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 voted 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.

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.

Permits
You will be needing few permits in order to trek in the world famous trail of Everest base camp. The permits can be obtained either at Kathmandu or Lukla. 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. Actually the accommodation charge that we pay for night is also given to local community and is not kept by hotel, not even a percent.

Guides and Potter
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.

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.

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.

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.

Lastly, despite of what once you reach base camp you will definitely feel it was all worth it.

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.

Additional Information

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.
