Three Passes Trek

Hi, I am planning to do the Three Passes Trek. Timewise I would like to get started mid of March 2019 (10/11th), and I have to fly back to Germany at April, 5th latest.
I am a laid back person, love to laugh, hike, and travel. I am not in a hurry to complete the trek in a world record time. So far, I have done some hikes in Ladakh, near Melbourne and Sydney, in several national parks in the US (just reurned from the Rocky Mountains).
I would be interested in likeminded travelers, who enjoy the scenery, but like to talk once in a while, maybe play some cards, read….

possible route
01/02 Kathmandu
03 Kathmandu Lukla
04 Phakding – Namche Bazaar
05 Namche Bazaar; Khumjung (3.780m). Namche Bazaar.
06 Namche Bazaar – Laudo Gompa – Thamo – Thame (3.820m)
07 Thame – Marlung (4.135m)
08 Marlung – Lundgen (4.500m)
09 Lundgen – Renjo La (5.340m) – Gokyo (4.750m)
