Gokyo Cho la pass EBC & Kalapattar Trek

Hello all,

Because of safty reasons and why it’s more fun I’m looking for some trekking partners to trek the Gokyo Cho la pass EBC & Kalapattar Trek (or maybe at first to the EBC & Kala Patar – that is flexible). If you have some other ideas we cold talk about that, my plans aren’t set in stone.

I want to trek without a porter or guide, because I’m looking for the adventure and want to save money (for the Cho La Pass I know it is better to trek with a guide and that’s why my plan is it to ask some group to join them for this trek – a friend of me who did the trek told me that’s not a problem).

I have 3 weeks time for the trek and want to start at the 15 of November, but it can be the previous or the week after.

If interested in any of them just let me know.

  1. Hi,
    I read about this trip and the variations possible for it an dam interested to hear more of your plans. I’d prefer to go non-guided and to take about 3 weeks as well, so there is time for dawdling and side-trips. Are you still looking?

  2. Hi Wayne,

    In the moment I have detail plans and I also booked my fligths. Me and my trekking partner arrive in KTM on the 21.11 and flight back on the 14.12.

    Our general plans are like this map (here you can see a rough plan – I can explain you some details if you are interessted): https://www.trekhimalayan.com/uploaded/Nepal/peak-climbming/everest-region/MtChhunkungRipeakclimbingmap.jpg

    We will go at first to the EBC (to the right ) and then we want to trek the complete circle (Note: * without Island peak base camp & but we will trek to Gokyo Peak and the 5th lake).

    If you are interessed, you are very welcome to join the trip. Get in contact with me and we can talk about that.


  3. Hi Stefan,
    We are two travel partners planning to explore this region at the same time like you. We are planning to start our trek from Seller (on Nov 22nd) , Selleri is two days trek away from Jeri. Btw. Are you flyng to Lukla or starting from Jeri?
    If you are interested, you may join us anywhere during the trek.

    • Hi Mansih,

      Thanks for you contact, but we want to fligth to Lukla and have exact plans about our route.


    • Stefan, thanks for your response. Oh, now you are flying to Lukla. it’s ok. Since the way in, way out are in the same route, definitely we will come across. We will inform our contact number once we enter Nepal . Get in touch!

      If you are trekking ahead of us, certainly you can help us by providing the vital info about the accessibility of the passes.

      Happy and safe trekking!
      -Team Manish & Swapnil
