Additional Info

Everest Base Camp Trek terrain & difficulty 

Everest Base Camp 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 get remote with an increase in elevation. You have to walk in thin air before touching EBC, 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.

Best time to go on Everest Base Camp Trek

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

The trail sees hundreds of flowers bloom in the spring. And autumn adds the warmth of festivity to the environment as the Nepalese celebrate their biggest festivals in this season. 

Trekking Everest Base Camp in winter is possible, but you have to be well prepared to face freezing cold and possible trail blockage. Monsoon is not a good time of the year to trek to EBC.

Food & Accommodation during Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trekking route is one of the developed trekking routes in the Himalayas, therefore you will get both luxury and budget-friendly accommodations. Our Everest Base Camp Trek package includes a lodge stay. The rooms will be small with limited furniture and a double bed. Likewise, the washroom will be shared/private depending upon the lodge. 

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be given during the trek. The food will be served as per the menu of the lodge. You can get dishes like rice, curries, momo, noodles, pasta, pizza, sandwich, soup, toast, eggs, meat, veggies, porridge, bakery items, tea, coffee, thukpa, etc. 

Tips to make the journey smooth

  • Doble checks all the gears and clothing before embarking on the trek.
  • Carry a reusable water bottle and fill it in the lodge/tea shops along the route. It will save you a lot of money and also keep the environment clean.
  • You may not find ATMs beyond Namche Bazar, so withdraw enough cash to use further on the trail.
  • Do know that you may have to pay a few extra bucks to use services like WiFi, hot shower, and charging booth at some places.
  • Carry a Nepali SIM card to use cellular data on the way (network may not be stable all the time).
  • Carry extra batteries or a solar charger.
  • You can tip any amount you like to the crew members. To give you a general idea, this is what we recommend- USD 100 to porter & guide, USD 5 to the tour guide, and USD 2 to the driver.
  • Always walk on the mountainside, especially when yaks and mules are passing by.
  • Drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated. Hydration is the key to avoiding altitude sickness.
  • Always say Namaste to the locals touching both palms and bending a little.

  • Q1. What about weight limits?

    The main limitation on the weight is the luggage limit on the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla which is 10kg (22 lbs) and another 5kg (11 lbs) for a carry-on for a total of 15 kg or 33 lbs.

  • Everest Base Camp Trek costs. The Everest Base Camp Trek costs you anywhere from $ 700 to 5000$, depending on your requirement 

  • A 12-day trek to Everest Base Camp could cost between $1,200 and $2,500 per person, not including any additional costs for peak season booking. Many travelers opt to work with Skyhook, our platform that connects travelers with amazing local guides at direct prices.

  • In theory, no. Anyone with robust cardiovascular capability and good stamina should be able to cope with higher elevations and lower oxygen density. Trekking or hiking experience anywhere in the world is strongly recommended for maximum enjoyment of your Himalayan adventure, however.

  • We take all possible precautions to proactively ensure the safety and wellness of our trekkers, but rest assured that our guides are trained and experienced in dealing with emergencies. If necessary, your guide will utilize your travel insurance information to call a rescue helicopter, and you will be flown to Kathmandu for medical attention.


  • There are laundry services available in some of the tea houses, and it may be possible to wash some clothes during your acclimation days in Namche Bazaar or Dingboche for a small fee. It is better to plan and pack enough, then wash your clothes when you get back to Kathmandu at the end of the trip. 


  • Most of the tea houses have Western-style flush toilets and cold running water. In almost all cases the bathrooms are shared and not attached to the individual rooms. Some of the higher-elevation tea houses have Asian-style toilets which consist of a ceramic basin on the ground (Bathrooms on the Everest Trek. 


  • Some of the lower-elevation tea houses offer Wi-Fi for an extra charge of $3 to $10. Another option is to get a Nepalese SIM card in Kathmandu for both internet and calls. Even if you have a SIM card data use is mainly limited to lower-elevation tea houses. You can also use your guide’s phone for international calls as long as you reimburse him for the charges which tend to be fairly reasonable.

