About Everest Three High Passes Trek

The Everest High Passes Trek covers Three major hills to cross; that's why it's also famous as the Everest 3 Passes Trek. It is the most adventurous Trekking trip in the Khumbu-Everest Himalayas and goes clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Trekking to the Everest Three Passes begins from Lukla after taking a short scenic flight to Lukla from Kathmandu or Ramechhap (Manthali). You stay with the same Everet Base Camp Trek itinerary until Namche Bazaar for the first three days of this trip, even if you are taking clockwise or anti-clockwise routes.

This Adventure Everest Three Passes Trek offers all the attractions of the Everest Himalayas, such as iconic high mountains, captivating landscapes, attractive valleys, charming nature, pristine lakes, ancient Buddhist monasteries and monuments, and more. If you are adventurous and go to the mountain regions, often spending around Three Weeks in Nepal, this Trek can be the best for you. Now, let’s have some information on two different Trekking routes of the Everest Three High Passes Trek here:

Counter-Clockwise Route for the Everest Three Passes Trek

The Counter-Clockwise Trekking Itinerary of the Everest High Passes Trek is comparably easier than the Clockwise one. This route goes to Everest Base Camp first, then to the Gokyo Lakes and Thame later. At the start of this Anti-Clockwise Everest Three Passes Trek from Lukla to Namche Bazaar, the same itinerary goes right towards Tengboche Hill on the fourth day.

You go to Dingboche and Chhukung and go over the Kongma La pass to cross the first hill of the Three Big Hills. Now, you Trek to Everest Base Camp and go over the Cho La Pass to visit Gokyo Lakes and Gokyo Ri. After spending a few nights in Gokyo, you go over Renjo La and reach the Himalayan hidden valley (Thame) before meeting Namche Bazaar. Then, you Trek to Lukla to fly out to Kathmandu at the end of the trip. For the detailed Itinerary of the Anti-Clockwise Everest Three Passes Trek Itinerary, check our package’s Itinerary section.

Everest High Passes: Clockwise vs. Anti-Clockwise Route

You can find two different Trekking itineraries for the Everest High Passes, taking Clockwise and Anti-Clockwise routes, online. It might make it difficult to choose the Route. What are the differences between these two routes of the Everest Three Passes? Which Route is more difficult to take? Check them out below:

The counter-Clockwise Route is easier with less climbing than the Clockwise Route of the Trek. You can see the altitude variation in the Itineraries between these two routes. If you take the Anit-Clockwise trail, you do not miss visiting the world’s highest mountain base camp, but if you get tired from the first pass, you may miss the chance of going to Everest Base Camp from the Clockwise route.

Everest Three Passes Trek Cost

The Cost of the Everest Three Passes depends on the services offered, length, and group size. Hiring just a guide costs less than the all-inclusive one, but the expenses are similar to the full board at the end of the Trek, even if you pay for food and lodges in the mountains.

It Costs 950 USD–1550 USD for a single trekker, but the costs might be less if you book this trip in a group. Check the Trek Cost for the Everest High Passes according to the group size below:

Preparation for Adventure Treks and Everest High Passes

Crossing the Three High Passes is difficult, so you must be physically fit and mentally prepared for this Trek. Make it your mindset to face any difficulties you might encounter on the High Pass Trail. Mind control is for the body, so if you make your mind strong and think, I can do it. Then, it makes you more comfortable.

After the mental preparation, you must be physically fit for this adventurous trek. Visit somewhere in the Himalayas at high altitudes above 4000m a couple of times, such as the Annapurna Base Camp Trek in Nepal, for altitude practice.

Start hiking regularly, or at least once a week, on the uphill and downhill trails for a few hours with 5–6 Kg of weight on your back. You can also do some physical exercise and juggling every day for about a month and do leg exercises like thigh, knee, calf, and ankle. You have many uphill and downhill trails for many days, so this type of trail can cause body and leg pain if you are not a regular hiker or have not done any physical exercises.

Trekking Gear for Everest High Passes

The trekkers who plan this adventure trek already know how to pack trekking gear well because regular trekkers dare to do this. Having nice, quality equipment is crucial to a successful mountain trip. You can pack some regular trekking gear as you do for other mountain treks, but you might need to pack some extra equipment for the Everest Three Passes Trek. Check them out below:

  • Duffel bag or rucksack
  • Daypack
  • Thermal layers
  • Breathable underwear
  • Trekking shirts (long and short, according to the season)
  • Trekking trousers (long and short, according to the season)
  • Windproof jacket
  • Windproof trousers
  • Fleece Jacket
  • High-neck shirts
  • Down jacket
  • Winter gloves
  • Light gloves
  • Sun hat
  • Winter hat
  • Buff
  • Trekking boots
  • Trekking socks
  • Sport shoes
  • Water sandals
  • Woolen socks for the night
  • Crampons
  • Walking stick
  • Water bottles or camelback
  • Sleeping bag
  • Earplugs

Besides the above-listed Trekking Gear for the Everest Three Passes Trek, you must pack sunglasses, sun lotion, lip balm, baby wipes, a first-aid kit, moisturizer cream, body spray, toiletries, extra camera batteries, and a power bank for battery charging.

