Everest Three High Passes Trekking is an incredible trip that takes you on the adventure to experience three high Himalayan passes in the Everest region. This wonderful adventure trek goes through the high passes of Renjo La (5340m), Cho La (5420m) and Kongma La (5535m) including hiking to spectacular Gokyo Ri (5360).

Apart from achieving incredible three high passes, the trek brings an incredible opportunity to explore beautiful lakes amidst the mountain peaks at Gokyo. The trip also goes to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar for a stunning Himalayan panorama and sunrise over the Himalayas.

Although a challenging trip, you will get some unforgettable memory of adventure trekking on this trip. Unlike a normal Everest Base Camp trekking, this trek shows Everest and other mountain peaks from several different angles and gives more opportunity to explore the charming beauty of the region.  The Everest Three High Passes Trekking alludes to a bold travelling experience in Nepal that provides food as a test to trekking lovers. During the trip, you will run over three passes which incorporate Renjo La (5360m), Cho La (5368m), and Kongma La (5330m), which comprise extraordinary harmony and tranquillity. The trip comprises fantastic travelling trails that go through the Gokyo Valley and Everest Base Camp. This ideal travelling experience allows you to climb three pinnacles: Gokyo Ri, Kala Pattar, and Chukkung Ri, and would positively allow you to accumulate never-ending recollections.

The Everest Three High passes trekking is an eighteen-day trip that follows the Everest Base Camp course prior to separating and taking you more than three passes that give stunning perspectives on the Himalayas and Mount Everest. It's been named quite possibly the most wonderful journeys on the planet, and in light of current circumstances! While going on the Everest Base Camp course is decent as a result of its business status, the three passes journey takes you past that side of the area and show you significantly a greater amount of its excellence. The Gokyo Lakes journey is another well-known trip in Sagarmatha National Park, and this takes you through the endpoint of that course.

FAQ'S

We fly to Lukla from Kathmandu for about half an hour on a small plane. Although the plane is small, the flight brings beautiful sights of mountains. Then we trek for multiple days up and down the trail towards the Everest amidst the marvellous mountains.

Fitness is the key requirement to trek to the Everest region as it involves walking up and down the mountains and goes pretty high in altitude. You definitely have to be in good physical fitness along with strong mental toughness.

Although you need a good level of physical fitness to be able to trek to Everest, you do not need to take any special training. However, a regular preparation for at least six months before the trek starts is highly advisable. You can go for regular jogging, short hiking trips – up and down the hill if possible, cardio workout and workout on improving overall fitness.

Apart from physical fitness, you also need to prepare yourself to survive with just bare essentials in the mountains.

You can expect to walk six hours on average every day during the trek however the trek duration is completely dependent on your pace of walking.

Will there be any rest day along the trail as we trek?
Yes, the trekking will have certain designated days as rest and acclimatization days as we trek up towards the higher elevation. The breaks are designed in accordance with the elevation gain and further days and elevation to go.

As trekking in Nepal is all about traversing up and down the mountains, you will have to walk the trail that goes up and down all the way through. Even the trek that is graded as ‘easy trek’ might feel difficult for some trekkers because of the winding trails up and down the mountains.

But as the trail passes through the wonderfully scenic region and villages along the way, the feeling of difficulty vanishes in the ocean of joy that the mountains and surroundings bring to you.

We advise you to get ready with a proper pair of waterproof trekking shoes, worn a few times already is even better. For a detailed list of things to bring, please refer to our Equipment List.

An exhilarating adventure up in the mountains is for sure on this trek. Apart from that, you can enjoy incredible views of Himalayan vistas including the Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku and many other mountains. A wonderful cultural and lifestyle experience of the Sherpa people living in the region is another inspiring attraction that you come along while trekking in the Everest.

As the trek goes to pretty high altitude, anyone, who treks there, is prone to the altitude sickness. However, this risk of altitude sickness can be lessened by drinking enough water; walking on a slow and gradual pace, enjoying the views, taking enough breaks along the walk and practising some breathing exercises.

Getting sick up in the mountains during the trek is certainly not a good thing to happen to anyone. But it happens sometimes and it is good to come prepared to face any situation while doing this adventure trip. If you, unfortunately, get sick up in the mountains, our guide and the team will take the best care of you and take the most appropriate step for your safety. Those steps might include from denying you the further journey up to rescue you by helicopter. But before taking these big and last steps ahead when there are no other alternatives left, your situation will be carefully observed and the best possible will be done to make you able to continue on the journey.

Although there may not be as many choices of foods in the mountains as in Kathmandu, you will get a food menu with some varieties of foods. However, the famous Nepali dish, Dal Bhat, fills your plate for most of the time and other times you can have food of your choice from the choices available in the menu.

When you are trekking in the mountain, there are three different options for drinking water. First, you can buy bottled water that is safe to drink although price gets more expensive as you trek higher. The second option is to ask the lodge you stay to fill your bottle with boiled water, which might cost you some money. And the third option is to buy water purifying tablets or rod and take it along with your on the trek. You can fill tap water along the trail and you can use the water purifying tablet or rod to turn it into safe drinking water that is the cheapest of all.
