In the extremities of the mountain, people discover the real soul inside them. The world has adored the classic Everest Base Camp Tour for decades. But the thrill of a genuine mountain expedition begins once you head beyond the base camp into the more remote villages in the mountain's proximity. Gokyo Valley trek, an offbeat experience for the adventure seeker, takes you 5483meters at Gokyo Ri. The views of the entire Himalayan range, i.e., more than 50 peaks of different heights, will definitely mesmerize you. This remote Himalayan Valley is bestowed with five sacred glaciers and typical Sherpa villages.

Gokyo valley lies 137km north-east of Kathmandu valley. Only attainable after a week-long trek, this remote settlement in the Upper part of Khumbu lies beyond the mountains. While keeping yourself amused with the stunning views of nature, one gets to avoid the crowd of the classic Everest base camp route. Thus, you can enjoy the best tea houses with warm hospitality. Wandering in the Dudh Koshi river valley, one attains a close relationship with nature itself. This easy and well-managed tour to Gokyo is your chance to witness the very best of the Everest region.  

Gokyo-Chola Pass-Everest Base Camp Trek commences with a stimulating Lukla flight. Then, we will move to the small town of Namche, which is basically the trading center of the entire region. Next, walking into Sagarmatha National Park, we see the playground of the red panda, black bear, Thar, Blue Sheep, Monal, and more. As we leave the path of Dudh Koshi valley, the trail takes us to villages like Dole and Machhermo. Finally, while heading to Gokyo Ri, we witness the transition of sub-tropical vegetation into the deserted mountain land with a unique landscape.

After a wonderful time in Gokyo, we will walk to the village of Lobuche and Gorakshep. These villages are our opportunity to witness the typical lifestyle of the mountain people. A final ascent then brings us to Everest base camp, the most prodigious place in the whole world. As you stand right in the feet of majestic Everest, your heart skips a beat. Leaving the base camp, we head down to Lukla. 

At the same time, the thrilling 17 days of Gokyo-Chola Pass-EBC trek pushes you to the extremes and discovers the best inside you. So, are you ready to make this arousing journey with Mystic Mountain treks?

Weather, Temp and Climate in the Gokyo and Everest Region 

The average annual temperature of Gokyo valley is 2.3 °C. Let's study the weather for different seasons in detail.  

Summer (June- August): June is the year's hottest month in Gokyo. This is the only time of the year when you can roam freely without the freezing mountain temperature. But since monsoon raindrops after mid-July, the temperature falls. The weather is still quite warm with an average temperature of 22°C. 

Winter (December- February): The winter in the Gokyo region is very very cold. January, mid-winter, has the average temperature of -14.3 °C, the lowest of the whole year. While nights are extremely cold, you can feel the warmth of the sun in the mid-day. The humidity is about 37, but the thick layer of snow makes it impossible to walk in early December. 

Autumn (Sept. - Nov.): September begins with an average temperature of 0.4 °C and goes up to -7.8 °C in November. Autumn only receives 1.2mm of rainfall in total, and the snowfall is rare. So, the weather is dry and warm in autumn. 

Spring (March-May): During spring, March begins with the average temperature of -11.5 °C and goes up to -1.6 °C in May. Although the temperature is still below the freezing point, the days are very warm with almost 9 hours of sunshine. The chances of rainfall are relatively lower and the humidity is almost 55%. 

Best Time for Gokyo-Chola Pass-Everest Base Camp Trek

Trekking in the right season means being blessed with the exemplary views and more leisurely walk. You need to plan your trekking tour when the weather is stable and warm. 

Autumn (September, October, and November) and Spring (March, April, May) is the peak season for Everest base camp trekking. The colorful blooms of the wildflower and the lush green vegetation make the overall area colorful. However, Autumn with a relatively clear sky and bright sunshine shows a better view of the mountain. The month of October receives a maximum number of tourists.

In summer the slippery path can make the trek challenging. You will need a good pair of trekking shoes and waterproof clothes for trekking in Monsoon. Lastly, we have winter, i.e., November to April. With the -5°C temperature and often snowfall, winter is quite harsh. Most of the tea houses above Namche are closed. Gokyo trek might not be possible during January; otherwise, you can head for the walk throughout the year. The expert guides at Mystic Mountain can make your trip possible anytime you want.  

