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.
