Trekking to Mt. Everest base camp via three great Himalayan high passes over 5000 meter is Nepal’s one of the most challenging treks that will remain forever in the brain and soul of trekkers who dare to undertake it and accomplishes it. Trekking adventure designed only for experienced trekkers who can endure extreme alpine conditions and digest altitude, Everest High Passes Trek crosses over three passes Kongma La (5,535/18,159 ft), Cho La (5420m/17,782ft) and Renjo La (5,340m/17,520ft).

Everest High Passes Trek treads along the classic route to the Sagarmatha National Park that stretches on the bank of raging Dudh Koshi River. The trek caters views of colorful landscapes; encounters ancient highland Monasteries nestled ringed by lofty peaks and provides an opportunity to look into typical Sherpa culture. As the trek reaches the summit of Kongma La Pass, the dramatic view of Khumbu Icefall cascading down from Western Cmw releases all the exhaustions trekkers might have got trekking all these days. Now we make our way towards famous Everest Base Camp and the Everest View Vantage Point Kalapattar 5545m.

Crossing over Cho La the challenging trekking adventure in Everest arrive to the land of Glacial Lakes, Gokyo. Savor 360 degree Himalayan panorama from the top of Gokyo Ri, hike to the fifth lake in Gokyo for the incredible view of Ngozumpa Glacier and savor the magnificence of turquoise highland lakes. The final part of the trek goes over famous Renjo La Pass to get into culturally rich and least frequented villages of Khumbu like Marlung and then via Nangpa get into Thame and drop down to Lukla and end the trek.

I did the ABC trek with Bashu and it was just fantastic! Bashu is fluent in English and German and had in depth knowledge on all related questions that our group had on our trek. I will certainly come back to Nepal again and would book another trip with him in a heartbeat!

Last December 2015/January 2016 we made the 18 days EBC trek, together with guide Kumar of Nepal Footprint Holidays and our porter Sudeep. Both great guys!! We had a marvellous time and food and lodges were a perfect arrangement! Chitwan was a hell of a ride, but worth it. Parkland Hotel in Chitwan was 100 % the right choise!

Nepal Footprint might be a small company but nevertheless excellent! 10/10 we would contact them again for the ABC trek Annapurna in the future!!

I went several time in Nepal and I always take Nepal Footprint Holidaz Trek. Everything was amazing every time and I can not advise some one to go with an other agency.

Je me suis rendue au Nepal a maintes reprise, et je suis toujours partie en trek avec Nepal Footlprint Holiday. Thapalyia est super et tres professionel. Je ne peux que conseiller de choisir son agence afin de passer d excellentes vacances.

We selected Nepal Footprint holidays for our Annapurna Base camp Trek during Oct 2016. We had a great time with the very knowledgeable guide there. They really took care of us.
