Trip PlanExpand all

Nepal's capital city, Kathmandu, is situated in a valley encircled on all sides by gorgeous verdant hills. Let's say you arrive via the airlines. With our corporate flag flying, the Mystic Adventure Vacations representative will be in the airport terminal. In the culture of Nepal, Namaste" (which means "I greet the god within you") is said with the palms of one's hands pressed together in front of the chest. Together with garlands, red tika (tilak) on your forehead, and khadas (Buddhist shawls) or garlands, there can be a bow or nod of the head, depending on the status of the person you are welcoming. When someone enters in Nepal, garlands and tilak are considered a sign of honor to extend a sincere greeting. Our representative will greet you, drop you off at your hotel, and assist you with the entire check-in process. Our agent will greet you at your destination if you arrive by car.

There aren't any events scheduled for you. You are free to rest and go exploring if you'd like to see what's around you. Spend the night in a Kathmandu hotel

You may have learned how to say "Namaste" or "Dhanyabad" to someone when you first arrived in Nepal, but you should be aware that this ancient civilization, rich in history and culture, still adheres to its own set of beliefs and customs centuries after it was founded. Here is a collection of social graces that are specific to Nepal that may come in handy during your trips there to help you avoid being impolite and embarrassing in public. Nepal's roads are incredibly unreliable. There are often many traffic bottlenecks on roads since they are often used. Most places also lack traffic lights, so you have to rely on the hand signals made by the traffic police when you're driving.

Essential Info

Everest View Trek: difficulty and terrain

Everest View Trek is a moderate trek with a fair share of challenging steep ascends and descends. Mind you, descents are as difficult as ascents, so don't take it lightly and be careful on the track. You will be walking 6 to 7 hours a day at a minimum; therefore, you have to be in good health and fitness. 

The trail winds through dense forests, and the region gets remote with an increase in elevation. You have to walk in thin air before touching the Everest region, which can get challenging for some trekkers. Along with that, you always have to look for altitude sickness and make sure you do not get any symptoms. You can learn more about altitude sickness here.

To enjoy the trek to its fullest, you have to trek in the spring and autumn. Spring (March to April) and autumn (October to November) are the best times of the year to go on the Everest Base Camp Trek. These seasons have moderate climates and stable weather.

Autumn adds the warmth of festivity to the environment as the Nepalese celebrate their biggest festivals in this season. Trekking Everest View in winter is possible, but you have to be well prepared to face the cold and possible trail blockage. The monsoon is not a good time of the year to trek to EBC.
