Join us on the ultimate adventure in the Everest region in 2024 by doing the 3 passes trek. It is a 17 days long journey amidst towering mountains and beautiful valleys. Discover the Lukla airport, Namche Bazaar, Everest Base Camp, Gokyo Lakes, and the three high passes. And explore the hidden corners such as Hotel Everest View, Nagarjuna Hill, Kala Patthar, and Gokyo Ri during your acclimatization hikes.

The Everest three pass trek is the longest in the Khumbu region. It is also the most challenging trek in this region, even more difficult than the famous Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes treks. Starting the trek from the Dudh Koshi valley, the trail ascends to Imja Khola Valley, explores EBC, enters Gokyo Valley, and returns to Dudh Koshi valley.  

While trekking through these different valleys, you will witness incredible mountain views, pass by diverse climatic zones, spend nights in picturesque Sherpa villages, and meet some great people along the way. By following our Everest three pass trek itinerary, you will be exploring numerous places and get plenty of time to rest, recover, and acclimatize on the way.

On the Everest three pass trek, you will get to experience the most thrilling flights of your life. The landing and take-off from the Lukla airport will leave you in amazement. The trekking route is serene and soothing. The trail winds through lush rhododendron forests, passing by remote villages and crossing the Dudh Koshi river numerous times.

What should you expect during the 3 passes trek?

If you have heard about Sherpas, then this trek will provide you with a close look at their life and beliefs. You will get to have intimate interactions and learn all about them and other mountain communities.  Then comes the stupas, monasteries, prayer wheels, and colorful prayer flags spread all around the trail. You will visit the ancient Tengboche, Pangboche, and Thame monasteries during the 3 passes trek. Some monasteries also house the skull and hand bones of Yeti.

During your long time in the mountains, you will disconnect from the digital world, challenge your body and mind every day, and as a result, reconnect with your heart and purpose. We believe long treks like this are more than just an adventure. The trekker gets better physically, mentally, and emotionally by the end of the journey.

The upper part of the trail involves trekking via glacier moraines, steep-rugged tracks, and loose boulder fields. The air is thin and cold. Likewise, the exposure to sun, wind, and dust is also high, so wrap your neck and mouth with a scarf, and do not forget to apply sunscreens and moisturizer.

The landscapes you will witness on the Everest three passes trek are jaw-dropping. If you love mountains, then this trek is like a dream come true. You will get to see some of the unreal mountain views that include Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, Cho Oyu, Makalu, Baruntse, etc.  

Everest three pass trek route summary

The Everest three pass trek begins with a thrilling flight to Lukla. You will start walking from Lukla. Spend the first few days in famous villages like Phakding, Namche Bazaar, Pangboche, and Dingboche. In between these villages, you will take three acclimatization breaks and hike to the Hotel Everest View and Nagarjuna Hill.

From Dingboche, follow a less crowded, offbeat route to Kongma La pass. The trail descends to Lobuche village and continues to Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp via Gorak Shep. After these hikes, you will descend to Dzongla and cross Cho La pass. From Cho La pass, the trail drops to Thangnak and continues to Gokyo village via Ngozumpa Glacier.

Spend the last rest day in Gokyo village and hike to Gokyo Ri. The trail then leads you to the top of Renjo La pass and descends Lungden. Further, you will trek past less visited villages called Marlung and Thame and walk back to Lukla via Namche Bazaar. Lastly, a short flight will take you back to Kathmandu.

Who can do the Everest three pass trek in Nepal?

The Everest three pass trek 17 days is recommended to experienced trekkers with strong fitness and endurance. If you are looking for a long, adventurous journey in the Himalayas of Nepal, then we highly suggest this package. You have to be physically and mentally fit to do this trek.

If you are a beginner trekker, we recommend starting with moderate treks like Everest Panorama and Pikey Peak. These trek routes are great for introducing yourself to the Himalayan trail. And once you get the grasp, you can move with tougher trek routes like Gokyo Valley with Everest Base Camp trek, Gokyo Valley trek with Renjo La pass, and eventually Everest three pass.

