The Three Pas trekking trails are open for the whole year although the weather makes it difficult to complete trekking.  winter (December, January, and February) temperature gets down, and also the possibility of heavy snow all, in the rainy season temperature will be good but rain makes it difficult to finish the trekking.

Everest Three high pass trek difficulty

The Everest Three Passes Trek is considered one of the most challenging treks in the Everest region of Nepal. It involves crossing three high mountain passes: Kongma La Pass (5,535m/18,159ft), Cho La Pass (5,420m/17,782ft), and Renjo La Pass (5,340m/17,520ft). The difficulty level of this trek is generally rated as strenuous or challenging due to the high altitude, steep ascents and descents, unpredictable weather conditions, and the need for good physical fitness and acclimatization.

Trekkers should be prepared for long days of hiking, varying weather conditions including cold temperatures and possible snowfall, and the effects of high altitude such as altitude sickness. Proper acclimatization, physical fitness, and prior trekking experience in high-altitude environments are highly recommended for those attempting the Everest Three Passes Trek. Additionally, trekking with an experienced guide and/or joining a guided group can enhance safety and enjoyment during the trek.

Preventive measures for Altitude sickness

Concerns, about altitude play a role in the Everest Three Passes trek especially considering the heights involved. It is important to acclimatize by spending a day in Namche Bazaar or Dingboche before tackling the passes allowing your body to adjust slowly to the high altitudes. Staying hydrated is key, to preventing dehydration so it's recommended to drink plenty of fluids while steering clear of alcohol and caffeine. The ascent should be gradual following the planned ascent and descent patterns outlined in the trek itinerary. Being able to recognize symptoms of altitude sickness like headaches, nausea, and fatigue is essential. If symptoms worsen immediate descent and medical attention are vital. Some trekkers may choose to take altitude sickness medication. It's best to consult with a healthcare professional.

Weight Limits for Porter and Flight

Basic physical fitness means trekkers should be able to walk 4 to 6 hours per day even at high altitudes. We suggest to all our trekkers to prepare by doing aerobic training, running, gym, and yoga for the one month before going trek. 

Of course, trekking at a high altitude the air will be thinner and oxygen level gets down although no oxygen supplementary is needed for Everest Three Pass Trek. Drinking penalty of water, soups, and breathing yoga can increase the level of  O2 level in your body

While getting high altitude two days of acclimatization at Namche Bazar and Chhukung is enough for regular trekkers. If you need more acclimatization days we can customize the trip to your needs. 

To confirm your booking trip the 20% down payment is required to make advance as per company policy. As Nepal most liked tourist destination and is always overbooked in the mountain region we encourage you to make an advance payment on time to secure your reservations.

Everest Three Pass Trek is totally worth it trek has main three passes all are above 5000m which is itself a great achievement for a Hiking lover. Everest region is home to the world's highest mountain, high peaks above 7000m, and abundant in spectacular scenery. Walking through the Himalayas' icy glaciers, stunning views of high mountains, and oligotrophic lakes, makes one of the greatest adventure experiences of a lifetime.
