Three Passes Trek from Jiri

Hi all,

I am planning to depart from Jiri approximately March 15, so will be in Lukla March 21 is anyone wants to meet there.

My plan is to do the Three Passes Trek. I’ve not done any multi-day trekking trips previously, however I am quite young and fit. If I do not feel up for it, obviously, I can remove any of the three passes from the itinerary, however, I do not plan on doing so.

Let me know if you are planning the same trip in the same time frame, or if you would like to join me on the trip.

  1. Hi khaled, have you already booked your flight to nepal? Because I will arrived on the 29 th February at katmandou. Plan to do jiri, lukla, EBC and gokyo. I thought we could do jiri lukla together if our planning match?.. My email: marine.perrin.1@gmail btw I am French, 29 years old. Keep in touch. Cheers

  2. Hi Khaled,

    I’ll arrive to Kathmandu on 14 March. My plan is to start classic EBC trek (Jiri – Namche) to acclimatize and than continue Three passes trek (depends on weather/physical condition). Take care.


    • Hello Lukas, I am planning exactly the same. I am already in Kathmandu. Are your plans still valid? Did you manage to find partners?

    • Hello Daniel,

      it sounds great. Yes, my plan is still valid. I’ll arrive on Monday evening and try to get my TIMS/SNP permit/bus ticket on Tuesday. We can meet and agree on next steps on Tuesday if you will be still in Kathmandu ? I spoke with David and Jud. They are doing three passes trek too, but they are flying to Lukla and starting from there.

  3. Hello Khaled! How is your planning? Did you manage to find partners?
