Adding to the beauty of the snow-capped mountains, we witness the beautiful turquoise lakes, glaciers, moraines, and a fantastic landscape with diverse natural habitats. As challenging as the trek is, these prominent factors make this trek a momentous journey. The scenery is diversified yet majestic; the lodgings and trail range from one of the most traveled routes of Khumbu to the secluded and less visited high passes of Everest. Situated at a higher altitude, we take this trek slow and steady as we absorb the beauty of the humongous mountains on every step. 

We start our journey with a scenic flight to Lukla(2,850m) traversing between the alluring Himalayas. We hike till Phakding(2,650m) and adjust with the thinning air. We move ahead to Namche Bazaar(3,440m) and indulge in the luxury of the region. We get all the facilities there as we get in the cities. Thereby, we can shop for gear for our trek or enjoy a variety of cuisines and drinks. We spend an acclimatization day at Namche Bazaar and stroll around the alleys as we discover new gems with every step. We hike ahead from Thame(3,750m) to reach Lungden(4,500m). We trek to Gokyo Lakes(4,750m) through Renjo La Pass(5,340m/17,520ft). As we traverse through our first pass, our excitement amplifies with the enhanced sceneries. We halt at Gokyo Village for acclimatization and hike up to Gokyo Ri(5,350m). We trek further to Thagnak(4,700m). On our way to Dzongla(4,855m), we encounter our second high pass. The challenging trail is hard to conquer but not impossible. With a slow and steady pace, we will cover the journey and enjoy the beauty inexpressible in words. We move past Lobuche(4,910m) to reach Everest Base Camp(5,364m/17,598ft). As we reach the foothills of the mighty Everest, we celebrate our victory and enjoy the enchanting beauty of the Himalayas. We cannot see the mighty Mount Everest from the base camp as of which we ascent further to Kala Patthar(5,550m18,208ft). With sight such pleasant, we’ll be able to see sun-kissed Mount Everest and the majestic Khumbu Glacier.

We descend to Pheriche(4,250m) via Gorak Shep. We head to Tengboche and then to Namche Bazar. We let our muscles loose here. With all descend paths, we may hurt our ankles and knees. We relax and walk the way back comfortably with a fresh and delightful memory of the passes and the base camp. We enjoy the final glimpse of the Himalayas as we hike back from Namche Bazaar to Lukla. We fly back to Kathmandu in between the clouds and the mountain.

Best Time to Trek Everest High Passes Trek

The weather is one of the most important factors to look at when deciding to trek to the Everest region because no one is beyond nature. The live forecast of the Everest region can be gained here, yet it’s very hard to predict the weather. People trek 12 months of the year up to Everest Two High Passes Trek but certainly, there are ups and downs in every season, It is best suited to trek during the spring and autumn as the sky is crystal clear from dusk till dawn, the rainy weather stops and thick sun-blocking clouds also fades. The magic of clear azure skies provides the most spectacular vistas. With added those breathtaking views, the temperature is also exquisite with sunlight being warm and the environment after delving of the sun is not as cold as other months.

Though during the winters and monsoon, it becomes a bit challenging to trek due to heavy snowfall, a cold temperature that’s what enthuses many trekkers.

January to February

This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. This when there is heavy snowfall in the mountains and can result in extremely cold temperatures. Though the daytime may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the night time would be extremely cold but it’s perfectly fine to trek in these months as discovery world trekking make sure of every possible safety during the trek but if you are allergic to extreme cold, you shouldn’t be trekking at these months or else people trek 12 months of the year and leave their footprints around the world’s highest peaks.

Temperature: Temperature ranges from 15°C to -15°C.

March to April

This is one of the best times of the season to hike in the Everest region. The weather is very favorable this month. Stunning views of the Himalaya ranges and glaciers will be seen. March being the beginning of the spring season, the weather starts to warm up during these months. During these months, all flora and fauna dormant throughout the winter back to life feeding and breeding in the sun-kissed temperatures. Temperatures may start increasing from the mid of March and with clear skies, snow mountains will be seen at their best. Many trekkers often succeed in their expedition at this time.

