Everest Base Camp TrekEverest Base Camp

Spending almost 15 hours a day browsing and working on internet. I was “tooooo” depressed reading articles  like “software engineer quit job and travelling the world “ sounds so adventure and amazing right. So i did it so and started travelling the Himalayas solo for 28 months. But guys don’t do that mistake and please ignore all these articles. A good planning helps you travel the world without quitting the job 

The main Aim of the trip is travel solo self supported and avoid tourist and get best best experiences as cheap as possible and make some new friends. so the best route is traditional 3 passes trail covering 3 highest Nepali passes ( kongmala, chola & renjola passes) 5300M+, Gokyo Valley , Gokyo Ri (Summit and best view of Everest in the morning ), Cho Oyu base camp covering 6 lakes of Gokyo Valley and view of Everest North face , Kala Patthar, Everest Base Camp, Tengboche and lot more.

Stay,Food & Drinks 

 This place is world famous for trekking you will be getting everything i am not kidding. there where so many pubs and bars Mostly Irish Bars in the whole route.

But i want to travel like how locals and porters travel so here is the cheapest way of filling your soul with food & drinks.

  1. Dal Bhat  Unlimited (Veg & non veg ) – 3$ to 9$ the higher the altitude the higher the prices are 
  2. Tea –  0.6$ to 2$
  3. Water – 1 bottle of packed water is 1$ to 8$ ( whole trip i was drinking Tap water and never had any issues ). Gorepsherp they need to melt ice for water so no free water and it cost you 8$ for warm refilling per Litter
  4. Stay – there where amazing hotels till EBC so no need of tents. almost everywhere free stay in hotels but u need to buy the food from same hotel. If you don’t buy food and need to stay in Hotel it will cost you 20$ – 30$ per night.
  5. Drinks – Raksi, Chhaang  these two where local homemade and cheap. A Pitcher will be 2$ – 6$ and you will be getting beer and other Alcohol as well but very expensive 


 Things must try – Dal Bhat, hot chocolate, Raksi, Chhaang , buff, yak steak, timbur (the best and only available in here ) and best Bakers are available in Gokyo valley
