Trip Overview of Everest Base Camp Trek All Inclusive Standard Package

Everest Base Camp Trek All Inclusive Standard Package 14 days is an exciting journey that takes you through majestic Himalayan vistas and routes rich in Sherpa culture. You can trek through suspension bridges to visit hidden Buddhist monasteries.

Everest Base Camp Trek takes you on an adventure at the base of Mt. It is located in the Solu-Khumbu district of the Everest region of Province 1. EBC's trekking route also passes through Everest National Park.

The 14 days itinerary offers you great pleasure by giving you a close view of Mount Everest from multiple perspectives. You can also see other magnificent peaks like Lhotse, Nuptse, Pumori, Aba Dablam, and more.

The Everest region is mainly inhabited by the Sherpa community. Although there are other castes such as Rai, Limbu, Gurung living here, the population is low. However, most of these people follow Tibetan-influenced culture and traditions.

Trails take you to the base of Mt. Everest, but it is not the highest point. There is another destination that is located at a higher altitude, and that is Kala Pathra. This place is famous for its sunrise and panoramic view.

You can also enter the famous Everest National Park. The forest trails are home to various species of plants and endangered animals that can be seen during the trek.

The trek is 14 days long, so two days are kept for acclimatization. During this time, you do not rest but visit the famous Everest View Hotel, Khunde Hospital, Khumjung Monastery. Also, you will visit Chukung Ri or Nagarjuna Peak.

This moderate trek begins with an exciting flight adventure to Lukla with breathtaking views of hills, valleys and mountains. Then you start trekking to Phakding for the night.

The next day, you will head towards Namche Bazaar, the hub of the Everest Region. You are friendly here, so enjoy side trips to Khumjung, Khunde and Everest View Hotel.

The next day, you will go to Tengboche and later Dingboche, where your next adaptation will be completed. During your stay here, you will go trekking to nearby peaks.

After a beautiful time in Dingboche for acclimatization, you now walk to Lobuche and prepare for the trek to EBC. You visit Gorakshep the next day and then trek to Everest Base Camp and return back to Gorakshep for overnight.

From there you descend to Pheriche, then Namche, and finally reach Lukla. From Lukla, you return to Kathmandu ending your 14 days Everest base camp trek.

FAQs

Is it a safe flight to Lukla?

Lukla Airport is one of the most dangerous airports in the world. However, more than 30 aircraft land at Lukla every day. During the high season, almost all of the 40,000 hikers fly to Lukla to visit the Everest region trek.

While it’s more dangerous statistically than a typical commercial airport, it is still pretty safe.

When it comes to safety, our focus is to get our customers on one of the first flights of the day. When you confirm the booking and send us your passport copies with a 20% advance payment, we will book the flight tickets immediately, so it is most important to send us this information quickly when you have made the deposit for the trip.

Due to the number of trekking groups we run in the Everest region, we get good priority with the airlines for our guests. In general, our groups get on either the first or the second group of flights going out each day during the peak season. We pick these flights because the weather tends to be much more stable and the visibility is better for landing first thing in the morning. Getting early flights is one of the key things we focus on to ensure our guests' safety and try to minimize delays in their itinerary’s programs.

Planning for Delays at Lukla

Lukla’s landing strip is short and it runs to the edge of a large cliff face, making the approach very challenging. The airstrip has a single possible approach path through the windy valley it overlooks, and only very small aircraft and helicopters can make the journey. Due to its position and elevation, weather conditions and visibility can change rapidly. This makes the flight a difficult one to schedule or predict. The airlines do not take chances with weather conditions and will return a flight to Kathmandu anywhere along its journey rather than risk an unsafe landing if conditions have changed since takeoff.

Delays with Lukla flights are very common. These can happen any time of year but are especially likely around the monsoon season (late May to early September). If your flight is delayed, we will reschedule you for the next possible flight. As conditions can change so rapidly, this may be very soon after your scheduled departure, or as much as a few days later – it is very difficult to predict. This can be pretty frustrating but is simply part of the journey to the Everest region. We strongly recommend you add at least a day or two to the end of your trip to give yourself some flexibility in the case of any delays.

Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip. This gives you flexibility with your trekking itinerary in case of any weather delays. Batter to add to your trip itinerary for at least two or three days, and those days, if you get a flight on time, can be used for city tours, river rafting, jungle safari tours, and a variety of other activities.

These are good guidelines and, in our experience, are sufficient nearly all of the time, but at the end of the day, it’s up to the weather.

What About Luggage Delays at Lukla?

It’s not common, but it is possible that your luggage will be shifted to another flight or delayed by the airline. The most important thing is to have all of your valuables and anything else you might need in an emergency, such as prescription medication, in your carry-on. Luggage delays or bags misplaced by the airline are out of our control, but we will do our best to get your gear to you on the trail.

 

How Much Does the Lukla Helicopter Cost?

If you do opt for a helicopter, you can expect to pay around $400 to $600 extra per person. Helicopter rates vary as a rule and increase when demand increases. That means the helicopter will be the most expensive when everyone needs one and the cheapest on nice sunny days when the flights are running normally. The rates given by our team in Kathmandu may not always match what is offered locally on the mountain. If you’re waiting for a flight back to Kathmandu, it can be worth asking at the local office in Lukla as well. The extra seats on a flight are basically a wasted asset, so prices are always changing as they’re trying to fill every seat on every flight.

What are the options to get back to Kathmandu when the Lukla flights are canceled?

The best option is just to add extra days to your trip and wait for clear weather, but if you’re stuck in Lukla, you will probably find yourself looking into other options as well.

Hike out to Salleri: It’s two long days of hiking from Lukla to Salleri, from where it is possible to get a jeep to Kathmandu, a 10 to 14-hour ride on pretty rough roads.

If helicopters are limited in availability, they may only be available to shuttle guests to Phaplu, which is an airstrip lower in the valley close to Salleri. We can arrange a jeep from Phaplu to Kathmandu. Be prepared for a 10 to 14-hour journey on rough roads. If you have extra time in Nepal, you might be better off waiting an extra day at Lukla for the weather to clear.

Helicopter to Surkhe: Surkhe is just a small village below Lukla where helicopters sometimes land as the visibility is better. It’s about an hour's hike up to Lukla from Surke.

Will Travel Insurance Cover Lukla Flight Delays?

Some policies will cover "trip interruption" that is a result of a rescheduled or canceled flight and will reimburse you for missed international connections or extra travel expenses. Mountain Magic Treks can provide the required documents for your insurance company in case you need to make a claim. We suggest you call your insurance company and see exactly what they cover before you arrive in Nepal.

Why Travel To Lukla With Mountain Magic Treks?

Getting to Lukla can be fairly simple, or it can be a real headache with several days of delays in the case of bad weather. We will do our best to make the journey as smooth as possible either way. If you are thinking of doing the trek with Mountain Magic Treks, or have already booked, you can be assured of several things.

We will book your Lukla flight before you arrive and try to get you on the first or second batch of flights. The earlier you book and send us your passport, the more likely you will have an early flight.

If your flight is delayed or canceled, we have higher priority than independent trekkers or independent guides when it comes to rebooking. This is an important reason to book with an established tour company that can offer the support you need.

We have an office in Kathmandu and one of our staff will be at the airport in Kathmandu during periods of flight delays working to make sure everything is taken care of and you’re kept as up to date as possible on the situation.

We want you to have a great trek and will do our best to ensure a smooth, safe, and timely journey to Lukla.

The best season for 14 days Everest base camp trekking

Everest Base Camp Trek has successful trekking records in all seasons for its trails. Among them, two seasons (spring and autumn) have the highest visit rate. However, winters and monsoons are also well visited but at certain times.

