EBC and Annapurna

Hey Everyone!!

I’m looking to hike to EBC and then maybe do the Annapurna circuit if I have enough time. I’m hoping to do this in the month of April & May (no set dates yet), and I’m looking for 1-2 people to join me on this amazing adventure 🙂

I’d like to do it as cheap as possible but don’t have a set budget in mind yet.

I’m looking for someone that loves adventure, a seasoned traveler and just anyone who loves to laugh and have a great time!

Thanks,

Lori

  1. Hi Lori! 🙂

    I’m Payton, from California. I am also looking for someone (or a few someones) to join forces with for EBC (though I won’t have enough time to join you for Annapurna this time around, I’m afraid). I will be arriving in Nepal in early April (around the 5th or 6th) and would like to start maybe a few days after arriving to give myself a bit of prep time. My only restriction is that I need to be in Malaysia by May 2nd, so I will need to be finishing up the trek by late April. I am looking at a couple itinerary ideas that are around 16 days, possibly including Gokyo Lakes. I’m open to trekking completely independently, but I also like the idea of sharing a local guide and/or porter

  2. Hi Lori! 🙂

    I’m Payton, a 24-year-old (going on 25– I would actually be celebrating my birthday on this trek!) from California. I have traveled quite a bit and lived abroad long-term, but this would be my first time to Nepal and my longest trekking stint thus far! I am also looking for someone (or a few someones) to join forces with for EBC (though I won’t have enough time to join you for Annapurna this time around, I’m afraid). I am fun-loving, adventurous, and determined as hell to challenge myself a bit and have a great time on this trek!

I’m open to trekking completely independently, but I also like the idea of sharing a local guide and/or porter to give back a bit, spend some time with a local(s), and perhaps not have to carry my own bag, hahaha! 😉 It would also be nice to have a roommate at some of the tea houses, as I have heard it is sometimes easier to find twin rooms than it is to find singles.

    Anyway, let me know if you are interested in chatting to see if we might be compatible trekking buddies! I look forward to hearing from you. 🙂

  3. Hey Payton,

    Thank you so much for the reply. Id love for you to trek with me. It’s going be a blast. I’m still waiting to find out my dates (due to my work schedule) but I should know very soon. I’m hoping to be flying into Kathmandu around the same time as you so hopefully we can make it work, and I would like to do the EBC first and Gokyo Lakes and then do Annapurna after (depending on how I feel after EBC haha) I think that 16 days should be enough to do it (I hope anyways lol). I’m ok with having a guide as well, so would be nice to split costs.

    It will be so much fun to help you celebrate your birthday during the trek. I love a good adventure as well. I have done a lot of travel and have lived aboard also. So much to chat about 🙂
    I look forward to it.

    Thanks,
    Lori
