The Sagarmatha 3 Passes Trek is one of the most impressive treks that can be done in Nepal, in a circular route through the Solu-Khumbu, literally at the foot of the highest mountains in the world, surrounded by very high peaks covered with perpetual snow and crossing three passes over 5000 meters high. A trek that every mountaineer should do once in life.

Kongma-La (5535m), Cho-La (5368m), Renjo-La (5360m) are three mythical names that you will keep in your memory, but you will still have to add to them by climbing Chukung-Ri (5550m), Kala Patthar (5550m), and the Gokyo-Ri (5357m) from where you will be able to panoramas that are difficult to surpass in other places.
The entire northern part of the Solu-Khumbu Valley is included in the Sagarmatha National Park, and is known for hosting the summit of Everest, whose Nepali name is Sagarmatha, something like “the head of the sky-heaven”. We could say that it has four legs, Thame, Gokyo, Everest and Chukhung (although it is not exactly like that) and this trek joins the valleys by crossing the passes between them, by paths much less frequented than the classic Everest Base Camp, although it shares a small part, and with the advantage of enjoying accommodation in “lodges”, which allows a good rest after each stage.
Even though it passes around 5500m high, this trek does not present great technical difficulties, that is to say, it does not normally imply the use of ropes or other technical material and does not require any section of climbing or grimacing, although there are sections with steep slopes. In this sense, any person with mountain experience and a good physical condition can do it, but always taking into account that we are in the high mountains, very high indeed, and the weather conditions can change the situation of the itinerary quickly, and you have to be prepared for that. It is a demanding trek on a physical level and it takes two and a half weeks to cover the mountains at a not insignificant altitude, so apart from a good physical condition it is also necessary to have good acclimatization along the whole ascent, that is why we have chosen to do it from east to west to climb more gradually.
Do not hesitate, this is a five-star trek, where you will enjoy the proximity of very high emblematic peaks within reach, and you will have the real feeling of being on the roof of the world.
