Route Overview of Three High Passes of Everest Trekking

The journey of Three High Passes Trekking has five phases. The first phase is up to Namche Bazaar and the second phase is the crossing of the Kong Ma La Pass (5540 m). The third phase is the Everest Base Camp and fourth is the crossing of Chola Pass (5420 m). The fifth phase is the crossing of Renjo La Pass (5360 m) to Namche Bazaar. These phases are highly significant as trekkers traverse via Everest region’s famous places.

Until trekkers reach the Dingboche, the itinerary is similar to the Everest Base Camp Trekking. Therefore, please refer to our Everest Base Camp Trekking itinerary and overview for more details. By this time, trekkers will have completed two acclimatization breaks. There are two ways to do the Three High Passes of Everest Trekking. They are either the clockwise way or anti clockwise way. The most popular way of trekking is from the anti clockwise way that starts from the crossing of Kong Ma La pass. However, the clockwise way of doing the trekking is from Renjo La Pass as the first high pass.

Kong Ma La Pass (5540 m)

Among three high passes on this trail, crossing the Kong Ma La pass is tricky and technical. The narrow course is hard to navigate and there is glacial icy lake as well. Therefore, you need to heed the instructions of the guide while traversing to Lobuche. Trekkers have to walk over the glacier as well. The trail is rugged. The Pass connects the Everest Base Camp Trek Trail in Lobuche and Chhukung Valley next to the Dingboche Village. On the other side of the pass, the tranquil Lobuche offers the serene overnight experience.

Everest Base Camp (5364 m) & Kalapathar (5545 m)

Another iconic moment on the Three High Passes of Everest Trekking comes on this phase of trekking. Trekkers visit the base camp of the world’s tallest mountain Mt. Everest. Leave your footprints at the place where once Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stepped in their quest of first successful Mt. Everest ascent. The sunrise experience from the top of the Kalapathar is another enticing activity to do on this trekking. It is purely a Himalayan delights!

Chola Pass (5420 m) and Gokyo Valley

The Chola Pass is the most popular high altitude pass of the Everest region. The pass is in the itinerary of the EBC Chola Pass Trekking as well. The pass connects the Lobuche Valley and Gokyo Valley. The pass offers the panoramic view of mountains on all sides including Mt. Cho Oyu. Upon crossing the pass, trekkers reach the magnificent valley of Gokyo. The valley is famous for five lakes listed within the Ramsar Conservation Area. The blue turquoise lake mirroring the image of lofty snowy mountains resembles heaven in earth. It is truly blissful to stay overnight at the shores of the Gokyo Lake. The hiking of Gokyo ri is avoided during the Three High Passes of Everest Trekking. It is redundant to do the hike as trekkers reach the top of Renjo La Pass equivalent to the Gokyo Ri.

Renjo La Pass (5360 m) and Thame Village

From the top of Renjo la Pass, trekkers can get the splendid scenery of mountains as far as Mt. Makalu. Upon crossing the pass, trekkers reach the Thame Village area. The village is full of Everest Summiteers! In fact, the village’s every household boasts at least one Everest summiteers. Countless records and legends are created by the Sherpa people of the village. Therefore, trekkers can enjoy the intrepid and interesting tales of mountaineering from the people of the village. Finally, the trekkers meet the regular Everest Base Camp Trek route in Namche Bazaar. The trip follows the route of Monjo and Phakding to Lukla.

Physical Fitness & Dietary Requirements for Three High Passes of Everest Trekking

The trek is one of the challenging and arduous trekking trips of the region. Therefore, trekkers need to prepare themselves physically and mentally. One month prior to the trekking, do cardio exercises! You need to prepare your body for the continuous walking for about 6 – 7 hours up in the mountains. The lung capacity is highly needed for the high altitude trekking. Therefore, trekkers need to adopt the good dietary habit both pre and during the trek. Eat well and avoid greasy foods. Alcohol and caffeine should be avoided in order to increase the immune level and lung capacity.

