Trip Overview

Three Passes Trek in Nepal below the world's highest mountain Mt. Everest (8848 m) is a challenge for all alpine tourists longing for a real adventure in a country with a huge natural and cultural wealth, where smiling people have lived for centuries in the middle of the Himalayas. This is a more challenging variant of the trek to Everest base camp. The reward for overcoming three passes of more than five thousand is a visit to more remote and deserted parts of the Himalayas.

During the trekking area of Solo Khumbu, unbeatable views of four 8,000-meter peaks will open up to us: Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. We will have other famous glaciated giants in the palm of our hand - Pumori, Nuptse, or Ama Dablam. Our route will lead from the landing area in Lukla to the center of the Sherpa people - Namche Bazaar. From here we will start to climb, the character of the landscape will change with increasing height and the terraced fields will be alternated by the alpine landscape with unique views of the surrounding mountains and cracking glaciers.

We will go up the route around the Tengboche monastery and through the settlement of Periche. Here we separate from the busy trekking route leading directly to the base camp below Mt. Everest and we will go on a circuit over the Kongma La pass (5368 m) to Lobuche and base camp. Next, we cross the Cho La pass (5368 m) to the Gokyo valley and from there over the last Renjo La pass (5350 m) to the Bhote Khosi river valley. At every step, we will encounter Buddhism, which will be remembered not only by monasteries, prayer wheels, and monks, but also by the ubiquitous prayer flags, stupas, and stone walls of mani.

In Kathmandu, we will meet Hinduism again. During this trek, it is possible to ascend to the scenic peak of Kala Patthar (5600 m), from where there are unique views of Mt. Everest and other peaks, and at Gokyo Peak (5357 m). It is a crossing of mountain loggias, whose hospitality we will use for accommodation and meals. We will only bring our own sleeping bag and personal belongings, we will always buy all the food on the spot, so there will be no need to carry any supplies and it is therefore almost easy to go. The trek can be done by anyone who has basic experience with mountains and good physical condition.

We will move for a long time at higher altitudes - several times over 5000 m. Essential for successful movement in these conditions is gradual and sufficient acclimatization, on which we place maximum emphasis. We will spend 18 days in the mountains, of which 3 days always serve as acclimatization day trips. Daily stages usually last 5-7 hours, including breaks, only crossings overpasses are longer. The daily elevation gain is on average 500 m up and 500 m down, we climb more meters and descend again at the crossings of passes.

All routes lead along mountain paths and trails, the tour does not contain any technically demanding sections, only the crossing of the snowy Kongma La and Cho La pass is slightly more demanding. We will go in a small group of up to 13 travelers. Shorter and less demanding variants of the trip are events Nepal - Everest trek or events with the support of carriers included in the price of the trip Nepal - Sherpa region. If you search for a comfortable and Moderate fitness trek you can choose the traditional Everest Base Camp trek 12 days. or Everest View trek 7 days.

Accommodation

Accommodation And Food:

Accommodation In Kathmandu we will sleep 3 times in a clean travel hotel with a hot shower, the only problem is occasional power outages. current. During the trek, we will use the local Himalayan loggias (huts) for a total of 18 nights. Their quality is constantly improving, but we must still keep in mind that Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. A quality sleeping bag is required for sleeping in loggias. Most rooms are equipped with blankets or blankets, which can improve the thermal comfort of the sleeping bag.

Loggias also have a simple shower with hot water for an additional fee, the toilet is flushing somewhere, dry somewhere. Boarding In Kathmandu we eat in local restaurants, on the trek than in loggias or in restaurants along the way, where we stop during the day for lunch. Usually, it is not a problem to order Western food (spaghetti, soups, sometimes burger or steak) or other excellent dishes of international cuisine. The traditional food is dal Bhat (rice with lentils and vegetables), fried noodles with vegetables or meat, roasted potatoes, momo dumplings (dough bags filled with vegetables or meat). For breakfast, it is possible to choose differently prepared eggs, toasts with butter, cheese, or jam, oatmeal, muesli, pancakes.

The local food is influenced by Indian cuisine, so even in modest conditions, it is very tasty. You can also buy energy bars (Snickers, Mars, Bounty) and biscuits or other supplementary food at each cottage. It is possible to order a variety of teas, hot fruit drinks, and coffee (in some cottages they also have a coffee machine). Bottled drinking water can also be bought anywhere, but after treatment by filtration or disinfection, we can also drink tap water or springs.

Eating on a trek, where food has to be taken by porters, and in tourist restaurants in Kathmandu, however, is not as cheap as in some other parts of Asia - it is necessary to count on food costs on average around 30 to 35 US$ per day. Dal Bhat costs in the mountains from US$ 7 to 10, beer from US$ 5 to 10, tea from Us$ 2 to US$ 5, bottled water from US$ 1 to 5.

Our best experience. We were not well prepared for the cold and we advise all the first time trekkers to make sure they have thermal underwear and hot water Bottle and windproof, waterproof Trekking gear. Our guide Birendra was the best making sure that we are safe at all times entire the trip. The porters were superman with a great sense of humor and always ready to help in many cases. Great arrangements Mission Himalaya.
