Tour Details

Kongma La Pass (5535m), Chola Pass (5368m), Renjo La Pass (5360m)

The High Pass Trek is one of the most exhilarating treks in Nepal. It is both adventurous and risky as well.  The trek starts with 35 minutes flight to Lukla from TIA airport Kathmandu. Lukla airport is also known as one of the dangerous airports in the world with narrow runway but they do 20-30 flights regularly. Luka is also known as the Gate Way to Everest. The Namche Bazar is the of the beautiful district headquarter on the height of 3,440M. Namche Bazar is popularly known as the capital city for the Sherpa Community.  Namche bazar is very rich in Natural and cultural heritage you can view the wonderful view of mountains and also a lot of Buddhist monasteries.

 The major route that we complete in this trek is Tengboche, Dingboche (4,358m/14,295ft), Chukung (4730m/1553ft), Kongma La Pass (5535m), Chola Pass (5368m), Renjo La Pass (5360m) and the Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,598 ft).  Chukhung Valley is one of the most attractive places surrounded by Mt.Lhotse and Mt.Nuptse Glacier you can see the view of island peak and also the Imja Glacier the northern part of Chukung is covered with the  Mt amadablam and Chukung Glacier Itself. Many people can face the acute mountain sickness (AMS) in this treks if they are not properly acclimatized. The other risk might be an avalanche. During the climbing time, you need trekking equipment like ropes, Boots, warm down jackets, trekking sticks, etc.  The crossing of the passes requires the use of technical climbing equipment and trekkers must have known about the Trekking gears like crampon, ice ax.

Himalayan snow treks cater high-quality service package to all trekkers that trek with us. We are very responsible to provide hygienic and delicious food during the trek. More importantly, we always provide our special trekking license holder guide and porter on these treks.

 

 

(Sherpas )

Above site, the trail enters the homeland of the Sherpas, a Buddhist tribe who migrated to solukhumbu from the Tibetan plateau around the 15th century. sherpas still follow similar customs to the Buddhist of Tibet and they speak a language derived from Tibetan that has no written script. The sherpas call themselves ‘share-was’ meaning ‘people from the east.’ The tribe can be divided into eighteen ancient clans, but most sherpa men take their names from the day of the week on which they were born -Lhakpa (Wednesday), phurba (Thursday) etc.

The term ‘sherpa’ is applied to porters throughout Nepal, but only the people of solukhumbu and Helambu can properly be called Sherpas. Ever since the climbing expeditions of the 1950s, the Sherpa has been famous for their skills as mountaineers and high -altitude porters. In fact, they have unique advantages in this regard – thanks to hundreds of years of living at high altitude the blood of sherpa is chemically more efficient at carrying oxygen than the blood of people from the lowlands. )
