This 3 passes trek, in the Khumbu region of Nepal, is an ultimate mountain journey exclusively designed for adventure trekkers seeking the highest level of thrill and challenge. This trail offers a wonderful opportunity for trekkers to experience the demanding high passes of the Everest region, namely Renjo La (5,360m), Cho-la (5,420m) and Kongma La (5,535m) en route to the base camp of the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest (8,848m/29,021ft). Kongma La, discovered by Sherpas, is the highest and hardest pass, among all three passes while Renjo La is the smallest.
Along with the magnificent views of four of the world’s eight highest peaks; Cho Oyu (8,201m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516m) and Mt. Everest (8848m), you will also encounter Gokyo Ri, Kala Patthar and the Everest base camp - 3 other big highlights of this trip.
This trek isn’t just about the mountain sceneries but is also about the most popular Sherpa people (their picturesque villages, rich culture, a variety of traditions, colorful festivals, pure religion, and exceptional lifestyle) residing in the lap of the Himalayas. The trail also offers extinct species of plants, animals and birds.
Overall, this trek can be taken as a great fusion of fantastic scenery, challenging trek, off-the-beaten tracks and exclusive Sherpa cultures.
