Everest Three Pass Trek
Everest Three Pass Trek is more difficult but more adventurous than Everest Base Camp Trek that most people do. It is a challenging trek that involves crossing of three high passes namely Kongma La Pass (5,535m), Cho La Pass (5,330m) and Renjo La Pass (5,340m). All those three passes are in Khumbu region of Nepal and are over 5000m. Reaching to the base camp of prestigious Everest is still the highlight of the trek but the three passes add more thrill and adventure. Everest Three High Pass Trek is for those trekking enthusiasts who always want more. With it, one can see much more in the way of awe-inspiring Himalayan vistas exploring much more of the high country. This trek can begin from Lukla or Jiri. Flying to Lukla to begin the trek is a better choice for trekkers with limited time. Offering you breathtaking views of snowcapped peaks, glaciers, rivers and valleys; the trekking trail is through amazing landscapes, rolling hills and picturesque villages. Furthermore, the trekking trail takes you to the local Sherpa settlements where you can immerse yourself in their culture.
Everest High Pass Trek is more demanding than Everest Base Camp Trek. For it, one needs to have good cardiovascular fitness, should be mentally prepared and can take challenges. Remember Buddha Eye Treks for this adventurous trek.
