“I had the amazing privilege to embark on the 12 day trek to EBC. I had no expectations going in, and was actually doing a high-altitude trek for the first time in my life. From day 1 it was such an incredible experience. Unique Adventure picked me up from the airport, and seemlessly arranged everything. My guide, Dasonam Sherpa (amazing, highly recommend, 10/10, great man) was professional, respectful, patient, and one of the kindest people I've ever met. We got along perfectly, and the trip wouldn't have been as great without him. We saw so many beautiful landscapes, met people from all over the world, and experienced an amazing culture unlike any I've seen. Though some aspects of the trek were difficult, it was the most magical trip I've ever been on and highly recommend to anyone.”
Amazing trip start to finish

“We did the 12 day trek in October 2019. Our guide Nuri was an absolute star - great fun and very knowledgeable. The trek itself was tough in places but overall very manageable for a healthy adult. Absolutely beautiful scenery throughout the trek.

Some tips:
The teahouses were mostly comfortable (though very cold at night as you get higher up!) and the food options were varied and usually tasty. Dal baht highly recommended for all! Hot showers are available at all the teahouses for a price. In the bigger villages charging can be done at the bakeries and bars in exchange for a purchase. For anyone wondering, as we were, whether they should take Diamox prior to the trip, we were recommended not to and were overall fine, apart from the odd headache.

A big thanks to Nuri Sherpa for an amazing time. Enjoy!!”
great trip and wonderful leadership

“Our guide for this trip was Raju Mainali. He and Chris Chhetri worked diligently to make sure our trip was fun and safe and adapted to each of our team's specific needs. Raju really knew the mountains and the trails, as well as the tea houses, and made sure they were the best. He was pleasant and helpful throughout and very encouraging even though the trek itself was challenging. I recommend him completely.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • What does airport pick up and drop-off mean? For example, if I arrive in Kathmandu the night before, can I be driven to my hotel, then driven back to the airport the day after?

    Airport pick-up is a transfer from the airport to your hotel on the day of your arrival. Airport drop-off is a transfer from your hotel to the airport on the day of your departure. This tour also includes transfer services to the airport for the domestic flight as well.

  • 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?

    Yes. The baggage weight allowance on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is 10 kg for checked baggage plus 5kg for hand baggage for a total of 15 kg. Bags overweight will be charged approximately USD 1 per kg over the limit.

     

  • 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.
