EBC + Island peak

Hi, looking for 1-2 (max 3) partners for EBC with climb of Island Peak

Option 1: Full trek (EBC + Island Peak)
Start date (=flight to Lukla) is fixed = 26th of September (if weather allow). Back to Kathmandu is planned on 14th/15th October.
I will hire guide-porter (~20usd/day) and from Chhukung will be hired climbing sherpa (all package incl. tents/meals/gear, est. price ~700usd/person).
Searching for easy going and reliable partners (NO guides please ) who would consider to join. Ideally it would be ambitious beginner with not very fast tempo
Preliminary itinerary is already is in place, it might be adjusted on partner/-s wishes.

Option 2:
1-2 persons can join climbing Island Peak from Chhukung (4d/3n, incl 1 night at High Camp) and back there again. Start date approx would be 7-8th of October.

  1. Hi Maikas,

    I am interested in the second option. My plan was to do the Three Trek Passes but now I am assesing the possibility of doing EBC + Island Peak and then I will see how I feel. I’m quite experienced in mountanering but mainly in Europe, Himalayas is another level.

    I usually travel quite slowly and in a very low budget. I prefer to spend the money in these experiences like a trekking peak. That’s why I’m not interested in the option 1, I prefer to do it independently at my own pace, no Lukla flight, etc.

    Let me know if your plan is still on track and you would like me to join, thanks!

    • Hi Alvar! Sure, you are more than welcome to join either with option 1 either option 2
      I’ll send you a private message and let’s discuss the details there.
