Among many trekking routes in Everest region, Everest Three High Pass Trek is for adventure savvy trekkers. For its acute remoteness and demanding high altitude passes, Everest three pass trek calls proper fitness with previous alpine experience.
Everest Three High Pass Trek includes crossing of three 5,000m+ passes – Renjo la Pass (5,465m), Cho La Pass (5,420m) and Kongma La Pass (5,535m). Sometimes trekkers even have to walk for 9 hours and make strenuous climb, so high fitness is mandatory. The trek features almost every highlights of Khumbu region: from glacial Gokyo Lake to Largest Nzogumpa Glacier to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar.
The view from Renjo La Pass (5,464m) leaves you spell bound. In fact, it even beats the grandeur of Kalapatthar. Add to this – the view of Gokyo Lake is something that will last forever in your memory.
Likewise, Cho la Pass at 5,420m is majestically nestled in between the Lobuche (6,135m) and Cholatse (6,443m). Imagine being so close to these ice giants. Little far, you will witness Ama Dablam at its best.
Kongma La Pass at 5,535m is not easy task to conquer. Trekkers have to negotiate the number of glaciers, glacier-fed streams and struggle on ice and snows to climb the highest point of the trip (5,535m). The view of Lhotse, Makalu, Everest and collection of other peaks will compensate the effort.
Apart from three high passes, trekkers will conquer Kalapatthar, Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Ri (the most visited part of Khumbu). Also you will explore the Tengboche Monastery (the largest monastery of Khumbu), admire the beauty of Gokyo Lake (the highest freshwater system in Nepal) and experience the enticing Sherpa Culture.
