It is an ultimate mountain journey, exclusively designed for adventure trekkers, seeking the highest level of thrill and challenge in the Everest region. Thus, it presents a definitive challenge to even the most veteran trekkers around the word.

Including the arrival, departure and one day city tour, AME Treks and Expedition’s 19 days Everest Three High Passes trek is a teahouse trek that starts with a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. From Lukla, you will continue on the regular Everest Base Camp trail till Namche.

This trek is possible both clockwise and anti-clockwise. While doing this trek, you will also hike to the Everest base camp and Kala Patthar, before attempting Kongma La - the highest of all three passes.  From Namche, you will retrace your path to end your trek at Lukla.

If required, you always have an option to customize the package, to meet your specific needs and requirements. From our end, we guarantee 100% departure on all customized packages.

Rated ‘Challenging’, this trekking in the Khumbu region of Nepal demands high level of physical and mental fitness. Also, the success rate substantially increases, if you plan this trek at the right time of the year, that is, either October-November, or the beginning of March to mid-May. However, if you are looking for less challenging treks in the Khumbu Region, Everest Base Camp Trek-15 days, or Everest Base Camp Trek with Gokyo Lake and Chola Pass -18 days are some of the best trekking options. Moreover, if you are looking to experience luxuries in the mountain, our Ultra-Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek – 13 days is the one for you.

Please Note:

Due to obstructive weather conditions (even during the best trekking seasons), sometimes they may announce sudden changes regarding the previously provided domestic flight schedule to and from Lukla. The plane many be delayed for few hours or even few following days. This entirely depends upon the weather condition. In order to cope with this situation, AME Treks and Expedition, kindly requests all the trekkers to add a few extra days to your plan. Nevertheless, if everything goes well, we can also make arrangements for you to enjoy other attractions like bungee jumping, jungle safari, rafting, shopping and so on.

Furthermore, trekker’s safety is always the top priority in any trek. Therefore, the team leader on duty is given every authority to make changes in the itinerary provided, in case of unexpected weather change, unsuitable health condition of a group member or an unforeseen natural disaster. If needed, team leader might also cancel any part of the itinerary. Hence, in such a situation we request you to co-operate with our team leader and remain flexible.

Everest Three High Passes Trek Information

Useful Information:

Do I need travel insurance to do the Everest Three High Passes Trek in Nepal?  If yes, what type?

Yes, you need a travel insurance to do the Everest Three High Passes Trek in Nepal. In fact, it is compulsory. Travel insurance can cut back on major financial risk of traveling, like accidents, illness missed flights, canceled trips, lost baggage, theft, emergency evacuation and the dead body repatriation. Therefore, be careful while choosing your insurance policy. Make sure that the policy covers five major courses: trip cancellation or interruption, medical evacuation (treatment cost, hospital charges, doctor’s fee, and cost of the medicine), flight insurance (cancellations and delays) and baggage insurance (misplaced or lost luggage). You can also add supplemental policies to cover particular issues, like identity theft, and security and political evacuation (natural disasters, civil uprisings, military coups, political unrest, etc.). Or, get a ‘Comprehensive Insurance’ that covers all of the above given courses plus expenses caused by delayed trips, missed flights or any alterations in the itinerary by the tour company. Moreover, the maximum elevation gained during this trek is 5,550 meters; therefore, it’s important to ensure that the policy covers helicopter and medical evacuation up to 6000 meters (some standard policies only cover up to 4000 meters).

Which is the best season to plan the Everest Three High Passes Trek in Nepal?

Autumn (October to November) and spring (March to May) are the two best seasons to plan the Everest Three High Passes Trek in Nepal. These two seasons are very supportive in terms of weather, climate, visibility and trail condition. Heavy rainfall, during monsoon and heavy snowfall during winter make monsoon and winter not the best time to plan this trek in Nepal. However, if you are ready for these conditions, this trekking in Nepal can be planned throughout the year.       

Does this package guarantee accommodation and meal?

Yes, this package guarantees full board (meal and accommodation), during the trek and bed and breakfast in Kathmandu.

The accommodation in Kathmandu is arranged in a tourist standard hotel and lodges/guest houses/teahouses (with shared amenities), during the trek. The rooms are booked on a twin-share basis, where you will be paired up with another member (same sex) of your group. Triple share can be arranged on request, both in Kathmandu and during the trek. Single supplements are also available, but at extra cost. The accommodation options used during the trek are very basic. The room amenities are also basic, which decrease with the increase in altitude. However, the rooms are comfortable and are the best available in the area. Toilets and bathrooms are usually common. Some of these accommodations provide hot shower facility, while the others provide a few buckets of hot water on request (extra charge applicable). This facility also decreases with the increase in elevation.

Meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea/coffee), during the trek will be served as per the tea house menu. All meals will be freshly made, using organic and local ingredients and will be plentiful. Soft drinks and other snacks can be purchased at your own expenses (the prices significantly increase, with the increase in elevation). Breakfast in Kathmandu will be served as per the hotel breakfast menu (usually buffet). Typical Nepali cuisine will be served for welcome dinner. However, farewell dinner will be as per the restaurant menu.

How healthy, fit and experienced should I be, in order to plan the Everest Three High Passes trek in Nepal?

The Everest Three High Passes trekking in Nepal is a challenging trek. Trekkers need to cross the three high passes:  Renjo La (5,360m), Cho La (5,420m) and Kongma La (5,535m) and also hike to Kala Patthar (5,550m). Some days require 9-10 hours walking. The trail is demanding. Therefore, high level of fitness, healthy body, excellent stamina and tough determination is required to successfully complete this trek.

Therefore, it is highly suggest that you seek advice, medication and permission from your local General Practitioner, before planning your trek. Especially those with acute or chronic health conditions are highly recommended to consult your doctor prior to trek booking. It is also recommended that you consult regarding the necessary guide walks required to prepare your body for this trek. In the absence of GP, we suggest you seek advice from travel clinics.

No technical skill is required to plan this trek in Nepal. But, prior hiking or camping experiences are a plus point. Also, few weeks of regular exercise like jogging, running, swimming, cycling, uphill climbing is highly recommended to build the required stamina, before the trip.

(Please Note: We kindly request you to inform us regarding your present health condition, medical situation, ongoing illness and the regular medicines that you are taking. We expect you to be honest regarding these issues, so that we can get prepared for emergencies.)   

What happens if I get sick or injured during the Everest Three High Passes trek?

Your safety is our prime concern. We make sure that your trek is led by one of the most professional, experienced and licensed and First-Aid trained guide. In case of any sickness or injury, the guides will provide the necessary first-aid treatment and in serious situations, they will call a rescue helicopter to fly you back to Kathmandu for further medical help.

Should I tip my guide and porters?

Tipping your service provider is customary. Tipping shows that you are happy and satisfied with the service provided. Therefore, if you are happy and the satisfied with the service provided by your guide and porters a small gratuity is always appreciated.

Is the transportation cost included in the package?

This Everest Three High Passes Trek package includes the cost of airport transfers, the cost of vehicle used for city tour and the cost of the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight tickets.

How do I get in touch with my family members, while I am doing the Everest Three High Passes trek?

However, other times, when you do not have access to internet, or in the case of emergencies, you can use the cellular phone provided to our guide by the company to either call, or send a text to the off-site team in Kathmandu, from where, the message will further be delivered to the related person. Or, you also have an option to purchase and use prepaid phone cards (submission of 2 passport sized photos and passport visa copy is required to purchase the SIM), during your stay in Nepal.
