Mount Everest Base Camp

Hi hikers!

My name is Marrit Kloen, I am 22 years old and born and raised (and unfortunately still living) in the Netherlands. The 1st of January I will start my Asia-backback tour. 🙂

I would love to hike to Mount Everst Basecamp, from Lukla. And find someone/some people who’d like to hike with me. I don’t have any hiking experience, but I am certain while hiking with some company, we can find the way ourself and take care of eachother. 🙂

Since I don’t have any experience, I would like to take the track slowly and find someone who’s comfortable with this. Perhaps we can hire a porter every now and then. I don’t want to rush the hike but take our time. Maybe rest a day or go to a hotspring on the way back.

I prefer to meet up in Kathmandu and maybe do some shopping before hand (hiking clothing, maps, GPS). I don’t have an exact starting date. But I would like to get back in time for Holi :).

Let me know if you think we can meet up!

(ps, i like sheep)

  1. I am keen and I have a hiking gps

  2. Hi Marrit, I am also a 22 year old female looking to do this hike around the same time as you! I have a little hiking experience, but none in high altitudes. I also would want to take our time getting up there to fully enjoy it! Let me know if you’d like to meet up!

  3. Hey Marrit,

    I’m also 22years from Germany and in Nepal right now. Over new year I trekked the Annapurna circuit with my brother and now I still have time and was thinking about going to Everest in February.

    I would wanna start in salleri or jiri so I don’t have to fly to lukla but I would be interested in meeting other trekkers for the higher parts.. I have time so I will be slow.

    As yourself write with no experience you know how Cold it will be? In Gorak Shep -15°C inside is expectable. For February good equipment will be key.

    Would be cool to hike in a nice group,

    PS: at that altitude there more yaks than sheep 😉

  4. Hi Marrit,
    I am Cloud and I have a plan for ECB trek at the similar date as you, I intend to trek from 11th Feb, as I would arrive at late on 09th Feb (if my flights’ timing works out).

    I also consider hiring a porter so that I could enjoy my trip the best.
    So do you think we could meet up and hire a porter together?

    I have trekking experience some mountains about 3000 meters and went well with guides. The mountains which I trekked are natural so I had to guide to show ways.
    About guide for ECB, let consider later.

    In almost itinerary, the walking distance every day is about 10 km. It would be ok for me as I have the experience to trek more than 20 km per day on mountains.

    Firstly I intended to trek solo. And now having trekking mates is better and more interesting.
    I could say you some good mountains in my place for your long trip in Asia.

    I am looking forward hearing from you soon.
