TRIP INTRODUCTION

Rapid Everest 3 High Passes Trek is one the most popular and classic trek filled with adventurous challenges. In this trek to Everest Base Camp the adventure is doubled with another adventure of three high passes - Kongma La, Cho La, and Renjo La are inspiring. The experience you will have in this trek will not be like other available in Khumbu region.

At that point conquer the Kongma La (5535m), on the way to Lobuche and Everest Base Camp. Come back to Duglha and take the long course up the Cho La (5368m) and the downhill path to Thaknak. Cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and set out toward Gokyo: and a rest day to climb Gokyo Ri for a great scene of Nepal's longest glacier of Cho Oyo and the Everest range.

The western area incorporates the lofty rising to the Renjo La, somewhere in the range of four hours over the lake for spectacular views of the valley and glacier underneath and various high edges delegated by the Everest Group including the northwest face of Everest. The plunge to Marulung confronts new emotional scenes. Underneath this town, the trail joins an old Tibetan salt exchange course and proceeds to Thame and after that back to Namche Bazaar; and on to Lukla for your flight back to Kathmandu.

In the event the flight is cancelled we will attempt to get you on a chartered helicopter but you are responsible for the extra costs in this event which can range from $200 to $600 or more depending on the number of people on the flight.

We in some itinerary schedule one extra day into the trek already as a buffer day in case of delays and in some Itineraries do not have extra day after trek but as flights can at times be delayed for several days we suggest you add a couple of extra days at the end of your trip in case of any delays. Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip and not the start.

Important Notes and Safety Concerns

Trekking is simply not just walking. Some of our trips are extremely adventurous and needs serious efforts to complete them successfully. We kindly request all our valuable guests to come well prepared before doing any of these extreme treks. Buying proper and reliable insurance coverage with Helicopter Evacuation on emergency is the most important thing before starting the adventures. Sometimes, our treks are done in extremely remote places where you will have no access to outer world. On serious injuries or sickness Helicopter can be the only mean to evacuate you. In other hand bad weather conditions can also ruin the whole adventures. So, we say

"Get prepared first and enjoy the adventure without worrying"
