EBC trek slow pace

Im a 25 years old female from Hong Kong. I have no high altitude experience therefore I am going with a guide and a porter. (Or porterguide) I am also looking for a partner to trek ebc at a slow pace with me (it’s a holiday after all!)

I will arrive KTM on the 26/9 at night and leave on the 15/10 morning.

  1. We have already made a team of 5 members, 2 are from Bangladesh and 3 are from Shanghai.. we are planning for Everest Base Camp, and we will take 2 porters, but no guide.. We have booked a flight for Lukla in 4th September, so if it’s possible for you, you can join us !! Thanks..

    You can also see my last post, though I’ve made a small change on the schedule..

  2. If you are planning EBC trek and hiring porter.. before hiring porter be sure your porter is insured or not???

  3. Hi,
    My name is Sonthai Dang. I had a very early plan to go trekking to the same route as you with one of my friend. Unfortunately my friend just confirmed that he could not do it this October. I am looking around to find a companion.
    I am male, 32. I want to hire a porter guide to make the trip more comfortable.
    Below is my schedule, please check to see it fit. It is very flexible. I did not include EBC here but it could be changed. Flexibility is good! We could start any time late October and end in late October. 20 days in total is good for me. I want a relaxed, safe and slow-pacing trekking, so there is a lot of rest days.D
    Hope to hear from you soon!
