Everest Three High Pass Trek

Overview And Highlights

Everest Three High Pass Trek is for adventure-savvy trekkers among many Everest region trekking routes. For its acute remoteness and demanding high-altitude passes, the Everest three-pass trek calls for proper fitness with previous alpine experience.

Everest Three High Pass Trek includes the 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 climbs, so high fitness is mandatory. The trek features almost every highlight of the Khumbu region: from glacial Gokyo Lake to the Largest Nzogumpa Glacier to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar.

The view from Renjo La Pass (5,464m) leaves you spellbound. It even beats the grandeur of Kalapatthar. Add to this – the view of Gokyo Lake will last forever in your memory. Likewise, Cho la Pass at 5,420m is majestically nestled 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 an easy task to conquer. Trekkers have to negotiate the number of glaciers, and glacier-fed streams and struggle on ice and snow to climb the highest point of the trip (5,535m). The view of Lhotse, Makalu, Everest, and the collection of other peaks will compensate for 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.

In Short, Everest Three High Pass Trek is an adventurous journey; perfect for those seeking to push their limits and explore the intact beauty of Everest.

Best Time for Everest Three High Pass Trek

We have the two best sessions in Nepal for Trekking and Tours like autumn and spring sessions which are described in detail below.

Autumn Session (September, October, November)

Autumn is the best season for trekking anywhere in Nepal from west to east and north to South because the autumn session has clear visibility with Magnificent Views.

If we Trek the Everest Three High Pass during the autumn session the temperature will be neither too hot nor too cold, and not be so much snow in the high passes, that is the reason more people climb in the autumn session.

Spring Session (March, April and May)

Compared to the autumn session with Spring Session is also the best trekking session in Nepal. At that time most of the vegetation was green and most of the flowers were booming, which made it different.

The temperature will not be so cold or not so hot, the mountain weather will be great with the best visibility, and you may see far away magnificent views of the Himalayas, when you do the Everest Three High Pass Trek in Spring Session, you will see scenic mountain views.
