Three Passes Trek
I am planning to do the Three Passes Trek starting in Lukla around the 21st of November.
I am going to be in Kathmandu from the 19th of November if you want to meet before for a beer or anything.
I would like to carry my own bags and do it independently, maybe hire a guide only for crossing 3 passes(depends on weather) and do all trek cheaply(staying in teahouses). I would like to ascend slowly because of altitude sickness(especially after Namche Bazaar – more acclimatization days). I am leaving Kathmandu on the 14th of December so i have a lot of time for the trek. I have never hiked in Nepal, but i have done some hiking in Europe and New Zealand. I would like to do some side trips as well.
I am looking for some partners so send me a message or post below if you are interested in joining for a bit or the whole trek.
