HIGHLIGHTS
  • Sagarmatha, the highest national park in the world
  • Snowcapped peaks of Mt. Everest & other Himalayan giants
  • Experience local culture at beautiful Sherpa villages
Our 16-day trek crosses through three high passes over 5,000 meters, namely, Kongma La Pass (5,535m), Cho La Pass (5,380m) and Renjo La Pass (5,388m). The tour will take you to some of the most spectacular destinations in the Himalayas. Throughout the trek, you often get stunning views of over 8,000m mountains — Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and hundreds of other snow-capped Himalayan peaks.

While the trek can be defined as strenuous, you get to see great scenic places along the way. The trek starts at Lukla, and the route weaves through verdant hills, thick wooded forests and scenic valleys to reach the Renjo La Pass.

A rich variety of natural scenery along the off the beaten track of these high passes may be the main draw of this trek. However, you also get to visit several Sherpa villages along the route. Thus, besides taking you to the foot of the world's highest mountain, this trek also provides you a great insight into the local Buddhist culture and lets you experience the famous Nepalese hospitality firsthand.

This is truly an adventure of a lifetime and we are happy to help you explore the many wonders of the Everest region.

“Planning: I scheduled my trek with Unique Adventures in mid-September 2019. The plan was to beat the main portion of peak season. I knew that meant pushing back closer to Nepal’s rainy season.
Upon reaching Kathmandu, the airport in Lukla was closed due to heavy cloud & fog. I had extra days in my schedule and used them up waiting for the airport to reopen. Which did not happen in time for me to continue with my original plan.
Throughout this process Unique Adv. (Mr. Krishna) was very understanding and helpful in explaining options and alternatives, so I could make the best choice for a substitute itinerary.

Execution: From that point on I cannot speak more highly of how my trek went. My Guide (Nuri) & porter (Gopal) were always taking care of me and ensuring my safety. As we grew to know one another it made the trip even more pleasurable.
I learned many things, not only about the beautiful landscapes I was seeing, but about the culture and peoples of Nepal. My sincere thankfulness & Gratitude to Nuri & Gopal

In Closing: Based on my own personal experience with Unique Adventures, I would not hesitate to recommend them as a great, friendly, and honest, guide service.
One last note: If you are considering a trek in Nepal, understand that being flexible to change can make a huge difference. In my case it meant the difference in between Wonderful or mediocre, I chose wonderful.
“You see the world not as it is, but as you are.”
Have a great trek.

“Doing the 3 high passes without porter is definitely challenging but the reward is there at every moment. Every time you reach a pass, you have a breathtaking view which can only be offered by Nepali landscapes.”

GOOD TO KNOW
NOTE: 1. Lukla flight based from Ramechhap Airport Dear Guests! This is to inform all of you that Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) has issued a NOTAM for Taxiway Maintenance due to which Kathmandu Airport will be closed from 22:30 hours to 6:30 hour everyday effective from September 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019. During the above mentioned period there will be more traffic congestion at Kathmandu Airport which leads to Air Traffic Hold, flight delay and high possibility for flight cancellation due to flight startup queue, therefore for smooth operation of Lukla flights, all the airlines will be operating Lukla flight from Ramechhap Airport effective October 01, 2019 to December 31, 2019.