Gokyo-Chola Pass-EBC Trek Difficulties

Trekking in the remote village of Nepal is definitely not easy. Even with the proper preparation, the risk can be unpredictable. But as long as you are physically fit and mentally prepared, you can head for Gokyo without any previous high-altitude trekking experience.

Difficulties in terms of distance

The trekking distance from Lukla to Everest is about 65 km. From there, the walk to Gokyo Ri is about 30 km. Thus, each day, you will be walking for 6 to 7 hours, covering almost 10 km of distance. Although 10 km sounds reasonably achievable, the steep mountain landscape makes the walk difficult. 

Although the Gokyo Trek distance seems less, the difficult mountain terrain makes it impossible to walk with comfort. In order to achieve such distance, your body should be prepared with some cardo-vascular exercise. If you are too busy for high-altitude trek training, the least you can do is running, jogging, and cycling. Some small and achievable trek around your city and activities like cycling is very beneficial. You should practice these tours a few months prior to the trek. Such training prepares you to walk without any pain, thus providing enough time to savor the beauty of nature.

Difficulties in terms of altitude

The highest altitude during the trek is Kalapatthar at 5545 meters and Gokyo Ri at 5483 meters above sea level. This is amongst the highest elevation treks in the whole work. Each day, we will gain an altitude of 500m to 1000m. Hiking in such elevation brings a high risk of altitude sickness. We can minimize the risk of altitude sickness with these precautions:

  • Rest where you are and stop getting to higher elevation for 48 hours
  • Take enough sleep during the trek
  • Take paracetamol for a headache
  • Anti-sickness medicine like promethazine can be helpful 
  • Drink enough water and keep yourself hydrated 
  • Do not smoke or drink hard alcohol 

Besides having a few acclimatization days in our package, you might still be unable to get to the top. The symptoms like headache, tiredness, vomiting, and shortness of breath can get deadly in the mountains. In such a case, we can either walk down to the lower altitude or ask for rescue. You must have insurance to cover helicopter rescue during an emergency. So, it’s wise to get the insurance in your home country before your arrival in Nepal.

Accommodation on Gokyo- Chola Pass- EBC Trek

On your Kathmandu visit, you will be accommodated in a star hotel over Thamel or you can ask us for your demanded category hotels. You can enjoy the big deluxe room with the best available facilities. Still, if you want to switch to a rather luxurious five-star hotel, you can do so on your own. We help you book the best rooms. 


As we head on the trekking trail, our accommodation will be quite basic. While traveling on the off-beaten trail to Gokyo, we will stay in a local's place with basic facilities. Some places in Everest like Namche and Lukla have quite luxurious star hotels. These tea houses provide a room on a sharing basis, usually two people. The rooms are separated by the wooden plank and feel cozy. 

Meals on Gokyo- Chola Pass- EBC Trek

In Kathmandu, we serve you with the delicious Welcome/ Farewell dinner. Also, breakfast is provided every morning in your hotel itself. For the rest of the time, you are free to have any meal of your choice in any restaurants you prefer. Kathmandu offers a wide range of choices for local and international cuisine and drinks. Try everything you ever wanted to eat. 

For the trek, all three meals will be covered in the package. The local lodge serves excellent Nepalese food Dal Bhat. You can enjoy some Chinese and Indian foods as well. The breakfast is quite basic with bread, pancakes, or oatmeal with Tea/ Coffee/ Juice. For lunch and dinner, you can have Noodles, Pasta, Thukpa, Momos, and some Indian food. The locally prepared meals are very healthy. As we stay in Namche, Lukla, and other major settlements, you can see some fine bars and bakeries. In the upper region do try to avoid meat products as they are mostly carried from the lower part and thus may have a little rancid.

Transportation on Gokyo- Chola Pass- EBC Trek

Our sightseeing tour inside the Kathmandu valley, as well as airport pickup/ drop, will be done in a private tourist vehicle. The size of the vehicle depends on the number of people. Further, the agency will also cover the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and back. The flight to Lukla should be booked a couple of weeks prior to the trek. The plane is relatively small with a single passenger seat in economy classes. The cases of the flight being canceled or delayed due to poor weather are very often. However, the alternative to the Lukla flight is additional 4 to 6 days of the walk which is not often recommended. 

