Thoughh classified as trekking peaks, ’Labuche East,6119m,pokalde,5806m, and Island (imja peak),6189m, are moderately technical and offer the best possible introduction to are Himalayan climbing, climbing in one of the most spectacular regions in the world. The Three Peaks in Everest Region also includes Three High Passes, Renjo La, 5435 m, Cho La, 5420 m, and Kongma La 5535 m and five valleys in the Everest Region. This trek is achievable for any highly fit trekker who wants to develop alpine climbing skills amd experience trekking and climbing in the Himalaya of Nepal.
Three Peaks in Everest region expedition begins with a short flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, 2850 m, where the trek begins. Namche Bazaar, known as the Sherpa capital, is the last and largest village before heading west into the remote Bhote Koshi Valley.
Our first objective is Lobuche East, one of the most challenging trekking peaks in the Everest region. The approach trek takes one week from Namche and goes over the Renjo La Pass, 5435 m, descends to the beautiful Gokyo Lakes and ascends Gokyo Ri, 5360m, before heading over the Cho La Pass, 5420 m. By the time we finally get to the Lobuche East High Camp, we have not only seen the extreme beauty of the heart of the Khumbu, but we are also well acclimatized to climb Lobuche East Peak.
We practice glacier and snow climbing with our Sherpa Climbing Guide while our staff establishes a high camp on the mountain. We will ascend the South Ridge to a high snow camp from where we are ideally placed to summit. The commanding views of Everest reward us for our effort. On the same day we descend to Lobuche Village. We trek to nearby Everest Base Camp and Kala Pathar before heading to the Chhukung Valley where our next two objectives await: Pokalde and Island Peak.The climb to the Pokalde summit is relatively straightforward, and since we have learned some mountaineering skills and are well acclimatized, it seems surprisingly easy.
Pokalde Peak Base Camp is below the the Kongma La Pass, 5535 m and Pokalde High Camp. From the High Camp a rocky trail eventually reaches Pokalde Peak from where you will have extraordinary mountain spectacle including Mt Makalu, Ama Dablam, Pumori, and a vast mountain vista of Khumbu region.
We take a day to rest at Island Peak Base Camp before the comparatively tougher climb to the summit of the final peak of the expedition. Island Peak rises like an Island in the middle of the Chhukung Valley.The summit view is said to be the finest of the Everest Region; it includes Nuptse, Lhotse, Lhotse Middle Peak and Lhotse Shar.To the East, are the frozen waves of the Lhotse Shar Glacier, Cho Polu, 6734 m, and the perfect pyramid of Mt.Makalu, 8475 m.
We descend back to Chhukung after the climb. Followed by our trail down to Tengboche, Namche and then Lukla.

Health and Experience Requirements
3 pass 3 peak Labuche,Pokalde,Island Peak climbingc is a difficult trip suitable for passionate adventurers who have ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light day pack. In some days we might even need to walk more hours. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, those in excellent physical condition with above average fitness and some hiking experience can do this trek. Positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination are things that aid to accomplish trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip are good idea to enhance strength and stability.
It is a condition upon trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don’t arrange or sell insurance.
‘During 3 pass 3 peak Labuche,Pokalde,Island Peak climbing itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS.
