The Everest three passes treks is a rare and challenging trek in Everest trekking region of Nepal. You get to cross three different passes, Renjo La at 5360m, Cho La at 5420m and Kongma La at 5535m, in a single trekking trail.
Beside these high passes, the trek offers the glimpses of spectacular landscapes in the Himalaya along with culture and tradition of Sherpa people. The trek acts as an aperture to traditional Sherpa villages and ‘gompas’ (monasteries), their mountain Buddhist culture and their sacred peaks and valleys.
The other major highlights of this trek are the Chhukhung valley, Chhukhung Ri peak, Ama Dablam base camp, Everest base camp, Kala Pattar and the Gokyo lakes. Enjoying sublime views from Gokyo Ri peak, you can cross the Renjo La to emerge in the pristine Thame valley which leads to the Nangpa La and Tibet.
