This is one of Nepal most famous trek, set amongst breath-taking high mountain scenery, through the Khumbu - Sherpa country. The new itinerary through the Renjo (5345m), Cho La (5420m) and Kongma La (5535m) Passes accentuates the alpine aspect of the trek. It provides the opportunity to trek less frequented routes. After a magnificent mountain flight to Lukla we follow the Dudh Kosi valley to Namche Bazaar. The Renjo Pass (5345 m) route is off the usual beaten track. At the pass, a great view of the Gokyo lakes on one side, the Rermo Pokhari lakes on the other side, and a myriad of snowy peaks in the background provides this incredible atmosphere. From Gokyo village we climb Gokyo Peak (5480m) and enjoy stunning summit mountain scenery including Everest, Makalu and Cho Oyo. From Gokyo we follow a trail over Cho la pass and reach Lobuche . After the ascent of Kala Pattar (5545m) and the impressive up-close view of Everest, our return route passes through Tengboche, a magnificent location with a fascinating monastery.
