  1. Hi Karlo,

    I will have plan trekking to EBC on 20th Dec (solo traveller), please let me know if you want to join.


    • Hi Nurdrajat

      We start from the date as stated in this advert. We can flex Lukla +/- a day but no more.

      Thank you for your interest and good luck.

      Kind regards

  2. Hi, i will be in Kathmandu from the start of september and will do EBC as a warm up for others. So timing could work for me.
    Have you considered a longer trip and starting from jiri? Think it adds about 5 days but a friend recommended it.
    Any other climbs for you?

  3. Hi Folks, Me and my friend who is Doc is on similar schedule and budget. Let me know if we can join you. We both have interest in Photography. Thxs!

  4. Hi Karlo,
    I was planning to do the Everest base camp trek roughly around september/ beginning of october so the departure for the 14th September would fits my plan. I would like to join you for the trek, let me know if I can join you and if we can discuss further details via private messages! Cheers!

  5. Hi Karlo,

    Can you share your – Personal Contact Details.
    I would like to get info about you trek EBC in shoestring budget.


  6. Hi Karlo. Myself and my partner are also intending on doing the EBC and then onto the 3 Passes. We land in Lukla on the 17.9.19 and will have all our passes by then as we are already in Kathmandu. Are you thinking of hiring guides/porters etc? I was thinking it may just be close enough date wise to work for us. Thanks. Tracey (p.s. we’re also from England)
