Everest three passes trek is an ultimate Himalayan Journey around the Khumbu region which exhibits the view of most of the mountains in Khumbu region including the challenge of three high passes those are all above 5000 meters. The three weeks of tough nut-to-crack starts from Lukla, as usual, taking the regular plans as Everest base camp trek until Dingboche and splitting toward Chhukung where the mighty and mysterious Khongma La pass awaits your arrival. Not only the virtual rocky trails of the pass bemuse everyone to figure out the right path but also showcase the several Himalayan peaks all around. Trekking to Everest base camp via Lobuche and climbing the famous Kalapathar viewpoints adds some courage to encounter the two other passes to be crossed within the next 5 days. Starting early morning from Zongla for the Chola pass is not very hard to get to the top of the Col. On a regular day which takes an ascent of three hours. The first section of steep descends downwards Drangnag is however truly a heartache due to the slope that doesn’t allow a good grip for stepping. During the winter and early spring season, it is necessary to attach crampons to ensure safety for walking down this hard ice trail. Rest of the trail to Dragnag is safer and easier also. Dragnag to Gokyo trail is fully a walk on Ngozumpa glacier where some brief steep and narrow ups and downs should be made carefully since the drying glacier keeps losing the rocks into the deep temporary pits and sometimes falls on the trail also. Gokyo is stunning lakeshore settlement with several lodges providing food and accommodation for the trekkers where you find a unique paradise beyond the high Himalayas and surrounded by freshwater and glacial lakes. A gradual steep climb to the top of the Gokyo Ri (5360 meters) takes your instant stamina but manifests the towering giants of Himalayan ranges including Mt. Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho-Oyu. A free day in Gokyo allows the stroll around the third lake, fourth and fifth lake including the Ngozumpa glacier continued to trek towards Namche via Renjo pass and Thame village offers the view of lesser-known mountains towards the west and sacred monasteries located atop the hills surrounded by alpine forests. The lungden-Thamo-Namche trail is also the less trodden area with lush forests and peaceful environment. The trek is ultimately accomplished after carrying the walk down to Lukla from Namche. And finally, last but not the least; the adventurous flight to Kathmandu from Tenzing Hillary airport would be waiting for the long way home!
