“The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page.”

Our 19 day Everest Three High Pass Trek is a champion among the most famous and searched for trek routes to the majestic base camp of Mt. Everest. Mainly because trekkers get to visit many iconic sites inside Khumbu region within just one trip to the Himalayas. Gokyo Lakes, Kalapatthar, Tengboche Monastery (the largest monastery of Khumbu region) are some the major highlighted destinations of this specific trip package. But the show stopping high passes Cho La (5,320m), Kongma La (5,535m) and Renjo La (5,400m)are definitely the most challenging points of this entire trek.

Taking off the eastern Himalayas with a scenic 30 min mountain flight, we arrive at Lukla airport where we are scheduled to begin our trek. At the starting phase of our trek, we head up towards Namche Bazaar which is largely popular for its lodges and cafes fully equipped with modern conveniences such as Free Wi-Fi, hot shower and good food for your hungry stomach. We cross several high suspension bridges which are sure to be festooned with numerous Buddhist prayer flags as they flutter horrendously with the strong gust of Himalayan winds. Additionally, we are to spend a full day in Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes as it is very necessary to be properly acclimatized before continuing on with our trek. Without getting proper rest at Namche Bazaar, trekkers can increase their chance of getting High Altitude Sickness which normally happens a high trekking areas above 3,000 m. Here onward, we take cautiously planned steps to Thame and Lungden village respectively before heading to the tranquil Gokyo Lakes by crossing our first Himalayan pass of Renjo la. Later on, we head to Gorakshep via Chola Pass and ultimately reach the Everest Base Camp which can be a very rewarding moment for foreign trekkers. Moving on, we now have to cross the last pass of Kongma La before getting back to Lukla. On the fourteenth day, we cross the last hurdle of our trek by getting across Kongma La pass and then descend down to Tengboche and Namche Bazaar. Likewise, from Namche, we retrace our footsteps back down to Lukla for a flight back to Kathmandu and conclude our trek.

We suggest spring and autumn seasons as the best time of the year for this trek. Additionally, it is better to train yourself prior to the trek both mentally and physically as there is a very high chance that one may succumb down to this trek.
