I am interested in attempting without using porters. If you are we can talk more. If not, you can always contact Chandan Singh of Crystal Adventures or Manoj Rawat of North Himalayan Holidays. Search and you'll find their names mentioned in this forum plenty of times. They will have groups that you can join. I crossed Kalindi Pass with Crystal Adventures and the service was good.

Leaves from work can be a problem for me, but I'd love to join. Let me know your dates, if you have them fixed, I'll see if I can manage

Do you plan to not have a guide as well? What do you do for navigation and meals in solo treks?

The reason I ask is: I usually go solo and without GPS/ maps, but only go for well-paved routes, with not much chance of getting lost. For meals, I don't take a stove, and rely on cold meals - energy bars, khakra/ thepla, dry fruits, sprouts, namkeen, etc to keep bag-weight within 14-15kg. I'm not sure if this will work for a route like Panpatia Col, and I am not used to carry heavier backpacks.

I feel that a guide would be necessary and relying on just GPS would be difficult. To reduce costs I am waiting for 3-4 more people. June and Sep seem to be the best month and either will work for me. I think 10 days of trekking and 1-2 buffer days is needed.

Regarding navigation, I've mostly relied on GPS and some guess work but most of the time there was a trail that I could see on the ground.

Regarding food, I try to cook something which requires not much more than boiling water--poha,upma,pasta,noodles,breakf ast cereals,dehydrated meals by MOM. I've used both butane canisters and the local kerosene stove. For short treks, I feel butane would be best. For long treks, the empty canister weight will negate the savings from the stove weight. The local kerosene stove is quite heavy. A multi-fuel stove would be better.
