  1. Hi!
    I am planning to do EBC via jiri and also cover Gokyo Lakes. The stay along the route will be at Tea Houses. I think it will take around a total of 20-22 days for the entire trek. I am not looking to hire any porters ot guides.
    As far as the experience goes , I too am novice who wants to do this trek before venturing further into the mountaineering territory. I am going to vlog the whole trek.
    Though I am planning to do it in December but am open to do it anytime after 13th September if i find like minded company.
    Thanks and Regards

  4. Hi Craig,

    I will be flying into Kathmandu on 31st Aug and leaving Kathmandu on 15th September. I would like to keep my costs down as well by staying at the local teahouses and not hiring a guide or porter. I plan to fly into and out of Lukla at the start / end of the trek.

    Perhaps we could work something out if you are agreeable 🙂
