Everest Base Camp Trek - 31st March 2017


I wondered whether there was anyone departing on 31st March 2017 for the base camp trek.

I've been training in the lake district for the last 7 months, and I'm so excited to get to Nepal.

Anyone else on this trip?


I'm going on the 31st too.
Really looking forward to it. Trying to do lots of walking in preparation.

Hi all

I'm on this trip also, really looking forward to it. I've been training over the last few months but managed to injure myself, so had to rest for 1 month. Now I feel unprepared! Need to get back walking as soon as possible so I can keep the fitness up.

Have you bought all your equipment yet or are you hiring it there?

I've been walking every fortnight, but stepping it up in the new year. I have all my equipment, but need more clothing for Nepal, as I've only ever needed one day's worth at a time.

Is anyone flying from Manchester via Qatar?

I think I have all the things that I need. I've watched a couple of EBC packing videos on YouTube to see what others have taken! Some people seem to be able to fit a huge amount into their bags!
I'm also flying from Manchester via Doha.
Not long to go now.

I'm flying from Manchester to Abu Dhabi then Katmandu.

I think I have most items, but I also don't want to take too much. I'm hiring a down jacket and sleeping bag in Katmandu but will take a sleeping bag liner with me.

What time will you both arrive? I'm due to land at 17:10 in Katmandu.

My name is Gill by the way, so its very nice to chat to you both before the trip.

I'm arriving in the morning.
