“A trek through Cho La Pass, Renjo La Pass and the Khongma La Pass with added attraction of the Everest Base camp and Gokyo Lakes”
Everest 3 Passes Trek, majorly known as the Everest High Pass Trek, is the most difficult trek of the Everest Region. With views of the base camp, Gokyo lakes and the high passes, this trek will turn you into a local with experience of the major part of the Region.
As the geographical location of Nepal is hillier than flat, we will need to climb up and down them to get to our destination. Hike along the Dudh Koshi River through the forest of pine and rhododendron. Our trekking journey starts with a 30-minutes scenic flight to the Lukla Airstrip. From there, it is all hikes up and down the valleys until we get to the first pass, the Renjo La Pass. As we cross the pass, we will reach the village with 5 bluish lakes and the Scoundrel’s Viewpoint with views of the eight-thousanders and the Ngozumpa Glacier. Encounter the second pass, the Cho La Pass before getting to Dzongla and hiking all the way up to the Everest Base Camp. Finally, we will come across the Kongma La Pass on our way to Chukkhung. With this trek, you will get the whole look of the Khumbu Region in one go.
