Three sorts of wonderful. Fly into a high altitude airstrip and then travel quick, fast, and self-supported through three passes near the Everest region. Cross massive valley systems using three passes.

The high point of this trip is Renjo Pass (5,420m/17,782ft). You can opt for a non-technical climb of Gokyo Ri (5,357m/17,575ft). And yes, you can walk to Everest Base Camp if the spirit moves you. Or climb Kala Patar (5550m/18,208ft) for stunning 360 degree panoramas.

We will travel through beautiful Himalayan landscapes walking on the lap of the highest mountain in the world. We will move quick, light, and self-supported while following lesser used three passes trail compared to the trail to EBC. This event will also follow a unique format combining cultural running, small group fast packing, and self-supported (no porters or mules). It is the perfect adventure if you are looking for a gnarly high altitude mountain running in Nepal and will prepare you for a stage race and further adventures in the Himalaya.

    Do you know if this year’s trail is taking place? I sent 2 emails from their website but did not receive any answers?
    We would like to do this trail this year. We are 2. Who can we pass to organize this type of trip? We would like to do this trick but be free and be able to do it fast. Without being accompanied by a guide and without having to move with heavy bags.
    Thank you
