Everest Three High Passes Trek - 22 Days

Cross the 3 highest passes of the Everest region including major views, Gokyo Ri, Kalapathar, and Everest Base Camp, and trek with our full support team to experience passes above 5000 meters.

The Everest Three High Passes Trek is your forerunner for the big things to come. Based on our comfortable lodge, the Everest Three High Pass trek revolves around the alpine circuit of Dante Khumbu and crosses three powerful passes. Renzo La Pass, Cho La Pass, and Kongma La Pass connect the excellent valleys of the Thame, Gokyo, and Imja rivers. High passes, panoramic views, and glacial lakes are the main attractions of this Everest three-high pass trek. Experience the full picture of Mount Everest on the same itinerary without missing any key locations following proper compatibility and security backup.

Our journey to the three high passes begins with the settlement of Sherpas, the famous Khumbu Valley; we are ideally going to adapt before hitting the trails for two nights at the fun Namche market. From Namche, we take a detour to the Everest Base Camp and the main trek to the Thame Valley. We start this trek clockwise from Renzo La Pass and end at Kongma La Pass. This route will provide a good view of the mountains as we get closer to our destination.

From Renzo La Pass, we head to the esteemed Gokyo Lakes for 2 blissful nights and climb the Gokyo Re 5,357m. Gokyo Ri is a prime view offering panoramic views of the mountains. The next day we climbed Cho Lama in the snow 5,420m, before reaching the breathtaking Kalapathar for some heavenly views of the Everest base camp and the surrounding Everest landscapes.

Once we have worked here, we return to Lobuche and complete the final objective of our Everest Three High Pass trek, Kongma La Pass 5,535m. From Chukung, we head back and meet the beautiful villages of Dingboche and the famous Tengboche Monastery along the Everest Trails. In this circuit, when we go clockwise, we get wonderful opportunities to get used to the quiet trails in the valley of Bhote Koshi; enjoying the stunning views of the planet’s high mountains, glacier lakes, and magnificent valleys that make the whole venture worthwhile.

Since most of our trekking goes above 4000 meters, this trek will not be suitable for greenery but it will definitely be a great trek for those who are fit in the mountains and have trekked at high altitudes before. AlpineTrav Treks & Expeditions will be your one-stop solution for this type of vacation that you will take for a lifetime…

Trek to Lungde (4,500m) 5/6 hrs

The high valley beyond Thame sees few pedestrians and is a common area for yokes, farmers, and sherpas. Before reaching Lunde you walk through some really old, real Himalayan villages that blend into the landscape almost invisibly. We go all the way up to Lunde (4,500 meters). During the hike, we can see the magnificent views of the vast Himalayan range up to Renzo La, including breathtaking views of Cajo Ree when we arrive in Lunde.

Day 8
Rest and acclimatization day at Lungde

Go upstairs and sleep downstairs!! This is a day of rest, not laziness. Our trekking today adds to our immateriality and as we ascend the nearby mountains with one breath we soon realize that this difficult ascent was worth crossing. This adaptation helps to get used to the high altitude, then return to Lungde for a free afternoon to relax.

Day 9
Traverse Renjo-La (5,340m) and trek to Gokyo (4,700m)

Today marks the early start of our trek from Bhote Khosi to the ‘Twin Lakes’ of Renzo La Muni. Crossing the lakes, we continue our approach to Renzo La, following a well-used trail with stone steps. Almost all the way to the top. We reach the peak prayer flag (5,340 meters) waving in the air after a long hike in the morning and take the time to take advantage of the views up to Everest – just incredible. Then, after the initial vertical landing covered with snow, the rocky path to Gokyo Lake is re-set. The third lake is called Dudhpokhri and on its eastern bank (4790m) is the summer settlement of Gokyo. We stay overnight.

