Everest Base Camp Trek

Hi I am planning to do the EBC trek in end of February 2017, haven’t booked anything yet, so everything is still open.
I do not plan on hiring a porter, but I think a guide can be usefull.

was thinking to stay on the trail for 12 to 15 days, an some extra days in Kathmandu.

If you are interested in joining me, please let me know.

  1. Hi Tijmen. Good to know about your plan. Infact i am also planing on the same day, though that is in primary stage only. So i would like to more about your plan, so that we can match ours .

  2. Hoi Tijmen,

    ik ben nu in Kathmandu en wil de EBC trek ook gaan doen. Ik wil dan vanaf Jiri lopen. Ik zit ook te denken aan een gids, en als we met meer zijn kunnen we die kosten delen. Ik weet niet of Jiri ook in jou plannen past?

  3. Hi Tijmen, How are you doing?

    I am Rico and like you we will do the Everest Base Camp trek, but a little bit later.

    At the same time we would to ask you some questions and it would be great if you could answer them before and/or after your trek to the EBC.

    1. Is it possible to hire a porter in Lukla?
    2. How high is the fee for porter for a day?
    3. Does this fee also include the accommodation, food and insurance of the porter?
    4. How many kilograms can a porter carry (max. 15 or 20 or xx)?
    5. How much are meals and water (boiled or bottled) close to the Everest base camp?
    6. Do you need crampon or climbing iron on the trek?
    7. How can you book accommodation along the trek before the trek or while being on the trek?

  4. Hey man I’m Alan 23 and just hopping around the world. Just got done with Cairo and now find myself going to Nepal instead of South Africa as intended. I should be there 2/23/17 so technically today. I’m going to be in Nepal for only about a week or so and would be done to just go to Mt Everest base camp if you want. Let me know man!

    • I think it’s going to be nearly impossible to do EBC in a week..
