Trip Overview

Everest High Pass Trek which is also know as Everest Three Passes Trek. Do not go beyond your limits, but if you can, then you should go for Everest Three High Passes Trek. Would you like to know their heights? Here it is Kongma La (5,535/18,159 ft), Cho La (5420m/17,782ft), and Renjo La (5,340m/17,520ft), and you have to cross each of these. The highlights of these treks are Everest (8,848m) Lhotse (8,516m), Ama Dablam (6,812m), and Makalu (8,516m). Well, these are some, and in front of these mountains, you will feel like singing the glory of nature.

Just like in other Everest Treks, you will also reach the largest village of the Sherpa people that is in Nepal. The trekking trail not only takes you to this village, but it also takes you to the Buddhist monasteries. Some are small, some are big, but you will reach the most famous and oldest monastery of the Everest Region. However, during Everest Three High Passes Trek, you will experience the mixture of adventure, wilderness, and the highest altitudes. Ice and glaciers are where you walk, or you walk by their sides, and all of these landscapes are in Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
