Geographically speaking, Everest Base Camp Trek is a journey between Nepal and the Tibetan plateau.
You can say Everest Base Camp Trek is the perfect trekking region to shoot photos in the world. It has what your country does not have. It is a trekking region that has a beautiful green forest and snow-covered mountains. There are foothills from where you start your trek and see the trekking trail in front of you as well as the one you have done previously. After overcoming what you can call walking challenges, there are moraines and glaciers that had been formed in course of time that needs to be respected from the bottom of our hearts, the greatest appreciation you can ever show to amazing landscapes of nature.
Travel Max Guide has swallowed all the corners of the Everest Trekking region and takes you to the base of the world’s highest mountain or to the highest elevation you occasionally reach in your lifetime. The trekking trail makes you sweat, but during this time, you will have a company of a helpful guide and a porter, who will be walking along with you or in front of you, carrying your belongings up to 30 kg (shared with two trekkers), telling you in a remote trekking region he has walked this place many times.
Everest Trekking is also the showcase of the Sherpa cultures that you see in their lodges and on the trekking trails. It is also a journey to the suspension bridges and huge boulders that have stood against the challenges of time and that had been formed naturally millions of years ago when two countries Nepal and India collided.
The quickest and fastest way to start Everest Base Camp Trek is from Lukla, the only place in the Everest region to have an airport so far.

Add extra days to your Everest Base Camp Trek to be on the safe side
Very well, you know the trek takes place in the mountainous region, and the Lukla domestic airport lies on the top of a hill. The weather over there is bound to change. As a result, the Lukla flight might delay your international flight indirectly. So, it would be a wise decision to add some extra days to Everest Base Camp Trek.
The service of Travel Max Guide includes accommodation and meals, including coffee and tea. But you should pay for beverages like beer and soft drinks. Tipping is expected by a trekking guide and a porter, and how much you should tip is completely up to you?
With tea and coffee, you start your day. After that you will have your breakfast, then your trek starts either from 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. Walking uphill and downhill, you will reach from one village to another. Lunch, tea, and coffee will be provided at the best lodges by a guide along the trekking trail in villages. Dinner will be served from 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. in the next village.
If you have blood pressure, no problem, you can buy its medicine in Nepal. Besides this, you should build your confidence by walking uphill and downhill. Since you live in a city, you should go jogging for at least one month. Walking on the plain also builds up your confidence. In addition to this, you should have a positive attitude because you are going to head to one of the most underdeveloped countries in the world.

Overall excellent with much personal attention by the Company Owner. Good guide and porter. 3 Passes trek had fewer folks than the standard EBC trek which was what I wanted and it worked out well. Renjo La Pass was the highlight with the best view of Everest.
In my 2 week stay, John was very professional and took me around to experience all that Kathmandu and surrounding areas has to offer. Sites were seen and many locals were met through John’s network. He is a kind man who will take care of any issue no matter how big or small. I highly recommend his company for any travel needs you may have.
I was in Nepal for the Everest Base Camp Trek. Outstanding sceneries and good hospitality. On the way to the base camp, I got an opportunity to visit Bthe uddhist monastery as well as got some information about Buddhism. That was great. Our guide and porter were awesome. Very kind and helpful. Thank you, TMG.
Trekking with Travel Max Guide was an amazing experience. My selection of a trip and the company were excellent and of a right decision. In each moment of my walk, I came across adventure and discovered something new. I remember my first step on the Everest Base Camp. The view was spectacular. Passing through the Sherpa communities and staying in Namche Bazaar is unforgettable. I miss the trip very much. Anyway, thank you so much for your service while I was in Nepal. See you next time for the Annapurna Circuit Trek.
Originally from the United State of America from the city of Los Angeles where life is busy and rush. I made a trip with TMG. It’s a new experience than I excepted. I found Nepalese people really welcoming. They really love tourists. While trekking in the Everest region, I got time to spend with nature, gained plenty of ideas of culture and tradition from the Himalayas. The trip was totally mind-blowing. TMG has a good team spirit and is dedicated to serving guest and trekkers.
The trip price we have mentioned is an inclusive price and includes transportation, accommodation, meals during the trek, and government taxes, including guide service and porter. For personal expenses the money you should bring is USD 500, and you have to exchange it into Nepali currency in Kathmandu before trekking.
No, because we have to pay to the hotel, transportation company, guide, government, and porter. For some trips, we have to book air tickets. We have to book all of these in advance. That is the reason, why we do not refund.
