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.

We kindly refer to the Itinerary tab for a detailed day-by-day program for this tour.

Amazing Gokyo Ri with Three Passes Trek
“I had the most amazing opportunity to do the Everest Three Passes with the Friends Adventure Team. Coming to Nepal as a solo female, I was a little hesitant trusting just any organization... but within seconds of my first communication I felt relieved and excited to start my trek into the Himalayas.
The experience was one of the most memorable of my lifetime...”

Great experience in the Himalayas
“We just arrived from an 18 days trek on the Himalayas, we went with Friends Adventure Team. We had a great experience in the country, especially during our trek in the Himalayas, it is, indeed, a hard trip, so is important to be confident about your guides. We loved Dhan, our guide, and Guanzhou and Madraj, who helped us with our luggage. A once in a life experience with unforgettable landscapes and people. Thanks' so much.”

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.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.
