Everest region has become a popular destination for short trekking trips, longer treks, high passes, adventure peaks, challenging expeditions of mountains above 8,000 meters including the highest Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,028ft), the story of Yeti and the Sherpa culture. If you want to achieve a summit on a trekking peak and spend as much time as possible in the Everest region including trekking over high passes, here we have designed a trek combined with a peak to fulfill your expectations. The trip includes Renjola and Chola pass, Everest Base Camp, Kalapatthar, Kongma la pass and then climbing of Island Peak. Therefore, we have named this trip as Three Passes with Island Peak Climb.
Our Everest high passes trek provides an all-round experience of the famous Khumbu Valley. This is regarded as a hard trek advancing to the Renjo la Pass (5,340m/17,520ft), Gokyo Ri (5,360m/17,586ft) and the tough Chola Pass (5,330m/17,487ft) making a circuit of Tawache (6,367m/20,890ft) and Cholatse (6,440m/21,129ft), Everest Base Camp (5,364m/17,598ft), Kalapatthar (5,545m/18,192ft) and finally Kongma la Pass (5,535m/18,160ft). The trip is also focused on adventure, Sherpa culture and their social life. The summit of Gokyo Ri (5,360m/17,586ft) provides a lifetime memory from where a 360 degree view of Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Everest and Mt. Makalu is truly panoramic.
