These passes offer spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, including Mount Everest (8,848 meters), Mount Lhotse (8,516 meters), and Mount Nuptse (7,861 meters).

The trek usually starts and ends in Lukla, a small town in the Khumbu region of Nepal.

Along the way, you’ll enjoy seeing breathtaking mountain vistas, including the famous Ama Dablam and Thamserku peaks.

The feeling of standing on top of each pass and taking in the breathtaking vistas is truly rewarding and memorable.

3 Passes Trek Difficulty:

The 3 Passes Trek is known for its challenging terrain, high-altitude passes, and remote wilderness. Trekkers have to prepare for long and strenuous days of hiking, with steep ascents and descents. You need to have prior trekking experience and good physical fitness.

Best Time to do Everest 3 Passes Trek

The best time to do the Everest 3 Passes Trek is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). This season’s weather is relatively stable and the skies are clear. However, it’s important to note that even during these seasons, weather conditions in the Himalayas can be unpredictable and trekkers have to prepare for climate changes.

Lukla Flight Information

Flight Information to /from Lukla: Due to the Kathmandu airport overcrowding, Flights to Lukla (Everest Region) depart from Manthali Airport (Ramechhap) for the busiest season. The distance from Kathmandu to Mathali airport is about 130 kilometers. So it takes about 3.5 to 4 hours to drive. We leave Kathmandu at 1 or 1.30 AM to catch our early morning flights from Manthali to Lukla.

Note: The flight will be departing from March 15 to May 15 and October to November. However, it depends on the decision of the airlines and the civil aviation authority of Nepal.

Lukla Flight Delay or Cancellations

The bad weather conditions and over traffic in Kathmandu airports are the main reasons for delaying and canceling flights. The weather in hilly and Himalayan regions will be changed so quickly. So, We at Himalaya Darshan Treks highly recommend managing a minimum of 1 or 2 extra days for your Everest and Dolpo region treks.

What is the Lukla Flight Weight limitation?

The airlines have a weight limitation of only 15 kilograms (about 33 pounds) per person so please try to make your luggage less than 15 kilograms. Otherwise, you have to pay extra money but it is only possible if there is no overweight on the plane. So, the best option is to make your bag light

Responses & Ratings


One Reply to “Everest Three Passes Trek”

  1. I did the Three Passes Trek in the Everest Region with GB in November 2019.

    The company came highly recommended by well-traveled hiker friends of mine from New Zealand. I was already travelling when I booked the trip but managed to organize it all easily from a tablet on the go as all queries were answered swiftly by GB. Communication was fast and clear.

    He took care of all details for the full itinerary package – drivers, plane transfers etc and helped me to acquire the remaining gear I needed in Kathmandu. The hotel he chose was also very comfortable, with excellent customer service.

    I was initially a little worried about how I would take to the high altitude, as this was my first hike at this height, along with other variables like potential bad weather late in the season but GB put my mind at ease and laid out how we could adapt the trip together with suggested changes and alternative routes depending on how I was feeling on any given day. In the end, we did need to take an alternative route for one of the passes due to a headache that wasn’t improving overnight, but I always felt in control and safe knowing GB’s safety conscious and well-prepared approach would solve any problems quickly.

    Along with Bhim, my porter, a very positive ‘vibe’ was created between the 3 of us on the walk everyday which helped to push me along and gave me extra encouragement, even times when I wasn’t feeling well, or going over slightly difficult terrain. I was always made aware of what was ahead each day on track condition, distances/altitude and weather, as well as having fun learning some Nepali and trying to remember the names of all the mountains along the way! Making it to Everest Base Camp and over the High Passes was certainly a great personal achievement for me which I think I was unlikely to achieve without GB.

    He is also very accommodating to any special requests you may have. He went the extra mile to find me a private room at each teahouse, which wasn’t always easy or guaranteed, so I could have my privacy and sleep as a solo traveler. He adapted the timing of meals and pits tops to suit what worked for me.

    With a calm, patient and engaging manner, he is very intuitive to your needs and interested in his clients. I learned a lot from him about nature, culture and life in Nepal and he has tones of recommendations and tips for further exploring Kathmandu and Nepal which was invaluable.

    Whilst you could walk on your own or with a much bigger group, the attentiveness, flexibility and value-for-money you will get from GB is second-to-none and will make the experience more enjoyable. I think his ability to really listen to his clients allows him to exceed expectations, and guarantees a truly memorable adventure. I wouldn’t trek with anyone else when I go back to Nepal.

    Thank you GB, great memories, hopes to have another adventure with you!
