Three Passes Trek

Hi fellow travelers,

I just arrived in Kathmandu and am looking for a few other trekking partners for the Three Passes Trek.

I’m quite flexible with dates and staying in Thamel until I have everything organized.

Currently, I’m considering for budgetary reasons to take a Jeep from Kathmandu to Salleri and then trek from Salleri to Namche: 4 days. (However I am open to flying into Lukla as well)

Day 1: Salleri to Nunthala (1,823 m)
Day 2: Nunthala (1,823 m) to Kari La (2,880 m)
Day 3: Kari La (2,880 m) to Phakding (2,650 m)
Day 4: Phadking (2,650 m) to Namche (3,440 m)
Day 5: Acclimatization Day, Namche (3,440 m)
Day 6: Acclimatization Day, Namche (3,440 m)
Day 7: Namche (3,440 m) to Tengboche (3,867 m)
Day 8: Tengbouche (3,867 m) to Dingboche (4,260 m)
Day 9: Dingboche (4,260 m) to Chukhung (4,730 m)
Day 10: Acclimatization Day, Chukhung (4,730 m)
Day 11: Chukung (4,730 m) – Pass #1 Kong Ma La (5,535 m) – Lobouche (4,950 m)
Day 12: Lobouche (4,950 m) to Gorak Shep (5,160 m)
Day 13: Everest Base Camp (5,364 m), Acclimatization Day & Gorak Shep (5,160 m)

Day 15: Dzongla (4,830 m) – Pass #2 Cho La (5,420 m) – Gokyo (4,750 m)
Day 16: Gokyo (4,750 m)
Day 17: Gokyo (4,750 m)
Day 18: Gokyo (4,750 m) – Pass #3 Renjo La (5,360 m) – Lumbde (4,300 m)
