Three Passes and maybe more

Hi all,

I’m James, 28 from Australia, pretty unfit after a European summer ;p but hoping to get the fitness back quickly in a few days

I’ve just arrived in Kathmandu and looking to start the 3 passes trek within the next week (21-25th Oct), most likely flying into Lukla and starting from there. Looking to do it independently and tea house trek.

Looking to do some side treks – friends have told me of the possibility of climbing Island Peak (a bit over 6,100m) by organising to tag along with a tour group from Chhukung. Also heard the views from Pumori base camp are definitely worth it

If anybody is wanting to do a similar trek starting around the same time please let me know
