It is one of the most authentic adventure trek in Everest facilitating the crossing of 3 different high passes which are not counted on the standard Everest trail, Renjo La (5,360m), Cho La (5,368m) and Kongma La (5,535m).
Everest Base Camp Trek via crossing three high passes is designed for adventurers. It is popular for its spectacular sceneries of surrounding mountains and the risk involved while crossing the glacieted crevasses. The continuous trekking/hiking on the mountains can be tiresome. After the long day of trek, the hospitality and service offered by the local inhabitants (Sherpa) can make your night pleasant.
