Three Passes Trek

I have a three week period available for trekking or mountaineering in Nepal. I plan to fly into Katmandu on May 1 and fly out on May 21. If plans do not change, I will hike the 3 passes trek. I am open to other treks or mountaineering objectives.

I have previously hiked the Annapurna circuit + base camp trek solo (during the 2014 snowstorm disaster!). I have worldwide expedition, mountaineering, and climbing experience. I also have wilderness first responder training.

If you are interested in joining, please send me some information about your relevant skills, experience, and objectives.

  1. Dear Karl,

    I’ll be arriving in Kathmandu the 19 th of April, and I plan to take a bus to Jiri or Shivala the 20th or the 21st.

    If you plan to fly to Lukla, we might meet in Namche, if you feel like.

    I already booked my flight back the 16th of May from Kathmandu.

    It will be my first time in Nepal, but I have mountaineering experience, and long trek experience and I’m quite fit.

    Let me know.

    • Matteo,

      I have had to move my trip back by a few days (now expecting to. Arrive on May 1 and leave on May 21, so the timing may not work out with your schedule.

  3. Hi Karl I will be starting tomorrow as well. Are you flying to Lukla tomorrow? I’m not sure I will go super fast all the time, I have trekking and altitude experience but not mountaineering or climbing like you. I would like to take a few extra days so as to be safe with acclimitisation and fatigue. Let me know your thoughts. I’m 34 and from new Zealand. Cheers 🙂
