During the booking process, please be aware that it will lead you to the payment page. You have two payment options: pay a 20% deposit to confirm your trip or pay the full amount upfront.

If you opt for the deposit, the remaining 80% is payable in cash (in USD or widely accepted currencies like AUD, CAD, EURO, GBP, SGD, etc.) when you arrive in Kathmandu.

If you would like to make a bank transfer, please let us know and we will provide you with our bank details.

If you encounter any problems while booking your trip, please get in touch and we will be happy to offer alternative options to make the booking and payment process easier for you.

Booking Your International Flight:

For our 14-day EBC tour, you should plan to arrive in Kathmandu on Day 1 and depart on Day 14.

It’s advisable, especially for travelers from western countries, to arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier to acclimate to the time difference and recover from jet lag.

Additionally, it’s recommended to allocate a few extra buffer days after the trek.

Lukla flights can be canceled due to adverse weather, so having some extra days can prevent any issues with your return ticket.

Packing for the EBC Trek

Packing for the EBC trek can vary from person to person.

To assist you, we’ve compiled the ultimate packing list for EBC as a helpful guideline. Be sure to review it carefully and pack accordingly based on the season of your trek and your personal preferences.

Arrival Information

Once you’ve booked your flight ticket, please share the details with us.

If you’re arriving earlier, we can arrange accommodation at the same hotel for an additional cost and provide airport pickup.

Our office staff will be waiting for you at Tribhuvan International Airport, holding a sign with “Mosaic Adventure” as you exit the airport terminal.

Flight to Lukla and Return

During the peak season, typically from mid-March to mid-May in spring and late September to late November in autumn, flights to Lukla and back operate from Ramechap airport.

At other times of the year, they depart from Kathmandu.

Don’t worry about transfers; we’ll arrange the approximately 4-hour drive from Kathmandu to Ramechap at no additional cost.

Trek Starting and Ending Days

The actual trekking days are from Day 2 to Day 12. You’ll fly to Lukla on Day 2 to commence the trek and return to Lukla on Day 12. On Day 13, you’ll fly back to Kathmandu and be transferred to your hotel.

For example, if you’ve booked the tour from January 5th to January 18th, 2025, you’ll fly to Lukla on January 6th, 2025 and return to Kathmandu on January 17th, 2025.

Standard Trekking Day

Expect to spend 11 nights and 12 days completing the EBC trek.

You’ll trek from Lukla to Everest Base Camp and back, with overnight stays in villages like Phakding, Namche, Tyangboche, Dingboche, Lobuche, Gorakshep, Pheriche, and Lukla.

Each day’s trek will begin around 7:30 AM and conclude in the late afternoon, with frequent breaks to catch your breath.

You’ll have numerous photo opportunities along the way and enjoy breakfast and dinner at the same place, while lunch is en route.

Our team will provide regular briefings about timing and stops.

Accommodation

In Kathmandu, you’ll stay in 3-star hotels with twin/double sharing beds.

During the trek, your accommodation options are teahouses. Although basic, these EBC teahouses are clean and provide a comfortable place for a good night’s rest.

Food

In Kathmandu, your package includes breakfast, typically served buffet-style except on the day of your Lukla flight, when you’ll receive a packed breakfast.

During the trek, you can choose from a menu offering local and international meals.

After a long day of trekking, you’ll appreciate the hearty meals.

It’s important to stick to vegetarian food from your arrival in Kathmandu until the end of your trek, as proper toilet facilities are not available everywhere along the trail.

Baggage and Weight Limit

On your flight to Lukla, the total baggage weight allowance is 15 kilos (33 pounds), combining both checked and carry-on baggage.

Ensure you pack approximately 10/11 kilos in your checked bag and 5/4 kilos in your carry-on to stay within the 15-kilo limit.

If you have items you don’t need on the trek, you can leave them at the Kathmandu hotel for storage at no cost.

