Everest Base Camp – 3 High Passes

Hello Folks
I am looking to complete the 3 high passes circuit over 23 days using the below itinerary and have booked a porter cum guide from Lukla. Please ping if you are okay with following the same broad itinerary. I am a keen photographer – would be ideal if potential trek partners don’t mind early starts for catching the best light.

Day 18 – the trip to Sumnag Cave is a function of
a) Tea Houses being open at Arya
b) Someone at Arya being able to indicate the route to Sumnag Cave (Sumnag Cave comes up in the Lonely Planet Guide – but information is scanty on the web)

Costs : Whatever the tea houses end up costing. Prevailing wisdom appears to indicate that for most people, the tea houses end up costing between USD 20 to 30 per day.
