The Three Passes of Everest Region is a challenging feat but one where the rewards are endless! We venture into the beautiful Khumbu Region, visiting Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar before tackling not just one, not two put three high mountain passes. The sense of achievement you will get from this trek is mind blowing and the scenery is equally spectacular.

We enjoy time in Namche Bazaar, the Sherpa capital and gateway to the high Himalaya before increasing the altitude. Tyangboche is a magical resting place for the night enjoying panoramic vistas and is the home to a wonderful, ornate monastery. We head further up, deep into this mountainous region, conquering steep inclines and rocky trails before marvelling at the views from three different passes.

This trip is for energetic individuals who like a challenge, 17 days of walking, endless panoramas and an experience of a lifetime.

Heard too much about Sherpas and now I know why they are the heroes of Himalayas.

Anonymous At 2018-10-30 10:06:00

I still cannot believe that there are people like them who fulfills their duty so well and keeping their life in danger . when we had just crossed the place called kalapatthar c i felt from the landscape i could've lost my life but by the help of my heroic guide and porter i made it to my second life which made me feel that i will never stop coming back to the beautiful country like Nepal. Memorable and the best trip ever i had and will have in my life.
