IN COLLABORATION WITH

The Three Passes trek of Everest is an excellent alternative to the classic Base Camp trek for experienced hikers. The path develops in a more complete way, touching many spectacular points of interest such as the Gokyo lakes and the Italian pyramid, without, of course, renouncing the Base Camp itself. We will take three steps over 5,000 meters admiring four eight-thousand-meter peaks (Cho Oyu, Everest, Lhotse, Makalu); despite the altitude we will never face climbing difficulties along our path. We will be accompanied by an experienced local guide and our heaviest luggage will be carried by porters and yaks. Accommodations for the night are in simple double room lodges. Photography is a plus in this journey, which is already unique in itself: my goal is to let participants experience a useful and entertaining photographic experience, whatever the level of preparation and the equipment possessed, which is also just a smartphone! With everyone there will be time to tackle photographic themes and techniques according to one's abilities.
