Overview

One of the most popular treks in the world, the Everest Base Camp trek has been made even more exciting by Accessible Adventures. You get the opportunity to hike across three of the world’s highest mountain passes, famously called the three passes trek, along with the Everest base camp. The three passes of Renjo La, Cho La and Kongma La stand at an altitude over 5000m and aren’t usually featured in a standard Everest Base Camp trek.

The trek begins from Lukla which we reach through a short flight from Kathmandu. The flight itself is very scenic as you get to view the wonderful Mahalangur range from the mountains. From Lukla we begin our trek, making our way to the land of the Sherpas: Namche Bazaar. On the way to Namche though, we will be staying at Phakding for a night. We spend a total of two nights at Namche Bazaar for acclimatization purposes where we explore the ancient Sherpa settlement with its many moastaries and scenic views of the mountains.

From Namche, we make our way o Tengboche enjoying awesome views of massifs like Kantega, Kusuk, Kanguru and others. Staying overnight at Tengboche we start our climb to Dingboche which lies at an awesome altitude of 4410m. Here we stay overnight and perform some acclimatization activities to hel our bodies adapt to the thin air.

From Dingboche we walk to Chhukang through the Imja river valley which is lined with ancient remains of stone walls with a wonderful vistas view. From Chhukang we reach the first pass on our three passes trek, the Kongma la pass. The trek push this day lasts a grueling 9 hours with the highest point being the pass at 5535m. Few descend from the pass to Lobuche where we stay for the night.

Then walking to Gorakshep, we make our way to Everest base camp on the same day. The base camp is where the dreams of many mountaineers began  to be actualized. After a short stay at the base camp we descend back to Gorakshep for the night. The next day we trek to Kalapatthar and after seeing one of the best views of the mountains, including Cho Oyu. Ama Dablam and ofcourse Mt Everest. The same day we go towards the another pass, although not counted officially within the three passes, Dzong La. Dzong La has a small village with a few guest houses too.

Leaving Dzongla behind, we move towards Thaknak, via the second pass, Cho La, one of the three passes at an altitude of 5420m. After descending to the village of Thaknak we stay overnight at one of the guesthouses there. From Thaknak, our next destination is Gokyo village, where after a nice sleep overnight we make our way to Gokyo Ri the next day.

The pristine view of the Gokyo lake as well as the opportunity to see mountains towering around it 360 degrees, will be etched in your mind forever. Descending to Gokyo village where we stay for the night, the next day we begin our ascent to Renjo La pass at 5360m the next day. Finally three passes have will have been completed and descending to Lumde we stay over for the night.

From Lumde we trek to Thame, where one of the most picturesque and  beautiful monasteries rests. From Thame, the next destination is Lukla, staying a night over at Namche along the way. The trek officially ends here.

The adventure begins from Lukla after a short flight from Kathmandu. The path involves crossing several suspension bridges, walking through massive green meadows, rhododendron forests, and gurgling streams.  Also, you'll come across through different Sherpa settlements such as Phakding, Monjo,Pangboche,Biboche, Namche, Thame, and Lungden.  

Thus with the Everest base camp trek along with three passes, trekkers would have completed the Everest base camp, Gokyo lake as well as the three highest passes in the region.

Today we have to start our trek before 4-5 am so we can cross Cho La pass before mid-day and re-assess the hike when the weather turns bad. Today the route maybe little difficult due to high altitude and steeply loose rock. Snow may cause some problem while crossing Cho La pass and rock fall can also be the problem although weather is good.
