Overview

Every traveler has as an aspiration to have a glimpse of Everest. Many have a dream to summit it and many wants to visit base camp too. Here, Global Holidays Adventure has been wisely designing itinerary ensuring proper acclimatization considering the health and safety of the travelers in order to fulfill their dream.


Everest Base Camp Trek Route

Kathmandu valley is the place where everything starts. Tenzing Hilary Airport, Lukla serves the main access point in order to visit Khumbu region. Flight to Lukla is an adventure in itself. The 14 days trek to Everest Base Camp often been known as one of the best long distance trek in the world.

Following the trails beside Dudh Koshi, crossing over many suspension bridge. The trail first day of the trek takes you to Phadking. Each tea house of the trails welcomes you with happy face, friendliness, good food and necessary suppliers. Waking on the trail on this part of the world you won’t forget sound of the Yak bells, a sound that will lead you to Everest Base Camp.

In order to avoid altitude sickness, a very common occurrence in the Himalayan region. It is very important to give our body time to get used to the altitude of this region. The main idea and the most recommended rule is to trek high and sleep low.


Interaction with other trekkers, gaining knowledge, sharing experience is something that makes this trekking experience more exciting. Another piece of advice is try not to carry many items with you. Keep the stuffs at one of the lodges you stay and collect it back on your way down. Take the trekking slow, don’t rush.

Along the way you will meet many puppies that will make your day and of course Yaks. You do have to cross ancient shone crafted Mani wall and plenty of suspension bridges with colorful fluttering Buddhist flags. Monastery at Tengboche is one of the world’s highest monastery located at the ridge of the mountain. Be careful, during the night, temperature can drop drastically. Frozen water bottles are normal.

It is where it starts to feel the effects of the altitudes along with the thin air and freezing temperatures at night. Moving up on the trails there will be moments when it’s hard to believe that you will be around four thousand meters and high surrounded by 6000m to 8000m above mountains.

However, Everest base camp trek takes you to Kalapatthar (5540m), one of the highest trekking point provides you awesome views of mountains like Everest, Chyangtse, Pumori, Choyu, Nuptse, Lotshe and many other mountains. The artistic old monastery with the magnificent views of Himalayas blends the culture and nature.

Experienced Sherpa guides, responsible porters and expertly designed itineraries ensure trekkers' fitness and focused acclimatization as well as nominal cost will make this trekking an experience of lifetime.

Some major insight of EBC Trek
  • Get ready for flight diversion to Ramechhap, four hour driving distance from Kathmandu.

  • Flight cancellation or delayed due to bad weather. It is advice to have 2-3 day extra then that of trekking days.

  • If you wish to take helicopter from Kathmandu to Lukla or Ramechhap to Lukla you need to pay extra for helicopter fare.

  • Airlines operating for Lukla Airport only allows you to carry 15kg luggage so pack your stuffs wisely.

  • The hotel/teahouses charge few dollars extra for hot water ($3-$5) and to charge your electronics ($3-$5).

  • You can buy Wi-Fi card in Luka or Namche Bazzar for $25-$30. Data volume of 10GB-20GB is provided with validity for 30 days in Everest region. We do not assure that the Wi-Fi works very fast, but it’s not that bad. However, you know it totally depends on the weather and location.

  • Weather in the Himalayas are always unpredicted so please be aware for yourself. Don’t panic and don’t worry on things you cannot control. Be in the moment and live the moment.

  • Always listen to your guide, and most importantly tell him how you are feeling physically. If you are tired tell him. Don’t keep up with yourself.

  • Drones are not allowed. If it is important for you then you need to have special permits in order to fly drones. There are many unscheduled helicopters flying so it’s very tough to obtain permission and fly them.

  • Lastly, don’t forget your insurance.


A day in a Trek

The day during the trek starts with amazing sunrise from a place you stay. You will freshen up and enjoy the breakfast with delightful views. Breakfast items in the teahouses would be bread, eggs, tea, coffee and cereals too.

Usually trek starts from 7-8 am in the morning as we have to reach the next destination before dark. You will be walking average 5-6 hour a day. Remember do not rush, carry on in your own pace. You have carry some snacks in order to munch in the trails while resting. You will be passing through beautiful landscapes, amazing scenery, and many chortens from small to big, Mani walls etc. which gives glimpse of people faith in Buddhism.

 

Walking some hours after having breakfast you will stop in one of the tea houses for lunch. Some place you can choose your food but in some place you have to eat what they offer. Don’t worry they don’t offer something bad. However we make sure that you are provided with alpine food that meets the needs of human body at such attitude and provide nutrients and energy to reach your destination.

 

Finally, completing your long hour of walk, you will be resting in one of the local teahouses/hotels. You can enjoy some light snacks. Later you will be having dinner, a food of your choice in places till Dingboche. You need to rest well and get acclimatize. You can interact with other trekkers and climbers too. There are good quality warm blankets on the teahouses but you can also use sleeping bag if you want. You can play board games, cards or do some other activity during the evenings.

