EVEREST THREE HIGH PASS TREK 22 DAYS

This 22 day trek that will take you into the heart of the Himalayan Mountains, to alpine glaciers and give you a chance to see snow leopards, musk deer, red panda, and other indigenous species in the World Heritage Listed Sagamartha National Park. This has been one of the most popular trekking destinations for climbers and trekkers since Mt. Everest was first climbed by Sir Edmund Hilary & Norgay Tensing in 1953. 

The Everest High Three Pass trek will take you to high altitudes and includes crossing Renjo La Pass (5360m), Cho-La Pass (5420m) and Kongma-La Pass (5535m). You will also have some incredible views of Mt. Gokyo Ri (5,360m), and climb Mt. Kala Patthar (5,545m) for its fantastic views of Everest and visit Everest Base Camp (5,364m). The amazing landscape and splendid views during the trek are astonishing. Personal fitness is critical on this trek due to trekking at higher altitudes. It is recommended that you prepare yourself physically prior to joining this trek. This is a exceptional opportunity to look to the heavens at four towering 8,000 meter plus peaks; Mt. Cho Oyu (8,201m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m) and Mt. Everest (8,848m). This trek also leads us to the isolated valley of Nangpa La and to the Sherpa villages of Thame and Marlung.           

It is a physically hard climb to Dingboche (4410m), Kongma La Pass (5535m) via Tengboche (3860m) and Kongma La Pass (5550m). The views from these places will be implanted in your memory for the rest of your life. Kongma La Pass is the highest pass of the three passes on this trek. From Dingboche we head higher and after we cross Khongma La Pass via High Camp we come to Lobuche (4910 m) and then to Gorekshep (5140m). Gorekshep is a cross-road where the trail leads to Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp. For some of the very best views anywhere in Nepal of Mt. Everest we trek to the celebrated vantage point at Kala Pathar (5644m) – also referred to as ‘black rock”. It is mostly down-hill from here as we follow the trail back to Gorekshep and then down to Everest Base Camp (5360m) via Gorak Shep (5164m). At EBC we can see the Khumbu Glacier, the world’s highest glacier that you pass on your way to Mt. Everest.                 

From EBC we descend to Lobuche and then on to Cho La Pass (5420m), the most challenging of the three passes that begins near Lobuche Kharka and heads through to Thangnak. On the trek to Thangnak Kharka via Dzongla (4830m) we can see Awi Peak (5245m), Lobuche Peak, Nirekha Peak and other snow covered mountains. After taking in the magnificent views of these mountains - in the vicinity of Everest, we continue on to Gokyo through the Gokyo Valley and past its many lakes from where we then climb to Gokyo Ri (5420m) - considered as the best viewpoint in the entire Himalayas. Leaving Gokyo Ri we head to High Camp via the Renjo La Pass 5360m. As with Gokyo Ri, the Renjo La Pass offers us similarly great views of the Himalayan Ranges. After leaving High Camp we descend to Thame via Lungden (4380m) and Marlung (4210m). Continuing downhill we follow the trail to Lukla via Namche Bazaar completing the round-trip trek through the three passes. 

Sherpa Expedition & Trekking (Est.1977) have an excellent reputation for taking good care of their clients. We will take care of all permits, meals and accommodation on the trek.

ITINERARY

Expand All

A representative from Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will greet you at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel in Thamel, a bustling and thriving tourist hub of Kathmandu. On arrival at your hotel there will be a briefing regarding your Everest Three Passes trek and our representative will provide you useful information. No meals included today.

After breakfast at your hotel, we will head off around the city to take in the sights, including many historically significant temples and heritage-listed sights. Your guide will pick you up in a vehicle.

This morning we head to the airport for a 35 minute flight to Lukla where we land on a narrow tarmac overlooking the Dudh Koshi River. The trek takes us through farming lands of the Sherpas and passes through several villages along the trail. Many Sherpas make their living solely from providing support to trekkers and climbers. We will also pass by many Mani stones, which are stones carved in Tibetan script, and of course the ever-present Tibetan prayer flags along the trail. We will then come to our lodge on the banks of the Dudh Koshi River.

Today we cross the Dudh Koshi River and later we have to show our trekking permit at the Sagarmatha National Park office in Monju - the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. We then ascend to Namche Bazaar crossing the Hillary Suspension Bridge. We will stay in Namche Bazaar at a teahouse overnight.

Before climbing to higher altitudes we will have to acclimatize. Health experts strongly recommend we stay active and on the move during the day. Today we can choose between taking a hike to Thame or visit Khunde, or relax and explore Namche Bazaar – the home to many Sherpas employed in the trekking business. Namche Bazaar is the main center of the Everest (Khumbu) region and has government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and a vibrant market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we decide to take a more vertical trek during the day it will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guide will also take us to the Tourist Visitor Center close to the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can see a variety of artifacts linked to the first Everest climbers, learn about the Sherpa culture and flora and fauna of the Everest region.

