Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.Other Practical InformationThere are three styles of accommodations during Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge trekking. We will be accommodated in Yatri Suites & Spa or Hotel Moonlight or similar in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at Yeti Mountain Home (luxury lodge) for five nights and six nights will be spent in the best available local lodges. Unlike the hotel in Kathmandu and the luxury lodges, the local lodges have shared washing and toilet facilities. All accommodations for Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge trek are on a twinshared basis. A single room is also available by paying an additional amount of USD 1,390. However, a single room is only possible in Kathmandu and the luxury lodges in the mountains. It might not always be feasible at local lodges.
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.
- Are there bag weight restrictions for the small aircraft flight from Kathmandu to Lukla?
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.
