Be sure to be mesmerized by the turquoise waters of Gokyo lakes, glaciers suspended on the Himalayas. Other important destinations that we visit are the Renjo, Chola and Kongma La passes. Also trek to world's most sought after trekking destinations - the Everest Base Camp.
Another great attraction is the Kalapatthar - a mountain of black rock. The Kalapatthar Top is one of the most sought after vantage point to see Mt. Everest. Experience the unforgettable moments by witnessing an extraordinary natural and cultural landscape. Enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views of above 8000m massifs and other mountain ranges.
We invite you to experience our amazing Everest Three Passes Trek-21 Days package which focuses on adventure, fun, cultural exposure, and not the least, proper acclimatization. The real trekking begins from and ends in Lukla - the gateway to the Everest Region. Other important trekking destinations that we visit are Gorakshep, Tengboche, and the Sherpa capital of Namche Bazzar.If we are a real adventurer looking for more of a challenging trek crossing some of the most famous high passes in the world, we definitely need to consider Himalayan Glacier's Everest Three Passes. If we are looking for trek slightly less adventurous than this involves suburb views of Gokyo Lakes along with Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, probably "Everest Base Camp Trek via Gokyo Lakes-18 days" would be ideal for us! Himalayan Glacier's "Everest Base Camp-14 days" itinerary would be perfect for us if we are young, energetic, physically fit, and yearn to hike up to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar but will have a limited amount of time to trek. If we are a novice trekker and want some easier itinerary but want to visit the Everest Base Camp, Everest Base camp-17days itinerary would be best option.

This arrangement ensures that any body in the group is sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. Himalayan Glacier can run the Everest Three Passes Trek for group of any size.

Autumn (mid Sept to mid Dec) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Three Passes Trek. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. But the nights are cold and can fall to freezing level in higher elevations. Winter (Dec, Jan, Feb) is also good for Everest Base Camp Trek, only issue is cold (obviously). Trekking in Summer or Monsoon(June, July) will be affected by rain but Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. The trekking routes are crowded during Spring and Autumn. But during Monsoon and Winter the routes are not packed and visitors could enjoy rather best of nature.
