Everest Base Camp Trek

Dear all,

My name is Aron Groen, I just graduated as a psychology student at the University of Amsterdam, where I live. I’m a social, nature loving guy, passionate about mountains, experienced in trekking in the Alps, physically fit. I’m looking for friendly people to share the road with!

-I’m planning on starting at the first week of march. I will fly to Kathmandu around the 1st of March, flexible about the exact starting date of the trek, as well as the duration.

-I think a porter would be a good idea. I’m planning to take quite some stuff with me since I’ll be staying in Nepal for a longer time.

-Although I’m fit I’m not in a hurry, open to enjoy the atmosphere as much as possible, letting people take photos etc.

-Concerning budget: as a student I’m hoping to keep the costs as low as possible, but I won’t skip the necessary stuff, eat good food and use good gear.

-I’m flexible about which version of the trek to take (for instance about alternate routes, extra days etc). I’m in favour of flying to Lukla and start there.

-I don’t have a certain amount of people in mind to band up with. It’s just that I’m interested in social, open minded and friendly people to create beautiful memories together.

-I’m staying in Nepal from the 1st of March until end of April. I’m open for ideas for things to do after the trek.

Are you in for a beautiful time in the Everest region and you agree with the points above? Cool!

You can leave a comment below or message me. I think my contact details are in the account that I just made but I can be emailed at aron_groen11@hotmail.com. If we connect my suggestion is to meet up on Skype sometime.

Looking forward to hear from you!

  1. Hi Aron

    My name is Govind and I am from India. I am planning to do EBC and the 3 lakes during the same time. I was wondering if we could have a brief chat and then take on to doing this trek together. I have had a look at your description and agree on all of the points that you had mentioned. It’s good to stay in have hygenic food.

    I am not a student and work for a biotech company in India. I am in the middle of a job transition and wanted to get outside the normal business life for a few days before I get stuck in the next one. I am an active sports person and generally an easy guy to hang out with.

    I plan to get back by the 24th of March and was contemplating of starting this trek a day or 2 earlier. Let me know and I can drop you an email and we can discuss more.


  2. Hi Aron,

    I am in the process of planning a trek in early April so if you were going to do other treks or travels within Nepal first, then I’d love to join you for the Three High Passes trek. My dates are fairly flexible but the earliest I can do this is probably the end of March.

    Let me know if this could work out at all!