Remember to take a photo of your bag-tag and keep it for easy identification in case the original tag is lost.

Drinking Water on the Trek

Bottled water is available along the trail, but we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottles and treat tap water to reduce single-use plastic bottle waste.

Be sure to bring water treatment pills and flavorings to enhance the taste.

Staying hydrated is essential, so aim to drink more than 4 liters of water daily while trekking.

Electricity, Charging and Wi-Fi

Please keep in mind that you’re embarking on a trek to EBC, not exploring urban areas.

While some facilities like charging and Wi-Fi are available at an extra cost, they are not guaranteed.

We recommend against planning to work or conduct online meetings during the trek, allowing you to fully enjoy the mountain experience.

Money for Extras and Tipping

You should have Nepali rupees for expenses such as tea, coffee, bottled drinks and Wi-Fi.

Plan to carry about 150 to 200 USD equivalent Nepali rupees. Additionally, set aside 200-250 USD for tipping your guide and porter. The amount can vary based on the level of service provided by the field staff members.

Temperature during the trek

During the Everest Base Camp trek, while journeying from Lukla to Everest Base Camp, temperatures vary according to altitude and the places you hike to. Below, we have compiled the minimum temperatures you can anticipate on this trek for each of the 12 months. These temperatures are tentative and may vary slightly, being either higher or lower. You should expect the below temperatures for the last two nights/days while staying in Lobuche and Gorakshep.

February: Minimum around -30°C (-22°F), Maximum around -15°C (5°F)
March: Minimum around -20°C (-4°F), Maximum around -10°C (14°F)
April: Minimum around -7°C (19°F), Maximum around 4°C (39°F)
May: Minimum around -5°C (23°F), Maximum around 8°C (46°F)

Joining as a solo traveler

If you’re gearing up for our 14-day Everest Base Camp trek, we’re excited to have you on board!

Our trips are designed for solo adventurers, small groups and couples, creating a friendly vibe throughout the journey. During the trek, solo travelers will room with someone of the same gender, making it a shared experience and a chance to connect with fellow trekkers.

If you’re looking for more alone time, you can choose a single supplement in Kathmandu, getting your own room for two nights—one before and one after the trek—for an extra USD 90.

Just keep in mind, due to limited space and the communal feel of teahouses during the trek, solo trekkers will share rooms with fellow travelers. Unfortunately, there’s no single supplement available during the trek itself, even if you’re willing to pay more.

But don’t worry, the shared experience in the teahouses adds a special charm to the journey, creating a sense of community among like-minded adventurers.

Get ready for an amazing adventure!

Extensions of Your Stay

If you wish to explore Kathmandu further, consider booking our Kathmandu Heritage Day Tour.

Alternatively, you can opt for a pre-EBC acclimatization trek to Poon Hill or other side trips around Kathmandu.

Feel free to contact us to discuss these options after booking your Everest Base Camp Trek.

Everest Base Camp Trek Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Will you pick me up from the airport?

Yes, we arrange for pick up from Tribhuvan International Airport as per your flight time. Once you book the tour, one of our tour coordinators will reach out and request this information.

When is the best time to do the Everest Base Camp trek, and can I trek during off-trekking seasons?

Sir Ranulph Fiennes once said, “There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” With that in mind, the autumn (mid-September to early December) and spring (March till mid-June) seasons are considered the best time to trek Everest Base Camp and any other treks in Nepal. These seasons offer mild temperatures, good weather, clear mountain views, and a crisp surrounding that attracts many trekkers.

However, if you cannot trek during these seasons, you can still join the trek during off-seasons. Summer/monsoon (mid-June onward till mid-September) and winter (mid-December to the end of February) are the off-trekking seasons. These months may have more hostile weather and lower temperatures than during peak months.

If you are planning to trek during winter, you must be prepared to face the cold, with temperatures dropping to minus degrees; about minus 20 or even below that. If you plan to trek during summer, you must be equipped with proper rain gear.

