Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes Trek

Hi! My friend Sarah and I are planning to begin our trek on 17 May. Well fly to Lukla, trek to EBC, and then return via Gyoko lakes route. We don’t plan to hire a guide or porters, mostly because of how busy the trail will be, plus we’re both on fairly tight budgets. We’re both in good shape but not avid trekkers, and looking for a few to join with us! Pretty flexible on timing, but we definitely don’t want to rush through the trek! Message me if you’re interested in meeting up in Kathmandu on the 16th (or you can meet Sarah earlier as she’s already there!)

Happy trekking 🙂

  2. Hey Madeline! I fly into Kathmandu on the 16th and plan on doing the EBC also! I’m on a tight budget as well, but would love to get to Gokyo lakes as well. I’m a pretty keen tramper, but slow and steady is good because of the scenery!

  3. Hey, I am also interested in given time period. I am from India and work in UK. Right now I am in india and free for a month, Please notify me if you would like me to join you guys.

  4. Hey there,

    I’m looking to start ebc around the 15th too. Sounds like we are at the same level of fitness and expertise and don’t want to fork out heaps for the trip too. A friend who just got back from Nepal recommended a company called ram mountain adventures and I’ve been in touch with them and they have quoted &1050 for a 12 day trek which includes a guide, permits, accomodation, flights to and from lukla, 3 meals a day, down jacket, sleeping bag. If anyone is interested in this trip or has found a better deal please let me know because I really want to do this trek with a like minded group of people.

    • I will start EBC trek 9 days on May 16(Arriving in Kathmandu on May 15 ).Imperial Nepal Treks quoted me for $925.00 same thing included in package except is for 9 days.

  5. Hi, pls let me know if I can join.

  6. Hi Madeline, I am flying into Kathmandu on the 13th and would be interested in joining you! I am also on a tight budget but would be interested in hiring a local guide. I would also like to do a large extension of the trek to the three passes, but would love to have companions when ever possible.
