Nepal

Hi there everyone,

Planning a trip to Nepal and the EBC (maybe gokyo lakes as well). I’m a 27 y/o girl from the Netherlands looking for a travel buddy to join me on the Everest Base Camp trek and to share the cost.
It’s my second time to Nepal. I have done the Annapurna trekking last year, and it was amazing. That’s when I knew I just had to do the Everest Base Camp as well!
I’m planning to start the trek on april 26th (arrive in kathmandu the 25th) and to finish it in 13-14 days.
I’m not waiting to join a organised tour, would rather go with or without a gide. I’m happy to carry my own gear.

  2. Hi there! I’m also planning to do the EBC hike in April. I’m from the US, but currently based in Laos until mid-April, so I’m in the region and my dates are flexible.

    I’m 30 and in decent shape, but not an experienced hiker, so I am planning to hire a porter. I don’t want to join a tour, and I’m prepared to go solo, but it would be great to have company on the hike!

  3. Hi Pippa,

    I am Aday, male from Indonesia. I have a plan to Everest Base Camp trek in end of April.

    I am interested with your plan, and like to explore more. In addition I have experience hiking in Indonesia for several mountain above 3500 metres above sea level. So I have no concern if we dont hire a porter.

    Waiting for your reply.
    Thanks!

  4. Hello ! Having quite the same experience : I was on the annapurnas circuit 3 years ago and coming back for EBC. If you are still looking for people, just let me know. I am in India now, quite flexible about the calendar, I could be in Nepal from mid April…
    Cheers, clotilde.

  5. Hey, I’m also looking to do EBC around the same time. I’ll be landing on 25th April in Kathmando, will take a couple of days to get the gear/permits ready and start

    I’m travelling solo, not willing to join an organised group but would love to have a company or two. Please let me know if you’re interested

  6. HI Pippa,
    I’ll be heading into Kathmandu on the same day. Your plan sounds exactly what I’m wanting to do. I’ve done lots of travel and hikes (Australia, Peru, Colombia, New Zealand) but it’ll be my first time to Nepal.

    I haven’t thought about the lakes but am super open to the idea. I wanted to spend a few days in Kathmandu before just to get some gear and get used to the place.

    Let me know if you’d be keen to meet up? Would be nice to have a buddy 🙂

  7. Hi Pippa,

    I am looking to do the trek similar days to you and am open to maybe adding on gyoka lake as well. Let me know if you’re still looking for people to join along for the trek!

  8. Hi Pippa,
    I’m Merijn, Dutch as well. I will hike in that area also, but arrive earlier, around 20th of April in Lukla.
    Feel free though to keep me updated on your plans. Since I will likely do three passes clockwise, we could try to meet up for a few days near EBC perhaps..
    All best,
    Merijn
