This 12-day Everest Base Camp Trek is a special itinerary designed for budget travelers seeking to explore the base camp of mighty Everest. This popular trek is filled with breathtaking scenery, traditional Sherpa villages and culture, mountain vistas, and a grand display of magical glaciers and centuries-old monasteries. We will be hiking through magical Sagarmatha National Park, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site.

The first trip highlight is an adventurous small-plane flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (make sure to sit in the left-side seat to enjoy the first glimpse of the Everest region!). Lukla offers a fresh mountain environment, fascinating green rolling hills, and a distant view of snowy peaks. Other highlights include a hike to Kalapatthar — a vantage point where we can witness Everest from the closest possible distance — and a visit to Tengboche Monastery, a large and sacred monastery in the Khumbu region.

This trek is fully guided by experienced local guides and ensures proper acclimatization before gaining altitude. This is the best way for non-elite trekkers to get close to the highest mountain in the world!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.


  • 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. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.


  • 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.
