Everest High Three Passes Trek is suitable for physically fit adventure seekers. You will be passing by Thame village, the birth place of the famous mountaineer Mr. Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, the first man who summited Mount Everest together with Sir Edmund Hillary on 29th May 1953.

During Everest High Three Passes Trekking you will be crossing the following 3 passes: Renjo-la (5340mt), Cho-la (5420mt) and Kongma-la (5210mt). Of these 3 passes all presents a very challenging day while Kongma La is probably the hardest pass to cross (but rest assured, it will be safe) and you will also hike up to three famous viewpoints, namely Gokyo-ri (5360mt), Kalapattar (5560mt) and Chhukung-ri (5560mt).

Highlight of this tour is the walk to Everest Base Camp at 5380mt from where you also have a great chance to explore the long Khumbu Glacier, where mountaineers are camping, waiting for the right conditions to make their summit attempt for Mount Everest. Sherpa culture, bio-diversity of flora and fauna including mountain chicken, Danfe, Himalayan monal, rhododendron flowers, blue sheep, musk deer, medicinal plants, beautiful lakes and rivers are other highlights of this tour.

The Everest Base Camp 3 Passes trek, is secluded. Often, you will not be trotting the same trails as all the trekkers going straight to Everest Base Camp.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
