Everest Three Pass Trekking

This spectacular Everest Three Pass trekking will more than satisfy the ambitious trekker intent on crossing high passes without the necessity of any technical climbing. The trek offers an enduring experience of natural beauty, geological magnificence and profound cross-cultural discovery. The Sherpa residents of Khumbu, the great valley below Mount Everest, believe that all things-- mountains, plants and animals--are sacred.

This Three Pass trek starts from Lukla after a 35 minute mountain flight from Kathmandu. Then trekking through Namche, Thame and finally across the Renjo-la pass (5435m.), you get outstanding views of Mt. Everest, Lhotse and Cho Oyu before heading down to Gokyo.  Gokyo Ri provides spectacular mountains views of the Khumbu region. From Gokyo, the route continues to Thaknak, Cho-la pass (5420m.), Lobuche, and Kala Patar (5545m.) for the closest view of Everest and dramatic views of Pumori. Crossing the Khongma-la pass, you continue to Imja Valley and climb to the final view point at Chhukhung Ri peak (5553m.) and return back to Lukla through Dingboche, Tyengboche and Namche.