  • A lot of the tea houses have power strips with American outlets. If not then either a C or D type outlet is good. You can check out all the details on the different outlets. If you have time in Kathmandu you can buy at least the common adapters for just a couple of dollars. 


  • They have electricity at the tea houses in the common areas. They do charge an extra fee of $1 to $4 an hour for charging. 


  • We provide all the meals on the trek but don't provide water. The best option is to treat the local water either with chlorine/iodine tablets or use a sterile pen. The tea houses will give you good quality free water and you can also get along the trail but you will need to treat it. If you are using the tablets make sure they dissolve completely (about 30 mins). On most treks, you can buy mineral water along the trail. A liter of mineral water at lower-elevation tea houses costs around USD 1 but at higher elevations can cost up to $4 so the cost can add up.


  • We can arrange a private room in Kathmandu. In some of the villages on the trek, it may be possible to have a private room (at no extra cost) and we will do our best to arrange that. However, during busy times of the year there is a limited amount of lodging available in some of the villages so it's generally impossible to arrange private rooms. This is the case even if you're willing to pay extra since the tea house owners will not give out a private room if it means someone else goes without a room. 


  • All of our trekking packages include 3 nights hotel in Kathmandu and we can arrange extra nights on request. Please let us know in advance if you need extra nights so they can be reserved. You can pay for any extra nights when you arrive at the hotel directly or office. Sometimes you will find cheaper rates online for these hotels, but the advantage of having us make the arrangements is that if your Lukla flight is delayed we can shift or cancel the reservation at no extra cost.

  • Yes, you can leave any luggage at the hotel or our office in Kathmandu during the trek. 


  • Generally, we recommend a day pack of about 40 L, or roughly the size of a school backpack to hold your extra layers as well as essentials for the day. 


  • We will provide a duffel bag for you in Kathmandu. The duffel bag will be carried by the porters on the trek and will be your luggage item on the flight. Often the porters get ahead on the trail and your duffel will not be available until you reach the tea house in the evening so you will need to carry a day pack while hiking with the items you need during the day.


  • We ensure the travel safety of all our trekking guests, both male and female. Nepal, on the whole, is both very safe and welcoming of foreign visitors. We have long-standing, strong relationships with the lodges we frequent, and know them to be safe and reliable. In addition, our guides are consistently mindful of all guests' whereabouts while trekking. We travel in small groups, all the better to easily maintain continual contact.


  • There's no limit on our adventures, as long as participants are healthy and willing! We have had families with kids as young as 7 years do the Everest Base Camp Trek and our eldest trekkers have been in their late 70s. We generally suggest that families schedule a private trek and schedule a few extra days. Don't hesitate to ask us about arrangements.


  • Yes, you can take a helicopter to Everest Base Camp. Check out Everest Base Camp Helicopter Tour and Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek to see the itinerary with helicopter drop/pickup at the base camp.


  • No, you can't see Mt. Everest from the Everest Base Camp because other giant mountains like Lhotse and Nuptse block the view of the top. However, you can see the views of Everest from many other points throughout the trek.


  • Everest base camp is situated at 5,364 m (17,598 ft). 


  • March to April (spring) and October to November (autumn) is the best time to go on the Everest base camp trek. You can also go on this trek in the early winter.


  • No, you can't see Everest from Lukla. The first view of Mt. Everest is seen from Namche Bazar during the Everest Base Camp trek.


  • No, there is no WiFi service at Everest Base Camp, but you can use Ncell's sim to use cellular data at the base camp. The connection may not be stable all the time due to elevation and weather conditions.


  • We recommend you start preparing for Everest Base Camp Trek 4 to 6 weeks before the trek. You can focus on increasing your stamina and core body strength. Cycling, hiking, swimming, etc are some great workouts.


  • Everest Base Camp trek is a doable trek for beginner trekkers, but the trekkers have to be in good shape and healthy. The trail has many steep ascents and descents, and you have to walk 6 to 7 hours a day with a day pack.

  • Everest Base Camp trek cost may vary as per the itinerary you are following and the services you are willing to use. Generally, our EBC trek package costs around USD 1495 to USD 1999, including flights and overnight stay in Kathmandu. Get in touch with us for more information.
