Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek
My husband and I will be arriving in Nepal around October 12th or 13th, traveling overland from India. We would like to hike Everest Base Camp and are looking for anyone who might want to share the costs of a guide for the higher elevation portion of the hike. We will not be flying in from Lukla, but hiking in from Jiri and we are pretty flexible with our timing and schedule, but will need to be completed by the end of November.
Right now, our plan is to hike from Jiri to Namche without a guide. We’d like to hire a guide and possible a porter to take us from Namche to Base Camp and back to Namche. We’d be interested in meeting up with anyone in Namche (even if you’re flying to Lukla) or hiking in from Jiri together. If you already have a guide from Namche we’d also be interested in joining your guided trek to lower the costs.
We are 29/35 years old and in relatively good shape (although we have been traveling for 4 months so our normal activity has been a little limited). We do prefer to go slow enough to enjoy the views, villages, and acclimatize correctly so we are not looking for a speedy trek. We are laid back with positive attitudes and love the mountains!
