Khumbu Trek

The trek of the high passes of Khumbu trek offers the  Renjo Pass, the  Chola Pass and then we will go to Kala Patthar La. A trip to the heart of the Everest massif by the high passes. In Khumbu, we are still above 3500 m with many villages over 4000 m.

Sunrise and sunset on Everest as you ascend to Kala Patthar are unforgettable moments like visiting Everest Base Camp.

3 trekkings in Khumbu, transport us to the heart of the Everest massif in Sherpas country. Khumbu is the most beautiful mountains in the world, Ama Dablam, Everest, Nuptse, Pumori, etc.

CNN ranks the Khumbu Everest Base Camp Kala Patthar trek as the most beautiful adventure trek.

The Khumbu region is home to Sagarmatha Park which is a 1,200-square kilometer protected area bordering the Tibet Nature Reserve.

Fir trees, rhododendron forests, suspension bridges, yak caravans, Sherpa villages, you are in Khumbu. From Namche Bazar, you are at high altitude with the view of the prestigious peaks of Nepal.

It is also many Buddhist monasteries like the oldest Pangboche of Khumbu and Tengboche which forms Lamas.

Sagarmatha is also a World Heritage listed park in 1979, home to a diverse flora and fauna.

The High Route from Everest to Nangpa The 5700 m is poorly done. It is a difficult trek which is done partly under the tent. It is the historic road between Tibet and Khumbu frequented by Tibetans who trade between Nepal and Tibet via the Nangpa La Glacier.

Finally, if you can do this trek in spring you will find rhododendrons and orchids in bloom in May. In addition, contrary to an idea often conveyed it is very clean there are even many bins on the course.
