Everest 3 High Passes Trek – Trip Overview
The Everest High Passes Trek is an exciting adventure in Nepal’s Himalayas, which includes hiking trails on Mount Everest and explores the unique gems of Khumbu. On our hiking trip, we crossed the three high passages of the Everest region: Kongma La Pass (5,535 / 18,159 feet), Cho La Pass (5420 meters / 17,782 feet) and Renjo La Pass (5,340 meters / 17,520 feet). Embark on Everest base camp, Kalapathhar and Gokyo Ri and visit Gokyo Lake. This route also presents hikers to the remote and unspoiled Nangpa La Valley, the Sherpa village of Marlung and the village of the Thame monastery.
The Everest High Passes Trek is ideal for true explorers looking for a challenging trek in the Everest region of Nepal, which includes crossing the mountain pass. If you are looking to undertake a slightly less adventurous trek than this but which includes Gokyo lakes, Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp trek, then Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes would be best.
This hike offers the best opportunities to walk along three beautiful high-altitude passages in the Everest region, namely Kongma La Pass, Cho La Pass and Renjo La Pass. The beautiful landscape of the pass almost knocks everyone from the knee. However, it is equally challenging. There are not many facilities as it is located in remote areas of the Everest region. Therefore, this part of hiking offers one of the adventures and beautiful experiences for trekker. Himalayan Adventure Nepal offer you unique mountain experience while trek or tour in Nepal and collect the marvelous joy in the cultural land Kathmandu .

Can I be a good trekker on Everest 3 Passes Trek ?
Everest High Passes Trek is a difficult trek but it is highly demanding and suitable for passionate walkers who have the ability to walk at least 5-6 hours a day with a light rucksack.at least the trekker need to be prepared physically and mentally as you might even need to walk 8 to 9 hours each day. Walking in higher altitude is more physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, if we have good health with average physical fitness, positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination, we can accomplish the trek successfully.
It will be better to have exercised and jogging regularly before embark on the trek to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience is preferred but no technical skill is required. It is important that we consult with our doctor before booking this trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform Himalayan Adventure Nepal before booking the trek.
