Everest base camp, kong mala, and Chola Pass 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.
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.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek as the bag pack for the hiking in Nepal and the gear play a vital role for the successful trip and we suggest you to have all the necessary gear for the trip and not to have unnecessary equipment/things that you will not be using for the trip and list of the gear you need for the trek are:
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend better to bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
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.
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.
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.
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.

Recently returned from one of the greatest adventures ever with the fantastic Ram Barakoti! Ram was an awesome guide, very attentive, funny and knowledgable. He enriched every step of the way. We did the Kongmala and Chola pass Trek. I cannot recommend this trek enough, it's something everyone should see! Definitely get Ram as your guide! He's such a great guy! Wonderful company to book through. Dhanyavaad! Namaste!!!!!
My Two-pass and trek was one of the best things I have ever done. Thanks to my guide Wangchu Sherpa, who always tried to do his best to make me feel comfortable. Respected my needs, my limits. Wangchu is more than a guide, he is now a very good friend. This company and Kiran, the owner, will try to help you whenever they can.
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.
