Tour Overview

The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek with the Three Passes is a challenging and exhilarating adventure that takes you through some of the most breathtaking landscapes in the world. The journey begins in Lukla, Nepal, where you'll fly into the Tenzing-Hillary Airport, famously known as one of the most dangerous airports in the world. From there, you'll trek through picturesque Sherpa villages, lush forests, and across high mountain passes, immersing yourself in the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The highlight of the EBC trek with the Three Passes is, of course, the Everest Base Camp itself.
