Everest Base Camp Trek

Hey trekkers,

UPDATE: I’ve been getting quotes from companies based in Nepal regarding organising a guide and porter prior to my arrival in Kathmandu. I’ve accepted a quote from a reputable company for a 13 day EBC trek which will cost $607 USD and includes a guide, porter and their meals, accommodation and insurance. They will meet me in Lukla. If this suits you and your budget please get in touch!

I’m a 25 year old Aussie making the long trip to Nepal in October to tick something off my bucket list – EBC! I have no prior trekking experience, however I’m pretty fit, well researched, well travelled and confident in my ability to make it there and back safely and successfully.

My aim was to sort out a guide and porter on arrival in Kathmandu or arrange this in Lukla. I’m happy to make this trip without a trekking partner but figured it would be a great way to make a new friend/s as well as splitting guide and porter costs.

I’ve already purchased my flights to and from Lukla so am pretty restricted on dates now and don’t intend to change my ticket. I’ll be flying to Lukla on the 29th October and (ideally) flying back to Kathmandu on the 10th November.

If these dates suit you give me a buzz and we can sort something out.

Thanks 🙂

  1. Hi Todd,

    Seems like we have similar plans for Everest Base Camp!
    I’m just going to copy and paste my post, have a read and let me know what you think.

    Hi all,

    I’m a young Aussie chick looking for a trekking buddy or two for the trek Everest Base camp!!
    I have a pretty small window of opportunity to do this trek with work and uni commitments, I’ll be arriving in Kathmandu on the 28th of October 2016 and am hoping to fly to Lukla to begin this bucket list adventure of mine on either 29th or 30th Oct; and I’d like to take 14/15 days to get to EBC and back.
    I have done similar treks before in Chile and Argentina (nowhere near as high though) without a guide or organised tour (I literally just had a map and did my research before hand) and ideally I’d like someone who has been on multi day treks before!
    I myself am quite fit and am not a dawdler, in saying that I won’t be trying to rush this experience!
    I’m more than happy to do this trek independently (just us without a guide), but I’m also open to hiring an experienced local guide but strictly no porters (just a personal principle of mine).

    If your and outdoor enthusiast and like the sound of what you’ve just read then I would love to hear from you

    Happy adventuring,