Temperature: Around 18 °C. At night, the average minimum temperatures drop down to around -12 °C. 

May to June

This is also the ideal time for trekking right before the rainfall. Nepal starts its rainfall from the end of June till the middle of August. The season of spring and summer makes the trek much more enjoyable.

Temperature- Around 25°C at daylight and it drops down to around -5°C. 

July to August

The rainfall hits at its peak during this time, below 3500 meters. Due to heavy rainfall, Flights to Lukla may get canceled at the beginning or end of the trek but trekkers are seen in those months trekking towards the Everest region, it’s challenging but not impossible if you choose to trek in these months Discovery world trekking will take care of your safety at its fullest as it does in every month but as the way is not that favorable it's not highly recommended to trek in these months but the rainfall also provides spectacular views of the waterfall and avoid the crowds like other months.

Temperature- Around 27°C at daylights to 5°C

September to October

This is also one of the perfect seasons for the EBC Trek. This season is the peak of tourists due to the favorable weather. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets itself. The temperature goes up to 20 degrees in the daytime and falls down to 5 degrees during the nighttime. This season is when trekkers enjoy trekking the most, with a clear sky, and an amazing view of the mountains. It is highly recommended, as it’s the best time for the Everest Two High Passes Trek, usually from mid-September to end. The main festival of Nepal: Dashain and Tihar also attracts tourists in this season.

Temperature- Temperature goes up to 20 degrees in the daytime and falls down to 5 degrees

November to December

As winter slowly begins, snowfalls begin in the Himalayas region and it eventually gets tough to trek. Nights get much colder. November is the busy season people all over the world come at these months, as it’s the clearest month with sparkling days and amazing views of humongous mountains. The daytime temperatures are very stable and constant and due to this, the view of the clear blue sky and the mountain is phenomenal. From December, the temperature starts to get cold and begins to snow like diamonds in the sky.

The weather in the Himalayas is so unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly from day to night.


Altitude sickness is commonly faced by many trekkers who try to rush their way to the base camp. It is not a matter of ignorance and requires immediate treatment in such cases. To avoid such, in this trek, we will be acclimatizing in two places: Namche Bazaar and Gokyo. This trek is difficult as compared to the Everest Base Camp 12 or 14 days’ trek. At Namche Bazaar, trekkers can explore the famous Sherpa town and adjust to the thin air. We will also be having second-day acclimatization at Gokyo where we will We hike to Gokyo Ri(5,430m) to see the excellent panoramic view along with an astonishing glimpse of Mount Everest. The scenery is unquestionably stunning. We will witness the Himalayas along with beautiful turquoise lakes and glaciers, and they have extensive first aid training as well. Your health and safety are important to us, and we guarantee that it will be our very first priority. In case you have been rigorously affected, the only remedy would be to descend immediately. Also, your group leader has the definitive response to determine whether you can proceed with the trek based on your health conditions.

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health <./h3>

As challenging as it is, the Everest Two High Passes Trek is an equally rewarding trek. On average, the walk per day will be around 5 to 7 hours, depending on the destination and the number of breaks we take. The trail is mostly uphill or steep descents, with rocky and stone-paved paths. It is not impossible to go to these treks for a regular person, but remaining fit and exercising well will make the trek more comfortable and enjoyable. Former trek experience or regular exercise and doing yoga is an advantage for the trekker. Besides, if you love trekking, you can make it happen anyways and conquer your dreams.

This trek, however, is not recommended for individuals with sensitive medical conditions like heart or lung disease. Since the majority of the trek involves moderate to strenuous climbing, it may prove to be dangerous for the health of such people. We recommend you consult with your doctor before attempting to attain this trek. Also, we make sure to provide you with all the necessary medical kit supplies you may need in the trek.

A typical day on the Everest High Passes Trek

Every day will be compensated with a different adventure of trekking, climbing experiencing the scenery, taking photos, and traveling the local villages. During the expedition, experienced friendly and qualified expert Sherpa will share information and historical facts about the places as they accompany us throughout the trek. The porters who carry our luggage will also accompany us. However, we will be carrying our own small backpack with the necessary items.

