Trekking in Nepal – Jiri – EBC – Gokyo Lakes – Looking for Travel Partners


My name is Bhavesh, I’m 24 and from the UK.

I’m looking to start my travels from Jiri (not taking the flight to Lukla) and travelling through to Namche Bazaar and onto Goyko. From here, I’ll be looking to travel back on myself via Phortse onto Pangboche and finally onto EBC, I’ll be looking to hire a guide for the higher altitude journey from Namche Bazaar onwards – but feel that the walk in from Jiri may not require one at that point (I may be wrong) – any advice would be helpful.

I’m looking to start this around the 7/8th October and envisage the trek to last for 22-24 days or so.

Please get in contact with me if you’re looking to travel at a similar time. My plans are flexible – although I’m certain on not travelling over the Cho-la Pass.

Cheers! 🙂

    Are you in Kathmandu now? I just posted a similar trip. I was planning on leaving Sept 26th.


  2. Hi Ben,

    No sorry mate. Flights are all booked and fixed now – Ill be in Kathmandu on the 18th, with the 7hr Jiri bus ride on the 19th and the walking to start on the 20th.

    Shame – those starting the trek from Jiri seem to be few and far between!

    All the best!


  3. Hi Bhavesh,
    I’m Alka from Mumbai, India.
    Im in kathmandu on the 5th october.. would love to start a trek on the 7th oct. 22 days suits me fine. Are you still looking at those dates ? I’d like to trek with a porter and guide. Write to me about your plans.

  4. Hi Alka,
    The dates above have changed and now I will be starting the trek on the 19th October if you are able to make it for then?
