This is the most popular and iconic trek. Follow the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay, Edmund Hillary, and those that followed to the base of the highest mountain in the world. En route, you’ll pass the centuries old Buddhist monastery of Tengboche and hike alongside the Khumbu glacier to Gorak Shep, the last permanent encampment before Everest Basecamp. In addition to Everest Basecamp, you will climb to the dizzying height of 5643 m (18,513 ft) and view one of the most magnificent panoramas in the Himalayas atop Kala Patthar. Those with a little more time and a sense of adventure can add side trips via the spectacular Kongma La pass, the Cho La pass, and the Renjo La Pass.

Weather Conditions in June

change start

The middle of June typically marks the beginning of the monsoon. Clear mornings are still possible but get increasingly less likely towards the end of the month. Be prepared for rain and hot humid weather in the low elevation valleys. The added moister means the hills are beginning to change to their vibrant monsoon green. The weather is generally a little drier than in the low valleys at high altitude, but cloud cover can be frustrating when trekking to viewpoints. As always in the spring, early morning is your best chance for clear skies.

On average there are 17 days with precipitation in June. The highest point on the trek is Kala Patthar at 5643 m. During June, expect high temperatures of around 3.5°C (38°F) and lows down to -6.5°C (20°F) at Kala Patthar.

Rating: | 4 reviews
Highlights: Cho La Pass, Gokyo, and Gokyo Ri
Difficulty: strenuous
The most popular of the three passes in the Khumbu region, the trail via Cho La (5420 m) provides stunning vistas along the high route between Everest Basecamp and the Gokyo Valley. With its series of lakes, the Gokyo Valley is probably one of the most beautiful valleys in the Khumbu Region, while the view from Gokyo Re rivals any of the trekking viewpoints in the Khumbu, including a more complete – if a bit further away – view of Mt Everest.

Everest Base Camp via Cho La, via Kongma La, and via Renjo La led by Nima T Sherpa

Beautiful walk to EBC. Nima accompanied us to the ridge above (where some of us waited) and others went on to the actual EBC area. Very good experience.

Such an incredible area! A massive challenge, especially at the higher altitudes but so so worth the breathlessness and sore muscles.

Everest Base Camp via Cho La, via Kongma La, and via Renjo La led by Nima T Sherpa

Excellent weather and conditions, though there were some tricky snow traverses. Nima and the team helped us across the snow and ice. Nima was very attentive to our stamina and well being, and was an enthusiastic guide!

Having come without crampons (not our best idea), we almost had to use a pair of socks at the suggestion of another groups guide, which he proceeded to do! Luckily another group passing in the opposite direction generously gave us theirs and we were able to cross the glacier easily.
