If viewing world highest mountain (at sea level) is your aim/ dream, what more can you say. Just pray for a good clear weather, voila, you would be mesmerized.

Hi, I am seeking guidance regarding my solo trek to everest base camp next month. This is a long one and I deeply appreciate your time to go through this and your advice. Am planning the start from Lukla around 20th Feb. I am 35, male, haven't done any trekking for some years now and live in Mumbai (sea level). But do jog/walk 2-3 times a week. Managed to walk 15-16 kms in 2 hr 20 mins (no weight though and on road/sidewalk). I understand main trekking season is from April onwards but that people do trek throughout the year. Am getting leave only now in Feb/March. Don't want to go through a trekking company organised trek. Take it at my own pace and also as on a budget. Intend to stay at tea stalls at the usual trekking route stops. Request your inputs regarding the following questions: 1) I intend to trek from Lukla to Namche to figure out how comfortable I am with the rucksack load. If needed only then hire a porter from Namche onwards. Is this an ok plan? 2) Assuming no porter - do you recommend I absolutely must hire a guide for the trek? Can one find fellow trekkers enroute during mid-Feb to mid-March period? Are there decent signs to head from one spot to the next? Basically can one get lost without a guide? 3) While the old INR (Indian Rupees) 1000 and 500 notes were always banned, I see that the Nepalese central bank has also banned the new INR 2000 and 500 notes. So for money does if carry a wad of INR 100 will that do? Alternatively, can one also carry say five of 10USD notes with which to pay for lodging/eating on the way? It'll reduce the amount of INR 100 notes to carry. 4) Later I have detailed list of items for your comments, but specifically: a) In addition to regular trekking shoes, will I also need dedicated snow boot? I have already bought the Forclaz 500 High Novadry trekking shoes from Decathlon. A friend advised to apply wax on the trekking shoes and said I should be fine. b) Will a 70 ltr rucksack suffice or do I need a larger one? 80, 100 litre? c) I don't want to buy a sleeping bag. I've read that one can rent a sleeping bag rated for -20 celcius from Thamel in Kathmandu. Recommended two places "Sports wear international" and "Shonas Alpine". Any idea on the cost to rent, deposit to be given, which brand, etc? d) I'll wear thick woolen socks. Do I also need to sock liners? e) For water, will two 1 litre bottle suffice and one keeps filling on the way? Or is it necessary to invest in a multi litre hydration pack also. f) Do you recommend trekking poles. If yes, one or two? I don't have any gear and intend to purchase the same from Decathlon in Pune/Mumbai. Items I intend to carry: 1) Rucksack - Qty 1 2) Small backpack for acclimatization walks and carry on luggage - Qty 1 3) Sleeping bag rated for -20 Celcius - Qty 1 - UNDECIDED need to rent from Kathmandu 4) Sleeping bag liner - Qty 1 5) Trekking shoes - Qty 1 6) Snow boots or gum boots - UNDECIDED 7) Woolen socks - Qty 3 8) Gatiers - Qty 1 9) Sunglasses (Polarised or Category 4) - Qty 1 10) Benny - Qty 1 11) Buff - Qty 1 12) Balaclava - Qty 1 13) Normal cap - Qty 1 14) Glover (inner) - Qty 1 15) Gloves (Thermal cum waterproof) - Qty 1 16) Thermal (Lower) and Upper - Qty 1 17) Dry fit full sleeves - Qty 2 18) Dry fit half sleeves - Qty 1 19) Fleece jacket - Qty 1 20) Down jacket - Qty 1 21) Waterproff jacket - Qty 1 22) Thermal (Upper) - Qty 1 23) Trek pants (convertible to shorts) - Qty 2 24) Waterproof pants - Qty 1 25) Toiletries kit 26) Medicines - Vitamins, Diamox, Bandages, antibiotics, water purification drops 27) Trekking poles - Qty 1 or 2 - UNDECIDED 28) Water - UNDECIDED - water bottle, additionally hydration pack 29) Headlamp and batteries Any other essentials that I am missing? I welcome your inputs and comments. Thank you and regards, rbewoor
