But we advise against buying mineral water in plastic bottles, as currently there are no provisions for disposing of plastic materials in the Himalayas. Instead, please buy water purification aqua tablets to purify the normal water as the normal water is available at the campsite on the hiking route. If the guest doesn’t like the Aqua tablets flavor then the traveler can buy boiled water from the lodges.

If the condition worsened you will be airlifted to the hospital in Kathmandu.

Question: What happens if my scheduled flight in the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu route gets delayed or canceled?.

Helicopter rescue can also be used, which depends on the situation. So, we recommend you allocate a couple of extra days after your Everest trek so that you will not miss your international flight back.

How hard is the 3 passes trek?

Majestic three passes trek is rated “Challenging” and super adventure high passes trek in the Mount Everest region in Sagarmatha National Park. The passes are above 17,800 feet and a very serious adventure given its high pass crossings.

It is more challenging rather than its sibling treks Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes, but not quite as challenging as trekking peaks. If you never hiked at a serious altitude before (the highest altitude trek similar or above 5,400 meters) or on a trek longer than 6 days, it is tough.

The distance and elevation maps are just a guideline about the edge of fitness level. Although it is a reputable hike to cross over the adventure high passes, it is not fit for novices.

Along the routes, you can walk at your own pace, with plenty of stops for rest. Adventure Everest base camp and three pass trek is possible with anti-clockwise also and it’s possible at any time except winter throughout the year.

Three Passes Trek Review

Couldn't have asked for a better trip, thanks to Gokyo Treks

December 30, 2019

We couldn’t recommend Gokyo Treks more highly. From start to finish, everything was seamlessly organized for us. When we first arrived in the busy Kathmandu airport we had to queue with hundreds of others to get our visas but our driver patiently waited for us outside. We were then taken to our comfortable hotel in Thamel for the night and Ammar gave us the rundown of our tour (with a welcome tea on arrival, of course). Ammar is a seasoned professional and will happily help answer any questions you may have prior to or during your trip.

For our trek, we had the fantastic Som as our tour guide. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide! Som has been with Gokyo Treks since the start and is so passionate about his job and sharing stories about Nepal. He is an absolute wealth of knowledge, but he also deeply cares for his clients and will go above and beyond to make sure you are well looked after. Not only that but he is hilarious! When you are trekking together for 16 days, you need a light hearted tour guide who you can share a laugh with and Som will happily smile and laugh with you. Our porter Buddi was also fantastic. Although we can’t speak the same language, Buddi has a smile that will light up a room and makes you feel so welcome everyday when he comes to collect your bags.

By the end of the tour, we are more than just clients- we are now lifelong friends.

If you are looking for an authentic Nepalese experience, book Gokyo Treks.

Three Passes Trek in Sagarmatha National Park

October 30, 2019

I successfully completed my Three Passes Trek in Sagarmatha National Park with the help from Gokyo Treks & Expedition. The agency helped me arranged my porterguide and flights between Kathmandu and Lukla.

Agency operator Ammar was very friendly and helpful. Although I opted for a self-planned free and easy trek, Ammar offered me lots of good advice during my planning. When I arrived in Kathmandu, Ammar also met up with me to guide me through the trek arrangement. The service was professional.

EBC Hiking via Gokyo Lakes - Chola Pass

April 12, 2019

Ammar, owner of the Gokyo Treks Company came to know from one of our office colleagues. He booked everything for us from we appeared to the airport in Kathmandu until the day that we leave. Everything is very satisfying throughout the whole trip. From shopping in Thamel Street (Our Guide Kamal follow us around the street to advise us for what is the appropriate hiking gear to purchase) to overcome to the 3 high passes adventure treks.

The guide will give us a briefing every evening throughout the whole hiking trip to get us not only physically and mentally ready for the second-day hike but also to carry the correct gear. Besides, he also briefs us on a lot of news about the mountain, how to prevent AMS and more.

Not to mention that our assistant guide Mr Bhupal did a really good job serving us from the daily hiking route as well as in the guest houses. Our four ever-smiling porters (Kieran, Hira, and Prem) did a great job too. The three porters also come back down to assist us when they reach the Chola Pass peak and Kongma la peak, contributing a lot to our successful crossing.

Before leaving to Europe, Ammar invited us for a typical Nepali dinner. It was an opportunity to talk more with Ammar about the volunteering organization that he helped society in various ways, including sponsoring kids who lost parents in Earthquake 2015.

In summary, Ammar and his team were honest and professional. Great arrangement and communication with Ammar were very quick. – Thomas, Woldgang and Tine Kilbert, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany.
