Everest 3 Passes Trek - 17 Days Trekking

Duration: 21 Days   |   Based on 4 Reviews Trip MapPhotosDownload

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 trekking 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 to making this trek an unforgettable experience.

The journey to Everest three 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 other ornaments of the Everest (Sagarmatha) National park which is quite interesting if you are a nature lover.

The Everest 3 passes hiking expedition 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.

If the weather is good, we grasp the opportunity to climb Gokyo Ri today instead of next day to enjoy the scene from the best viewpoint of Everest Region. Moreover, Gokyo is not only popular for its grand view from Gokyo Peak but also for the six lakes which it hosts. Definitely we would not miss the chance to observe the fourth (Thonak Tsho) and fifth lakes (Ngozuma Tsho). If interested, we climb on a hill at the edge of the Lakes to get astounding views of Cho-Oyu, Gyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu.

Today, we trek to the Cho La Pass. ChoLa pass is also another highlight of this trip. Today is going to be one of the toughest days. The pass is not itself difficult but it is steep and involves a glacier traverse on the eastern side. We need to be careful as the trail is vertical and the rocks glazed by ice add trouble to the trekkers making the trail slippery. Our trail climbs through a ravine and a rocky trail. So, we climb up continuously up from Phedi. We trek through the side of a frozen lake while we come to the top of the pass decorated with prayer flags. We need to pass through some crevasses before we reach Dzongla, another beautiful place with a complete view of Mt. Cholatse, Mt. Ama Dablam, Lobuche peak and the Pheriche village far below.

Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Lingtern, Mt. Khumbutse, Mt. Nuptse, etc. A small ascent would take us to Thangma Riju from where we perceive 360 degree vista of snowy mountains. Climbing steeply up to the top through the torrent of Changri Glacier, we catch our first glimpse of Kala Patthar, a grey-green knoll beneath the Mt. Pumori. As we reach Gorak Shep, we will find snow-capped mountains looming all around us including the top of the world - Mt. Everest. After a brief lunch and rest, we take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake. Continuing straight ahead, we come through the Indian army mountaineers' memorials. Only upon reaching the Everest Base Camp do we really appreciate the Everest climbers who brave the hazardous route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer's tents stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. Everest actually is not visible from here. Back to Gorak Shep for Overnight stay. 

  • Accommodation:Teahouse/guest house

We start early in the morning to catch the dramatic views from Kala Patthar witnessing the first light of day shining on Mt. Everest. However, we need to get prepared for an early morning, dark and cold temperature (-10 to -14 C) departure beforehand. Further, there is always the potential of chilly winds which are quite common. Familiar peaks such as Lingtren, Khumbutse, Changtse tower to the east even as Everest begins to reveal itself emerging between the west shoulder crest and Nuptse. During the ascent to Kala Patthar we can pause to catch our breath at several outstanding view points to snap pictures. After several hours of ascent, we will be Kala Patthar. From this juncture, we scramble to climb the rocky outcrop near to the summit marked by cairns and prayer flags. As we reach the top, we sit on the Kala Patthar where our eyes rook taking in the unbelievable Himalayan Panorama, wandering from one mighty massif to another. We take as many pictures as we can and take the in view with our mind's eye to last lifetime. Trek back to Gorak Shep, have a breakfast and trek down to Lobuche. Overnight at Guest house in Lobuche.

From Tenboche, we make a steep descent and the trail leads us back along the Dudh Kosi River. We keep a lookout for wild life such as mountain goats also known as Himalayan Thar, snow leopards, colorful pheasants, etc., while passing through the forest by the trail. After passing a Chorten, we reach the army camp at of Namche Bazaar where we want to take a long last look back to Lhotse, the tip of Everest and Tengboche. The final steep climb traverses the hill side taking us to Namche Bazaar. We take a nice hot shower and have very relaxed sleep in our cozy room in Namche Bazaar. 

  • Accommodation:Teahouse/guest house
  • Meals:BLD
  • Place:Namche Bazzar

The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast flowing Dudh Koshi and its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. By today we start to get warmed up by the light breeze. Any remaining sore throats and colds will be gone by today as we pass through this charming mountain air. Although we are travelling the same route down, we feel completely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance snow covered peaks. We walk through the Sherpa villages' noticing impressive faith in Buddhism and culture of prayer stones and prayers flag while we walk through the villages.

    Useful Information

    Best Time to Trek to Everest 3 Passes 

    The best time to trek to Everest 3 Passes is between mid-February to the end of May and mid-September to mid-December when the weather conditions are suitable for this trekking. Although the pretty best time to trek to Everest 3 Passes is in October and November when it is dry and the weather is mild, although at higher altitudes the temperature still plummets below freezing at night so be well prepared. The spring months between March and May are also the main trekking season, although the temperatures are higher and there are occasional rains in the region.

    Fitness Required for the Everest Adventure 3 Passes Trek

    Everest 3 Passes Trek is pretty much challenging, reaching heights of 5,545m, and walking for between 5 to 7 hours a day, therefore a high level of fitness is required. Nevertheless, you are able to walk at a steady pace and regular stops will be made en-route each day so the physical exertion, though strenuous, is not sustained. Mount Everest region offers some of the best trekking tours in the world, with stunning scenery and magnificent mountain ranges. And, you do not need to be an athlete to undertake either of these treks; simply require a good level of fitness, gained from regular exercise and a sense of adventure. Better fitness will allow you to adjust with ease, leaving you to enjoy yourself and your surroundings. We at Alpine Eco Trek suggest you begin a fitness program at least three months before the trek departure. Take part in regular activities such as joining a gym, cycling, swimming, jogging, tennis, walking and bushwalking.