Why flight to Lukla is diverted to Ramechhap, Manthali Airport?

Well, the weather in mountains are difficult to predict and due to high volume of trekkers travelling to Lukla, the flight is not safe to operate from Kathmandu during day time. The winds make it difficult to land in Lukla when flying from Kathmandu. The other thing is the distance, as from Ramechhap the flight duration is about 20minutes and it’s pretty safe during difficult weather condition in comparison to flight from Kathmandu.

While it's technically possible to have a daytime flight to Lukla, the high risks associated with the rapidly changing weather conditions in Lukla have led the Tribhuvan International Airlines Authority to reject this unsafe daytime flight option. Instead, they have rerouted flights to depart from Ramechhap Airport (Manthali Airport).

Moreover, in order to provide some context, Lukla witnesses a daily arrival of approximately 20 to 30 aircraft during the peak season. Approximately, 30,000-40,000 trekkers visit the area annually and choose to fly into Lukla. In order to control this volume the domestic airport at Kathmandu is nearly impossible as the domestic airport is pretty small. 

Tailored Everest Adventures

For those who are seeking thrilling adventure at the Himalayas, island peak with Everest base camp trekking will be an exciting journey.  It's considered a good option for those who want to experience high-altitude climbing without tackling the more technical and challenging peaks.

Permits required are Sagarmatha national park entry permit as well as local community fee at Lukla. The community fee is used for betterment of trail as well as place. The National Park entry fee cost you around $30 and $20 approx. for local community fees.

Guides and Potters

We provide you an experienced team of Guides, Sherpa and Porters who are good communicators, engaging and who don’t play preference. All of them have an ability to handle crisis and difficult situation. We also provide you with responsible porter where all your belongings are taken care safely. Depending on your group size we provide numbers of guides accordingly who will take care of you by giving undivided attention and push you accordingly respecting your strengths while recognizing your freedom or space. Lastly, we provide you amazing and well experienced human resource required for a trip where all your needs are fulfilled. Porters can carry only 20 kg so it is suggested to pack lightly.

Accommodation

We offer you very good accommodation at the available guesthouses/teahouses. The teahouses/hotel has good accommodation offering clean and warm blankets. The comfort is not compromised, whereas from the areas above Dingboche the accommodation facilities are less. However, we assure you to provide you best of the accommodation available in the area. As above this place there are very less accommodations facility and it’s tough to get a nice one. However, we put our maximum effort and years of contact with people in that region to ensure you will get the best when travelling with us. The accommodation available in mountains ranges from basic to luxury depending on your choice we provide accommodation.

Foods

The case with food is similar to accommodation where it is available you can have food of your choice in places like Namche, Tengboche and others. However, we assure you we provide you with alpine dishes that meet the needs of human body and provides nutrients and energy in order to reach the destination safely. Breakfast and dinners are usually consumed at the place you will be staying. For lunch you can have it on the one of the teahouses on the trail. The teahouse/hotels offer different cuisines starting Asian, Continental as well as few other cuisines. However, we do not guarantee that you will get the food of your choice with taste of your own.

Fitness Requirement

You need be fit but not super fit. The trail is not that demanding physically but mentally it’s a challenge due to long trekking days. You have to walk many hours for numerous days. If you have strong determination of reaching the base camp then this trek will be piece of cake. Some days you just want to get back to home and you might feel that you want to return back but if you control those emotion then you will definitely love trekking experience.

Best season to go

The best season for Everest Base Camp Trek is the months of Spring (March to May) and fall (October to November). During this season the weather is favorable and perfect to climb in high elevation. The season offers the best snow capped Mountain views with a clear blue sky. It is also possible to do in February and September but the trek is always best in above months. We do not prefer this trip during the monsoon season from June to August because of heavy rainfall and December and January because of extreme cold. 

About flight delays and cancellation of Lukla

 As we all know the flight to Lukla provides very thrilling experience and such encounter will remain lifelong. However for the trekkers and company flying to lukla has always been a dilemma due to the challenging land topography and unpredictable weather condition which leads to unsafe takeoffs and landing of aircraft. One of the major reason for delays and flight cancellation is due to weather.

As the Domestic Airport in Nepal doesn’t have the technology of Instrumental Landing System which is a precision radio navigation system that provides short-range guidance to aircraft to allow them to approach a runway at night or in bad weather. Being one of the highest airport and gate way to Everest and many other places in Everest region which is surrounded by mountain where radio communication are always tough as well.

So it is recommended to trekkers travelling to such region in the greater Himalaya it is recommended to have extra 1 or 2 days apart from itinerary which they follow. If such delay or cancellation occurs then you have a choice to wait for the flight for next day or you to take helicopter because delays and cancellation is real in this part of world as, delays like few hours are normal. Like other part of world 15 minutes to an hour delays are considered but in Lukla flight this part is different and uncanny.

However in such cases the alternatives are always available, taking charted helicopter which fly in condition where aircraft cannot are always in service. If one has to take helicopter then s/he must pay extra however the flight amount is refunded.

