After this tour, we drive for a visit to the famous Boudhanath Stupa (said to be the largest in the world) and a significant center of Tibetan culture in Kathmandu. The stupa is designed to be like a giant mandala (a representation of the Buddhist cosmos). After lunch, we return to our hotel to get refreshed then we take our time to prepare for trek.

Our trek follows on the gradual trail with some ups and downs overlooking magnificent views of the great Himalaya. Along the way we can spot wild fauna like pheasant, musk deer, or a herd of Himalayan Thar. The trail goes gradually down up to Kayangjuma. The path eventually reaches Sanasa which is the major trail junction to Gokyo valley and Everest Base Camp. The track then follows through the pine forests and after we cross the prayer flags festooned bridge over Dudh Koshi River, we reach Phunki Thenga, a small settlement with a couple of teahouses and a small army post amidst the alpine woods. After having a relaxed lunch at Phunki Thenga we then have a little tough climb steep up through the pine forests while before we reach Tengboche.

On our way from Chhukung, our trail goes up over loose scree as we make a beeline for the Khongma La; on reaching the top, we encounter cairns bound in prayer flags whispering odes of prayers for those who lost their lives, marks of the pass. Behind us is the landscape of icy lakes ahead down which is the Khumbu Glacier. Our final descent is a tough phase which tests our patience in the trek today. After passing some teahouses on our way to Lobuche, we climb higher onto the terminal moraine of the Khumbu glacier, passing a row of stone monuments built in memory of Sherpas who have died on mountaineering expeditions to Mt Everest. From here the trail drops and follows the west side of the valley to Lobuche. The sunset on Nuptse from here is a breathless experience. As we climb the moraine on the far side, the trail turns north through Khumbu Glacier and takes us to Lobuche for a well earned rest tonight. B. L. D

A real early start is required to reach the Everest Base Camp. It takes several hours as the trail weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. After a brief lunch and rest, we take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. Only upon reaching the Everest Base Camp do we really appreciate the Everest climbers who brave the risky route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. On the return leg, we can take a higher route to get a grand view of the Khumbu icefall and the route to the South Col. We return to Gorakshep for a restful night. B. L. D

Today is the pinnacle point of our trip. We start early in the morning after some cuppers to catch the dramatic views from Kalapattar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature of approx (-10 to -14 C) departure beforehand. Further, there is always the potential for chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kalapattar we can pause to catch our breath at several terrific view points to snap pictures. After several hours of ascent, we will peak out at Kala Patthar. From this juncture, we scramble to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kalapattar where our eyes focus taking in the mind-boggling Himalayan Panorama, wandering from one mighty massif to another. We click as many pictures as we can and take in views with our mind's eye to last for a lifetime. From here we take the path to Dzongla; after crossing a stream we come through a fork and later curving round to the wide gravelly river bed of the stream. As it flows southwestward, the trail runs across it and climbs the ridge ahead. From the grassy ridge ahead, as the trail runs across to southeast from where we can see soaring heights of Ama Dablam and Kangtega-Thamserku while Taboche looms highly ahead. Pheriche village is visible down in the distance. We will also have visibility of a hillock in Chukpi Lhara and its memorials and the lodges of Dugla. As the ridge veers northward, the vast Chola Lake spreads below Mt. Cholatse. The lake stays with us over a long stretch until we descend to a wide basin. The trail climbs up a spur and descends steeply to another broad basin. After an hour walk transverse from the basin and shortly after crossing a wobbly bridge, we reach Dzongla. We spend the night in one of the local lodges at Dzongla (only very basic lodges are available hereabouts). B. L. D