Only if you are doing a private tour (private trek), you can add extra days. If you are trekking in a group, then this is not possible. Because in a private tour, you have chosen your own date, and you can trek in the way you have decided, we mean to say, there will be you or your family or friends, no outsiders.
There will be other people in the group, but we do not tell you about their personal information, but of course, we can say the number of people in the group.
Nepal is the safest trekking destination in the world because you will be with a trekking guide and a porter. Lodges are safe, and our guide always gives paramount importance to your safety.
There is no such age limit because we have had families who trekked with us with their kids like 9 years old as well as senior people aged 70.
If you are seriously affected by altitude mountain sickness, then you will be flown to Kathmandu for treatment.
. Hepatitis A · Hepatitis B · Typhoid · Malaria · Rabies
We would like to recommend you this diet rather than meat because in the mountainous regions there are no fridges to store meat.
If it is urgent, then you should find some privacy on the trail and pee.
Yes, you can charge, and you have to pay $1 to $4 an hour for charging.
C or D type outlet (adapter). Ask your guide, you can buy an adapter at a cheap price in Kathmandu.
Tea houses might charge you from USD3 to USD 10 for Wi-Fi, and another option is to get a Nepal Telecom SIM card or Ncell SIM Card. You can also use your guide’s mobile for an international if you reimburse him.
Yes, you can at a small fee, especially when you acclimatize.
In Nepal, many people still use cash; this does mean there is no ATM. You will find ATM in the main cities of Nepal, including Kathmandu and Pokhara. We would like to recommend you to exchange USD into Nepali currency before trekking.
You must be 100% physically fit, that means, you should not have acute health problem nor chronic health problem.
Most of the time, we have the first time trekkers, and they are doing good. So, you do not need to have any experience to do a trek, but we do recommend you jogging, swimming, and walking before coming to Nepal for it. Previous experience will be a plus point.
It is a sickness caused due to the lack of oxygen at a higher altitude in the mountainous region, and one of the ways to overcome it is to drink plenty of water. The other is descending to a lower altitude, and the medicine you can take to fight against it is Diamox (acetazolamide).
Yes, the trek runs. We do not charge any extra money for a solo trekker.

Yes, it does, and the rescue is done through helicopter, and the cost of the rescue operation is likely to be from USD 2500 to 3000 USD per person. If there is a group rescue operation, then the cost is likely to be USD 500 per person.
Tourism is the main source of income for the guides, porters, and hotel owners in Nepal, so we believe that the Himalayas should be protected not only for this generation, but also for the future generation. Every trek that TMG runs focuses on taking care of the ecological aspects and works with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP).
It is a sickness caused due to a lack of oxygen at an altitude of 2000 m plus. It affects some trekkers easily, but to some, it does not. Out of 10, one is affected by Altitude Mountain Sickness. It can be life-threatening. Travel Insurance is a must.
It is an opportunity to combine challenging mountain trail, unique culture and stunning mountains that are famous in the world. It is also an opportunity to trek to the Everest Base Camp Trek and the Annapurna Base Camp, and other famous treks of Nepal are Langtang Trek, Manaslu Trek, Kanchenjunga Trek, and so on. It is also overcoming Altitude Mountain Sickness.
When you decide to trek, trek with a company that likes to take your responsibility, and that has licensed and experienced trekking guide. Please do not throw bottles in the river while you are trekking in a remote place.
During trekking, you will spend your night in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name for a lodge because trekkers and climbers gave this name 40 years ago because it used to sell only tea then. Now they also sell meals as well as provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. The old name tea house is still used by the trekking agencies in Nepal. Hence, the name tea house trek. Tea house differs from village to village where you are going to spend your night. Some have attached bathrooms as well as running a hot water facility, while others have only basic facilities, that is, you have to share a toilet and a bathroom with others. This is so because they are located in a high altitude and the remotest area. Some provide dormitory-style accommodation, but they also provide you a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, you must have your own sleeping bag. Homestay trek is different from a tea house trek because, in the former, you will spend your night in a home and eat meals with the family members. It is just like staying in your own home.
Yes, it will operate on the day it is scheduled, except in the event that is beyond our control, such as political issues and natural disasters that will create undesirable travel conditions.

Trek legally. If you trek independently, you are not allowed to take any staff by law. You need for this a Trekking Agency, the sole authorized to employ staff for foreign trekkers. Do not hire staff or “independent guides” through hotels, unless they have a Trekking Agent license or offer this service through an affiliated Trekking Agent. â€¢ Please make sure you take all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants, to the nearest dustbins. Pollution and lack of trash management in the villages on the treks – including trash-clogged rivers and mounds of discarded beer bottles.
