Essential Information

Best Time for Everest Three High Pass Trek

The weather is the most important component. Though trekking is easy in some seasons, residents and travelers walk to Everest Base Camp year-round. For the Everest Three High Pass Trek, spring and autumn are the best times to go. Let's explore the ideal times to travel and evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of each.

Spring (March to May):

Many hikers visit in the spring, which starts in March, to avoid the wettest conditions. Even though it will be comparatively milder during this time, the nights will still be chilly and snowy. Every day as you ascend higher, the temperature will decrease significantly.

The vegetation and creatures that have been dormant suddenly become active when the temperature warms. Rhododendron blossoms in particular are abundant on the slopes. Throughout these months, the area experiences temperatures ranging from 18°C to -12°C.

You get a clearer, more detailed view of the Khumbu region. In Nepal, the trekking season formally begins in March. There will be a noticeable rise in the amount of visitors using the trails.

Summer/Monsoon (June to August):

In Nepal, the rainy season lasts from the end of June until mid-August. Landslides, muddy, slick roads, and heavy downpours are common features of the monsoon season. Rain gear and season-appropriate apparel must be taken into consideration.

Between 27°C and 5°C is the hottest temperature range during the monsoon seasons. There's a potential that at this time, flights to and from Lukla could be canceled. But, because fewer people visit during this time of year, this month is excellent if you want quiet strolling paths.

The extreme heat and humidity that come with this wet season are present outside. Floods and landslides are also more likely as a result of the continuous rains.

Winter (December to February):

Winter brings freezing temperatures and precipitation to the Everest region, making it challenging to climb to the high altitudes. Additionally, there is a lot of snowfall there. The area is unusually cold, and there is a lot of snow on the pathways.

At lower altitudes, daytime temperatures can vary from 0°C to 10°C, but higher elevations will see significantly lower temperatures. But winter offers you a fantastic chance to see the snow in the Khumbu region. In the Himalayan range, wintertime snowfall has a mysterious quality.

Trekking at this time of year demands preparation with an experienced trekking guide and the appropriate cold-weather clothing. Throughout this winter move, you must exercise extreme caution.

Fall / Autumn (September to November):

In Nepal, the autumn is another well-liked trekking season. For the Everest 3 High Passes Trek, this is also one of the best seasons. Though it's a little colder than spring, there are excellent mountain vistas.

Autumn also brings a fairly dry climate with lower chances of precipitation and snowfall. There will be clear skies, comfortable temperatures, and stable weather. Because the skies are usually clear, trekkers may take in stunning panoramas of the snow-capped mountains set against an unforgettable blue sky.

Trekkers from all over the world travel to Nepal during the autumnal season to enjoy the festivities. Hindus celebrate their most significant festivals during these months, so you may fully immerse yourself in the joyous atmosphere.

Autumn temperatures range from the lowest point at -10 degrees Celsius in Gorekshep to the highest point at 25 degrees Celsius at Lukla/Phakding.

Note: Find out the Best Time for Everest three high pass trek to have a great experience as well as to do the trek without any difficulties.

Everest Three High Pass Trek Difficulty

Compared to the traditional Everest Base Camp Trek, the Three Passes Trek is regarded as being slightly more difficult. It is challenging to get to this remote and stunning location because there is no road access.

It includes an exciting ascend over the three high passes in the area, Renjo La, Kongma La, and Cho La, which are all over 5000 meters high. The trail twists through many side valleys and climbs and drops, so you might walk for up to seven or eight hours a day there.

Therefore, the trek is appropriate for trekkers who have already experienced trekking; you do not need to be a professional athlete or mile runner. Therefore, the journey will be more pleasant and enjoyable depending on how active you are.

Cardiovascular exercises such as walking and running are excellent ways to be in shape for your chance to explore the Three High Passes. The Everest Three Passes trip is difficult because of the elevation and required acclimatization.

It takes more physical effort to trek at a higher height than it does at a lower one. The Everest Three Passes journey reaches its highest point at Kongma La Pass. Breathing becomes harder as you ascend higher due to the thinner air. It is possible to help your body adjust to the thin air by resting at a lower elevation before traveling to a higher elevation.

While the Everest trekking route has undergone some development, other trekking regions such as Gokyo Valley and Thame Valley remain relatively undeveloped. Along the walking routes are typical teahouses with inadequate facilities.

While trekking, mental fitness is the most crucial aspect. One of Nepal's most isolated locations is the Everest area. Both taking a hot shower and getting into your warm bed will be missed. One of the primary three passes trek difficulties is mental tiredness as well.

Since the walk takes several days, patience and self-awareness are essential. The pace should be focused and each person's progress should be acknowledged.

Foods During Everest Three Pass Trek

Because you will be climbing to such high altitudes on your adventure, you are going to require extra nutrition, primarily in the form of proteins and carbohydrates. For you to stay healthy and full of energy, you need a good food diet rich in hygienic foods.

