From the kongma la pass , you will descend to the khumbu glacier and then ascend kala patar for breathtaking close-up views of mount everest and a sea of other Himalayan giants. You traverse the glaciated cho la pass to gokyo, where 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.
