Everest Three High Pass Trek is the stuff of dreams for those seeking the ultimate trekking adventure. It will take you to the less traveled and the absolute best trail that covers almost all of the Everest region, including Everest base camp and Kala Patthar. Trekking this route will take you to scenic viewpoints, challenging trails, climbs worthy of the Everest name, and the Sherpa settlements with warm hospitality.
Three High Pass Trek is a very coveted trekking route that invites seasoned trekkers from all across the world. This 20-day trekking journey has all the thrills you’d expect and then some. You will cross amazing high-altitude passes, Cho La Pass (5420 m.), Renjo La Pass (5360 m.), and Kongma La Pass (5540 m.), each more challenging than the other.
Among the 3 passes in the Everest region, we start with the Kongma La pass and continue to the base camp, Kala Patthar, Cho La Pass, Gokyo Ri, and finally, Renjo La Pass. You will have the privilege of watching the mightiest mountains like Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Cho Oyu, Makalu, and more from multiple angles and vantage points.
The beauty of the three passes trek is that it combines the Gokyo lakes trek, the classic Everest base camp trek, and Chukhung Ri peak climbing. You will spend over a week above the altitude of 4000 meters and crossing 5000 meters becomes a daily task.
What can I expect from Everest Three Pass Trek?
The three pass trek in the Everest region includes trekking through a wide range of terrain. It starts with a relatively flatter trail through the lush rhododendron forests winding along the curves of the Dudh Koshi river. The vegetation keeps getting sparser as we ascend up, and the trail starts getting rockier and icier.
The trail begins with flatter terrain and even goes downhill on the first day. However, the difficulty increases as the days progress and in no time, you will find yourself climbing the most spectacular passes in the Everest region. This trekking is doubly challenging because of the risk of altitude sickness as we stay exclusively at high altitudes. However, if you stick to the standard itinerary with enough rest days and an appropriate diet, the risks are next to none.
If you are willing to brave the challenges of the three pass trek, the rewards are plenty. We promise the most spectacular views among all the treks you will do in Nepal and probably the world. The Everest region is a feast for your eyes whichever direction you glance. Be ready with your camera and your heart to take it all in. For over two weeks, you will live with the Sherpa people who will treat you like a family member and by the time you’re done with the trek, you will be glad to have done it just to meet the kind people of the Himalayas.
