FAQs

The Everest Base Camp Cho La Pass Gokyo trek is classified as a moderate-grade trek in the Everest region. However, certain sections of this trek can pose challenges, especially for those with limited trekking experience. The trail to Everest Base Camp involves rugged terrain with constant elevation changes, requiring uphill and downhill hiking. Throughout the trekking trail, you'll encounter rocky areas and boulders.

During the journey to Gokyo, you'll traverse glaciers, where the trail can become slippery. Crampons and trekking poles are highly beneficial in such areas, providing better traction and stability, thus facilitating a more manageable walk.

Altitude sickness can occur at high elevations due to a lack of oxygen. On the Everest Base Camp Cho La Pass Gokyo trek, altitudes exceed 5,000 meters. Symptoms typically start around Namche Bazaar and include nausea, insomnia, and dizziness. Proper acclimatization and rest are crucial to prevent altitude sickness. Actual Adventure prioritizes client well-being, organizing trips with ample rest breaks and experienced guides to ensure a safer and more comfortable trek.

Securing travel insurance before embarking on the Everest Base Camp Cho La Pass Gokyo trek is highly advisable due to the unpredictable nature of high-altitude trekking. At altitudes exceeding 5,000 meters, circumstances can change unexpectedly.

The critical coverage provided by travel insurance for this trek primarily revolves around medical expenses. In the event of an emergency evacuation, which can cost over 300,000 rupees without insurance, travel insurance ensures your expenses are covered.

Experience for a lifetime!

It was one of the toughest treks I did so far and away more challenging to my expectations. Had I not chosen Everest Base Camp Treks and tours I may not have completed my trek. Pasang my guide took a very good care of me during the whole trek and I’m thankful I didn’t get major altitude sickness. The team members of the company were very helpful and king. They gave me very homely environment and treated as a part of their family. Had a wonderful time in Nepal and I’ll cherish these moments for forever.