To know more about weather in brief, read below:

Spring Season

Spring is one of the best months for a 14-day Everest base camp trek. The months under this season are March, April and May. During these months, the weather is pleasantly stable, making high altitude climbing exciting.
Mesmerizing views of the Himalayas and colorful rhododendrons on the trails are a plus point under clear skies. Seasons bring new greenery to nature and forest paths that bloom along the banks of flowing streams.

March marks the end of winter, so it's still cold in the first week. But at the end of the week, the heat will increase in the upper part as well. Temperatures range between 7 degrees to 12 degrees on less congested routes.
Likewise, the weather will be warm until April, so the month is busy every day. Views are still clear with the slowly rising heat haze. The temperature ranges from 1 degree to 12 degrees.

May is the last month but the best for both Everest climbing and base camp trek. It has the most stable weather, with sunny days making hiking enjoyable. The temperature ranges from 14 degrees to 26 degrees.

Autumn Season

Autumn is the peak season for the 14-day Everest Base Camp Trek with clear skies, mild temperatures, and low chances of snowfall. It is the fall season, and September, October, November are its months.

Compared to spring, the weather is cooler, with winter winds slowly reaching the Himalayas. Being the post-monsoon season, the routes are overcrowded with trekkers from September marks the end of the monsoon, so there may be little rain in the first week. However, as of last week, the skies are clear, the weather is bright, and the days are sunny. The temperature is between 11 degrees to 20 degrees.

October is the busiest month in autumn due to its perfect weather conditions. This month usually has clear skies and warm days. The temperature ranges from 2 degrees to 16 degrees.
 all over the world.
The early weeks of November have similar weather to October, but the cold starts to hit the trails by its end. The views are clear, but the temperature begins to rise slowly. The temperature is between 1 degree to 12 degrees.

The winter Season

The winter months of January, February and December fall under the off-season time. These months have the coldest days of the year, with temperatures below freezing.

As you climb higher in altitude, the temperature decreases. However, the view of the mountains under the blue sky is clear and beautiful. Hence, the routes are less congested and trekking is possible.

December is the end of the year but the beginning of winter. This will bring extreme cold and light snow in the final weeks. The temperature ranges from 10 degrees to -12 degrees.  
January is the next month and the coldest of the three. By the middle of the week, heavy snow has blocked roads and delayed flights. The temperature ranges from 5 degrees to -17 degrees.

Although the snowfall will stop by February, it will remain cold until the middle of the week. However, eventually, the snow begins to melt and warm up. The temperature ranges from 4 degrees to -15 degrees.

Monsoon Season

June, July and August are the monsoon months and are the least preferred time for the 14 day Everest base camp trek due to heavy rainfall. During this time, walking is very challenging due to unstable weather.

Incessant rains have made the paths in the low-lying areas slippery and muddy. Also, chances of flight cancellations are high, making it a challenge to get in and out of the mountains.

The rains only start from mid-June, so you can trek on dry trails in the earlier weeks. Later, the clouds and humidity start to become uncomfortable. The temperature ranges from 11 degrees to 5 degrees.

July is the peak time for continuous rainfall, so the lower trails are difficult to walk. Also, you don't get to see the mountain scenery, but you can see many new species along the trails. Temperature ranges from 9 degrees to 4 degrees.
 It will still rain until mid-August, but gradually it dies down and dries the trails. By the end of August, you can comfortably walk the trails and get clear views. The temperature ranges from 7 degrees to 15 degrees.

Accommodation in Everest base camp trek 14 days 

Accommodation is important while trekking in the Himalayas as you need a suitable place to freshen up after a tiring day. So, every trekker wonders what the accommodation will be like during the 14 days of Everest base camp trek. The trails of the Everest Base Camp Trek offer many lodges and tea houses with very simple structure. Typically, these places offer double/twin shared rooms that come with mattresses, sheets, pillows, blankets, or quilts.

Well, our package offers tea house accommodation which has more comfortable bedrooms and facilities than lodges. Accommodation in the Everest region varies from place to place. In the lower areas you will find a warm dining area with a bonfire and an attached bathroom. But when you climb up, it becomes simpler with a standard toilet. Also, the toilets are mostly built outside, so walking at night in the cold will be a problem.

