Lens choice for EBC trek

I am planning on trekking to Everest Base Camp in November this year and plan to take my R6.  However I am having trouble with lens choice for the trip.  I understand that telephoto shots with the imposing mountains will be the primary subject rather than wide angle shots that dwarf the giants.

The only telephoto lens I have is an old EF 70-300 kit lens so I am shopping for a new lens.  Given weight considerations I plan to leave my EF 24-70 f2.8 L and 35mm f1.4 L lenses at home and use the RF 24-105 F4-7.1.  I am after recommendations for RF lenses either 24-240 or RF 100-400 f5.6-8 or RF 70-200 f4L (price is a concern) and I may throw in RF 16mm F2 or RF 50mm f1.8 if I purchase one of the non-L tele lenses.  Also I would be interested to hear recommendations of an ICE to carry my gear in my Osprey Mira 32 backpack and ways to carry the camera (perhaps a peak design clip?).  TIA
