Hello, I am considering doing an EBC trek or similar this year as a 30th birthday present to myself.
I have read many reviews and my main question relates to cost. I’m not, how shall we shall, the most affluent person in the world, and the trip will take a significant chunk of my savings... truly a once in a lifetime trip.
The holiday itself is, of course, easy to budget for, but does anyone know about those additional costs that you pay once you’re over there? I.e. tips, extras for food, equipment, other spending money etc?
Also, in terms of equipment, my sister has a sleeping bag that’s been up Kilimanjaro and the Inca trail, so I’m hoping that this will suffice? What about coats and other walking clothes and equipment? Any advice on walking boots? I have some Brasher gore-tex walking boots but am well aware 2 weeks in the Himalayas’ are a little different to an afternoon in the Peaks.
Finally, what about time of year? If you get off the plane and the weather forces you back, what then?
Sorry for all the random questions. Guess what I’m after is just as much detail possible, after all this holiday would cost way more than my car!!
I hope these answer your questions and that you might give Everest Base Camp a go!
