Everest 3 Passes Trek (21 Days)

The Everest trek facilitates crossing three high passes which are not on the standard Everest trail, Renjo La (5,388m/17,513ft), Cho La (5,380m/17,650ft) and Kongma La (5,535m/18,159), and also offering the opportunity to explore the Everest region at its best. The high passes trek tends to be more challenging and longer than the average Everest Base Camp Trek. It crosses through high-altitude alpine forests, providing rare encounters of Himalayan flora and fauna. The hospitality offered by the inhabitants of the region, Sherpa, is commendable.Catching a glimpse of few of the Eight-thousanders located in the region, namely; Mt. Everest, Cho Oyu, Lhotse, Maklau, Nuptse, Pumori, and Amadablam, can be overwhelming.21 days of continuous trekking up the mountain can be very challenging and exhausting. One can have spare days en route to ensure plenty of time to acclimatize, moreover, the assistance provided by the guides and Sherpa will make your trip more comfortable. They are trained in treating minor sicknesses on the trek.