Tips for Everest three pass trek Nepal

  • Get proper trekking equipment, which is most important and only ascend under 500 meters every day to make your trekking safe and fun. It will help you avoid altitude sickness during the trek and make walking much more comfortable.
  • As the 3 passes trek is a long trek, we highly recommend getting a solar charger for the journey. You can easily buy it online.
  • Buy enough protein bars and snacks in Kathmandu for the trip. Prices are higher along the Everest trail.
  • Do not hesitate to eat during the trek. Have ample food and choose nutritious options. The journey requires a lot of strength.
  • Have Nepali cash on you during the trek. You can buy additional services that are not covered in our package cost, like hot showers, charging, WiFi, beverages, etc.
  • Get a Nepali tourist SIM with data for better internet use.
  • You may share the trails with yaks and mules. While crossing them, always be on the cliffside.
  • Make sure to inquire about meat freshness before ordering any non-veg dish, especially if you are above Dingboche village.

Good to Know

Everest Three Pass trek permits

To do the Everest Three Pass trek, foreign trekkers have to get two permits- a Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance permit and a Sagarmatha National Park Entry permit. The fees of both permits are already covered in our package cost, and our team will get the permits on your behalf.

  • Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance permit cost: approx. USD 20 per person
  • Sagarmatha National Park Entry permit cost: approx. USD 30 per person

Everest Three Passes trek difficulty

The Everest Three Pass trek is the most advanced, offbeat trekking route. It is a strenuous trek, suitable only for trekkers with previous experience and strong fitness. On this trek, you will roughly trek 202 km (126 miles), covering all the side hikes. Every day, you will walk 9 to 11 km (6 - 7 miles).

The Everest Three Pass trek route involves a lot of ascents and descents. The terrain is not flat. Rather, you will traverse rugged, steep tracks via dense forests and uneven hillsides. Moreover, the upper part of the trail goes through glacier moraines and glaciers. Likewise, the entire trekking route is connected by the three high mountain passes.

Crossing these passes is the most difficult part of the 3 passes trek. The terrain is not technically challenging but requires a lot of physical and mental effort. Trekking every day for at least 6 hours is not that easy, especially mentally. You have to keep yourself pushing every day.

Altitude sickness during the 3 high passes trek

The Everest Three Pass trek sees a very high altitude. Most of the trekkers who do this trek are used to low land or sea levels, but this trek takes you above 5,000 meters from sea level. Not only that, but you will go above this elevation more than six times.

High elevation means thin air and low oxygen levels. Most of the trekkers are not used to this environment. Therefore, they suffer from altitude sickness. Its symptoms include headache, vomiting, insomnia, nausea, difficulty in breathing, etc.

Altitude sickness happens if you fail to acclimatize. So, if you acclimatize properly during trekking, you can avoid altitude sickness. Our Everest Three Pass trek itinerary has a perfect acclimatization routine.

Firstly, you will cross the three passes in the anti-clockwise direction, which allows for ample acclimatization time by the time you reach EBC and Gokyo Lakes. Secondly, our itinerary has three rest days with side hikes necessary for acclimatization.

Below, we have mentioned some additional precautions you can take into account to avoid altitude sickness during the Everest Three Pass trek:

  • You have to drink lots of water every day even if you do not feel thirsty because of the climate. Drink at least 2 liters of water daily. By keeping yourself hydrated, you can drastically decrease the risk of altitude sickness.
  • Get plenty of rest daily and have lots of food. You have to eat nutritious carbohydrate-rich food to get ample energy to walk 6 hours a day. Make sure your breakfast and lunch are on the heavy side.
  • Maintain your pace and do not rush while trekking. You do not have to match anyone's speed. Take your time and enjoy the journey.
  • Do not take any medicine without your guide's knowledge. Let him know if you feel any discomfort, and follow his instructions.

Travel insurance for Everest Three Passes trek

Without travel insurance that covers emergency helicopter evacuation and medical bills, you cannot join the Everest Three Pass trek. Travel insurance is a mandatory requirement for this trek, and all trekkers must give us a copy of their travel insurance before the trek starts.

Having a travel insurance with evacuation coverage allows you to enjoy the trip to the fullest as you do not have the burden of the financial side of any unforeseen event. You can cover other things like trip cancellation, international flight cancellation, theft/loss of personal properties, etc, in your travel insurance, too.

The best time to do the Everest Three Pass trek

Before you book the Everest Three Pass trek in Nepal, you have to be mindful of the season you choose to trek in. Pick spring (March to May) or autumn (September to November) for the best trek experience. The weather and climate are favorable in spring and autumn, making them the most popular times to trek in the Himalayas.

