“The EBC and Kala Pattar expedition was breathtakingly beautiful. Our crew was amazing, especially our guide Aakash and cook Sukurum. We could not have done it without our crew and their endless support. It was a huge challenge conquered by everyone in our group thanks to the expertise and encouragement of our leaders.”

“Your team looked after us incredibly well. I want to single out our guide Richi (Rishikesh Nepal) for being especially responsible for making the trip a success.not only is he a great mountain guide, he was expert in all the aspects of our tripmanaging both our health and safety on the mountain with aplomb and able to make us feel at ease that everything would be fine. Hes a real asset to your team and I personally would not have reached my goal without him.he was there every waking minute for us and that contribution should not be underestimated. None of our team got sick, and this is because of the great team you have looking after us, food, water, advice were all 100% spot on and nothing was too much trouble for these hard working people, from the sherpas to the porters it could not be possible to have a better bunch of people (they are superhuman by the way carrying all that gear). It was the challenge of a lifetime and probably the hardest thing Ive ever done but Im so glad we booked with World Expeditions, and should i do another trekking/hiking challenge in future I'll never go with any other company but yourselves.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the weather going to be like when I travel to Everest Base Camp?

    The weather in Nepal varies by season. For example, November to January is the dry season with sunny days, clear skies and usually no rain. However, on Everest Base Camp, the temperatures at this altitude will be cold, particularly at night. February to May and September to October is the most popular time to travel to EBC, with usually fairly dry and stable weather, although there may be the occasional shower. June to August is monsoon season in Nepal, but once you pass 3,000 meters altitude there is less and less rain. Check out our guide on the best time to visit Nepal for more on specific monthly climate and seasons.

  • 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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking.
