Start and end in Kathmandu, the Everest High Passes trip is a guided trekking trip that takes 22 days. You will travel through Dingboche, Lukla, Gorakshep and 12 other destinations in Nepal. Everest High Passes is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The most comprehensive trek in the Everest region with 3 high passes, spectacular views from Gokyo Ri and Kala Pattar and a vist to Everest base camp.. This challenging trek will more than satisfy the ambitious trekker intent on crossing high passes without the commitment of any technical climbing. Heading towards Everest we cross the Kongma La to the Everest Base Camp and Kala Pattar. After taking in the classic climbing routes to the summit of Everest we complete a spectacular traverse over the Cho La to the alpine pastures and lakes of Gokyo. From Gokyo Ri we gain further outstanding views of Everest before heading over the Renjo La with views into Tibet, to the wild upper Bhote Kosi. This trek traverses the entire Everest region and provides all the highlights you would expect with a mixture of local villages and Sherpa culture. Our nights are spent in a combination of wilderness camps and our exclusive private eco campsites, as well as handpicked eco lodges. If you are highly motivated and want to experience the absolute best of what the Everest region has to offer, then this is the trek for you.

“Amazing experience! The crew made us comfortable at any time and our guide Rinzin look us after at best throughout the trek! We decided to skip Cho La pass because of bad weather but we still manage to recover and complete the Renjo La pass with a little additional walk up and down the valleys. Nonetheless, only a person withdrew and we all concluded the hike Diamox free! Having hygienic food cooked and safe shelters already arranged after a long day in the highs, it is an incredible value! Lastly I loved the High Passes itinerary (also the amended one) since it brings you out of the commercial route to the EBC... Kongma La stretches you to the limit early on and Gokyo is the icing on the cake! Could not recommend more!”

“I wanted to note that I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and I think WE does an excellent job from all aspects. Our group of 8 worked very well together; had lots of fun and from my perspective is the right number of people. I would definitely recommend WE and will travel with you again.”

“Everest Base Camp & High Passes was a great trip. To be honest harder than I expected and if doing it again would train much harder to prepare. We were blessed with an awesome group (13 people) who all got along really well; We had a great guide in Subal who in turn was supported by an excellent group of Sherpas, Cookie and cook assistant(s) and porters and I enjoyed spending our days travelling with them. Prior to leaving Canada, I considered bringing my own down bag & parka but in the end opted to use the ones provided by WE and they turned out to be very suitable for the trip.”
