Experience a trek to Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world at 8848 m above sea level. This trek follows in the footsteps of Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Edmund Hillary, and you will pass numerous Sherpa valleys before you reach Everest Base Camp. The trail winds its way through Sagarmatha National Park, home to several 8000-meter peaks. The tiny airstrip of Lukla is the gateway of the trek Through Pass outstanding Sherpa valleys and the bustling towns of the Sherpa people, Namche Bazaar and Khumjung.

The trail is dominated by the rhododendron forest and some of the Himalayan fauna can be seen. The monasteries, Chhortens, and mani walls are common scenery along the trail of Everest base camp. The glacial moraine trail at the upper part makes the journey an adventurous one.

Enjoy the views of the magnificent Himalayas. The historical Tengboche monastery offers fascinating information on Buddhism practices and their religious significance in this part of the world. Everest Base Camp Trek is undoubtedly the best trek in the Himalayas with its natural, historical, cultural, and geological significance. Trekking enthusiasts find the alpine setting blissful and spiritually solacing.

Acclimatization comes as a part of the Everest base camp trek to avoid altitude sickness. Mount Everest is the tallest mountain on planet earth, it scales 8848 m above sea level. Mountaineering is one of the extreme adventures, climbing mount Everest needs very high immunity and stamina. The above picture shows mount Everest on the left and the Nuptse ridge on the right.

This picture is taken from Kala Patthar in 2017. Trekking in Sagarmatha national park needs permissions from the government, we will arrange these permits before your arrival. You can stay in Kathmandu for a couple of days doing sightseeing or we can fly straight to Lukla. Here is a brief day-to-day typical itinerary that I suggest to my guests. The best seasons for the Everest base camp trek are March to May and September to November.

Tour's Location

Kathmandu Nepal

The weather forecast says rain/clouds/snow in Lukla on our Flight Day. Are we in for a rough flight?
When you are up in the Himalayas in Nepal, we would suggest you be ready for anything. Weather forecasts for Lukla are never correct and different sources will give you different information. If it is a really bad day in terms of weather, the airlines will themselves cancel the flight and you might have to wait till the weather clears. Yes, flying at a high altitude is never easy. Even on a clear sunny day, the plane might face turbulence because of the wind blowing from the Himalayas. But overall the flight to Lukla is very exciting and it’s an experience that you will never forget.
What type of shape do I need to be in, is this trip for me?
This trip is suitable for average people who are moderately fit, thus no previous experience is required. Some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking, and biking are recommended before you embark on your journey. The best preparation for this trek is bushwalking involving relatively steep ascents and descents. If you can manage a couple of valley floors to ridgeline ascents per comfortable and able to enjoy the trek to the fullest. They are physically strong, sharp-witted, and have an incredibly positive attitude towards a life that we would consider extremely tough. There is something about a trek in the Himalayas that draws you back time and time again. For keen walkers, it is a paradise and even avowed non-walkers find that one foot just seems to follow the other, drawn by the appeal of what lies beyond.
Will somebody come to pick me up at the airport open my arrival?
Yes, our airport representative will be there to greet you at the airport. S/he will be displaying the Mount Adventure Holidays signboard outside the airport terminal. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to your hotel in our tourist vehicle.
Can I obtain the visa for Nepal upon on arrival at the airport?
YES, you can obtain the visa easily upon your arrival at Tribhuwan International Airport in Kathmandu (Tourist Visa with Multiple Entries for 15 days can be obtained by paying USD 30 or equivalent foreign currency. Similarly, Tourist Visa with Multiple Entries for 30 days and 90 days can be obtained by paying USD 50 and 125 respectively. Please bring 2 copies of passport-size photos.
Do I need any extra document?
Please bring a copy of your travel insurance, a copy of your passport, and 3 photos (passport size) with you for your trip to Nepal. You would need photos for permits.
What sort of accommodation can I expect in Kathmandu in Trekking?
We use standard rooms at three-star hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, tea houses/lodges generally provide basic clean facilities with a mattress and a quilt or blanket. We can also offer you, Ace the Himalaya sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping equipment. The lodges in trekking routes usually provide single and double rooms, or occasionally a dormitory-style. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In tea houses, food will be prepared in the kitchen, which you should not enter without permission. The toilet in teahouses provides essential and basic facilities and is always outside the room.
What are the toilet facilities in the tea house /Lodge ?
Most of the tea houses do have western-style flushing toilets however in higher elevation you could find the squat toilets made of either a ceramic basin on the ground or a few planks precariously positioned over a hole in the ground which is always outside of the room.
If so how much extra will this cost?
During the trek, we will try our best but normally the lodges have twin sharing and dormitory styled rooms instead of a single room. The lodges will provide a private room for one person when the room is free and additional cost is not required. In Kathmandu, USD 45 Per Room per Night would be added as a single supplement fee. The single supplements are always guaranteed in Kathmandu but not in the mountain, especially during peak time.
Do you use yaks/porters on the trek or do we carry all of our own gear?
Whilst on the trek, our porter will take care of your luggage. All you need to carry is your small day bag for your personal belongings like a camera, water bottle, sun cream, etc.
Will there be a place to store items/clothing not required for the trek?
The hotel in Kathmandu does provide free storage services. So you can leave all your items that are not required for the trekking at your hotel.
Do I need to tip my guide and porters? How much would that be?
This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 20 to USD 1000 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you spend a minimum of 10% of your total trip cost for tipping the entire local staff, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek.
All your departure is guaranteed to run?
YES, all our trips are guaranteed to run. We never cancel the trip due to not having enough participants; we can arrange the trip for one person as well as a private trip at very minimal additional cost. Please inquire about this during the time of booking.
