Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

Hi I am looking for a partner (or two) for the Everest base camp and three passes trek in mid May. I plan to do it solo without any guide or porter. I have never been to the Everest area before but have plenty of experience trekking in the Indian Himalayas and the French/ Italian Alps. Yes, I can navigate. I am 30, male and live in London. Doing research in Earth Science. We can start from either Jiri or Lukla. I walk at a moderate pace and love to take pictures.

  1. Hi Gaurav,

    I’m also looking for same kind of trek during mid feb. Kindly let me know whats your plan and the budget for same.


    • Hi Eshan, Sorry for the late reply. My plans have changed a bit. Maybe later if you are still interested. Cheers, Gaurav

  2. Hi Gaurav, I plan to on doing EBC, no fixed dates so pretty flexible. Only concern, the cold in February. However read that it’s the best time for some spectacular views. Thanks, Abi

  3. Hey Gaurav,

    I will be teaching near Lukla until June, so your projected date is attractive. I have never visited the Himalayan region, but I have remote trekking and mountaineering experience in Alaska, USA. My only concern (slight) is acclimation, which shouldn’t be an issue if we travel at a moderate pace – also living near Lukla for a couple months prior should help.

    If this works out, I would preferentially meet up with you in May.
