Everest Base Camp Trek

Dear all,

My name is Aron Groen, I just graduated as a psychology student at the University of Amsterdam, where I live. I’m a social, nature loving guy, passionate about mountains, experienced in trekking in the Alps, physically fit. I’m looking for friendly people to share the road with!

-I’m planning on starting at the very beginning of March. I will fly to Kathmandu around the 1st of March, flexible about the exact starting date of the trek, as well as the duration.

-I don’t think I need a porter, but I’ve read up on the pros and cons and I think hiring a guide might be a good idea, especially during the last stages. But I’m open for discussion.

-Although I’m fit I’m not in a hurry, open to enjoy the atmosphere as much as possible, letting people take photos etc.

-Concerning budget: as a student I’m hoping to keep the costs as low as possible, but I won’t skip the necessary stuff, eat good food and use good gear.

-I’m flexible about which version of the trek to take (for instance about alternate routes, extra days etc). I’m in favour of flying to Lukla and start there.

-I don’t have a certain amount of people in mind to band up with. It’s just that I’m interested in social, open minded and friendly people to create beautiful memories together.

-I’m staying in Nepal from the 1st of March until end of April. I’m open for ideas for things to do after the trek.

Are you in for a beautiful time in the Everest region and you agree with the points above? Cool!

You can leave a comment below or message me. I think my contact details are in the account that I just made but I can be emailed at aron_groen11@hotmail.com. If we connect my suggestion is to meet up on Skype sometime.

Looking forward to hear from you!

  1. Hi Aron

    My name is Govind and I am from India. I am planning to do EBC and the 3 lakes during the same time. I was wondering if we could have a brief chat and then take on to doing this trek together. I have had a look at your description and agree on all of the points that you had mentioned. It’s good to stay in have hygenic food.

    I am not a student and work for a biotech company in India. I am in the middle of a job transition and wanted to get outside the normal business life for a few days before I get stuck in the next one. I am an active sports person and generally an easy guy to hang out with.

    I plan to get back by the 24th of March and was contemplating of starting this trek a day or 2 earlier. Let me know and I can drop you an email and we can discuss more.
