Everest High Pass Trekking

Everest High Pass Trekking

( 21 Nights / 22 Days )

overview

The Everest high pass has been the best trekking route in Nepal for decades. Tourists go for this trek throughout the year, and have built worn paths across forests and moors that are being well-developed for the Everest Base Camp trekking. While exploring the beauty of the Everest National Park and the Makalu-Barun National park, you might come across a number of endangered species of birds and animals in the parks. The Sherpa people have been protecting the ecology by caring for these species and the forests for centuries.

The Everest High Passes Trek begins and ends at Lukla. There are stops at teahouses, lodges and camps during the nights. As you go higher up the hills and reach a significant altitude of land, you will be acclimatizing to the environment and the views would keep getting more stunning. The spectacular views of the Mt. Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and of course the mighty Mt. Everest, are the main attractions of the Everest High Pass trekking. You will pass by several villages and markets as you trek and the visit to the Namche Bazaar is certainly an experience to remember.
