Everest Base Camp

Postby nepal2014 » Tue Jun 17, 2014 9:16 pm

Hi all, this is Mark & Brenda from Las Vegas, Nevada. We're very excited to meet our travel companions. We were with G Adventures in 2012 and did the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. It was an awesome trip. Anyone else signed up for the early September trek?

Hi All:
Our trip starts on September 7th so it looks like we will be ahead of you. Maybe we will meet on the way back down. Are you planning on taking any gifts for the children or the tea house owners?
We are getting so excited!

Had not thought to bring gifts, but now you mention it thats a great idea!
My only concern is extra baggage- trying to stick to absolute essentials :?

We did the Inca Trail in 2014 which also included a home-stay on Lake Titicaca. I had read about bringing gifts for the home-stay so I was glad I did. The only thing I have read about the EBC trek is not to bring gum or candy and it has to be something light. I did read two blogs where the people brought Bic pens for the kids. I was thinking about pens & pencils???

Hi Paula,

My friend Jess and I are on the same trip as you (19th) and we're coming from South Wales so us Celts can stick together?

Looking forward to meeting you. Libby :) x

Hi Libby and Jess,

Great to get your message! I'm arriving on the 18th too and staying in the Fuji hotel so we shop should keep an eye out for each other. It's nerve wrecking knowing what to take or not, I still have to get stuff in Kathmandu. See you both soon:))
