Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

Hello!
I arrive in Nepal on the 1st November and want to trek to Everest base camp and the gokyo lakes. Hoping to leave within a few days of arriving in Kathmandu.
I don’t really have much planned as of yet, but would be looking to meet up with easy going people who are interested in doing the same thing.

I’m reasonably fit but it would be my first time trekking at high altitude so looking to go at an easy pace. I’d be willing to go with or without guide depending on what others think.

  1. Hi Helen.I’m glad to see this post. I also want to trek to EBC and Gokyo Lake trek.Currently ,I have no partner to trek with and I’ll be happy to join you. I have allocated max 20 days on the trek just not to get rushing, walk with easy pace and enjoy the view. As my arrival date is same as you, I hope we can meet in thamel street.
    It will be nice to hear from you soon,Helen.

  8. Hey Helen,

    Greetings from Asia.. I’m planning for EBC-Gokyo lakes around the first week of November.. Currently a solo trekker and looking for trek buddies due to my partner had to pull out of our plans due to sudden unavoidable work.. Was wondering if I could tag along if the dates matches.. I just wana soak in the beauty of the Himalayas, so i too would be at a slow pace..Hope to hear from you..

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    • Hi Helen,
      I reach 7th Nov, if you’re still around, could meet up at Thamel.. 😀
