Undeniably one of the best lodge trek in the Everest region as it is an ultimate circuit trek in the Everest region which covers some of the best parts of Khumbu (Everest) region.

This trek passes through beautiful Sherpa Villages, mani boulders with carved mantras, monastery and untouched Nangpa La Valley. It crosses three high pass over 5,000 m, reaches three summits which provides some stunning views of the lofty Himalayas.  Three Passes trek also takes you to the base camp of the world highest peak, Gokyo region and untouched Nangpa La Valley. The landscape is varied and spectacular; the lodgings and treks ranges from the time worn paths of the Khumbu to the isolated and less frequented Renjo La pass region.
