It offers thrilling experiences and breathtaking views from high passes, showcasing the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest (8848 m), Lhotse (8516 m), Makalu (8463 m), and Cho Oyu (8201 m). The trek encompasses three key passes: Kongma La (5535 m), Khumbu Glacier leading to Everest Base Camp (5364 m), and Kalapatthar (5545 m) for breathtaking views.

The journey continues onward to the second high pass, Cho La (5420 m), traversing Ngozumpa Glacier, exploring Gokyo Lakes, and ascending Gokyo Ri (5360 m) for closest views of Mt. Everest and Cho Oyu. Finally, crossing Renjo La (5360 m) offers stunning mountain vistas before descending to Lunden, Thame and Thamo villages to join in Namche Bazaar.

The 18-days Everest Three Pass Trekking offers a thrilling adventure with stunning mountain views. It includes crossing Kongma La, Chola, and Renjo La passes, exploring Everest Base Camp, Kalapatthar viewpoint, Gokyo Lakes, and Gokyo Ri. The trek also involves experiencing Sherpa culture, wildlife sightings, and trekking through Sagarmatha National Park with entry permits required.

The Everest region's full-circle route is a wonderful journey that immerses you in both adventure and cultural exploration. As you trek through challenging terrain, you also delve into the lifestyle, culture, and religion of the Sherpa people, known for their Buddhist heritage and historic monasteries like Tengboche, Namche, and Thame.

Sagarmatha National Park, the backdrop for this adventure, teems with wildlife like Yaks and Jyopcho used for supplying goods and foods to Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Valley. The trek offers ample opportunities to spot diverse wildlife such as mountain goats, deer, and birds like Danfe and Munal. Amidst this, the trek presents breathtaking views of crystal-clear white mountains, with encounters with the massive Khumbu and Ngozumpa Glaciers adding to the adventure.

Information about Three Passes as Kongma La, Chola, and Renjo La

Kongma La Pass (5535 m/18160 ft): First High Pass

Kongma La Pass is the first and most challenging pass on the Everest Three Pass trek, standing at 5535 m. The journey is lengthy, with no tea houses between Chhukung and Lobuche. Initially, you'll enjoy a smooth ascent for a couple of hours, followed by a more demanding climb for another couple of hours. Near the top, you'll encounter a stunning blue lake that exudes positive energy, momentarily easing any fatigue.

The panoramic views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, and other majestic mountains will leave you in awe. Descending from this adventurous pass requires careful navigation, as the terrain is steep and prone to falling stones and possible icy patches.

Your guide will ensure you have a packed lunch and carry dry snacks like nuts and chocolate bars, which are quite helpful. After conquering the pass, you'll cross the vast Khumbu Glacier, eventually reaching the safety of Lobuche. The entire journey typically takes around 8 hours, depending on your pace. Once in Lobuche, you can treat yourself to warm soup, delicious meals, and a cozy stay at a comfortable lodge.

Visit to Everest Base Camp (5364 m) and Thrilling Viewpoint of Kalapatthar (5545 m)

After successfully crossing the first pass, you'll venture to the renowned Everest Base Camp (5364 m), the highest base camp globally, and then ascend to the exhilarating viewpoint of Kalapatthar (5545 m). The base camp is a relatively easy 2-hour trek from Gorakshep camp, requiring minimal ascending and offering straightforward accessibility.

Kalapatthar, on the other hand, presents a challenge, taking nearly 2 hours to ascend to its viewpoint at 5545 meters. The reward is extraordinary; you'll witness a breathtakingly close view of Mt. Everest towering at 8848 meters, along with stunning vistas of other peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, and Pumori. It's an experience that's nothing short of incredible!

Chola Pass (5420 m/17783 ft): Second High Pass

After completely visiting Chukung Valley, Kongma La Pass, and Everest Base Camp, Kalapatthar began his journey towards the second high pass of Chola (5420 m). It is such a wonderful pass. You will sleep at Dzong La at around 4830 m. You must ascend (590 m); it takes an average of 3 hours ascending and almost 4 hours downhill to reach Thagna. Take a quick lunch, cross the Ngozumpa glacier for an hour, then stay at Gokyo Valley. It is also a long pass, but you will easily arrive at the beautiful camp in Gokyo. Stay at a lovely lodge.

Explore Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri Top (5360 m/17585 ft.)

Gokyo Valley has five lakes: the first is tiny and nice, the second is quite big on the way, and the third is tremendous and beautiful where it is in front of lodges. You will see it from your room’s window. You will face it often, and it is so wonderful. The 4th and 5th lakes are situated each and every hour away from the lodge.