What is the total cost of the Everest Base Camp trek?

Total cost of Everest Base Camp trek is USD 1445 per person. This amount covers the cost of your food, accommodation, the guide and porter charges, permit costs, transportation costs, flights, etc. To learn more about the cost, please click on the “Inclusion/Exclusion” tab.

Is the price of the Everest Base Camp Trek different for Indian Nationals?

Everest Base Camp trip cost is a flat USD 1445 per person for all nationalities, including Indians. We do not compromise on services based on nationality and ensure that everyone receives equal treatment.

Please note that our online payment gateway might not support some cards issued by Indian banks. Please get in touch with us and we will provide an alternative option for payment.

What permits do I need for the Everest Base Camp trek?

Trekking to Everest Base Camp means walking inside the Sagarmatha National Park in the Khumbu region. Therefore, to walk through the region, you need to obtain two different permits currently. They are the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit (USD 20 per person) and the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit (USD 30 per person).

When you book one of our EBC tours, these permits are included and arranged by us, so you do not have to worry about them.

How fit do I need to be for the Everest Base Camp trek?

The Everest Base Camp trek is considered a relatively strenuous trekking route in Nepal. However, it does not require any previous trekking or mountaineering experience.

You are attempting to reach the base camp, not the summit itself, so technical experience is not required. You only need to be in good physical condition and able to walk for four to six hours per day over hilly terrain with a light backpack.

If you are not an experienced trekker or do not exercise regularly, we recommend embarking on a training program for EBC well in advance of commencing this trip. You will have plenty of time to rest throughout the trek, and the pace will be slow to help you acclimatize safely to the increasing elevation.

What is the level of accommodation like?

In Kathmandu, your accommodation will usually include an attached bathroom and facilities such as air conditioning, reception, and dining services. The level of accommodation is Nepalese 3-star and is comfortable and clean. If you require an upgrade of accommodation in Kathmandu, there are many 4-star and 5-star options available at an extra cost. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require an upgrade.

Once you start your trek, you will be staying in “Teahouses.” You will be sharing a twin room at these teahouses. The bed mattresses are usually firm and not sprung mattresses that you may be used to at home.

Everest Base Camp Trek accommodation is very basic, and there will usually be shared shower and toilet facilities. There is a communal dining hall in all teahouses offering limited meal choices. Although basic, the teahouses are clean and provide a welcoming, friendly, and warm resting place after a day of trekking.

Are there fixed itineraries for the Everest Base Camp trek?

We organize both fixed and customized tours. Fixed tours are operated on a group-joining basis, with dates available under the ‘Dates/Availability’ tab. We also operate tailor-made itineraries for the trek. For those trekkers wanting to do short and longer treks, we have different itineraries, such as 20-day EBC and Gokyo Lake trek, Everest Panorama trek, Everest Base Camp Trek with Helicopter trek and so on.

These are customizable itineraries that you can modify depending on your convenience. You can lengthen or reduce the number of trekking days from these itineraries. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in booking a customized trek to EBC.

What type of food can I expect on the Everest Base Camp trail?

You will find many tea houses on the trail that offer a wide variety of food and drinks. From typical Nepali dishes to continental dishes, you can find all types of food and drinks on the trekking trail to EBC. You can enjoy popular Nepali dish – Dal Bhat with seasoned vegetables and pickles. Additionally, you can enjoy pizza, momo, noodles, macaroni, sizzler, sandwich, burger, and more. You can also enjoy different types of coffee, fruit juice, and alcoholic drinks. However, since this is a high altitude trek, it’s important to maintain body hydration, so it’s a good idea to avoid alcoholic drinks.

Is enough drinking water available? How much water should we carry in our daypack?

