KONGMA LA & CHO LA PASS TREK

Everest base camp, kongmala, and Cho La Pass  trek is one of the high pass treks so there are important things to know about the best season of high pass trekking of Nepal.

Kongma La and Cho La Pass trek is the less crowded and less visited trekking trail but offers the ultimate trekking experience in the Everest region. It lies above the Khumbu glacier opposite of Lobuche in the Everest trek region and one of several small summits, including Pokalde, that make up the long southwest ridge of Nuptse, between the Khumbu and Nuptse Glaciers. The view from Pokalde is stunning, especially the proximity of the huge south face of Nuptse.

Kongma La is one of the challenging trekking in Nepal. Trekkers need to cross two high passes located at the six distinct valleys of Bhotekoshi River, Namche Bazaar, Gokyo Lake, Ngozumba Glacier, Khumbu, and Imja Tse. Crossing the rugged high passes of Kongma La (5,545m), and Cho La (5,420m) with climbing of Chukung Ri (5,546m), Kalapathar (5,550m) and Gokyo Ri(5,357m) along with Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley makes this trek incomparable and unforgettable for trekkers.

Highlights of Kongma-La and Cho-La Pass Trek.

  • See the stunning Himalayas views of the Everest region from the world's highest passes.
  • Kongma-La and Cho-La Pass Trek are world-famous Himalayan high passes.
  • This trek is synonymous with a circuit trek connecting all the major trekking routes in Khumbu valley.
  • Three major valleys of Everest. Gokyo valley, Chhukung valley, and Everest Base Camp valley.
  • Communicate with typical people, their cultures and customs.

Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

In Kathmandu, you will be accommodated in a 3-star category hotel. During the trek, teahouses are readily available; most of the teahouses are fairly basic with twin beds and very little additional furniture. All accommodation is on a twin sharing basis. On request, private rooms can be provided, except in higher elevation where it will be just dormitories.

Meals and drinks during the trek

Breakfast will be served in Kathmandu and full board meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) are provided during the trek. Though the staple food of this region is potato, you will experience the vast array of Continental, Indians, local cuisines and authentic Nepalese food (rice and lentils). We highly recommend you to buy water purifying pills as you get to have stream water; however, you have the option of buying mineral water and boiled water at an additional cost. Note that, purchasing plastic bottled water is not eco-friendly.

Physical fitness

These two passes trek are the challenging off the beaten trekking trail in Everest Region so it is recommended for physically fit and experienced hikers only. This trek consists of high altitude passes above 5000m which is not going to be easy for trekkers with no past trekking experience. If you prepare properly and do regular exercises prior to your trekking then it will be a lot easier for beginners too.

Best time to travel

October – November, and March – April are considered a suitable time to visit high pass trek. The sky is clear, the temperature is moderate which offers extraordinary mountain views during your trip.

FAQS

The level is more difficult than other trekking programmers. However, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking tries its best to make the journey as easy, adventurous and joyful as possible.
Bottled water is easily available at a low cost. But you can not use plastic bottles in the Everest region. So, they do not sell plastic bottled mineral water. You need to drink mineral water or boiled filtered water in those areas. It is better to use water purification drops and tablets which you can either bring from your own country or buy in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Discovery World Trekking also provides water purifier pills.

The month of March to May in Spring and September to December in autumn seasons are considered the best for the Everest Base Camp Trek as the weather conditions become favorable during this time, providing you with good visibility and a suitable atmosphere for Kongma la and Chola Pass trekking.
No, there is no age limit for the trek to Kongma la and Chola Pass but, you need to be in good physical shape and have a positive attitude. We also suggest you to prior to the excursion though we suggest you to please see your doctor and obtain necessary permission and advice, as well as medications for traveling in extreme altitude prior to the excursion.
During trekking, you will be served meals in the teahouses. Typical meals are noodles, rice, pasta or potato dishes along with vegetables and egg/chicken/meat dishes. Other items mostly served as breakfasts include Tibetan, egg, pancake, bread, porridge, muesli, and toasts with peanut butter and honey.

It is also an eco-friendly way of trekking whereby trekkers can have more contact with the local's sherpa peoples.
Most of the teahouses on the Kongma La and Chola Pass trail have squat toilet facilities but recently built lodges have western-style toilets as well. Nowadays, flush toilets are also being introduced with number of increasing foreign mountaineers each year. It is highly recommended to carry your own toilet paper and other required toiletries. Hot shower facilities are available till Gorakshep. The most common type is a bucket shower, usual buckets with tap filled with hot water and placed in a shower room. Hot shower costs from US$ 4 to 15 per use and the price increases along with the elevation. Attached bathrooms and toilets are not available unless you book for a luxury lodge during the EBC trek.
What you want to wear depends on you but we suggest you wear warm clothes during the Ko'ngma and Chola Pass trekking. A down jacket, thermal longs and top, comfortable trekking trousers, t-shirts, fleece, windproof jacket, hat, scarf, and gloves might be useful. There are numerous trekking shops in the Thamel area of Kathmandu where you can get all of these items in both local and branded stores alike. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking may also accompany and assist you if required.

Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will provide you with a duffle bag (which is need to refund after the trek) that you can use throughout your entire journey and even afterward. These bags are durable and hence perfect for any kind of trekking journey. While the duffle bag will be carried by the potters, you will have to carry a day bag on your own. A day bag is a small backpack that has enough room for everything you will need on a day hike such as lunch, water, extra clothing and perhaps a few personnel items like camera, battery chargers, etc.
If possible, we suggest you bring your own equipment. However, sleeping bags and down jackets will be provided to you by Sherpa Expedition and Trekking. With regards to trekking poles, if you are used to walking with it then take them with you, as you will probably find them useful especially on the way down. They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is mostly a personal preference. If you prefer to take the trekking poles with you on the trekking then you can either bring your own pole or buy it from numerous options available in Kathmandu itself.
Yes, if you have a bag of extra clothing for when you return from the trekking, you will be able to store it safely in Kathmandu Sherpa Expedition and Trekking office. The storage facility is provided by most hotels and lodges in Kathmandu or you can also store it in our office for the duration of the trekking.
Our itinerary has been specially tailored to prevent any kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while moving up to higher altitudes. Normally, altitude sickness starts from 3,600 meters and above.

Don't skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.
Make sure to have both medical and evacuation insurance before coming to Nepal for Kongma La and Chola trekking.

However, the weight limit on flights to the Everest region, basically to Lukla is a total of 10 kgs and you need to pay an extra amount per kg for the excess baggage. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking pays up to 5 kgs of extra baggage making your total to 15 kgs with your hand bag.

I just finished this trek in late December. Mr. Ram barakoti was great at replying to emails and did airport pick up despite my flight being delayed to the next day. Fureng was a great guide with many years of experience and always made sure I was healthy and not sick. Dorje Sherpa was a great Porter also with some experience in being a guide.
