Breathtaking Everest Base Camp and 3 High Passes trek
5 - Excellent
  • Marcel Sowiak
“We had a wonderful trek to the Everest Base Camp and 3 passes. Kris organized everything professionally and perfectly, all accommodation and domestic flights were booked and included into the trip price. Our guide - Lakpa gave us a breathtaking tour in the Everest region, providing us with interesting information during the trek and serving professional help and advice. I really recommend traveling with this tour operator.”
16 Day - Three Passes Trek (Guide: Sanchaman Rai)
5 - Excellent
  • Hilke Schliwen
“We can highly recommend doing this Trek. It is a tough hiking trek (since you will be at very high altitudes for multiple days in a row) but the views make up for it - the landscape is stunning. Our Guide (Sanchaman Rai) explained a lot and did his best so that we felt always safe and secure. When we could not finish the first pass (Kongma La) - Sanchaman adjusted our plan so that we could do the other two passes, even though we lost a day. All in all it was a great trek with a great tour agency. (Hint: If you think about doing the Trek in less than 16Days - it may be possible, but make sure that you acclimatize correctly otherwise you will not enjoy the experience :-). In our opinion 16 Days is the perfekt amount of time).”
3 Passes trek with nice views, good weather and good agency
5 - Excellent
  • Jonas Beck
“We had a really nice time on our three passes Trek. I would definitely recommend doing the three passes over the normal Everest base camp trip as views are much nicer and you see more of the Everest region. Just don't rush the trip too much as you really need the time for acclimatization. Making the trip longer is always the better option then shorter and we have seen quite some people who had big issues with altitude sickness because they went up too fast. There are several peaks you can add additional to the three passes if you have enough time what I would recommend as well. Be careful with the guide you get, at the end it is your trip so he should really adapt to your wishes. Here you have to be strict that the guide is following your wishes and not you his.”

Everest Base Camp 3 Passes Trek - Overview

Lukla Airport - the starting point of the EBC 3 Passes trek
Aerial view of Namche Bazaar Village - the capital of the Everest region
Trekkers crossing the Renjo La Pass
Buddhist monastery in the village of Tyanboche

The trek follows the lower Khumbu trail towards Everest Base Camp crossing over the three passes making this a comprehensive circuit of the Everest region. Though strenuous trekking at times, you are rewarded with remarkable Himalayan scenery including four of the world's eight highest peaks; Cho Oyu (8,201 m), Makalu (8,463 m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Everest (8,850 m). You also get to see the beautiful village of Gokyo and its emerald lakes.

This is all complemented by inviting Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering an insight into the quiet and culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life. You have the opportunity to visit ‘off the tourist trail’ tracks if you choose, and you can experience more remote villages and mountainous areas.

Everest Base Camp - 3 Passes - Safety considerations

All trekking agencies available at Bookmundi.com take safety seriously and are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback. They will therefore go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting. However, please note the following particulars for the Everest Base Camp – 3 Passes trek:

  • This is a high altitude trek and therefore careful acclimatization is needed. Ensure acclimatization days are taken during the trek to avoid altitude sickness.
  • Please make sure that you are well prepared for the climate for that part of the season. Near EBC, temperatures can drop to as low as -20°C / -4°F during late autumn and early spring. The temperature dip even further down during winters.
