Everest Base Camp Trek

I plan on catching a bus to Jiri and trekking Jiri to EBC and then flying back from Lukla, looking for someone to join for conversation and to look out for each other. I am either doing this trip or the Annapurna Circuit depending on weather/budget/people.

  1. Hey I’m Patrick 28 from Canada Sebastian is be interested in doing this with you, let me know if your still planning on going and we can chat more,

    Cheers

  2. Hi Patrick, still planning on doing so, still undecided between Annapurna or EBC. I’ll send you a message and we can discuss further.

  3. Hi Patrick/Sebastian, I’m Yudhir from Pokhara, Nepal andI also want to do EBC in January, and I want to avoid flying to Lukla. I’d love to join you guys. Please let me know how your plans are coming along.

    • Hi! I’m Inge from Holland, also planning a trek during this time! I was thinking about 15-26 januari.. Have you already planned something? Don’t know if your dates are flexible?

    • Hi Sebastian, Patrick, Yudhir, and Inge 🙂

      I really want to do the Everest Base Camp Trek, as well as the Three Passes Trek.

      I land in Kathmandu in the evening of Saturday 14 Jan, and was hoping to fly to Lukla on 16/17/18 Jan to start the trek towards EBC and thereafter do the Three Passes (which is a strongly recommended trek because of the beautiful scenery). If the weather conditions permit, I would really like to do this, and would appreciate some company 🙂

  4. Hi Inge, Are you also thinking of taking the bus to Jiri and starting the trek from here? Me and Sebastian may still go during Mid January, but still not decided.

  5. Hi guys, same as Yudhir said, I’m keen to do the EBC starting from Jiri, probably starting sometime from the 16th of Jan onward. Weather dependent, if it looks likely there will be too much snow etc, then will look to do the Annapurna Circuit or Base Camp instead. Let me know if you want to join and we can make plans.

    • Hi Sebastian, how does one ascertain whether there is too much snow to trek in the Everest region? Is there a website we can go to?

    Feel free to WhatsApp me on +27710850522 to discuss.

    • Hi Jonty, thanks for the message, I’m planning on getting the bus to Jiri on the 17th and doing the trek from Jiri to Lukla instead of flying to reduce costs, then onto EBC, so not sure if our timelines would sync up!

  7. Hi Sebastian, im arriving in kathmandu on the 9th. Have you decided in a departure date yet? Im keen to join as would prefer some company rather than solo let me know! Lulu

    • Hi Lulu, so far we’re planning to leave on the 17th via a bus to Jiri, I’m getting in late on the 15th so need a little time to make preparations etc. Let me know if interested.

  8. I’m definitely interested in this. I’m currently in Kathmandu (just arrived) – anyone fancy meeting for a drink to discuss options? Feel free to PM me on WhatsApp me on +977 982 387 0853 to discuss

    • Hi Neil, that sounds great, see the comment below for plans so far, I’ll add you on WhatsApp and we can discuss further.

  9. Just to update anyone interested, myself and Yudhir are planning on departing Kathmandu to Jiri on the 17th to start out on the trek (weather permitting). I’m flying into Kathmandu on the 15th and will be around that evening and the 16th if anyone wants to meet up for drinks and to discuss!

  10. Hi Sebastian, that could work for me as I’m probably away kayaking over next weekend. Haven’t received a WhatsApp yet but definitely keen to talk (maybe a WhatsApp call)

    • Hi Neil, sent you a whatsapp, hopefully talk soon.
