Overview of Everest Three Passes Trek

The Everest Three Passes Trek in the Khumbu region of Nepal offers one of the most enjoyable and genuinely extraordinary trekking experiences. With the first challenge, Everest Base Camp, the height of the three high passes is conquered: Renjo La, Cho La, Kongma La, and Kala Patthar.

Your vacation begins with a guided city tour of Kathmandu, the vibrant capital of Nepal. On the third day of the trip, a 30-35 minute flight to Lukla, an impressively new flight on a Twin Otter plane, and the start of your hike in the heart of Sherpa Land, the Everest 3 high pass trail continues along the train. To Namche, We will follow in the footsteps of famous mountaineers and walk from house to house through beautiful Nepalese villages with spectacular views of Mount Everest and many other peaks of the Khumbu. We will have time to visit the essential Sherpa villages and monasteries. You have the option to walk to the Ama Dablam base camp, which is off the beaten track and worth the walk for its rewarding sight.

The altitude and steep climbs make the trek to the three high passes of Everest one of the most demanding treks in the Everest region. However, the spectacular views make the hard journey worthwhile and the experience of natural and cultural beauty that the Khumbu region of Nepal takes your breath away. Highlights also include the view of many peaks that rise 8000m or more above sea level. You will see the beautiful Island Peak, a high summit for mountaineers, and some see this as the first step in mountaineering. The two glaciers Ngozumpa and Khumbu, with the other side view of the Gokyo valley with its beautiful lakes, make this a dream for photographers too.

Everest Three Passes Trek is also an opportunity to get to know friendly Sherpas, their picturesque settlements, their lifestyle, their culture, and their traditions. March-May and September-December are the best times to plan the Everest Three Passes walks, as you can also attend the Tengboche Mani Rimdhu Festival and Dance in October-November and the Dumje Festival (April). No prior knowledge is required; however, to complete the Everest 3 Peaks 3 Passes hike, good health, excellent endurance, a mental and physical determination is needed.

We intend to follow the daily schedule below, although there may be flexibility due to local conditions or other factors beyond our control. In this case, the trekking guide will do everything possible to resolve changes in the route to minimize its inconveniences.

After Breakfast, we leave Phakding and move slowly towards Monjo crossing a series of suspension bridges and small settlements. From Phakding, it takes approximately 2 or 3 hours to reach Monjo. Monjo is recognized as the gateway to the Sagarmatha National Park. Upon arrival at Sagarmatha National Park, team leaders care about the necessary paperwork for the national park while enjoying a hot drink and visiting local shops. Then we descend and pass a few more suspension bridges. When crossing these bridges, the path leads uphill to the Namche Bazaar, from where you have the first view of Mount Everest along with other peaks. It is a hard 2-hour walk. The night is spent in a guest house in Namche Bazaar.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.

Day 05:Acclimatization day walking through the Namche bazaar.

Today, on the third day of the trek, we participate in activities that help us adapt to the difference in altitude and the dilution of the air. Staying active is the best way to acclimatize. So we have a few options for this day, and both help you get used to the altitude. The first option is the longest road to the village of Thame at 3,800 m and back to Namche, which takes 7 to 8 hours. If you would like a shorter trip, then you can visit the Everest View Hotel near the village of Khumjung above Namche. We explore the monasteries and the lifestyle of the people in Namche.

Today’s hike continues to contour the slope with short, steep sections walk over ridges. There are spectacular views of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse, as well as the beautiful Ama Dablam (6,812m). Ama Dablam means “mother’s necklace,” the long ridges on either side like the arms of a mother protecting her child, and the glacier pendant, which is considered Dablam, the traditional double decoration with images of gods worn by Sherpa women. The magnificent Ama Dablam is one of the gorgeous mountains in the world. Passing various villages and tea houses, we crossed a tributary of the Dudh Kosi River on a suspension bridge at a place called Phunki Tenga before starting a steep climb for about two hours to the monastery. This part of the hike is covered with rhododendron and pine forests, so it is well shaded and should be quite cold. The backdrop of the Tengboche monastery is magical and a spectacular building. It is incredible that the temple was burned down just a few years ago and was rebuilt in large part. Night stay at Lodge in Tengboche.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The summit is almost 2,300 m high. The climbing route follows the southwest ridge, the horizon to the right, and advances three-quarters of the way to the face on the hanging glacier. The base camp offers particularly beautiful views of Kangtega (6,783m), Thamserku (6,618m), and Taboche (6,542m). Your hike may coincide with the primary climbing season, and it is more than likely that at Ama Dablam base camp, you will find climbing groups that acclimatize or set the route.

