Trip Highlights

  • After the successful ascent of Everest Base Camp, 5360m and Kalapathar, 5545m the trail now leads you to the different valley offering you with unique features in views and landscapes.
  • Being at Dzongla is utterly out of the world; it's more like being in a different planet with soaring peaks around and a small cozy town in the middle of nothing.
  • Going over the icy Chola Pass is distinct on its own.
  • Crossing the Gozumpa Glacier, largest glacier in the Himalayas has a novel magnificence which is always cherished by every single traveler who have dared to undertake it.
  • Gokyo with its turquoise blue lakes are exceptionally gorgeous that gives you an alternative to witness an entirely different face of Everest region which is beyond belief.
  • Going over the Renjo pass that has to offer one of the most spectacular view of the panoramic mountain range along with the series of lakes is indescribable. In one word, overall it's inconceivable.

Trip Overview

This 17 days expedition through Chola pass 5330m and Renjo Pass, 5360m is more of a secretive trek as it takes you off-the-beaten-track through the magnanimous lofty valleys which is very untouched away from the substantial flooding of tourism like in the major trails of Everest. Going over these high altitude passes is undeniably very challenging but very worthwhile with its exceptional view and the conquest of being at the top of them is very appealing giving you more of a chance to know, understand, believe and trust yourself.
