How difficult is the Everest three-high pass trek?

The Everest Three High Pass Trek is considered to be one of the most challenging and adventurous treks in the Everest region of Nepal. In addition to reaching Everest base camp and Kala Patthar, one can cross the three highest mountain passes Renzo La (5,360 m), Cho La (5,420 m), and Kongma La (5,535 m). The trek requires a high level of physical fitness, endurance, and adaptability due to the altitude and rugged terrain. Trekkers will face potentially unpredictable weather conditions including steep ascents and descents, rocky paths, snow and high winds.

Altitude sickness is a significant concern as it involves trekking to altitudes above 5,000 meters where oxygen levels are low. Proper adaptation and a slow, steady pace are essential to minimize risk. In addition, the remoteness of the region means that facilities and infrastructure are limited, requiring trekkers to be self-sufficient and be prepared for basic accommodation and food along the way. Despite the challenges, the Everest Three High Passes trek offers panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu, making it a rewarding and unforgettable adventure for those who are well-prepared and up for the challenge.

Condition of flight ktm/luk/ktm 

in peak season Oct/Nov- Mar/Apr there are no direct flights from Kathmandu to Lukla. Instead, flights to Lukla typically originated from Ramechhap Airport, which is located about 130 kilometers east of Kathmandu. The primary reason for not having direct flights from Kathmandu to Lukla is the challenging terrain and the short runway at Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Lukla Airport) Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), handling a mix of domestic and international flights, TIA experiences air transport during the trekking season and cultural events. so, air traffic is very busy at this time in Kathmandu. However, weather conditions can change rapidly and Lukla is often affected by fog, clouds, and high winds. Due to such adverse weather conditions, airlines are facing a challenge to operate direct flights between Kathmandu and Lukla. Flight cancellations and delays are common, causing logistical difficulties for passengers. As a result, many flights to Lukla stop at an alternate airport such as Ramechhap during peak season. This allows airlines to adjust their schedules and improve the chances of completing flights even in challenging weather conditions. Travelers planning to trek in the Everest region should be aware of potential flight disruptions and plan accordingly.

You can store it at your hotel (most hotels in Kathmandu have storage facilities without any charge)

in the last few decades where most of the rural villages do have proper communication wither by cell- phone (mobile our guides will be in touch with the head office through their cell phone. Sometimes Cell-Phone do works and don'ts as Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country with a deep gorge and valley, where cell phone works on high hills, and might not when in a deep gorge hidden by hills and mountains. The chances of a working cell phone are most positive you can try using a local popular SiM card.

There is a must of guest houses on the Everest three high Passes trek, which provides Wi-fi facilities at a small cost. However, don’t forget the cellular network in the mountain is poor, and it doesn’t work very properly it keeps disconnecting every minute.

Nearly all lodges on trekking do have small hydro or solar electricity, as for other accessories plugs to fit into re-charge your camera and cell phones, which allows you at extra cost to charge the batteries and your electronic device.

Accommodation is basic at a higher altitude. You will be staying at a teahouse or calls a guest house that offers food and accommodation for all the trekkers. A typical room has two beds on either side, with a small table in the middle. Beds are equipped with a mattress, pillow, and blanket; however, you may use your sleeping bag in addition to the blanket when it gets cold. The dining room in a teahouse is usually a warm temperate with fire. Hot showers are available throughout the trek. Our package includes and private, free hot shower in Namche.

Mountain eco treks provide water purification tablet which is safe for a drink. Bottled water is easily available during the whole trip, on this trek, we try to avoid plastic mineral waters due to waste and un eco-friendly, people can buy bottled water only in special and desperate situations. We highly recommended to you that it is better to carry a thermos with boiled and filtered water. You may need to use water purification tablets, Additionally, mineral water gets very expensive above Namche Bazar, rising to five times the original price due to high transportation costs.

There is no age limit for this three-high passes trek we do not recommend very old people over 70 years and small kids under 10 years, you can do this if you are not suffering from any disease course, it will be challenging for young children under 10 and people over 70 years old but if you are in good shape and have strength endurance training, cardio workout, and hiking in your local mountains before the trek then surely you will do it  Everest three high passes trek.

On treks, If the illness is mild a trekker can continue onward provided, they have rested and are feeling better. if you become seriously ill our guide will contact the head office for immediate medical evacuation by other means of transport with helicopter service for quick recovery. For quick and immediate evacuation, one should obtain a medical insurance policy to cover all medical, travel, and Heli evacuation when required in such situations. For AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) getting the victims downhill safer elevation and putting the patient on Gamma / Pressure Bags, we do carry Oxygen for the normal emergency purpose for severe cases heading Down-Down and Down or immediate evacuation in Helicopter to Kathmandu.

