Everest Base Camp Trek
I am heading to Nepal at the end of December, (for the first time, yay!), and am planning on doing the EBC Trek. I am looking to commence the walk around 4-5 January. I am by no means a athlete, and intend to do the trek at a relatively sedate pace (which would hopefully help a little with any altitude issues). I am thinking of hiring a guide and a porter, or alternatively a single porter-guide. To keep costs down (and to heighten enjoyment), I want to find one or several people to enjoy the experience (and the extreme cold) with! I am an easy-going guy, and think that the trip will be fun, though of course arduous.
While I am looking to keep costs low, I would like things to be at least somewhat comfortable (as much as can be expected in the mountains) so don’t mind spending money where it’s needed.Reply
