Everest High Passes Trek is for those trekkers who are a bit experienced and daring to challenge the giant Himalayas of Everest region. Everest Three (3) high passes trekking include Renjo La, Gokyo valley with lake, Chola, and Kongma La. The view of panoramic of the popular Himalayas and exotic Gokyo Valley truly mesmerizes you throughout the year but on a certain period of time, it gives more beautiful and heavenly sight. Its beauty with some thrills will make the specific place in your life which you will never be able to pretermit. Renjo La pass is located in Khumbu Valley at an altitude of 5,360 m (17,585 ft). Renjo La is in the eastern front of Lungden leaving Gokyo to the west. The path to it is very difficult and passing it during winter is very hard to deal.
The major attraction of the trek is the panoramic view of some of the highest peaks of the world. From here you reach exotic Gokyo valley with a lake which further paves the way to Cho La Pass. Chola is located in Khumbu Valley at an elevation of 5,420 meters. While on the way to Cho La, one crosses Ngozumpa glacier. The trail meets classic Everest Base Camp route in the east. It is physically challenging task to ascend Chola requiring crampons for the slippery path. Kongma La pass is at an altitude of 5,535 m (18,160 ft) located between Chukhung and Lobuche village. While returning from base camp trekkers can attempt Kongma La. Among three passes (Renjo La, Cho La, and Kongma La) Kongma La is the highest pass.

OPTIONAL ADDONS (Available during check-out)
I was referred to Binod, Amrit, and the team by a friend who has worked with them before. You can't go wrong with this team - and are a sure bet in Kathmandu's competitive and somewhat sketchy environment. They were so friendly, so kind, and so knowledgeable about their country. I will remember my Everest adventure forever, and I continue to stay in touch. A beautiful experience.
Binod and the crew from NTA will help organize every detail of your trip based on what you want to see, budget and level of trekking ability. They can sort out accommodations, trekking permits, even food. The most important thing is that the NTA staff is personable and will make sure that your trek is safe and your needs are met. I Recommended to a few friends for Everest Three Passes and they have not been disappointed.
My name is Adam Miller and have just returned from Lukla after the most amazing trek to Lukla Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp. The area is more beautiful than you imagine!!! My guide was Ang Chhangbi Sherpa who was so knowledgeable of the area having incredible experience throughout the region. He was patient with me importantly it was tough which was often in the thin area above 4000m he was also incredibly authentic in the lodges helping to collect order for food , arranging extra blankets on the cold night if I wanted them Brilliant guide brilliant company and excellent trekking experience time to plan my return with Nepal Trek Adventures.
We had a very nice trip to Everest Three Passes with Dhana and purnam beautiful weather and lovely people we find up there: Dhana and Purnam were caring about us so well all the way and we are very thankful to them. Highly Recommended!!!
I joined Chris for the EBC and 3 passes Binod supplied a guide who was happy to go anywhere we wanted and when we wanted for a cheap price.
Size of Trekking Group
For Three Pass Trek, there will be one leader and Sherpa porter (1 porter for 2 trekkers). This arrangement is done for the smooth running of the campaign. It ensures that the trip will carry on as per plan even if anybody in a group gets sick. NTA can operate Everest Base Camp trek for a group of any size. But, a group of 12 are considered as optimum size. However, if you have a group of more than 12, NTA can arrange this too.

You can even enjoy hot chocolates, bread and drinks of different variety and snacks. Breakfast of a day will be served at the same teahouse or lodge where we spent the night, as per its menu. Lunch will be served on the way to destination and dinner will be served at the tea house where you spend the night. A welcome dinner, a farewell dinner, and breakfasts will be served during our stay in Kathmandu.
