Only few peoples have done and crossed all these Everest Three Passes Trek, it is not for faint hearted trekkers ! Kongma La is beautiful pass, views from pass is dramatic Mt.Thamserku, Mt Amadablam, Mt. Kongtega numerous mountains and glacial Lakes in front of yours eye with in few kilometers distance. There are several lakes just below the pass with surrounding meadow. If you are coming in late November to end of February required ropes, ice-axe and crampon. Other time of the year, no need to put any rope while descending or ascending. Cho La Pass is common one but difficulty is similar as Kongma La. Renjo La Pass from Gokyo to top is easy ascending, it is much easier compared to Cho La and Kongma La but descending from pass for about 100m is challenging when snow covers the trail. Same with crossing Lungden but very fascinating.

Early breakfast and early transfer to the airport. The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is one of the most spectacular in the world. The landing at Lukla airstrip (9,184/2,800m) adds considerably to the general excitement of landing on a mountain airstrip. At Lukla we will be met by your guide and porters. After a sort out and a cup of tea, you begin your trek to Phakding. Overnight at Phakding.
Leave behind the Dudh Kosi River and suspension bridge, you trek to Namche. Near the halfway point up the hill views of Everest (29,028’/8,850m) and Lhotse (27,916/8,511m) come into sight. Namche is the most prosperous and largest town in the Khumbu. A traditional – trading center, a market is held every Saturday. The wares on display include grains and vegetables, tennis shoes and trinkets as well as hand woven aprons and Tibetan boots. Thamserku (21,806 ‘6,648m) and Kwangde (20,417/6,224m) loom to the east and west, and the sacred mountain Khumbila (18,729/5,707m) dominates the skyline to the north behind the village. Time – 6 hours but could take 8 hours with your stoppage etc.
You may walk up to Syangboche for acclimatization purpose and view the spectacular views of Mt. Everest and Amadablam peak from Everest view Hotel or just walk up to museum on the hilltop of Namche. Plenty places to explore but at very slow pace.
The trail descends forming a dramatic View of Ama Dablam (21, 9641/6,696m) and Kangtaiga (22,235’/6,779m) flanked by the towering heights of Sagarmatha (the Nepalese name for Everest).Lhotse and Nuptse. Cross the Dudh Kosi at Phungithanga and climb through rhododendron forest to the saddle at the top of the hill. Here lies Tengboche, the main monastery of the Khumbu area. The views from here are unforgettable. Tengboche lies at the base of Kangtaiga and the spur of this ridge affords panoramic views of the main peaks of Khumbu including Everest, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam.
Descend from Thyangboche and again cross the Imja Khola, and then trek uphill gradually to Pangboche. There is an interesting Gompa site above the main village. The trekker is in the midst of the Himalaya here, with spectacular views all round. For acclimatization, there is a need to spend two nights around the 14,000’/4,268m level and Dingboche lying in a sheltered spot above the Imja Khola is generally more attractive than Pheriche. It is however, of note that the Himalayan rescue association has their aid post at Pheriche.
Take a plenty time of rest. Explore around.
A day walk up to Chukung (4730m) is highly recommended. The route gradually ascends to the few scattered stone huts that make up the settlement. To the south are ever changing views of Ama Dablam and to the north the massive walls of the Nuptse ridge and the south face of Lhotse.
An important acclimatization/rest day today with the option of hiking high up to the ridge overlooking the village, or perhaps up to Chhukung Village. You spend the day exploring or relaxing and taking in the mountain scenery. Excellent views of Nuptse, Lhotse, Chhukung Peak and Imja Tse (6189 m) can be seen from the ridge above the camp. Massive glaciers drape beneath cliffs that soar up to 3,500 meters in this dramatic valley. It is from here that you will prepare to make our first crossing of a high pass, the Kongma La Pass at 5300 meters.
Start early morning around 6 am with pack lunch, a gentle strong along the valley at first, followed by a steep ascent into the deep valley between Pokalde peak and Chhukung. This will be a big day as you ascend to the Kongma La pass amid the crags of this outlying ridge from nearby Nuptse. From the pass you descend steeply to the Khumbu Glacier which you cross, clambering up the moraines on the far side to reach the meadow by the Italian high altitude research pyramid where you overnight. Spectacular views of Pumori and Nuptse can be seen from here.
Start early. The actual distance is not so far but you take it very slowly to compensate for the altitude stopping at Gorakhshep (5288m) for a night after visiting Everest Base camp.
Start early to avoid crowds to summit Kalapattar to get astounding views of Mt. Everest. You are high, among the glaciers of the world's highest peaks, at the junction of two large glaciers and nestled in an amphitheatre of peaks. Pumori (7145 m), Lingtren (6697 m), Nuptse (7745 m) and of course Everest (8848 m) surround you.
You head west towards the Chola Pass, contouring around a headland towards the picturesque Dzongla pass which cuts across a jagged spur that descends from the summit of Lobuche Peak. The path takes an obvious, gently ascending line, but is very narrow and in snowy conditions can be slippery.
The views today are magnificent, you get to see Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. Chola is steep and scrambles up rock boulders and then a walk across is gently ascending. Views your ahead are breathtaking. You descend steep boulder strewn slopes to the Gokyo valley. This is a valley of turquoise lakes and great glaciers. At the end you climb a gentle slope to the top from where you go downhill following a narrow river valley all the way to its base where you stop briefly. Cross the glacier and ascend the lateral moraine valley past beautiful lakes with Siberian ducks swimming across the mirror-calm surface, to the village of Gokyo.
Full day at Gokyo. Climb Gokyo Ri at 5330m in the morning. About 3 km north of Gokyo is the fourth lake with its high cliffs and peaks rising above it. The trail continues to fifth lake and you get mesmerized by the shimmering turquoise blue sheet of water. If all good we can go further to climb on a hill at the edge of the Lakes to get astounding views of Cho-Oyu, Gyachung Kang, Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, and Makulu. Back to Gokyo village.
Start early around 5 am, a challenging cross but exciting one. The Tibetan boarder is very close and you get a chance to meet Tibetan Traders descending from the Nangpa La pass that leads through the Himalayas from Tibet with their caravans of woolly yaks laden with goods.
Leisure and fascinating day. Visit lovely Thame villages. It has view point and lovely Sherpa settlement.
You turn south and down valley towards Lukla for your return to Kathmandu. But there are Sherpa villages to be explored as we descend the gorge.
The trail takes you down the Dudh Kosi valley to Lukla airstrip for the flight back to Kathmandu. This final day's trekking will be the only day that you would be walking twice on the same route.
After early breakfast at lodge fly back to Kathmandu and transfer to hotel
Free time until departure. Transfer to airport. Depart Kathmandu.
