The trek covers highly renowned destination- Everest base camp and Gokyo valley on its trekking route.
The foothill journey begins from the airstrip of Lukla, meeting the trip crew. Passing some of the relatively lower altitude Sherpa valleys and picturesque landscape, it ascends to the alpine region via Namche Bazaar. The cultural exploration around the nearby monasteries and experiencing the Sherpa hospitality is awe-inspiring. The real trip on the three pass route begins after splitting from the main trail from Dingbuche. But, you have also option to begin this trekking via Thame and cross the Renjo La at first. Based on this itinerary, you begin with crossing the Khongma La Pass, which is the highest among three passes. Crossing it, you trek to the Everest base camp and Kalapatthar. Sunrise view over the towering pyramid shaped peaks is just incredible. Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Ama Dablam and the surrounding peaks are the attractions during this trekking. The Cho La Pass is regarded to be most technical part of this trek that may require using the peak climbing equipments. Hiking to Gokyo Ri is another wonderful thing to do and explore the Lakes of Khumbu. Still, the Renjo La pass stay with steep and technical cross that entice you stunningly.
