I am planning to make the Three Passes Trek starting in the middle of October. Therefore I have reached out to several agencies. Regarding one question the replies differ a lot.
I would like to make this tour alonne, so only a guide and myself. The majority of the agencies are saying, that in villages like Dzongla, Lobuche, Goyko, Gorak Shep and Dingpoche it could be very difficult to find
a) a single room at all and then have to share a room with one up tp six people
b) maybe also sometimes to find a room at all, so that I would have to sleep either in the dining room or would have to go further to another villages
But two agencies are quite optimistic to provide a single room, because of their connections and they would book the rooms prior the trek. Only in Dzongla this couldn’t guaranteed for sure.
1) So I am a little bit irritated now; who is right and what would you say in general and specifically to a) and b)?
2) If I start the trek around the 15th of October it the temperatures are similar compared to April, but the views and weather conditions are more stable at all right?
I researched a lot on different weather platforms. Although the temperatures becoming more and more colder in October, they are very similar (until around first week of November) compared to April.
3) Would you prefer making the 2nd acclimation day in either Dingboche or Chukung? I would prefer Chukung because I would be able making both Chukung Ri and Imja Lake, but of course a good acclimation is the most important aspect for me.
Many thanks and best regards
