Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass

This stage of our GHT trek begins on the spectacular trail to the Gokyo valley for views of Mt Everest (8848m) from Gokyo Ri and crossing the stunning Renjo La. The challenging approach to the glaciated Tashi Labsta Pass (5760m) from Thame is as magnificent as it is demanding but the effort is rewarded with fantastic mountain vistas. After crossing two immense glaciers the descent of the Rolwaling valley through picturesque Sherpa villages is a great introduction for the equally hospitable Gurung and Tamang villages. The final challenge is a section of wild ridge-top rhododendron forests before descending to the extensive nunnery at Bigu Gompa and transferring by road to Kathmandu.

Food for thought:
It's rare that trekking companies include meals on trek. But we include 3 hearty meals a day, beverages and water, all carefully prepared. We also cater to most dietary requirements. It's an essential part of our support. Buying food & plastic bottled water means taking unnecessary risk & creates an environmental hazard.
