Hello, I am planning for Everest Base Camp trek along with ‘Gokyo Ri’ and ‘Chukkhung Ri’ in early September. I know early September is considered as the ending part of monsoon, but I have no other ways. I will be an independent trekker; I won't take any guide or porter. If there is anybody else who’s also planning for the same time [independently], I will love to join. I’m sharing my full itinerary, and I will appreciate everyone’s suggestions about it !!
Day 2 : Kathmandu to Lukla. Trek to Phakding.
Day 3 : Trek to Namche, explore around.
Day 4 : Namche, Phortse Thanga, Dhole.
Day 5 : Dhole, Gokyo, Gokyo Ri, Gokyo.
Day 6 : Gokyo to Phortse.
Day 7 : Phortse to Pangboche to Dingboche.
Day 8 : Dingboche to Chukhung to Chukhung Ri, back to Dingboche.
Day 9 : Dingboche to Dughla to Lobuche.
Day 10 : Lobuche to Gorakshep to Basecamp to Gorakshep.
Day 11 : Gorakshep to Kalapatar to Dughla to Pheric.
Day 12 : Pheric to Pengboche to Tengboche to Khumjung to Namche.
Day 13 : Namche to Lukla.
Day 14 : Fly back to Kathmandu.
Day 15 : Fly back to Bangladesh.
I have some questions about the Golyo to Dzonghla part :
1. Is it possible to reach Dzonghla in one day, if I start from 7am?
2. Will it be safe to trek this part alone, in the 2nd week of September?
3. Can I hire someone from Gokyo, to help me to cross that part till Dzonghla? How much it may cost if I hire someone? [just an approximate idea about the costings!!]
I may need to add 3 more days on the itinerary to take the Jiri way, if the flights are not available from Kathmandu to Lukla in early September !!
