Everest Three Passes Trek Details

Everest Three Passes Trek is one of the adventure trek in Nepal. The eastern Himalayan belt in Nepal, enveloped by the grandeur of the Everest mountains, hosts a plethora of more than 300 diverse peaks, varying in elevation. The landscape is adorned with Precambrian high-grade metamorphic rocks, reaching heights of up to 8848.86 meters above sea level. Following these rocky formations, one encounters semi-arid hills, through which the Dudh Koshi River gracefully winds through narrow gorges. The trail navigates through the highest passes, namely Renjo La Pass (5345 meters), Cho-La Pass (5420 meters), and Kongma-La Pass (5535 meters), constituting a circuit journey famously known as the Three Passes Trek in Nepal, encircling the lofty Everest highland.

Unlike the enduring Everest Base Camp trek, High passes trek distinguishes itself as a tough adventurous experience that traverses through 3 passes over 5000 meters. Be wary, this trek is not for the faint heart. The elevation of Everest Three Passes Trek reaches the soaring height of 5535 meters at Kongma La Pass and 5555 meters at Kala Patthar peak. The sheer elevation mark reaching beyond 5000 meters mark makes it a challenging yet rewarding trek in Everest region.

The journey that takes you to these passes whisks together natural amusements, geographical wonders, towering peaks, biodiversity, cultural distinctions and a holistic experience. The lower section of Everest region that stretches from Lukla to Namche Bazaar is filled with tropical foliage. As you ascend further, with the change in geology, you will encounter a dry and barren landscape resembling semi-arid topography amidst high Himalayan mountains. There are over 300 Himalayan peaks that stand in series along the Everest region. Mt. Everest (8848m), Mt. Lhotse(8516m), Mt.Lhotse Sar(8383m), Mt. Ama Dablam (6812m), Mt. Nuptse(7861m), Mt. Khumbutse(6,665m) among others are popular mountains residing in Everest vista.

Standing tall at 5535 meters above the sea level, this pass sits in between Chukkung and Lobuche in the far eastern reach of Everest region. The western base of this pass is cut off by Khumbu glacier right before you reach Lobuche. It is considered one of the challenging passes located in Nepal.

In between the route of Everest base camp and Gokyo valley sits another pass by the name of Cho La Pass. (5420m). This is one of the Three passes in Everest Region, which you will traverse secondly (first being Kongma La Pass). Cho La Pass is technically daunting and strenuous. As you hike up from Dzongla, you will encounter a steeply inclined section which takes you to the top of the pass. The western base of Cho La Pass is settled by Ngo Zumba Glacier and Gokyo Lakes. The view that you will gaze at from the top of this pass is astounding.

This assemblage consists of six main lakes, with Lake Thonak being the largest and Gokyo Cho (Dudh Pokhari) serving as the primary one.

Edyta Everest 3 High Passes Trek

Poland, October 2023

I would like highly recommend Harka

I would like highly recommend Harka, as a great organiser of our trek. He managed fit to all our requirements (tiing, places we would like to see and hike during the trekking). Moreover, he took care of us even once our private staying in Kathmandu (transfers, checking if we are fine, helping to find a driver for additional sightseeing we wanted to have).

Last, but not least: we are sooo greatful to our great guide (Ramesh) during our trek and Depak (our porter). With this team, the trek was real pleasure and magnificent experiance. Ramesh was always taking care of our health and condition, trying to find best rooms in teahouses and best spots during aclimatization time. Once - due to health conditions - we were not able to finish the trek as planned - he was fully supportive to change the plan and adapt it to our capabilities.

Ramesh and Depak were the best team we could have during our trek (Everest base camp and Island Peak base camp with Depak was a great experience with a lot of fun!).

mad dogs and english men – Jiri – base camp – 3 passes

what can I say...

3 treks in one for a group of mates from across the world

Harka organized the trek we asked for, but he didn't tell us we were actually doing 3 treks in one

we did the Jirri to base camp trek adding 5 days to avoid flying into Lukla airport then the 3 "killer" passes as well

Jay was a legend and fantastic guide who we had when we did the Manaslu circuit so no problems there, Bickas was a great porter and again the language barrier was not an issue and we all got on fantastically

I can't fault Harka and his team as they look after you from the moment you arrive at the airport to dropping you off for your flights home

this is the 3rd time we have been trekking in Nepal, all treks with Harka and we will be back in a couple of years for more adventures

Harka has built a great family business and all the other trekkers we met that were using him had all done multiple treks with him, so that is how you determine a good business the return trade and yes we will be returning again

Go Harka and his team from Himalaya Trip.

