Everest Three Passes and Lobuche East
I am planning an combination go the Everest Three Passes trek with an ascent of Lobuche East, one of the more challenging trekking peaks in Nepal. I will getting a guide for the Lobuche East ascent. I am currently looking at a 6 day course with Equator Expeditions, for which the cost is $850. I am still undecided on whether to get a guide for the trek.and then going it alone for the rest of the trek. In terms of dates, I am very flexible so could begin at any time from late September trough October. The whole trip should take around four weeks as i would like to attach side trips. I am also trying to keep the cost as low as possible for the trekking section.
I am looking for a partner to join me for the whole trip, or even just the first half of the trek.
