There are major three high passes Kongma La Pass 5540 M, Chola Pass 5335 M, Newly explored Pass Renjo La Pass 5400 M, that are located southern west of Everest Kongma La straight above the Dingboce, Chola Pass situated west of Everest Base Camp, Lobuche and eastern north of Gokyo and Renjo Pass South of Gokyo and straight west-north of Namche/ Thame. From Lukla to Dinbgboche, we walk along the normal Trekking rout of Everest Base Camp. For Kongma La Pass, trail divides from Dingboche / Chukkung. We will take over Kongma La pass to Lobuche and others who are unable or unwilling we take them along the normal route to Lobuche. Kongma La is beautiful pass, views from pass is dramatic Mt.Thamserku, Mt Amadablam, Mt. Kongtega numerous mountains and glacial Lakes in front of yours eye with in few kilometers distance.

There are several lakes just below the pass with surrounding meadow. Camping groups Camps beside lakes but for Tea House group must be cross in same day. It will take 8-10 hrs from chukkung to Lobuche. Southern part (Dingboche side) of pass trail is easy ascending but after crossing the pass is hard descending along the moraine for Aprox 100mtrs.If you are trekking in mid winter from November to end of February require couple of hundred meters rope. Other time of the year, no need to put any rope while descending or ascending. Only few peoples heard about this pass, and few trekkers have crossed.Cho La Pass, has become common pass, because during peak season 40 to 50 peoples cross from Gokyo to Everest Base Camp and from base camp to Gokyo. Difficulty is similar as Kongma La Pass and Cho La Pass Trekking, on to the western side of pass, from top (Gokyo Side) is hard ascending for Aprox 100 M. During mid winter hundred to hundred fifty Meter rope is necessary as well as ice-axe and crampon too.Renjo La Pass, from Gokyo to top is easy ascending, it is much easier than the pass of Cho La and Kongma La but descending from pass to about 100M is challenging if snow covering on trail.
