Enjoy the grandest journey in the land of the Himalayas with our 16-day, guided trek to Mount Everest Base Camp. Your adventure to the base camp begins with a rather scary flight to the mountain airstrip of Lukla, at 2,800m elevation, and passes through the picturesque Sherpa village of Namche Bazaar to reach Gorakshep.

The high point of this journey is the ascent of Kala Patthar (5,500m) from where you can soak up stupendous views of Mount Everest and its surrounding peaks. You will spend most of the trek above the elevation of 3,000 meters in Khumbu and Imja valleys, whose skyline is dominated by the massive peaks of the Eastern Himalayas.

Along the way, you will get the chance to enjoy the culture of the Sherpa people, see ancient monasteries and learn how Lamaistic Buddhism influences the Sherpa life. Beautiful, multi-coloured prayer flags and prayer wheels along with intricately carved mani stones line every hilltop along the route.

Travellers who are physically fit and have a sound health can book this adventure. Some experience in high-altitude treks is preferred. For more experienced hikers who wish to take up the challenge, we suggest an Everest Base Camp and Gokyo Lakes trek.

GOOD TO KNOW

Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.

Other Practical InformationNOTICE ON DOMESTIC FLIGHT Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu flights scheduled from April to June 2019 are subject to possible re-routing to/from Ramechhap Airport due to the anticipated runway maintenance time in Kathmandu airport scheduled between 22:00 pm to 08:00 am. In the case of re-routing, we will drive to Ramechhap in the early morning at around 3:00 am and then take a flight to Lukla at around 8:00 am. Alternatively, helicopter arrangements can be made on 5 people sharing basis with the addition of USD 500 per person for a one-way flight. Please note that although we will try to coordinate and form groups at the airport for this arrangement, we cannot guarantee it. The drive to Ramechhap and flight to Lukla is almost always guaranteed unless the flight is canceled due to bad weather conditions. Travelers are suggested to advise us on the preferred alternatives for the flights to/from Lukla affected due to possible delays or disruptions.
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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • 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 does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking.