Travel Insurance

Three High Passes of Everest Trekking requires proper Travel Insurance. Most of the days in the trekking are above 3000 m from sea level. Therefore, the risk of altitude sickness is very high. In order to avoid any unfortunate circumstances, trekkers need to get the travel insurance. The plan must include the helicopter rescue, accidents, and medical expenses. Upon landing in Nepal, trekkers have to provide the copy of the travel insurance document to the trekking agency. In case of emergency, the agency will use the document to do the necessary rescue activities.

Information

Some Additional Information

Correct Clothing & Equipments are essential for a safe and enjoyable trek. Experienced trekkers will often take only a selection of these items based on what has worked in the past. Please find the equipment list below for your personal use during your travel with us.

FOOTWEAR ( RUNNING SHOES) :

1 pair for casual Comfortable support shoes wear on lighter walking days.

LIGHT HIKING BOOTS :

1 pair of sturdy hiking boots in which you should wear a light synthetic sock under a warm heavy sock comfortably, either wool or synthetic. Sole should be flexible but still provide enough support for your feet. Boots should be very water repellent.

HIKING GAITERS (Optional) :

1 pair keeps rocks out of shoes and boots dry in case of precipitation. Optional if trekking pants are worn.

WOOL SOCKS :

3 pair heavyweight wool socks to be worn over the liner socks. When layering socks, check fit over feet and inside boots. Remember to keep one fresh, dry pair of socks available at all times. Socks with padded shins are especially nice with boots.

LINER SOCKS :

3 pair of smooth thin wool, nylon or Capilene to be worn next to the skin. This reduces the incidence of blisters and hot-spots and makes the outer sock last longer before needing to be changed. They should fit well with your heavyweight socks.

CLOTHING ( LIGHTWEIGHT LONG UNDERWEAR ) :

2 pair, tops & bottoms, Capilene, other synthetic or wool. No Cotton. Lightweight is preferable as it is more versatile (worn single in warmer conditions and double layer for colder). Zip-T-neck tops allow more ventilation options. One set of white for intense sunny days and one pair of dark for faster drying gives the most versatility.

LIGHT TREKKING PANTS :

Lightweight nylon pants designed to be used while trekking. They are extremely air permeable, dry quickly and provide sun protection. Zip-off lower leg sections are convenient for switching to shorts.

T-SHIRTS :

Lightweight crew style t-shirt that wicks away moisture. Shirt can be made of any synthetic material.

BANDANA :

Bring bandanas for face masks and other tasks.

SYNTHETIC/SOFT SHELL JACKET :

A full-zip version is easier to put on and has better ventilation than a pullover.

INSULTED DOWN-JACKET :

Medium to heavy weight with hood.

HARD SHELL JACKET WITH HOOD :

We recommend a waterproof breathable shell material with full front zipper, underarm zips, and no insulation. This outer layer protects against wind and rain.

HARD SHALL PANTS :

Waterproof, breathable. Any side zipper length is fine as long as you can get them over your boots.

HANDWEAR » FLEECE/SOFT SHELL GLOVES :

1 pair. A heavier fleece will do a better job of keeping hands warmer when wet than lighter polypropylene or Capilene.

SHELL GLOVES WITH INSULATION :

1 pair. Insulation does not need to be removable. A good quality ski glove is sufficient

HEADWEAR » HEADLAMP & SPARE BATTRIES

A good quality climber’s headlamp. For use at night, bring extra batteries!

SUN HAT :

The sun can be intense at high altitude. A hat with a good visor provides protection for the nose and eyes. Baseball hats work well. A Buff is recommended to reduce the amount of dust inhaled while trekking and reduces the chance of infection.

NECK GAITER OR BUFF :

Buff is preferred for covering the face and preventing sickness.

GLACIER GLASSES :

100% UV, IR, high quality optical lenses designed for mountain use, must have side covers, leashes, and a nose guard is particularly helpful. No more than 8% light transmission. If you wear contact lenses we recommend packing a spare pair of glasses—it is a good idea to have these with “photo-gray” or equivalent light-sensitive material so they can double as emergency sunglasses. If you wear glasses we recommend prescription glacier glasses (gray or amber). Talk to your eye care professional to find out where prescription glacier glasses are available. Regular sunglasses are not dark enough and do not provide any side protection from the sun.

