Three Passes Trek

Plan to do the three passes trek in Mar-19 – starting from Jiri doing the Three Passes anti-clock-wise and ending at Salleri.

Brief Plan: Jiri to Nache – Kongma La – EBC – Cho La – Gokyo – Renjo La to Namche and beyond and out via Salleri/Phaplu

The idea is not to run around but to do a lot of side trips as well and have an un-rushed and immersive experience, which i think should take around 25-27 days. I have 30 days max to complete the trip.

Intend to do it unguided but am open to trek with a guide cum porter as well as long as it does not compromise on my freedom.

Detailed itinerary below, but thats more of a guiding principle rather than a calendar. The plan is to start either on 2nd or 9th Mar-19 but preferably on 3rd March …