Before the departures check that your travel insurance covers trekking activities and the conditions. Be aware that some insurance companies view even walking in the mountains as “mountaineering” and will not provide coverage. Most reputable trekking agencies will require proof of rescue insurance before you start on your trek. It would be very costly to pay a helicopter rescue at 5000 meters. Some insurance policies, in fact, most, will not cover you over 4000m.
Always carry a head torch/lamp, water, some food, and a mobile phone with helicopter evacuation number, local police station and nearby health post in case of emergencies.
Please read up extensively on Altitude sickness. Be familiar with the symptoms and do not ignore them. Be sure to keep to a conservative ascent schedule and drink plenty of fluids. If you or anyone in your party begins to experience symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS), do not ascend any further, and if they do not improve, then descend to a lower altitude. Carry some Diamox (acetazolamide) pills, easily found in pharmacies in Nepal. Diamox forces the kidneys to excrete bicarbonate in the urine, therefore making the blood more acidic, which stimulates breathing, increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood. But note that Diamox is not an immediate fix for acute mountain sickness; it speeds up part of the acclimatization process which in turn helps to relieve symptoms. This may take up to a day or two, and requires waiting without any further rapid ascent. It is often advisable to descend if even mild acute mountain sickness is experienced. If serious sickness is encountered or symptoms of high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) or high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE) occur, descent with another trekker is A MUST. Please consult the pharmacist when purchasing Diamox and do your own research. One major thing to remember is that the body requires large amounts of water at altitude to counteract sickness so be sure to drink more than you are used to!
The treks in Nepal are suitable for a wide spectrum of experience and physical fitness. If you can walk uphill for a few hours each day, then you can find a suitable trek in Nepal. An easy trek with Nepali support (guide/porter) and teahouse accommodation is quite attainable for anyone who is reasonably fit. A longer trek, crossing high passes and into remote regions demands a higher degree of endurance. For Trekking Peaks, i.e. summiting a mountain of 5650-6500m, it is desirable to have some alpine climbing experience.
Few of the common accommodation options while trekking in Nepal are Tea Houses (Lodges) which can be found at various points on the trek. They offer dorm room accommodation and simple basic meals reflective of what the local people in the area eat. Although many tea houses and hotels in the hills and mountains are reasonably comfortable, some may not be comfortable, so it makes sense to bring a sleeping bag even for teahouse treks. Camping is another option for trekkers and it can be conducted almost anywhere in the country. Camping treks can be fully organized and supported with a team of guides, cooks, and porters to accompany you. Homestays in local villages can also be organized in few treks.
There are 33 mountain peaks in Nepal of 5,650-6,500m height classified as trekking peaks. Climbing permits for these peaks cost USD 350 for one to four members, an additional USD 40 each for the next four members and USD 25 each for the final four members. Trekking peaks require a qualified climbing guide, permits and deposits to cover camp waste disposal.
The best seasons for trekking are the dry and warm seasons, March-June and September-November. The temperature is bearable and skies are usually clear in these seasons, although the skies are foggier and the rain begins in May-June. It is possible to trek out of season, but you have to be ready for the occasional rain and leeches along the way. During the monsoon season and winters, the treks are virtually emptier.
Trekking is the most popular activity in Nepal, and travelers will be bombarded on the streets of Kathmandu and the trekking hub, Pokhara, with guides, organized tours, and gear for sale or rent. The huge variety of options allows for people of many ages and capabilities to attempt a trek in the country. While you could spend a year planning an expedition to wild and lofty places that few would dare attempt, you could also arrive in Kathmandu with no plans and be on the trail in a matter of days. With eight of the top ten highest summits in the world and some of the most beautiful landscapes which are only reachable on foot, trekking in Nepal is one of the unique experiences.
What we have said on this website, we will provide you all. We would also like to tell you that we are willing to go for an extra service. You get this service at an extra cost. Having said this, we cannot control the bad weather as well as the other thing, like bandh by the political parties. This thing will lead to a change in your itinerary, as regards this, we would like to tell you now to bring some extra cash. However, it is just like once in a blue moon because Nepal is 99% politically stable.
There is a reason for flight cancelation, and one of the most obvious reasons is the weather. Flight delay or cancelation is of temporary nature, and it is one of the most unwanted things because neither an airline nor should you fly in heavy rain, dense fog, and thunderstorm. No airline wants to strands its passenger. It is one of the most unwanted things, and everybody is concerned with their safety. To a passenger, it may be sunny in Kathmandu, but in Lukla, there might be snowfall. Therefore, they are recommended to apportion one or two days.