We get up early in the morning to get out of our lodge to be greeted by the mesmerizing sight of Cholatse looming over. Today is going to be one of the gritty days of our trip. The walk begins as we transverse through a spur extending westward from Dzongla. The path descends to a basin across which meanders a murmuring stream crusted with ice at places. In about an hour, we reach the top of the basin readying for the triumph on ChoLa. As we gain height, the view back gets increasingly more captivating; the Chola Lake begins to appear and the Ama Dablam in its pyramidal manifestation presides over a range of mountains on the south as Cholatse soars on the west. Climbing the incline is not easy; it is steep, but made worse by boulders over some of which we will have to scramble. We need to be alert as rocks can be glazed by ice. The final climb to the ChoLa can be a little tricky as the trail curves round the bergschrund. Upon reaching the top, we see prayer flags, strung across cairns, flapping in the strong wind. Scenery of imposing peaks in all directions is breathtaking. Although long, the path leading down to Dragnak can be easily made out from the pass because it is just decent but can be hazardous if rocks are glazed by ice, a bit of cautiousness is needed. We reach Dragnak, a rather more considerable hamlet with a small village. Stepping out of the settlement, we are greeted by fabulous mountain views. The trail brings us to the Ngozumpa glacier edge after short walk, which is longest glacier in Nepal. Reaching the other side of the glacier, we get views of the second of the Gokyo lakes on the series of six lakes. A short distance away is the third Gokyo Lake. On the edge of this lake stands the village of Gokyo but before this, we finally give rest to our weary bodies in Thangnag for the night. B. L. D

After enjoying blissful night of rest, we leave Dragnak and head for the lakes at Gokyo. We follow a very scenic path to Pangka and then descend slightly, following one of the melting rivers which flow down the west side of the Ngozumpa Glacier. We climb a steep rocky incline into the valley by the side of the glacier, passing the first of the holy lakes. We soon arrive at the second lake, crossing the path which heads across the glacier to Cho La - our route to Thame and Namche, later in the trek. The third lake is known as Dudh Pokhari (Milk Lake) and on its eastern shore is the settlement of Gokyo. Walking by the side of the lake, the scenery is splendid with the summits of Cho Oyu and Gyachung Kang reflected in its emerald green waters. Overnight by the side of the Gokyo lakes - B. L. D

As we climb, the summits of Everest, Lhotse and Makalu slowly come into view and the sight from the summit of Gokyo Ri itself, is said to be one of the premium sights to behold in the Everest region - some say it is even better than that from Kala Pattar. After lunch it is a short walk back to Gokyo for our overnight. B. L. D

Its important that we make a break at dawn today as we have to trace our trail up to Lunde after conquering of Renjo La. As there is no alternative to Lunde for overnight today, we need to start early. Down from the Gokyo Valley, we leave the main trail and turn to Renjo La trail by Dudh Pokhari. After about 3 hours, we gain the Renjo La where a dazzling vista awaits. The Everest itself, Lhotse, Cholatse and Taboche can be seen shining in the sun. Views from Renjo La are much like that from Gokyo Ri with third Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Village beneath the gray smear of Ngozumpa Glacier. Continuing on from the pass, the trail winds down a stone staircase and then scrambles over loose scree to reach the south bank of a small lake called the Angladumba Tsho. The presence of ice on the trail while descending down can make our descent a bit dangerous. Along the way we see Relama Tsho and Renjo Lake. However, we walk down through narrow valley clogged with giant boulders to Lunde where there is a support Lodge but it can be closed often. If this turns out to be the case, We walk further for another hour from Lunde to get to Marlung on the east bank of the Bhote Kosi. Overnight at Lunde or Marlung - B. L. D

From Lungden, the route turns west and the trail is almost level as we head up the Bhote Kosi Valley, once a popular trading route into Tibet. Along the way we pass many prayer flags and mani stones, all pinpointing to the Tibetan Buddhist culture of this area. After descending to the Bhote Kosi the trail climbs steeply to Thame. From here there are good views of the peaks of Teng Kangpoche and Kwangde. To the north is the Nangpa La, the pass leading to Tibet. Thame Gompa is situated above the village overlooking the valley and is the site for the famous spring celebrations of the Mani Rimdu festival. We crash out in Thame for the night. B. L. D

We had an incredible experience booking our Nepal Everest Three High Passes Trek with Mountain Sherpa Trekking in March 2023. This family-owned Sherpa company made everything seamless. The online booking process was secure, and Mr. Pasang Sherpa handled our initial inquiries with great care and efficiency. He promptly answered all our questions, instilling confidence in our decision to book with them.