Generally, the nights get cooler as you reach higher altitudes, so sleeping bags and down jackets come in handy during this time. If you haven't packed one with you, don't worry. We provide them, but you need to return them after the trek. Also, if you want, you can rent them in Kathmandu.
If you want to stay in a room alone, we can make arrangements, but you have to pay a separate fee for the whole room. However, this is only possible during off-seasons.

Meals on 14 Day Everest Base Camp Trek

The Everest base camp trek is in the mountainous area, so you shouldn't expect to find a variety of western food there. But you will surely taste authentic Nepalese food on this trip.

Also, it is better not to consume meat dishes during the journey as it is not fresh and clean. Since animal slaughter is prohibited in the Khumbu area, the meat available there is brought from Kathmandu or Kharikhola using Yak or porters.

However, the vegetarian food served at the homestay is very nutritious and delicious. They give you enough for energy to complete a day's hiking. Each day a different breakfast and lunch menu is offered to you.

You get to eat french fries, boiled eggs, toast, scrambled eggs, momos, garlic soup, pancakes, omelets, pasta, noodles and more. Also, taste typical Nepali dishes: dal, rice, vegetable curry, pickles, and other side dishes.

Similarly, various beverages like hot chocolate, hot lemonade, coffee, tea, cold drinks are available on these trails.

How difficult is the 14 day Everest base camp trek?

Every traveler wonders about the difficulty level of Everest base camp. The route to Everest Base Camp is classified as a moderate-level trek suitable for any trekker.

The trek is a bit challenging for beginners, but can be completed efficiently with required fitness. The trails take you through rocky terrain with many ups and downs.
Also, you need to be aware of climate change and altitude-related illness. The trek takes you above the 5000 meter mark, so nothing is predictable. Ascents and descents each day will be tough for newcomers.

The trek is mainly physical walking with no technical sections, so you don't need prior mountaineering experience. But it takes enthusiasm and dedication to complete a 14-day trek in the Himalayas.

Difficulties faced during the 14-day Everest base camp trek

Spending a week and more trekking in the mountains to reach the Everest base camp puts you through many challenges. Completing the trek requires a calm mind because of the unpredictability.

There are many difficulties that you will face during the 14 day Everest Base Camp trek, and some of them are:

Difficulty walking

Walking the EBC trails is hard work as you gain and lose elevation every day. You have to walk a lot uphill and downhill to reach your destination.

The trails are pretty good and well maintained, but still, it's rough, treacherous and rocky. Walking for hours on end can lead to sore feet, sore knees and even blisters without proper footwear.

Altitude sickness

By far, altitude-related illness is the most common difficulty aspect during the Everest Base Camp trek. You travel above 3500 meters altitude, so the chances of AMS are high, making it more challenging than your usual trek.

Oxygen levels decrease as you hike higher in altitude. Therefore, low air pressure in high mountain areas can affect human health. Altitude sickness is a risk at the altitude you hike.

The 14-day Everest base camp trek starts at an altitude of 2800 meters and goes up to 5500 meters. Without proper care and travel plans, the risk of altitude sickness increases.

So if you experience symptoms like headache, nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, vomiting, difficulty sleeping, inform your guide immediately. You need to stop your walk at such times and rest in place or head down.
However, not everyone suffers from AMS as it often depends on a person's body's ability to cope with a new environment. But don't be over confident and ignorant as it can lead to fatal situation.

Length of Trekking in Everest

The overall length of the Everest base camp trek is 130 km, while walking on a guided trek. The journey is quite long as one has to walk 15 km every day for the next 9 to 10 days on the Himalayan routes.

Each day you walk 5 to 7 hours over rocky, flat, paved, gravel, and sometimes snowy terrain. When you combine landscapes with steep climbs and descents, it becomes more challenging.

Long walks are difficult for beginners, as they have no prior knowledge of the trails. So, they can tire quickly, and leg cramps will slowly wear down the whole group as well.