Day 10
Rest day at Gokyo Lake (4,800m)

Traverse Chola pass (5,420m) and trek to Dzongla (4,820m) 7/8 hrs

We make an early start for the long day at Cho La Pass (5420m). When we reach the pass, we cross a large rocky plain. This very old Moren Area, vertical to the climbing spots on the pass, includes some easy scrambling. The upper part of the road can be covered with snow, especially after November. From the pass, there are excellent views, including a completely different side of the mother wobble seen from the northwest. The pass involves crossing a small glacier (usually covered with snow) that is quite straightforward. As we descend the grazing steps below, the trail becomes clearer as we reach Dzongla (4830m) for a well-earned rest. More

Day 13
Trek to Lobuche (4,910m) 4/5 hrs

After Dzongla, we plod higher onto the pretty risky moraine of the Khumbu glacier, passing a chain of stone monuments built in memory of Sherpas who have died on mountaineering expeditions to Mt Everest. From here, the trail narrows and leads to Lobuche on the west side of the valley. From this point on, you will get an amazing view of the sunset at Nuptse.

Day 14
Trek to EBC (5,364m) and back to Gorekshep (5,140m) 7/8 hrs

From Luboche A real early start is required to reach the Everest Base Camp. It takes several hours as the trail weaves its way through ice pinnacles and past the crevasses of the Khumbu Glacier. After a brief lunch and rest, we take the trail to Everest Base Camp through the once vast Gorak Shep Lake.Only upon reaching the Everest Base Camp do we really appreciate the Everest climbers who brave the risky route through the Khumbu icefall. Mountaineer’s tents stand out in bright colors against the monotony of gray surroundings (especially in the spring). Nuptse, Khumbuste and Pumori are the mountains we can view from the base camp. On the return leg, we can take a higher route to get a grand view of the Khumbu icefall and the route to the South Col. And we return to Gorakshep for a restful night to stay asleep.

Day 15

Returning to Gorak Shep, we grab breakfast before retracing our steps to Lobuche at (4930m).

Day 16
Traverse Kongma la (5,535m) and trek to Chukung (4,730m) 7/8 hrs

This pass really doesn’t deserve any credit; Kongma La is a very difficult pass. The views from Kongma La are really breathtaking, especially towards Makalu to the east, the northern cliffs of Ama Doublum and the Nuptase above your head. The active village of Chukung is about 4 hours away from the pass.

Day 17
Trek to Tengboche (3,800m) 6/7 hrs

The trail from Chukung leads to the edge of the valley above Dudhkoshi. We get our first really good views of the great peaks of the Khumbu, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse and Ama Dublam.

Difficulty

Physical Rating: 5-6

Everest three high passes trek is considered challenging due to the longer duration trek/climb in a remote and isolated area that goes above 5500m and you need to sleep at an elevation of 5000m+ for multiple days. This grade doesn’t involve the usage of technical equipment (Harness, Ice Axe, Crampons, Mountaineering Boots, Ascender). Previous experience of trekking at high altitudes is essential but not mandatory. You should be in excellent physical shape to take part in the Everest High Passes trek. Our three high passes trek is a fully lodged based holiday with a full support crew to assist you.

Prerequisites

No previous experience of trekking is required but you should be moderately fit and have fun walking and adapting to high altitude conditions. Having previous experience is definitely beneficial but it is not mandatory to participate for this trip. To fully participate in this journey, all passengers must be in good physical health. We strongly advise you to prepare for your trip by exercising regularly, walking, running or going to the gym. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable the hiking experience will be. All of our travel itineraries have been designed with each aspect in mind and given enough time for adaptation.

Weather

The best seasons for Everest three high passes are Autumn (latter half of September till December) and Spring (latter half of March until mid-May). On both seasons, Mornings are usually clear, with clouds building up in the afternoon and disappearing at night. The given temperature may raise or lower with the change in weather factors: (Sunny, Snow, Rain etc.)
Monsoon and Winter seasons are not recommended for Everest three high passes trek.

Autumn/Fall:
Slightly colder than Spring but presents clear views of the mountains. The mornings are clear providing best mountain views, days are warmer and night time will get cold and frosty. The temperature during Autumn varies from lowest -10 degree Celsius at Gorekshep to warmest 25 degree Celsius at Lukla/Phakding.

Spring:
Another weather window for trekking in Nepal comes during the month of the latter March to May. The temperature will be relatively warmer during this period of time but still, nights will be cold and frosty at a higher elevation. Temperatures will drop considerably as you ascend higher every day. During the spring season, the base camp will be full of tents as Apr-May are preferred time to climb Mt. Everest.

