Everest Base Camp Trek

I’d like to do a 12 day Everest base camp trek & looking for partners
I land may 3 in Kathmandu & looking to start on May 4
I’m interested in independent or with guides…I’m a very fit hiker so feel comfortable either way though learning about culture, etc would be enjoyable
I’m Also raising funds for schools so am hoping to visit after the trek & bring supplies to schools in need..
So excited & looking forward to it!

  1. Hey, Faina 🙂 I think we’re planning trips around same dates. I have a post just below yours, let me know if interested to plan something together…

    • Hi Onur, I’m heading to Lukla on Sunday i think to start trek on monday ish. Are you in Kathmandu? I’m here now. Not sure to get guide or not? I’m keen to take 14 days or so, just acclimating and don’t go too fast. What are your plans? 🙂

  2. Hi Faina & Onur,

    Planned to do it from 1st May to 12th May. If interested please let me know. Looking for companions.

  3. Hi Faina im in kathmandu now. Would you fly to Lukla on 4th and start same day or stay in lukla a night? I’m keen to start on 2nd and maybe no guide. That’s nice I’ve just been volunteering at a school near chitwan jungle in south who really need new English books I am thinking of sourcing some. But yes there are many schools.. Talk soon 🙂

  4. Hello Faina and everyone!

    Wanting to do 12-14 day trek in Everest Region, starting from Lukla May 5 or May 6. Considering Goyko Lake trek as slight diversion instead of Everest Base Camp as the destination – supposedly less touristed, lots of stunning turquoise lakes, along with Everest views from Goyko Ri. Could be enthused about EBC as destination also….

    Up for going with/without guide or porter – but prefer a guide that doesn’t make hospitality arrangements.

    Let me know if anyone wants to chat!

    • Hi! I am in Kathmamdu at the moment and looking to fly to Lukla on Friday the 6 or Saturday the 7. I plan to go up to base camp and go Gokyo ri. I will be moving slow as I am recovering from digestive issues but plan to take about 18-20 days. I’m open to doing part or all of this trek with a partner.
