Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

I have already got my flights for arrival in Kathmandu on 30 April and depart on 17 May. My plan is to trek to EBC from Lukla for 15 days and descend via Chola Pass & Gokyo Lakes and fly back from Lukla to Kathmandu. I am looking to share a guide with other trekking partners and book the accommodation along the trek ourselves, as it goes (so not booking in advance). I have already contacted some guides and got various offers that would include: guide that can also carry bags, with his insurance, accommodation flights to/from Lukla with around 25-40 US$ per day. To add: flight to/from Lukla (ca. 330US$ per person)+ permits, fees & TIMS (40US$ pp). Interested people, please do let me know. Namaste!

  1. I fly out on the 15th of May. (I’m in Nepal from the 10th of April)
    I would be interested if you doing only Gokyo Lakes with ChoLa Pass (No EBC)
    Let me know if youre interested !

  2. We are 4 people from India, and we will start from Lukla on 26th April. Our plan is to complete EBC-Chola pass-Gokyo lakes in 17 days, i.e. we have return Lukla flight on 12 May.
    We are planning to take 2 porters (for 4 trekkers) but don’t feel that a guide will be needed. May will be a high season. In case you are interested to join/share a guide, do let me know. I see that you are starting 4 days after our trip though.

  3. Hey Eduard,

    I would be very interested in joining your trip. I haven’t booked my flights yet but I may be flying into Kathmandu on 30th too. I will definitely be there on 1st. I would then fly out on 17th or 18th. Let me know if you’re still looking for partners.