The day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee. After packing our bags and gorging on a wholesome breakfast, we set off on the day's walk around 7 AM to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the days walk. After trekking for three to four hours, we will have lunch around midday on the route to the next destination, and we continue after about an hour of rest.

The afternoon walk is generally shorter: about two to three hours. Once we reach our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, we snack on the extra dietary food. We will also have free time to explore nearby places.

Dinner is served around 6 PM to 7 PM. Before going to bed, we will spend some quality time in friendly conversations and discuss the experience of that day. The expedition leader/guide will brief us about the next day’s plan. After this briefing, we enjoy onboard games like monopoly, cards, and watch available mountaineering documentaries. Most of the foreigners indulge in light and fun learning of the Nepalese language from our crew or read books before heading off to bed for a well-deserved sleep.

All the members of trekking must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate to Discovery World Trekking. The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation inclusive of helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at high altitudes (up to 6000m) for trekking members.

We can recommend insurance companies to help you but we don’t directly get involved in the sale of an insurance policy. Members can be refused to be included in the trekking based on insufficient, improper, or absence of travel insurance policy.

Trekking members are kindly requested to send their detailed insurance information once they book for trekking. In case of emergency situations, we will be using the insurance policy and informational documents you sent us. This will help in arranging quick and effective rescue operations, transfer for emergency medical help.

Before you buy travel insurance (Don't just believe them what they say on their website) make sure you call them and recheck if they have Heli-rescue and evacuation up to 6000m according to your trekking height.

Tourist Visa Nepal

All foreigners except Indians require a visa to enter Nepal. Visa is available on arrival at the Tribhuvan International airport. Visa can be extended at the central immigration office www.immigratiion.gov.np The visa application will require at least a passport of 6 months’ validity, and a passport size photo. The current cost of the visa fee is US $50 for 30 days, which have to be paid in cash on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport. Citizens of China and the SAARC countries will receive a free visa. There are certain countries (Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan) that may not receive the visa on arrival and so you will have to contact your local Nepalese embassy.

Currency Exchange in Nepal USD to NPR

Nepali Rupees (NPR) is the local currency.

(1 USD = ~ Rs 118 NPR).

We can exchange most of the foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Small amounts of cash can also be exchanged at the hotel.

The ongoing rate of exchange is visibly displayed. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export, and use of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupee note in Nepal. You should ensure that you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may also be fined.

Despite having the security advantage of traveler's cheques, we prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and a high rate of commission at the banks. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu and Thamel itself. There are quite a several ATMs that are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee if you are using your foreign card.

If you use the money exchange facility at banks and financial institutions the service fee charge imposed is about 4% or more depending upon the bank.
During the trek, there are no banks and money exchange services so you should exchange your money in Kathmandu only, depending on how much personal expense you require as in the Himalayan region people only accept Nepalese Currency

Most of the established banks in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn, or faded. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes

Everest High Passes Trek Company Reviews

Discovery World Trekking

Everest High Passes

5 - Excellent

I found the team at Discovery through reviews on TA so it’s only right that I add to the positive feedback that’s already on here.We signed up for the Everest 3 Passes trek. Paul helped to personalise the itinerary and was both incredibly helpful and responsive – which was appreciated given we must have fired a hundred questions to him in the build up to the trip.The experience itself was amazing – a challenge, but spectacular and incredibly rewarding. We owe a big thanks as well to our wonderful guide Sandeep, who’s knowledge and experience was invaluable (particularly when navigating tricky glacier passes!). We always felt like we were in safe hands and across the course of the 17 days Sandeep became a friend as well as a guide.One other thing I would highlight with Discovery is the ethics of the company. Up in the mountains you see companies that have a poor treatment of their staff – for example; porters carrying numerous heavy bags across tough terrain in order to maximise profits. No such concerns with Discovery and Paul genuinely cares for the welfare and happiness of his team.If you are planning a trek in Nepal then we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Discovery World Trekking.

