  4. Hi guys. I’m also interested. Just wondered if it’s a bit wet late August? Tory

    • Hi,
      I haven’t been in Nepal during August, but I researched via Google and in general there is still a big chance of rain during August and beginning of September.

  5. Hi Peter,
    If you are looking for a porter then please contact me. I speak english well.
    Thank you

  6. hey! I am planing to go on this trip around 13th of September with my brother. I’m 25 and he’s 23. I don’t have any real trekking experience but my brother has done a bit of it, will be his 2nd time in Nepal. We are planning on the 14 or 16 day trip, nothing finalized yet. Have you finalized anything yet?

    • Hi Moaz. Myself (Aussie girl) and and Indian guy are departing for ebc via Gokyo Lakes trek on the 16th Sept. we got a deal with guide and porter, flights, food etc for $1232usd. Feel free to join if you like!

  7. Hi Peter,

    Me (M26) and my gf(24) are hiking to ECB on the 12th as well (the 11th would actually be better but waiting for a good mate is no problem :)). Our hiking experience is limited to the usual preparation at home (Leverkusen/Solingen) and the Way of St. James (Jakobsweg).

    Why the earlier date? There is a very nice festival in Kathmandu at the end of the month that we don’t want to miss out on and we’ll depart Nepal on the 29th.

    I hope we are not to late to join your group. Cheers and see you in Nepal.

  8. Hi Peter,
    I will also arrive in KTM on the 19th Sept and is thinking of doing the EBC or the Three Passes Trek without guide, starting on the 21st Sept. Would like to trek with partners or in small group. See if it is possible to join you.


  9. Hey Peter and Felix,
    I will also arrive in KTM the 19th!
    I was thinking of doing the EBC independently starting from the 21st – 24th Sept.
    I have to be back in KTM before the 8th/9th Oct.
    It seems that we have a similar schedule, let me know if you are still looking for partners!



    • Yes, we are still searching!

      I will arrive around midday on the 19th and will try to be on the way either 20th or 21 (probably 21)

  10. Me too! Maybe we are on the same flight? That would be hilarious.. I’m flying from Kuala Lumpur.

    The 21st sounds good to me
