Everest Base Camp
Greets all! I am doing a 12 day EBC trek starting December 8 to December 19. Actually I’m landing in Kathmandu on Dec 7 to give me an extra day in the city. I’ve hiked 40km in a day before so I’m in ok shape. This will be the first time that I’ll be over 5000m (4300m is my highest). I’ll be doing a moderate pace on the way up but am going down in 3 days so it could be a little faster. I am prepared for 8 hour days the last 3 days so it doesnt have to be too fast. I’ll be hauling a deuter 47 but no tent so I’ll be using the tea houses or guest houses. If anyone wants to meet up, let me know!
Day 1 (Dec 8): chill in Kathmandu
Day 2: fly to Lukla (8:30-9) and hike to first or second stop (Phakding or Monjo)
Day 3: hike to namche bazaar
Day 4: chill for the day, small hike up to the museum and then back to town
Day 5: hike to tengboche or close by
Day 6: hike to dingboche or close by
Day 7: hike to loubuche or close by
Day 8: hike to gorachep and EBC. stay in gorachep for the night.
Day 9: early morning hike to watch sunrise. then down to periche or close by
Day 10: hike back to the bazaar.
Day 11: hike to Lukla.
Day 12 (Dec 19): fly back to Kathmandu (7-7:30)
Final notes: I didnt bring trekking poles with me over the pond so I’ll probably be buying some in Kathmandu on Dec 8. Can anyone recommend a place? Thanks!Reply
