Everest High Pass Trek is located in eastern Nepal. Home to the tallest peak in the world, the Solukhumbu district, popularly known as Everest 3 Passes Trekking in Everest region, has an almost mystical status in the world of trekking. With its towering eight of eight thousand peaks, colossal glaciers, and icy emerald lakes, it is the true representation of the snowy wonderland of your dreams. Perhaps the most famous trekking region in the whole world, Everest region annually welcomes tens of thousands of trekkers flocking to the region to have grandstand views of Everest and its neighbors: Nuptse and Lhotse. One such trek in the region popular for its enthralling adventure is the Everest High Passes Trek. Hailed as one of the finest treks in the region, the Everest Three High Passes Trek is truly a challenging and famed trekking trail that will take you to the absolute best of the Everest region. During the 19-day long trek, you will be able to visit landmarks like the famous, Everest base camp and Chola pass to Gokyo Valley and its magical lakes, and Gokyo Ri famous for its panoramic view of eastern mountains.

However, the main highlight and the focal point of the journey is crossing three high adrenaline-pumping Everest passes. The Trek itinerary involves crossing three very high passes: Khongma-La Pass (5535m) Chola-La Pass (5368m) and Renjo La Pass (5338m), which packs in a good chunk of adventure for thrill-seekers.

Everest high passes trekking coupled with the ascents to Kala Patthar and Gokyo region and the exploration of Everest base camp Trek provides the ultimate and most wholesome Everest experience in the Khumbu region. If that’s not enough, the trek will also take you to less-trodden and remote corners like Nangpa La Valley, Sherpa village of Marlung, and the monastery village of Thame, which provide a change from often trekker-packed trails.

We commence our journey with a scenic 35-minute long flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek begins from Phakding and encompasses famous destinations like the unofficial Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, the ancient Thame Monastery, and less frequented villages of Lungdeng and Marlung.

Since we will also trek through parts of Sagarmatha National Park, we will be able to witness rapidly changing vegetation and topography, and the rich flora and fauna species the region houses. All three passes that we will cross during the trek have their respective points of challenges and gratification which makes the experience rich.

From Renjo La Pass, we can have surreal views of the Gokyo village and its beautiful cobalt-blue lakes. From the top of Tsho-La Pass, we can have amazing views of the Ngozumpa Glacier and Everest Base Camp. Finally, the top of Kongma La Pass reveals the majestic views of the spectacular Mt. AmaDablam, Mt. Thamserku, and Mt. Kongtega among others.

Everest High Passes Trek surroundings are speckled and iconic – the trails and accommodations range from time-worn classic paths of Khumbu to meticulous and less-frequented high passes of Everest. This is the perfect trek choice for you if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind trekking adventure at the highest elevations in the world.

The Three High Passes involves Kongma-La, Cho-La and Renjo-La with visit of Everest base camp trek

I was so surprised to be in Nepal, very friendly people, where everything was normal and peaceful life. Joining Three High Passes Trekking was just great and marvelous. An adventure worth experiencing facing the outmost views of the world’s highest peaks along with the beautiful local culture of Sherpa. 
The trek was quite hard and challenging sometimes, but the expert guide of Team Himalaya made the journey easier and worth the trek.

The Three High Passes involve Kongma-La, Cho-La, and Renjo-La with the visit to the Everest base camp trek. Truly a tough adventure but possible with the great guide and staff of Team Himalaya.

We are grateful to Team Himalaya for this wonderful, enjoyable adventure Everest Three High Passes Treks.  

It was a wonderful and best way to experience all of the high scenic Khumbu region from east to west. Although it was quite tough and strenuous on some areas of climb and long descent. I found the Cho-La pass was quite tough compared to the other two high passes of Kongma and Renjo-La. But at the end completing each pass makes you feel in high spirits and energetic. 
The views from all high passes were breathtaking and unimaginable, I would recommend to hardy trekkers to join on this adventure. It is well worth the hard effort of much climb and long tiring descent.  We are grateful to Team Himalaya for this wonderful, enjoyable adventure Everest Three High Passes Treks.

Everest High Pass Trek is located in eastern Nepal. Home to the tallest peak in the world, the Solukhumbu district, popularly known as Everest 3 Passes Trekking in Everest region, has an almost mystical status in the world of trekking. With its towering eight of eight thousand peaks, colossal glaciers, and icy emerald lakes, it is the true representation of the snowy wonderland of your dreams. Perhaps the most famous trekking region in the whole world, Everest region annually welcomes tens of thousands of trekkers flocking to the region to have grandstand views of Everest and its neighbors: Nuptse and Lhotse. One such trek in the region popular for its enthralling adventure is the Everest High Passes Trek. Hailed as one of the finest treks in the region, the Everest Three High Passes Trek is truly a challenging and famed trekking trail that will take you to the absolute best of the Everest region. During the 19-day long trek, you will be able to visit landmarks like the famous, Everest base camp and Chola pass to Gokyo Valley and its magical lakes, and Gokyo Ri famous for its panoramic view of eastern mountains.

