Everest Circuit Trek is an amazing trip that takes you over Cho La Pass connecting Everest Base Camp and the pristine Gokyo Lake. This trek offers magnificent views of Mt Everest and other Himalayan peaks as we ascend to Gokyo Ri and Kala Patthar.

Everest Circuit Trek starts after an adventurous flight to the small airstrip in Lukla. From there we will trek to Namche Bazar – also known as the gateway of Everest. After a day of acclimatization in Namace Bazar, we go through unique Sherpa settlements overlooking the Himalayan peaks heading west towards the glacial Gokyo Lake. On our resting day at Gokyo we will ascend the summit of Gokyo Ri (5360m) with breathtaking views of Mt Everest, Mt Lotshe, Mt Ama Dabalam and other Himalayan peaks. Our journey continues over Cho La Pass (5420m) to the village of Lobuche and onward to Everest Base Camp – the heart of Mt Everest. We will reach the view point of Kala Patthar (5550m) where you can get a close up view of Mt Everest. Unique Sherpa villages, alpine scenery, monasteries, the high pass, summits, picturesque glacial lakes and glaciers, unlimited views of Mt Everest and other +8000m peaks are some of the many highlights of Everest Circuit Trek.
