Difficulty of the Everest Three Passes Trek

Sharing the experience with our new customers, the Everest Three Passes Trek is very difficult as compared to the other treks in Nepal. Trekking over 3 high passes, which are over 5,000m, is extremely difficult and tiring to climb. This trekking package is 14 days long, which takes a lot of stamina and physical strength to complete. Trekkers have to walk for 6–8 hours a day on a sloppy, flat, rough, snowy, and rocky trail, which adds extra difficulty to this trek. Hence, it is recommended to have preparations of 2-3 months before trekking over 3 passes. Teahouses along the routes are very satisfying for taking rest, which provides some ease while trekking. But the magnificent views of the Himalayas, glaciers, sky, and surroundings make you forget all your tiredness and sorrows and hypnotize you with their beauty.

Trek Distance to Everest Base Camp via Three High Passes

During this trek, trekkers encounter off-pitch, sloppy, slippery glaciers; a narrow pathway; and over 5,000 meters. The total distance of the Everest Three Passes Trek is 165 kilometers, which takes 18 days to complete, but the itinerary is completed in 14 days with 7-8 hours of hiking every day.

When is the best time to trek the Short Everest Three High Passes?

If you are looking for the best times for the Everest Three High Passes Trek, then February-May and mid-September-November are the best times. These months are the peak and most favorable season for trekking in the Everest region. These months are a busy season for trekking and peak climbing. During this season, the weather and temperature are favorable as days are warmer and nights are cooler. Spring and autumn offer crystal clear views of Mount Everest and surrounding peaks. Besides the spring and autumn seasons, the trekkers only visit during the off-season during winter (December-February) and summer/monsoon (June-August) to experience extreme adventure and excitement in life. The temperature can be -29 degrees. Otherwise, it is best to trek to Everest three times in November, December, and January. February is the best month to get more facilities at the hotels and not have any risk of flights because of fewer passengers.

We, Mountain Magic Treks, believe in quality services and client satisfaction. We offer you a decade-experienced guide with fluent English-speaking skills, porters to carry your luggage for you, etc. If you can manage your time, you can add Island Peak climbing to your itinerary for extra adventure and excitement.

Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner is included in our  packages. Your guide will suggest about delicious and fresh food during the trekking, hygienic and each place special food during your trip. Mountain restaurant owner prefers that not to order many dishes and waste food as they would like to cater more trekkers with limited food before runoff stuck. It’s a week or more day’s hard works to Porters and caravans to bring food to these places. During this trekking you will usually have breakfast and dinner at the same Lodge, Lunch will be eaten at one of the trail side restaurants on route while you walking during the day. 


A Tea House is a combination of a guest house, restaurant, and social hang out. A private room is available in most tea houses, except for high altitudes ones where it will be just dormitories. The Lodges are fairly basic. The room is spare with twin, single, and triple beds but most of the hotels has twin rooms more than others and very little additional furniture to keep your gears separate. Blankets are generally provided. There is a large dining hall warmed by the Bukhara stove (an iron cylinder, fitted with a chimney duct, in which a log fire is lighted. There is normally no electric lighting in the room unless the village has hydroelectric power. The dining room usually has solar lighting.Most tea houses now also have electricity for charging small appliances- mobile phones and cameras- and there will be a small charge for this.  

Drinking water

Mountain Magic Treks provides unlimited chlorine/lodine treated water on the trek. All the tea houses have mineral water and boiled water for trekkers upon additional cost but cost is very high so that we advise to buy empty bottle and use tap water which using at the restaurants kitchen and can use chlorine / lodine . We discourage the purchase of mineral water and bottled water while on the trek as plastic bottles and difficult to dispose of and have become an environmental problem.
