With the amazing views of the landscapes, the Everest High Passes Trek carries us to the Everest Base Camp, Kalapatthar, Gokyo Valley and its serene Lakes. This trek familiarizes trekkers to the far-flung and intact Sherpa village of Marlung and the cloister village of Thame.

Since it is very much popular for its outstanding sceneries of contiguous massifs. The uninterrupted hiking on the mountains can really be exasperating, hence, after the elongated trekking; the cordiality and service provided by the native Sherpas can make your night pleasant.

The Kongma La pass is the uppermost pass among them. Cho La pass is an icy and thought-provoking glacier crossing of Ngozumpa before the permit, whereas, Renjo La pass is just initiated by the expert Sherpa. Yielding the trek at Kala Patthar (5,545m/18,192 ft) will display you with the most eccentric panorama of neighboring Eight-Thousands (Pumori, Nuptse, and Lhotse) and the nearby spring of Mt. Everest. This is a mixture of adventure and ethnic Himalaya ethos at its overriding.

Then we make our way to the ensuing great pass, the Renjo La, making a night in Marling we track a little of the route used by the Tibetan Traders through Nangpa La to reach Thame.
