Everest Base Camp

I am planning on doing the EBC starting October 9th – October 20/21st. I need to be back in Kathmandu no later than October 23rd. I am planning on flying out from Ktm to Lukla on October 9th and going on with the trek.

I did ABC last year (without the guide) and really loved it and want to do the EBC this year.I am from Nepal, speak the local language (currently living in US) and I do not think we need guide for the trip (this will bring the cost down). But, if you want to go along with the guide, I am open with the idea.

  1. Hello,
    I’m also planning to trek to EBC leaving Kathmandu around Oct 9. Return date is open as I have plenty of time. I am an Irish male and previously I have trekked in the European Alps and this year I climbed Mont Blanc. I am okay without a guide (I hope).


    • Gene,
      Sounds good. When do you reach Nepal. Let’s talk about details and we can do this together.


  2. Hi Bonas,

    I will arrive in Kathmandu on Tues. 7 Oct. I’ll be in Nepal for 7 weeks, so for the EBC trek I won’t have any deadline, but it sounds like your time is more limited, so we can plan it to suit your schedule. Do you know if the flight to Lukla should be booked well in advance or if it is possible (and still economical) to book it in Kathmandu a day or so before flying?
