Trip Overview

Everest Three Passes Trek is an exciting adventure hiking journey in the Everest region of Nepal. This trip is now getting more popular among hikers from all around the world as it grants to cross over the three mountain passes of the Everest area. These alpine passes are called Kongma La Pass (5535 meters /18159 feet), Cho La Pass (5368 meters/ 17612 feet) and Renjo La Pass (5360 meter/17585 feet).

Technically it is not much difficult crossing these passes but all these trails climb over 5000 meters so it is essential proper acclimatization to reduce the effects of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Here the suggested hiking program is designed for considering this major issue.
