Earth's Paradise Treks & Expeditions

One of the most exciting treks in the world’s finest and greatest Himalaya range with breathtaking high mountain scenery, Everest 3 pass trek is a true high mountain adventure trip along the greater Himalaya trail. Crossing 3 fabulous high mountain passes over 5000m makes this trek both challenging and rewarding. This trek gives you unforgettable lifetime experience of the greatest Himalaya massif with hundreds of sky soaring peaks, wonderful landscapes, tapering ridges, hanging and active glaciers, icefalls, occasionally the avalanches, glacial milky lakes, challenging multiple high passes,  colorful monasteries & Sherpa villages upto the base of the mountains, Danfe; the national bird of Nepal, Himalayan griffin, Lamagar,   musk deer, spotted deer, blue sheep, beautiful forest of silver birth, rhododendron, pine and alpine tundra.  The Kala Pathar (5,554m) and Gokyo Ri (5490m); the natural view towers provide wonderful summit view of Ama Dablam, Nuptse, Lhotse and the dark Everest pyramid, the world’s highest mountain (8,850m). This trek offers so many surprising views and great experiences.

There are no teahouses near the passes, we have to make a long full day walk with necessary energy food and plenty of water. Camping trip is good for the trip to avoid full day hike in the high elevation but there is another concern for the camping trip is campsite with no water where there is water, the place is much higher. We will have 3 long hiking days with the passes in higher elevation. This trek is ideal for those people who have previous hiking experience in such high elevation.
