Everest Base Camp Trek


I plan on heading for EBC at the beginning of April, I don’t have too much mountaineer experience but I do have a moderate fitness level and I’ve become so fascinated by Everest and the trek that follows with it.

My plan is to rent and buy most of my equipment in Kathmandu since I’ll be coming from the Philippines scuba diving for a month. I want to do it solo with trekking partners, I don’t plan on hiring a guide nor a portier.

I hope to finish the trek in 14-17 days depending on acclimatization issues and any changes in route that might occur for any reason.

Hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Hey David,

    My name is Megan and I am also very interested in doing this trek on a budget. Have you already found other people to join and have you already booked your flights?

  5. Hello! I’m also looking for a partner to rent equipment in Kathmandu and go more independently. I have some experience trekking in the US but nothing like this. But I’ve done some rugged backpacking. This might be easier with tea houses and food supplied as we go along. I would prefer to leave earlier like March 23 or 24th. Are you flexible with your dates? I can also wait longer if I can’t find another partner with the same needs. I just need to loo into a visa extension or something because I will arrive March 8th
