Everest 3 high pass trekking is thrilling, technical and one of the most adventurous routes in the Everest region offering three major high passes Kong ma-La pass (5535m), Chhola pass (5420m) and Renjola pass (5446m). The journey also embarks the grace of pristine Gokyo Lakes and awe inspiring view of gorgeous jewel of the Himalayas including four 8000m high mountains (Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Cho Oyu and Lhotse) from the Gokyo Ri. Everest base camp (5380m) standing in the massive Khumbu glacier, takes you possibly closest to the highest mountains. Walking up some steep trails, Kalapatthar (5445m) offers you the spectacular close up view of Everest. The enchanting view of other highest ranges provides solace to the exhausted trekkers.

In our trek, among the three passes, Kong ma-La pass is the highest that takes us to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. The walk moves on to Gokyo via glaciated Chhola pass and finally we go through Renjola pass to reach lukla via Namche.

The trek is enriched by both natural and cultural aspect of the Everest region. Besides the mountains, Lakes, Glacier, Flora and Faunas, the place is also well-known for the indigenous Himalayan Sherpa tradition. The old monasteries and museums, prayer flags and wheels resembling the Buddhist spirituality, kind hospitality of the Sherpa communities add cheery to the top of whole journey.