Essential Information

A single supplement is served upon request and costs an additional $ 500. We organize it with the attached bathrooms. In teahouses, however, there are only shared washing and toilet facilities in some places. Also note that single rooms in Kathmandu and hiking regions are readily available on the lower levels, but finding them on the upper levels can be difficult.

All meals, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner, are offered during the trek, while Breakfast is served in Kathmandu. During our walk, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food, as well as Tibetan, Indian, and more general continental cuisine. We have Breakfast and dinner in guest houses, where we spend the night and have lunch on the way.

Walking guide (s) and staff arrangements

The most important thing that makes our Everest three pass trek successful, entertaining, and unforgettable is the skillful, experienced, courteous, and helpful trekking guide and crew who can make our days in the mountains run smoothly. The best and most professional leaders lead our walk. All our company, trekking guides are carefully selected based on their experience, leadership, and personal skills. To preserve local communities, we only employ local people who have sufficient knowledge of the culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local regions.

Travel insurance

Travel insurance for each itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking vacations. At a minimum, you must have emergency and repatriation insurance that must include the cost of the mountain rescue. Please read the terms and conditions of your insurers carefully, especially make sure that the following are covered: 1) activity (i.e., tourism, trekking or mountaineering) 2) maximum altitude reached on trekking 3) evacuation of the helicopter in case of emergency. You must understand that the costs of the evacuation and return procedures are ultimately your responsibility and that it is your responsibility to bear all expenses related to evacuations or medical treatment. You must be fully aware of the effects of your travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that our company guide may, under certain circumstances, initiate helicopter rescue (or other necessary) operations in medical emergencies without first seeking approval from your insurance company.

Acclimatization

As we cover the high mountain passes on our walk, we must plan the itinerary considering acute mountain sickness (AMS). Raising altitude too quickly leads to illness that is severe enough to cause death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen is in the air, and it takes our body to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Therefore, three days were allowed for acclimatization. We will rest in Namche Bazaar, Chhukung, and Gokyo to get used to the altitude.

Physical fitness and experience requirements

Everest High Passes Trek is a challenging hike suitable for them who can walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light backpack. In a few days, we will even have to walk 8 to 9 hours. Walking at higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking at lower elevations. However, if you are in excellent health with reasonable fitness, self-confidence, positive attitude, and strong determination, You can complete the trek. Exercising and jogging regularly for a few months before traveling is a good idea, as it improves our strength and stability. Previous hiking experiences are preferred, but no technical knowledge is required. You must consult your doctor before booking this trip. Participants with existing diseases such as heart, lung, and blood diseases must inform us before booking.

Best travel time

As with most treks in the Himalayas, fall and spring are the best times to hike the Everest Base Camp High Passes. Low rainfall, pleasant temperatures, and less dramatic weather make these seasons more convenient for this hike. The days are warmer, while the nights and mornings are somewhat more relaxed in places at lower altitudes. It can be a bit extreme, but it is still bearable in higher areas.

However, if you want to walk in summer and winter, you should ask us about the weather conditions and expected weather conditions at this particular time. Additional preparations should be made against rain, snow, extreme cold, slippery roads, etc. for walking during the low season.

Frequently Asked Questions

How difficult is Everest three passes trekking?

The Everest three passes trek is rated “Challenging”. It is a severe adventure, given your high strides. It’s more challenging than Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes hikes, but not as challenging as trekking peaks like Island Peak and Mera Peak. The three passes trek is quite challenging because it traverses very high passes for 19 days. For this reason, we do not recommend trekking alone or without a guide who has extensive knowledge and experience of trekking in the area.
