Kongma la is the highest pass of Everest Three Passes Trek being at an altitude of 5528m. It gives the unbelievable panoramic view of the mountains.

The view from the three passes was prodigious. The view of many mountains and the glacial lakes were great. The overall hospitality of Nepal trek adventures was unbelievable. I would highly recommend the NTA team for the Everest three passes trek. The trek was adventurous and beautiful and the team was also friendly and helpful. Due to these reasons, I had the greatest experience of my life. The trek was difficult at times but due to NTA team all the difficulties were passed and we were finally able to complete the trek.
After I decided to go for trekking in the Everest region, I began to search the best trekking in Everest and heard about the three passes trek. The three passes, giving different experiences in different height, gives a lot more exploration than any other treks. Yeah, it’s a bit challenging but trust me, the support of NTA makes it a lot easier. Very enthusiastic and enlightening guide and very good agency. I highly appreciate their unity and hospitality. Hope to go for more tours in Nepal with NTA again.

I could not believe the management of NTA team. Everything was so managed and professional that we did not have to face any problem. Passing through the three passes were three different experiences and all of them were amazing. There were times I felt so difficult and almost gave up but due to the support and encouragement of the guide, I could accomplish the three passes trek. The view was just amazing. The tough path and beautiful view energized and convinced for further steps during the trek. Next time if I decide to go anywhere in Nepal, I will surely contact NTA again.

I visited more than 5 trekking agency before contacting Nepal Trek Adventures. Some were satisfying too but there is definitely something different in NTA that attracted me. The way of providing information making everything clear and offering reasonable prices already attracted me but there were more good things, the guide, they really provide the enthusiastic and well-experienced guide, bring friendly and informative as well. I don’t know about other treks but for three passes trek, NTA team is the best.
Thank you is just a small word in front of the warm services you provided us. We were in a great dilemma before coming to Nepal about the difficulties we would have to face during the trek in Nepal. But the trek went so well. We did not expect such smooth trek and such friendly environment. But Nepal trek adventure made it all possible for us, giving a lifetime memorable trek. We enjoyed a lot during the Everest three passes trek due to the team provided by NTA. The team created a secure and friendly environment and took care of us in each step of the trek. Hope to see you again NTA.
It was a pleasure to go on Everest three passes trek with Binod and team. From the beginning of the trek, they took care of us in every way possible. Really had a great visit to Everest due to Nepal trek adventure. The trekking was hard at times, but the NTA team never let us feel so. They made sure everything we wanted was nicely fulfilled, providing us the best services possible. Thank you Binod and team for organizing such a beautiful trek in a short notice that too in our budget.
I was referred to Binod, Amrit, and the team by a friend who has worked with them before. You can't go wrong with this team - and are a sure bet in Kathmandu's competitive and somewhat sketchy environment. They were so friendly, so kind, and so knowledgeable about their country. I will remember my Everest adventure forever, and I continue to stay in touch. A beautiful experience.
Binod and the crew from NTA will help organize every detail of your trip based on what you want to see, budget and level of trekking ability. They can sort out accommodations, trekking permits, even food. The most important thing is that the NTA staff is personable and will make sure that your trek is safe and your needs are met. I Recommended to a few friends for Everest Three Passes and they have not been disappointed.
My name is Adam Miller and have just returned from Lukla after the most amazing trek to Lukla Chola Pass and Everest Base Camp. The area is more beautiful than you imagine!!! My guide was Ang Chhangbi Sherpa who was so knowledgeable of the area having incredible experience throughout the region. He was patient with me importantly it was tough which was often in the thin area above 4000m he was also incredibly authentic in the lodges helping to collect order for food , arranging extra blankets on the cold night if I wanted them Brilliant guide brilliant company and excellent trekking experience time to plan my return with Nepal Trek Adventures.
We had a very nice trip to Everest Three Passes with Dhana and purnam beautiful weather and lovely people we find up there: Dhana and Purnam were caring about us so well all the way and we are very thankful to them. Highly Recommended!!!
I joined Chris for the EBC and 3 passes Binod supplied a guide who was happy to go anywhere we wanted and when we wanted for a cheap price.

The nights of the trek would be spent in the local teahouses. The accommodations will be in sharing basis with any one or two other trekkers. The arrangement could be done for the single person in a room as per request but it would charge extra $325 US. However, the arrangement is not possible in every place of this region.
The meals would be served in local teahouses available during the trek according to their menu. Dinner will be served in the tea house or lodge where we would spend the night and breakfast would be served in the tea house or lodge where we had spent the night before.
