Equipment needed for 3 Passes Trek?

Hi, we are group 3, met everyone on this site 🙂 and planning to do the 3passes-EBC route from 16th of May without a guide. I was wondering how remote this route is and whether we need full camping gear or we can omit those extra equipments? Are crampons/rope etc. mountaineering gears required? 
Cheers, Neha

Hi Lyvie,

It’s not remote, as you’ll pass through villages with tea houses the entire route.
Do check around KTM to make sure the teahouses are open for the days before/after Konga La and Renjo La.

The passes are the only places on this trek where you will see ‘fewer’ trekkers, depending on the season. With three people, as long as you know the route and have some good common sense you’ll be fine.

As far as equipment goes, you don’t need anything. These aren’t technical passes and you simply hike over them.

Glad you have a group together – let us know how it goes 🙂
