Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

Hi,

Looking for independent trekkers to join this amazing trip to Everest Base Camp.
I will start in Lukla on 25th March ( already ticket bought from Kathmandu).
I’m well fit, used with hikking, altitude reached until now 6000 m in Bolivia.

I’m planning to do it on low budget as much as possible, estimated budget 600 $.
Trip duration 16 days. If needed, willing to split thes costs for a porter.

  1. Hi,
    Also looking for partners doing this trek or one of it’s varations on the cheep side. I might wanna try climbing Only Island peak, which is located at this area. Time-wise I’m flexible, I have about 2 months for trekking in Nepal. I have lots of experiense trekking (Andes, Pyrennes, Alps) – but it’s first time for me in the Himalayas. If relevand – do send a message.

    • Hi Ravid,
      Nice to see that you have already good trekking experience! I’ve been also in Alps & Andes, Carpathians and some trekkings in Kyrgyzstan. For me it’s also first time in Himalayas. I’m interested, but I cannot do the Island peak as not spending so much time in Nepal 🙁 (I cannot make it longer than 16 days as I will loose my return flight). But we can do at least a good part of trekking together. What do you think?

  2. Hi Catalina, I’m also planning on doing EBC around the same time as you. I did ABC last year with a trekking company but I’m looking to go myself this time. Are you planning on camping or staying in tea houses?

    • Sorry I just noticed that you wrote Teahouse in the logistics section. I’d prefer to stay in teahouses too though to be honest I don’t think I need a porter as I am not planning on carrying much apart from a sleeping bag, change of clothes, maybe some snacks…

  3. Hi James,
    I will stay in teahouses and the Porter îs an option. I have the flight already to Lukla so unfortunatelly the date are fix for me ( 25th March -10April). Thinking to do 12 days or 16 days trekking option.
    Write me on private, we can exchange Skype or whatsapp to talk .

    • Hi catalina , please share you exper about your trip I am going on 9 april to jiri-ebc-goyko lakes -lukla

  4. Yup. I am going around the same time. I will be booking my flights as soon as I get confirmation on a few things… 16 days at most trekking is enough for me (that’s what I did last year and it was just right).

    A guide could be useful for booking places especially teahouses near EBC…

  5. Hi Catalina, I’m also planning to do EBC at the same time. It would be great to share guide & porter cost. Just want to check on your route to EBC. Is it via Gokyo Ri?

  6. Hi Mohit,
    I’ m planning to do first EBC and continue to Gokyo Ri…but I’m flexible to start also on the other side. If interested I could send you my itinerary.

    • I’m ok with either side. Can you please share your itinerary?

  7. Hi, people
    I am landing in Kathmandu on March 25th in the morning. Next day taking a flight to Lukla. From Lukla I will do Three Passes Trek.
    I am looking for buddies to do it together or to join group.

  8. Hi Predrag,
    I have the flight to Lukla on 25th March early morning. Planning to start the trekking on 25th. Not sure if Mohit already booked for 25th morning for Lukla. We’ll meet Ravid in Lukla.
    Let’s see if we can wait until 26th March or you catch us on the way…first days are easy, not too many hours of trekking. What do you say?

  9. But my route to EBC and Gokyo continues from Namche to Chukhung then Kongma La – first of three passes that I will trek.

  10. Hi Catalina,
    It looks like I will be a couple of days behind you all. I probably will fly into Lukla March 27. I’d be interested in your itinerary though, as I am now considering Gokyo Ri as a destination…

  11. Hey Catalina,

    I am interested in joining you if you are still looking for trekking partners. Could you send me more information about what your trekking itinerary looks like? Or if you’re already in Kathmandu it would be awesome to meet up and chat.
