Three Passes Trek

Hi all,

I had originally planned to do the Manaslu/Tsum Valley trek however it appears this trekking route will not be open this season.

I will therefore be attempting to complete the Everest Three High Passes Trek crossing the Renjo La (5338m), Chola La (5380m) & Kongma La Passes.

I have a detailed itinerary and cost breakdown from a company that I have been in contact with for over a year which I can provide to anyone interested in the trek.

I can be flexible with almost everything so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions! 🙂

  1. I completely forgot to add that I plan to trek from Jiri to Lukla before starting the 3HP trek! This will take about 6 days and is included in the itinerary

  2. Hey guys, im going with Aki too, we met through trekkingpartners and are both excited to trek “3 passes”, anyone else who is interested let us know!

  3. I’m interested in joining in, is there any way you would be interested in an earlier start date? Would more people bring the cost of the guide down? thanks!

    • Hi kate, i hope to be on the bus for jiri on the 28th. Aki and i have been exchanging tips via email. besides start dates, the main difference between our plans is that i am planning to go independently, without a guide. You’re welcome to join me if you’d like.

  4. Hey Guys!!! I’m planning to start the trek from Jiri around Oct 3. Planning it independently. If someone is planning the trek around the same date, do reply.


  5. Hello!!!! I just got back last night, totally exhausted from my three passes trek. Some tips: first and foremost, the trek in from Jiri is a fucking huge pain in the ass, and I don’t say that lightly. The trail is arduous, almost constantly steep and it’s likely to be raining/foggy for most of the time (speaking from experience). Get a bus or jeep to PHAPLU/ SALLERI instead!!! It’s three days closer to Lukla and you still get plenty of acclimatization and experience. (The jeep ride was 10 hours including 5 hrs up through the mountains with everyone puking.) As things worked out, I flew into Lukla and hiked out to Phaplu. I hired a porter from Namche to Namche and carried my bag on the hike out. At 15 kg and 18 days into the trek, my bag felt much too heavy, but I wasn’t able to find another porter. Keep your bag a light as possible. Consider bringing an umbrella.

    Honestly, if I would do it again I would fly from Lukla both ways and just be prepared to have to wait out the weather. Everything was fantastic above Lukla, but my trek south of Lukla was basically hell. Now that I’m home, I can say that with a smile.

    If you’re still in town maybe we can meet up, but feel free to call 981 034 4640 or email any questions you may have.

    Good luck, good trekking!