For sure we run several small group-joining treks with fixed departure dates, which travelers are able to join with another group on your suitable date.

Travel insurance is an important comprehensive package for  Everest three high passes trek. Travel insurance is essential for incidental expenses during travel. It reduces financial risks and protects travelers from certain losses. Travel insurance covers necessary medical expenses and emergency air rescue during the trip. We strongly recommend travel insurance for your protection

If the flight is delayed or canceled, the alternative option is to board the next day's flight. It is almost certain that there will be no flight to Lukla in the afternoon due to weather changes. As you may know, the weather in Lukla is very unpredictable, only can fly to Lukla when the weather is clear and favorable. Another option is to go by helicopter to Lukla if the flight is canceled, but it is very expensive at above USD 500 depending on the sharing.

Our itinerary is very flexible when you contact us to plan your trip, we will make the best arrangement according to your wishes. By choosing a time that is suitable for you, you can ensure your personal journey.

The route to Everest Base Camp is usually very crowded during the high season but in three high passe treks there will be fewer tourists than the Everest base camp trek. (spring and autumn) from September to Nov and March to May. Due to the extreme climate and temperature, the number of visitors is less during winter and monsoon. But there will be no problem for tourists to eat and stay even though it is very crowded.

You should bring all the trekking equipment you need yourself. Trekkers can bring equipment from their hometown, but their costs can be high, so buying them from local shops in Thamel Kathmandu is the right decision. There are some shops that also rent essential hiking gear for a small price. We will provide you with a duffel bag. You can see the checklist of the required materials on the company's website or you can contact us at mountainecotrek@gmail.com

Absolute recommendation

9th August, 2022

Would totally recommend Ram and our tour guide Bakktha to everyone. We did the three passes trek in the Everest region and it could not have been a better experience.
Organization was super smooth with Ram, and you could feel that he really tries to make this a grwat experience for you. For example, when stuck in Lukla due to weather conditions, Ram (and our guide Bakktha) really tried everything in their hands to get us back to Kathmandu fast and spent the whole day basically on the phone. Successful, in the end, and I believe we would have been stuck for another 2-3 days if it was not for them :)
Bakktha was a very kind and helpful guide that enriched our trek with grst organization and a lot of interesting information on the region. And he loves to play cards, which was great for us :)
All in all, I would always organize it again with Ram and Bakktha

Three passes trek

1st April, 2022

I loved the three passes trek. Great 18 days with awesome views and nice walks. And ram with his organisation and our guide bakktha did everything to make this trip unforgettable.Planning our trip was easy because email and telephone communication with ram was perfect. He told no lies and talked honestly about the costs and challenges of the trip.
The lodges were as good as possible up there at the trek.
Even when we had problems with our flights to and from lukla because of bad weather or technically problems with the aircraft ram and bakktha did hundreds of phone calls to manage that we didn't lose so much time.I would totally recommend the organisation. They are very nice, honest and speak good english.

How difficult is the Everest three-high pass trek?

The Everest Three High Pass Trek is considered to be one of the most challenging and adventurous treks in the Everest region of Nepal. In addition to reaching Everest base camp and Kala Patthar, one can cross the three highest mountain passes Renzo La (5,360 m), Cho La (5,420 m), and Kongma La (5,535 m). The trek requires a high level of physical fitness, endurance, and adaptability due to the altitude and rugged terrain. Trekkers will face potentially unpredictable weather conditions including steep ascents and descents, rocky paths, snow and high winds.

Altitude sickness is a significant concern as it involves trekking to altitudes above 5,000 meters where oxygen levels are low. Proper adaptation and a slow, steady pace are essential to minimize risk. In addition, the remoteness of the region means that facilities and infrastructure are limited, requiring trekkers to be self-sufficient and be prepared for basic accommodation and food along the way. Despite the challenges, the Everest Three High Passes trek offers panoramic views of the Himalayas, including Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makalu, making it a rewarding and unforgettable adventure for those who are well-prepared and up for the challenge.

Condition of flight ktm/luk/ktm 

in peak season Oct/Nov- Mar/Apr there are no direct flights from Kathmandu to Lukla. Instead, flights to Lukla typically originated from Ramechhap Airport, which is located about 130 kilometers east of Kathmandu. The primary reason for not having direct flights from Kathmandu to Lukla is the challenging terrain and the short runway at Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Lukla Airport) Kathmandu's Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), handling a mix of domestic and international flights, TIA experiences air transport during the trekking season and cultural events. so, air traffic is very busy at this time in Kathmandu. However, weather conditions can change rapidly and Lukla is often affected by fog, clouds, and high winds. Due to such adverse weather conditions, airlines are facing a challenge to operate direct flights between Kathmandu and Lukla.

This allows airlines to adjust their schedules and improve the chances of completing flights even in challenging weather conditions.
