“Himalayas, have always been a fascinating destination and Nepal, the kingdom of mountains have been attracting adventure seekers since ages. I personally am a big admirer myself of these snow clad peaks and whenever I get a chance I vist my first choice is mountains.
Nepal has always been a land of fascination for me, a place where one can be so close to Lord Shiva; The Pashupati Nath Temple in Kathmandu is one of the biggest pilgrimage center for Shaivites and also Nepal is one of the two gateways to Kailash and Manasarovar pilgrimage.
Its always an adventure going in to deep areas and heights on Himalayas. Though I love taking risks but its always advisable to take help of the locals while visiting Nepal Himalayas. Last time when I was in Nepal to go closer to Mt Everest, I took the Everest Base Camp trek.
So as advised by my friends and others who have been to this trek earlier, I decided to visit the offices of Master Himalaya Treks and Expeditions Pvt Ltd. in Kathmandu. I was very happy and satisfied when I met the people at Master Himalaya they seemed like thorough professionals. Master Himalaya is well known for organising and handling treks and trips in the most professional and dedicated way.
It is a well established company in tourism industry of Nepal and is owned by experienced personals of Nepal tourism. The have an clear idea of the dos and donts in the mountains. They are a team of professional trekking guides, tour guides, mountain leaders who provide the best services. They are registered and licensed as per govt. of Nepal and are registered as member of TAAN, PATA, and NATA etc. They deal in various services like Trekking, Hikings, Peak climbings, Cultural tours, River rafting, jungle safari, domestic and international ticketing, hotel reservation, visa services and many more for the destination Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan.
Master Himalaya takes care of all the arrangements needed to have a wonderful experience and take back memories that will last for the lifelong.
And finally when I took the trek package and reached the base camp, it was more than satisfaction and happiness. I felt like as if I have already climbed the Everest. The guides and porters were extremely helpful and experienced.
Personally I would rate Master Himalaya as one of the best companies in Nepal, and feel that for a person visiting Nepal, Master Himalaya is a must.”

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.

  • 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.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.