Trekking at high altitudes should be done without non-vegetarian food or drinks such as beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverages. A range of meals are available at teahouses along the Everest Three Passes Trek. The Everest base camp trek food is similar to Everest high pass areas.

Even foreign cuisine created by talented chefs is offered at popular tourist spots like Namche and Lukla. Due to the difficulty of transportation, food options may become less varied and prices may rise as you ascend.


The lodges and guesthouses where you spend the night while hiking serve breakfast. For any hiker, breakfast is without a doubt the most crucial meal of the day. Here is a list of the most well-liked breakfasts in the area.

  • Tibetan breads, also known as Gurung bread in the Annapurna region, are oil-fried breads.
  • Corn Husks.
  • Chapati (dry bread, wheat bread from the area) with cheese.
  • Scrambled, boiled, and fried eggs.
  • A major energy source, porridge is a comforting, warm grain staple.
  • Jam-topped French toast.
  • peanut butter with honey.
  • Muesli.
  • Hashes brown.
  • pancakes.
  • cereal with milk.
  • vegetable-based products.
  • Milk tea and black tea are only two of the many variations available to satisfy your daily caffeine fix or the soothing flavor of tea.


On the Everest Three High Passes Trek, lunch and dinner options range from simple eats like Tibetan bread with jam to a variety of meat and vegetable meals. The menu offers both well-known and traditional foods that are meant to fulfill a trekker's physical and spiritual needs.

A range of sandwiches, pizza, rice with curries, burgers, dumplings, and macaroni will be served for lunch, along with a selection of soups, steaks, potatoes, yak steak, and desserts. Thukpa (noodle soup) and Momos are also served.

However, nothing compares to Dal Bhat's nutritional worth and energy. This traditional Nepalese food is served with rice, vegetables, pickles, lentil soup (dal), and occasionally meat (usually buffalo or chicken).


The menus for dinner and lunch are the same, and choosing a hearty meal for the evening usually consists of regional dumplings, noodles, pasta, spaghetti or muesli. The meals on the menu are freshly prepared and healthful, and they are served to mountain hikers by hygienic experts.

In certain places, the traditional Himalayan meal sherpa stew tastes like a milder vegetable stew, but in other places, it tastes more like a fiery veggie curry. The stew has an abundance of fresh ingredients, such as onions, garlic, carrots, green beans, and greens

Accommodation On Everest Three Pass Trek

Along the route, there are several places to stay. There are numerous tourist-friendly tea houses along the Everest Three Pass Trek route, offering simple lodging options. Another crucial aspect of the journey is accommodation.

In contrast to other trekking routes, this trail's lodging options have improved and grown over time. However, accommodations in the upper regions remain basic, the facilities are restricted to the lower sections.

The most typical lodging along the trekking trail is found in teahouses or lodges. Typically, the rooms have simply two or three single beds, nice and warm blankets, pillows, and comfortable mattresses. They may or may not have adjoining bathrooms and wonderful views.

For female travelers traveling alone, a single private room will be available during the trek for an additional fee. The qualities of lodges differ geographically. Usually, local resources like stone, wood, and tin are used in their construction.

Showers heated by gas or solar power are available in most tea houses. A hot shower at a tea house costs between $2 and $6 USD. There is no charge for the cold showers. In the Everest region, mid-range lodges are becoming more and more popular since they are more sophisticated and practical than tea houses. They are the perfect balance of affordable prices and good amenities.

A few lavish lodges have opened up along the trekking trails in the Everest region in recent years. The bakeries and coffee shops in Kathmandu are symbolic of towns like Lukla, Namche, and Dingboche.

They offer great dining options in addition to cozy rooms. However, you won't find a typical lodging up ahead from the Namche or at a higher height. TheEverest base camp accommodation is littlebetter than high pass accommodation.

Drinking Water On Everest Three Pass Trek

You must drink a lot of water because it's important to stay hydrated at higher elevations. For trekking in high altitudes, water is essential because it's the best defense against severe alpine sickness.

Water for trekking can be obtained at any trekking lodge or shop along the route; a standard bottle of mineral water costs one to three dollars per litter. Although it's a convenient choice, be aware that prices may vary.

Water from taps or streams is treated by many hikers using water filters or water purification tablets. These tablets kill germs and dangerous microorganisms. Pump filters and straw filters are two examples of the several types of water filters.

UV purifiers disinfect water by using ultraviolet light to destroy bacteria. These portable gadgets have the potential to treat water effectively. However, in really cold or dirty water, they may not be as dependable.

Drinking tap water directly on the Everest Three Passes trek is generally discouraged due to the risk of waterborne illnesses. It is therefore strongly advised to bring a reusable water bottle for drinking water. You can ask for safe water at the local lodges and tea shops along the journey, as many offer boiled water for a little cost.

Remember that during hikes at high altitudes, being well-hydrated is essential. For this reason, it is very advised that you pack a reusable water bottle for the Everest Three High Passes Trek to carry water.