Everest Base Camp Trek Weather and climate

Mountain climate is not always suitable for trekking. If you travel during peak seasons, this may not pose much of a challenge. But if you travel in off-seasons, it's a different situation.

Weather and climate can be unpleasant for Everest Base Camp trek in monsoon and winter. Trekking in the upper areas is difficult in winter due to heavy snowfall and road closures.
Similarly, it is difficult to trek in the lower part during monsoon due to incessant rain. Also, dark clouds are covering over the peaks blocking your mountain views. During these seasons the routes are slippery, wet and muddy, making them challenging and exciting.

Congested routes

Peak season is considered to be the best time, as is the off-season with terrible weather, so there are crowded roads. In spring and autumn, people from all over the world visit Nepal to reach the base of Everest.

You'll find travelers like you at every destination and approach, so adjusting won't be easy if you're a peace-loving person. You may not have any privacy and wait for a long time to click nice pictures.
Sometimes you get stuck behind other trekkers because of the trail. Many people travel in large groups with guides and multiple porters which makes cheap trip cost and in the group would be more fun.

High altitude cough

High altitude cough is also known as Khumbu cough, and is another common problem that trekkers face during the trek. The exact cause of whooping cough is still unknown, but it is common above 3000 meters altitude.

Many believe that cough is usually caused by bronchial irritation caused by dry and cold air. The cough becomes violent with increasing height and hurts like hell. Also, breathing through the mouth worsens the condition, so it's best to wear some kind of mask.

P.S. Make sure to wear something to cover your mouth, but it shouldn't be too tight. Also, take cough drops or candies to help ease your throat.

Lukla flight delay or cancellation

There are other alternative routes, but flying from Kathmandu to Lukla is the most popular way to enter the Khumbu region. This is the shortest route to reach the entrance of Mount Everest, so almost all trekkers start their trek from this place.

But you should know that there are limited flights available between these points each day. Also, flights operate only in the morning to avoid high winds, poor visibility, and low clouds.

Therefore, in bad weather conditions, there is a high possibility of delays and cancellations. Sometimes there are delays due to the increase in air pressure at Kathmandu airport.

Accommodation in Everest Base Camp Trek

Accommodation may not be a significant problem, but it causes difficulty during the Everest base camp trek. This is a primary problem if you are traveling during peak times due to the crowds.

The lodges and tea houses along the route are also packed with trekkers. If you don't have a reservation, you will have a hard time finding a room upon arrival. Thus, many travelers camp outside or sleep on kitchen floors and lobbies.
Although less crowded in winter, many lodges are closed due to heavy snowfall in the upper regions. So, you may have to settle in any open lodges for the night. Therefore, we always recommend booking in advance due to these reasons.

Outdoor toilet

Outdoor toilets may not sound attractive, but you need to adjust according to the situation. There will not always be toilets available on the routes, so this will be your only option.

However, most areas have western-style toilets, but they may not be as clean as you expect. Also, squat toilets are more common in rural areas, so if you are used to this style, it will be difficult for first-timers to use.

High prices

As you know, the Everest Base Camp trek takes you through rocky terrain, but the Himalayan regions are still undeveloped. Therefore, the prices of goods and services are high due to scarcity and lack of infrastructure.

The Himalayan people depend on porters and animals for transport as they are the only means of transportation. They carry produce from the lowlands on foot to shops and lodges.

Because of the hard work and rare produce, everything in the Himalayas costs double the regular price. A basic bottle of water also costs $1 to $2 in the upper regions. You will also find many snacks, but their prices are higher than their normal prices. Also, lodges charge you extra for services like hot water, hedging equipment, etc.

No ATM or exchange services

As you know, the Everest region is still undeveloped, so there are no banks, ATMs, or money exchangers available at the upper reaches. The last ATM of this trek is found at Namche Bazaar; After that, you will not find any position and need to pay cash for the rest of the trip. Also, ATM machines are sometimes not in service at Namche Bazaar and Lukla, so it is better to withdraw enough money in Kathmandu.

