    Everest Challenging Trek is also known as Everest Transverse Trek, a magnificent trekking trail that takes you through to the three of the world’s most demanding passes Kongma La (5,535mCho La (5420m) and Renjo La (5,340m) along with classical route to make complete high-level circuit. Thus, Everest challenging trek is an ultimate trekking in Everest region for true adventurers. The Everest High Passes Trek program obviously provides the opportunity to visit the Everest base camp, Kalapattar, Gokyo Valley and its serene Lakes, the best view point of Gokyo Ri and more especially introduces a route to the remote and untouched Nangpa La Valley, the Sherpa village of Marlung, the monastery village of Thame as well through other major remote Sherpa villages and valleys. Cho La Pass has become a commonly used pass, but Kongma La and Renjo La are less visited passes. Renjo La pass is much majestic than other passes as you can shoot pictures of north and south ridge of Mt. Everest from the top of Renjo La! Excite your wild imagination and give wings to your thoughts and feel this Gokyo village with a charming blue lakes, a huge glacier nearby, Chola Pass in the Lap of Everest and Mt Makalu including numerous other mountains at one go

    The Everest Challenging Trek begins with a brief exploration of the temples, shrines, bazaars and restaurants of Kathmandu. Landing at Tenzing-Hillary Airport at Lukla on the following day the trek is started along the classical route through Sagarmatha National Park playing with potent Dudh Koshi River, colorful landscapes, forests, villages, Gompas and monasteries in the land enclosed by the soaring peaks. We leave the classical trail at Dingboche and proceed northwards to Chhukung. A day’s rest at Chhukung is used to visit Chukkhung RI to help acclimatize before attempting Kongma La Pass. Our trek to the view point of Kalapather is followed by the tough Climb through Cho La that finally takes us to the tranquil lakes at Gokyo valley. Here we explore the valley and climb Gokyo Ri to enjoy more excellent mountain views including another angle of Everest, and Cho Oyu on the Tibetan border to the north then bear west to scramble across the Renjo La, dramatically back-dropped by the Everest range, to enter the Bhote Kosi valley, where you walk along grazing pastures and a trading route used by yak trains from Tibet to Thame. Once we are here we follow the same route and drop down to Namche from there to as far as Lukla and then fly back to Kathmandu.

    Everest Challenging trek is an absolute reply to those who are on lookout for most adverse challenges and enjoy the most intrepid adventure. A difficult trekking destination yet can be achieved by physically fit individuals having previous trekking experience of scaling a towering altitude. Feel proud to be a part of this monumental trekking journey, one of its kind in the entire world and be thrilled forever.
