Everest Three Pass Trek
The Everest Three Pass Trek is one of the most popular treks in the Khumbu region, making a complete circuit high-level trek across 3 significant passes to link the valleys of Thame, Gokyo and Dingboche. From Namche Bazaar, we cross the course of the Bhote Khosi River towards Tibet before turning eastwards to cross the spectacular Renjo La (5340m). We then hike up-valley to reach Gokyo Valley, where we have a free day to trek up-valley to the ‘Fifth Lake’ and can climb to the top of Gokyo Ri. Next, crossing the Ngozumpa Glacier, we climb up and over the Cho La (5420m) before reaching Everest base camp and its dramatic viewpoint summit Kala Patar (5550m).
Finally, our walkout takes us through Kongma La (5535m) and continues our descent via Dingboche and Pangboche before returning to Namche Bazar and Lukla, our starting point. This makes it an ideal holiday for experienced trekkers looking to visit Everest base camp but wish to avoid crowds and experience authentic Sherpa culture.
