This Everest Three High Passes Trek is strenuous trekking trail compared to the popular Everest Base Camp Trek with two high passes: the Renjo La (5345m) and another Cho La (5420m). These three passes can be perfect for those looking for some serious trekking but do not have much of technical knowledge in climbing. Passing through the two rugged high passes this trek is less traveled due to its strenuous nature of trek that takes us slowly through the Sherpa villages and Yak pastures before reaching Gokyo Valley via Renjo. The view of Everest from here is priceless and worth all the hard walks. Finally taking you to the Everest Base Camp, this trek like its name is the Ultimate Everest Trek.

Everest three high passes trek also take you to Namche Bazaar which is popular with trekkers. Mostly used for altitude acclimatization where people stay for a night or two to acclimatize themselves to the thinning oxygen levels in the air, this is also a getaway to most of the treks to Base Camp and other Expedition in this area. The town has a number of lodgings and store catering to the needs of visitors as well as a number of internet cafes, making it on few places in the region where trekkers can access the internet.

High Passes trek will also take you to Khumjung which is another famous village in this area. Khumjung village is located in the Khumbu region of Sagarmatha National Park, a world heritage site. It lies at the elevation of 3970m above sea level and situated near Mt. Khumbila (5761m.) which is believed to be a sacred mountain and thus no attempts to climb this mountain is made. A monastery in Khumjung also boasts of having a Yeti scalp and is one of the attractions in this village. With communication such as internet and mobiles available, this village is one of the main attractions in this region. The view from Renjo La is one of its kind where far down you see Gokyo Valley with Gokyo lake with some lodges around. The panoramic view of Mt. Everest from this area is something where you can get from nowhere else in this region. Cho La is another high pass in this trek that is location 5420m above sea level that connects to the village of Dzongla (4830m) to the east and the village of Thangnak (4700m) to the west.

Passport / visa
A valid permit is required for most areas in Nepal, which we will obtain upon your arrival. We will require one working days and two passports size photographs. There are two major permits, which are National Park permits and special regional permits for restricted area permits (Upper Mustang, Manaslu, Dolpa, etc.) .

Important information
Always carry Nepalese rupees in small bills on your trek. The amount to be cared depends on the area and the duration of the trek. A guideline for this will be presented during our trek briefing. Money will only be required for the purchase of soft/hard bottled drinks and souvenirs along the way. Other money and valuables should be kept in a safe deposit box in your hotel in Kathmandu. Altitude sickness if a serious consideration if you are climbing or trekking in Nepal and it’s essential that you investigate the causes, symptoms and treatment of altitude sickness before you travel to Nepal. There are approximately three deaths per year in Nepal from altitude sickness, but with the right precautions there is no reason why you should become one of these statistics. Acclimatization’s the word used to describe the adjustments your body makes as it ascends. You should adjust your schedule so that you average no more than 400 meters per day of ascent above 3,000 meters. If you fail to allow time for acclimatization, you may develop symptoms of Attitude mountaineering System. The AMS may be mild enough to go away with a day’s rest or if ignored may lead to death. All that is required to ensure a safe trek is basic awareness of AMS, and a willingness to rest or descend if you develop symptoms. As a result of the growing awareness of altitude problems there is only one death from AMS in Nepal out of every 30,000 trekkers and climbers. Even these deaths would be avoidable if everyone knew how to respond to AMS. There are no reliable figures for casualties among porters.
