HIGHLIGHTS
  • Crossing over the Three Adventure Passes (Cho La , Renjo La and Kongma la )
  • Impressive views of Khumbu Ice fall
  • Everest Base Camp, walking on the Khumbu glacier, Climbing Kala patthar
The Three High Passes Trek (Renjo La, Cho La and Kongma La) is a picturesque trek in the Nepalese Himalayas, weaving through the Everest region over three of the world's highest passes. The trek offers unparalleled mountain scenery with an opportunity to explore the Khumbu region and the Everest Himalayan range. The Three Passes trek offers not only views of several eight thousand meter peaks, but also offers views of many peaks in the seven thousand meter club: including the region’s most beautiful Ama Dablam, Pumori, Cholatse, Khumbutse, Khangtega, Nuptse and Lhotse. The Three Passes trek is well-worth the effort, because of the amazing views and unforgettable experience of crossing three high Himalayan passes. This itinerary is developed for trekkers who are looking for an adventurous and challenging mountain excursion.

On the Three Passes Trek you will observe the ancient culture of the Sherpa people. The trail passes through traditional villages where Buddhist monasteries, prayer wheels, and monuments abound. Sagarmatha National Park, home to a variety of wildlife including musk deer, blue sheep, Himalayan tahr, barking deer, blood pheasant, Tibetan snow-cock, crimson-horned pheasant, and domesticated yaks, is a highlight of the region. A major attraction of this trek is Everest Base Camp at an elevation of 5340 m. Other worthwhile attractions are Kalapathar 5545 m near Gorak Shep, and Gokyo Ri 5350 m near Gokyo for the most spectacular views of Everest.

In short, it's an adventure trek of a lifetime and we look really much forward to taking your on this fantastic adventure, in a very safe, but adventurous manner!

Green Valley is a gem, Raj is an amazing coordinator, and Bisho is a superb guide
“I chose Green Valley Treks when it came to booking my EBC + High passes trek in April 2021and boy am I glad I did that!! In summary, they have more than earned my highest recommendation.Raj, the coordinator, was incredibly accommodating from the beginning and closely worked with my schedule and ever-changing COVID guidelines to help book my trip. I only had 9 days off from work, and was comfortable with my training, but the shortest trip offered by any other tour operator was over 12 days. However, with Raj, he created an individualized itinerary for me and assigned me a fit guide/porter duo to set me up for success. He even personally picked me up from the airport and dropped me off after I completed my trek. My flight to Lukla got cancelled due to the poor weather, and Raj diligently worked with me to organize a Jeep to Phaphlu and a private helicopter to Lukla the very next morning due to my already annotated trip.My guide, Bisho, was enthusiastic, friendly, and was proficient in English. He did everything in his power to ensure I was able to accomplish my goal of completing the EBC+High pass trek in 8 days; and simultaneously, have an enjoyable and memorable trip. He ensured he pointed out all the notable peaks during our week of clear skies, as well as the history and significance of Sherpa culture and Buddhist traditions. Although I pre-medicated with Diamox, I felt some signs of altitude sickness one evening in Lobuche due to our lack of acclimatization days. On that evening, Bisho played cards with me, offered to give me a head massage, and sang a beautiful Nepalese song. He was up-beat, thoughtful, and calm throughout the tripif you have the option to choose a guide, I would strongly recommend you ask for Bisho as he will not disappoint!My porter, Jit, was similarly wonderful and ensured he kept up with our ambitious pace. He acted as an assistant guide and helped out with ordering meals and ensured that I was well-taken care of. In summary, Green Valley Treks is an absolute gem amongst the 100s of tour coordinators offering the EBC +/- high passes trek. They have earned my highest recommendation, and I would highly recommend them to my family and friends!”

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?

    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.

  • How far in advance do I need to book a private trip? Also, do the flights to Lukla fill up?

    The tour operator prefers to receive bookings for at least one month before the trip start date, which allows them time to book the Lukla flight and guesthouses. Yes, Lukla flights can get busy in the main season (March to May and Oct to Nov), so we recommend booking your trip in advance.

  • 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.
