Everest Three High Passes is considered one of the most diverse Adventurous treks in Nepal. The main three high passes in this trip are above 5000m from sea level and enthusiasts who love adventure love the inspiration and challenge this particular trek has to offer. Additionally, there are 3 more equally exhilarating trekking options around this trek namely; Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Valley, Everest view Trek.

This trek is full of surprises and the package includes airport pickup and drops along with sightseeing the next day. Kathmandu is considered the city of temples, god, goddesses and therefore the places to visit in Kathmandu would be Kathmandu durbar square, Patan Durbar square, Swayambunath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Bhaktapur Durbar Square and the list continues.

We will start off the trek with a flight to Lukla and there, we get to witness the splendor of mother nature. The tall lofty mountains speak stories that transcend the soul and stirs within us the feeling of gratitude. In 1976, Sagarmatha National Park was established to protect the Flora and Fauna of the Himalaya. The hiking starts through numerous valleys of Khumbu namely Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Tengboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, and many more places. This wonderful trek comes to an end in 20 days and by then  Mt.Everest, Mt.Choyou, Mt AmaDablam, Mt.Thamserku would have already imprinted our hearts.

These three high passes can be trialed clockwise and anti-clockwise both. The clockwise route passes through Renjola pass, Chola pass, and Kongmala whereas the anti-clock route follows through the center of Namche, Kongmla pass, Chola pass via Everest base camp, and then finally to Renjola pass and then again back to Namche.

The trek can be customized as per your needs as well.

  1. What an Amazing view Thanks Exciiting Himalaya
    Ambu Japan12th May, 2019

    I just finished the 3 Passes Trek anti-clockwise with my friends including Everest base camp with Nabaraj Bhantana as my guide. He was very friendly and knowledgeable of all the surrounding peaks and safely guided me throughout the trek. Especially view from kongmala chola and renjola was mesmerizing. I will highly be recommended this company to my colleges.
