Trip Overview

Everest Three Passes Trekking is challenging and adventure-filled trekking in the Everest Region of Nepal. Much of the trek takes place inside the Sagarmatha National Park which was established in 1976 with the view of protecting the pristine ecosystem of the region. This trek takes us to three famed passes in the vicinity of Everest. These passes are Cho La Pass (5,368 m), Kongma La Pass (5,535 m), and Renjo La Pass (5,338 m). Collectively these passes are known as the ‘three passes of Everest’.

The Everest Three Passes Trekking starts with a flight to Lukla from Kathmandu. Lukla Airstrip is located in the eastern part of Nepal. It is situated at a trekking distance of one to two days from Namche Bazaar, the town which is better known as the ‘Gateway Town to Everest’. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is a thrilling affair. You will first get to see the complete view of the Eastern side of the Himalayas of Nepal from up above the sky. Then the landing experience at Lukla airport is one to cherish for a lifetime. The airport is located between gigantic peaks hence the last-minute descent into the valley where the strip is situated is completely thrilling.

We will head to Namche Bazaar from Lukla. Then we will trek toward Chukung through villages like Dingboche, Tengboche, and Pangboche. This village houses some of the most ancient and largest monasteries in the region.

The Tengboche monastery is the oldest Monastery in the Khumbu Region. We will cross our first pass – the Kongma La Pass – while trekking for Lobuche from Chukung. The Kongma La pass is the highest altitude one among the three passes of the Everest region.

We will head towards Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar from Lobuche. The Khumbu Glacier forms the path between Lobuche and Everest Base Camp. Everest Base Camp (EBC) provides a stunning view of the surrounding mountains and the Khumbu Ice Fall. We will head towards Kala Patthar (5,545 m) from Everest Base Camp. Kala Patthar provides one of the best views of the mountains in the Everest Region.

We will cross Cho La Pass while on our way to Gokyo Valley. The Gokyo Valley is home to six beautiful freshwater lakes and a village called Gokyo. We will stay at Gokyo Village for the night and trek to the top of Gokyo Ri (5,483 m) mountain the next morning.

The Gokyo Ri hilltop is equal to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar in terms of the spectacle on view from the place. We will cross the last pass – the Renjo La Pass – while on our way to Namche Bazaar from Gokyo Village.

The entire trek takes place inside the Sagarmatha National Park which is located in the Khumbu Region. The park is home to some of the rarest species of plants, birds, and animals. The Sherpa people are the main inhabitants of the region. They are hardworking and very hospitable apart from being world-famous mountain climbers. The people of the region mainly practice Buddhism. Animal Husbandry and agriculture is the main occupation of the people of the region.

The Everest Base Camp is at the distance of a short walk from Gorakshep. We will get a stunning view of the Khumbu Icefall and the surrounding mountains from Everest Base Camp. We will stay for some time at Everest Base Camp and return back to Gorak Shep for the overnight stay because there are no accommodation facilities at Everest Base Camp except for tents of climbers.

After spending some time in Kala Patthar and taking photographs, we will head towards Zongla by taking a less frequented route because our target is to cross the Cho La Pass and head towards the splendid Gokyo Valley. We cannot reach Cho La pass in a single day of trek from Kala Patthar so we will rest in Zongla for the night.

The Tonakh Cho lake is the largest among these lakes. A beautiful village named Gokyo is located at the heart of the Gokyo Valley. The village is situated at the foot of the Gokyo Ri Mountain.

I like trekking with Unique Path, the guides of this company many times made my way comfortable and safe. I traveled with them to Lobuche, Mera, Island and other places solo and in the groups with my friends. Unique Path is a reliable partner and I plan to trek with them again in Langtang region this autumn.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ). You will very glad/happy if you choose Unique Path and Trekking.

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
