Everest three high passes trek is a spellbinding excursion through the challenging high passes of the Everest region. It leaves you with lifetime memories of exploring the Himalayan excursion with the magnetizing huge mountains, Lakes, and glaciers along with the beautiful Sherpa valleys and their remarkable cultural pattern.
The inspiring three passes trek in the Everest region includes some of the most action-packed high passes that are over 5000 meters from the sea level. Flying to Lukla, you pass various Sherpa settlements and walk through the Sagarmatha National Park, you cross the Kongma La Pass (5535m), Cho La Pass (5368m) and Renjo La Pass (5360m), which adjoins the trail of Everest base camp and Gokyo valley. Also, the cultural prosperity is incredible with the colorful monasteries and Chhortens. Exploring the Sherpa capital (Khumjung), you get the spiritual mysteries of the cultural fascinations of the Himalayan leaders. Passing the Tengboche Monastery, you head towards the Kongma La Pass. The prayers flag over the cairn at the top of the pass makes you feel great along with the Himalayan wonders.
Make a side trip to the Everest base camp and Kalapatthar through the rocky moraine trail. Descending to Dzongla, you cross the Chola Pass, which is extremely challenging with steep rocks and strong wind blow and finally descend to the Gokyo valley. Physical fitness and acclimatization should not be underestimated. Spending a hiking day to Gokyo Ri, you cross the last high pass-Renjo La. During the trek, the magnificent Himalayan glory of Mt. Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Kantenga, Kwandge, Tawache, and Thamserku are just amazing. Adventure Club Trek organizes Everest Three High Passes Trek with suitable itinerary and sufficient time for acclimatization. For more information, please feel free to contact us.
Kathmandu to Lukla Flight Delays
The unpredictability of the weather in mountain areas directly affects the flights to and from Lukla. The Twin Otter planes that are used for transport from and to Lukla are reasonably reliable in good weather conditions. But, the flights may be delayed or canceled due to technical problems and extreme weather conditions.To ensure you stay on your schedule in case the Twin Otter flight cancels or delays too far, we can charter you a helicopter. While the helicopter can fly at the visibility of 15,000m, the Twin Otters require 5,000m visibility, according to Nepal Civil Aviation rules.
You can pay for the helicopter in US cash, credit cards or traveler’ cheques directly to our Kathmandu office. We provide a receipt for the payment which you can present to claim the amount back from your travel insurance company. Helicopter charges range from a minimum of US$500 to a maximum of US$3500. Also, we recommend you land in Kathmandu a day before we start the trek. You have enough time to buy trekking gears and beat off the jet lag. Having a few days extra left after your trek is also an excellent way to ensure you don’t miss your international flight in case of difficulties during the trek which might lengthen your trip. It also gives you a way to beat the flight cancellation to or from Lukla in case of severe weather.
Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are traveling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of the trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the Annapurna,Langtang, or any other regions.
Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
