Everest High Pass

A challenging trek with multiple passes and Lake with amazing Everest region mountains views.

Three pass treks is an epic journey that takes you over some of the highest mountains passes in the world. It stitches together the best of the Everest base camp and Gokyo treks and two of the most rewarding side treks in the lower Khumbu region. Taking 17 to 20 days in total, this trek is ultimate Everest circuit, rising from Lukla to Chukung, crossing the Kongmal-la to Lobuche and Everest base camp, continuing over Chola pass to Gokyo, then crossing then Renjo la to Thame and Namche Bazar.

Crossing the three pass is not technically difficult but these entire trails climb above 5000m so acclimatization is essential.

Kongma La (5,535m): Kongma La pass located in Lobuche village (west) and Chukung village (east) but the western side of the route is steeper than the eastern side.  The entire pass route is indicated by the prayer flags flapping between the mountains.  To cross Kongma la in a single day, you must start at first light from Chukung, and it takes 5 hours after you left from Chukung. From the pass, you’ll be rewarded with incredibly panoramic mountains view of the lakes and glacial landscapes with 5th tallest mount Makalu, Ama-Dablam, Lobuche peak with entire Everest region of peaks.

Cho La (5,380m):  This pass requires crossing the Cho La Glacier, which will likely be holding snow and ice. In a good weather condition, you can cross the Chola with no specialist equipment but warm clothing is essential. It is most frequently crossed by many trekkers in the Everest Region. The western side of the pass is much steeper than the eastern side, but the pass can do from both sides Dzongla (east side) or Dragnag (west side).

Renjo La (5,388m): Renjo la pass is considered easiest pass among the three passes, it is connected with the Gokyo Lakes, where the eye-popping vista awaits. If the skies are clear, we’ll see the rooftops of Gokyo glinting distantly on the shore of the lake beneath the grey smear of the Ngo-Zompa glacier and the sawtooth peaks of Everest, Lhotse, Chola-tse and Tabuche. Renjo la pass can do after or before crossing Kongma-la and Cho-la.
