Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek
My friend and I are going on the Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek with a Nepali Company recommended to me by a work colleague. We’d like some friendly company so get in touch if you fancy it. We’re two 26 year old males from Bristol UK. Easy going. easy to talk to and all that jazz and really excited for this. We plan to arrive in Kathmandu on October 18th and follow the plan below that the company has emailed to us and leave November 7th. The plan is not finalised yet – I’ve asked for the trekking to be extended from 14/15 days to 17. Hopefully with a few more people we can get the price down a little too.
