                                          (19 days)

The ultimate challenge to the ‘just-do-it’ ambitious trekker. This moderate to challenging
graded trek takes to you to the foot of Mt. Everest traversing across the high Cho La pass at
an elevation of 5420 m. Also included is the opportunity to trek to the summit of both
Gokyo Ri [5340m.] and Kala Pattar [5554m.] for magnificent views of Everest, Lhotse,
Nuptse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. A visit to Everest Base Camp will give you the chance to have
a       closer       look        at       the        spectacular       Khumbu         Icefall.

Beginners or inexperienced climbers can take this trek, but this trek requires one to be
moderately fit. Considering the snow conditions over Cho La Pass, the trek may not be
advisable during winter [January & February] and the monsoon season [July & August].
