The Everest high passes trek is one of the classic treks of Nepal and the world visiting Everest Base Camp followed by crossing Kongma-La Pass, Cho La and Renjo La passes.
Everest 3 high passes trek starts with an exciting flight to the mountain airstrip at Lukla, from here we follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers Tenzing and Hillay for the walk into Everest Base Camp. We trek the classic Everest Trail to Dingboche, with dramatic views of Ama Dablam and the Lhotse-Nuptse face before we go over Kongma-La. The Khumbu Everest region is a Buddhist Sherpa country where you will see colourful prayer flags, Om mane Padme hum crafted mani walls and orange colored monasteries along the way. The Everest high pass trek is more challenging alternative to the traditional trek to Everest Base Camp with an ascent of Kala Patar and Gokyo Ri as well as crossing the Himalayan mountain passes of Kongma-La, Cho La and Renjo La. These are rugged high passes that link the major valleys of the Everest region.
This is also less crowded trek in Everest. After we visit the Everest Base Camp, we walk out over the Cho La pass into the Gokyo valley rather than retracing the same trail back to Namche as per the standard Everest Base Camp trek itinerary. While at Gokyo lakes we will climb Gokyo Ri for views of the Everest massif panorama and in the afternoon we explore the numerous glacial lakes in Gokyo area. After crossing our last pass among three the Renjo La pass we descend into the Thame valley, one of the main trading routes with Tibet. Now we walk back to Namche Bazaar, monjo and Lukla from where we fly back to Kathmandu accompanied by a thousand memories and a huge sense of achievement –