What to Expect from the Everest High Pass Adventure Trek

The first thing to expect from this High Pass Trek is the pride of an adventure. Walking through traditional villages and lush forests for the first few days after the scenic flight to Lukla, you reach the open surroundings and see magnificent mountain views.

You walk through charming valleys and see captivating landscapes along the way on the Everest Three Passes Trek in the Everest Region. Vantage viewpoints like Hotel Everest View, Tengboche Hill, Nangkartshang Hill, Kala Patthar, Kongma La Pass, Cho La Pass, Gokyo Ri, and Renjo La Pass offer alluring views of the high mountains, including the four highest mountains above eight thousand meters.

During this adventure, you also walk on two massive and famous glaciers, Khumbu and Ngozumpa. Stepping on the foot of the world’s tallest mountain is also the great achievement of the Trek. Seeing pristine glacial lakes such as Gokyo Lakes is another trip attraction. Besides the natural attractions, seeing wildlife and religious monuments adds extra excitement to the Everest High Pass Trek. You will surely love the great hospitality from the locals during your Everest High Pass journey.

Everest High Pass: What makes the Trek difficult?

The considerable difficulty of this adventure, the High Passes Trek, is altitude sickness. Coming from sea level and flying directly to Lukla (2840m) is already high enough. You reach 5500 people plus within a few days of walking, but you have some acclimatization rest days in the lower areas like Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. However, the high altitude may not be an issue for everyone. Only a few trekkers might get altitude sickness on this Trek.

Trekking camps, especially while crossing the High Passes, are long. It would help if you started walking early in the morning with a flashlight to go over the Pass. These walks might make the trek tiring and difficult. These areas have long ascending and descending trails, which can cause knee pain.

Crossing the glaciers is also not easy because the glaciers melt and change the walking routes every year. If you follow the wrong direction after seeing some trails, you might miss the main path, so always walk with the guide. Getting food during the High Passes is also difficult. No lodge or restaurant is in the middle when you go over the Pass from one place before reaching the next for 7-8 hours. Taking some energy bars or snacks for the High Pass trails is better.

Useful Info

The Best Time to Trek to Everest's High Passes

September to November in the autumn and March to May in the spring are the best times to trek to Nepal's Everest High Passes and all the Himalayas. The autumn months offer the brightest mountain views and untouched nature because monsoon rain clears all haze and makes the environment fresh.

Autumn temperatures are bearable, but later in November they start getting colder because soon after December, winter starts. There is less chance of a flight cancellation to Lukla to start the Trek in the autumn. Similarly, spring is also a perfect time for the Everest Three Passes Trek. Spring is the king of the seasons, so you can see nicely blooming flowers in the mountain region. There are hundreds of Everest climbers in spring, so you will have a great opportunity to meet them at the base camp and on the trekking trail. But there might be some snowfall some days in the spring in the Himalayas.

Accommodation, Food, and Drink on the Everest High Pass Trail

There are plenty of lodges to stay at on the Everest High Passes route, which is why it is known as the Everest High Passes Lodge Trek. You will have a twin-sharing room in the guesthouses with comfortable and clean beds. You will get one blanket on each bed and a pillow. The Accommodations on the Trek are basic, but you can also get luxury lodges in the lower areas if you like to stay. Those luxury lodges are expensive compared to the regular ones.

You have a food menu in each lodge with many varieties of food. You do not have to stay with local foods during the Trek, but you can also have the local food items on the menu if you like to try them. You can buy mineral water bottles everywhere, but the price goes up as you go to higher elevations. You can drink regular tap water, but it is mandatory to use purification methods.

Toilets and Showers on the Trek

You have indoor toilets in the lodges where you stay on the trek. You even have attached toilets in your room in some places, but not everywhere. There are sitting and squatting toilets in the guesthouses. You might not get sitting ones in the higher altitudes because of the cold temperatures. If the toilets get frozen, they may be smelly and unclear. That’s why the lodges do not use toilets in the higher areas.

You get proper hot showers using gas and electric heating on the trek, but you might need a hot bucket somewhere. If the running water gets frozen, you won’t have a proper hot shower, so you must use a hot bucket. You must pay for a hot shower on the trek.

Internet, communication, and battery charging during the Everest Three Passes

There is cell phone reception in most places on this trek, so you can buy the Nepalese SIM Card in Kathmandu before heading on to the Trek. You can also buy internet data from these SIM Cards and use internet services in the mountains. NCELL and NTC are the service providers for this region.

Alternatively, you can buy the internet top-up card from Everet Link. You won’t have phone reception on the Gokyo side, so the Everest Link Card is the best option for you on this side.

Stay Safe on the trek.

Trekking in the mountains is not always safe. There might be some risk too. You encounter many people, porters, yak, Jokpe, and mules with loads on the trail. If you meet them in narrow surroundings, the load might push, so stay safe.

There are domestic and wild animals moving higher up the trekking trail. The stones might fall from their activity and hit you, so always check them while walking and do not stand straight in front of them.

There are ice and small stones on the high pass trail, which may make it slippery. Be careful while walking on those surfaces. The stone might fall due to melting ice and wind on the High Pass trails, so cross those risky areas before the strong sun, heat, and wind start walking early in the morning.
