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.

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 (8,201m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516 m), Everest (8,850m). 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.

    “Just returned to Thailand after a beautiful trekking in Nepal with Himalayan Leisure. The company arranged everything from starting to the end. Both me and my GF had amazing experience during the trek even though it was tougher than our expectations. We enjoyed traveling with Himalayan Leisure as well as the route, people, villages, mountains and Himalayan passes. It was truly a lifetime experience while in Nepal.”

    “I recently completed my three passes trek and Upendra from Himalayan Leisure Inc. helped me planning all my day to day activity. I am very happy to say Himalayan Leisure Inc. done an excellent job and fulfilled all they promised. Upendra planned everything for me; booked my hotel in Kathmandu , obtained the necessary permit, booked early morning Lukla flight, and arranged all the transfers. Upendra also arranged an English speaking porter/guide (Nara Kubir) who joined me at Lukla airport. I am very pleased to say Nara Kubir was very good and was really very helpful throughout my trekking days up until my departure from Lukla. I must admit all the planning done by Upendra was spot on and I would recommend to others. The three passes trek is something special and until you have completed this trek you wouldn’t know how good it is. I would strongly recommend this trek via “East to West” route which allows better acclimatisation and slightly easier trekking route. This trekking involves three very high passes (Kongma La, Chola, Renjo La) as well as Everest Base camp region including Kalapatthar in Gorekshep and not forgetting the beauty of Gokyo. Three Passes Trek is physically demanding and one has to be in good shape to enjoy the whole experience.”

    “Green Valley hooked me up with a great guide, with whom I had the pleasure to do the Three Passes trek for 17 days. We ended up doing it a little bit faster, this is the benefit if you can decide upon the itinerary day to day. The guide was knowledgable, warm, funny, proficient in English and just allround helpful and supportive. As for the trek, well I can let the pictures you can find on internet speak for itself. If you are fit enough I cannot recommend this highly enough over 'just' Basecamp; the passes really stand on their own in terms of experience.”

    “The three passes Everest trek is a great way of getting to know the different valleys around the Everest area: Khumbu, Chhukung, Thame... The scenery is outstanding and the trek is physically demanding enough for those who want a bit of a challenge.”

    “My boyfriend and I booked the 17 day 3 high passes and Everest Base Camp Trek with Green Valley Tours. I booked with Green Valley as the price was very good but also the owner Raj, was excellent at getting back to me to answer any questions I had before making the booking. This level of service continued in the run up to our arrival in Nepal and it was great to know that Raj was at the end of an email or whatsapp message for any questions we had. As part of the trek Green Valley also picked us up from the airport in Kathmandu and took us to our hostel. This is a vital service as Kathmandu airport is crazy busy. We had a few days in Thamel before our trek and Raj was always on hand to help, answer questions and give us recommendations for additional equipment to buy and how much it should cost. The trek itself was breath taking (and HARD). The porters were absolutely brilliant and great fun to play cards with in the evening. Our guide did a good job and had a good sense of humour. Unfortunately though after 9 days I got very sick and our trek was cut short but I did manage to trek the highest pass and made it to EBC. (TRAVELLER TIP: as soon as you start to feel unwell be sure to tell your guide you need a rest day. I didn’t do this and just kept pushing myself each day and in the end made myself very ill.) If like me you do fall ill then the aftercare I received from Green Valley and Raj was outstanding. Raj was already at the hospital when I arrived to make sure I was okay and he visited everyday. When I was due to leave hospital he came to pick me and my boyfriend up and take us to our hotel. Once I had recovered, as our trek had been cut short, he also helped to arrange the bus so we could visit another part of Nepal. On return to Kathmandu, Raj had followed up at the hospital for me and collected all the paperwork. If all that wasn’t enough, he also arranged an evening meal with the rest of the trekking group when they returned from the trek so we could catch up with them and say our farewells…..AND took us back to the airport when it was time to leave. The care and consideration shown by Raj and Green Valley really was more than I could have asked for, Raj did a brilliant job when was I ill and he continued the service until I left Nepal . I would happily use them again for any treks or tour in Nepal and can’t thank Raj enough for the amazing after he provided.”

    “I decided to travel with Himalayan Leisure after exchanging emails with many other agencies as well and everything went well as per the expectation. The high passes trekking from starting to the end was amazing and loved the adventures up there. The Himalayas, villages, routes, snow, ice, lakes and glaciers added fun to our 3 weeks long adventure in Nepal. I am sure that we wouldn't have made it without our guide Narkubir and the porter. I definitely had an amazing time in Nepal with Himalayan Leisure and I am happy to recommend them to other travelers heading to Nepal. I would love to be in Nepal some other time for another adventure probably in Mustang. Safe travel everyone!”
