The Three Passes Trek to Everest Base Camp is the most completed trek in Nepal as it covers most of the Everest region on its circular route. 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. Namche Bazaar is located within the Khumbu area at 3,440 metres, at its low point, populating the sides of a hill. We mostly see Sherpas in the Namche area. It is the main trading center and hub for the Khumbu region. The trail follows the valley of Imja Khola with spectacular views of Thamserku, Kangtega and Ama Dablam mountains, and dominating the skyline ahead are the giants, Lhotse and Everest. The most common night halt after Namche is at the top of a steep climb from the Imja Khola at Tengboche.
The Tengboche is one of the most famous monasteries. Then, conquer the Kongma La (5,535 m), en-route to Lobuche and Everest Base Camp. Return to Duglha and take the long route up the Cho La (5,368 m) and steep descent to Thangnak. We cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and head for Gokyo. The western section includes the steep ascent to the Renjo La (5,388 m). We descent to Marulung faces new dramatic landscapes. Below this village, the trail joins an old Tibetan salt trade route and continues to Thame and then back to Namche Bazaar-Lukla and finally flight back to Kathmandu.
