The Everest Three High Passes Trek is one of the most challenging trek in the foothill of Himalayas. Here are 3 hard passes on the high elevations of Everest that go above the tree-lines; the Trip across the three passes will be a great chance to hike around the Everest high country areas. An outing in this zone will give you some of the most mind blowing views you will have ever imagined. You will have incredible scenes of a range of mountains from real close, including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Mt. Nuptse, Mt. Amadablam, Mt. Pumori, and Mt. Thamserku among other famous peaks. Similarly, you will get to pass through numerous glacier lakes.
Trekking across the 3 passes has much rocky and sloppy countryside trails, but the beautiful settlements of Sherpa ethnic groups, who are famous for their spirit in climbing majestic mountains, with their welcoming nature more than makes up for the tough hiking in this region. Explore Buddhist monasteries located in the Khumbu region, the species of birds, flora and fauna, as you will pass through lush jungle and finally you will reach the top of the high hills. The 3-pass trails also pass through some well-developed routes, where you will have numerous places to haul up for some well earned rest, even though the trek by itself is challenging.
Kongma La pass is somewhat a bit more difficult than the other passes. We enjoy a variety of experiences of the mountain views from Cho La, when we traverse the glaciated Cho La pass to Gokyo Lake. We explore the valley and hike up to Gokyo Ri to enjoy more excellent mountain views including another angle of Everest and many other well known mountains. The hike from Gokyo valley to Renjo La pass is also the most exciting among the 3 passes. When you reach the quiet beautiful village of Thame we take in its natural beauty and head towards Namche bazaar the next day.
The Everest Three High Passes route begins with a short scenic flight from Kathmandu to the tiny airstrip of Lukla. The trail follows the classic path along Phakding, continues along the Dudh Kosi Valley, Namche Bazaar, Chhukung, and Lobuche via Kongma La pass, Everest Base Camp, Cho La pass, Gokyo, Renjo La pass, Thame, Namche Bazaar, Monjo and straddles the Dudh Kosi River as you head back to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu.
