Everest High Passes - challenging trekking adventureAs the name suggests, this high altitude trek connects Everest base camp, gokyo lakes and takes in the village of Thame. Birthplace of Tenzing Norgay via Kongma La, Cho La and Renjo La high passes.

Quite challenging and requiring a higher degree of fitness, but well within the scope of the seasoned trekker as there is no technical climbing and yet  a real "mountaineering" experience is achieved.

As with most of our treks, Everest High Passes is a lodge based trek, thereby ensuring that most of the money you pay goes directly to the local economy, so the local people benefit directly from their visitors. It also ensures that you will have plenty of opportunities to get to know your hosts.

Your holiday starts in Kathmandu where you will be picked up from the airport on arrival and transported to your comfortable hotel in the heart of the tourist district of Thamel. Day 2 is spent sightseeing in the Kathmandu valley. Day 3 we fly to Lukla and begin our trek via Namche Bazaar where we acclimatise for a couple of days.