We ask that all our customers bring water purification tablets and a water bottle with them. (They can be bought in Kathmandu if forgotten.) Mosaic Adventure supports responsible tourism, so we do not encourage trekkers to buy bottled water in the Himalayan region. Although it is available, there is no proper disposal system for plastic bottles, and we would like to keep our mountains clean and trash-free.

There will be plenty of water available along the way to fill your bottles, and most brands of purification tablets take just 30 minutes before you can drink your water. You can carry a water bottle of about 1.5 liters and fill it as you go; there’s no need to carry water for the whole day. We recommend that you drink a minimum of 3 to 4 liters of water per day while on your trek.

Can we take showers during the trek?

Showers are available at the teahouses, usually in shared bathrooms, especially as you go higher up. You will have to pay for a hot water shower per person. The higher you go, the colder it gets, and you may find that you do not want to shower as often. You can wait just a few days until your descent. If you do not want to take a shower, you can use wet wipes to clean your body. You may not find them during the trek, or if you find any, they may cost more. So it’s a good idea to buy them in Kathmandu.

Do I need to take walking poles?

Walking poles are not compulsory but can be useful, especially on the way down. Poles help you balance on the way down and take the strain off your legs (quad muscles) on some of the steep climbs. You can buy poles in Kathmandu, and they easily collapse, so you can attach them to your backpack when they are not needed.

Can I buy any equipment in Kathmandu before the start of the trip?

There are plenty of trekking shops in Kathmandu selling equipment inexpensively compared to the prices you would normally pay at home. However, the quality of these products cannot always be guaranteed.

If you do not want to take the risk, we recommend that you buy major items, such as trekking shoes, before you arrive in Nepal. It is also recommended that you buy your shoes well in advance of your trek so you can “break them in” and avoid blisters during your trip.

If you want to manage the trek cost, you can even rent some gear after paying a deposit amount.

Or, if you happen to forget some gear in Kathmandu, you can buy them at Namche Bazaar as well.

Can I recharge my iPod, batteries, cameras, etc. while on the tour?

Yes, you can recharge your electronic devices in the teahouses. Please remember that the plugs might be different than those at home, so don’t forget to bring adapters with you or buy them in Kathmandu before the trip. You will have to pay for the use of electricity to recharge your electrical items, usually at a cost of $3-5 US per hour.

How much money per day do you think I will need? What currency should I take?

The local currency in Nepal is Nepali Rupees. We recommend that you bring US dollars or other widely accepted currencies like Euros, GBP, etc. to Nepal and exchange them here as it is easily done and widely accepted. Make sure to exchange them to NPR before heading out on the trek as teahouses might not accept other currencies. Also, you will not find ATMs in places higher than Namche Bazaar on the trek. Even those available at Namche or Lukla might not work all the time. So it is wise to carry enough NPR cash on hand.

The amount of money you will need on a daily basis depends on your spending habits. A guide would be $15 per day for extra drinks and the bar bill during your trek and $20 per day to cover lunch/dinner while in Kathmandu.

What do I have to carry with me during this Everest base camp trek?

You will need to carry a reasonably sized daypack, big enough to carry personal items, water, camera, snacks, sunscreen, a hat, a fleece jacket, and gloves for higher altitudes.

For the trek to Everest Base Camp, the most important things you should carry in your daypack are personal items that you need for the day.

Do not forget to carefully go through packing list for Everest Base Camp Trek including enough snacks and a water bottle. Also, include lip balms, moisturizers, sanitizers, and sunscreen.

While you carry the light pack, your porters will carry the bigger packs with your clothes, etc. They will carry packs up to 20 kilos (10 kilos of each participant).

Please note that on a flight to Lukla, the weight limit is 15 kilos – 10 kilos for check-in and 5 kilos for carry-on, and the weight is combined. So your check-in and carry-on bag should not exceed 15 kilos in total. If you have any items that you don’t need on the trek, they can be stored in the hotel in Kathmandu without any additional cost.

What if I get sick while on trek?

