Everest Base Camp Trek


Solo traveler looking for (a) trekking buddy(s) in October 2018.
24 year old, US, male. Leaving Japan after teaching for 3 years.

Considerable hiking and backpacking experience, in Japan’s mountains. Experience primarily consists of 2-5 day solo traverses.

I will be arriving in Nepal at the start of September. Plan on spending the tail end of monsoon season sightseeing in the Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur area. Once weather clears up and stabilizes in October, I hope to head for the Everest region with the aim of making it to Everest Base Camp. Considering to split costs for a porter or guide. Though I’m fit, I would like to take an average or even relaxed pace to allow for time to draw the surrounding scenery.

If you’re interested or have questions, please ask!

  1. Hi Florian.

    I’m Eveline, 25 and I just finished a master degree in sustainable energy technology in the netherlands. I have a few months travelling before starting grad school.
    I will be travelling Nepal end of august until somewhen in October and would also like to go to EBC. I grew up in switzerland, and I did a few hikes in the Andes. However I have never gone as high and not without a guide, but considering the popularity of the trek and how many people you’ll meet on the way, I think it would be fine. But I am open to share cost for a guide. Considering trekking pace, I definitely also go to enjoy and not as a sports challenge. It should also be okay to go at ones own pace and meet up a bit further along.

    Anyways, if you want we can try to meet up somewhen beginning september and see how it goes?