On the trail to Tengboche we have some fantastic views of Mt. Everest, Mt. Nuptse, Mt Ama Dablam, and Thamserku. The trail zigzags through the hills until we come to Tengboche where we will stay overnight at a teahouse.

On the trail today we pass numerous Chortens and Mani walls and several small villages. We will stop for lunch at a village that has made a name for itself serving delicious food. In the afternoon we head north to Pheriche or instead can follow an eastward trail beneath the towering north face of Mt Ama Dablam. The trail is fairly easy-going as we enter the Imja Valley that slowly opens up as we get nearer to the Lobuche River. We will then head down to the river and then have a steep ascent heading up to Dingboche. Dingboche is unusual in that its fields are surrounded by stone walls, protecting them from grazing animals and strong winds, with crops of barley, buckwheat, and potatoes.

Today is another important day on the trek devoted to helping us acclimatize before heading to higher altitudes. A short trek to the Nagarjuna Hills offers some wonderful views of Mt. Makalu and will also help us to better acclimatize. Medical experts recommend being active rather than sitting idle during this process.

From Dingboche, it is only a short way to Chhukung, the last settlement of the Khumbu region around Imja Tse (also known as Island Peak), with its magnificent panoramic views of snow-covered mountains and with Mt. Makalu in the east. After arriving at Chhukung we can rest or trek to Chhukung Ri for more amazing views of the mountains. It will also allow us time to be better prepared for our early morning departure to Kongma La Pass.

Before dawn we follow the trail along an icy and rocky trail beneath Kongma La Pass and Kongma Peak– also known as Mera Peak. We then cross Kongma La Pass at (5,535m) that sits wedged between Mt Nuptse Wall, Mohare and Pokalde peaks. After a tough climb towards Khumbu Glacier and moraine (rocky ground) we then arrive at Lobuche where we will stay overnight.

Today we head from Gorakshep and cross the moraine of the Khumbu Glacier. A little further along the trail we can see the crest of the north ridge of Everest, as well as Mt. Pumori, Mt. Mahalangur, Mt. Lingtren, Mt. Khumbutse & Mt. Nuptse. A short climb takes us to Thangma Riju from where we have 360 degree panoramic views of the snow capped mountains. After a steep ascent, and crossing the Changri Glacier, we get our first our first look at Kala Patthar, a rocky black knoll below Mt. Pumori. After reaching Gorakshep we have some fantastic panoramic views of the surrounding snow covered peaks, including Mt. Everest. Upon reaching Mount Everest Base Camp we have time to explore and contemplate how the early mountaineers felt when planning their climb to the summit. From EBC we head back to Gorakshep for the night.

An early morning start takes us to Kala Patthar (known as black rock), a famous landmark in the region that offers the most superb panoramic view of numerous surrounding peaks - including a close-up of Mt. Everest. We then head back to Gorakshep and to Lobuche for the night.

Today we head out from Lobuche and down to Dzongla. After that we trek up to where we can see the nearby Chola Tsho Lake. We continue to trek by crossing the Chola Khola over a bridge before reaching Dzongla. We will stay at Dzongla at guest house for the night.

Today is physically the hardest day of our trek as we ascend to Cho La Pass (5420m). On reaching the highest point of the valley we trek through Cho La Pass taking in some of the most gorgeous views of Chola Lake and Mt. Amadablam. The climbing today can be quite hard going due to it being rugged and with rocks glazed over with ice. Upon reaching the top of the pass we then ascend to Gokyo for the night.

This morning we ascend to Gokyo Ri and have some incredible panoramic views of some of the world’s highest peaks that include: Mt. Cho Oyo, Gychung Kang, Mt. Everest, Mt. Lhotse, Cholatse, Tawache and Mt. Makalu in the east. This is definitely one of the highlights of this trek. We will then descend to Gokyo Lake. Another option is a trek to Gokyo’s 5th lake that will take around 5 hours and will take us to the base of Mt. Cho Oyu - the world’s 6th highest mountain situated close to the border with Tibet. From here we will also have views of Mt. Everest, Changtse and the enormous glacier of Cho-Oyu.

We arise before dawn again and head off to our final high pass following the trail at the end of Gokyo Lake from where we are again able to see several enormous snow covered peaks: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Cholatse and Taboche before crossing through Renjo La Pass. This is also one of the most physically demanding days of our trek, but once we get to the top of the pass we will have magnificent 360 degree views of Mt. Cho-Oyu and other snow covered peaks. After a short rest period we continue to the frozen lakes below Renjo La Pass before heading on a long descent to the small village of Lundgren – close to Nangpa La Pass where we will stay at a teahouse overnight.

