Kongma La Pass Trek Review

Kongma La Pass - Just Amazing

November 20, 2023

On the 18th of November 2023, we successfully completed our memorable journey through the three passes in a counterclockwise direction, guided by the exceptional expertise of Hira Bahadur and Dinesh Rai from Gokyo Treks & Expedition agency.

We were incredibly fortunate with the weather throughout our adventure, and thanks to their diligent care, my belongings consistently arrived in pristine condition at each lodge. Hira’s decision-making was consistently spot on, instilling complete trust in us. His patience during our numerous photo stops added a delightful touch to our journey, allowing us to have fun and moments of introspection. Together, we ceremoniously hung prayer flags on Kongma La, making it a special memory.

The entire trek was flawlessly organized, right from the airport pickups to our departure flights. Ammar’s assistance in arranging accommodation at the Aloft Hotel after our return from Lukla was immensely appreciated. Our three days in Kathmandu, exploring the world heritage sites with Ammar as our guide, were truly delightful and enjoyable.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Ammar for orchestrating our unforgettable three-passes trip, and to the entire team for their exceptional care, which gifted us with incredible memories. Overall, we are ecstatic with our experience and undoubtedly plan to engage your services again for our future Himalayan adventures. Cheers!
