Everest 3 Passes Trek

Duration: 21 Days   |  

Everest 3 Passes trek is one of the best adventurous treks in the Khumbu region. We have designed this trip for those brave adventure seekers who wish to have a thrill-full experience in their life. This trek is one of the most famous, challenging and strenuous treks in this region, set amongst stunningly high Himalayan scenery. Everest 3 Passes Trek 16 Days Holiday provides a great opportunity to the trekkers since this journey includes passes such as Kongma la pass (5535m), Chola la pass (5370m), Renjo la pass (5338m) and other highlights such as Gokyo lakes, Gokyo Ri, Kalapather and Everest base camp. Monumental landscapes, striking and stunning peaks, tapering ridges and colorful villages with culturally rich Sherpa people, contribute in making this trek an unforgettable experience.

The journey to Everest 3 Passes Trek starts with a scenic and terrific flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. This flight will undoubtedly make your heart skip a beat when the first experience of your adventure starts with the airplane landing to Lukla's tiny airstrip. We spent several days trekking through the Sagarmatha National Park and homelands of the Sherpa people, walking amongst and past the most stunning mountains. The trekker enjoys an extra day at Namche Bazaar, amidst the bustling market town in the heart of Sherpa land. Trekkers pass through Chhukung, a small village set among the high summer grazing pastures of the region and Gokyo Lake which is also known as Scoundrel's Viewpoint. The rest days allow time to explore further and to acclimatize, an important factor in every trekking.

During the Everest 3 Passes trek, we will have a great chance to experience the hospitality of the Sherpa people and get an opportunity to learn more about their cultures and traditions. We also discover the picturesque villages, colorful markets, unique festivals and legendary monasteries. The flora and fauna are another ornaments of the Everest (Sagarmatha) National park which is quite interesting if you are a nature lover. The Everest 3 passes trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic sights of the Himalayas including four of the world's highest peaks; Mt. Cho Oyu (8201 m), Mt. Makalu (8481 m), Mt. Lhotse (8516m) and Mt. Everest (8848m). We also get a chance to climb Kalapather at an altitude of 5545 m (from where you get the closest view of Mt. Everest) and Everest base camp (5364m) - Khumbu Icefall. After exploring this striking place, we cross over Chola-la pass (5386m), heading towards the Gokyo valley. An excursion to the fourth and fifth lakes would be an extra attraction in Gokyo valley from where the views are exquisite. The trek offers its trekkers with a sight of Ngozumpa glacier which is the largest glacier in the entire Himalayas within Nepal. The Gokyo RI is considered as one of the best viewpoints in the entire Khumbu region. Renjo la pass provides a lifetime opportunity of witnessing the astounding panoramic views of Everest and other mountain range. The Renjo la pass route is off the usual beaten track and it provides a great view of the Gokyo lakes on one side, the RermoPokhari lakes on the other side, and several snow-capped peaks in the background. After an incredible view from the Renjo-la pass, the trail descends following the Thame village. We then trek our way back to Phakding, then towards Lukla and finally arrive to Kathmandu.
