Three Passes Trek

I am interested in either joining another group or having people join me on this awesome experience. I am very flexible on dates, just want to be home in the US by Nov 24 however ideally I would be starting the trek in early October. As I have read Oct / Nov is the best time for this particular Trek. I am also intending to add a trip to Everest Base Camp during this trek however believe its possible to do within the stated time frame indicated. This will be my first international Trek however am well experienced with long hikes in the US having completed many multi-month hikes.

On a personal note, I am happily married, try to maintain a positive attitude, love to laugh everyday and probably a bit older than many who would take this adventure at 58 however am in good shape and enjoy the outdoors. Thank you for giving consideration to joining me on this adventure.

    • Hi Vivek:
      Thank you for the invitation and your trek looks inviting and I really like the international group you have pulled together. However I already have plans to finish a long distance trek over the June through August time frame and therefore unfortunately cannot join your team.

      All The Very Best to you and the group, I am sure it will be AMAZING!

  2. Thanks Kirk for compliment, I am just Intend to make it more memorable and amazing ,
    Best of luck you too for your upcoming trek

  3. Maybe I will join you If your trek begin in 1st week of November, i have plan for Nepal in November , let me know if it is.

    • Hi Vivek;
      I apologize for the late reply, I didn’t see the e-mail come through. I am planning to start, which is to be in Kathmandu around October 3.

  4. Hi Kirk,
    I am very interested in joining you to Three passes trek in this Oct/Nov. My manager gave me three week holiday.
    I am in good shape. I hike every weekend. I did ABC in 2016 and AC in 2017. I did these treks in “standard time”. However, I am 49 year old and walk slower than younger trekkers. I met many young trekkers who walk twice faster than standard time at ABC and AC. I think walking with a 58 years person is more comfortable for me.
    Please let me know if you are interested in going to trek together.
    In addition, I speak very poor English. If you want to have a companion who speaks good English, I am not the one.

    • Hi Taeko;
      Thank you very much for sending me a message and sharing your interest in joining me on this wonderful adventure. It would be an honor to join together, and you would be of such great benefit as you have been through part of the trek before. Your English is better than my other language so I am sure we’ll be just fine. There is also 2 other women who I have trekked with before that have expressed interest in the trek and may join us however are unsure at the present time. I am thinking of being in Kathmandu around Oct 3. Would that fit with your plans?

      Thank you again

  5. Hi Kirk,
    Thank you very much for your response.
    However, I prefer to start late October or early November.
    I am sorry but I cannot join you.

  6. Hi Kirk,
    Just saw your Three Passes trek plan. I am interested! I have been to Nepal a few times but have never trekked the Three Passes. I am retired and unencumbered thus quite flexible with any planning. If there is still an open spot in your group, send me a note and we can discuss in more detail.
    Best regards.

  7. Hi Paul, thank you for your interest!! There is absolutely an open slot as there are a few people who are interested no one has committed as of yet. With your having been to Nepal previously it would certainly be a huge benefit.

    All The Very Best to you

  8. Hi Kirk,
    Thanks for the quick response. Perhaps we can connect by phone – I live in Boise. Send me a note to paceratgmxdotus and we can exchange phone numbers.