    Safety

    Safety is extremely important especially in high altitude trekking where we have years of experience. Our Everest 3 Passes trek package allows enough time for you to acclimatize and adjust to the altitude. Unlike some other trekking companies, we do not reduce the number of days required for acclimatization in order to reduce the trip cost. We don’t compromise on safety. We expect and we plan for the unexpected. 
    We brief you well on how to prevent altitude sickness. Our experienced guides will take good care of you and provide valuable information on Everest 3 Passes trek. All of our guides and porters have proper equipment themselves and they are well insured.  

    Insurance 

    Travelling is an investment and we believe that insurance makes your investment secure.  It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medical issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.
    A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some make special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in the Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too.  Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable. 
    Please kindly provide us your copy of the insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip. 

    Accommodations

    Accommodations during Everest 3 Passes hiking expedition, we use simple Sherpa family-run teahouses/lodges with a large sociable central dining area and a cozy wood-burning fire. Rooms are on a twin share basis and you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. Most guesthouses/lodges have shared bathroom facilities (particularly during Everest 3 passes trek) and you would not always have access to a shower. When there is no shower facility you will be given a bucket of hot water to wash. The guesthouses/lodges usually charge for this service though we offer it complimentary on all high adventure treks. If you need to charge the battery of your camera or mobile phone and etc, the guesthouses/lodges might charge a small amount of money which you can pay them directly. You need to understand that when you are trekking you will be away from civilization and the comforts of home. It is an adventure holiday. Despite the lack of facilities, these guesthouses/ lodges certainly have a rustic charm. Most are blessed with breathtaking views and being family-run operations, offer a great insight into the daily life of the Himalayan people and their culture and tradition.

    Meals during the Everest three Passes Trek

    During the Everest 3 Passes, meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are included. Meals at the guesthouses/ lodges are normally vegetarian and staple foods include steamed rice, vegetable curry, lentil soup, noodles, pasta, dumplings, fries, and stew. Desert is not provided, although it's usually possible to purchase chocolate bars, biscuits, and sweets at the lodge’s bakery. At each meal, you will be given a cup of tea or coffee and you can purchase additional drinks from the guesthouses/lodges. During the Everest 3 passes trek, mineral water is readily available to buy and the cost ranges from Rs 100 - 500 per liter depending on the altitude (the higher you are, the more things cost). Alternatively, you can refill a bottle at guesthouses/lodges and water stations by paying a nominal fee of Rs.20-50 and use purification tablets to make it safer to drink. 

    Drinking-Water

    As tap water is not safe to drink in Nepal, only drink bottled mineral water which is readily available in tea shops, guesthouses, lodges, and restaurants. You should also avoid salads which are quite raw and may be washed in unhygienic water.

    Guides and Porters

    Everest 3 passes trek will lead by experienced local guides. They are carefully selected on the basis of their experience and knowledge about the region and leadership skills. Our porters will carry your main rucksack; you will just need to carry a small day pack for your water, camera, and essentials. Our trekking guides and porters have taken the following training: 

    • First Aid Training
    • Trekking Guide Training 
    • English Language Training
    • Climbing and Mountaineering Training 
    • Conservation and Biodiversity Training

    What to Expect

    Nepal is a small beautiful Himalayan kingdom. It is a developing country with limited infrastructure. Coupled with this and ever-changing weather conditions and it is no surprise that at times there can be delays or cancellation of treks and tours. This may take the form of flight delays due to the low cloud in the mountains or foggy weather in Kathmandu. The road network in Nepal is quite congested in the major cities too and suffers from poor maintenance on some routes again causing delays and a rough ride from time to time. Whilst Kathmandu has a good choice of high-quality hotels, in other areas hotels and facilities are not as high as western standards. Alpine Eco Trek tries to offset any unforeseen problems but patience and understanding should be included when packing. Bear in mind that tourism is still relatively new to these wonderful Himalayan regions, things do not always go smoothly and a sense of adventure is a must.

    Altitude Sickness 

    Our Everest 3 passes adventure package is carefully designed to ensure there is plenty of time for ample acclimatization and cases of High Altitude Sickness are rare. High Altitude Sickness is not related to your level of physical fitness; it occurs as a result of failure to adapt to High Altitudes (usually over 3000 meters) and can affect anyone (no matter how fit is he/she). The common symptoms are loss of appetite, headaches, nausea, short breathing, sleeplessness and the swelling of fingers and glands. Primary treatment is to descend to a lower altitude as quickly as possible which normally results in rapid improvement and recovery. 

    Weather / Climate in Nepal 

    Weather/climate in Nepal, June to September are the monsoon season and during these months it is very hot and rains almost every day. From October to November is much drier with pleasant temperatures in the daytime and good visibility, and at this time of year, the weather is ideal for trekking. The winter months from December to February tend to be mild in the daytime but can become very cold at night especially in the hilly regions and mountains. The month of January is the coldest month of the year. Temperatures will go down to minus in the mountains. Mid-March to May is very warm, with occasional rains. The annual temperatures peak in May just before the monsoons begin. The best time to do the Everest 3 passes tour is during the spring (from March to May) and autumn (from Mid-September to mid-December)

    Equipment Checklist 

    What to pack for Adventure Everest three passes? Well, it is highly recommended to pack light and to bring clothes that can be layered for warmth. There are plenty of equipment shops selling clothes and trekking equipment at very cheap prices in Kathmandu and en route, so there is no need to worry about not packing enough. This equipment checklist below suggests several items you might bring on a tour/trek:

    • A large duffel bag for two of you: - This is for the majority of your gear that a porter will carry for you.
    • Day pack: - Bring a comfortable pack to carry your personal items such as water bottles, Water purifier, camera, snacks, hat, and a change of clothes.
