Everest Base Camp Trek OR Annapurna Base Camp

I plan to arrive in Katmandu on April 4th and go from there. I am a fairly seasoned hiker so I don’t plan to hire a porter but am considering a guide (?) and would love a partner or two for the journey! I am open to either Everest Base Camp or Annapurna as I have heard great things about both. I look forward to hearing from any prospective partners!

  1. Hi Anna Marie , I am heading to Nepal early march, my plan was to walk from shivalya to EBC and back via Gokyo am going to fly back to KTM on the 5 April and take a bus the next day to Besi Sahar to start the APC and hopefully finish off with the Annapurna Sancturary walk if there is time. I like to take my time on these walks and not hurry so may have to alter my plans a bit if I feel I have to run to catch up and drop the Sancturary walk. I also like to see all there is to see and not miss too much. Could meet in KTM if suits and start out on Annarpuna circuit . I wouldn’t consider a guide myself, maby a porter if I was really struggling . Phil

    • Hi just forgot to say I am in Nepal until the 4th of may so would finish trekking a few days before then Phil

    • Hi Phil,

      I have decided to join another woman in doing EBC from Jiri starting on April 5 – sounds like you will already have it finished by then! Good luck to you and enjoy your journey 🙂

  2. I will be arriving in KTM on Mar 17th. Wanting to do a EBC trek either from Lukla or walk in from Jiri or Shivalaya. I’m easygoing and flexible. Don;t really have any time contraints so not looking to rush. If this sounds good to you, drop me a line and maybe we can figure something out. All the best – Kyle

    • Hi Kyle,

      I am joining another trekker in doing EBC from Jiri – we plan to meet in Kathmandu on April 4th and go from there. We are thinking of taking approximately 20 days total. If you are interested in joining us send me a private message and let me know! Thanks!

  4. Hi,

    I`m planning to reach KTM on 4th as well for EBC. Have not finalized porters/guide but itinerary is for 13-14 days back to KTM.

    Let me know if you have a small group that i could join. Have done a lot of treks in India Himalayas, so fairly seasoned 🙂

    • Hello and Greetings.

      I am from Bangladesh. ABC had been my dream trek and I am looking forward for a trek partner. If you are planning for ABC then I am interested to join in. Please share your travel period and cost ($500. is it actual cost?). As I heard the perfect season for ABC is March and October. So, i think it will be worthy if you pull in schedule to one week (March 28th) if possible.
      TIA.

  6. Greetings.
    I am from Bangladesh. ABC had been my dream trek and I am looking for a friendly trek partner. I have never done trekking in Nepal before. If you are planning for ABC then I am interested to join in. As I heard the perfect season for ABC is March and October. So, i think it will be worthy if you pull in schedule to one week (March 28th) if possible.
    Preferred ABC route is as below:
    Pokhara>Grandhuk>Chomrong>Bamboo>Deurali>MBC>ABC>>>>Zhinu>Grandhuk>Pokhara
    It will take 10/12 days. Need to be in schedule as I am a working woman.
    If you are interested, we can discuss further.
    TIA.

  7. Anne Marie,
    My brother and I are arriving in KTM on the evening of the 4th of April and hoping to get to Jiri on the Monday. We.are looking for 2 others to split the taxi cost (not too keen on bus) . Would your party be interested in splitting costs?
    Cheers Damian
