Three Passes Trek

Hey Everyone

My name is Marco, I’m 26 years old and from Switzerland. I’m a solo traveler but some things are better enjoyed with friends 🙂
I really want to do the three passes trek but I haven’t decided whether to hire a guide or not.
Currently, I’m in Pokhara waiting for my Upper Mustang trek to start. I’ll be back in Pokhara on November 8th.
So pretty much any starting date between November 12th and November 20th works for me.

Cheers, Marco

  1. Hi Marco,
    I am planning doing th three passes trek from the 16th November. I’m not really wanting to hire a guide but am willing to discuss this. Hope the Annapurna was good, peace

  2. Hi Marco,

    Sorry I came to this late. I am doing the three passes. I am flying into KTM on the 10th Nov (Sat) and have a flight booked to Lukla on the 13th Nov (Tues).

    I am a 50-something Australian guy traveling alone, and like you are undecided on getting a guide. I have some hiking and altitude experience and am pretty fit [so don’t let the my age worry you ;)]. It would be good to chat.

    thanks, Hugh

  3. Hey Marco

    I am also interested in doing the three passes trek. I just arrived in Kathmandu and would be keen to leave within the next few days.

    Would be keen to tag along if you haven’t left yet.


  4. Hey everyone,

    Sorry for the very late response.
    I’ll fly to lukla this morning and walk to Phakding.
    I ended up hiring a guide because some people I met told me that it would be better for some parts. However, you’re all very welcome to tag along, should meet somewhere along the way.
