19 Days Everest Three High passes Trekking

A FEAST OF FEATURES MAKES THIS THE ULTIMATE ADVENTURE.

MAKE THIS YOUR DREAM COME TRUE ESCAPE TO THIS AMAZING REGION.

This physically demanding 19 day trek has everything you could possibly wish to see in the Everest region; crossing three high altitude passes - Renjo la (5388 m), Cho La (5380 m) and Kongma La (5535 m); picturesque valleys - Khumbu, Bhotekoshi, Gokyo, and Imja Tse; and unimaginable views and ascents of  Mt. Gokyo Ri (5483m), Kala Pathar (5545m) and Chukung (5550m) before reaching the fabled Everest Base Camp – the doorway to the world’s highest mountain – Mt. Everest (8848m).

The list of places to see is extensive that also includes the vivid turquoise blue Gokyo Lakes (4,700–5,000m); Gokyo Ri (5357m); visit the seldom visited and isolated trading route between Nepal and Tibet -Nangpa La Pass; the large Sherpa village of Marlung (4260m) and the Thame Tibetan Buddhist Monastery – the oldest in the Khumbu region and thought to have its beginnings in the 17th century. The monastery is perched 200 meters above Thame on the side of Sumdur Mountain and offers some extraordinary views of the Himalayas.

There is no better and comprehensive trek available in the Everest region. This trek is ideally suited to the more physically fit who wishes to go a little further to far-flung places and be challenged by the high altitude 3 passes. The best time of year to do this trek is in autumn (Sept to November) and spring (March to May) with less likelihood of being snowed-in and unable to complete the trek.

Lukla is the ideal starting point, but if you have more time then you can start from Jiri, Lukla, Phaplu or Salleri. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking is happy to customize this trek to suit your time schedule.
 

Alert: There will be a slight change in the itinerary, especially the days when you take the domestic flights. In April & May and October & November of 2019, the government shifted the operation base for flights to and from Lukla (This is the actual starting point of the trek) from Kathmandu to Manthali, a town 4 to 5 hours drive away from Kathmandu. As a result, anyone who signed up for any Everest trek or climb had to go to Manthali to catch their flight. They moved the base because of renovation and high air traffic for Kathmandu's airport which is also the only international airport in Nepal. This change in the airport will continue in 2020 as well. Though right now there have been direct flights, we expect from March the airport will be shifted.

