Everest Base Camp Trek- Expedition Departure

Hello All,

I am going on April 4th to EBC on the Expedition departure.
Wanted to make contact with others going on it, to share tips, training and get to know the group.

I am flying out from Heathrow as a solo.
This will be my first trek, so not sure what to expect, just reading up on everything and getting the kit together.


Hi Siobhan.

Just making contact and to let you my wife Jo and I have recently booked this trip also.

No set training plans at the moment however it is likely that a lot of our walks will be based along the South Downs as we live near Brighton.


Hi, I will also be on this trip and have just started training and researching equipment as not done anything like this before.

look frward to meeting you all.


Hi all
I have also booked with my daughter Jodie and my brother in law Rob.
Doing our training in midlands as we live near Kidderminster
Looking at equipment and wondering how cold it will be

Hi all,

Solo traveller going from Heathrow. First trip of this kind for me also. I'm from North Manchester and will be doing some training in the area. Wondering if anyone would be interested in maybe setting up a Facebook group for this?


Hi, anyone else booked to go on the April 28th Trip?

I've just booked this trip and will be joining you in Kathmandu from Manchester via Doha - looking forward to meeting the group :-)

I've done a few treks before (mostly South and Central America) but this one has been high on my list for some time, so really looking forward to the challenge!

I am flying out on the 28th April for the EBC trip,

My name is Neil

Hey Neil,
So relieved someone else is actually on this trip! Was starting to wonder!
Have you started preparing in any way yet?

Hi all,

For those coming on the EBC April 4 expedition trip, I've created a facebook group EBC_April2017 - if you'd like to meet before the trip, please join and say hello!


Just sent a join request Gren.


Hi Anna & Neil

I've just booked the trip for April 28th. Excited and nervous at the same time!


Hey Louise!
I feel the same!
Are you flying out of Heathrow?


I'm flying out from Heathrow on April 28th!! Wanted to say hi and am wondering if there is a Facebook group for this trip?? :)

Hi Nina & Anna
I'm also flying from Heathrow. Are you both prepared?!

I hope so! Just trying to get hold of the final pieces of kit and sort out my visa :) What about you?