The Himalayas are cold throughout the year, however in spring and autumn, the cold is not unbearable, and the trails are not covered with snow. The mornings and nights are colder than the daytime but good enough to enjoy the trek. Likewise, in the lower part of the trail, different vegetation and flowers bloom in spring, making the trail very pretty.

Spring and autumn are pre and post-monsoon times, so the rivers, streams, and waterfalls are in the best conditions. The air is fresh, and the mountain views are crystal clear. Likewise, in autumn, you will get to enjoy the fallen leaves and rustic beauty of the Everest region. Moreover, trekkers can see the biggest Nepalese festivals in autumn.

Food and accommodation on the three passes trek

The food and accommodation facilities along the Everest Three Pass trail are fantastic. Given the remoteness of the trekking route, the trekkers get safe and comfortable lodges to spend the night and delicious warm meals to fuel their journey. Our team books all the accommodation in advance for you.

You get twin shared rooms in the mountains, and washrooms are common in most places. Solo trekkers may opt for single rooms at an additional cost. Pack all toiletries and essentials for the trek, and do not rely on lodges for anything. Pack your toilet paper and soap, too. If you have any specific requests, let us know during booking.

For food, you will get a wide variety of options. In our package cost, you get breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There will be some kind of tea and fruit or sweet in every meal. You are free to buy additional food and drinks as you wish. Carry spending money with you for the trek.

Some common foods you will eat during the trek are dal bhat, thukpa, soups, burgers, chapati, thenduk, momo, etc. Clean drinking water is also available in lodges. Use two water bottles to carry normal and hot water during the trek. You can use a water purification tablet for more safety.

FAQs

  • Q1. Can beginners do the Everest Three Pass trek?

    The Everest Three Pass trek is very physically and mentally demanding, so we do not recommend it to beginner trekkers. However, if you think you are fit enough for the trek and can complete it, get in touch with us. Our team will assess your fitness, and we may proceed with further booking.

  • Gokyo Lakes are holy and a part of the Ramsar site. It is one of the highest lake systems in the world, comprising 19 lakes. Among them, 6 lakes are considered the main lakes. The lakes are located in the isolated valley of Gokyo. Likewise, the spectacular beauty and serenity of the Goko Lakes also make them popular.

  • Yes, you can add a helicopter return to your Everest Three Passes trek itinerary. You can take a helicopter flight from Lukla to Kathmandu or from any part of the trail to Lukla or Kathmandu.

  • No, there is no age limit for the Everest Three Passes trek. We do not recommend doing this trek with your kids because of its challenges. Going above 5,000 meters many times, rugged terrain, and limited facilities may be too much for your kid.

  • Yes, you have to pack warm clothes if you are doing the Everest Three Passes trek in the spring or autumn seasons. The higher elevations are cold throughout the year. Likewise, the mornings and nights are colder than the daytime.

  • The three passes trek in Nepal is one of the most demanding treks in the Khumbu region (Everest region). On the three passes trek, trekkers cross three high mountain passes (5,000 meters above) while exploring Namche Bazaar, EBC, Kala Patthar, Gokyo Valley, and Thame village.

  • The 3 passes trek is one of the most demanding treks in the Himalayas. The trek is not technically challenging but takes you above 5,000 meters many times and involves many steep uphill and downhill walking. This trek requires strong physical and mental fitness.

  • The 3 passes trek is one of the longest treks in the Khumbu region. Our 3 passes trek itinerary is 17 days long. Usually, it takes 17 to 19 or 21 days to complete this trek.

  • All three passes are above 5,000 meters from sea level. Below, we have mentioned the exact elevation of the three passes in the order you will climb them following our itinerary:

    • Kongma La pass (5,540 m/18,176 ft)
    • Cho La pass (5,420 m/17,782 ft)
    • Renjo La pass (5,360 m/17,585 ft)
  • Yes, you will need a guide for the Everest three passes trek even though you can legally do a solo 3 passes trek. Note that the Everest Three Passes trek is not like the usual trek in Nepal. Many tricky and steep sections on this trek require expert guidance to navigate them. Crossing the three passes is like climbing three peaks above 5,000 meters. Trekking with a guide will keep you safe.

  • You can do the Everest Three Pass trek between March to May or September to November. Trekking in winter (early December and late February) is also possible if we are well prepared.

