Everest Three High Passes Trek

Everest Three High Passes Trek is an epic trek in the Khumbu region that crosses high alpine passes and explores beautiful valleys, Sherpa villages, glacial lakes, moraines & multiple viewpoints.

Everest Three High Passes Trek is a 22-day challenging but adventurous venture in the Khumbu region. The ultimate trek in the Himalayas offers distinct perspectives of Mt. Everest, pushing trekkers to unlock their high endurance level.

As the name of the package suggests, this trek involves crossing three high passes: Renjo La (5,360 m), Cho La (5,420 m), and Kongma La (5,540 m).

The fact that you trek to Everest Base Camp (5,364 m) and Kala Patthar (5,644 m) while exploring the Gokyo Village (4,750 m) and Gokyo Lakes (ranging from 4,700 m to 5,000 m) makes the Everest Three High Passes Trek itinerary is brilliant.

We hike to places like Hotel Everest View (3,962 m), Nagarjuna Hill (5,100 m), and Gokyo Ri (5,357 m). The initial part of the Everest Three High Passes Trek follows the classic EBC trek route, so you also get to explore the iconic villages, including Namche Bazaar (3,440 m).

Everest Three High Pass Trek is like climbing a peak itself. However, no technical climbing is required, or any climbing gear is involved. You get to explore the hidden corners of the Khumbu region on 3 High Passes Trekking and witness the most stunning mountain views.

The Everest High Pass trek is fit for experienced trekkers who can walk at least 6 hours a day on steep, rugged uphill trails and can resist thin air & limited services.

The other part of the three high passes trek is about cultural experience and mingling with the locals.

As you spend a long time in the mountains, you will learn much about Sherpas and people from other communities like Rai, Limbu, and Bhotiya. While trekking, you visit ancient monasteries like Khumjung (3,790 m), Tengboche (3,860 m), and Pangboche (3,985 m).

Attractions of the Everest Three High Passes Trek

The bustle of Kathmandu and never-ending temples

Kathmandu is known as the City of Temples. Old temples can be seen in every corner of the city, supporting this statement. Before leaving Nepal, you must visit and explore the main historical monuments.

To ensure you visit as many tourist sites as possible, we spend two full days in Kathmandu at the beginning and end of the journey.

You explore the town's palace, Kathmandu Durbar Square. The tour also leads you to the famous Monkey Temple, Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, and museums and galleries.

Thrilling Lukla flights

You'll have the most exciting flight of life, flying in and out of Lukla. It's a 35-minute flight between Kathmandu (1,400 m) and Lukla (2,860 m).

The flight offers spectacular aerial views of the Himalayas. Lukla Airport's location, elevation, and tiny runway have made it popular in travel and aviation.

The lush rhododendron forests and picturesque villages

The Everest Three High Passes Trek begins with a gentle walk through lush forest and later joins dense alpine forests. Forests of rhododendron, pine, fir, juniper, and birch enhance the lower trekking routes. The diverse flora and fauna along the way add wilderness to the journey.

Likewise, the trail goes through many small and big villages. Some villages are works of art, to be honest. The surrounding views boost their beauty.

Our major night stops are Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Chhukung, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, Dzongla, Thangnak, Gokyo Village, Lumde, and Thame.

Locals and their warm hospitality

The natives of the Everest region are very friendly and welcoming. They run the lodges and other services along the trail, which make our journey somewhat bearable.

As we all know about Sherpas, the Everest Three High Passes Trek provides a unique opportunity to experience their lifestyle and spend time with them.

Expert and reliable on-field crew

You trek with a record-breaking team of guides who have mapped numerous trekking and climbing routes in the Himalayas not once or twice but multiple times.

To lead Outfitter Himalaya's trips, we have assembled a hand-picked team comprising the finest guides and porters in the industry. Moreover, we offer a tested itinerary that provides the best trekking experience and keeps the trekkers safe.

Mountain views & other Himalayan wonder

Despite all the hurdles involved in the Everest Three High Passes Trek, this trek is the best option for witnessing jaw-dropping mountain landscapes.

Very few trekkers cross the three high passes in the Khumbu region, so only a few have seen the dramatic scenery from the top.

Numerous mountains are visible throughout the trail, including the eight-thousanders Mt. Everest (8,849 m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m), Mt. Cho Oyu (8,188 m), and Mt. Makalu (8,463 m).

Some other famous giants you see are Nuptse (7,861 m), Ama Dablam (6,812 m), Island Peak (6,160 m), Pumori (7,161 m), Cholatse (6,440 m), Taboche (6,495 m), Thamserku (6,608 m), and Kangtega (6,782 m). The lower part of the trail is covered with lush green hills, and the upper part boasts barren rocky hills.

