everest high passes trekEverest high passes trekking provides surprising views of the towering mountains like Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), Makalu (8,516m) and many other peaks. Crossing the craggy high passes of Renjo la (5388 m), Cho La (5380 m) and Kongma La (5535 m) with ascend of the three peaks of Gokyo Ri (5483 m), Kalapathar (5545m) and Chukung (5550 m) and the hike to Everest base camp makes this high pass trek the unparalleled and memorable trekking experience in Nepal. The cultural aspects of this trip are simply amazing as it gives you deep insights of mountain traditions and how mountain communities survive in these harsh zones, but yet reserve their warm smiles for visitors despite the biting cold. This westerly approach to Everest provides amazing vistas of the world’s highest mountain and should be considered in particular, by the keen photographer or by those who want a tougher trek.

The adventurous Everest High Passes trekking sets off from Lukla, gateway to the Everest Region. We take a 45 min scenic mountain flight to Lukla from Kathmandu after exploring the Kathmandu Valley further more. We then trek to Phakding passing many Tibetan Buddhist prayer walls, monasteries and monuments. We continue to Namchhe Bazaar by descending towards the Dudh Koshi River and join the main trail. From Namchhe Bazaar we walk on a peaceful trail with excellent views of the mountains as it winds in and out of the forest on the side of the canyon. The trail moves around the villages of Hungmo, Taramga, Marulung and reaches Lungden. Further ahead, we cross the Renjo La Pass (5,388m) to reach the pretty Gokyo Lake.

After observing the beauty of the Himalayas from Gokyo Ri we proceed towards the mighty Cho-La Pass via Lonpongo and Tagnag. The challenging ascent to Cho-La Pass rewards you with magnificent view from the top. We traverse high on the flanks of Awi Peak, above the village of Chola and continue past Cholatse Lake to reach Lobuche. The trail then follows the rough moraine of the Khumnbu Galcier in the direction of Gorak Shep. We then visit the Everest Base Camp and the famous Kala Pattar for some of the incredible mountain sceneries. We return back to Lobuche from where we turn left and head towards Chhukhung crossing the Khongma La pass on our way. We then descend to Tyangboche through Dingboche, Orsho, Shomare,Pangboche and Devoche on a smooth path. The trail ahead leads to the Namchhe Bazaar followed by the flight to Kathmandu from Lukla.

Weather information

We offer trekking in Nepal from mid-September to May. However within this period there are clear seasons in the weather. From early September the monsoon rains decrease. By mid-October through to December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights and clear views. Daytime temperatures can reach 25-30 deg C at low altitude in October and nights can drop to below 0 deg C at higher altitudes.

Winter trekking, from December to February, offers cool to mild and clear days with often very cold nights. Daytime temperatures at low altitudes will be mild, around 20 deg C and at night may drop to 0 or as low as -10 deg C at the higher points. Occasionally winter storms can bring snow as low as 2500m.

In March the cold, dry winter season begins to give way to warmer, wetter spring conditions. Mornings are usually clear with cloud build-up occasionally bringing afternoon rainstorms. Daytime temperatures increase quickly in March, with temperatures of up to 30 deg C and mild nights at low altitudes. The increase in rainfall in the hills is more than compensated for by the spectacular displays of rhododendrons and other wildflowers at this time of year. Late spring conditions, as in April and May, are generally hot at low elevations and as the clouds build up to the next monsoon, daily afternoon rainstorms are common. This is a period that generally has clear weather at the higher altitudes and is traditionally a time when mountaineering expeditions commence their ascents.

The monsoon creates a rainy season in Nepal, which lasts from mid-June to mid-September. During this time the Nepal Himalaya is unsuitable for trekking, with the exception of a few remote valleys. We offer treks during this period in Low altitude Treks in the Nepal Himalaya, Tibet & India (Kulu, Ladakh).

The post-monsoon period: From early September the monsoon rain starts to decrease. By mid-October through to mid-December the weather is usually stable with mild to warm days, cold nights and clear views. Daytime temperatures can reach 25-30 degrees Celsius at lower altitudes and decrease as you gain height. Over 3000 meters the daytime temperatures can vary as much as 10 to 20 degrees Celsius, and may be hotter or colder, depending on whether it is sunny or windy etc. At night at lower altitudes, temperatures do not normally drop much, although as you approach November it does get colder and the days shorter. Up high it can drop sharply at night, from 0 to minus 10 or 15 and more when camped on the ice or snow.

The pre-monsoon period:In March the cold, dry winter season begins to give way to warmer, wetter spring conditions. Mornings are usually clear with cloud build-up bringing occasional afternoon rainstorms. Views of the mountains in the middle of the day and afternoon may often be obscured. Daytime temperatures increase quickly in March with temperatures of up to 30 degrees Celsius and mild nights. At higher altitudes it is similar to the conditions of the post-monsoon period, however there is usually more snow, which has accumulated over the winter period. There are spectacular displays of rhododendrons and wildflowers at this time of year. Late spring conditions ie April and May, are generally hot at low elevations and as the clouds build up to the next monsoon, daily afternoon rainstorms are common.

Physically prepare yourself

It is important that your body is adequately prepared for the physical challenges of trekking. It is thus important that you assess your own condition and train accordingly. In general, the fitter you are, the easier it will be for you to handle the rigors of the trek. A well-rounded training program would include strength training, aerobic cross training, and hiking (ideally at high altitude but not necessary).

Mentally prepare yourself

Mental preparation is often overlooked. You should always keep a positive state of mind, but not ignore the signals your body sends you. Your mental stamina will, without a doubt, make the most difficult parts of the trekachievable.

We will keep the packing list update asnew equipment becomes available. If you have reviews or suggestions please send us an email.

Trekking in Nepal need not be considered risky affair as far as your health is concerned. Nevertheless, preventive measures such as a through medical checkup and inoculations before you start trekking can save you from unexpected hazards. Since the remote places of Nepal are not supplied with necessities that are essential for modern medical facilities and as the rescue and evacuation are measured in days, it is imperative to make a comprehensive first aid box consisting of basic drugs and accessories as part of the paraphernalia for trekking. Modern dentistry is unknown in the hill of Nepal so it is advised to have a checkup before departure from home. Tooth fillings; sometimes loosen in cold temperatures and high altitudes, so it is recommended to have them checked. Travelers are requested to bring medicine prescribed by their doctor at home. Common medicine for stomach problems, headache, and malaria is available in Kathmandu. Medicine is usually not available in remote areas. So necessary medicine is advisable to carry with you. Before going to Nepal, it is advised to get injections against typhoid, meningitis and hepatitis.