Electricity On Everest Three Pass Trek

Therefore, the internet and electricity facilities are quite good when compared to other hiking locations in Nepal. On the Everest Three High Passes path, electricity is available at most teahouses.

The tea house features solar panels before and after the passes and a high elevation if there is no electricity. Electronic device charging, such as those for phones and cameras, is typically an additional expense.

It is advised that you get a backup battery and power bank in case the power goes out for a few hours or a day in order to ensure that you don't miss the opportunity to photograph the unique sight.

To charge your electrical gadgets, it is highly advised that you bring a power bank. Also, charging stations will be in high demand throughout the busy trekking season. Purchasing an electric plug adaptor is advised if necessary, as some tea places lack universal plugs.

Depending on the location and elevation, the basic cost to recharge an electrical gadget ranges from $3 to $7 US. Therefore, sunshine serves as a great solar charger, which is why trekkers in remote locations frequently use it.

Communication on Everest Three Pass Trek

The Everest Three High Passes Trek's isolated and high-altitude setting will make communication (both mobile and Wi-Fi) difficult. In certain sections of the trek especially at lower elevations, Ncell or Nepal Telecom may have irregular mobile network coverage.

Depending on the exact trekking path you are on and the altitude you are at, different cell phone signals are available at different times. Ncell and Nepal Telecom are the two largest cellular network operators in Nepal. They offer data, SMS, and voice calls, among other things.

On the Everest 3 High Passes Trek, utilising the Wi-Fi in the lodges and teahouses is included in a nominal service cost. While trekking in the Everest region, getting in touch with your loved ones won't be a problem. Wi-Fi reliability and speed can differ considerably amongst teahouses. Remember that as you get higher in altitude, Wi-Fi may become less accessible.

For emergency communication, certain teahouses and hiking guides may have satellite phones in more isolated locations without internet access or cell phone coverage. They are more dependable and offer superior coverage in remote areas, despite their potential cost. It's a means of communicating in an emergency.

The Everest Link Network, a private Wi-Fi network, covers certain regions of the Everest region. This is accessible in well-known trekking locations like Tengboche and Namche Bazaar. However, the network might not be accessible for the whole trek through the Everest Three High Passes.

Although it has improved recently, communication throughout the Everest region journey is still limited. In addition to satellite phones, high-altitude communication devices like High Frequency or VHF (Very High Frequency) radios are sometimes taken on journeys.

Permits Required for Everest Three High Pass Trek

There are currently two different kinds of permits needed for trekking to the Everest Three High Passes Trek. First and foremost, a Sagarmatha National Park permit is required for all trekkers to enter the Everest region.

Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, encompasses most of the Everest Region. It has the biggest glaciers and the tallest mountains in the world. The Three Passes Trek Permit cost supports park maintenance and conservation initiatives within the protected Sagarmatha National Park.

The Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit will be useful once you arrive in Lukla and go to Phakding and other places. An entry permit to Sagarmatha National Park can be obtained at the Nepal Tourism Board located in Kamaladi, Kathmandu. You can hike up to Monjo Village and get it at the accessible checkpost if you are already in Lukla.

The price to enter the Everest Region National Park is shown below:

  • NPR 100 per person for Nepalese, except 13% VAT.
  • NPR 3,000 per person for foreigners, excluding 13% VAT.

The high heights attained along the Everest Three Passes trek create a serious risk of altitude sickness.

However, altitude sickness is difficult to recognize, and it can be challenging to tell if someone would experience it or not. High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) are two severe, potentially fatal illnesses that can range from minor pain.

Since altitude sickness is a serious risk in the Everest region, acclimatization is an essential part of trekking. It is possible to help your body adjust to the thin air by resting at a lower elevation before traveling to a higher elevation.

The following are the primary signs and symptoms of altitude sickness:

  • Sleep issues.
  • Dizziness.
  • Decrease in appetite.
  • Breath shortness.
  • Headache.
  • Fatigue or nausea

The body loses water at high elevations due to faster breathing and more urine. When trekking in the Everest region, nutrition and hydration are essential for controlling and preventing altitude sickness.

The following are the precautions against altitude sickness:

  • Apply the saying "climb high, sleep low."
  • To keep your body hydrated, try to consume four to five liters of water each day.

The trail experiences a decrease in the number of villages as you ascend, and the quality of the toilets also changes similarly. The Khumbu region typically experiences freezing temperatures, which causes the sitting bathrooms to become overly cold and stenchy.

Remember that most tea shops and hotels don't have toilet paper or tissue available. Therefore, it is preferable to pack toilet paper, wipes, sanitisers and other personal hygiene items for the hike.

At higher altitudes where the good in question is usually limited, wet wipes are a preferable option if soap and water are not available. A bucket of water is used to clean most of these toilets, and flushing is done by hand. You can use toilet paper if it makes you uncomfortable.
