Everest Three Pass Trekking is one of the best trekking journeys in Nepal. Similarly, the Three Passes Trekking is difficult, intimidating, and enthralling all at the same time. Everest has become synonymous with the realm of adventure. This Everest three Pass Trekking in the Everest Region is the best adventure trek in the Himalayas.

In addition, this trek is the pinnacle of a Nepali wilderness trekking vacation. Kongma La Pass, Cho La Pass, and Renjo La Pass are three high passes that visitors will climb via. Similarly, these are three difficult passes in the Khumbu region that connect four valleys.

Likewise, the trip’s shining ornaments include the Chhukung Valley, Lobuche Valley, Gokyo Valley, and Thame Valley. Moreover, in Nepal, the detour is better known as the Khumbu Circuit Trekking.

To get through these difficult passes, you must be physically fit. However, the heavenly panorama of mountains, villages, and Himalayan landscape will bless you and provide relief from your tiredness. The voyage to the Three Passes begins with a flight to the world’s most remote airport, Lukla.

The Namche Bazaar may be reached by following the popular Everest base camp trekking track. You will arrive in the Chhukung Valley after taking your normal acclimatization breaks and passing through Tengboche and Dingboche. The Kong Ma La is the first pass to cover.

Furthermore, the trail can be tight and difficult at times. Visitors should follow the directions of the trekking guides, who are well-trained and experienced in dealing with such situations.

Three Pass Trekking List

Kongma La Pass

Three times After passing across the Kongma La Pass, the trek continues into Lobuche Valley (Khumbu Valley). Moreover, to go to Lobuche, we’ll have to pass the famed Khumbu Glaciers. We’ll ascend to the Everest Base Camp and Kalapather. These are some of the trip’s highlights.

Kalapather is a great vantage point for seeing the Khumbu region and the high Himalayas, including Mount Everest and the Khumbu Glaciers. The return route will take you to Dzongla, where you can apply for the trip’s second pass.

Cho la pass

Cho la pass is a well-known scenic route to take. Technically, it is more difficult than the other two passes. After passing through the pass, you will be rewarded with a magnificent panorama of the Gokyo Valley.

The panoramic vista of the High Himalayas will hypnotize you with its beauty. The Gokyo Valley’s three blue-turquoise lakes provide a tranquil setting. The vista of the Nagzompa glaciers is a thing of natural beauty.

Renjo la Pass

The Renjo la Pass is the best location for a panoramic view of the surrounding mountains. To get to Thame, you’ll have to trek down a steep incline. Before traveling to Namche, this is one of the greatest spots to visit the Sherpa settlement and Buddhist monastery. We will return to Lukla on our return route.
