest treks are for adventurous people but there are routes that enable the less experienced trekkers to still enjoy this magical place. September to December is the busiest time in this region as the views are amazing and the weather is good. By travelling with a guide or porter it guarantees you a bed space which can be hard to find at this time. Many people end up sleeping in the dining room in the busy season!

The main center of this region is Namche Bazaar, situated on the side of the hill just below the Khumjung village. Namche Bazaar is known as the 'Switzerland of Nepal', beautifully kept with a fantastic Saturday market and chances to meet many of the local people. The flight into Lukla to access this area provides you with magjestic views over some of the highest peaks in the worls, it is an experience in itself. The peaks you will see include Choyu, Everest, Lhotse and Makalu.

The trek follows the same path that leads to Everest Base Camp the trail then splits to reach the Gokyo Cho La Pass (this can also be included as an extension to the Base Camp trek). Views extending over isolated mountain lakes, formidable glaciers and Mount Everest are here to be enjoyed.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March - May) is the best trekking season for the trekking and mountaineering in Nepal Because by that time the Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate which offers magic view of snow cap mountains and valley each day. Spring Season is such a beautiful time to see many different flowers, plants and rare animals especially Rhododendron flower along the way is the major attraction. Walking and trekking is also very suitable during this season.

Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February). This season provides a different scenic views each hours unpredictable weather ,heavy monsoon rainfall mostly in Annapurna region it is very much clear to trek around Mustang by summer time because of altitude you can skip the rain if you go those areas., so ,Everest, Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.
