Everest Three Pass Trek Including Base Camp with a nice guy form the U.S.

Hi, my name is Brad. I am 35 years old and an overall nice guy who loves the outdoors. I currently live in Denver, Colorado in the U.S. I am seeking a trekking partner or two for a trip to Nepal in late October through mid-November (detailed itinerary below). I’ve been inspired by several videos I’ve watched about this trip, and I’ve done a LOT of research on trekking agencies, guides, porters, culture – you name it. I’ve read that many people feel a guide and porter is not necessary on the Everest Three Pass Trek, but due to the very high altitude of this trip, I want both a guide and porter for safety reasons. I have found a company I am interested in using, and the trip will be about $1,500, which includes flights within Nepal all food, and accommodations in teahouses each night, among many other things.

I love the outdoors – I hike a lot here in Colorado. I love the mountains, photography, skiing, and animals. I am trying to get into meditation and am interested in learning a lot about other cultures and religions that practice it. As such, I think this trip to Nepal could potentially be an incredibly challenging yet self-reflecting journey.

I am hoping to share this potentially life-changing experience with others. Here is my detailed itinerary below, and my dates are not very flexible at this time as I will be securing plane tickets soon (found a great deal). However, the itinerary is designed to accommodate 15 business days (3 weeks) from a typical Monday-Friday corporate job. So if you can get 3 weeks off, this trip can totally work.

Please let me know if you might be interested in trekking with me!
