We did the Gokyo Cho La Pass trek in December 2019 (winter time) and it was very cold, especially in the morning and night.

However, we saw one of the best views from Gokyo Ri. Our trip was organized by Base Camp Hike. And everything was perfect. Thanks, Jayaram for proving us with one of the best guides (Bishnu).

Next time, we’ll back to Nepal for Annapurna Circuit Trekking and used the same company and guide.