Electricity, Internet, and Telephone in Gokyo- EBC Region

As Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes and Chola Pass, almost covers all parts of Everest region so we will talk about Electricity, internet and telephone facilities of the entire Everest/ Khumbu region.

But, there is no need to worry about all these facilities while in the towns like Kathmandu. Being a capital of a nation, Kathmandu offers you a very wide ranges of facilities. Electricity and Internet is almost free everywhere like your hotels, café, cyber, bars, parks, etc. from where you can connect to your family anytime. And, yes for telephone while staying in Kathmandu remember the SIM card theory.


Firstly, for telephone we suggest you to buy a SIM card while in Kathmandu. You can purchase a SIM card either of NTC (Nepal Telecom) or Ncell (Nepal Cell) at only 100 Nrs. equivalent to $1. Both SIM card will help you to do local and international calls and also you can purchase mobile data which will be helpful during the trek. Please ask help to your guide or operating company while purchasing local SIM card. And almost every tea house lodges during the trek have CDMA telephone. But they charge you few bucks for using the telephone services. 


Electricity is also available throughout the entire journey. The lower section of the trekking trails are powered by small hydroelectricity while higher up electricity is solely powered by solar panel. And be sure that there will be no charging pockets in your rooms except dining halls and it’s your responsibility to look after your gadgets while charging. However, the case is same with electricity as telephone, you have to pay some certain amount ranges from $1-$5 for charging a battery of single gadget. But the best way and recommended way to charge your phone and camera batteries is to carry a power bank or portable solar panel.


Talking about internet/ Wi-fi in Everest region, there are many places where you can have free internet connections like Lukla, Phakding, and Namche Bazaar. Almost every hotels, cafes and restaurants in Namche Bazaar have free internet connection services to their customers. While trekking above to the higher elevation, you can find internet connections in every tea house lodges but you have to pay few bucks ranging from $1-$5 for using the services. Even at the Gorakshep village, last stop before Everest Base Camp has internet facilities but, one cannot be sure about the speed of the internet in that elevation.

So, purchasing a local SIM card and use of cellular data could be the best alternative way to use internet services as many villages and high ridges covers good mobile networks in Everest region. 

Culture, Traditions, and Festivals of Everest and Gokyo Region

Trekking in Nepal always bestows you with an opportunity to experience the unique culture and lifestyles of people residing in the Himalayas. The Khumbu region is mostly inhabited by the Sherpa ethnic group along with some communities of the Rai and Magar caste. The friendly and hospitable mountain people have managed to keep their fundamental values and beliefs untouched.

During the EBC Gokyo Chola Pass tour, you get to live their unique lifestyle while being a part of their culture. You can see the farmers working in the field, people making handicrafts, or busy welcoming their guests. If you are traveling in April, you get to celebrate the Dumji festival. Also, you might get to see the Mani Rimdu dance from the local people. This festival usually falls in October. You can put on their traditional dress and practice some cultural dance moves whenever you visit. The owner of tea houses is delighted when guests express such interest in their traditions. 


Through the visit, you will help the locals uplift their economic condition and contribute to the development of the Everest region. You can make a difference in the lives of these mountain people. 

Necessary Permits for EBC-Gokyo-Chola Pass Trek

Along with your visa to enter Nepal, tourists need two kinds of permits to trek to EBC via Gokyo and Chola Pass.

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit: 

Earlier, there was a rule to issue a TIMS Card and a Sagarmatha National Park permit. However, after 2018 with the decentralization of governmental power, the TIMS card has been replaced by a local area permit that can be issued in the trek. Everest local area trek permit is officially called Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit and costs NRs. 2000 equivalent to $20. You can get this permit upon landing in Lukla. The amount goes for the local government and is invested in the development of trekking trails. 

Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit:

 Next, there's the Sagarmatha National Park permit that is usually issued in the Everest region itself. Before getting to Namche, you can see an entry point to Everest where they issue the permit. This permit costs about Rs 3000 per person. The fee is lower for the people of SAARC countries i.e., Rs 1500 per person. You will need a small photo and your visa to request the permit. 


  • Children below 10 years of age are free from all the above mentioned permits.
  • SAARC Nations: India, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Bangladesh

Thankfully, the best trekking agency in Nepal, Mystic Mountain Treks, does all the paperwork while you sit back and enjoy your journey.