Then come other Himalayan wonders, like gorgeous waterfalls, lakes, streams, rhododendron forests, moraines, glaciers, gorges, and icefalls. As you approach the high altitude, the scenery only gets alluring.

Everest Three High Passes Itinerary

This fabulous journey begins in Kathmandu. We explore this bustling city's stupas, temples, palaces, and local bazaars and catch a thrilling flight to Lukla on the third day.

The first few days of the trail follow the famous route to Everest base camp through Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, and Dingboche.

From Dingboche, we ascend to Chhukung and cross the Kongma La pass before descending towards Lobuche village. The trail climbs to Everest base camp and Kala Patthar.

From here onwards, we leave the crowd and embark on a further remote/rugged route to Gokyo Valley. But first, we must conquer the glacial trail to Dzongla and cross the second pass, Cho La.

It's time to explore the stunning Gokyo Lakes with substantial religious values.

We hike to Gokyo Ri and soon cross the last pass, Renjo La. Trekking through Thame, we walk to Namche Bazaar and retrace the trail to Lukla.

Everest High Passes Trek difficulty

Three High Passes Trek is a demanding trek that takes over 15 days of walking in the Himalayas. The trail goes above 5,000 meters many times during the trek.

The Three High Passes Trek route is forested and rough at the beginning, steeper, rugged, and packed with loose boulders in the upper part. It's an incredibly demanding yet rewarding journey that requires muscular fitness.

Everest Three High Passes Trek is one of the most extended treks in the Himalayas. It covers approximately 160 to 185 kilometers (99 to 115 miles) and, on average, 6 hours of walking daily.

As the elevation increases, minimal modern facilities become scarce and expensive, and the risks of altitude sickness are always present.

Everest High Pass Trek Preparation

Here are a few things you can do to prepare for the Everest Three High Passes Trek. Once you book the trek, our team will assist you in preparing and providing other essential information.

We advise you to keep at least four weeks on your hand to prepare your body for the trek. If you are an active, high-altitude traveler and fit, you can make a last-minute booking (at least five days to one time).

  • Strength training and cardio are the best exercises. You have to focus on building stamina and core body strength.
  • Go on short hikes in your trekking shoes. Do not wear a brand-new pair of shoes while trekking.
  • If you have any medical history, we recommend you consult the doctor about all the medical possibilities your body may see because of the high altitude.
  • Research and see what trekking gear is best for you & your budget. You can buy/rent gear in Thamel, Kathmandu, at the best price.

    Outfitter Himalaya: An excellent company for Everest High Passes Trek

    We are just back from a trekking holiday with Outfitter and can only endorse the comments made by all other reviewers. From the first email to Arjun, requesting details of possible trips, to our final drop-off at the airport at 5 am everything went as smoothly as clockwork.

    Our inward flight was delayed by 6 hours due to fog at Kathmandu Airport. We had further delays due to the large numbers queuing for visas. Despite these long delays as soon as we emerged from the airport, we spotted our pick-up. We have no idea how long he had to wait around for us, but he was a most welcome sight! This attention to detail was replicated in all our experiences on the tour.

    Our guide and his two assistants did everything to make our trek as enjoyable as possible. The accommodation, meals, the pace of the trek, etc. - were all excellent. As we had a spare day at the end of our trek, the company organized a tour of Bhaktapur and Patan.

    For anyone considering a trip to Nepal, no matter what their particular needs are, we would without hesitation recommend Outfitter as the best tour/trekking company.

    Everest High Passes Trek

    The Everest High Passes trek with Outfitter Himalaya was one of the best decisions I made. I spent about 3 weeks (18 days on the trek) doing the Everest Three High Passes Trek with a friend. The lodges arranged were great, which includes a friendly and helpful crew in each of the lodges.

    Our guide, Dipak was very knowledgeable. He knows his stuff and reacts calmly and efficiently to emergencies (or actually, any situation). Due to unforeseen circumstances, my friend and I decided to split up and he was able to come up with a "best fit" solution for both of us and because of that, I was able to go on and complete the trek (my childhood dream!).

    I was impressed with such quick wit and flexibility on the trek. It is, in my opinion, crucial to have a guide you can trust, and the bonus would be to earn a friendship out of it. Our porter, Birta, was equally awesome. He was very experienced and took good care of us like a silent care bear. This combination of crew and us (and the gorgeous Everest region) or what the guide would call "team”) - eventually grew on me so much that I felt sad that it had to end! I just totally had the best trip of my life.

    Back in Kathmandu, our requests for an accommodation upgrade were also quickly responded to by Arjun. Everything stated in the package was delivered, and emails were replied to promptly.
