Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek
I intend to land on the 1st of January in Kathmandu, take a trip to Jiri (or maybe a little firther up) on the 3rd and hike to Dukla. My itenary is under the final stages of planning. I just want to challenge myself safely – and see Everest. All are welcome to join me. I speak English and I have learned German (badly) – I am now a Chinese learner.
I write for a magazine and teach English.
