What the name Three Passes Trek indicates?

Why Everest Three Pass Trek?
- Rewarding Challenges
It offers a more challenging trek experience with awesome rewards that take the adventure to a different level. Traversing the three high passes make the experience even more memorable along with offering you an opportunity to explore the raw natural beauty of Nepal especially the Khumbu region.
- Bestowed with Natural Elegance
Most of the parts of this vast and elegant region are quieter and undisturbed. The Everest three pass trek takes you through the less crowded backcountry of the astonishing Khumbu region, which makes the trek even more enjoyable. Also as the trek is quite challenging and less renowned, you won’t find as many people as you would see at the other treks, which makes the experience more immersive and once-in-a-lifetime experience where you can take delight of the breathtaking nature in a calmer way.
- Visit to Thame
The Three Passes Trek will also make you relish the beauty of the traditional Sherpa Village of Thame that is rich in historical elegance.

Besides the Sherpas, Thame is also the home to Tibetan Buddhist scholar and philanthropist Lama Zopa Rinpoche who established the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT) along with Lama Thubten Yeshe. Apart from its famous people, the village houses one of the oldest monasteries in the Khumbu region that is famous for its annual Mani Rimdu festival. If you are a seeker of flexibility, beauty, spirituality and strength, then the Thame village has it all to offer you.