PERSONAL EQUIPMENT » SLEEPING BAG :

High quality with hood to at least - 10 Degree, Down is lighter and less bulky, but more expensive than synthetics. (Company provide you sleeping bag for this trek)

BACKPACK :

but very useful.

PEE FUNNEL FOR WOMEN (Optional) :

Lightweight urinary director. (For minimal undressing for discreet use)

SUNSCREEN :

SPF 30 or better, 2 small tubes. Make sure that the sun screen is not older than 6 months. Sunscreen older than six months loses half of its SPF rating.

Recommended if you easily get cold hands and feet 1-3 pairs.

LIP SCREEN :

SPF 30 or better, at least 2 sticks. Not older than 6 months.

MP3 PLAYER (Optional) :

Nepal has abundance of offers to establish it as a round the year travel destination. Based on this fact, many international tourists are indeed incorporating Nepal in their wishful travel itinerary. For this Everest Base Camp trek, in our trekking group there will be one trek leader and one Sherpa porter for each group of two trekkers but we provide one assistant guide as per group size. Generally in our group the minimum number of tourist will be two and the maximum group size is ten. For single traveler, we organize the trip with single supplement. We saying 10 people are our maximum pax for the trek doesn't mean we are not operating more than 11 persons, we do it on request. However it is good to keep the limit group size which means we can provide a best services and personal take care to our valuable clients during their trip with us.

Trekkers who are making their plan to travel in the Himalaya, most require three basic components of preparation - aerobic, strength, and mental. Aerobic conditioning is important primarily because you will trekking in thin air, up to 50% less than at sea level. With good aerobic conditioning you will be able to minimizing the potential effects of Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). Hiking for at least two hours per day with some weight on your back is the best way to prepare yourself for trekking. Running, cycling (outdoor or stationary), Nordic track, hill climbing, or any exercise that gets your heart rate into the aerobic range for sustained periods of time. Every day you will walk in the Himalaya around 4 to 7 hrs and reaches at highest place to 5550m/18204 feet. So, health is a most essential part for your adventure travel. Tramping Himalaya Adventures most require your medical fitness certificate prior to your booking. Before the trip booking with us we suggest to consult with your Medical Doctor and in his/her references go for your trip booking process. Trekking in the Himalayas is a relatively safe activity and mishaps or problems are usually minor. However, unpleasant things can occur on a long trek. You might have a bout of mild illness, not sleep as well as usual, find the trek pace too fast or slow - any number of things might be annoying or stressful during some part of your trek. Before you leave for Nepal, or for any foreign destination for that matter, think about the journey as more than just a quest to reach a destination. Try to imagine your trip as an opportunity to experience whatever happens as an essential part of the journey. It doesn't matter so much whether you actually reach Everest Base Camp. You should be prepared to find joy and fulfillment in all the moments of your trip, including the less pleasant ones that you hadn't expected. Preparing to keep a very positive frame of mind throughout your trip, along with good physical conditioning, will insure that you are ready to experience all the wonders of Nepal.

Your Trek Leader's role is to ensure all aspects of the trip run smoothly. He will share their local knowledge, advice on how to fill your free time and co-ordinate the day to day running of the tour - although occasionally he may need your understanding if things do not go according to plan. If you have any problems on the tour, please let your Trek Leader know so that steps can be taken to put it right. We are a well stabilized adventure company and we employed professional trek leader (who are based on English speaking and few are multi-lingual's) and required crew member (they have basic knowledge of communication). We also provide the training to our staff increasing their work efficiency. And our guides are intimately familiar with all local castes and customs along the trails and will share with you many cultural insights that are not covered in any guide book. You will have good chance to learn Nepali phrases, cultural things and more on your Trekking. Tramping Himalaya trained its guide/trekking staff on following course.

