EBC+Chhukhung-Ri+Chola Pass+Gokyo Ri

I’m planning a EBC trip with a few other trails, the itenary can be something like below, it’s not fixed and there is room for discussion. I’m flying from Toronto, Canada, and should be arriving on Dec 4 and will stay until Dec 23 or 24, so it’s about 17 days trekking. My time is not flexible as that’s all the vacation that I have ….

I’m not a regular hiker nor do I exercise regularly. I was told that this is a good thing when it comes to trekking in high altitude, lol. I have been to Tibet a few times for trekking including Mount Kailash which we did 52 km in 19 hours (well, the locals usually do it in 12 hours). I also walk slower than others but hey, trekkers are here for the long haul.

I’m looking a few partners to hire either porters or guide together to share the experience and expenses.