This morning we head along a trail that has been used for centuries by the Tibetan traders heading to Thame Village. We first pass Bhote Koshi and then arrive at Taranga Village. At Thame we have some more stunning views of Mt. Thamserku, Mt. Katanga and Mt. Kusum Kanguru. We then cross the suspension bridge before arriving at Samde where we head down a steep trail to Thame Village which is home to a Khari Gompa (Buddhist monastery) for nuns.

This morning we leave the Sherpa village of Thame that is far less crowded than other routes to Everest. Thame is also home to Apa Sherpa who has climbed to the summit of Everest 21 times. Today the trail is peaceful and will give you a feeling of being secluded from the normal hustle and bustle of daily life. The trail is mostly downhill all the way to Namche Bazaar. Tonight we will stay at a guest house here.

Today is our last day on the trail of the Everest three high pass trek. Today we leave Namche Bazaar and head to Lukla via Phakding. Despite it all being downhill it is hard on the legs. Tonight we will stay at a teahouse in Lukla.

Soon after breakfast, we head back to Kathmandu after our long and exhausting mountain adventure. After arriving at Kathmandu we will take you to your 3-star hotels in Thamel where you can put your feet up and relax. If you are looking to extend your trip, there are several options, such as a visit to Chitwan National Park, known for wildlife viewing and to Pokhara – Nepal’s second-largest city and is famous for its beautiful lake – Phew Tal.

After and exhausting climbing and trekking adventure today will be a rest day. You can wander around Thamel and do some last minute shopping for souvenirs or maybe visit the Garden of Dreams to relax. This spare day is necessary in the event our flight from Lukla was delayed due to bad weather. You will stay the night at a 3 star hotel.

Your trekking adventure and time in Nepal comes to an end today. A representative from Sherpa Expedition and Trekking will drop you at the airport at least three hours prior to your scheduled departure.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodating in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu. During the trek teahouses/lodges are readily available. Due to excellent infrastructure, the teahouse of this trek is relative of high quality but at the higher elevation or up ahead from the Namche, you will not be able to find a standard accommodation, the rooms are basic normally with a bed, blankets and a pillow.

Meals and Drinks during the trek

Breakfast will be served in Kathmandu and all meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) are included during your trek in the Himalayas. The teahouses of this trek are quite standard and serve you authentic Nepalese food and International cuisines too (Tibetan, Indian, Continental, etc.). Please carry water purifying pills as you get to have stream water also note that you have an option of buying bottled water.

Physical Fitness and Difficulty Level

The Three Passes Trek is highly rated as a challenging trek than the classic Everest Base Camp Trek so this trek is suitable for trekkers who have had past experience of trekking, this does not mean you need to be an athlete’s or marathon runner. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it. This may sound difficult to the first time trekkers, who are concerned that they won’t keep up; all you need to do is walking, jogging, cycling, and hiking near the valley before embarking.

Altitude Sickness

Trekking in the higher elevation is physically demanding than trekking in the lower elevation. Going up at higher elevation too fast causes altitude sickness, it generally happens when your body fails to adapt to the decreasing amount of oxygen available on high altitude as we ascend higher above 2500m.

Prevention of Altitude Sickness

  • Allow your body to have sufficient time for acclimatization.
  • Do not travel alone, take a guide or travel with a group of people.
  • Say no to alcohol, sleeping pills, and smoking.
  • At least drink 3 to 4 liters of clean water a day.
  • Do not make rapid ascend.
  • Avoid getting cold.

FAQS

The level is more difficult than other trekking programmers. However, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking tries its best to make the journey as easy, adventurous and joyful as possible.

Our itinerary has been specially tailored to prevent any kind of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while moving up to higher altitudes. Normally, altitude sickness starts from 3,600 meters and above. You will be trekking at a relatively slow and gradual pace as part of the acclimatization process. Cut off caffeinated, alcoholic and smoking items. Drink at least 4 liters of water a day. Trek slow. Don't skip the acclimatization days. Better to continue with Diamox (if any symptoms show up). Drink Garlic Soup. In the higher elevation, there is less oxygen in the air and this is more so while crossing high passes. Our expert guides will advise you on how to avoid AMS and treat it when/ if required.

Embarking on the trek in November was an adventure that exceeded all expectations. The weather was on our side, providing us with clear skies and breathtaking views. However, the real challenge came with the ascent of Cho La Pass. This section proved to be difficult, but with the unwavering support and guidance of my Sherpa Guide, I was able to conquer it. His kindness and assistance every step of the way were truly commendable. This trek is highly recommended for those seeking awe-inspiring views and the opportunity to push their limits with the support of a knowledgeable guide.