It depends on the nature of the sickness. Usually, if you become sick, you will descend to a lower altitude with the help and support of the guide or porter. If you are seriously ill, we will arrange an emergency helicopter evacuation service. You should purchase travel insurance to cover such expenses.

Our guide will take immediate action according to the situation. Please make sure you arrange travel insurance that covers you for a medical evacuation service and trekking at high altitudes.

Do not take altitude sickness lightly. It can be fatal! Please familiarize yourself with the symptoms of altitude sickness before your trek. Do not ignore even the mildest of symptoms, and inform your guide immediately.

Our guides carry basic medicine and first aid equipment, including simple painkillers, altitude sickness tablets, bandages, balm for muscle ache, and medication to treat diarrhea and vomiting.

Our experienced guides will walk with you throughout the trek. If anything happens to you, they will take care of you. If, by any chance, you fall sick, there are health posts in Lukla, Namche Bazaar, and Pheriche where you can get medical services.

How do I know if I am suffering from altitude sickness?

As you ascend to higher altitudes, you may be prone to altitude sickness. Some common symptoms include sleeplessness, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, increased heart rate, and shortness of breath. If you experience any of these symptoms, it may be an indication of altitude sickness.

These are minor symptoms of altitude sickness. If you continue to ascend to higher altitudes despite experiencing these symptoms, you may experience more severe symptoms such as difficulty walking, severe headache, tightness in chest, frequent coughing and shortness of breath, confusion, and more.

Is travel insurance necessary for the Everest base camp trek?

A high-altitude trek like EBC definitely requires reliable travel insurance. The chances of unexpected accidents and altitude sickness are common during the trek. Sometimes, trekkers fall seriously ill and require immediate helicopter evacuation.

In such emergencies, the cost of evacuation can be quite expensive. Due to these reasons and to ensure the safety of you and your belongings, travel insurance is a must. When obtaining insurance, you should check if it covers you up to a height of 6000 meters.

Do I need to bring a sleeping bag for this trek?

You will spend your nights in tea houses where you will be provided with a room containing a bed, mattress, blanket, and pillow. However, the blanket provided may not be sufficient. To be on the safe side, it is a good idea to pack a proper sleeping bag.

Can I take this trek if I am new to trekking? What training do I need to prepare physically for this trek?

Yes, it is Everest Base Camp for beginners as well as experienced trekkers. Even a novice trekker can opt for this trek. To prepare yourself physically for the trek, you need to involve in physical fitness training a few months before the actual trek. Additionally, you must prepare yourself mentally as well because the trek is not going to be easy at high altitudes for many days.

To prepare yourself physically, you can do cardiovascular training like running, swimming, cycling, and so on. For strength and endurance training, you can do squats, lunges, aerobics, push-ups, sit-ups, and so on. Also, it’s recommended to do some short hikes frequently before the actual trek so that your body gets adjusted to walking on uneven terrain.

How safe is the trekking trail?

The Everest Base Camp trekking trail is considered one of the safest trekking trails in Nepal with minimal news of casualties and unforeseen incidents. There are hardly any reports of trekkers facing theft or unpleasant behavior by locals on the trekking trails.

Moreover, as the trails are well-marked, the chance of getting lost on the trails is also minimal. Therefore, except for some natural occurrences, the trails to Everest base camp are safe for all trekkers.

Do I need to hire a trekking staff for the trek?

If you book with us, the package will include staff (guide and porter). Although hiring a trekking staff or booking an organized tour for the Everest Base Camp trek is not mandatory, doing it individually without experienced staff is not recommended.

Can I do this trek alone?

Solo trekking to the Everest base camp is possible. However, it’s only recommended for experienced trekkers with prior experience of high-altitude trekking and other treks in Nepal. Otherwise, novice trekkers walking alone may encounter several unexpected problems.

Can I do a luxury trek to Everest base camp?

