Nepal is a fantastic trekking country and this trek proves that. Get insights into the lives and culture of the Sherpa people along with trekking their trails. See the sunrise from the view point of Kala Pattar at an altitude of 5,500 meters. Visit the infamous Everest Base Camp and watch climbers preparing their ascent of the world's highest mountain at 8,850 meters.
This trek is for trekkers who like altitude and who are looking to push themselves. It is a rather tough trek so you should be reasonably fit. If in doubt, we recommend adding a porter who can carry up to 30 kgs and can be shared between 2 people. Our ascent will be steady and well-paced to suit the acclimatisation needed, ensuring that we reach Everest Base Camp safely.
We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trek!
Choosing to go in winter was a big decision for two Queenslanders but I would recommend the off season to everyone! The tracks were empty, the teahouses had plenty of room and the snow makes the hot chocolates taste even better ;)
GET A PORTER. Not only does it help the Nepalese economy it also ensures you don't have that extra challenge when fighting the altitude and you actually enjoy the journey each day rather than trying to hurry to the destination. We are both very fit young girls so carrying the bags would have been fine but we really think we enjoyed the trip a lot more than those who choose to not hire a porter. Yes it's expensive but this is a once in a lifetime trip so ensure you do it all right!”

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.
In the excluded section, “meals and drinks while trekking” is listed. Does this mean water on the trails and food/snacks while hiking and regular meals?
Yes, this is correct. For this tour, meals, drinks, and snacks need to be paid for by yourself while on the trek. For any EBC trek, you need to arrange your own water. It would be a good idea to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw. You can easily find these in Thamel, Kathmandu. Bottled drinking water costs 2 USD per bottle in the EBC region.
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.
