Best Season For 18 Days Chola Pass Trekking

Cho-La Pass is a trekking destination in Nepal, at 5420m/ 17782 ft from sea level. It is crucial to choose the best time to trek for a successful journey. 

Spring (March to May) is an ideal time for Cho La Pass trekking, and we know trekkers love it! You’ll be delighted by the mild weather and precise, stable conditions that make 18 days of Chola Pass trekking an absolute dream. Plus, the blooming of Nepal’s national flower, the Rhododendron, adds to the charm of trekking, making it even more enjoyable. We can’t wait to share this unforgettable experience with you!

During the Autumn season, from September to November, trekking Cho La Pass is ideal. Moderate temperatures, stable weather conditions, and excellent views of the Himalayan range and surroundings make it a perfect time to visit.

Summer in Nepal brings the monsoon season from June to August. However, areas at higher elevations, such as Cho La Pass, are experiencing less rainfall due to global warming. Meanwhile, lower parts of the region, including Lukla and Namche, may still experience some rainfall, but rainfall only occurs below 3000m. Despite this, trekking in Cho La Pass during the summer remains popular. We also organize tours of Cho La Pass during the summer season.

Trekking through Cho La Pass provides a unique experience during the winter months from December to February. Although it was not advisable to travel during winter in the past, the situation has changed due to global warming. However, the temperature can drop below freezing point, so trekkers must be well-prepared with appropriate gear and equipment.

 The cost of the Cho La Pass trek can vary based on several factors, such as the duration of the trek, group size, services included, and personal spending. 

Typically, the trek to Cho La Pass takes 18 days, including the arrival and departure dates and sightseeing in Kathmandu. However, your actual time on the Cho La Pass is 15 days. You must pay extra if you extend your duration or add a side trip or other trekking destination after the Cho La Pass. Therefore, the duration of the trek can affect your overall trekking cost.

Yes, the Chola Pass trek begins with a flight to Lukla airport from the domestic airport of Kathmandu. All the Everest region trekking destinations start only after getting to Lukla airport. After getting to Lukla airport, trekkers pass through the beautiful settlements of Phakding, Namche bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, Dzongla, and Thangnang via Chola Pass.

The trail to Chola Pass is an adventurous trail that connects the villages of Dzongla and Thangnang. The starting point, Lukla to Namche Bazar, is a gentle descent. As you trek further from Lukla, the trail ascends steeply and gets to Gorakshep. From Gorakshep, you’ll travel to Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar, which is a little adventurous. Then, the trail led towards crossing Chola Pass, the most adventurous of all the trails.

Although Nepal’s native language is Nepali, the guides in Nepal are fluent in English, German, and other languages. Different Nepali guides have proficiency in different languages. From whichever country you are from, we can manage a guide per your preference and the language you are comfortable with.

Yes, the chance of ice is along the way to Chola Pass, especially during winter. You will likely get a khar pass and ice along the trail, so follow the guide’s steps. However, the chances of ice are less during the autumn season.

No, the trekking trail to Chola Pass doesn’t require any technical climbing, so trekkers don’t need ropes during the Pass. But You need to have good trekking equipment with you.

Throughout the journey to Chola Pass, you’ll stay in a local hotel called a tea house/ lodge. The village locals run the hotels, providing essential but comfortable resting points. The hotels offer local to international meals during your stay. Whether you try local or international meals, they are delicious and hygienic.

Fantastic Cho La pass trek

We were four of us. It was a fantastic trek in one of the highest passes of the Everest region. Trekking in Chola Pass has been on my bucket list since I trekked to Everest Base Camp. As an adventure seeker, I always try something challenging, and this time, I choose Chola Pass. I did my Everest Base Camp trek with Boundless Adventure, and after their best service, I decided on them for my Chola Pass.

Mr. Dambar perfectly managed everything. He customized my itinerary as I preferred. My guide was so friendly and encouraged me in every step. The entire Boundless Adventure team is like a family—the most recommended trekking company. I will choose them for future Adventurous activities in Nepal.

Unforgettable journey in Chola Pass

I heartily thank the entire team of Boundless Adventure for providing us with an unforgettable journey in Chola Pass, which I did last October 2023. I needed clarification about whether the forecast. However, I was afraid even though I trekked with my friend. But I was so encouraged by the whole team.

My guide became my friend throughout my journey and guided me in the best possible way. Due to the assistance and perfect service of Boundless Adventure, I completed my journey with very few challenges. I am so satisfied with the excellent service and thank you again to the entire team for my logistical support.

Trekking in Chola Pass

My friend recommended Boundless Adventure; I messaged them through WhatsApp and got a quick response. After listening to and analyzing my preference, Mr. Dambar Khadka suggested trekking in Chola Pass. He assured me that, as an experienced trekker, I could efficiently complete the trek. The team of Boundless Adventure welcomed me at the airport in a hospitable manner, and then they arranged the finest hotel as per my preference.

When I was trekking, they were taking my updates on whether I was doing well or not. The guide also has a crucial role in completing my journey. My guide was highly experienced and fluent in English. There was no compromise in any service. I appreciated their dedication toward work and loved their sound service. We have planned to go to Manaslu next year with the same company and crew.
