Everest Highpass Trekking

Summary
Everest Panorama TrekkingThe ambitious trekker’s intend on crossing high passes without the commitment to any technical climbing. Heading towards Everest we cross the Kangma La, Cho La and Renjola pass with the alpine pastures and lakes of Gokyo. From Gokyo Ri we can see the outstanding views of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Pumori, Amadablam, Lobuche and other many more mountains.

Khumbu is one of well-known areas as it forms land of the World’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest and inhabited by the friendly Sherpa people. We fly to Lukla and after a few days trek we get to the entrance of the Sagarmantha National Park. We pass through some beautiful valleys, two famous high passes and a couple of interesting monasteries among them the famous Tyangboche Monastery.

The Khumbu valley with Kala Pathar and Everest Base Camp offers you the most fantastic view over the valley with Mt. Everest rising behind. Passing the Chola Pass (5420 m) will take you to Gokyo Valley and the five lakes. Further west you will have to pass the most difficult pass on the trek, the Rinjo Pass (5338 m). From the top you have an astonishing view of Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu and many more. We will take you through the Thame valley, also known as the secret valley, newly opened for trekkers. This is a route used by the Tibetan retailers for their business. This trail also offers the oldest monastery, Thame Advance Mountaineering Training School and Thame Hydro Power, which provide electricity to the bigger villages such as Namche, Thame, Khumjung, and Khunde. We fly back to Kathmandu.
