3 Passes Trek Nepal

Hi there, I’m hoping to do the 3-passes trek without a guide or porter, which is how I’ve always hiked in the past. I’ll be flying into Kathmandu on April 6th, and hopefully starting out from Lukla on the 9th or 10th. I’ve done some extensive hiking in the past, but have only been at 4000m elevation, so will be going at a moderate pace to give myself acclimatization time. I’m pretty relaxed and open to any ideas or different plans, I’m not really pressed for time, though I am trying to do this rather cheaply. A prospective itinerary looks like

1: Lukla to Namche Bazaar
2. Rest day (side hikes?
3. Namche to Tengboche
4. Rest day
5. to Dingboche
6. to Chhukung
7. Rest day
8. to Lobuche (via Kongmala Pass)
9. to Gorak Shep and basecamp and back to Gorak Shep
10. to Lobuche
11. to Dzonglha
12. to Gokyo (via Chola Pass)
13. Rest day (Gokyo Lakes)
14. Rest day
15. to Lungden/Marulung
16. to Thame
17. to Namche
18. to Lukla

  1. Eric, I can be in Lukla pm 12th (wrapping up ABC trek on 11th) will that work for you? I have done EBC already but not the passes or kalapathar

    • Hey iqbal, that might work, I’m trying to figure out plans with a couple other people right now let me get back to you on it. You can email me at e.c.chaudhary@gmail.com
