Khumbu High Pass Trekking is one of the most popular trekking trails in the Everest Region which provides the trekking enthusiast with an exceptional experience of the three passes, all above 5,000 m, and each offering a majestic view. Trekkers come across wide range of culture laced with wild adventure on their way. The magnificent sight of the mountain vistas along with the patches of birch and rhododendron forest is simply astonishing. Khumbu High Pass Trekking offers amazing view points for breath-taking views of splendid Himalayan range of Everest region. Any trekker looking for a challenging trek in the Everest Region, Khumbu High Pass Trekking sure gives trekkers the ultimate antidote to their adrenaline rush.

The route to Khumbu High Pass gets tougher as we embark further towards Kalapather and Everest Base Camp, both of which is above 5,000 m. However, the highlight of this trek is the panoramic view from Gokyo Ri, breathtaking Gokyo lake, stunning passes and hike to Kalapather with a pleasant climb to Mt. Everest base camp. The trail will take you on an unforgettable journey through some stunning views of the three amazing passes Renjo La (5338m), Chola-La (5368m), and Kangma-la. The trek demands good physical health since the trek is the most challenging and strenuous trek in the Khumbu Region, but worth every sweat that drips along the way. You make peace with every hardship faced along the way when you come across the splendid views of the stunning Himalayan giants along with your achievement.

Khumbu High Pass Trekking begins from Kathmandu with a scenic flight to a small mountain airport at Lukla. Lukla is the gateway to Everest Region from where we head towards the famous Namche Bazaar via Phakding and Monjo. On our way to Namche Bazaar, we come across dense pine forest and small scattered villages that make the climb more pleasant and blissful. We stay at Namche for two days for proper acclimatization before heading to the less trodden trail towards the Thame and Lungden which is close to the Tibet border. Namche Bazaar is one of the most popular sites for every tourist that wish to experience the Buddhist culture and tradition. It is a trade hub for every local Sherpa people, a few people also come from Tibet to sell their home-made goods. The place is almost always crowded as it is a junction for the tourists moving towards the Everest Region and also for the Yak herders returning back.

We move further up to the Renjo La pass which is comparatively tough but we are highly rewarded with stunning views of charismatic view of the mighty mountains including Mt. Everest (8848 m) with pristine Gokyo lakes in one single frame. Furthermore, we hike to Gokyo Ri for more panoramic views of the mountain vistas. Before crossing the Chola la pass, we descend towards the largest glacier, Ngonumpa glacier. To get a close-up view of the Himalaya, we move further up to the popular Khumbu Valley followed by the famous Kalapather peak. The trail continues up to the Everest Base Camp which offers us a mesmerizing view of the tallest Mt Everest. After Everest Base Camp, we explore the Chukung valley from Lobuche crossing the amazing Kongma – la pass, which is the last pass in our adventurous journey. From Chukung, we trek down to Tengboche, the world famous place for its legendary monastery. We visit the famous Tengboche monastery and trek down to Lukla via Namche Bazaar.

Day 02: Sightseeing of Kathmandu Valley and Trek Preparation Day.
Upon your request, we can organize a half day sightseeing around the Kathmandu Valley. The capital city of Nepal contains a perfect blend of ancient history and modern day shopping areas. Visiting the historical places with a tour guide will be worthwhile. The major visiting places in Kathmandu are Kathmandu Durbar square, Monkey temple, Pashupatinath Temple, Buddhanath Stupa and Bhaktapur Durbar Square.

Day 03: Flight to Lukla (2860 m) | Trek to Phakding (2640 m) | 35 min flight | 4 hrs trek.
We have an early morning breakfast at the hotel and immediately transfer to the airport for an early morning flight to Lukla (2860 m), which is a gateway destination from where our trek begins. After a thrilling and adventurous half an hour flight above the breathtaking White Mountains and lush green landscapes, we reach the Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla. This air route is one of the most famous and thrilling flights in the world as the dramatic landing on the hillside surrounded by high mountains peaks takes our breath away. Upon arrival at Lukla, we are greeted by our crew members who will be guiding us through our way up the mountains. After a few arrangements, we start our trek through the prosperous village of Lukla until we reach Phakding. In order to adapt to the surrounding, we only hike up to a short distance today. However, additional activities such as hiking up to a nearby monastery can also be added to the itinerary according to your wish. Overnight at guest house in Phakding.

