  • 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 you on this fantastic adventure, in a very safe, but adventurous manner!

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 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.

  • 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.
