Trip Overview

Within the 12 days Everest Base Camp trek, we experience the stirring flight to Lukla, astonishing mountain ranges, trek up to the Base Camp of the highest peak in the world, reach up to an elevation of 5340m and mingle with local culture enjoying the diversified terrain; from abundant greenery to the snowy peaks. Everest Base camp is one of the most celebrated treks in Nepal. Perhaps what makes it so popular is watching the mountain roar out its beauty up at 8840m. The trek nevertheless requires strong stamina and determination both physically and mentally. Planning for the Quest to Everest itself might be challenging due to schedules and timing. Keeping this in mind, Adventure Mountain Explore has come up with a 12 days short Everest trek showcasing the best of the Khumbu region and the magnificent Himalayan massifs.

The 12 days Everest trek starts from Kathmandu. We take a morning flight to Tenzing Hilary Airport, Lukla from where we start our day’s trek till Phakding. From Phakding, we walk uphill coming across settlements like Namche, Tengboche and Dingboche and Lobuche. From here, we walk up to Kala Patthar which is the famous Everest View point; higher than the Base Camp itself.

Note that our full package trip includes airport transfers, accommodations on a trek, Flight Lukla-Ktm-Lukla, all meals, English speaking guide, porter to carry your entire stuff, required local tax and national park entry permits, Safe water to drink, 4 hot showers and additional goodies such as duffel bag, company t-shirt, certificates and trekking route map.

The Everest Base Camp trek requires excellent stamina and both mental and physical determination. Acclimating is key. We suggest you to be prepared for high altitude by training your body. March-May and September to November are the best months to plan this trek considering the weather, temperature, visibility and the trail.

Short Everest Base Camp Trek Information

Since the itinerary covers 12 days which is regarded as one of the shortest trek to Everest Base Camp, the trek requires excellent stamina and endurance. Thus, we suggest you to train before coming for the trek. Physical training is important but so is mental training. The culture, altitude and change in lifestyle can leave an impact for long term. Thus, prepping both mentally and physically can be of a great help once we are in the mountains.

Likewise, High Altitude Sickness (Acute Mountain Sickness) is another common difficulty that arises during the trek. Altitude sickness is a physical condition that occurs in higher elevation due to change in air pressure causing nausea, diarrhea, fever and loss of appetite or even fatal death. Everest Base Camp lies at an altitude of 5364m, trekkers might still anticipate problems of altitude sickness. In such cases, your team leader will make the arrangements for you to hike down, instead of continuing further. We request you to be flexible and follow the instruction of the team leader. It is also good to have physical and mental preparation before opting for the trek. No major technical skill is required to plan Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal. However, prior hiking or camping experiences will definitely be considered as a plus point. Also, a few weeks of regular exercises like jogging, running, swimming, cycling, uphill climbing is highly recommended to build the required stamina, before the trip.

Winter – December, January and February, are not good months to plan the Everest Trek since the area gets dense with snow and the trails also close due to extreme conditions.

Summer -  Mid June, July and August are not the best months to trek as the monsoon rain affects the trail and the visibility; however, on request the trek can be arranged at this time of the year.

We also request you to set aside USD 200 (or an amount equivalent to USD 200) as an emergency fund. This fund is kept as security money during the trek and will be utilized in the case of any changes in the itinerary caused by unforeseen natural disaster.

Tipping during the trek

You can tip your service providers to show your gratitude and satisfaction. You can tip your service providers like guides, porters, drivers and waiters. The tip amount entirely depends upon your wish. However, there is a custom of tipping 10% of the total trip cost in the ratio of 60:40 (60% of the total tip amount to the guide and 40% to the porter) to the guide and porter.

Health, Medication and Medical Facilities during the trek

The treks demand excellent stamina, and the best health conditions as most of the days require 6-8 hours walk. Therefore, we suggest you get a physical examination at east 4-6 weeks prior to the trek and seek advice, medication as well as the permission from your doctor, before the trip. We also recommend you take expert guidance from your local General Practitioner with expertise in altitude illness and travel medicines.  Please get screened for hypertension, diabetes mellitus, anemia, ulcer disease, cardiovascular disease and lung related problems. Any person with a strong family history or over the age of 40 should make cardiovascular risk assessment. Getting a good dental checkup and identifying medicines that you are allergic to are a must. Make sure you are immunized and vaccinated against measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, varicella, Hemophilus influenza type b infection, Hepatitis A and B Typhoid, rabies, yellow fever, cholera, meningococcal disease and encephalitis. In the absence of GP, please seek advice from travel clinics.

Kindly inform us regarding your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness and the medicines you are taking, so that we can get prepared for emergencies. 

Most of the general hospitals and private clinics are available in Kathmandu, therefore, finding a good medical facility isn’t difficult in the capital. However, the Himalayan Rescue Association (HRA) operates aid posts in Pheriche (Khumbu) managed by expatriate physicians, during the peak trekking seasons. With an aim to reduce the deaths among trekkers, it provides free advices to trekkers on altitude sickness, equipments and the condition of the trekking routes.

Try not to bring any valuable belongings like jewelry. Even if you bring, we recommend you to safely store in the deposit boxes in the hotel in Kathmandu. Also bring a lock to secure your luggage.
Remember! Neither the team leader nor the company will be responsible for the security involved during any extra activities not included in the itinerary.  

Travel Insurance

Getting travel insurance is a must, if you are looking for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Your travel insurance should cover all the additional expenses that might result due to various health issues, injuries or accidents (together with air ambulance, helicopter rescue or other treatment cost). Your insurance policy should also cover all extra activities that you are planning to during your stay in Nepal. Moreover, the policy should also cover death, misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (hospital charges, medicine charges and the doctor’s fee) as well as the repatriation cost.
