Khumbu Three Peaks Climb is a unique Himalayan mountaineering holiday in the Everest region that offers you the opportunity to climb three peaks in a single itinerary. Climb Island Peak [6,189 m/20,305 ft], Pokalde Peak [5,806 m/19,049 ft] and Lobuche Peak [6,119 m/20,075 ft] on a solo trip to Gokyo, Gokyo Ri and Cho La Pasco.

Our Khumbu Three Peaks Climb is ideal for people with previous high altitude trekking experience and looking for the ultimate climbing holiday in the Himalayas. Climbing the three peaks of the Khumbu region, which is about 6,000 meters high, and visiting the shores of Gokyo Lake make this trip unique. Learn mountaineering skills and build Himalayan mountaineering experience. Or, if your goal is to climb big mountains like Ama Dablam, Manaslu or Cho Yu, this trip serves as an excellent introductory trip.

The trip is fully guided and supported by our guides and we provide a 1:3 climbing guide to customer ratio on peak days for maximum support. Each peak is listed as a trekking peak of Nepal and there is no technical difficulty in climbing. However, the long duration and extreme conditions make this journey challenging. Each climb requires different skills and this trip will definitely give you a better understanding of high-altitude climbing and sharpen your mountaineering skills. You will not only enjoy the breathtaking mountain views of the Everest region but also the warm hospitality of the friendly Sherpas in the central Khumbu Valley. Our ascent starts from the yak trail in the valley and leads to the base of the peak through some steep passes. We will start our climb of the Khumbu Three Peaks from Lobuche Peak and end at the island peak. Adequate acclimatization days and contingency days are allocated in the itinerary to ensure a successful climb.

Climbing Island Peak Climb (6,189m/20,305ft)

Island Peak is one of the 6000m trekking peaks in the Everest region. The route is not technical but requires good physical strength as it climbs steep sections and a thin summit ridge. It is the first choice of many when climbing the 6000m mountain. Island Peak is a classic 6000m Himalayan peak that takes your mountaineering skills to new heights in one place. The island peak is the second most sought after peak in the Everest region after the mighty Mount Everest. Standing at a height of 6189 meters, this peak offers a real climbing experience using ladders and fixed ropes on a steep snow sleeve at 45 degrees.

Pokalde Climb (5,806m/19,049 ft)

Climbing Pokalde does not require special technical skills but requires a strong ability to conquer the steep rocks to reach the summit. Crossing the Khongma La Pass, we will attempt to climb the Pokalde North Rock. We may have to use fixed ropes at some points. The summit offers views of Island Peak, Mount Ama Dablam and other peaks and mountains.

Climb Lobuche East Ascent (6,119m/20,075ft)

Lobuche Peak is presented as an ideal Himalayan climb for beginners. Climbing provides a great foundation for building more mountaineering skills. The climb to Lobuche East does not involve real difficulty but there is a sense of some exposure along the way. Lobuche East Peak also serves as an excellent introductory climb for people looking to climb 8000m. Many climbers attempt the Lobuche as part of their acclimatization. The peak offers panoramic views of the Khumbu Valley including Everest, Pumori, Ama Dablam and other peaks and mountains.

Essential Information


Climbing Khumbu three peaks is considered tough due to long duration trekking/climbing in remote and isolated areas going above 6000m and you have to sleep at altitude of 5000m+ for several days. Climbers require an excellent physical level. On the day of the summit, you will leave the base camp at 2 am and return to the base camp only in the afternoon. This grade includes the use of climbing equipment (harness, ice axe, crampons, mountaineering boots, climbing). Previous experience is required and we also offer a climbing course at base camp before the actual climb where your guides will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.


Taking part in the three peaks trek in Khumbu requires an excellent physical level as the trek involves long periods of trekking/climbing. Previous experience in high altitude trekking and climbing smaller peaks is very beneficial when climbing a 6000m peak. While previous trekking/climbing experience is essential, our carefully planned itineraries allow people with no previous experience to join. A careful approach is planned with several rest and acclimatization days in our itinerary. You should also be prepared both mentally and physically for this journey. A fierce determination, burning desire and teamwork are required. We allow enough time for acclimatization and contingency in our itinerary and there will also be a climbing course at the base camp where your guide will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.