Upon our arrival in Nepal, every detail was meticulously arranged, from airport pickup to hotel accommodations and our flight to Lukla. Most importantly, our Sherpa guide, Mr. Migmar, was exceptionally kind, responsive, and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed his company throughout the trek. The food and lodging provided by Mountain Sherpa Trekking exceeded our expectations, and our guide ensured we were well taken care of every step of the way.
A highlight of our trip was having dinner at Sumba Sherpa's home with his family. Sumba, the youngest brother of Pasang Sherpa, is part of the team running the company alongside his older brothers, Tandi and Pasang. Their genuine hospitality and dedication to providing authentic Sherpa adventures truly set them apart.
Overall, our experience with Mountain Sherpa Trekking was outstanding, and we wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone seeking a genuine Sherpa adventure in Nepal, whether it's a high passes trek or any other trip.

FAQs

Everest High Pass Trek is a challenging trek, involving three high-altitude passes commonly known as Kongma La Pass, Chola Pass (5,368 meters), and Renjo La Pass. You should be reasonably physically fit to fully enjoy this trek. If you are moderately fit both physically and mentally, you can join this trek. Due to steep ascents and descents, rocky paths, rock steps, and some moraine walking, this trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Individuals with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor. We suggest engaging in physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, and hiking before embarking on your journey.

Our package price includes accommodation for you in deluxe rooms at the best three-star or five-star category hotels in Kathmandu, with a healthy breakfast included. Along the Everest High Pass trek routes, wherever available, we provide rooms with attached baths, including hot showers, in quality mountain lodges.

Our all-inclusive 3-star hotel Everest High Pass trek package costs US$ 2870 per person. This package includes 4 nights in a deluxe room at a three-star hotel in Kathmandu (Hotel Lo Mustang), including a healthy breakfast.

Before embarking on the Everest High Pass trek, we strongly recommend a thorough review of the terms and conditions outlined in your travel insurance policy. The altitudes on this trek exceed 5,535 m/18,159 ft, and it's important to note that many insurance companies may not provide coverage for elevations at such heights. For information on reliable insurance providers, please visit our suggested link: Nepal Travel Insurance

Ensuring coverage for helicopter evacuation from the mountains is crucial in case of emergencies. Occasionally, weather conditions may cause flight delays from Lukla to Kathmandu. In such instances, arranging a helicopter flight back to Kathmandu for your international connection might be necessary. Therefore, your insurance policy should encompass the expenses related to a helicopter transfer from Lukla to Kathmandu if the need arises. Rest assured, we are committed to providing support and assistance to our valued clients in emergency situations.

Certainly, all our guides have successfully completed a comprehensive 45-day training program at the Hotel Management and Tourism Center in Nepal. In addition to this, they have received specialized high-altitude first aid training through the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP). We understand the importance of trust and transparency, which is why you have the option to verify the profiles and training certificates of our trekking guides.

It's noteworthy that our guides are not only extensively trained professionals but also 100% local Sherpas from the Khumbu Region. What sets them apart is their wealth of experience, with the majority boasting over 20 years in the field. Rest assured, your trek will be led by seasoned, knowledgeable guides who have an intimate understanding of the region and a commitment to ensuring a safe and enjoyable journey for you.

Yes, our commitment to excellence extends to the well-being of our entire team, from Sherpa guides and cooks to porters and drivers. Rest assured, all our staff members are fully insured and equipped with the necessary gear for their roles. We prioritize their comfort and safety, providing high-quality clothing to ensure they are well-prepared for the journey. What sets us apart is not just our dedication to our clients but also our values as a 100% local Sherpa-owned company. Caring for our staff and contributing to the local community is at the heart of our ethos. We believe that a well-supported team ensures a seamless and enjoyable experience for our trekkers.

That very much depends on how much use you intend to get out of it. Reasonable quality gear is available in Kathmandu for a fraction of the price of the real deal. We will help out you to find good standards gears in Kathmandu. You also rent out down gear and sleeping bags, which are the most sensible option if you don’t think you’ll be using them again for a while.
