Perfect EBC Trek 2021
“No wonder why the company is very popular for Everest Base Camp Trek. After reading several reviews we decided to book with Himalayan Leisure for our trek to Everest Base Camp in October 2021. Our decision was perfect.The owner Upendra is very attentive and responsive. He is a 24 hour human being. Our WhatsApp messages were always replied within couple of hours and emails were responded within few hours. We sent lots of lots of queries and they were answers without any delays.Our guide Bibek was very knowledgable about the trekking areas. In fact, he was also from a nearby village from Lukla. He was very attentive and professional. I must say that we had fantastic trek to Everest Base Camp with Himalayan Leisure. A perfect holiday arranged by the company.”

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 does it cost to hire a porter on this trek?

    The additional price of hiring a porter on this trek is currently USD 216 per porter, but this price may change.

  • Is there an alternative itinerary if adverse weather conditions occur?

    If the tour cannot be conducted due to weather conditions, you can communicate with the tour operator and ask them to organize an alternative tour for you, if possible. If you are unable to participate in the tour due to such circumstances, we will keep the paid monies on file as a future travel credit which can be used to book the same tour for an alternative date or a different tour operated by the same tour operator.

     

  • What is the policy should I not be able to travel due to covid restrictions?

    The cancellation policy of this tour offers free cancellation up to 60 days prior to departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable. However, if the tour is canceled or suspended due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, we can offer you an equivalent travel credit or you can select the alternative start date of your travel during cancellation.

     

  • 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.
