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.

Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

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.

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.
