Option 1: The first alternative that involves a challenging #trekking route is the Everest Base Camp Trek with Chola Pass and Gokyo Lakes Trek. This trek is highly recommended as it involves both a trip to Gokyo Lakes and then crossing a high mountain pass with a trip to base camp.
Option 2: Another option is the Gokyo Lakes Trek, which is a 12-day journey to the highest freshwater lake system in the #world . It takes you on a #journey to the pristine lakes and the most scenic point on Everest, Gokyo Ri. You can also choose to trek to Everest Base Camp, adding a few days to the Gokyo trip.
Option 3: For those who choose to need a more relaxing way of visiting base camp, they can go with the Everest Base Camp Trek with the Helicopter Return Package. It involves a trip to base camp along the main trail, which is followed by a return helicopter flight to Kathmandu.
Option 4: A better alternative for a long, similar, strenuous journey would be the Everest Three High Passes Trek. The classic #trip also includes crossing two other high mountain passes, Kongma La and Renjo La Pass, along with a trip to Gokyo Lakes, Chola Pass, and Base Camp.
