Impossible Puzzle to solve for Humans

Enjoy the beauty of chess!

I remember my coach gave this puzzle to me back in 2013. It’s a puzzle that won’t be possible to solve with the engine as you have to find and set up the correct position. Let’s go


You have to set up a position where white has 3 pawns and both players have a king. (Total 5 pieces - 3 pawns and 2 kings) and still, the position is a forced draw.

Following are some conditions.

1- You cannot set doubled or tripled pawns (For e.g. e2 and e3)
2- The position is white to play and white will try to win
3- Position is forced to draw after accurate play from both sides.

I recommend you to not check the answer for a few days and try to solve the puzzle.
