Everest Three Pass Trek

Everest Three Pass Trek, this guide covers the clockwise variation of the Three Passes Trek circuit by providing an in-depth itinerary, route maps also as answering questions on cost, packing, best times to trek, and more. The Everest Three Passes Trek to Everest Base Camp is arguably the foremost complete trek in Nepal because it covers most of the Everest region on its circular route. The trek is tougher than the classic Everest Base Camp Trek and its other variations because it involves traversing the three high passes that lend the trek its name – Renjo La, Cho La, and Kongma La – each over 5,000m. The trek begins within the popular start line of Lukla before heading north along the classic trek to Namche Bazaar. Here, the route veers west because it splits from the most trek and heads up the Dudh Koshi valley, where you’ll encounter the primary of the Three Passes – Renjo La (5,370m). After reaching the part, the trail descends to the idyllic Gokyo Lakes and further on to the village of Gokyo.

Everest Three Pass Trek, the route then turns east as you create your thanks to Everest Base Camp by crossing the second pass called Cho La Pass (5,420m). After the second pass, you’ll have the chance to explore the intricacies of Everest Base Camp life also absorbing a number of the simplest views of Everest and therefore the surrounding peaks once you climb the long-lasting viewpoint of Kala Patthar. Then conquer the Kongma La (5535m), end-route to Lobuche and Everest Base Camp. Return to Duglha and take the long route up the Cho La (5368m) and steep descent to Thangnak. Cross the Ngozumpa Glacier and head for Gokyo: and a day of rest to climb Gokyo Ri for superb views of Nepal’s longest glacier of Cho Oyo and therefore the Everest range.
