For more details about this tour, please go through the itinerary below.
Unfortunately ABC route has been closed due to avalanche just before the two days of our journey. Agency owner Mr. Ganesh promptly informs us and suggested some alternatives with pros and cons. We just relied on him to do on behalf of us and requested to take the chance till last point. He redesigned accordingly and suggested optimum solution which also capable to reroute to ABC if we become fortunate again. We went till Chomrong via Poonhill-Ghorepani and observed the similar situation stated by him earlier.
The most entertaining thing was selection of accommodations which was excellent choice in terms of scenic position & comfort ability to roam around in leisure time though sometimes we have to slightly compromise the lodging facilities. The guide & porters were with us like presidential guards to facilitate till whenever we went to sleep. Their positive attitude always inspired us to overcome all challenging situation during trekking.

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?
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.
