Three Passes Trek


last year I did the Tsum Walley-Manaslu-ACT-ABC trek, and now I’d plan to do the Three Passes, departing in the middle of oct, after the rainy season is over. Plan to start from Salleri/Phalphu (19th Nov) , and do all the possibile interesting places during the trek (climbing Chukung Ri, Nangkartshang peak, Everest Base Camp, Khala Pattar, Gokyo Ri+ 6th lake, Sunder peak, and some sidewalks… see as much from the Everest Region as possibile) Obviously I like to do the trek independently (not with agencies, packages.), staying in teahouses on the way. After walk out to Salleri.
I am looking for some partners for the trek, as trekking in a group is more fun. If someone interested, then drop me a message:)

  1. Hi Tamas I’m arriving in Kathmandu on 2nd October for 2 months. I’m planning on walking from Shivalaya to Lukla and then the Three Passes including EBC. I’m looking for partners to enjoy this experience.
    I trekked to ABC 20 years ago and have always wanted to get back to the Himalayas.
    Let me know your thoughts.


    • Hi Reece I am planning to go nepal but once the trip is confirmed. i haven’t decided to which trek should i do. I am interested to do manasalu circuit but also interested on doing everest. i haven’t found any partners yet so i havent confirmed my tickets. if i can join with you then let me know.

  2. Hi Tamas
    Sounds very exciting ! I’ve got a month and half (october till mid-November) and I want to do the Three Passes and maybe and other shorter trek.
    How long do you plan on the Three Passes trek with all those side trip ?


    • Hi, I sent you a pm.

  3. Hi Tamas,
    The Three Pass trek is very interesting idea. I am going to be in Nepal from October 7th (couple of months, as I’m taking career break). I would be interested in joining for this trek. Independent trek would be great idea. How long do you plan the trek? And what will be your desired starting date? Thanks 🙂

    I am Indian, live in Italy. I recently finished my phd and opted to go into mountains. I have never trekked in Nepal before, but I have trekked a bit around in Europe and in arctic.


  4. Hi,
    Your plans of doing the three passes trek independently and including enought time for side trips has evoked my interest for joining! I see that other travelers have shown interest too. Has already a small group formed?

    I arrived in Nepal a few days ago. Tomorrow, I head to Arughat for the Manaslu/Tsum Vally/Annapurna trek and expect to arrive in Jomsom around october 16. Therefore, starting in Salleri on October 19 is ambitious for my time schedule, but feasible. If there was the option of shifting the trek by a few days, this would also be great for me. I have to be back in Kathmandu latest on November 28.

    Feel free to contact me.

  5. Hi Tamas

    I plan to do 3 passes trek (19 days) from 23 Oct. I have been trekking for the past 4 years and am fairly fit for this one. I have couple of questions – do I necessarily need a guide and how early do I need to book Kathmandu to Lukla flight, i.e. can it be booked a day in advance. If the answers to both the questions is No and you plan to delay your start by 4 days then we can trek together.