Gokyo Ri top is standing at 5360 m. It also takes a couple of hours to ascend. It is similar to Kalapatthar's open viewpoint of 360 degrees. You will see a huge part of Mt. Everest (8848 m), the closest view of Cho Oyu (8201 m), Cholatse, and a huge glacier part of Ngozumpa glacier and Gokyo lakes. It is such a mesmerizing view.

Renjo La Pass (5360 m/17585 ft)—Third and Last Pass

The Renjo La Pass is the third and final pass, offering an easy and spectacular viewing experience. You must ascend for approximately three hours to reach the top, followed by a four-hour descent. At the summit of Renjo La, you'll enjoy breathtaking views of numerous snow-capped peaks such as Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu, as well as the trembling Gokyo Lake and Ngozumpa Glacier, all visible repeatedly from this vantage point. 

After crossing the Renjo La Pass during the trek, you'll descend into beautiful landscapes, passing by a small pond and enjoying various mountain views along the way. The trail to Lunden is well-defined and easy to navigate, making for a pleasant and straightforward journey.

Trail Heading Towards Thame and Thamo Valley, then Joining at Namche Bazaar

After crossing the Renjo La Pass during the trek, you'll experience a sense of relief, easy breathing, and gradual descents. You'll pass through the Thame and Thamo villages, reaching Namche Bazaar quickly. From there, you'll head to Lukla and fly back to Kathmandu. Although challenging, the adventure is immensely enjoyable. Completing the trip will fill you with pride.

How about transportation to get to the Everest Three-Pass Trek?

Easy access is by flight from Kathmandu to Lukla in just 35 minutes, and returning is also the same. There is off-road, long driving; you need an extra 2 days to arrive at Lukla. I highly recommend flying there, and returning is the same. We arranged it nicely.

Do We Need to Issue Entry Permits for the Everest Three-Pass Trek?

Yes, permits are required for trekking in the Everest region. Upon entering Sagarmatha National Park, which begins when you land in Lukla, there are checkpoints where permits are checked. Without the necessary permits, access to the Everest region or Sagarmatha National Park is not permitted. The required permits include:

  1. Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit.
  2. Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit
  3. TIMS (Trekking Information Management System) 

We can assist in issuing these permits for you. We need your passport photocopy and a passport-size photo, which we will use to obtain the permits. Our guide will carry the permits during the trek and handle any checkpoint requirements. At the end of the trek, you'll receive a souvenir as a token of completion.

When Is the Best Time to Visit the Everest Three-Pass Trek?

The best times to embark on the Everest Three Pass Trek are during autumn (September, October, November, and late December) and spring (March, April, and May). During these months, the weather tends to be clear, with pleasant temperatures, excellent visibility, and stunning, crystal-clear mountain views.

While the winter and monsoon seasons are viable for trekking, they do come with certain considerations. In winter (late December, January, and February), expect snowfall and extremely cold temperatures. The monsoon season (June, July, and August) brings frequent rainfall, cloudy conditions, and reduced visibility. However, if you prefer trekking during these times, it's still possible, and we'll ensure your trip is safe and successful.

  • Autumn Season: September, October, November, and December
  • Winter Season: late December, January, and February
  • Spring Season: March, April, and May
  • Monsoon Season: June, July, and August

Carry Your Important Medicine

Medicine is crucial, especially in remote mountain regions where healthcare facilities are scarce. It's vital to carry any necessary medication for pre-existing conditions. Prevention is better than cure, as there are no clinics or hospitals readily available along the trekking route. Even if there is a clinic, it may not have the specific medication you require. Therefore, I strongly advise you to bring your medication or purchase it in Kathmandu before the trek. Our company provides a basic first aid kit with items like headache and fever medication, but it's essential to have your specific medications on hand.

    An Excellent Guide for High Altitude Trekking in Nepal

    We did the Three Passes trek with Jay Gurung (Unique Nepal Adventure Treks & Expedition) in October 2023. Overall, it was a great experience. Trip planning was done smoothly over WhatsApp, with Jay always willing to tailor the trip to our needs and expectations. Jay himself is always cheerful and encouraging. He is more than happy to pass on his extensive knowledge of the mountains and of Nepali culture—one can learn a lot from him. I would hope to use Jay as a guide for any of my future Nepal trekking trips.

    Khumbu 3 passes trek with Jay

    This was our second trek with Jay, the first was the Annapurna circuit in 2019, and this time we did the Khumbu 3 passes trek, for a total of 20 days and 225km. Jay made all the arrangements for transportation and hotels. He is a very experienced guide who knows the country, the people, and their customs very well. We were well supported on our trip and had a lot of fun with Jay and our porter, Tesman. Jay is full of stories of his treks; he plays a mean game of Wizard and was always there to greet us in the morning with coffee and tea. We would highly recommend Jay for your trekking experience. He is pleasant and thoughtful, and we had a great trip.
