The best part of the trek is that it involves much more than only enjoying the panoramic views of the almighty Mount Everest.

These include Mount Cho Oyu, Mount Makalu, Mount Lhotse, and Mount Everest. What would be better than retracing the footsteps of the worldwide renowned Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay while following the classic Everest Base Camp Trek and following other pioneers while moving towards the Base Camp from Lukla region.

Do not forget to grab the opportunity to ascend the famous Kala Patthar at the height of about 5,500meters to witness many awe-inspiring views of the famous Mount Everest.

Trip Note

From Kathmandu - Lukla - Kathmandu flight may be delayed by few hours or even canceled due to bad weather condition. So, you should be prepared for such flight delays or cancellations. But we will do our best to avoid such conditions. In case of flight cancellation, we will try to get you on the flight for the next day. Getting an early flight for the next day may not be possible during the high season so, we can arrange a flight by helicopter as well but it will be an extra cost. If we have a group of 4- 5 people, we can charter a helicopter from Kathmandu – Lukla.  It will be advisable to have extra days in Kathmandu before and after the trekking. We can arrange your cultural / adventure tours (such as sightseeing tours, rafting, jungle safari, with extra cost if the extra days are not used for the flight conditions to Lukla and back.

Accommodation

All the accommodation as per the itinerary is included in the package cost. Halesi Treks have chosen the 2/5 star hotel in the cities for your comfort and safety. The hotels can be upgraded to more deluxe ones upon your request. While trekking in the Mountain, our guides will choose the best available lodge of the village from their past experience. As some villages have limited number of lodges, in a peak season like in Spring and Autumn. Comfortable two men tent with mattress and four seasons sleeping bag will be provided for the camping trek. Our crew will try to set the camp in a scenic place. All the hotel and camping accommodations are as per twin sharing basis unless you are of a different gender.

Meals

Nepal is such an easy place to get several vegetarian options so no worries if you are a vegetarian or non-vegetarian. You can enjoy typical Nepali food as well as continental, Italian, Indian and Tibetan. Freshly cooked and hygienic dinner and breakfast are served at the camp and lunch will be served on the way to the next destination which will be prepared by our own chef. Only breakfast is served in Kathmandu whilst farewell dinner on the eve of your international departure is served from our side. All the meals (B/L/D) are on full board basis during the trek.

Trekking Crew

An experienced and licensed Guide and necessary porters will assist you during the trek. In a group with more than 8 clients, 2 guides will be provided for the betterment in service. In a teahouse trek, generally, one porter is provided for every two clients who carry between 15 to 18 kg. However, on a camping journey, more porters are required. All the camping types of equipment such as kitchen, dining, dome and toilet tents, kitchen equipment, fuel, and all consumable goods have to be carried from Kathmandu which needs more manpower. All of our guides and porters are fully insured so you don't' have to worry about them in case of emergency. Our team believes that our customer care is the first priority.

Physical Fitness and Experience

Everest Base camp Trek is an easy trek which is fit for those who has the ability to walk 4-7 hours of walking uphill and downhill in a day carrying the personal day pack. Some days are longer with 7- 9 hours of walking as well. Everest Base camp trek is low altitude trek which demands less physical, however having strong determination, positive vibe and average physical fitness can complete this trek. Doing some physical exercise a few weeks prior to the trip is better but technical skill is not required for this trek. If you are taking medicine for heart, lung or blood diseases, please kindly consult your doctor and inform to Halesi Treks.

Travel Insurance

This is a real adventure in high altitude so obtaining a travel insurance is always a good idea for your safety and is highly recommended too. Your travel insurance policy should cover helicopter evacuation and medical expenses in an emergency. There is not any Nepalese insurance company to sell travel insurance policy so you better buy a good one from home. There are some insurance policies which covers only in low altitude below 4000 mt. and some only in high altitude above 4000 mt. So before you purchase it, please double-check the policy what it covers and where are you going.

Best Seasons

Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) are the best months for Everest Base Camp Trek. Where normally days are sunny, the temperature is perfect, the sky is clear and Mountain remains crystal. This trek can be done in Monsoon (June to August ) but you should not expect the great weather and Mountain view.  You can do it in Winter (December to February) if you are used to with extreme cold temperature.

    Trekking to EBC with the team from Halesi Trek makes me feel comfortable and safe. The Guide, Niru Kumar , has good English. So it makes easier for everything. His patient and arrangement to give me an assistant guide for accompanying me while I walked slowly make him proper to become the best guide.

    A mate and I did the EBC Trek from mid-March and were blown away by both the views on offer and the team at Halesi Treks. Man Kumar fielded a plethora of queries and concerns long before our departure and attended to every question under the sun. A warm welcome at the airport proceeded to the intro

    Great organisation and support from Man Kumar and his team! They will do everything do make your tailor made trip to and around Nepal possible. They are really flexible, the groups are small (for us it was just my dad and me!) and you don’t need to worry about anything. Thanks to Man and Tek we had such a memorable and great three weeks in Nepal. Thank you again!
