The trek is more challenging than the classic Everest Base Camp Trek and its other variations as it involves traversing the three high passes that lend the trek its name Kongma-La pass, Cho La pass and Renjo La pass- each over 5,000 m. These passes together form an excellent trekking package having fun, excitement, adventure and challenge it’s a great opportunity to witness the Everest Base Camp and Kalapathar too, on doing Everest Three Passes Trek. The Trek begins in the popular starting point of Lukla. From Lukla, we trek upward to the Namche Bazaar, following the valley of the Dudh Koshi River.
