Everest Three High Passes trek is one of Nepal’s most popular and challenging treks that takes  you over some of the highest mountain passes in the Everest region.  This trek is suitable for those serious trekkers who love challenge while crossing three most popular Everest high passes above 5000m without any technical climbing.

While heading towards upper Khumbu, you will climb through three highest and most scenic passes namely Kongmala Pass (5535m), Cho La pass (5368m), and Renjo La Pass (5,345m). The trek covers all the major places in the Everest region including Namche, Tyangboche Monastery, Everest base camp and Gokyo Lake. During the trek you will enjoy the awe-inspiring Himalayan mountain views, towering  peaks, picturesque villages and have an opportunity to visit Buddhist monasteries, Sherpa museum etc. This trek turns out to be  an unforgettable experience for every trekker.

We have designed the trek itinerary in such a way  that  a hiker gets better acclimatized  and pleasant walk  if s/he begins trek from east to west. It  means we begin from Lukla, the entry gate of the Everest region, walk through Dingboche, then Chhukung, crossing the 5,535m Kongma La Pass (the hardest of the 3 passes) to Lobuche. From Lobuche we continue trek to Everest Base Camp, Kala Patthar, crossing the 5368m Cho La Pass to Gokyo, and finally from Gokyo cross over the 5,345m Renjo La Pass down to Thame, Namche Bazaar and finally get back to  Lukla, from where we take flight to Kathmandu..

Everest Three High Passes trek is rather hard, but people who prefer to do  it must be in physically fit shape and have some experience.
