THE ULTIMATE TREKKING EXPERIENCE
The Three Passes trek is the ultimate trekking experience if you want to take your Basecamp trek to the next level physically. You will be trekking over 3 high alpine passes at Renio La, Cho La and Kongma La, reaching altitudes of 5000m and pushing your trekking limits to the max. This is an adventure trek like no other bringing you deep into the heart of the Himalayas and with views of some of the most famous high altitude peaks including Mt Everest, Mt Lhotse and Ama Dablam.
WHAT THE TREK INVOLVES
Beginning in Kathmandu with a wonderful welcome dinner and exploring the heart of Kathmandu you will meet the team before catching a plane to Lukla the next morning, one the most iconic and thrilling flights in the world. From Lukla you will follow the Everest Base camp trek itinerary passing through the famous Sherpa capital, Namche Bazaar and starting your first pass Kongma La (5,535m) and visiting Everest base camp itself. Every day is a unique experience of Sherpa culture, Buddhist monasteries and stupas and views that will last in your memory forever. Following Everest Basecamp you will begin the next pass, Cho La and experience the glistening blue lake of Gokyo and then to Renjo La pass where you will finish back in Lukla.
The highest point of the trek will be Kongma La pass which will take you higher than Everest Basecamp! The beauty of this trek is that it’s a circuit through the whole Solukhumbu region really taking you on a journey to every corner. This is a step beyond EBC trek but don’t let that worry you! The requirements for this trek are a good baseline fitness and motivation.
