The Everest Three Pass trek combines the three high passes of the Everest Region into one unforgettable adventure. This trek begins early in the morning with a flight from Kathmandu to the mountain airstrip at Lukla followed by a three hour walk to Phakding. Over the next three weeks you will continue north up to Dudh Kosi Valley to Namche Bazaar and on toward the Everest high passes of Khongma-la Pass, Cho-la Pass and Renjo-la Pass.
The Everest Three Passes trek is one of the most iconic, challenging treks in Nepal. Three massifs combine to make the most spectacular displays of high passes in one of the most scenically stunning areas of Everest region. The trek takes you through the remote Bhote Kosi valley and many friendly Sherpa villages. The Everest High Pass trek provides fantastic views of well-known 7,000m to 8,848m peaks and takes you to regions with very few Western trekkers. It is within our grasp to achieve the superb classic objectives of ascending the summits of Kala Patthar for unrivalled views of Mount Everest, and Gokyo Ri, offering panoramic views of Cho Oyu, Everest, Makalu, Cholatse and many more Himalayan giants. This is really the ultimate high-altitude trek and one of the world’s most exclusive mountain journeys to undertake in your lifetime.
