HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to the base of the world’s highest peak, Mount Everest
  • Hike through traditional Sherpa villages & learn more about their Buddhist culture
  • Visit old hermitages and ancient monasteries
  • Enjoy panoramic views of the Himalayas
This 14-day, guided Everest Base Camp trek takes you to where Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay stood before their famous ascent of the world’s tallest mountain, Mount Everest (8,848m). This trip is your opportunity to see some of the highest mountains in the world and hike through the Unesco-listed Sagarmatha National Park. Along the trail, you will be amazed by the up-close views of snow-capped peaks. Four of the tallest mountains in the world are in this region, and the sheer size of these mountains makes you feel small and insignificant.

In addition to mountains, this trip also acts as a portal into the lives and culture of the people who live in this part of the world. Since Tengboche Monastery is part of your itinerary, you will also get the chance to learn more about Tibetan Buddhism.

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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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.