ITINERARY

Expand All
A representative from Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will meet you at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport and drive you to your hotel. On arrival at your hotel, and after check-in, there will be a briefing regarding your Everest Three Passes trek. Our representative will provide you with a route map and other useful information, such as lodges where we stay and some do’s and don’ts. Tonight we will formally welcome you with a group dinner.
After breakfast in your hotel, we drive to the domestic terminal of Kathmandu Airport for the 35-minute flight to Lukla landing on a precarious strip of tarmac overlooking the Dudh Koshi River. Today we meet our porters and then have lunch at the Yeti Mountain Home Lodge and then begin with a relatively easy trek descending to Phakding. This trek takes us through farming lands of the Sherpas passing through several villages along the way. Nowadays, many Sherpas make their living solely from trekking. Along the trail, we can stop at one of many tea houses for refreshments and a chat with the locals. We will also pass by many mani stones (a form of prayer) which are stones carved in Tibetan script, and of course, you will see many strings of prayer flags along the trail. We then arrive at our lodge on the banks of the Dudh Koshi River where we stay the night. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Today the trail takes us through a beautifully scented pine forest along the banks of the Dudh Koshi River crossing several suspension bridges along the way. The most well known of these suspension bridges is the Hillary Suspension Bridge – named after Sir Edmund Hillary, the first man (along with Sherpa Tensing to climb Everest). Our trail gives us a view of Mt. Thamserku (6618 m) before passing through the small villages of Benkar, Chumoa & Monjo just prior to the entrance to Sagarmatha National Park. The final village we pass is Jorsale before ascending through forests and crossing several bridges until we reach the head of the Dudh Koshi and Bhote Koshi rivers. A steep climb of about 2 hours gives us our first glimpse of Mt. Everest just above the Lhotse-Nuptse ridge. Arriving at Chautara we can again reach for our cameras and take in the views. We continue on for about 1.5 hours to reach Namche Bazaar, well known as the gateway to Mt. Everest and the main trading hub of this region – the Bagmati Zone. Tonight we stay at Namche Bazaar. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
In order to reach higher altitudes, we will spend two days acclimatizing. Health experts recommend we stay active and moving during the rest day. Today we can choose between taking a hike to Thame or visit Khunde, or alternatively relax and explore Namche Bazaar – the home to many Sherpas employed in the trekking business. Namche Bazaar is the main hub of the Everest (Khumbu) region with government offices, ATMs, Internet cafes, shops, restaurants, a bakery, and of course a colorful market each Friday evening and Saturday. If we decide to take a vertical trek during the day it will help us to properly acclimatize. Our guides take us to the Tourist Visitor Center near the headquarter of the Sagarmatha National Park where we can see a variety of artifacts related to the first Everest climbers, learn about the Sherpa culture and the numerous flora and fauna of the Everest region. Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking route divert west; contouring the hillside reaching the ridge looking down at Namche and the trek follows the gradual winding path up the Bhote Kosi River valley, once a popular trading route into Tibet. In Thame, we can see the excellent views of Teng Kangpoche and Kwangde and to the north is the Nangpa-la 5,710m pass leading to Tibet. Overnight at Thame. Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Included.
This is a day where we trek through a remote Sherpa village and Himalayan meadows we’ll continue to gain altitude as we trek through a beautiful and isolated area. Overnight at the Lungden Tea House. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Included.
Today's nearly 5-6 hrs walk takes us to reach the top of Renjo overlooking a great view of Mt. Cho-Oyu world's 6th highest mountain which straddles the border with Tibet and Nepal on reaching the top the first pass of this great trek traversing over 5,345m. Overnight at Tea House. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Included.
Very early in the morning, about a 2 hours hike up to the Gokyo Ri (5,360m) for the breathtaking view of sunrise atop the mountain with a view of the four highest mountains including Mt. Everest. This will be an unforgettable memory and enjoy around the top. We have great memories and stroll back an hour to Gokyo for breakfast then take a rest and relax all day. Overnight at Gokyo. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Included.
After having a late breakfast, we trek down to Thangnak for overnight passing through the second lake and walk on the Nagjumpa glacier and will arrive at Thangnak. Overnight anThagnag. breakfast lunch and Dinner Included.
Today, Early in the morning we walk in the high passes and one of the more difficult days to cross the Cho-la Pass (5420m). Therefore we must have breakfast very early in the morning or carrying a packed breakfast, then climb up. The pass is not terribly difficult but it is steep and involves a glacier cross on the eastern side of the top. After crossing the Cho-la pass, the trail reaches Dzongla where we can stop overnight at a teahouse with basic dorm rooms and cozy dining. Overnight at Dzonga. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner included.
After having breakfast, the trail goes up to Lobuche. We keep on our trek along the moraine of the glacier and surrounding scenery of Chola Che. The Labuche Peak is the first within view of Kala Pathar (5,550m) and Pumori is also along the way. We will be in Labuche before lunch. You will be relieved after a long walk to get here. Overnight at Lobuche. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Included.
Today After breakfast, the trek continues gently climbing and sometimes directly ascending to a nearby glacier. The trail to Gorakshep is rocky and windy but it offers good views of Mt. Pumori and there are beautiful views of the Everest base camp. After lunch, we ready ourselves for today’s adventure to the targeted destination and continue our trek towards the Everest Base Camp and to the Khumbu Ice-fall. The path from here can be misleading. Make sure to follow the lead Sherpa since every year the trail changes due to the movements of the glacier. The walk is quite and strenuous due to the high altitude and thin air. The walk passes over rocky dunes and moraine and streams until you reach the base camp. If you are trekking during the high expedition season it may feel like a city up there. It takes 2-3 hrs to get to base camp and after a grand time here go back over the journey to Gorekshep for the overnight at lodge. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner Included.
Very early in the morning, we will have to climb up 2 hours to Kalapather for a 360-degree view of the mountain peaks. When reaching the top, you will feel joyful as you achieve the moment that you have been dreaming of since the beginning of your journey. A small rocky peak “Kalapathar/Kalapattar” offers you beyond imagination views. The panoramic view from this spot is something to cherish and you feel it’s worth the hard climb up to here to feel at the top of the world. You can also see the Everest Base camp down below on the moraine of Khumbu glacier and many mountainous sceneries such as Pumori (7,145m), Lingtren (6,695m), Khumbutse (6,623m), Changtse (7,550m), Nupse (7879m), and even Everest itself.

GOOD TO KNOW

Accommodation

You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom - until Namche which is a thriving town seeing many more tourists and a greater range of accommodation. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.

Meals during the trek

 In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the region are potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.

Transportation

We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.

Physical fitness

This is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake. 
Remember – The better prepared – the more enjoyable your trek!

The level is more difficult than other trekking programmers. However, Sherpa Expedition and Trekking tries its best to make the journey as easy, adventurous and joyful as possible.
Bottled water is easily available at a low cost. But you can not use plastic bottles in the Everest region. So, they do not sell plastic bottled mineral water. You need to drink mineral water or boiled filtered water in those areas. It is better to use water purification drops and tablets which you can either bring from your own country or buy in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking also provides water purifier pills.
