Cho La Pass

Cho La is a pass in Khumbu with an elevation of 5370 m.

Get in[edit]

  • From the east: after Pheriche, the trail turns off the main Everest route near Dughla (4620m) and passes through the village of Dzongla.
  • From the west: in the Gokyo valley, the trail turns off the Machherma-Gokyo route near the First Lake (4710m) and passes through the village of Thangnak (Dragnag).

Get around[edit]

The pass can be tough and may require crampons on the little glacier on top. It is advisable to obtain advanced information regarding the conditions before proceeding from Dzongla or Thangnak.


Good views of Lobuche Peak.