Things to know before trekking in Everest Region

Drinking water and tablets

Your body will lose water quickly when traveling at high altitudes, so you need to keep yourself hydrated. It is recommended to swallow 4 to 5 liters of liquid in any form (soup, juice, water) every day. Staying hydrated will help you avoid muscle soreness, dehydration, and altitude sickness.

However, one bottle of water may not be enough for the whole day, and there are few shops available along the routes. So, at such times, you may have to drink from natural sources which may be unsafe.

Your body is not used to freshly boiled water, so some passengers may suffer from diarrhea or stomach aches. So, to avoid these mishaps, you should carry purification tablets or iodine with you.
The purification tablets  kill harmful bacteria and make your water drinkable. But if you are still unsure about water, you can buy extra bottled water at the lodges or when you come to the store.

Acclimatization in EBC Trek

Acclimatization is the most important process when visiting high-altitude locations. If this is your prime time in the mountains, it's best to add more than one rest day to adapt and cope with the changing conditions.

AMS is a major hindrance during the Everest base camp trek and its symptoms usually appear after reaching the altitude of 2500m. So, proper acclimatization reduces the chances of altitude-related illness.

The 14 day Everest base camp trek takes about two weeks to complete. Thus your itinerary should have at least two adaptations. It helps you adjust to the altitude in a high environment.

You don't rest or sleep during attunement but instead, move around and familiarize yourself with the current environment. So, on this holiday, take a trek to the nearby hills and high altitude villages.

Choose an itinerary with longer days.

Generally, the Everest Base Camp trek can be completed in 7 to 16 days. But it is better to choose an itinerary with longer days as it gives you time to adjust to the altitude.

Moreover, the 7-day itinerary was designed for travelers who are eager to visit the Everest region but have limited holidays. It is mainly suitable for professionals who have prior trekking experience as they can proceed without acclimatization.

However, if you are a first-timer, we recommend choosing an itinerary that is at least 14 days long. The longer the days, the less complicated the trek will be for you. An extended schedule has more acclimation days, shorter walking hours, more tour time, more common leg cramps, knee pain, and AMS.

Carry a water bottle

Never forget to pack your water bottles during the trek, as this is the most important factor of your trip. You will find bottled water along the routes, but they are expensive, and shops are rare. 

You won't be able to find shops for another two to three hours from your final destination, so bringing your bottle helps at times like this. If you can, it is better to carry two bottles as you will have more water for the journey.

Also, thermoses can be useful as you can carry hot water in them to keep your body warm. You can fill hot water at the lodges, but they charge separately for it.

Wear the good shoes

Your trekking shoes will determine how your trip will be as the Everest Base Camp Trek Trail takes you through remote and rugged terrain. So, it is important to bring suitable footwear to traverse these challenging routes.

You will walk for several hours and cover a certain distance each day, so be sure to check the shoes before taking on the trek. Please bring tight shoes as these can cause blisters that make it difficult to walk for long periods of time.
If you're buying new shoes, make sure they fit and try them on a few times during the hike. Your shoes should be durable, breathable and comfortable. So, invest well before packing your shoes.

Advance Trip booking

No matter what season you're traveling in, always make sure to book your rooms and flights in advance. This will mainly come in handy during peak seasons when you won't find any room or seats in the place.

Sometimes booking in advance saves you money as many offers are available from time to time. Also, arrival rooms during peak seasons cost more than rooms booked in advance.

Eat nutritious food

You should eat balanced and carbohydrate-rich food during the trek. The lodge and tea house provide you with typical Nepalese food which will give you enough energy to complete the hike.

You need to eat a lot of food and not skip any food as you burn high calories while walking up and down the paths. However, avoid meat because they are frozen and not fresh.

Don't hide your health problems.

Reaching the base of Mount Everest is the dream of many trekkers. So people hide their health problems for fear of stopping their travels, which is a mistake.

