Short of climbing the mountain itself, the Three Pass Trek is the ultimate Mount Everest experience. Taking you deep into the Khumbu region of Nepal, this trek will offer you the most stunning views possible of the world’s highest mountain, and introduce you to the rich culture of the Sherpa people who call this region home. If you’re looking to learn more about Nepal, and want to push past the standard Base Camp trek, the Three Passes is for you.
What the adventure involves
Elite Exped’s Three Passes Trek takes in all the highlights of the Khumbu region of Nepal, including Everest Base Camp, and three high alpine passes at Renjo La, Cho La and Kongma La, that take you over 5,000m above sea level.
Beginning in Kathmandu, we explore the temples, stupas and busy bazaars of the Nepalese capital before catching a plane to Lukla, one the most scenic flights in the world. From here, we head out on the same route as the Everest Base Camp trek, taing in the Khumbu Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar, the monastery village of Tengboche, and climbing up to 5,545m above sea level to reach Kala Patthar, from where you will have a stunning view of Mount Everest itself.
