About Trip:

The Everest 3 Passes Trek takes us to some of the highest mountain passes of the world and is the ultimate trekking tour of the Everest region. The route leads us through the popular Everest trails as well as other hidden unique gems of the Khumbu/Everest region. On this challenging trekking adventure, we will cross the three rugged high passes in the region – Kongma La (5,535m), Cho La (5420m) and Renjo La (5340m). The Everest 3 Passes Trek is the ideal choice for the true mountain-adventurer looking for a challenging and thrilling trek in the mighty Khumbu/Everest region. Trekkers will have the spectacular and humbling feeling of being surrounded by 4 of the 14 highest mountains in the world as well as countless +7000m peaks. Due to the high altitude passes, the trek is physically demanding but we will be rewarded with properly some of the best mountain vistas in the entire world. At Nepal Trekking Experts, we love to challenge ourselves and The Everest 3 Passes Trek is an incomparable, epic journey and an unforgettable accomplishment to overcome!

The Everest 3 Passes trek has several options for departure, but the one we recommend in this case is from Kathmandu, from where trekkers will have an exciting flight in a Twin Otter plane to the mountain airstrip of Lukla, giving us a glimpse of the mighty mountains which we are going to conquer. From Lukla we will follow in the footsteps of renowned mountaineers and cross our first pass of Kongma La (5535m) before we move our way up to the Everest Base Camp (5364m). Exploring beautiful sun rise in the morning with 360 degree amazing Himalaya vistas from Kalapatthar (5545m) add extra valu on it. Instead of retracting down the same trail from where we came, we will now head towards our next challenge of crossing the remaining two high passes, offering us the true feeling of being on top of the world. The second of the three passes is Cho La, which we will cross before reaching Gokyo (4790m), one of the highest located settlements in the world. Gokyo is known for its sparkling, crystal clear blue and green lakes which comprise the highest fresh water lake-system in the world and is one of Nepal’s most memorable sights. Apart from the pristine lakes of Gokyo, we have the opportunity to hike our way up to the view point of Gokyi Ri (5360m) for a stunning sunrise and arguably the clearest view of Mt. Everest (8848m) and Makalu (8485m). We will encounter numerous stunning high-altitude lakes on our way as well as pristine and well-preserved Sherpa culture. After crossing our ultimate destination of the Renjo La, we will descend into one of the old trading routes to Tibet, the Thame Valley, before we reach the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazaar and then head to Lukla.

Trekkers should obtain TIMS card and Sagarmatha National Park permits to trek Everest region. For further detail please feel free visit our blog Nepal trekking permits and fees or contact us

Volveré a Nepal para subir el Mera Peak y lo haré con Rajesh

Volveré a Nepal para subir el Mera Peak y lo haré con Rajesh

Rating:  

Organice el trek por Nepal totalmente por mi cuenta, buscando y preguntando en varias agencias a través de Internet. Finalmente, por cuestión de precios y recomendaciones de otros viajeros con los que coincidí en Groenlandia, me decidí por Rajesh... Y acerté. Planifique junto con Raj los sitios que quería ver de acuerdo a los días disponibles, aproximadamente el "Everest 3 passes trekking", pero aun así cuando quise adaptar algo sobre la marcha lo hicimos sin problemas. Hice el trek con Rabin, el hermano de Raj, y un porteador. Ambos buena gente. Todo fue rodado: los tea house donde dormíamos y cenábamos eran estupendos, cualquier problema se solucionaba de inmediato aunque realmente nada se pudo considerar un problema, había comunicación diaria entre Rabin y Raj, habilitaron las etapas para conseguir la mejor aclimatación posible... Técnicamente un trek perfecto, inolvidable. Pero ademas de las excelentes sensaciones del trek me quede con el trato con Rajesh. Llegar a su oficina y disfrutar de un café, de un par de cervezas o de algo de comida nepalí, picante como ella sola, mientras echas unas risas y charlas sobre el viaje, antes y después de hacerlo, es impagable. Como digo en el titulo de mi comentario: volveré a Nepal para subir el Mera Peak y lo haré con Raj.
