3 High Passes and the Summit of Island Peak

The 3 High Passes of the Everest region is a fantastic trek that can be undertaken by any reasonably fit person. While some days are hard and long the sense of achievement at the end of the day is great.

I have done the trek twice now and it’s surprising how different I found things the 2nd time round, The weather and snow depth and cold can really change the experience depending on the type of year you travel.

Both times I travelled in April both for a similar time frame, the most recent was a little longer as I also climbed Island peak.

This time of year expect Snow in the afternoons with temps dropping as low as -16 at night .

My budget for food each day $25 USD was perfect

  1. hi guys! how many days you think its necessary and when and where do you pretend to start? do you pretend to go to EBC too?

    i’ll fly to lukla in may 01 to do the EBC+GOKYO and back to KTM may19… well, i’m planning to do this in a non-close schedule, without agencies, just a porter. so, i think i can change some aspects. what do you think? thanks!

  2. Hi Adrian,
    I had this trip already plan for next april.
    with additional climbing Island Pk Iguess you did the way clockwise. But can you tell me more about the way you manage the climbing part from Chukung, (local guide, agency, renting gear…extra costs, etc) Thanks for feed back

    Hay Francois,
    Talk to Nir from Peace Nepal or Boda from Snowy Horizon they can set up a base camp and climbing guide package.

    some gear can be found Chukung for about $60USD harness, Crampons, figure 8, rope ice axe and climbing boots.
    it’s all old gear so if you have some of your own best to take it with you.

    good luck.