Day 04: Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3445 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
Our day begins with an early morning breakfast at the hotel. Today’s walk is relatively pleasant and gentle which includes a few uphill and downhill with multiple crossings over Dudh Koshi River and a magnificent view of Mt. Thamserku (6,608 m) from the Benkar village. We walk up through a few bridges and finally reach the entrance of the world famous Sagarmatha National Park at Monjo, which is a home to a variety of flora and fauna. Here we get our trekking permits checked in order to keep a record of trekkers and local trekking staffs as well. After a few hours of the walk as we descend up the mountain, we come to Jorsale, the last village until Namche Bazaar. The walk is blissful and pleasant alongside the riverbeds as we reach the Hillary Suspension Bridge. We climb up towards Namche Bazaar passing through the Himalayan giants, getting a closer and clearer view of the Kwangde Peak, its sister peaks, KusumKangaru, Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Tawache, and many other fabulous mountains. We stop over at Chautara to rest and admire the splendid view of the mountains. At last, we reach the happening and colorful village of Namche Bazzar, the main gateway and a trade hub of Khumbu region. Overnight at hotel in Namche bazaar.

Day 05: Acclimatization Day at Namche Bazaar.
We have altogether two rest days in the itinerary in which today is the first of the scheduled acclimatization day. However, we highly recommend you to stay active and moving during the rest days instead of being lazy and idle. A short hike to Everest View Hotel will be a good idea to keep ourselves moving along with a little exploring of the lofty Himalayas including Mt. Everest. On the way back from this hike, we can stop at the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National park, where we can observe an assortment of things related to the first Everest ascenders, Sherpa culture and learn about the various plant and animal life of the Everest region. Namche Bazaar is the main trading center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and it consists of banks, ATMs, government offices, internet cafes, shops, restaurants, bakery and a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturdays. You will get a chance to collect souvenirs for your loved ones here as you get varieties of handmade goods and homemade Yak cheese and butter. Overnight at hotel in Namche bazaar. 

Day 06: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Thame (3850 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
Starting our day with a heavy breakfast, we move out from Namche Bazaar and climb a short uphill passing a monastery at the east. On the left, we have the KongdeRi (6187 m) and a river that flows down into a ravine. On the right, is the rocky KhumbiYul La (5765 m) and behind us is clearly visible Mt. KusumKanguru at an altitude of 6,373 m. We pass through an abundant dense forest, magnificent waterfalls and rivers as we walk downhill for about an hour. A steep rise up takes us to a ridge and river beds become closer and wider with every step we take. We climb up to a village of Phorte and then a small town of Samde along the stretch halfway up a slight slope leading to the bridge over the Bhote Koshi (3650 m) subsequently climbing towards Thame after a half an hour climb. Overnight at guest house in Thame.

Day 07: Trek from Thame to Marulung (4210 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
If we are fortunate enough and the sky is clear, we will witness the mesmerizing view of the beautiful mountain peaks that guard the village to the west. After our early morning breakfast, we head up towards our next stop, Marlung. The terrain from Thame to Marlung is alpine zone and there has very less vegetation. We enjoy the peace and relative solitude of this little valley. The trail bends to the village of Tangmote and in about an hour from here, we walk parallel to the village of Yellajung on the other side of the Bhote Koshi. We pass by the Tragnang village enjoying the superb views of KongdeRi as we look down the trail. A further 45 minutes or so on a gradually rising trail brings us to Marlung. Overnight at guest house in Marlung.

Day 08: Trek from Marlung to Lungden (4380 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
Today is a short hike day from Marlung to Lungden with gentle walking passing across beautiful sceneries on our way. Upon arrival at Marlung, we walk for about an hour and then climb a small raising hill passing through water streams. After trekking from about 2 to 3 hours we reach our destination for today that is Lungdeng. Overnight at guest house in Lungden.

Day 09: Trek from Lungden to Renjo La pass (5360 m) to Gokyo (4800 m) | 5 to 6 hours trek.
As we hike further to the top of Renjo La, we get an outstanding view of the surrounding. The Everest itself, Lhotse, Cho-latse and Taboche can be seen shimmering beautifully in the sun. The view from Renjo La is very much like that from Gokyo Ri with third Gokyo Lake and Gokyo Village beneath the gray smear of Ngozumpa Glacier. We pass across the glacier and an easy walk down brings us to Gokyo. Overnight at guest house in Gokyo.

