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 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.

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    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. 

  • How long is the trek to Everest Base Camp?

    The Everest Base Camp trek is a 129 km round trip that starts from and ends in Lukla, where most people fly in from Kathmandu. It takes most travelers between 11 and 14 days to complete this journey, with the average duration being 12 days, of which it takes around 8 days to trek from Lukla to the base camp. The return journey, which normally takes 4 days, is downhill. Another option is the 10-day trek to Everest Base Camp. You can either return on a helicopter from Gorakshep to Lukla. Or you can follow the same itinerary as the 12-day trek and skip the two acclimatization days. This is the riskier option.

    We also recommend adding buffer periods of a day or two before and after your trek. You may need a couple of days in Kathmandu to shop for trekking gear, battle jet-lag or meet up with the tour guide to discuss the trek. The buffer period at the end of the trek is recommended because there is always a good chance of Lukla flights getting delayed due to bad weather. This means that your entire trip duration will be between 14 to 16 days. Check out our guide on how long the Everest Base Camp treks to find out more.
