The Three passes Trek in Everest’s Khumbu Region is a challenging journey for trekkers seeking the thrills of a Himalayan adventure. From East to West the high mountain passes are the Kongma La (5527 m/18,135 ft), Cho La (5420 m/17,783 ft) and Renjo LA (5375m, 17,634 ft). If you are in good shape and looking  for something beyond the ordinary, then Everest’s Three Passes is ideal for you !

The Three Passes journey is an adventurous option in the Khumbu for people who are moderately fit and seeking an extra-ordinary challenge. The adventure includes all the mountain scenery that you can possibly take and more, with soaring mountains and alpine landscape surrounding you at every step. This strenuous trek is considered by some to be a best of Everest tour. It is designed to include panoramas of the famous peaks, including Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Makalu and many more with an experience of mountain villages, too, and hospitable Sherpa culture.

The first pass Kongma La (5527 m/18,135 ft) is the highest, and connects Chukhung with the Khumbu Valley that leads to Everest Base Camp. The next pass, the Cho La (5420 m/17.783 ft) includes the crossing of a small glacier. Crampons and an ice axe would be helpful but are not usually necessary. However, use caution and get reports from lodge owners and other travelers before attempting this pass. From the Cho La, the route reaches the Gokyo Valley with its serene mountain lakes alongside Nepal’s largest glacier, Ngozomba Glacier – this glacier will be unforgettably traversed! Enjoy the otherworldly atmosphere at the collection of hotels at Gokyo, followed by a climb to the third pass, the Renjo La Pass (5375m, 17,634 ft), and a descent into the remote Thame Valley. The fascinating journey over the Renjo La takes you through remote Sherpa Villages before revisiting Namche Bazaar. Then make a return down the Dudh Kosi Valley to Lukla for a flight or hike beyond to the road.

Non-stop mountain views along the way of the way of the Three Passes Trek include Everest and a feast of peaks jutting into the heavens. Trekkers often include Everest Base Camp in the Three Passes Trek to satisfy the chance to get as close as possible to the world’s highest mountain without being a climber. The direct views of the legendary Khumbu icefall are unforgettable. The three passes journey also offers two of the best viewpoints on earth, Kala Pattar (4250 m, 13,945 ft) and Gokyo Ri (5340 m, 17,519 ft), both with unobstructed views of Everest and the surrounding Himalayas and glacier valleys below.

Other highlights of the Three Passes Trek include the lovely lakes of Gokyo and charming Thame village with a Buddhist monastery perched above the town. The Sherpa villages in the region will allow you to witness a customary way of life there. Wildlife in the stark highlands includes musk deer, Himalayan thar, snow leopard, snow cock, pheasant and people even lay claim that the fabled yeti resides somewhere in the Khumbu.

People can begin the trek from Jiri, Shivalaya or Bhandar, after a daylomg bus ride. The hike in to the Khumbu adds another week to ten days to the journey but will help the acclimatization process and get your legs and lungs in shape, too. In fact, the walk in from Jiri has nough ups (and downs) to equal a climb of Everest itself if added together! Nowadays, most people opt to fly into the region by way of the mountain airport at Lukla. During the high season and because of occasional poor wather, flights can be delayed causing bottlenecks and limiting the flow of trekkers in and out of the region.

The trek to the Khumbu follows the narrow Dudh Kosi river valley to Namche Bazaar, gateway of the Khumbu Region. The settlement is located in a natural amphitheater overlooking a valley with the astonishing spectacle of the surrounding mountains. It splits away from the Everst Base Camp journey and heads into the breathtaking Chuukhung valley before surmounting the Kongma La and working west to cross a small glacier to  the Cho La and finally over the Renjo La. The whole journey offers non-stop jaw-dropping mountain scenery that will be a highlight of a lifetime.