However, the main highlight and the focal point of the journey is crossing three high adrenaline-pumping Everest passes. The Trek itinerary involves crossing three very high passes: Khongma-La Pass (5535m) Chola-La Pass (5368m) and Renjo La Pass (5338m), which packs in a good chunk of adventure for thrill-seekers.

Everest high passes trekking coupled with the ascents to Kala Patthar and Gokyo region and the exploration of Everest base camp Trek provides the ultimate and most wholesome Everest experience in the Khumbu region. If that’s not enough, the trek will also take you to less-trodden and remote corners like Nangpa La Valley, Sherpa village of Marlung, and the monastery village of Thame, which provide a change from often trekker-packed trails.

We commence our journey with a scenic 35-minute long flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The trek begins from Phakding and encompasses famous destinations like the unofficial Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, the ancient Thame Monastery, and less frequented villages of Lungdeng and Marlung.

Since we will also trek through parts of Sagarmatha National Park, we will be able to witness rapidly changing vegetation and topography, and the rich flora and fauna species the region houses. All three passes that we will cross during the trek have their respective points of challenges and gratification which makes the experience rich.

From Renjo La Pass, we can have surreal views of the Gokyo village and its beautiful cobalt-blue lakes. From the top of Tsho-La Pass, we can have amazing views of the Ngozumpa Glacier and Everest Base Camp. Finally, the top of Kongma La Pass reveals the majestic views of the spectacular Mt. AmaDablam, Mt. Thamserku, and Mt. Kongtega among others.

Everest High Passes Trek surroundings are speckled and iconic – the trails and accommodations range from time-worn classic paths of Khumbu to meticulous and less-frequented high passes of Everest. This is the perfect trek choice for you if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind trekking adventure at the highest elevations in the world.

Day 18 : International departure for home ward bound.

Sadly, today marks the conclusion of your stay in Nepal. After spending a memorable and amazing time in the mountains of the Himalayas with the superb support of Team Himalaya guides and staff, you will say goodbye to us. Three hours before your trip, a courteous representative from our company will transport you to the terminal at Kathmandu International Airport. Though we have parted ways with you now, we are likely to bump into each other again in the future.
 
You will arrive at the high point of this entire journey today, making it yet another intriguing day of your quest. You're going to have a difficult climb as you ascend to Kalapathar from Gorakshep and descend down to Lobuche village. You reach Kala Patthar after several hours of a challenging trek and narrow paths. From here, is a further 50 meters of rough, hard elevation until arriving at Main Kala Pattar's (5545m) summit. The dawn atop the highest peaks in the world, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, AmaDablam, Thamserku, Kangtega, KusumKanguru, Changtse, Everest base camp, and Khumbu Icefall, is breathtaking from this place.

You might be able to touch Mount Pumori and see Mount Everest up close from this vantage point. The fantasy has finally come true, and the descent will start after returning to Gorakshep for breakfast. For an overnight stay, you'll again trek back to Lobuche from the same route. The journey gives you the chance to view the surroundings from a completely different viewpoint as you bid farewell to the high heights and return to the settlement.

Trip Reviews (2)

I was so surprised to be in Nepal, very friendly people, where everything was normal and peaceful life. Joining Three High Passes Trekking was just great and marvelous. An adventure worth experiencing facing the outmost views of the world’s highest peaks along with the beautiful local culture of Sherpa. 
The trek was quite hard and challenging sometimes, but the expert guide of Team Himalaya made the journey easier and worth the trek.

The Three High Passes involve Kongma-La, Cho-La, and Renjo-La with the visit to the Everest base camp trek. Truly a tough adventure but possible with the great guide and staff of Team Himalaya.

It was a wonderful and best way to experience all of the high scenic Khumbu region from east to west. Although it was quite tough and strenuous on some areas of climb and long descent. I found the Cho-La pass was quite tough compared to the other two high passes of Kongma and Renjo-La. But at the end completing each pass makes you feel in high spirits and energetic. 
The views from all high passes were breathtaking and unimaginable, I would recommend to hardy trekkers to join on this adventure. It is well worth the hard effort of much climb and long tiring descent.  We are grateful to Team Himalaya for this wonderful, enjoyable adventure Everest Three High Passes Treks.
