Join the adventurous Everest High Pass Trek to accomplish the feat of trekking on one of the most famed and sought after trekking expedition to the Everest Base Camp, Gokyo valley, Kalapatthar and the pristine lakes and glaciers in the Gokyo and Everest region. Explore the wilderness of the surrounding areas of the trekking trail, ancient monasteries and gompas, culturally rich villages, remote and adventurous terrains, formidable and challenging high passes including the Cho La (5368m), Kongma La (5535m) and Renjo La (5360m) passes, the diverse floral vegetation and faunal presence, occasional glimpses from the wildlife species to the trekkers and splendid views of the eight mountains above eight thousand meters. One of the difficult trekking experiences, this adventure never disappoints the trekkers, no matter the number of trekking expeditions on the same trail.

Everest High Pass Trek begins with the Kathmandu city tour in the vibrant Kathmandu valley rich with the Temples and shrines where Hinduism and Buddhism rub their shoulder together to display cultural harmony. We shall visit the Pashupatinath Temple, the Buddhist shrines of Boudhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath Stupa (also called the “Monkey Temple”) and the well preserved Patan Durbar Square. We take a scenic flight to the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla on the next day, followed by the march on the classic trekking route accompanied by the torrential Dudh Koshi River, lush valleys, landscape that seems to change every single day, monasteries, gompas, prayer wheels and fluttering prayer flags that radiate the Buddhist faith, lofty peaks standing proud since time unknown and the seldom vertiginous suspension bridges en route. After the triumph over the Kongma La pass, we head on towards the Everest Base Camp, one of the star attractions of the Everest High Pass Trek. The glittering and majestic Khumbu icefall and hike to witness the breathtaking view of the world’s tallest peak from Kalapatthar shall follow the trekking to the cobalt-blue lakes at Gokyo. We take on the might of Gokyo peak and head over to conquer the formidable Renjo La pass to reach the settlement at Marlung. Further along the classical trekking trail we reach the lively and popular Sherpa town of Namche Bazzar and then to another Sherpa settlement of Lukla from where we shall fly back to Kathmandu. The ancient trading routes, medieval aged cultural ensembles, breathtaking views from the Gokyo Ri and Fifth lake are the other highlights of this trek.

Everest High Pass Trek requires the trekker be a real adventurer with previous trekking experience, positive attitude and mental strength along with above average physical fitness. Ability to adapt to the remote environment, steep and rough terrains and an average of 6-8 hours of walk shall be the requirement of this trek. An adventure worth experiencing, this trek fills your heart with immense pride and pleasure you might have never felt before. Join hands with Luxury Holiday Trek to make your trip memorable and safe.
