Review

Me and my girlfriend came to Nepal without any preparation so we were unknown about what to do and where to go, it was difficult to plan a tour in a short time so we took help from My Everest Trip. They helped us to decide the trip along with taking responsibility of everything. We had a great time at Everest Three Pass Trek. A flight from Kathmandu to Lukla then trekking from Namche Bazaar and reaching to Everest Base camp along with the beauties of the region, exploring five Gokyo Lakes everything feels like a dream. We were really happy with the help provided by the company and promise to back soon.

After a long discussion with my husband, we decided to take the Everest Three Pass trek on our 5th anniversary. The three high passes including Kongma La, Cho La, and Renjo La were really challenging. The tough ascents and descents weren't easy for my physical and mental energy levels. But, each pass was a victory that left us with a powerful feeling of achievement. It was always my dream to trek in Everest Base Camp and to reach Kala Patthar once in my life which got fulfilled in my fifth anniversary. My Everest Trip made our journey easy by providing us with every single facility at each step.

FAQs

What is the Best Time for Three Passes Trek

Best Time for Three Passes Trek

When considering trekking the Everest three-pass Trek route, it’s important to keep in mind the weather conditions. Throughout most of the year, the route experiences low precipitation and temperatures, high winds, and snowfall. Therefore, it’s recommended to plan your trip during the spring or autumn seasons when the weather is more favorable. During this time, you will be able to witness the breathtaking views of the Everest area along with the diverse wildflowers. However, trekking the three passes during the winter season is nearly impossible due to the extreme cold temperatures that can drop as low as -19°C. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a great place to visit, Kathmandu is always a fantastic option.

Can We Do the Everest Three-Pass Trek Solo

Everest Three-Pass Trek Solo

The Everest Three High Pass offers a lifetime experience that many seek, particularly a thrilling solo trek. However, for the Three Passes Trek, it is advised not to trek alone due to various factors. The unpredictable weather conditions and snowy terrain can cause one to get lost without a guide. The trek requires passing through different peaks with glaciers, and any mistake can lead to significant issues. Therefore, we recommend not taking a solo trip for the Three Pass Trek.

Do We Need Trekking Gear For Everest 3-Pass Trek

If there is snow in the high passes, it may be necessary to use trekking gear such as axes, ropes, and crampons. Your guide will provide you with this equipment before the trip if needed. However, if the weather is good, this gear may not be necessary, and mountain climbing skills are not required.

Additional Information

The Everest Three Pass Trek through three passes route is an adventurous hiking trail covering the wide mountainous range and typical Sherpa culture. On this trek, You have to cross three passes, i.e. Renjo La Pass, Chola Pass, and Kongma La Pass, which are prime attractions of this trek. Read the Full Everest Trek Guide.

Everest Three Passes Trek Route

Everest High Pass Trek in Lukla is the entry point of tours in the Everest region. A 45-minute flight from Kathmandu to Lukla drops you before the Mountain. After arriving at the Lukla, you will trek towards Phakding and Namche Bazaar by crossing the scenic beauty of villages and several suspension bridges. We visit many historic places on the Namche, such as Khumjung village, Khunde twin village, and Hillary School.

After Namche, you will have to trek towards, i.e. Renjo la pass (5420 meters), the first among three passes we cross. We get here by Thame, Marulung, and Lungden. You can reach Thame by following the Bhote Koshi River, where you spend the night. To reach Lungden From Thame, we cross a more complex and challenging trail. From Renjo La Pass, you can see, The Gokyo Lake system and panoramic view of numerous Himalayan peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, and Ama Dablam.

The next destination will be Gokyo Ri (5,483m) which is famous for viewing the highest mountains in the world – Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Makalu (8,485m), and Cho Oyu (8,188m). The further trek takes you to the Cho La Pass (5420m), bypassing the Ngozumpa Glacier, the largest glacier in the Himalayas of Nepal. To reach Cho La Pass, you have to cross several crevices.

You can reach Kongma La Pass after passing Lobuche, joining the classic EBC trek route. During this trek, there will be many glaciers, mountains, and moraines to face. Following the spectacular views from the Kongma-La, the path descends to Dingboche, where you may either go up to Chhukung–Island Peak or descend to Tengboche and continue your trip to Lukla.

Everest 3 High Pass Trekking Difficulty

Everest three-pass trek takes you to face different challenges. These passes are among the most rugged and physically demanding peaks in the Everest area. One must have robust physical and mental health to cross the high passes. A few months of cardio before the trip prepares you to walk 6 to 7 hours daily. Since the entire route is over 150 km, we walk 10 to 15 km daily. And that too with a backpack (if you don’t hire a porter). And that’s not a joke.

Another major challenge of the Everest 3 high pass trek is its altitude. Right from Namche, you start to walk at 4,000 meters. The highest passes are at 5,500 meters above sea level. You may experience breathing difficulties as you ascend to a greater altitude. The amount of oxygen becomes thinner at higher altitudes. As a result, Acute Mountain Sickness may be a possibility. Symptoms like headaches, nausea, diarrhea, shortness of breath, etc., are expected at a much higher altitude. It would be best if you were accompanied by an expert at MyEveresrTrip and had a very wisely planned Everest 3 high pass Trek itinerary.

If you are looking for an easier option, go for Everest Short Trek

Views From Everest Three High Pass Trek

During your trek, you must face Kalapatthar, a small mountain peak. As the monsoon begins, the surroundings may become more slippery and murky due to heavy rainfall, limiting your trek.

Trekking during winter is drastically challenging due to heavy snowfall, which blocks the route. So we recommend you not to go there during winter. The difficulty level is minimal during the spring; this season, you will get the opportunity to please your eyes with the scenic beauty of blooming wildflowers.

Everest Base Camp Trek vs Three Passes Trek

Everest Base Camp and Three Passes are famous for their breathtaking views, versatile landscapes, and distinctive geological characteristics. However, despite their hundreds of Pros, trekkers face several obstacles to the finish line.

Three Passes Trek vs Everest Base Camp Trek – Weather

Both treks are high-altitude hikes, and the weather is unpredictable due to severe changes in a short period. The three-pass tour has a restricted weather window most of the time, so you may only be able to walk during the transparent season, but The classic EBC trek is open almost any time of the year. YOu can see Everest in the off-season on an Everest Helicopter Tour.

Everest Base Camp Trek vs Three Passes Trek-Cost

The average cost for both the trek depends upon many factors. In comparison, the three-pass trek cost more than the EBC trek. Around 1500$ to 2000$ for three passes trek and 1300$ for an EBC trek everywhere. MyEverestTrek Three Pass trek package is $1875, and Everest Base Camp is $1320. If you trek in larger groups, your trek cost may be below. As you have to trek towards higher altitudes in the peak season (Spring and Autumn), fewer accommodation options are available, which may cost more. Many discounts are available in the off-season.

Everest Base Camp vs Three Passes Trek-Difficulty

The difficulty level is high in the tree passes trek as you have to face moving glaciers, but not in the EBC trek. Chances of an avalanche may affect your hike in a three-pass trek. Traveling to remote areas with steep mountains during your hike would be best. The trekking route consists of various zigzagged and snow-covered peaks and may limit your trial to three-pass treks.

Everest Base Camp vs Three Passes Trek-Crowd

Everest base camp is the most visited place around the Everest area and is more crowded than Everest Three Pass Trek. Trekkers from around the world visit Everest base camp, thus making it crowded. Accommodation and food may be a problem in EBC due to more trekkers on the journey. The pass route is undoubtedly the best option if you need a peaceful space.
