Cho La pass in Nepal.

Three Passes Trek (Kongma La, Renjo La, & Cho La)
Most recent trip: October 4 to November 3, 2018
Land Cost – TBD

The Three Passes Trek in the Everest Region has become the goal of trekkers who want a more challenging trip than the straight forward Everest Base Camp Trek. This trek is a month trip (US to US) with 23 days on the trail. International Climbing & Trekking runs a more expedition like trek with tent camping, our own cook staff, porters, and Sherpas. This type of trekking allows us more flexibility, safer food and water, and the ability to camp on the passes which eliminates 18 hour days to cross over the passes from one tea house to the next. By camping high in the passes we have a much greater chance of success.

If you're interested in this adventure, please contact Celia & Rick for a personal interview to see if this trek is a good fit.