The Everest base camp trek is among the most popular treks in Nepal, and there are well-developed tea houses serving basic to higher-end facilities. So, a “luxury” stay is possible during the Everest base camp trek, but only up to Namche Bazaar.

On these treks, you will spend nights in high-quality teahouses with the finest services and food. The cost of luxury trekking may be high for the EBC trek, but the services you will enjoy there will make you forget the amount you’ve paid. Luxury lodges are available up until Namche Bazaar only, so beyond that, you have to go for basic teahouses.

Do I have to tip the guide and porters?

Tipping the guide and porter is expected and has become a custom to show gratitude to those who have helped you throughout the journey. You can give them a certain amount depending on your choice at the end of the trek.

How often does the Lukla flight get canceled?

The Lukla airport, which rests under the lap of Himalayas, experiences frequent weather changes every hour. Even a hint of bad weather can lead to flight delays in Lukla. Sometimes, when the weather worsens, the flight even gets canceled. So, it is good to be mentally ready to face such unforeseen situations and plan your return flight accordingly, keeping some buffer days.

Can I enter the monasteries I encounter on the Everest base camp trail?

You will encounter some Buddhist monasteries on the trekking trail, and they are open to all. However, the monasteries have certain opening and closing times. So, you can only enter those monasteries during the opening hours. Also, do not forget to take off your shoes before entering the monastery and ask your guide before deciding to enter.

In which season can I see rhododendrons and other wildflowers blooming on the Everest base camp trek?

The spring months (March, April, May) are the time for wildflowers and rhododendrons in Nepal, and it is the same in the Everest region.

If you plan your EBC trek in March, you will see the forest shining in flower buds. While in April and May, you will find flowers blooming everywhere on the trekking trail. The views of the forest shining in different colors under the glistening view of the chain of mountains will leave you in awe during the trek.

Can I meet the Everest expedition team during my EBC trek?

Not every season guarantees an encounter with the Everest expedition team. However, if you plan your trek during April and May, you have a chance to meet and interact with the team preparing to climb Mount Everest. The mountaineers typically spend months preparing for the summit, and you may find them doing so while on the trekking trail.

Additionally, you can meet the expedition team at Tyangboche monastery, where they collect their final blessing before starting their ascent.

Can I take pictures of people and monasteries while on the Everest Base Camp trek?

In many places, it is acceptable to take pictures of the locals, monasteries, chortens, and mani walls. However, some locals you encounter on the trail may not appreciate being photographed. Furthermore, taking photos inside some monasteries is prohibited. Therefore, it is a good idea to research on do’s and don’t in Nepal and ask locals or your guide for permission before taking any pictures.

Do I need ice axes and climbing gear for the Everest Base Camp trek?

Although the trek to Everest Base Camp is challenging due to the altitude and uneven terrain, there are no technically difficult sections that require special climbing gear, such as ice axes, harnesses, and crampons. Therefore, you do not need to bring such equipment.

However, if you trek during the winter months, we recommend packing micro spikes for your shoes and gaiters.

Can I access Wi-Fi services in the teahouses?

Almost all teahouses along the trekking trail offer internet connectivity, and telephone services are available, particularly at lower altitudes. However, these services are not free. You must pay a fee to use the Wi-Fi service.

In general, most teahouses charge USD 5 for Wi-Fi access. Telephone service charges vary depending on the teahouse and the duration of the service.

Nowadays, prepaid Wi-Fi cards are available at teahouses. You can purchase them at Namche and access internet on EBC as you climb higher.

What if I become too tired to walk back after reaching Everest Base Camp?

For trekkers who wish to trek to Base Camp and Kala Patthar but do not want to return on foot, we offer an Everest Base Camp helicopter trek package. During this tour, you will walk to Base Camp but return via a direct helicopter flight to Kathmandu. If you become too fatigued or bored to walk back along the same trail from Base Camp, you may choose helicopter fly-back Everest Base Camp trek.

