Any one else attempting Everest base camp???

We have booked on this trip departing March 16th. Our third trip to Nepal and i think the most challenging. last year we trekked to Annapurna base camp fantastic!

Also trekked area in foothills of Everest. Would like to hear of any one else going on these dates.



We are on this trip and looking forward to it.  We did Annapurna Sanctuary 2 years ago and hooked on the Himalayas since.  Looks a bit tough but should be worth it.


Good to hear someone elase with us!!! Love Nepal but have nightmares of Cho La pass But will get there! Contemplating some form of support for boots and also questionning sudden rise in daily expenses???

We've been using yaktrax just to get to the bus stop - let alone Cho La pass. I'm sure our tour leader will get us over some way or another. Have you read the Nepal Rough Guide to the pass?

Hope that we have enough money - We were in Kathmandu in June last year and prices seemed about the same as year before.  

I'm definately more worried about fitness than money. I'll probably be too out of breath to eat.

We were contemplating Yaktrax - friend who was there in November did not use anything he says the guides were good and gave assistance etc.We were in Nepal last year in March  Annapurna base camp - and food etc did not cost as much about the same as the year before when we were there. Read Rough Guide but description rather more daunting than description by friend who was there in march - hope he is more accurate!!!

Hello Pedro, is that the same Pedro who did the Everest in Luxury trip in November 2007??  If so let me know, I have recently completed this trip.


Sorry no - Everest in basic tea houses with ramblers but certainly not in in luxury!! 2009.

Appears that there are only five booked on the trek but it is guaranteed to go.



That's good less people for me and Janet to hold up. 

 I am slightly worried - do other people know something we don't know?  Anyway, 6 weeks to go.

Trekking bags arrived - 16 days packing on trek - longest we have done hope it will all fit in!!! Just hope it is warmer in Kathmandu than the uk!!!


We got our bags on Friday (nice bags).  Have you any idea how little stuff 12 kilos is after taking into account sleeping bags, treking poles etc.  I only have space for 1 T shirt and a pair of socks!!! Will have to be very organised. I'm sure Kathmandu will be lovely and hot - a nice change from our winter weather.  We are off this weekend to climb up a big mountain to get a bit of practice in -  Weather should be wet and cold, with plenty snow and ice -ah the joys of walking in Scotland.

No big mountains where we are - so will have to continue in the gym!!! In the lakes this weekend but will not have time to climb anything too spectacular!!! Visit to family!