You should never lie about your health because it will be fatal to your life later. Always let your guide or companion know if you face any difficulties like breathing problems, deafness, etc.

Permits required for Everest Base Camp Trek

People often ask us whether they need a permit for the Everest Base Camp trek or not. Well, you do because, without an entry pass, you cannot enter the Everest region for trekking, even for local people need entry pass.

For Everest base camp trek, you need to carry two permits, Khumbu Village Permit and Everest National Permit.

Permit of Khumbu Rural Municipality

This permit is required to enter the Khumbu region and can be purchased from Lukla or Monzo. For foreigners, it costs NPR 2000 (USD 20) per person for the first four weeks and NPR 2500 (USD 25) thereafter. However, this permission is not available in Kathmandu.

Sagarmatha National Park

The trekking route to Everest Base Camp passes through Everest National Park, so this permit is required to complete the trek. You can get this pass from the entrance of Monzo or from the tourist service center in Kathmandu.

Permit fee is NPR 3000 (USD 30) per person for foreigners, NPR 1500 (USD 15) per person for SAARC and NPR 100 per person for Nepalese. Prices quoted do not include 13% VAT.

14 Days Everest Base Camp Trek Cost

Everest Base Camp Trek costs from $1250 to $4500 depending on services, outfitter and route. And our 14 days Everest base camp trek is very affordable compared to other packages.

Our package covers most of the details like guide, food, accommodation, porter and more. But it doesn't cover your personal expenses, so you have to carry between $15 to $25 for each day of the trek.

Be sure to carry equivalent currency as they do not have money exchanges, ATMs or banks. You'll need to bring cash to cover your bar bills, hot showers, snacks, phone or camera charging, and more.

Cultural tips for Nepal

The hilly parts of Nepal are still culturally conservative, so they are not fully aware of western culture. However, the Himalayan people of the Khumbu region respect and are open to other cultures.

But it would be better to give them equal respect keeping in mind their manners. You should not kiss on the cheek or hug new people as gestures, point fingers at things or people, whistle indoors, and more.

Also, while walking the trails, you will see men, women and children dressed in their traditional attire. You don't need to wear the same clothes, but it will be better if you bring clothes that cover your shoulders and knees for the trek. Also, men should not go shirtless around the village.

Training is required for the Everest base camp trek

There is no technical section in the Everest Base Camp trek, but you can do fitness training for this trek. You need great stamina and a calm mind for the trek. So, you can do courses like walking, endurance, and cardiovascular to increase your physical and mental strength.

A short walk

If this is your first time hiking in the mountains, a short walk can help your body adjust to walking longer distances. This will help you break in your new shoes and understand the stress on the knee during the trek. Before the actual trip, you can go on 3 to 5 hikes that last around 5 to 7 hours for training.

Cardiovascular conditioning

Cardio training is essential because it prepares your body to deal with a prolonged lack of oxygen. This practice will keep you out of breath on the trails.

Exercises like running, cycling, walking up and downhill, stair climbing, swimming are all for cardiovascular training. You can also carry weight packs on your courses to get used to the weights.

You can do this training for half an hour every day for 3 to 4 weeks before the actual trek. It helps build overall strength in your legs, abdominal areas, upper and lower back.

Mental state

Many trekkers are unaware but mental stamina is as important as other factors. Some days of this trek are relatively tough, so you need to have the right mindset to push through it.

Mental stamina is something that keeps you active even when your body is tired. So, if you have determination and willpower, it will help you overcome any obstacles.

Travel insurance

Before embarking on a trek, it is highly recommended to have travel insurance for your protection. The insurance should be able to cover your medical expenses and helicopter rescue in case of emergency.

It will help if you ensure that the insurance covers accidents during trekking above 5000 meters as most companies do not provide high altitude protection. Also, they need to have a helicopter evac to take you to the nearest hospital.

