Traverse three of the highest mountain passes in the world with Roar Himalaya Adventure! The Three Passes Trek is rapidly gaining a reputation as the most scenic trek in Nepal. Reserved for true adventurers and mountain lovers, the Three Passes Trek is the ultimate Everest region circuit. As the name suggests, the trail traverses three high passes in the region, each well over 5000 meters. In addition to the crossing the passes, the itinerary makes a stop at Everest Base Camp (5364 meters) and Kala Patthar (5545 meters), two must-see spots in the Everest region.
The sheer majesty of the Three Passes Trek cannot be understated. The epic three-week journey takes you over the Renjo La Pass (5345m), Cho La Pass (5420m), and the Kongma La Pass (5535m), as well as several other astonishing lookout points. Each mountain pass provides a distinct perspective of the astonishing lunar-like landscape of the Everest region. Neither words nor photographs do this trek justice; you have to see it for yourself!
The thrill begins from Day 1. The trek starts with an exhilarating flight from Kathmandu to Tenzing – Hillary Airport in Lukla – said to be the most dangerous airport in the world. Then, follow the lively Dudh Koshi River valley past Sherpa villages and diverse forests, where brilliant rhododendrons bloom in the springtime. Stop in Namche Bazaar, the trade and tourism center of the Khumbu region. Bakeries, shops, and guest houses line the bustling streets.
From Lungden, we make it over th Renjo La Pass to reach Gokyo. You will never see anywhere like Gokyo ever again. The tourqoiuse waters are mind-blowing. Of course, we must climb to Gokyo Ri (5357 meters), for unbelievable views of Mount Everest, Makalu, and more. Second is the Cho La Pass, where the distinctive peak of Ama Dablam lies right before your eyes. The third and final pass is the Kongma Pass, the highest of the three. Not a single day on the trek disappoints and the adventure never stops. After the Kongma La Pass, we begin our descend back towards Lukla to conclude the journey.
To take the Three Passes Trek, you must have previous trekking experience and a moderate degree of fitness. Most important, though, is your will and determination to complete the trek. Our itinerary includes several acclimatization days, which are necessary to having a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable trek.
Book the Three Passes Trek all throughout the year. Though the trek is available anytime, certain seasons provide the best weather. In the springtime (March to May), the rhododendrons are blooming and scenery is lush. During autumn (September to November), skies are clearest and mountain views are best. Summer (rainy season) and winter do not provide the best trekking conditions, but on the other hand, you can enjoy more solitude on the trail. If you have any questions, please contact us!
