Imagine yourself surrounded by snow-capped mountains, alpine glaciers & a chance to see snow leopards, musk deer & red panda.
The Sagamartha National Park has been one of the most popular destinations for climbers and trekkers since the first ascent by Sir Edmund Hilary & Norgay Tensing in 1953.
The Everest High Three Pass trek will take you to high altitudes and includes the crossing of the Renjo La pass (5360m), Cho-La pass (5420m), Kongma-La Pass,(5535m) as well as Mt. Gokyo Ri (5,360m), and Mt.Kalapathar (5,545m) and Everest Base Camp (5,364m). The absolutely incredible landscape and panoramic views during the trek are unbelievable. Personal fitness is essential due to the high altitudes. It is important that you do some preparation prior to attempting this trek. This is a unique opportunity to be humbled by four towering 8,000m plus peaks; Mt.Cho Oyu (8,201m), Mt. Makalu (8,463m), Mt. Lhotse (8,516 m) and Mt. Everest (8,848m). This trek introduces us to the isolated valley of Nangpa La, the Sherpa villages of Thame and Marlung.
It is a tough ascent to Dingboche (4410m), Kongma-La Pass (5535m) via Tengboche (3860 m) and Kongma-La pass (5550m). The views from these places will last a lifetime! Kongma-La Pass is the highest pass of these three passes. From Dingboche, we climb higher and after crossing Khongma-la via High Camp we reach Lobuche (4910 m) and then head to Gorekshep (5140m). Gorekshep is the cross-road where the trail leads to Kalapathar and Everest Base camp. For some of the most spectacular views of Everest we trek to the well-known vantage point at Kala Pathar (5644m) - commonly referred to as ‘black rock”. It is down-hill from here as we trek 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 and one that climbers have to pass through on their way to Everest.
From EBC we descend to Lobuche and then on to Cho-La pass (5420m), the most difficult of the three passes, starting near Lobuche Kharka through to Thangnak. On the trek to Thangnak Kharka via Dzonglha (4830m) we view Awi Peak (5245m), Lobuche Peak, Nirekha Peak and others. After absorbing the spectacular views of these mountains in the vicinity of Everest we carry on to Gokyo, taking us through the Gokyo Valley and its many lakes, after which we then ascend to Gokyo Ri (5420m) is considered as the best viewpoint in the entire Himalayas in the Everest region. After leaving Gokyo Ri we make our way to High Camp via the Renjo-La pass 5360 m. As with Gokyo Ri, the Renjo-La Pass offers us more spectacular views of the Himalayan Ranges. Leaving High Camp, we head back down to Thame via Lungdhen (4380m) and Murlung (4210 m). Heading further downhill we trek to Lukla via Namche Bazaar completing the round-trip through the 3 passes.
Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek as the bag pack for the hiking in Nepal and the gear play a vital role for the successful trip and we suggest you to have all the necessary gear for the trip and not to have unnecessary equipment/things that you will not be using for the trip and list of the gear you need for the trek are:
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend better to bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
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.
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.
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.
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.