Day 10: Rest day at Gokyo | Hike to Gokyo Ri (5357 m) | 4 hrs trip.
Today we rest and acclimatize at Gokyo. At this juncture, we enjoy the great views of Mt. Everest and Cho-Oyu. If the weather is good, we grasp the opportunity to climb Gokyo Ri today instead of next day to enjoy the scene from the best viewpoint of Everest Region. Moreover, Gokyo is not only popular for its grand view from Gokyo Peak but also for the six lakes which it hosts. We would definitely not miss the chance to observe the fourth lake (ThonakTsho) and fifth lake (NgozumaTsho). If requested, we climb on a hill at the edge of the Lakes to get astounding view of Mt. Cho-Oyu, Mt. Gyachung Kang, Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse and Mt. Makalu. A short climb up to Gokyo Ri, offers a breathtaking view of sunrise over the Himalayas. Upon exploring the Gokyo Ri area, we get back to the camp to relax. We let the feeling of being surrounded by splendid mountain vistas soak in. The panoramic view of the mountains like KusumKanguru, Thamserku, K43, Kangtega, Taboche, Cholatse, Makalu, Lhotse, Nuptse, Everest, Changtse, and Pumori is simply outstanding. Overnight at guest house in Gokyo.

Day 11: Trek from Gokyo to Thaknak (4750 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek. 
We walk through the trail towards Thaknak today. Thaknak is also sometimes pronounced as Dragnag. We climb out of Gokyo village to a ridge and slowly climb up to the route through the Ngozumpa Glacier to the mountain on the other side. Continuing the trail and traversing along the edge of that mountain, we descend down to Thaknak. We come across magnificent views of Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Gokyo Ri, and other high Himalayas on this trek. Overnight at guest house in Thaknak.

Day 12: Trek from Thaknak to Cho La to Dzongla (4830 m) | 7 to 8 hrs trek.
Today, we trek to the Cho La Pass. Cho La pass is another main highlights of this trip. The trek up to Dzongla is a tough one, not because the pass itself is difficult, but the trail is steep and involves a glacier traverse on the eastern side which takes a lot of energy. We need to be very careful as the trail is vertical and the rocks glazed by ice add trouble to the trekkers, making the trail slippery. Our trail climbs up through a ravine and a rocky trail. So, we climb up continuously up from Phedi. We trek through alongside the frozen lake while we come to the top of the pass decorated with floating prayer flags. We need to pass through some crevasses before we reach Dzongla, another beautiful place with a complete view of Mt. Cholatse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Mt. Lobuche peak and the Pheriche village far below. Overnight at guest house in Dzongla.

Day 13: Trek from Dzongla to Lobuche (4900 m) | 4 to 5 hrs trek.
We descend from Dzongla and head for Lobuche from here. Upon crossing a bridge, we transverse through grassy trail, enjoying the view of Lobuche Peak we stretch up eventually through a ridge. The mountains of Ama Dablam, Kangtega, Thamserku and Taboche are seen looming prominently. Climbing up through the curving round up the wide gravelly river bed, we reach our destination Lobuche. Overnight at guest house in Lobuche.

Day 14: Trek Lobuche to Gorak Shep (5170 m) to EBC (5364 m) and back to Gorak Shep | 9 hrs trek.
The trail to Gorak Shep goes ahead through the lateral moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. We pass through the pyramid signpost on the trail and as we climb further we see the peak of the north ridge of Everest along with Mt. Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Lingtern, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Nuptse, etc. The view is magical. A small ascent would take us to ThangmaRiju from where we perceive a 360-degree view of snowy mountain vistas. Climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of Changri Glacier, we catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green knoll beneath the Mt. Pumori. Furthermore, we reach Gorak Shep, where we are offered with a beautiful scene of snow-capped mountains looming all around us including Mt. Everest. After a brief lunch and rest, we take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. Only upon reaching the Everest Base Camp, we appreciate the Everest climbers who bravely climb the hazardous route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Khumbuste and Mt. Pumori is the mountains we can view from the base camp. Mt. Everest is not quite visible from this point. We then move back to Gorak Shep for an overnight stay.

