Despite being lengthy, the Everest Three High Passes trek in Nepal is regarded as one of the most rewarding. Many experienced trekkers describe it as the most visually stunning and exhilarating adventure.

Nepal Nirvana Trails introduces a unique way to explore the Everest region, offering the convenience of a Jeep ride from Kathmandu to Salleri on the first day with the regular trekking route to the prominent Everest Base Camp, delivering an unparalleled adventure in the heart of the Himalayas.

The trekking will begin from Salleri on day two as we take the rest in Salleri after our drive from Kathmandu. You will also get to know about the hospitality of Salleri and get to interact with the locals. Apart from the mountains and culture of people, we can enjoy magnificent animal movements like Musk Deer, Himalayan Tahrs, and Red Pandas inside the premises of Sagarmatha National Park, listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Everest Base Camp has a great significance on your travel experience and achievements. It is amongst the highest base camps in the world, and it takes a lot of physical and mental endurance as well. Gradually ascending to the Everest Base Camp and back to Lukla is a long and consistent process. Therefore, we want everyone to be mentally prepared for a longer ride and thrill around the Everest Region.

Everest Three High Passes Trek by Road Comfort and Difficulties

As we know, the Everest Base Camp trek requires much resilience and guts to be easily chased or accomplished. It is one of the greatest achievements for the trek enthusiasts. It involves a lot of hard work, consistency, and self-confidence to allure to the Everest Base Camp. That is why the Everest Base Camp trek is never an easy one. However, with Nepal Nirvana Trails we try our best for your trekking experience to be as true and as amusing as possible. 

Scenic Drive from Kathmandu to Salleri is one of the comforts we are going to provide you during the trek. You can either book your vehicle or a shared vehicle to travel to Salleri. Having a private vehicle means you will get comfortable seats and stoppages wherever you want to rest or enjoy the scenery. You will get maximum freedom to enjoy the lovely views around the corner during your drive. 

Experienced Guides are another comfort you are getting served by Nepal Nirvana Trails. We have the most experienced and best guides who have been working in the industry for more than two decades and have provided the best service for hundreds of trekkers around the globe. 

Comfortable Hotels and tea houses will be a key part of comfort during your trekking reign. You have to recover from the tiredness while resting in the tea houses and hotels so you will want comfortable beds and washrooms for cleanliness. Nepal Nirvana Trails assures you the comfortable stoppages to spend a night to recover well for the next day’s exploration. 

Considering the comfortable zones, Nepal Nirvana Trails is fully aware of the fact that difficulties can occur during trekking. We truly are responsible for your concern and would like to share some of the threats that might occur during your trek to the Everest Base Camp.

Terrain and Altitude is the common and inescapable difficulty during the trek to Everest Base Camp. We will have to walk on the rugged, unpaved, and steep ascend and descent. Those types of roads can result in difficulty in walking for inexperienced trekkers. Altitude is another major threat during the trek of Everest Base Camp. Your walk ascends from 2100 meters to 5600 meters altitude in the space of one week or so, that's why we always warn about your health and altitude adaptability. 

Climate Change: Climate in the Himalayan terrain is very unpredictable as it can take an unexpected turn. That can be a downside during the trekking if the climate becomes gloomy and cloudy. No one can beat nature but we can pray for that not to happen in the feasible seasons. 

There can be physical and mental difficulties during the trek so we recommend you take preliminary pieces of training before the trek starts. Hitting the gym, doing short hikes, taking a lot of nutrients, and drinking enough water will help you adapt to the climate and altitude. 

Food and Drinking Water Facilities 

The meal service and stay offered to you during your 20-day trek of Everest Base Camp by road will be better than average. You will be accommodated in a shared twin bedroom and will have to share the bathroom as well. The bedroom will be warm and cozy. You can also put your packages in the room. The food service will be great and healthy. You will be provided with the required nutrients. You can be well recovered by taking the necessary nutrients to walk the terrain. 

At every stoppage, there will be drinking water facilities. You will be provided with complimentary cold water facilities. However, it may cost you a few rupees for the hot water and hot shower facilities as we will be at a higher altitude. Water will be fresh and ready to drink. It doesn't contain any antibiotics.
