This is an epic journey to one of Nepal’s most famous treks that will take you over some of the highest mountain passes in the world. We will be crossing three mountain passes between 5000m and 5535m. Magnificent landscapes, imposing and prestigious peaks, tapering ridges and colorful villages contribute to turning this trek into an unforgettable experience.
It is possible to walk this trek in either direction, but acclimatisation is easier if you travel from east to west per our itinerary. This means that from Lukla, the entrance point of the Everest region, we will hike to to Dingboche, then Chhukung, crossing the 5,535m Kongma La Pass (the hardest of the 3 passes) to Lobuche. From Lobuche we will trek to Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, crossing the 5,420m Cho La Pass to Gokyo, and finally from Gokyo hike over the 5,345m Renjo La Pass down to Thame, Namche Bazar and finally reach back Lukla, from where we will fly back. This trek offers so many stunning views and great experiences; undoubtedly giving you many fond memories. It will be a circuit trek meaning that you will not have to walk on the same trek up and down.
This trek is rather hard, but people in a reasonably fit shape can do it. If you are in doubt as to your physical ability we recommend adding a porter (you can book such via check-out on this site).
We are looking forward to taking you on an adventure of a lifetime.
