Everest Base Camp and Lakes April 2019

Anyone going on the 17th of April? Thought I'd get the ball rolling! 

Hi Kevin,

How are you? I am going on this trip from London on the group flight Exodus has arranged. How about you?

Hello, nice to meet you. Have you done this kind of thing before then? I'm flying from Manchester so I won't be travelling with the rest of the group. Decided to save myself the journey down to London for a change. 😉

Hey Kevin,

No, I have not been on a trekking holiday as long as this one is going to be. :)  I am doing the Mt Toubkal trek next week in preparation for the trip to Nepal. Which airline are you flying with?

Hi Kevin i am travelling to Kathmandu via Abu Dhabi from Manchester on 17th April  for the EBC Trek.

First time experience for me,really looking forward to this.

regards Rob

I'm flying with Etihad. First time so high for me but plenty of hiking/trekking under my belt. Looking forward to it. Trying to work on my cardio in preparation. Can't wait to see the views. 

I'm on Etihad too, flight number EY22 20:35.hrs.

I've been out doing plenty of mike's too in readiness.

I am flying with Emirates from London to Kathmandu via Dubai, arrival is at 8:40 on 18th April. I have never been at altitude this high before either, I am very excited to visit that area and looking forward to the scenery. I must admit I do more jogging than walking, but every little helps I guess..

I think there will be a shuttle bus service from Kathmandu airport to the hotel, organised by Exodus. Liklehood is most people will fly from London and meet at the airport on landing. 

Rob, we should meet at Manchester airport beforehand

I had an email notification about changes to the flight times about 4 weeks ago. I think we were due to land at pretty much the same time as the London flight. Not sure this is still the case, will have to check

Good luck with your preperations gents, I've just had a big night out in Manchester and haven't been running for almost a week now!!

 

 

 

I think jogging will probably help more than walking anyway Zsuzsa

Apparently smokers fair well at altitude because the body has already adapted to increased levels of carbon dioxide in the bloodstream. I'm not about to test this theory though! :-)

Hi Kev im up for meeting at  Manchester are you on flight EY22.

I must add that my trek doesnt include the lakes.Its just the base camp trek.

I'll check my flight reference and will let you know. Are we on seperate trips then? Or does the group split into two ? 

Must be separate hikes kev I haven't seen anything in the itinerary about lakes.

So it looks like there is a normal EVB trip starting on 17th April and then there is the the one that goes to the Gokyo lakes, also starting on 17th. The first one is trip code TNT and ours is TNE, I think Rob you are on the TNT one and we are on the other...😣

 

P.s.: I have become a bit lazier the past few days, no running is being done... 😳 is swimming any good replacement? 😁

Swimming is good cardio 👍
