Everest Two Passes Trek
1550

Overview

Pristine beauty of tallest mountain of the world Mt. Everest and challenge for adventure lovers designate this two pass trekking. Everest base camp is normally dream of many people all around the world but in this elongated Everest Base camp with two passes trekking you will not miss other major view points of the Everest region. Three high pass trekking is assumed as hard trekking but comparing with other trek of Everest region. So we are making bit easy excluding KongmaLa pass, which doesn’t mean KongmaLa pass worth nothing but skipping one pass makes your adventure less stressful. As you accomplish the goal of Everest base camp way earlier than you face passes challenge which add moral strength for the trekker, we believe. Moreover entering to the Sagarmatha National park established in late 70s’ will give us chance to see conserved flora, fauna and verities. If you are lucky with timing of animals to stroll around see Mountain Goat , Musk deer, Pheasants, Lophophorus, Snow duck, Mountain hawk, Snow leopard is normal during the trek.

Beyond the hard and easy thing two passes trek will take you to the beautiful landscape making summit of height above 5400m with ChoLa Pass and 5360m with Renjo La pass. Once you trek towards Chola pass after accomplishing Everest Base camp goal, you will feel the difference of the two pass trek and Base Camp trekking. As the crowd of the trekkers will be very less than before you will enjoy the trekking more than before. Destination like Gokyo, Dzongla, Thame and few monasteries you see on the trail are unbelievably beautiful. Perfect landscape of the passes, view from the top of both the passes, grand view of the mountain range from the top of Gokyo Ri are not less than admiring beauty of Gokyo lake. One of the night during this trekking you will be staying at Gokyo which is exactly on the side of one of the lake among six lakes in this Gokyo valley. These 6 different lakes in cascade pattern is inexpressibly beautiful in words. During the trekking you will have view of lots of mountains like; Mt Everest (8848m), fourth highest Lhotse (8516m), fifth highest Makalu (8485m), sixth highest Cho-Oyu (8210m) and other just as bewitching mounts to feast your eyes. You cannot imagine uncountable number of mountains in between the wide range of these towering mountains.

Apart from the mountains you will have chance to visit different monasteries in different places like, Khumjung, Khunde, Tengboche, Deboche, Thame. This will fulfil your thirst of knowing life of people in mountains, their culture, tradition they follow and many more.
