Everest Base Camp Trek Information

Accommodation in Kathmandu:

Our comprehensive package includes accommodation in Kathmandu as per your itinerary, featuring private bathrooms and twin-sharing bedrooms. We prioritize our clients’ comfort, ensuring a pleasant stay in Kathmandu. Your hotel will be conveniently located, providing easy access to essential amenities such as shopping malls, restaurants, and transportation.

Accommodation in Everest Base Camp Trek:

Throughout your Everest Base Camp Trek, you will enjoy twin-sharing rooms with private bathrooms in Namche, Phakding, and Lukla. Subsequently, you will spend your nights in local tea houses during the entire trek. We meticulously ensure that our clients experience a comfortable stay after their 7 to 8 hours of trekking. While most tea houses provide shared toilets, please note that as you ascend above 4500 meters, the availability of accommodation may become limited. In such instances, sharing a common room might be necessary to ensure the well-being of all trekkers.

Food in Kathmandu:

Kathmandu offers a diverse array of culinary options, ranging from fine dining to fast food, encompassing Nepalese and Asian cuisines. The city provides you the freedom to choose from various restaurants, allowing you to tailor your culinary experience to your preferences.

Food During the Everest Base Camp Trek:

Throughout the trek, local tea houses and lodges will offer international standard food alongside authentic Nepalese cuisine. As part of your package, lunch will be provided on the way during the trek. If you have specific dietary requirements, such as being vegan, vegetarian, or on a gluten-free diet, please inform us in advance during your time in Kathmandu. This ensures that we can organize suitable food options, prioritizing your health and cultural considerations.

Guide & Porter During EBC Trek:

Guides and porters are integral to all trekking endeavors in Nepal. Our guides are experts in navigating your chosen trekking route, possessing valid government licenses. Expect to meet our regular guides, who are responsible, friendly, and adept in communication with excellent English proficiency. Your guide, equipped with trekking essentials, including a First Aid Kit, will keep you informed about altitude-related considerations, ensuring a safe and enjoyable trekking experience.

Drinking-Water during EBC Trek:

While bottled mineral water is not included in your package, we recommend bringing a portable filter or retaining your empty bottle for refills at tea houses. Tea houses and lodges provide hot and warm water, allowing you to replenish your bottle or utilize local taps for water. For convenience, consider carrying water purification tablets to filter or purify water during the trek. As you ascend to higher altitudes, grocery items and water costs may increase due to expensive transportation, often necessitating imports via helicopter.

Additional Information:

When planning your adventure in Nepal, there are essential items to bring, but trekking equipment is generally available at reasonable prices in Kathmandu. Some items, such as a trekking backpack, warm clothing, raincoat, and headlight, should be brought personally. You may purchase trekking equipment locally.

Altitude Sickness:

Altitude sickness is a consideration, and recognizing its symptoms is crucial for a safe trek. Symptoms range from loss of appetite and sleep disturbance to more severe indications like irregular breathing and nausea. In extreme cases, swelling of hands and face, inability to stand upright without swaying, and zero energy may occur.

Preventing Altitude Sickness:

Acclimatization through a gradual ascent is essential, with rest at intermediate altitudes. Adequate fluid intake, approximately four liters daily, helps counteract the dry mountain air. Drinking hot garlic soup along the trail aids acclimatization. For preventive measures, consider taking Diamox 250mg tablets the night before ascending. If serious symptoms manifest, descent should not be delayed, and immediate evacuation options, including horse or helicopter assistance, will be arranged based on the severity of the case.
