Everest Kongmala pass trek Routes
Most people will stay two nights at the Dingboche to acclimatize. Post-Dingboche, EBC trekkers head northwest past the village for the Duglha before continuing up to Lobuche. The Three Passes Trek will heads northeast from Dingboche up at the different valley to the village of Chukhung.
Following a traditional Three Passes Trek itinerary (if you’ve flown into Lukla), will put you at the Chukhung on your seventh day of trekking. If you’re feeling ambitious, Kongma La can be done from Dingboche instead of Chukhung, but this makes for a long and challenging day. However, it was not challenging one.
However, if you have time, I recommend the trip up Chukhung Ri from Chukhung after leaving Dingboche to help acclimatize and because the top of Chukhung Ri is spectacular scene to behold.
The route over Kongma La is entirely above the treeline and it heads at the northwest from Chukhung.
Finding and following the trail is not difficult as in good weather. Heading west, you cannot see Kongma La until you’re nearly over there, so do no be fooled by anything beforehand or you’ll be very disappointed.
Once you reach the pass, the way down (assuming a counterclockwise hike) is basically the very steep scree chute. You can see Lobuche at the west from the top of Kongma La (you cannot see Dingboche at the east), and you can also see the Khumbu Glacier which you will have to cross before getting on there.
“Crossing the glacier” is another thing that scares people doing the three passes trek, but the route that across the glacier is not hard to follow and cairns mark the way in some of the more tricky spots that you are unfamiliar with.