Amazing Everest High Two Passes Trek

5 - Excellent

My husband and I had an amazing trek with Discovery World Trekking on the Everest High Two Passes Trek. Before we left Nepal, the owner Paul was very responsive to each and every one one my questions. Paul checked in with our guide several times during the trek to make sure that everything was going well.Our guide Saroz Gurung and porter Jagat Rai were absolutely amazing. I highly recommend them both. They kept us comfortable and safe along the trek. Saroz was extremely knowledgable about the trek and the Everest region. He always checked in with us to make sure we were feeling well and allowed us to pace the trek according to our abilities. Both Saroz and Jagat always had smiles on their faces and they were both a joy to be around.We saw many porters on the trail who were not treated well by their respective trekking companies, so please make sure you pick a company like Discovery World Trekking. Discovery World limits the weight to 9 kg per person or 18 kg per porter. They ensure that the guide and porter have insurance, meals and lodging.If you are trying to decide which hike to do in the Everest/Khumbu region, I highly recommend the Everest High Two Passes Trek. You get amazing views of Everest from both the Renjola Pass and the top of Gokyo Ri. Our guide, Saroz said that they are his 2 favorite views of Everest and know they are mine too :-) Compared to the standard Everest Base Camp trek, which is just out and back, this trek is a loop with only 1 day of repeat trail on the way back.


5 - Excellent

We arrived as a group of 4 and began with a small missed flight! however Paul and his team rearranged everything with no worries, this made us know that we had booked with a wonderful company! We had the most fabulous guide, Dol and two amazing porters, Mon and Lukman. Unfortunately two of the group got bad altitude sickness. One was able to walk down however the other required helivac and once again Paul and his team organised everything without any extra stress to us. The whole team at Discovery World Trekking where professional and can not fault the care and organisation. Dol really went above and beyond to ensure all our needs where met and even on those extra cold nights ensured we had extra blankets! He is a true gentleman and would hope to see him again for future trips. I would highly recommend DWT to others. Thank you Paul, Dol, Mon and Lukman without you all I would not have made base camp. A really magical trip and you should all be so proud to be part of a great company.


I have never trekked before. Can I complete Everest 3 / 2 High Passes Trek?

Without a doubt. As long as you are fairly fit, can walk for 5-6 hours a day, and trek/hike a few uphills, you will complete the trek.

How to avoid altitude sickness in Everest High 3 Passes and Everest High 2 Passes Treks?

Like any other Everest Treks, Everest 3 and Everest 2 High Passes Trek are challenging due to high elevation. However, if you perform light exercises for a few weeks before the trek and avoid certain types of food, you will be able to complete these treks.

We advise you to

  • Cut off caffeinated, alcoholic, and smoking items.
  • Drink at least 4 liters of water a day.
  • Trek slow. Don't skip the acclimatization days.
  • Use Diamox (if any symptoms show up).
  • Drink Garlic Soup.

How safe are Everest 3 High Passes and Everest 2 High Passes Trek?

Discovery World Trekking guarantees the safety, security, and satisfaction of all trekkers. Our crew has extensive first aid training, and they carry all necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits. We also use oximeters to monitor the blood oxygen levels of trekkers at high altitudes.

If a trekker falls sick at a high altitude, the trek leader will decide whether to continue the trek or descend. In emergencies, Discovery World Trekking deploys a helicopter to bring you back from the higher elevation.

What if my flight to and from Lukla is canceled or delayed?

We recommend you to allocate extra 2 / 3 days for Everest Base Camp Trek due to unpredictable weather. In rough weather, flights from Lukla to Kathmandu or vice versa get canceled. In such situations, the flight is automatically rescheduled for the next possible day. 

If you have a very tight schedule, you can charter a helicopter to make sure you are on schedule either for the trek or for your flight back home. However, you will have to bear the helicopter cost. But, if the visibility is less than 1,500 meters, it is impossible to operate a helicopter, and Discovery World Trekking will reschedule the flight.

Do I need travel insurance to trek in the Everest Region?

There are chances that you may need a quick helicopter ride back to Kathmandu to avoid health emergencies, so adequate insurance is a must. The insurance has to cover helicopter rescue & medical evacuation expenses at high altitudes.

What about the insurance of guides and porters?

All Discovery World Trekking staff members have insurance coverage, and in addition to salary, we also cover their meals, lodging, transportation, and necessary equipment costs.