    3 Passes Trek

    Our group of six from Australia did a 16 day, Three Passes Trek in March 2023. Suman and his staff were very punctual and informative from first contact via email through to greeting us on arrival in Kathmandu and through to our departure from Nepal. Suman was prompt, professional and followed through on all matters we raised.
    Our trekking guide, Hupa was experienced, knowledgable, very obliging and has excellent English. He did everything possible to ensure that our 16 day trek was most enjoyable.
    The porters performed an outstanding job, they were strong, very obliging and continuously went beyond what could be expected. We would love to return to Nepal and utilise the services of Suman, Hupa and the team at Dream Heaven.

    THANKS again Suman for your help in organizing our recent trek. All of your team were great especially Hupa, who showed a lot of patience and understanding when Sean & Robyn were sick.

    Although colder than I even expected the days were clear and the scenery AMAZING. Uncle was a terrific porter and helped Peter & I over some pretty tough terrain on the second trek, he is SUPER MAN.

    3 Pass Trek

    We recently returned home to Australia from Nepal after completing our Everest 3 High Passes Trek. It was one of the hardest things we've ever done and we wanted to thank and highly commend our guide, Hupa and our porters, Dil, Tar and Bir.

    Hupa is a credit to this company. He was very kind, patient, helpful and informative. Nothing was too much trouble for him as he guided us on the trek and through the transfers to and from Lukla.

    Our porters Dil, Tar and Bir were nothing short of legends. Carrying our bags on the trek, coming back to assist us while trekking and making sure our bags were in our rooms at the tea houses.

    They all played a huge part in us achieving our goal and we very much appreciated their effort and companionship during the journey.
    Thanking you!

    Female solo traveller on the Three Passes Trek

    I just returned from my second trekking trip in Nepal organised by Suman at Dream Heaven Adventure.

    Last year I did EBC with my husband and we had planned to go to Gokyo as well, but as he wasn't dealing with the altitude too well we were unable to undertake Cho La.  So for me, Gokyo was "unfinished business' and I decided to  return to Nepal to do the Three Passes Trek.

    I had no hesitation using Suman's company again to organise my trip. I've never travelled solo before but I felt very comfortable arriving in Kathmandu on my own as I knew that Dream Heaven would organise everything for me including airport transfers, clean accomodation (often with my own bathroom) and a wonderful guide who really knew the area, spoke excellent English and looked after me every step of the way.

    I felt totally safe and comfortable throughout the three week trek (yes, I tailored in several extra days to give me the best chance of completing the Three Passes) and once again I can highly recommend Dream Heaven for personalised small group or solo trekking in Nepal.

    Everest High Passes Trek, Kathmandu Valley and Pokhara

    We spent in Nepal 16 days by trekking in the Himalaya from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and over the Cho-La and Renjo-La Passes. Unfortunately because of the broken ice bridge on the Khumbu Glacier we could not go over the Kongma-La Pass.

    After the trek in the mountains we visited the Kathmandu valley with the cities Pathan and Bhaktapur and the city of Pokhara near to the massive of Annapurna to the west of Kathmandu. It was our first trip to Nepal. All our stay in Nepal was perfectly prepared and organised by Dream Heaven Adventure company, which we found by planning our journey in the internet.

    We appreciate the managing director Mr. Suman´s endeavour as he fulfilled all our wishes we had had. Especially we thank to our trekking guide Mr. Huparaj for his recommendations and getting the gear before we leaved for the trek and to the both porters, all of them for their help and support in the mountains. We could really rely on them everywhere and each time.

    Further we could change our itinerary according to the weather and our condition. Because of the bad weather in Lukla we could not fly back to Kathmandu by plain, so thanks to our guide on the next day we finished our trek by flying helicopter, what a great experience. After coming back to Kathmandu the Dream Heaven Adventure company promptly organised for us our last week in Nepal.

    By visiting the Kathmandu valley we will never forget our tour guide Mr. Kumod for his general knowledge of the sites we visited and his enormous desire to show us the most we could manage in the two days.

    Also, the fly to Pokhara, the hotel there and the trip back to Kathmandu by car with a short stop in the city of Gorkha was very well organised and for us the next great experience in Nepal.

    If you are looking for a reliable company for organising your visit in Nepal we can warmly recommend you the Dream Heaven Adventure company. Our experiences we have made were only positive and we enjoyed our stay in Nepal.
