EBC in September, arriving to Kathmandu on 6th sept. Leaving from KTM on 5th oct.

Hi! I’m 27 year old reliable male from Finland and I’m keen to do the EBC trek in September. Like the title says, I will be arriving to Kathmandu on 6th of September and from that day I have 30 days to do the trek. I have experience of trekking in Finland, especially from Lapland, and I have no plans to hire a guide or a porter. At least not at the moment.

I’m not in a horry so I thought to walk the route in about 15-20 days. It would be really nice to share the costs (I’m trying to do this as cheap as I can) and experience with somebody and it should also be a lot safer as well! 🙂 Well write me to platz@mbnet.fi if you have silmilar plans for September.

  5. Hey Sakib!
    Your itinerary looks great! Just the kind of I was thinking. It’s a shame that I arrive only few days after your start but I might be able to change my plans. Do you anykind of idea about the daily costs what it might be per person?

    • Hello Juselius,
      it’s really great to hear from you.. yeh, I’ve seen your starting date, it was 9th September, and you’ve said it’s flixible.. so that’s why I left a message here.. and well there’s nothing happened to say shame on, right.. don’t worry man..

      for each day the cost will be approximately around 1200-1500 nr including the bed charge.. I will bring some dry foods, like instant nodules pack, peanuts, snickers chocolates, gatorade energy drink etc which will reduce the pressure on my meals.. I’ve followed the same plan in Annapurna Base Camp trek last month, and in Jomsom Trek last year.. I have some photographs of the food menu of Everest Region along with their price, if you need them I can mail you..
