3 Passes Trek, Everest Region, Nepal


Crossing 3 Passes above 5300 meters, this hike puts you in the middle of some of the most spectacular scenery in the world.


We completed this 18 day trek in October of 2018. We did not, however, do the Kala Patthar and Everest Base Camp spurs. Add two days if you want to include them.

Note that while the yellow line denotes an unmarked walking route on Google Maps these are still good well marked trails.
