I am travelling by myself. Do you take small groups of random trekkers who may not necessarily know each other or only offer private tours? If you only do private tours how many people minimum do you need?
The 20 Days EBC 3 High Passes Trek is a private trek that does operate with only one traveller, although you will be charged a single supplement. As a solo traveller, you will be travelling only with a guide.
Alternatively, we have another similar tour that covers Everest Base Camp as well as the three passes. This tour has private and group options which means you can either travel solo or join a group. If you want to join a group, then please scroll down to the 'Group Tours' section on the tour page. Clicking on the 'Join Now' button for any of the available dates would mean that you will be travelling with a group.
How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
How much should my backpack weigh?
A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.
- Do I need a porter?
Do I require a porter for carrying water?
On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.
