EVEREST THREE HIGH PASSES TREK
Everest Three High Passes Trek.
One of the most challenging routes in the Khumbu (Everest) region. The trek continues from Lukla-Namche Bazaar-Thame, goes over Ranjo-La Pass and to Gokyo Ri via Gokyo. From Gokyo, you will cross Nagozumda Glacier to Cho-La Pass and then we follow the way to Everest Base Camp/Kalapathar. You will cross Phokolde Pass from Lobuche and then you will reach Chhukung Valley.
The lore of the Himalayas looms largest around the great 8,000-meter peak massifs of Cho Oyo, Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu. The remote valleys beneath these peaks are threaded by ancient trails. Some like the well-travelled path to Everest Base camp is well known among Western trekkers and mountaineers. Others including the trail through Nangpa La between Namche Bazar and Tibet are known to Tibetan monks and traders but have long been forbidden to Westerners. This exploratory trip is our attempt to offer fresh insight, little trod trails and new visual perspectives on this area of greatest Himalayan peaks.
This trek also traces an important history of the Sherpa people. They settled the region in the late 1400s or early 1500s, arriving from the eastern Tibetan province of Salmo Gang. Sherpas appear to have left their homeland and crossed the Nangpa-La pass (18,749') into Nepal. The economy of the Sherpa Community has traditionally been agriculture, livestock herding and trading between Nepal and Tibet. With the coming of the Mountaineering Expedition since the 1950s, the region has attracted a large number of tourist as climbers and adventure trekkers.

Tips for Trekking staffs.
"I am still very thankful that we had the chance to explore the Sagarmantha Nationalpark with Sherpa Adventures. My boyfriend and I were guided by a great mountaineer. He was very kind and supportive, and we both felt 100% safe during our trip. Thanks to our great Sherpa, who gave us the possibility to discover Nepal from a local perspective. Thank you so much for this unforgettable journey."