Tramping Himalaya has been operating in the Himalaya for over 15 years and specializes in responsible travel. We offer small group adventure expeditions to Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. Our unrivalled itineraries reflect our long experience in the region. All our treks are accompanied by a highly experienced local leader ensuring safe acclimatization at every stage. You can hike, mountaineer and climb your way through the homeland of the adventure holiday. Tramping Himalaya is one of the world's leading adventure travel company offering hundred of itineraries on this continent for small group active adventures and expeditions, walking tours and cultural journeys. The company has been operating trekking and adventure travel holidays and vacations since 1992. Each itinerary has several scheduled departure dates throughout the whole year. Our all-inclusive, no hidden extras pricing policy combined with longer, creative itineraries and the use of quality ground services attracts people who have high expectations of their travel experiences.

We are experts at operating at high-altitude. Every trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our treks are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. There is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on hiring basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude illness, and our leaders are trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.

Diamox (Acetazolamide) allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. Since it takes a while for Diamox to have an effect, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). (The standard dose was 250 mg., but their research showed no difference for most people with the lower dose, although some individuals may need 250 mg.) Possible side effects include tingling of the lips and finger tips, blurring of vision, and alteration of taste. These side effects may be reduced with the 125 mg. dose. Side effects subside when the drug is stopped. Contact your physician for a prescription. Since Diamox is a sulfonamide drug, people who are allergic to sulfa drugs should not take Diamox. Diamox has also been known to cause severe allergic reactions to people with no previous history of Diamox or sulfa allergies. Frank Hubbell of SOLO recommends a trial course of the drug before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat.

To be adequately protected in terms of insurance, you will need specialist travel insurance for participation in the hazardous activities. A travel insurance policy that covers helicopter evacuation, trip cancellation, injury, death, lost baggage, theft, liability, medical treatment and expenses is strongly recommended. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal such as trekking and climbing. If you are injured and unable to travel, you can ask for a rescue helicopter from a remote area only if you have definite proof you can pay for it. Tramping Himalaya Adventures have an agreement in Kathmandu that guarantees payment for helicopter evacuations. They pay a cash deposit to the helicopter operator and collect the money from you once you have been rescued. Be sure your policy specifically covers mountaineering or alpinism or you may have a difficult time settling a claim.

The climate of Nepal is as varied as its geography. The low-lying Terai has a sub-tropical monsoonal climate. The Himalayan foothills, where most of our treks take place, are best in the cool dry season from September to May. The traditional trekking season in Nepal is late September to May, with October and November generally recognized as having the best weather. Spring is also a popular time of year with warmer weather and the advantage of seeing spring flowers and rhododendrons in bloom. The visibility is good, days are pleasantly warm, although nights can be cold, and snow is possible above 3,000 meters. Everest Base Camp trek is likely to have a wide range of temperatures depending on the altitude and the time of day. In the mountains up to 3,500m the nights will be cool, normally around 5 degree C, and during the day temperatures sometimes rise to 25 degree C. At higher altitudes temperatures range from about 20 degree C to -15 degree C.

All foreigners require a visa for entry into Nepal (except Indian nationals). It is your responsibility to obtain the entry visa.Visas can be obtained from the Nepalese embassy prior to travel or on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and various international border crossings between Nepal and its neighbors.Make the visa process easier a passport-sized photograph for immigration and having the correct USD cash is required-please bring this in your hand luggage.

We strongly recommend our clients for consulting the doctor before planning your holidays. You should obtain professional advice from a travel clinic or your local GP about which vaccinations to have before you arrive in Nepal. Your doctor will advise current inoculation requirements. If a doctor has recommended against travel or indicated travel may be inconvenient then inform us of the details. On all trekking and exploratory trips technical experience is not required, hiking/camping experience is an advantage, but by far the most important thing is a positive attitude and a generous amount of determination. We strictly maintain hygiene foods on the trek. We carry extensive medical kits and, if the need should ever arise, we are able to evacuate seriously ill group members by helicopter. We run regular first aid courses for our all trekking guides and Sherpa helpers.
