Everest Base Camp Trek


I never post on these kind of forums but thought I’d give it a whirl. I plan to trek (hopefully) independently starting in Kathmandu, taking a mini-bus to Lukla (I say this broadly, as I understand the mini bus journey is segmented by stops in Salleri etc). I then hope to (basically) wing it to EBC, hopefully with a small group of people looking to do similar.

For the record, I wouldn’t class myself as a shoestring backpacker – I could afford to fly, but I’m trying to reduce my carbon footprint and don’t fancy chancing my mortality with a landing at Lukla. I also prefer experiencing the whole thing and not being shunted into Lukla with ease ..!

I’m 32, work in IT, live in London and have travelled a lot and am easy going/open minded. I’m hoping to find trecking partners looking for a similar trip. I’m doing this hike off the back of my gf working in India, and to book-end a holiday with a personal bucket list tick.

If you’re looking to do similar around April 11th – 15th drop me a note.
