If you are looking for an adventurous and beautiful trek in Nepal, the Everest Three Pass Trek can be a good choice with regard to the rewarding views of the mountains and beautiful scenery. Most of the trail continues to the Everest Base Camp and only few parts are covered with ice and snow, e.g. the high passes such as the Kongbala Pass (5335 m), Chola Pass (5368 m) and Renjola Pass (5360 m). Apart from the high passes, if the weather is not favourable, you can expect snow on some sections of this trek. Physically quite demanding, this trek offers a lot of beautiful views of landscapes. During this trip you will often be at greater altitudes in comparison to easier treks and you will have an opportunity to reach several viewpoints. Though this trail is meant for physically tough trekkers, you will find it most rewarding and full of adventures. The Everest Three Pass Trek leads the trekkers to the Everest Base Camp, Kalapattar and Gokyo Ri, being the most popular destinations for every trekker in the Everest Region. The Everest Three Pass Trek covers all the major attractions of the Everest Region. If you dream of high mountain passes and want to see great mountain views, this trek could be one of the best choices.
