Everest Three Passes Trek – Ultimate Hiking Experience in Nepal 

Three Passes Trek combined with the Everest Base Camp Trek gives you an ultimate experience in the Everest Region as it covers almost all the highest points and high passes that can be trekked. For example, Kalapathar (5545m), Gokyo Ri (5480m), Everest Base Camp (5364m), Nangkar Tshang (5616m), and covers the most beautiful part of the Khumbu and Gokyo Region inside the Sagarmatha National Park.

Everest Three Passes Trek is an exceptionally scenic,  splendid and a challenging trek, especially when crossing the Chola Pass right uptill Gokyo. Oviously not meant for the faint hearted.  Hiking among the giants of the Himalayan mountains, the nineteen days Three Passes trek meanders through the heartland of Everest Region providing you that unsurpassed feeling of having trekked and seen the most beautiful part of Khumbu and Gokyo Valley. The high point of the Everest three Passes trek is crossing the three high passes, Chola Pass (5430m), Kongma La Pass (5535m) and Renjola Pass (5345m). Not to forget the climb to Gokyo Ri and Kalapathar for the views of the Everest Range, and a day hike to the five Gokyo lakes with unsurpassed beauty.

Getting Around

Everest Three Passes trek starts with a 30 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From lukla the three passes trail starts gently and follows the same route as the regular Everest Base Camp Trail to Namche Bazaar, the capital and the heart and soul of the Khumbu Region and to Dingboche.  From here the Everest three passes trek separates and heads towards Chukung  and a climb to Kong ma La Pass and drops down to Lobuche Glacier to Lobuche. After visiting the Everest Base Camp return trek to Dzongla, from here we cross over the Chola Pass leaving behind Khumbu Region and enter into Gokyo Valley.

Crossing the Three High Passes 

Everest three passes trek involves crossing Chola Pass (5430m), Kongma La Pass (5535m) and Renjola Pass (5345m). Over and above visiting Kalapathar (5545m), Everest Base Camp (5364m) and Gokyo Ri (5480m), Nangkar Tshang ( 5616m). Of these, Crossing Chola Pass is the most strenuous and tricky as the trail to Chola Pass and beyond to Gokyo Valley is through moraines and through the Nzogumpa Glacier. Crampons are a welcome addition when there is hard snow at Chola Pass as it helps you to some extent from slipping. Otherwise, the other two passes are a series of clmbs, but the views from these passes are mesmerizing, especially from the Renjola Pass the view of the Gokyo Lake far below and of the Everest Range, which can be compared with that of the view from Gokyo Ri.

Day trek in Gokyo Valley

On a rest day in Gokyo, the Everest Three Passes Trek has a beautiful option of  visiting the five Gokyo Lakes. Take a wonderful day hike to the five lakes without gaining much altitude. Trek through the flat valley floor to the fourth lake , Tonak ( 4840m) or through the the more strenuous trail through the moraine which provides beautiful views. Trek up to the fifth lake, Nzogumpa (4980m) and while here climb up to a small hill decorated with prayer flags, known as the Binders Bump, Hill 153 or the scoundrel’s view point for spectacular views of the world’s highest mountains. To the North are Cho Oyu, Gyachung Khang and the Nzogumpa Glacier. To the east are the unobstructed views of North Face of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse and Makalu.
