All about the Everest 3 Peaks 3 Passes Trek.

The Everest Three High Passes Trek in the Khumbu region of Nepal offers one of the most rewarding and truly special experiences in trekking. With the first challenge being Everest Base Camp(5364m) you will then conquer the altitude of the three high passes: Renjo La (5,360m), Cho La (5,420m) and Kongma La (5,535m) along with Kala Patthar (5,545m).

The altitude and steep inclines make the hike to the 3 High Passes of Everest one of the most demanding treks in the Everest region. However the spectacular views make the tough journey worth while and the experience of natural and cultural beauty offered by the Khumbu region of Nepal literally takes youre breath away. Highlights also include ther views of many peaks towering 8000m or more from sea level. You will see the beautiful Island Peak, this a great peak in its own right for mountain climbing and some see this as a first step into mountaineering(See our peak trips for more information). The 2 glaciers, Ngozumpa and Khumbu glacier, with the otherworldly view of Gokyo valley with its glorious lakes making this a photographers dream.

This trek is also an opportunity to meet friendly Sherpas, their picturesque settlements, lifestyle, culture and traditions. March-May & September-December are the best times to plan Everest Three Passes treks, as one can also participate/observe the Tengboche Mani Rimdhu festival and dance (October) and Dumje festival (April). Nonetheless, Bucket List Adventures can design a perfect package throughout the year if required. Previous experience is not required; however, sound health, excellent stamina, mental and physical determination are definitely required to successfully complete the Everest 3 High Pass trek.

The standard 19 days Everest Three High Passes Trek itinerary is a guided trek (by team leader and local Sherpas) ensuring proper acclimatization with an average of 5-7 hour walk in a day. However, the itinerary can be fully customized to your requirements. The package price includes full board during the trek and bed and breakfast in Kathmandu.

After a 30-35 min flight to Lukla, the Everest 3 high passes hiking trail continues along the train until Namche from where the trail turns west to follow a clockwise trail that passes through different small settlements, forests, high passes, river, glaciers, lakes, and hills making a complete circuit route.

Experience Required

The Everest Base Camp via Three high passes is a tough and arduous trek. It is meant to be challenging. You must be a fit, regular hillwalker to take part, used to long, consecutive days walking in the British Mountains, preferably in Winter. You should have experience of walking steep, boulder-strewn paths where the use of hands has been essential to scramble upwards over rocky steps. Previous experience of Himalayan trekking is preferable, but not essential as long as you are a very regular and committed hillwalker. As this route takes you over remote high passes, experience of having been to 5000-metres before is ideal.
