I had a fantastic time trekking to Everest base camp
“The team was fantastic to work with. My group and I considered ourselves extremely fortunate to be able to trek despite the Pandemic. The rhododendrons and nature along the trail, the people going about their business, and the beautiful weather were all sights to behold.It's all thanks to the trek advisors for ensuring that we arrived at our destination safely and without incident.”

Other Practical InformationRecommended trekking gear: During any trek in Nepal, you will experience a wide range of temperatures and weather conditions. The equipment you bring must function well in a wide variety of conditions. Your clothing should be lightweight, warm, dry quickly, and allow good freedom and movement. Please take the time to choose your clothing and equipment carefully, it may make the difference between a comfortable and successful trip and one which could have been more enjoyable. Clothing Lightweight hiking boots If you are using a new pair of boots you should work them in to avoid suffering from blisters. Spare laces are also good to bring. Pair of track shoes/sandals These are necessary at night to let your boots dry if they are wet, and also to allow your feet to breathe. Sandals are great for wearing in the camps and towns. Warm jacket A fiberfill or down jacket is easy to pack and keeps the body warm during cold days and nights at high elevation. Rain jacket/Poncho A guaranteed waterproof, hooded jacket is essential. Heavyweight and lightweight trousers Heavyweight trousers are useful in the morning and at night when you are high up in the mountains. Having an extra pair of light trousers can be handy. Also, rain trousers are practical. Loosefitting, long shorts/skirts A couple of pairs of these are easy to pack and comfortable to wear. •Lightweight, long sleeve and short sleeve shirts A long sleeve shirt is suitable for protection against the sun while trekking. Wool hat and gloves During the winter season these are a definite necessity for cold mornings and nights. Thin and thick woolen socks A couple of pairs of each will suit you for all conditions. Underwear: A normal quantity. Also, swimming wear is useful. Thermal underwear: These are optional but ideal to sleep in during the night. In the winter season, they are highly recommended. Accessories and equipment Backpack/duffle bag: You will need a bag with good back support and space to carry all of your trekking gear. A rain cover for your bag is very useful to have. Small backpack/bag You can use this to carry all of your personal equipment and daily needs. Sunglasses/snow glasses: These are great not only for protecting your eyes from the sun and snow, but also from wind and dusty trails. Plastic bags 24 large plastic bags are great for separating dirty or wet clothing. 810 small bags can be used to dispose of garbage. Toiletries Toilet paper and Kleenex can be hard to find as you get high up into the mountains. You can also bring hankies. Small headlamp/torch Spare batteries and bulbs are necessary as well as lighters and candles. Other useful accessories: First Aid kit, trekking map, pocket knife, binoculars, reading materials, games (cards etc;), notebook, pen and pencils etc; FAQs: Q: I have never done trekking before. Is this trek suitable for me? A: As long as you are reasonably fit, mentally prepared, and can walk for 6-7-hours a day then you should be able to successfully complete this trekking. Q: How long do we walk each day? A: The approximate duration of each day is specified in the program. On the rest days, you have the option to hike around the village or hike to optional places, or you can take a full rest during that day. Q: Are there charging possibilities for mobile phones, cameras and other electronic equipment available? A: The teahouses have charging possibilities via their solar panels. Please note, if it has been cloudy for a period of time, backup batteries might run out of power. The guesthouses usually charge between 300-500 rupees per hour.

One liter bottle of water cost start around 70 rupees and at base camp cost well over 300 (around $3). A budget solution to this is to use a water treatment solutions or use water purifier tablets. Some purification tabs and drops make the water taste weird. Please be aware of that too.

It's advisable that the child is reasonable and able to understand and follow instructions immediately. Your child should be mature enough to recognize altitude sickness symptoms.
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.
