Our Everest Three Passes Trek (often called Everest High Passes Trek) in Nepal is a challenging, 'best of the Everest region' trek through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Nepal Himalaya with guides who spend all their time in the Himalaya. Our Everest trek is a window into traditional Sherpa villages and 'gompas' (monasteries), their mountain Buddhist culture and their sacred peaks and valley. Not only peaks, the Everest region is an incredibly spiritual place, and we have the chance to visit its many colorful gompas, and chat with the monks of Pangboche, Namche, Khumjung, Khunde, and Thame Gompa.

Some of the highlights of our Everest Three Passes trek | The Chhukhung Valley and the Himalayan views (including Makalu) from Chhukhung Ri, trekking to Everest Base Camp and its otherworldly climbing Kala Pattar for incredible Everest views, the turquoise Gokyo lakes with the colorful prayer flags fluttering at the top of Gokyo Ri, the Himalayan panorama from the top of the Renjo La, descending into the traditionally Sherpa Thame valley, where the Tibetans pass through on their way from Tibet to Namche Bazaar. Throughout, we are surrounded by spectacular 8000 meter peak panoramas and hosted by welcoming Sherpas in their wonderful lodges ...

April, May in spring season and October, November are the perfect times to trek in the Everest region, the Himalayan peaks accentuated by clear and blue skies. Wildlife such as the Himalayan thar, musk deer, danphe (Nepal's national bird), blood pheasant, Himalayan snow-cock, snow-pigeon and chukkar roam the mountain sides.

Mountain views don't get any better than trekking in the Khumbu region.

Join us for this unforgettable trek through Nepal's spectacular Everest region!
