  1. Hi Himanshu! I am also looking for a trekking buddy. I also still need to book tickets and my plan was the second / third of June. Then I would fly the next day to Lukla, prepare/rest a bit and then go for the Three Passes Trek (this is optional / my favourite, if you prefer something else, say it 🙂 ).

    So, basically, that’s my plan.
    Little bit about me: I am Derk-Jan, 23 years old, and have travelled to China and Indonesia, where I hitchhiked and travelled in each country for around 1.5-2 months. Now I am going to Nepal in June and continue to North India afterwards.

    • Hey Derk-Jan,

      If you are still looking for companions for 1st week June, and do EBC via Gokyo Ri. As I dont think I have extra time to do 3 passes Trek.

      I am looking to start the trek from lukla and open to going to gokyo first or on the way back and standard routes. My dates are somewhat fixed at 6-7th June. I’ll be in Kathmandu from the 3rd.

      A little about me , I am 33 yr old and reasonably fit. I have done a few treks around Ladakh and Himalayas. Have been to 14000 ft Gand la pass in Ladakh which was a fairly easy 6 day trek no AMS issue. My speed is slow and leisurely. I wanted to do a sort of meditative trip (hopeful).

      I am travelling alone as of now and would love to have other partners on board . Would be wanting to stay in tea houses throughout. I would be happy to have a porter/guide if you would like . Happy to go Independent also. Open about the trip except dates

  2. Hallo Derk-Jan,

    Thanks for showing interest here, Actually this is my first multi-day trek,so I am not sure if i’ll be able to go for three passes trek, So i would like to stick to 12 day trek itinerary from Lukla to EBC. I have contacted some of the direct companies of Nepal with very reasonable rates where they have groups going either on 28th May or 2nd of june from Kathmandu.I’ll ping separately with my contact details and we can talk and close.

  3. Hi Himanshu,
    The plan that I have for EBC is as you would say, a trek on ‘shoestring’ rates and would be starting for KTM on the 31st of May or 1st of June. Will be starting from Lucknow, India. If you are still looking/collecting your group, I’d wish to join in. Don’t worry, I am a nature admirer and all I will be there for is giving company when needed.
    About me, I’m a Masters in a Animation student. Love music and silence too. My purpose for this trek is photography which is accompanied by my abstract writings.
    DM me if still interested.
