Everest Three High Pass

      Are you an adventure seeker, but not quite ready to conquer the mighty Everest? Or maybe just looking for a more affordable option for your next Himalayan adventure? Everest Three High is the trek for you! 

       After flying into the scenic Lukla, you’ll head to the infamous Naamche Baazar, where you can find anything from trekking gear to knick-knacks for loved ones back home. You’ll trek through pristine pine tree forests, past ancient monasteries in Tyangboche, cross suspension bridges over the raging Dudh Kosi, and of course score amazing views to some of the world’s highest peaks. You’ll first mountaineer your way over the Chhukung Ri, where you’ll then cross your first high pass, Kongma La (5,535m). After experiencing the amazing energy at Everest Base Camp, you’ll be on your way towards your next pass, Cho La (5,330m). From there you’ll get the amazing experience of visiting the 5th lake in the Gokyo glacial lake chain. After some R&R in Gokyo, you’ll head for your third and final pass at Renjo La (5,345m). This trek hits Everest region’s most sought after sites, as well as offers challenging treks that will leave you feeling more than accomplished.
       The people you’ll encounter in this region are generally Sherpa. Sherpa have a rich history, running closely in line with that of their Tibetan neighbors to the north. The Sherpa were a large part of the ancient Himalayan Salt Trail and have a long history of being some of the world’s greatest mountaineers. Their Red-Sect Tibetan Buddhism can be seen throughout the region in both art and architecture. You’ll definitely experience a local feel throughout the entire region, as culture & old values still reign supreme here. Make sure to try the delicious Sherpa potato pancake snack, “Riki-kur” & the yak’s butter & mature cheese blend called “Sorma.” You won’t be disappointed!

Namaste from the Himalayas!
