Trekking buddies wanted for 3-pass trek + Island peak
We, 2 young dutch guys (21 & 22), are looking for 2 other trekking partners to share the bill of the permit (max 4 people on 1 permit) required to climb Island Peak (Imja Tse). After climbing this 6,189 m (20,305 ft) ‘trekking peak’, we’re planning on doing the 3-pass trek through the Khumbu region, eventually heading back to Namche Bazaar & Lukla (from where you could fly back to Kathmandu).
We’re planning around leaving around mid march, but we’re quite flexible.
The total time for Imja Tse + 3-pass trek is estimated to be around 3 weeks, we’re on a pay-per day schedule with the guide and porter, so it’s very flexible and we cover as much ground per day as we feel up to!
We will be using a guide & porters from the highly recommended Visit Himalya Treks
The current quoted price is 30 USD/day for the guide(to be divided by up to 4) and 20 USD/day per porter. We know this is on the expensive side, but we would like to give both the porter and the guide a fair price, and we think 20 USD for carrying 20kgs across 3 5000m+ passes is pretty fair!
If we share the bill, the cost of climbing Imja Tse will amount to around 450 USD per person!
let me know if you’re interested or require more info. my nepali phone number is 9813368357
