Everest base camp & Gokyo lakes

Hi there,

guess we are probably the first to book...be good to hear from anyone who is going, it's a while off but the training has already started :-)

not sure I have been talked into something that seems like quite a challenge...only time will tell.

First step Lake District :-)



Hi Sue, I am thinking about booking for November for TNE too. Just a bit concerned about the highest couple of points. I have hiked the Annapurna Sanctuary (with Exodus) and the High Inca Trail, but none the less, still trying to take the final decision! Good luck with the training. Natasha

Hi Natasha,

You really should just go for it...I also hiked Annapurna Sanctuary and the High Inca Trail, guess we both see EBC being the next big challenge :-) I have just returned from a ski trip to Canada and although it was good exercise, I ate my body weight (they do big portions :-(...so the training will have to start in ernest after the snow clears.)

I am not a great fitness fan so it is all a challenge to me...one life to live and all that!

Let me know if you go ahead,





Hi Sue,

Also booked in February. I,m taking my son, Jack, for his 21st birthday. 1st time we have booked a trip like this but up for the challenge . Have started some trainging but always something else to do, must trye harder. Jack spends a lot of time in the gym so he will be ok



Hey Ricci,
so glad to know we are not doing this trip alone :-)
We are so looking forward to it, but you are right you have to get into the regular hill walking to kick start the training.
We have done a couple of trips with Exodus and we were in Nepal 2 years ago. if you need any tips let me know (though this site is full of tips and advice) :-)
5 months to go and counting
Keep in touch


Hi Sue, 

I made a mistake, I'm not on this trip.

I leave the following day and i'm just doing Base Camp.

Hope you are not alone
