  1. Dear Viv,
    I am looking at a similar itinerary in the same date range. Please do let me know if your plan is firm


  2. Hi Sriram, my dates are fixed and I have already booked my flight tickets!

  3. Hello Viv,
    I am also planning the 3 passes trek in December. I am landing on 6th in KTM, and thought I would take the bus/jeep to salleri on 7th, and I think that would make me about 1 day behind you in Namche. I would be interested to join you or at least coordinate so that we could link up for the passes or any other parts.
