Everest Base Camp Trek
Update: due to flight availability and a tighter-than-expected schedule, I’ve had to change the details of my trip. I’m now arriving in Kathmandu on April 5 and flying to Lukla on April 6 to begin a 12-day trek to EBC – so no Goyko Lakes for me :(. I’m currently in the process of trying to hire a porter. If anyone would like to join for all or part of the way, let me know!
Hi folks – I’m planning to do the EBC trek next month. I’m prepared to do the trek solo, but it would be great to have some company on the trail. I’m in Laos until mid-April, after which my dates are fairly flexible. I could arrive in Kathmandu as early as April 14th and would need just a couple of days to get the logistics squared away (I already have all of my gear). I’m planning to do the standard 12-day route, but would be open to doing a longer hike.
I would say I’m in fairly good shape, but I’ve never done a hike quite like this before so I am planning to hire a porter. I understand the porters are able to carry gear for up to two people, so it might be possible to split the cost.
Hope to see you on the trail!Reply
