Everest Three High Passes Trek

This is one of the renowned trekking routes in the Everest region. Tibetan traders used this route for centuries. Renjo La Pass (5388 m, 17,677 ft.), Kongma La Pass (5535 m, 18,159 ft.) and Cho La Pass (5380 m, 17,650 ft.) are included in the route, and crossing these three passes will certainly be the highlight of the trip. The altitude gains during the trek make for a tough but spectacular and well earned hike.  The gateway of the Everest Three High Pass Trek is Lukla, and the route continues into Sagarmatha National Park. There will be opportunities to view rare plants and maybe even animals conserved in the National Park. The entire trekking route is panoramic and will traverse landscapes from the low lands to the high lands of Everest region.

The trek requires long days of trekking and the route is difficult on narrow, zigzag trails. While trekking experience is preferred but not required, participants should be in excellent physical and aerobic condition.
