Everest Three High Passes Trek - 19 Days
Everest Three High Passes trek is a combined journey of tradition and culture as well as adventure. It takes you to 3 high passes that are Renjo La Pass, Chola Pass and Kongma La Pass. It also includes some untouched and unreleased Sherpa villages such as Nagpa La Valley, Marlung and Thame. In fact, Everest Three High Passes Trek is an absolute adventure package for a true adventure seeker. Because crossing such 3 huge passes – altitudes of more than 17 thousand feet is not funny.
Throughout the journey, off course we live some local villages which will be more interesting. You are welcomed by warm hospitality of local inhabitants that makes you to become more familiar with them. We are also blessed with colorful monasteries of Himalayas. And obviously, we get surprised with landscape panoramic views of Himalaya. As we move toward Gokyo, the Himalaya becomes closer and closer, that will be the wonderful moment. And you find awesome views of Himalaya.
We have designed 19 days’ itinerary for Everest Three High Passes Trek which is actually a good itinerary package as per its difficulties. By the way, Everest Three High Passes is little bit longer to those travelers who have less time to spend as it covers larger area of Khumbu region.

We realized by our trekking experience that 12 trekkers in a group is optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you want large number of trekkers in a group, then we also can arrange that too.
Porter and Guide Services
In a group, there will be an experienced guide who has good knowledge about the Himalaya and English Speaking. S/he will care about your enjoyment and safety. However, travel insurance is most valuable things while you are doing trekking in Himalaya. One porter is available to carry 20 kg luggage in the Himalaya. For additional luggage, you will be charged additional.
We will manage accommodation in Hotel only in Kathmandu Valley. There will be tea houses/lodges accommodation during trek. Hotel in Kathmandu has good facilities such as attached washrooms, television etc. However, these facilities are not available in higher elevation. In higher elevation, there may not be single room available. So we have to stay in shared room.
3 times meal per day is provided during trek but only breakfast is provided in Kathmandu. We will have breakfast and dinner in lodges or tea houses and lunch on the way of trekking.
Pick up and drop off service from and to Tribhuvan International Airport is available. A domestic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is included in this trip. Besides that, Taxi service is available while you are doing sightseeing in Kathmandu Valley before Lukla flight.
Best Season to Travel
March to May (Spring) and September to November (Autumn) are the best seasons to make trip in Everest Base Camp because the climate of the Himalaya in these days becomes more clean which guarantees the incredible panoramic mountain views. However, trekking in Everest Base Camp Trek can be undertaken in the winter season too.
