The Everest Three Passes Trekking is considered the most adventurous excursion in the Everest region, perhaps in all of Nepal. The passes include Kongma La (5,555m), Cho La (5,330m) and Renjo La (5,360m). It's a challenging, technical and demanding trip, but the snowy mountains, glaciers, lakes and abundant Sherpa culture make it all worthwhile. Nepal Hiking Trek has the expertise and experience to arrange and support your adventure. We provide a fully equipped medical kit and oxygen, warm drinks, excellent assistance and all other necessities of the trip.

The Everest Three Passes Trekking Starting from the Lukla airport, the trek goes through the important Sherpa settlements of Jorsale and Namche Bazaar, where you can appreciate the mountain Tibetan Buddhist culture with their monasteries and gompas. Then we explore Khumjung village and walk further to Chhukung and cross the Kongma La Pass, the highest of the three passes. From there we reach Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. Next, we cross the Cho La Pass, which is regarded as the most technical to cross, and from there we are rewarded with the spectacular beauty of Gokyo Valley and its stunning glacial lakes. Hiking up Gokyo Ri provides incredible views of Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,481m), Lhotse Shar(8,385m) Cho Oyu (8,201m), and the glacier lakes.

One the way Everest Three Passes Trekking Crossing the Renjo La Pass is yet another challenge before we trek down to Lukla via Jorsale. The best time for this trek is during the fall and spring. We recommend that you include some extra days on your trip because flights out of Lukla can experience long delays and cancellations, even for cloud cover. For any queries, please feel free to contact us.
