Everest Base Camp Trek

Hello Everyone,

I am Ryan from SE Asia..

This is my first time in Nepal, and first time hiking at high altitude in the Himalayas.

This Nov 2017, I and my close buddy are aiming to reach Everest Basecamp, INDEPENDENTLY!
We have also included Gokyo into our itenary, So we would be completing the EBC-Gokyo circuit from east to west due to the Acclimatization factor.

I plan this trek without guides or porters. Just going to EBC and Gokyo Lakes independently on a relaxed and fun manner. No stress. We just wana soak up the beauty of the Himalayas, and get lots of pictures along the way.

I am looking for fun hiking partners (not more than four) to trek to EBC and also Gokyo Lakes on the start of the second week of November. Since we are travelling on a budget, I am thinking of and looking for partners who are interested to travel with us without any guides (or probably hiring a guide on our way to Gokyo from Dzonglha, as ChoLa Pass is known for its notoriously unpredictable trail) then fly out from Lukla to Kathmandu after the trek or whatever is the most cost efficient and convenient. The trek takes about 17 days to complete, Lukla-Lukla. We would be flying out of KTM in to Lukla on the Morning of 8th Nov, and fly out of Lukla on the 24th morning, if all goes well.. There are a few Acclimatization days built in to the trek to avoid getting Mountain sickness.. ‘SCARYY’..

As this is a once in a lifetime experience, it would be awesome to be travelling with fun and like-minded travellers. 🙂

We are fun, down to earth, open minded lads from SE Asia, and we are looking for likewise travellers to make this a memorable one. We are pretty flexible too…

Please do drop me a message, if anyone is interested.. 🙂 Ciao…

  1. Hello Ryan,

    I’m also planning a trek to EBC. Actually this was a last minute decision for me and I don’t have any detailed plan yet. Currently I’m completely solo and looking for a trekking partner. My proposed start date was 7th of October but I didnot book my flight yet so I can also start with you. We can have a chat and talk details. Thanks.


    • Hey Hasan,

  2. HI!
    We are a couple and we are in Kathmandu right now. We are looking for trekking partners- EBC with Gokyo lake is our preferable trek, so it would be nice to go together. We plan to cut costs by not taking flight to lukla and take a bus to Jiri and walk to Lukla. It takes five days to go there so we could meet in Lukla for example. If it is fine for you just contact us, greetings 🙂

    • Hi Aleksandra,
