Himalaya Caravan Adventure offers, Everest three pass trekking to those our valuable adventure seeker, who love more adventure then normal and regular rout, Since the 1950’s, the Mount Everest National Park has been a really popular destination for climbers and trekkers alike, it is no wonder that this is the case with spectacular views like that from the Kongma La Pass (18,159ft). Our Himalaya Caravan Adventure Three Passes of Mount Everest Trek Have some spectacular crosses that are phenomenal we aim to dazzle you with them. This is a high-altitude challenge for the trekker who is looking to get off the beaten track and away from the crowds to a degree of awe inducing seclusion; this trek includes the crossing of The Cho La, The Renjo La Pass and The Kongma La Pass. Like all of our other treks in this region, this trek serves up unique perspectives and breath-taking scenic views of the Everest region. During the trek we will joyfully endure three high passes:
The Renjo La (17,521ft/5,340m)
The Cho La (17,777ft/5,420m)
The Kongma La (18,159ft/5,536m)
We also include the option of hiking to the top of two viewpoint summits which are:
Gokyo Ri (17,585ft/5,360m)
Kala Pattar (18,188ft/5,545m)
At Namche Bazaar, we will see ourselves off the beaten track and into the less travelled charm of the Bhote Koshi Valley and from there over The Renjo La Pass towards Gokyo Lakes. From Lobuche we will trek to and visit the world famous Everest Base Camp before returning to Gorek Shep, the following morning we take the spectacular hike to the top of Kala Pattar. These optional seldom-trekked adventures are beautifully unique as they link Namche Bazaar to the Gokyo Valley and then onto the Mount Everest Base Camp. Each one of the three high passes and both of the mountain summits offer tremendously breath-taking views of the snow-capped giants of the Khumba, champions on the world! Included is of course Everest, Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cholatse and Makalu. This scenery is spectacular and unrivaled worldwide; as I am sure everyone who has been here with the Himalaya Caravan Adventure would agree. This trek offers second to none scenery and supremely awakening solitude within the dramatic mountain valleys, although a demanding trek, the effort is worth every step of the way.
