The trek through Nepal’s ‘Three Passes’ takes in some of the most exciting and picturesque scenery in the Himalaya. The landscape is varied and spectacular; the lodgings and tracks range from the time-worn paths of the Khumbu, to the isolated and less frequented Renjo Pass region.
Sometimes strenuous trekking is continuously rewarded with dramatic Himalayan scenes, including four of the world's eight highest peaks; Cho Oyu (8,201m), Makalu (8,463m), Lhotse (8,516 m) and Everest (8,850m). Time spent admiring breathtaking mountain vistas are complemented by visits to Sherpa villages, homes and monasteries offering you an insight into the quiet but, culturally vibrant Sherpa way of life.
This trek is also unique in that we have the privilege of visiting Everest Base Camp (during the Adventure Consultants Everest Expedition for the pre-monsoon trek), giving an appreciation of the inner workings of expedition life.

Read the dispatches (diary/blog and photos) from our recent Three Passes Nepal treks:
I am back home after the trip of a lifetime. We had an amazing time. I have attached the How did we do trek form. I want to thank you and Mark particularly for being involved in my trip as much as possible and the whole experience communicating and travelling with AC was just so easy and worry free. You took care of everything for me here and Mark did the same in Nepal. He went out of his way to make sure he got all of us from one place to another safely and happily. When we got back to Nepal he organised to take us out in rickshaws to the Garden of Dreams, gave each of us a card and poster to remember our trip. I am so glad I chose AC, the entire company lived up to and exceeded my expectations. It was an incredibly well organised trek. Amanda, Three Passes Trek team member, May 2008.
