Trip Summarize –
Everest three high pass trek is the ultimate trekking experience which is a little bit longer and more challenging as we have to cross three high passes during the trek. This trail is not similar to Everest base camp trail but views are worth also unique and hard trekking. Three pass includes Renjo La (5,388m), Chola La (5,420m) and Kongma La (5,535m), Everest base camp, Kalapathar. You will also trek three walking peaks; Gokyo Ri (5,483m), Kala Patthar (5,545m) and Chukkung Ri (5,550m). The whole trek is challenging and offers you amazing vistas of world’s highest mountain giants.
Likewise, Everest three passes trekking is more adventure and difficult trek in Everest region which includes the high crossing of the Himalayas trail. Everest three pass also know as untouched and remote area trek. The journey of three passes begins from Kathmandu follow by flight to Lukla and start the trek passing through nice rivers and forests. From here we will trek to Phakding and trekking to Namche Bazaar then head west to Thame toward remote Nangpa Valley which is close to Tibet border. Our first pass is Renjo La pass; it is the tough but stunning view of Mount Everest and Cho Oyu helps you to make the trek more enjoyable. Then comes the Gokyo Lake where you can have a rest day and then climb to Gokyo Ri. Continuing to Ngozsumpa Glacier and we arrive our second Pass, the Cho La. This pass is mostly icy on the way while we go to the upper part in the winter season. You can also do Everest base camp helicopter tour which you can finish around in 4 hours if you don’t have time for Everest Three High Pass Trekking. You can also enjoy some world Heritage sightseeing of Kathmandu.
After enough of hustling we give our trek continuity and reach Kala Patthar then from there we descend to Lobuche. From here we trek to Kongma La and continue to Chukkung Ri. The villages here are very lovely with views of Ama Dablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu and Cho Oyu. After completion of the circuit, we return back to Lukla and on the way we can see Sherpa villages Namche bazar, Tengboche monastery. Finally Lukla, we come back to Kathmandu.