Is there any way to reach Everest Base camp without trekking?

Many people love standing at the Everest Base Camp, which is 5364 meters high. But not everyone wants to undertake a trek that takes around two weeks. Alternatively, some may be physically unfit to join this long walk. For such travelers, there is an option of an Everest Base Camp helicopter tour. With this tour, you can fly over the Khumbu region and land at the base camp or Kala Patthar to catch the finest views of the Himalayan chain.

Can I take my children on the Everest base camp trek?

Yes, you can take your children on this trek to Everest Base Camp. But make sure they are above 12 years of age. Kids below 12 years of age find it difficult to cope with the increasing altitudes. Besides, it is difficult to detect the symptoms of altitude sickness in them as they may not be able to communicate properly or identify what is happening with them.

Trekking also requires physical strength. Therefore, before trekking with your kids, you must prepare them physically and mentally. Additionally, you must spend a few more rest days than the scheduled itinerary to help your kids adjust to the changing weather.

Alternatively, you can choose short treks like Everest View trek AKA Everest Panorama trek if you are trekking with your children.

Is Lukla flight the only way to start the trek? Can I choose not to take this flight?

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is an easy and convenient way to start the trek. However, this is not the only option for the trek.

Suppose you want to avoid this flight. In that case, you can take a jeep ride from Kathmandu to Salleri and start the trek from there. Or, you can take a bus ride from Kathmandu to Salleri and start the trek from there. These rides will add extra days to your trek but will take you to Lukla without taking the flight.

Is it recommended to get a Nepalese visa in advance or at the Airport?

Most countries’ people can obtain a visa on entry to Nepal. as of 2024, there are some countries where a visa will need to be obtained prior to traveling (you can find a list of these countries at www.immigration.gov.np).

If you want to avoid the sometimes lengthy queues at the airport, you can obtain a visa from the Nepali embassy in your home country before you travel. Please visit the appropriate websites in your country for details.

If you want to obtain a visa on arrival, you will need to fill in a landing card (most airlines provide these before landing in Kathmandu; if not, they will be available in the airport), pay a fee (cost differs depending on your length of stay), and provide a passport photo. Don’t forget to bring one in your hand luggage to present to the immigration officers.

Updated Visa fees for 2024 are as follows:

30 USD for 15 days.
50 USD for 30 days.
125 USD for 90 days.
(information from the Nepal Immigration Department)
We would advise you to bring US dollars to pay for your visa. Most major currencies are usually accepted. Although there is a currency exchange in the airport (if they will not accept your currency), you may not get the best exchange rate. Therefore, it is always a safe bet to bring US dollars.

Do your trekking guides bring a first aid kit on this trip to EBC?

Yes, they do. We carry a comprehensive first aid kit including medication for Everest Base Camp, and our guides are adequately trained to use it. All of our guides are fully trained, hold the required certification and license.

Where can I keep my extra luggage that I don't need while trekking?

Any luggage that you do not need to take with you on the Everest Base Camp trek can be kept securely in the hotel in Kathmandu or in the store room of our office.

  14. Winter Everest Base Camp Trek
    By Jessie Uehara February 25, 2024
    As two female travelers visiting Nepal, we were initially hesitant about choosing a local organization. However, my friend and I decided to book a trip to EBC and completed it in January 2024. From our arrival at the airport to the selection of our hotel in Kathmandu and the teahouses along the trail, everything was well planned. The arrangement, including the guide and porter, was excellent. We found the entire package to be very reasonably priced at just USD 1445 and every dollar was worth it. During the trek, I fell a little ill due to the altitude and cold temperatures. However, our guide Ramesh took excellent care of me and my friend. He frequently checked on our health conditions and well being, providing proper advice and ensuring our safety throughout the journey. With Ramesh's help, we successfully reached the base camp, realizing our dreams. We are thankful to Ramesh and the entire team for their outstanding hospitality and service.
