Everest Base Camp Trek


I’m looking for a partner to join me for a trip to EBC this December. I’m a 23 budget traveller from Melbourne, Australia who’s fun and outgoing and looking for like-minded people! I’m thinking of doing it independently or with help of a local guide.

My plans are as follows (This is just an outline. I need to be back in Kathmandu on the 5th of January for my flight home):

23/12: Kathmandu to Lukla and trek to Phakding
24/12: Phakding to Namche Bazaar
25/12: Rest at Namche Bazaar
26/12: Namche Bazaar to Tyangboche
27/12: Tyangboche to Dingboche
28/12: Rest at Dingboche
29/12: Dingbouche to Lobuche
30/12: Lobuche to EBC via Gorakshep
31/12: Gorakshep to Kala Pattar to Pherich
01/01: Pherich to Tyangboche
02/01: Tyangboche to Namche Bazaar
03/01: Namche Bazaar to Lukla
04/01: Lukla to Kathmandu

Anyone keen or have any advice with this route please let me know!

  1. Hi, I am arriving in Ktm on 4th of December. I am interest in doing the ABC and the EBC trek during my stay at Nepal. I am a Non-residential Nepalese (NRN) from England. I would have completed my ABC trek by the time you arrive in Ktm, and would be starting my EBC trek from 17 December. Do let me know, if its suits your travel plan. Good luck:)

  2. Hey, Im planing to start same trekking date as you as well and the schd from my agency also end with Jan,4 back to Kathmandu.

    If you wanna join me let me know, but im going with agency. They took care with everything. All meal, all accomodation, guide, porter with cost of USD 1150. Im sure it’d be cheaper if it’s two persons.

    Under normal circumstance i d consider doing my own thing and hire guide when necessary. But it’s very very cold there at the end of year and i dont want to spend time worry about other things except how to survive -10c inside the tea house at night.
