This classic trek to Mt. Everest is composed of three high passes crossing Cho La and Renjo La Passes. The trek begins with an exciting flight in a Twin Otter plane to the mountain airstrip at Lukla, from here we walk towards the Everest Base Camp. Everest Trek through high passes is a challenging alternative to the traditional trek to Everest base camp with an ascent of Kala Pattar and Gokyo Ri as well as crossing the Himalayan mountains passes of Cho La and Renjo La.
Highlights of the Everest High Passes Trek
This trek to Everest through high passes is a window into traditional Sherpa villages and 'Gompas', Buddhist culture, sacred peaks and the valley. Throughout the trek, we are surrounded by spectacular 8000 meter peak panoramas coupled with welcoming and friendly villagers.
