Gokyo – Kala Pattar – EBC

Hi,
My name is Sonthai Dang. I had a very early plan to go trekking to Gokyo-Kala Pattar(possibly EBC) with one of my friend. Unfortunately my friend just confirmed that he could not do it this October. I am looking for a trekking companion asap. My email is yachanly@gmail.com
I want to hire a porter guide to make the trip more comfortable.
Below is my schedule, please check to see it fit. I did not include EBC but it could be very flexible. We could start any time around early till mid October. I want a relaxed, safe and slow-pacing trekking, so there is a lot of acclimatisation days.D
Best,
