Anyone else going on this trip? Can't wait but i'll be wanting to pack the kitchen sink aswell! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
i'm going on this trip and can't wait!!!
i recon its going to be tough but really good. see you all there
Is this the trip that is leaving Heathrow on 3rd October? If so then I'm booked on it as well.
I'm taking a warm jumper and some anti-yeti spray!
Final balance paid today - guess i'm going to EBC!!!!
Anyone bringing "black tie" for the evening meals??
Super excited....... No idea though how to limit stuff to 12kg...
Dont worry too much about the kitchen sink I went in October 2 years ago it was absolutely fantastic. The 12 kg limit only applied to the Exodus kitbag up to lukla. Anything in your backpacks did not count. I got all my load down to the limit only to find I could have taken more in the big bag as the backpack with all my camera gear and waterproofs never came into the equasion. The weather was brilliant walking in shorts and tee shirts until we got past the tree line. Very cold at nights but with a good down jacket not a problem. Bottled water and chocolate etc available all the way there. Take enough headache pills as i had a headache every morning but no other signs of altitude problems. Just drink plenty of water and take your time, ther was a couple with us who never made Kala Pathar because of sickness one who was always strutting out in front. The organisation was first class and the trip was hard at times but well worth it. You will enjoy it Guaranteed. I was 61 years young when I went first time trekking so no problem. I am off to the Inca trail this October. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
