Trip Facts

Duration : 18 days - 23 days

Difficulty Level : 4

Group Size : 2 to 12

Maximum Altitude : according to the trek 3920 m or 5500 m

The  Khumbu Three Passes trekking,the 3 Everest passes, from Phaplu or Jiri lead  us  to the Renjo Pass, the Chola Pass and the Kongma La the 3 passes of Everest.

The advantage is a much better acclimatization to the altitude that will pass the 3 passes.

In addition, the whole route from Jiri or Phaplu to the path that joins Namche is very pleasant on very well maintained paths with good lodges and especiallymuch less frequented . Less than 5% of trekkers in Khumbu leave from Phaplu or Jiri.

Take advantage of this trek by the old road to immerse yourself in the Sherpa culture by slowly approaching the peaks of the Himalayas with the final bouquet of Everest.

It is also the opportunity to discover another much less tourist Khumbu more carried by agriculture, livestock and field activities. A more traditional Nepal.

Sagarmatha Park in the heart of Khumbu is a World Heritage Site. It is home to a great diversity of flora and fauna.

This is the best way to make the Khumbu Three Passes trek or the 3 Khumbu passes and to have fun while arriving at the summit of the mountain passes and contemplating dream landscapes.

From Namche the first of the 3 passes is the Renjo Pass , then after climbing to the Gokyo Peak one crosses the Chola Pass , to climb Kala Patthar and go to Everest Base Camp. We end with Kongma La .

A trip to altitude and Sherpa country that starts low in the valley to acclimatize progressively and tu the peaks.

The Khumbu is also many monasteries, the oldest of which is in Pangboche without forgetting to take a tour on the Tibetan market of Namche Bazar where Tibetans and Nepalese trade.

On the whole trek we cross suspension bridges, pine forests, we cross rivers sometimes frozen, we stop in Sherpa villages, we visit Tibetan monasteries, then slowly, we get closer to the highest peaks of the planet Lhotse, Ama Dablam and of course Everest in final point.
