Everest region 3 passes trekking
Three Passes trek is a challenging trekking journey in Everest Region though this trekking trail passes through some of the most spectacular landscapes in the Himalaya with natural view, culture and tradition of Sherpa People. Also this trek is a window into traditional Sherpa villages and 'gompas' (monasteries), their mountain Buddhist culture and their sacred peaks and valley.
Not only peaks in that area, the Everest region is an incredibly spiritual place, and we have the chance to visit its many colorful gompas, and have tea with their monks; Tengboche, Pangboche, Namche, Khumjung, Khunde, Thame and Lawudo Gompa.
Highlights of 3 high passes treks are normally extended the Chhukhung Valley and Chhukhung Ri (peak), hiking to Ama Dablam Base Camp, trekking to Everest Base Camp and climbing Kala Pattar, the Gokyo lakes and the sublime views from Gokyo Ri (peak), and crossing the Renjo La to emerge in the pristine Thame valley which leads to the Nangpa La and Tibet. Throughout, we are surrounded by spectacular 8000 meter peak panoramas.
Spring season and autumn season are the perfect times to trek in the Everest region, the peaks accentuated by clear, blue sky and without the hoards of trekkers who come during the peak months. Wildlife such as the Himalayan tahr, musk deer, danphe (Himalayan pheasant, Nepal's national bird), blood pheasant, Himalayan snow-cock and snow-pigeon and chukkar roam the mountain-sides, and if you come in the spring, it's rhododendron season, so the valleys are filled with reds.
