Total Khumbu in one big trek

This crossing of the 8 passes of Khumbu is magical. It is the longest and highest trek in the heart of Khumbu Everest Valley. 8 passes are to pass, Tesi Lapsa, Nangpa La, Renjo Paas, Chola Pass, Kongma La, AmphuLapsa, Mera La to end with Zatrav La.

This trek is difficult and requires a good knowledge of crampon, descent on fixed rope, etc.

In counter part, you will not be disappointed by this immersion in altitude close to the mythical summits of more than 8000 m.

Starting with the Tesi Lapsa allows both a good acclimatization to the altitude and on the other hand to avoid the crowd in Lukla and on the stretch Lukla – Namche Bazar.

But we can also start with Lukla and Zatraw La which facilitates the passage of the Amphulapsa Pass. We can do this crossing in both directions.

You will also go to Nangpa The pass Tibetans cross between Tibet and Nepal to get to the “Tibetan market” of Namche Bazar.
