Once trekkers reach Dingboche Valley trekkers take Kong Ma La Pass crossing route to reach Lobuche rather than through Thukla Pass route. Until Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar trekking activities are similar to Everest Base Camp Trekking. Trekkers then take route of Gokyo Valley Trekking from base camp. Places like Dzongla and Thagnak are situated sandwiching the Chola Pass. Trekkers perform activity of hiking Gokyo Ri or Fifth Lake before crossing Renjo La Pass to reach Thame Valley.
