Description

Home to many of the world’s highest peaks, the Himalayas form the rooftop of the world. Come experience the wonders of the range as I lead you along three major passes.

Roll with the mountain range to discover some of Earth’s most breathtaking panoramas.

The Kongma La is the highest peak that we will reach at 5,535 meters (18,159ft), which offers stunning views of the Makalu mountain, known as the throne of the gods.

Cho La, at 5,380 meters (17,650ft) is an icy pass that includes the interesting glacier crossing of Ngozumpa, the longest in Nepal, before we reach the pass.

Renjo La, at 5,388 meters (17,513ft) is a recently found pass by experienced Sherpas. Here we will discover the best of high Himalayan culture. Here is one of the most thrilling and challenging areas to trek in the Everest region.

As we climb even higher, the views that accompany us increase in wonder, as we head for the Everest Base Camp. Survey the deep Dudh Koshi river valley blend with the lush vegetation of the Sagarmatha National Park, packed with floral and faunal biodiversity.

Experience authentic Sherpa culture in the villages that we encounter during our trek to the Everest Base Camp. The warm hospitality of the families is unrivalled. Visit the highland monasteries and walls engraved with Buddhist prayers, as the flutter of the colorful prayer flags mixes with the spiritual atmosphere.

We also reach the Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri, from where full panoramas of the Himalaya are possible, and when we ascend Kalapatter, we are able to witness whole views of Everest.

Due to the high level of difficulty involved in this trek, as well as the tiresome long lengths of time hiking, participants are required to be physically fit and mentally strong, as well as having previous hiking experience.

Reserve your place now among the mythical Himalayan mountains and challenge yourself to this 20-day marathon trek, including the 3 passes of Renjo La, Cho La ad Khongma La.