Travel insurance

It’s mandatory and highly recommended to get travel insurance before embarking on any adventurous trips in Nepal. We advise all our clients to get travel insurance that covers emergency helicopter evacuation that may be needed in case of the occurrence of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) or any other reasons in high altitudes where there are no other means of transportation available. It is advisable to review carefully the insurance and its coverages before making the final decision. Carry proof of your insurance with you on the holiday and leave a copy next to your kin. You must ensure that your insurance provides an adequate level of protection and covers you for the activities involved.

Group Size

Our emphasis is always on maintaining small groups to make it easier to coordinate and cooperate with each other. Our group size is small and we only charge up to 12 pax per group.
If you join us, you can join people from different countries in any age group except minors. The size of the group varies, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 12 people required to conduct the trip.

Carry my own stuff

You will only carry your day pack carrying the essential items (Water, Cameras, Extra Fleece, Rain jacket, Sunscreen, Snacks, Valuable Items, etc.) that you may need during the walk. The rest of your stuff will be carried by the porter. We provide 1 porter for every 2 participants and we also provide a duffel bag to put your trekking gears.

Whether you’re returning from the mountains or touching the base from the airport, come and relax at the hotel, and order some good Italian espresso or a cold beer enjoy.

On Trek:

Rooms are basic, usually a bed with pillows and blankets, but there is a wonderful view from your window. All teahouses/lodges have ample warm dining room lounges. The rooms are very basic. Blankets are usually provided by the teahouse but we will provide warm sleeping bags for everyone.

The Bathrooms are often shared and in many places, toilets are squat type. Please note that some of these are very basic and require a sense of adventure.

Single supplement:
Those who want to build their own room in Kathmandu will have to pay only one supplementary fee. Especially when traveling in groups, we always pair up to share a room with people of the same sex and age. If in the case of single by default, customers do not have to pay for a single supplement. Please note that trekking, due to limited rooms in teahouses/lodges, is sometimes not possible for singles.

On Trek: Drinking Water
Staying hydrated is important during any physical activity but especially at altitude where it is generally recommended to drink at least 3 liters per person per day.
We urge you not to buy bottled water on the trek as it contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution in Nepal.
Teahouses sell almost boiled water. Nepali Rs.150-300 per liter but (cost increases when traveling) which does not require treatment. It’s also perfect for bedtime refills as it can double as a hot water bottle.
Alternatively, all teahouses will provide free cold water on request. Although it is not good to drink without treatment, it is important to note that we recommend that you bring a reusable bottle and use an effective form of water treatment.

Meals

Includes food
All meals are included in the trek and we will provide three meals a day (B, L, D) during the trek. Tea houses range from traditional Nepali dal bhat, and momo (dumplings) to Indian food to pizza and apple pie. During the trek, breakfast and dinner will be served at the tea house / lodge where you are staying and lunch will be on the way.

In Kathmandu, breakfast will be provided only to give maximum flexibility in deciding where and with whom to have lunch and dinner.

Typical Day

Daily wake-up calls will be between 6.00 am to 7.00 am while on the trek. The wake-up time and breakfast time will be decided the night before during the briefing time. The timetable for each day will entirely depend on your walking duration for that particular day.

Tea will be served in your room as a wake-up call. After a hearty breakfast, we set off on the day’s walk.

After dinner, the evening will often be spent playing cards and reliving the day’s adventures, before heading off to bed for a well-earned sleep.

Equipment Checklist

Needless to say that kitting and stuffing yourself out for a trek is almost a herculean task that keeps you mulling and often gets you overwhelmed. But at the mercy of the renting outlets sprouting in every visible corner in Kathmandu, preparing for trekking in Nepal these days is almost tantamount to equipping yourself for a weekend backpacking trip. Most of the heavy and expensive items are easily available for rent, so you don’t actually have to travel to Nepal with a cartload of gear. We have endeavored to formulate a categorical checklist that gives you a tentative idea regarding the gears and accessories mandatory for you during the trek. The list could vary depending upon the kind of trek you pursue, the terrain, weather conditions, and time of the year. For instance, you don’t need the camp trek equipment when you are on a tea-house trek. This listing below simply serves as a guideline and you can always have your own checklist.
