Classic Everest trekking, EBC, Cho La Pass, Gokyo circuit trek is best way to explore the Khumbu region and it will be prefect Himalayan holiday for every adventure hikers. When we propose you a classic Everest trekking trip, some travelers might understand it as Jiri to Everest base camp, but we want to make it clear to you that it is not this route, but this is the trekking trail where you explore the Everest base camp on classic way. This means, your trip will be up to Cho La pass (5300m), Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Ri; not only EBC. The trek will start same as other treks in Everest area, 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and we follow the same route as we follow Everest base camp (Phakding (2610m) to Namche Bazaar (3500m) and other days, Tengboche (3850m), Dingbuche (4350m), Lobuche (4950m), Ghorakshep (5140m) and finally Kalapatthar (5545m)). In between these days we will acclimatize at Namche Bazaar and Dingboche for 2 days to reduce acute mountain sickness. After exploring the Everest Base Camp, next day, in early morning i.e. dawn, we will cross the Cho La pass (we need to cross Cho La pass in the morning as soon as possible because in the afternoon there might be problems of rock sliding or rock falling down). On that day we will stay at Thangnak (4700m) and other days continually visit Gokyo Lake (4790m), Gokyo Ri (5360m), Dole (4200m) and very known Namche Bazaar. From Namche, our hiking will be for couple of days to get Kathmandu and conclude the trip.
This trip is known as Everest circuit trek because we will walk from Namche Bazaar to Namche Bazaar as circuit. We will cross Khumbu and Imja Khola valleys and various Sherpa villages in the trail so we ensure you that the trip will be not only adventurous walking holiday but also cultural journey toward the Sherpa villages. Thus, this is one of the best trips for 20 days to explore entire Everest region.