Day 15: Hike to Kala Patthar (5545 m) then to Lobuche (4900m) | 6 to 8 hrs trek.
We start early in the morning to catch the dramatic views from Kala Patthar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature (-10 to -14 C) departure beforehand. Further, there is always the potential of chilly winds which are quite common in the mountains. We come across familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east, as Everest begins to reveal itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kala Patthar, we pause to catch our breath at several outstanding viewpoints and snap a few pictures to collect the memories from an unforgettable experience. After several hours of climbing, we reach Kala Patthar. From this juncture, we scramble to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by cairns and colorful prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kala Patthar where our eyes widen taking in the unbelievable Himalayan Panorama, wandering from one mighty massif to another. We take as many pictures as we can and take them in view to our memory that will last for a lifetime. We trek back to Gorak Shep, have our breakfast and trek down to Lobuche. Overnight at Guesthouse in Lobuche.

Day 16: Trek from Lobuche to Kongma La (5,535 m) to Chhukung (4,730 m) | 6 to 7 hrs trek.
From Lobuche, we pass through Khumbu Glacier. After a few hours climb we reach at Kongma La. There is a Pyramid shaped Italian Research Centre at just over 5,000 m. We enjoy the views of the wide basin dotted with frozen lakes. The splendid views of the marvelous Mt. Cholatse, Mt. Pokalde, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Lhotse, Mt. Makalu and Mt. Ama Dablam takes our breath away. We then turn and walk through the stony trail while descending down the Niyang Khola valley. We enjoy the great views of AmphuLapcha Pass and Island Peak as we climb towards Chukkung. Overnight at guest house in Chukkung.

Day 17: Trek from Chhukung to Tengboche (3860 m) | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
Chhukung is also the starting point for the Island Peak Climbing. We are now getting closer to the Himalyan civilization of the Khumbu Region with every step. The Imja Khola joins the Dudh Koshi River a little above the Pangboche Village. There is a famous monastery at Pangboche which is believed to have been the oldest in the Khumbu region. From Pangboche, we descend down the alpine desert and back into the greenery of pine forests leading us to a steep uphill climb into Tengboche. We pay our visit to the famous Tengboche Monastery. Overnight at guest house in Tengboche.

Day 18: Trek from Tengboche to Namche Bazzar | 5 to 6 hrs trek.
From Tengboche, we make a steep descent and the trail leads us back to Namche as we walk along the Dudh Koshi River. We keep a lookout for wildlife such as mountain goats also known as Himalayan Thar, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc. while passing through the forest by the trail. This gives you a thrilling experience inside the so called “jungle”. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at Namche Bazaar where we take a long last look back to Lhotse and bid our goodbyes to the peak of Everest and Tengboche. The final steep climb traverses the hillside taking us to Namche Bazaar. We take a nice hot shower and have a very relaxed sleep in our cozy room in Namche Bazaar.

Day 19: Trek from Namche Bazaar to Lukla | 6 to 7 hrs trek.
The trail descends steeply downward so we walk carefully, under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the splashing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries, the trail becomes more smooth and natural. From this point onwards, we start to get warmed up by the low elevation light breeze. Any remaining sore throats and colds will be gone by today as we pass through this charming, fairly warm mountain air. Although we are traveling the same route down, we feel completely different views from a different angle. We discover a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests and on a distance, snow covered peaks. As we walk through the Sherpa villages' noticing impressive Buddhist tradition and culture, prayer stones and colorful prayers. Upon the arrival in Lukla, we check into a comfortable hotel for a cozy stay. Overnight at hotel or guest house.

Day 20: Flight from Lukla to Kathmandu | 35 minutes.
After breakfast, we head back to the same airport we started our trip from. We take the scenic flight to Kathmandu enjoying the last minute views of the high Himalayan ranges including the Everest. You will then be transferred to the hotel and rest of the time will be rest and relax. In the evening, you will be joining a farewell dinner to celebrate your accomplishment with the team leaders and your trekking crew. Overnight at hotel.

Day 21: Final departure.
We normally drop our guests to the airport for them to catch their flight back home in the morning but if by chance your flight happens to be in the afternoon or evening, we will take you for a sightseeing or for a last minute shopping. You will then be escorted to the airport even if your flight is at midnight. We hope to see you again.

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure. It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
