```Your expression is not written in Mathematica. I assume the left hand side
of your equation is meant to be

lhs=Exp[-x]/((x^2 + 1) (y^2 + 2) (z^2 + 1)) +
Exp[-2 y]/((x^2 + 2) (y^2 + 2) (z^2 + 1)) +
Exp[-3 z]/((x^2 + 1) (y^2 + 2) (z^2 + 3))

Assuming x,y,z are all real-valued, then each of the 3 terms in this
expression is positive, so lhs can never be zero, so there is no contour
surface lhs==0 for you to plot. An exception is when x,y,z all tend to
+Infinity which makes lhs-->0.
