This is a truly adventurous trekking route, the high light being the crossing of three high passes not included on the standard Khumbu region/Everest trail. As well as reaching Everest Base Camp you will cross the Renjo Pass (5388 m), the Chola Pass (5380 m) and the Kongma Pass (5535 m), offering spectacular sceneries of the surrounding mountain ranges and the thrilling experience of crossing glaciated crevasses. The trek also ascends to Kala Patthar (5545 m peak) from where you can view an incredible panorama of numerous eight thousand metre giants including Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and the closest sighting of Mt. Everest. The hospitality and service offered by the local Sherpa communities also makes this trek a genuine cultural experience.
