Kongma-la (5,535m), Cho-la (5,368m), Renjo-la (5,360m) are three legendary names that will stay with you forever. To these we must add the steps leading from Kongde to Chukung-Ri (5,550m), Kalapattar (5,545m), and Gokyo-Ri (5,357m) from where you have a panorama that can hardly be surpassed. The proposed circular route around the Sagarmatha National Park, mostly along routes much less frequented than the classic Everest Base Camp trail has the advantage of overnight accommodation in lodges all along the way. Despite having to cross three passes at altitudes of around 5,500m, the trek does not present any major difficulty and is achievable for most people who are in good physical condition and have some mountain skills. The only foreseeable threat being adverse weather conditions and / or heavy snowfall. It is necessary that we are properly acclimatized as we climb, which is why we choose to go east to west climbing gradually. The most serious problems in altitude sickness occur in groups where certain group members cannot keep pace with the others, but are hesitant to leave the group. We have therefore strategically worked out the route which will allow for members of the group with acclimatization problems to stay back (in Chukung), or avoid certain places altogether (avoid Kongma-la flipping by Dingboche instead), and catching up with the group later.
