I’m heading to Nepal in December to do yala peak, whilst we’re there were looking to do Everest base camp! Just curious as to how other people have done this? With groups/tours, solo or your own sherpa? Also how long it’s took any of you? I know the timeline for most tours is 14 days but can you do it quicker or? Thanks in advance!
Also I forgot to add, I was also looking at maybe adding the gokyo lakes into the EBC trek! If it’s as nice as it looks/worth it?
I hope this message finds you well and you’re having a wonderful day!
Quick question for y’all – I have hiked the Annapurna Circuit a few years back in trail
shoes, I was curious to know your thoughts on trail shoes versus boots for hiking the EBC trek in early March?
The trail shoes I currently hike in are Hoka Soeedgoat 5’s.
Also…do you recommend Gators?
Thanks everyone for your wisdom
Hey everyone, I’m considering trying to do Everest base camp in late nov/Dec, but unfortunately don’t have a huge budget. I would prefer to use a local guide to help support them, and I also don’t have any trekking equipment with me so would need to rent or buy.
I have seen some package tours with all cost included so have a rough idea but if you use a local guide how much would you expect to pay? And also for the accommodation along the way?
Alternatively if need be, how hard is it to trek solo and how busy is it around this time with others on the route?
Also I am still a little confused about options to get from Kathmandu to lukla… some websites seem to suggest you can also drive between the two and some say flying or hiking is the only route.
Thanks for any help
Hello friends, can I ask how much is the airfare from Ramechhap to Lukla?
What is the percentage of trekkers who cannot complete ebc. Either through injury or sickness. Or just giving up and not wanting to go further.
What type of preparation is required for EBC trek. Is 2 years enough time for preparation? Is there any article that I can find to help me train for the EBC trek?
Around 21 November we want to go to Lukla. Are there jeeps going up to thamdanda? From there its just a 8 hour walk. I found this online but the hostel we stayed in, in Thamel, said that they only go to Salleri..
I will be in Nepal in December and would like to do the Everest base camp trek
Anyone already did it alone and maybe has some recommendations
Thanks in advance
We are leaving for Lukla tomorrow morning and starting on the three passes track! We heard there is a lot of snow on the passes. Is this correct?
Any information about Shey Phoksundo Park? How to go? Where to sleep? Is it necessary to make reservation? Do you need a guide?
