Nepal trek Everest EBC/Gokyo/Jiri from May 17-June 18
Hello. Looking for fellow travelers that might be looking to trek in Nepal from around middle of May to middle of June, or thereabouts.
I am arriving into Kathmandu on May 16, and looking to trek to the EBC. I have four weeks available to me, and ideally, I would like to fly into Lukla, trek to EBC by way of Tengboche, Pangboche, and Periche. Trekking back, I would like to take the Cho La pass, if it is currently passable, hiring local assistance to find the safe route over the glacier, in order to hike back down to the Namche/Lukla by way of the Gokyo trek. Given the amount of time i have, I might consider trekking back from Lukla to Jiri, which would also provide an opportunity to stop at Bhaktapur. Besides passing Cho La, I was hoping to make the trek without guides or porters, and was thinking of using teahouses for lodging since I wasn’t planning on traveling with a tent. I need to be back in Kathmandu for a rendezvous by June 20th at the latest.
All of that being said, I prefer to not make such a trek on my own, and am open and flexible to alternatives, both in route, and in hiring a guide/porter. I am a 33-year-old male, married, from New York but have spent the past few years living in the Bay Area and Indiana. I jog, swim, and do yoga regularly, and hike from time to time.
If there are fellow travelers out there interested in partnering up for this trek, or some variant of this, please send me a message either here or at my email: email@example.com.
All best. Safe and happy travels.