Insurance and emergency rescue

Mountaineering travel insurance benefits cover mountaineering injuries. Many travel insurance policies exclude mountaineering and other adventurous activities from the plan`s benefits. Mountaineering and trekking insurance usually indicate the maximum altitude covered by the plan. Always consider the highest altitude of your trekking when purchasing travel insurance for your trek in Himalayas.

In addition to mountaineering injuries, mountaineering travel insurance includes medical evacuation insurance, surgery, emergency hospital visits, with other policy benefits.

In some cases, if you are on a serious mountaineering or adventurous trekking trip in Nepal and get sick there (either due to high altitude or physical injury), when you will not be able to access the local hospital, you will be on an expensive helicopter rescue. In such case you will be rescued and personal travel insurance will be covered.

Travel insurance and medical insurance are required to travel anywhere, but Nepal  which has special features during travelling such as avalanches, sudden changes in weather patterns, alpine trekking trails, high Himalayan passes, high altitude trekking, peak climbing, mountaineering and alpine disease. Travel insurance covers theft, loss and medical problems. When traveling to Nepal, choose a policy that covers ambulances and emergency return, including helicopter evacuation. With travel insurance, you can cover most of the risks of trekking in Nepal.

The policy helps you recover from an emergency medical evacuation in the event of lost luggage or travel cancellation. Lately Global Holidays Adventure is only accepting the visitors, having valid travel insurance. And very importantly, get insurance in order to cover the cost of rescue helicopters from the mountains in the event of a serious accident or altitude sickness.

Required Equipments

The choice of equipment depends on the individual interest and choice. The factor to consider is to carry enough clothing in order to tackle unpredictable weather conditions of the Himalayas. Personal belongings are carried in the back pack you carry and rest are carried by Yaks or porters. Water proof duffel bags are provided by us which will be carried by our responsible porters.

We were right to consider Global Holidays

I am glad that I chose Global Holidays as our agency for our family's trip to Nepal. There are lots of travel agencies in Nepal but I am glad that we chose Global Holidays. Mr. Samsher was very responsive to all of our queries during the planning stage of our trip. He provided a customized itinerary suitable for our group and accommodated changes along the way. Global Holidays only required 20% downpayment for the tour sent via wire transfer, which was not bad. They did not immediately collect the remaining balance on the first day; hence, they asked for it when all of the activities for the tour were done. Surya, our guide, was also nice and accommodating. He guided us all throughout our stay in Nepal. We enjoyed the Everest Helicopter tour. We were assigned to a very experienced and calm pilot from Manang Air. Surya was right when we stayed for breakfast at Kongde Yeti Mountain Home as it provided a spectacular view of the Himalayan mountains. Surya surely knew the best spots in some of Kathmandu's iconic places. He was patient and always smiled. The complimentary Nepalese dinner with cultural show during our last night in Kathmandu was perfect to end our unforgetable trip to Nepal. I would definitely consider Global Holidays in our future trips to Bhutan and Tibet.

amazing and comfortable trekking to Everest Base Camp

I would like to thank the team of Global Holidays Adventure for this amazing and comfortable trekking to Everest Base Camp. I was doubtful in choosing this agency at first but I got very good responds of my emails that I choose them over the other agencies I was consulting. I went to Everest base camp which provided me excellent mountains views and culture aspect of high mountain villages. Mr. Surya came to greet us at Kathmandu airport and brief about the trekking in Hotel which really appreciated. We did Kathmandu sightseeing which is most culturally and historically bless city of Nepal. Our guide Ajay was nice patient and responsible. He instructed me properly and took really good care of me. The tea houses they provided me were nice which was available in our trail. They had proper quality of foods and the hostility of the locals were really hearth touching. We hiked up to Kalapattar which is amazing and I encounter the all Himalayas to Nepal. Reaching the destination is somehow challenging and unbelievable but with the help of guide I completed this trip successfully. I have collected lots of memories and experiences from this trekking and all the credit goes to this amazing team of Global Holidays Adventure. I will definitely back to this company for next time.

Awesome ebc trek

The company took care of everything. They assigned me a guide named Pemba who made sure I was taken care of the whole trek. From start to finish the company was there, helping me pick up all the necessities before the trek, checking on me during the trek and picking me up afterwards. The guide was too funny, caring and responsible and he made such adventurous trek like piece of cake.

TitlePerfectly designed itinerary

The perfectly designed itinerary with given authority to change for travelers according to their preferences. We trekked to Everest base camp and along the way the place we stayed was very cozy and the staffs were hospitable and attentive as well. The guide was experienced and was funny. His interesting tales while walking on trails made easy and comfortable trek to Base camp. Numbers of times he went out of the way in order to fulfill our some demands. Returning from Kalapatthar we have helicopter taking us down to Lukla, where the pilot was very experienced and even in such harsh weather condition he managed to bring us safely back to Lukla. We are very thankful to the team of Global Holidays Adventure and our lovely guide Dorchu Sherpa who made our trek easy and successful. We promise returning to Nepal and explore more with Global Holidays.
