Everest Base Camp Trek

Hey All,

My name is Tyler and I am an American living in Australia and looking to go to EBC around Oct. 1. I have done multi-days hikes before in Patagonia, Alaska, and New Zealand, though nothing of this length. That said, I will likely go without a guide/porter. I was looking to go to EBC and potentially Goyko Lakes as well. I considered the 3 passes but have heard mixed reports on how easy it is to find the trails without a guide.

I was also considering taking a bus to Jiri or Shivalaya and walking from there, and then flying back from Lukla, as I heard this can help with altitude.

I am looking for some easy going people to go at a pretty reasonable, leisurely pace, with a few rest thrown in.

Let me know if you are interested and we can find a time to talk.

Thanks and happy trails,

  1. Hi Tyler,

    I’m going to Nepal next week to do 3 Passes from Jiri. If you are interested, let me know.

  2. Hey Tyler, I will (probably) arrive to lukla today (still in the airport waiting). I was reading it would be safer to go with someone. (I have been doing day hikes by myself in switzerland, but I guess it is rather different here).
