Everest Base Camp - 3 Passes trek Reviews

Based on 129 customer reviews
Green Valley is a gem, Raj is an amazing coordinator, and Bisho is a superb guide
5 - Excellent
  • Rohan
  • From India
“I chose Green Valley Treks when it came to booking my EBC + High passes trek in April 2021and boy am I glad I did that!! In summary, they have more than earned my highest recommendation.Raj, the coordinator, was incredibly accommodating from the beginning and closely worked with my schedule and ever-changing COVID guidelines to help book my trip. I only had 9 days off from work, and was comfortable with my training, but the shortest trip offered by any other tour operator was over 12 days. However, with Raj, he created an individualized itinerary for me and assigned me a fit guide/porter duo to set me up for success. He even personally picked me up from the airport and dropped me off after I completed my trek. My flight to Lukla got cancelled due to the poor weather, and Raj diligently worked with me to organize a Jeep to Phaphlu and a private helicopter to Lukla the very next morning due to my already annotated trip.My guide, Bisho, was enthusiastic, friendly, and was proficient in English. He did everything in his power to ensure I was able to accomplish my goal of completing the EBC+High pass trek in 8 days; and simultaneously, have an enjoyable and memorable trip. He ensured he pointed out all the notable peaks during our week of clear skies, as well as the history and significance of Sherpa culture and Buddhist traditions. Although I pre-medicated with Diamox, I felt some signs of altitude sickness one evening in Lobuche due to our lack of acclimatization days. On that evening, Bisho played cards with me, offered to give me a head massage, and sang a beautiful Nepalese song. He was up-beat, thoughtful, and calm throughout the tripif you have the option to choose a guide, I would strongly recommend you ask for Bisho as he will not disappoint!My porter, Jit, was similarly wonderful and ensured he kept up with our ambitious pace. He acted as an assistant guide and helped out with ordering meals and ensured that I was well-taken care of. In summary, Green Valley Treks is an absolute gem amongst the 100s of tour coordinators offering the EBC +/- high passes trek. They have earned my highest recommendation, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends!”
Amazing, tough but rewarding adventure

Everest Base Camp 3 Passes Trek - Overview

The Everest Base Camp - 3 Passes Trek is the ultimate trek in the Everest region. The trek takes you across three high mountain passes of Kongma La (5,540 m), Cho La (5,335 m) and Renjo La (5,400 m). The EBC - 3 Passes trek offers a fortnight of sheer mountain bliss only reserved for the truly adventurous.

Aerial view of Namche Bazaar Village - the capital of the Everest region

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.
