3 High Passes of Renjo, Chola, and Kongmala in the Himalaya

Your adventure to three passes trek in the Everest region begins with an exciting flight to STOL airport at Lukla. We spend two nights at Namche for proper acclimation. Later on, we hike to the less trodden trail towards the Thame and Lungden close to the Tibet border. No doubt the Renjo la crossing is tough but very much rewarded with stunning views. From the pass, you can get the parades of Himalayan giants including Mt. Everest with pristine Gokyo lakes at a single frame. Besides that, we climb the Gokyo Ri, the first of our three peaks on our list to climb. Furthermore, we hike on the largest Ngonumpa glacier before crossing the Chola Pass. Ultimately we join the popular Khumbu valley trekking route to hike the Kalapathar peak and to explore the Everest base camp.

Furthermore, we trek to Chukung from Lobuche crossing the Kongmala the less trodden and tough pass but very rewarding. From Chukung we climb our third peak: Chukung Ri. The climb to the top of Chukung Ri offers a stunning view of Amadablam, Lhotse, Nuptse, Makalu. On our way down we trek via the Thyangboche monastery making a big circle to complete the three passes trek. Undoubtedly the entire journey is being accompanied by a hundred memories and a huge sense of achievement. Our experts’ recommendation: If you are having a problem selecting strenuous trekking in the Himalayas, then look no further. Simply book this three-pass trek as it covers all the highlights which Everest region has to offer.

Besides the 3 Passes Trek in Nepal if you wish to add the trekking peak climbing experience we suggest you do the Everest High Passes and Peaks trip. This trip offers the most popular trekking peak climbing of Island peak with high altitude venture in the Himalayas. Another alternative is to do the Everest Circuit Trek which is the combination of Everest base camp trek with Gokyo lake via the Chola pass.