All meals are included in the trek and provided from day 03 to 26. We will provide three meals a day (B, L, D) during the trek. Teahouses have a varied menu from traditional Nepali dal bhat, momos (dumplings) to pizza and apple pie. During the trek, breakfast and dinner will be served at the tea house/lodge where you stay and lunch will be served en route.
On climbing days for base camps, it will be completely camping style. Our team will prepare food for us.

If you have any special dietary requirements please let us know in advance and we will be sure to pass your message on to your guide. For a gluten-free diet, we recommend you bring extra food, especially for breakfast, as your options for breakfast will be limited. Meals worth USD 1200-1400 are included in this trip.
You are encouraged to bring comfort foods – chocolates, power bars, dry fruits, candies, other snacks, etc.


We stay in a 3* hotel in Kathmandu. Breakfast will be provided at the hotel and your accommodation will be on a twin sharing basis.

On the trek:
(Everest region) trekking does not require heavy logistics in accommodation as there are many clean and friendly lodges along the trail. Rooms are basic, usually a bed with a pillow and blanket.

Climbing Days:
On climbing days, your accommodation will be entirely in tented camping. A tent will be arranged between every 2 climbers. If in case of single by default, we will provide single tent at no extra charge.

Best Season

The best seasons to climb the three peaks of Khumbu are autumn (October to late November) and spring (April to May). As you climb higher each day the temperature will drop significantly. Nights are cool (between 5C to -5C) and days are sunny and warm (between 10C to 20C). Mornings are usually clear, clouds form in the afternoon and disappear at night. Trekking and climbing is not recommended during monsoons and winters as visibility is poor and limited while the upper reaches and higher routes may be covered with snow.

April, May October and November are the favorite months.


Our Khumbu Three Peaks Climbing Itinerary is designed keeping every important aspect in mind. Our itineraries include adaptation days and contingency days for any situation. Our unique approach that includes an acclimatization trek to Gokyo and Cho La Pass not only provides good acclimatization but also an effective adventure covering the best terrain of the Everest region. From this point of view, we have seen a huge increase in the success ratio of summit takers. From Lobuche, we drive to Focalde via Khongma La Pass. When it’s done, we head to the island summit for our final objective.


High altitude treks and climbs, especially in the Himalayas, are challenging and require you to be in top physical, emotional and psychological condition. The fitter you are, the more enjoyable your trip will be.

Advance training is highly recommended and after you sign up for the trip, we will send you our training manual which will provide you with the necessary information on how to prepare.

While on the trip before your actual climb, we will conduct a climbing clinic at the base camp where our guides will teach you essential mountaineering skills.


Travel insurance is mandatory and highly recommended before embarking on any adventure in Nepal. We advise all our clients to obtain travel insurance that covers emergency helicopter evacuation required for AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) or any other reason required at high altitudes where other means of transport are not available. It is advisable to carefully review the insurance and its coverages before making a final decision. Take your proof of insurance with you on holiday and leave a copy with your relative. You should ensure that your insurance provides an adequate level of protection and covers you for the activities involved.

Baggage / Daypack

You will only carry your day pack with the essentials you will need during the walk (water, camera, extra fleece, rain jacket, sunscreen, snacks, valuables etc.). The porter will carry the rest of your gear. We provide 1 porter for every 2 participants.

During the summit push, you will carry only the essential items required during the climb. Since we will start our summit push from base camp and return to base camp on the same day, you will leave everything else at base camp and carry only essential items. There will also be 1 guide for every 3 climbers, who will be happy to assist you if needed

drinking water

Yes, we provide boiled water for drinking purpose in all our treks and climbs. During the meal, you can ask the boys to fill the hot water for you.
