Trekker's Opinion about Everest Trekking:

Experiences of our clients and others submitted in Lonely Planet Travel Forum:

Age Barrier
Last November my friend, aged 66, and I, 64, walked from Jiri to EBC and flew back from Lukla; the walk from Jiri to (near) Lukla was by far the hardest part but did prepare us for what was to come. The upper part was very tiring but well within our capability. It was our 3rd trip to Nepal having previously walked the Annapurna Circuit. We walk for 3 hours or so once a week and occasionally on our own on other days; I run about 3 miles every other day. We were fitter than most of the other trekkers, especially the Japanese and Russian groups, and mentally far better able to cope. We met one man of 76 on his way back down! You will find plenty of companions to walk with, of all ages and nationalities. You must allow a few free days at the end of the trek if flying back from Lukla to KTM; we were stuck at Lukla for 5 days along with hundreds of others - some of whom missed their onwards flights back home, some forfeiting their return fare and having to buy another ticket.
