EBC (Gokyo Pass) – December 2013 – Trekmates?
Hey all, group of 3 friends looking for more adventurous trekkers to join trip to EBC (and Gokyo lakes if weather conditions permit).
Looking to leave from Kathmandu to Lukla (flight) at start of December 2nd or 3rd and take it easy to acclimatise well to EBC. We would also love to integrate Gokyo lakes section as it is said to be stunning and unmissable. From my research it seems 14-18 days is best for this, but we are flexible with dates or times. Would prefer to finish just before Christmas.
We would prefer a guide so that the trip is safe and also like to learn from local perspective. Have found some good tours for a private itinerary at very good value. Private allows us to be flexible and manage trek at our own pace, but we would also like to share this lifetime experience with some fun people too!
Would also prefer to avoid Western tour operators so that money stays in local economy without a middleman (plus avoid having a large group of 10 plus)!
I am 29 year old Englishman, tour guide in Europe by profession so always passionate on travel! Joining is a 30 yo male lawyer from Wales, and 22 yo Aussie female teacher. Poss another 25 yo from Wales girl, but she is not confirmed yet. Friendly and passionate bunch for this trek, so if you want some company on the trail then please get in touch and we can all get a good price, and have some company and friendship to share the experience with!

Would be great to hear from all ages, races, nationalities. Look forward to hearing from fellow travellers!Reply