Communication facilities on this Trek:

These days, there are enough communication facilities on this trek, most of the local villages have local telephone booth phones thus if required, you can easily communicate with your friends and family, however, the cost is slightly expensive, 1-2 $ per minute. Nowadays, during the clear days, reception of Nepalese cell phones is on throughout the trail, your guide will have the cell phone on the trip. And most of the teahouses in the mountain has WI-FI facility with the cost 1-5 Dollar. However, sometimes cell phones or the internet may not work for a few days so please be prepared for that.

Best Guide You Could Choose!!

Rewati is an absolutely incredible knowledgeable, and efficient guide. He went above and beyond to make sure that I had an amazing trip from the time I met him until I boarded my flight. I went to Nepal by myself and only had a small amount of time to explore. Rewati planned out my entire time along the trek and I could not have been any happier! Along the trek Rewati was giving other guides advice on where to stay/eat and even helped out another guide who was on EBC get his clients who were sick life flighted out. Needless to stay he knows what he is doing and is the safest person you could choose as your guide! In addition he was incredibly flexible with the plans and has lots of friends along the treks. He was able to coordinate two drivers to get us off the mountain back into town while another friend I met took a bus and was car sick the entire time (3hrs). If you are going to Nepal Mountain Magic Treks is the absolute best and I would recommend to everyone!!

We have just finished our 14 day Everest Base Camp Trek and have had the most amazing experience with this Mountain Magic Treks. Our Guides Khem and Kumar always went out of their way to help us and make sure that we were happy with everything. They made a special effort to help those in the group that were struggling with the altitude or other illnesses and make sure we could still achieve what we had set out to do. We had a group of 4 and all of us have been extremely pleased with the service provided and it has been an experience that we will treasure forever. If anyone else is considering using Mountain Magic Treks as their company I would 100% recommend, as it is a local company and the guides and porters are all amazing!

Had a great time doing the EBC trek with our guide Rewati who was extremely friendly and experienced! No regrets choosing MountainMagicTreks as Rewati made the whole experience very smooth and used his expertise to help us navigate some tricky sections of the trek. Although weather made it difficult for us to get to the top, we still had the best time up in the mountains. Would recommend Rewati and his company to anyone interested in doing a trek, whether short or long.

Absolutely incredible experience. Rewati and his team were fantastic. Completed this bucket list item while meeting some incredible people and being very well taken care of. From the moment Rewati picked me up from the airport till he dropped me back again everything was taken care of. If I asked for anything it was done. The trek was incredible but onerous and I was ready for some luxury on my return to Kathmandu - Rewati arranges a 5 star hotel for me with minimal notice. I highly recommend mountain magic treks, Rewati and his team.

Best guide for EBC

Travelled to Nepal from Sydney, Australia with one friend and connected with Rewati for the EBC trek. He's a phenomenal guide who's very experienced and friendly! He knows what he's doing and also cares a lot about his clients. I really recommend anyone who thinks of doing any treks in Nepal to go under the guidance of Mountain Magic Treks.

An awesome experience!

We had the chance to have Rewati as a guide for the EBC trek. He was very efficient, had a lot to explain about the nature and the history along the trek and was very friendly! We ended up liking him so much that we decided to continue for another trek right after, the Annapurna base camp trek. Very good experience, I definitely recommend him!

Trip of a lifetime to Everest Base Camp!

Went to Everest Base Camp in April/May 2023 with Mountain Magic Treks. Trip of a lifetime with every day special and unique. If you go on this trip it will change you in many more ways than you thought possible.

The guides and porters provided outstanding service and could not be faulted. Looking forward to seeing them again next year when we book a new trip

Absolutely Fantastic

We went to Everest Base Camp April 2023 with Mountain Magic Treks. The moment we cleared customs 11:30 at night, Rewati was waiting. I cannot stress enough the professionalism and service offered by Rewati and his team. Kesap and Raj our Porters were two of the most helpful people I have ever met, trekking with us the whole time. The accommodation, food and advice, before, throughout and after the trek was excellent. I highly recommend Rewati's Company, Mountain Magic Treks.