Amazing company and people

In April we booked the Three High Passes trek to EBC with Himalaya Trip after glowing recommendations from one of our friends, and had one of the best trips of our lives thanks to our guide Jayandra, and The rest of Harka's team!

At all times we had complete confidence in them and have become great friends. They helped us buy gear upon arriving in Kathmandu, handled all the flights to Lukla and made sure at all times we were ok with altitude and energy etc.. Our guide Jay was awesome, and even when heavy snow met us on our descent from Gorak Shep, Jay and another guide Om from the same company were there helping us and all others on the mountain down the slippery tracks - great guys.

We were so happy with their tours we immediately booked another 5 day trek in the Annapurna region to Poon Hill a day after our EBC trek. There we had great food, saw the sunrise at Poon Hill and sat in natural hot springs next to a river in the rainforest with thunder and lightning overhead. An amazing experience and the best Dal Bhat!

Even after the earthquakes, the selflessness of the Nepalese and Himalaya Trip continued to amaze us. If you are interested in visiting Nepal and doing any treks, PLEASE contact Himalaya Trip and support these great people. Nepal is a beautiful country and these guys will help you have the best time!

Personalized Everest

A group of 4 of us traveled with Harka on a 15-day trek in the Everest region. Harka was very accommodating in letting us customize our trip based on the group's preferences. We went over 3 high passes, up 2 small mountains, to clear mountain lakes, and Everest base camp. We had a great adventure that I would highly recommend.

Three Passes Trek Info

Everest Three Passes Route

Everest Three Passes Trek route begins from Lukla and ascends to Namche Bazaar, a vibrant Sherpa settlement that unveils a world of its own. The trail then ascends through a semi-arid landscape, promising a thrilling journey on the Everest high passes trek. The initial challenge unfolds at Kongma-La Pass, standing tall at 5535 meters, with the ascent commencing from Chukkung. Prepare for a rigorous 5-hour climb, best initiated in the early morning. The adventure continues with a visit to Everest Base Camp, followed by a return to Gorakshep.

Next on the agenda is the ascent to the majestic Kalapathhar peak, reaching an impressive 5,555 meters, before progressing towards Dzongla. Chola Pass (5420m) emerges as a significant milestone on the trail between Dzongla and Thagnak. Continuing the journey, we trek to the pristine Gokyo Lake and conquer yet another pass, Renjo La Pass (5345m). The Everest Three Passes trek culminates with this traverse, leading the way back to Lukla. This thrilling adventure promises not only breathtaking landscapes but also a test of endurance, making it a memorable odyssey through the heart of the Everest region.

Difficulty of Everest Three Passes Trek

You might be wondering how difficult Everest 3 Passes Trek is. The difficulty of Everest Three Passes Trek is believed to be grueling and challenging. It is paramount to have prior high altitude himalayan trekking experience before embarking on this endeavor. The elevated landmass, remoteness of the area, duration of the trek and secluded location contributes for a challenging Everest 3 Passes Trek traverse. The difficulty level of any trek also depends upon the age, prior experience, fitness level and mental strength of the trekker. Anyone who is physically and mentally unstable might have difficulty to successfully complete the trek.

Additionally, someone who is a beginner to Himalayan trekking will also have a tough time making the traverse. It is recommended that you begin your fitness regimen at least a month prior to your travel dates to be in shape and comfortably complete the journey. That being said, we have had clients over the age of 60 who have successfully completed the trek of Everest Three Passes.

​Guides and Porters of Everest Three Passes Trek

Trekking guides and porters play a crucial role in ensuring a successful trekking adventure, and when you embark on the Everest High Passes Trek with Himalaya Trip, you can trust that your trekking guide is not only licensed and government registered but also possesses extensive experience in the Himalayas. We prioritize local guides who are intimately familiar with the area, providing you with invaluable insights about the surroundings and expertly navigating the trail.

Throughout your trek, dedicated porters will accompany you. Each porter is assigned to carry a maximum of 20-25 kilograms of baggage, serving two individuals at most. This ensures a more comfortable and enjoyable trekking experience for you. If you have specific language preferences for your guide, feel free to inquire with us, and we will make the necessary arrangements to accommodate your needs.

The Everest region is enclosed by Sagarmatha National Park which was established in 1976.

While the national park permit can be obtained in Lukla, Monjo, and Namche or in Kathmandu, securing the Khumbu permit can only be obtained at Lukla or Monjo. You will need to provide 2 passport sized photograph and a copy of your passport to obtain these permits.
Dealing with the various permits and paperwork can be daunting in an unfamiliar location. This is where Himalaya Trip comes into play – we are here to assist you in planning your entire trek, including obtaining all the necessary permits and managing the paperwork on your behalf.
