Trip Overview

Overview

Everest Base Camp Trek is a story that you are going to write about the mountains that you have ever seen in your life that you have ever walked the highest trekking trail with a Nepali guide who cares for you and makes you feel at home in the world’s most adventurous place.

You can call Everest Base Camp Trek the perfect place in the world to shoot photos because it has what your country does not have in terms of beautiful nature. The place has a beautiful green forest, including an area that is not so green as you near the snow-covered mountains. There are foothills from where you start your trek, and from where you would see the trekking trail that lies ahead of you. After overcoming this walking challenge, you will come across moraines and glaciers that have been formed with the time that needs to be respected from the bottom of our hearts or that need the greatest appreciation you would ever like to show to nature.

Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to the top of the world, or it takes you to the top of the trek. The trekking trail makes you sweat, but what you will have during this time is a company of a good and faithful guide, and of course, there will be a porter, who will be walking ahead of you, carrying your belongings up to 40 kg, telling you he also loves to care you in a remote world.

Everest Base Camp Trek is also a showcase where you will see the Sherpa cultures from the beginning to the end as you stay in their lodges to spend nights having breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Everest Base Camp Trek is also a journey to the suspension bridges and huge boulders that have stood against the challenges of nature and that have been formed naturally millions of years ago, during the collision of two countries, India and Nepal.

Geographically speaking, Everest Base Camp Trek is a journey that takes place between Nepal and the Tibetan plateau because some parts of Mt. Everest lie in Tibet and some sections in Nepal.

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 until now.

Everest Base Camp Trek is only the trek that you can do in any months of the year because who knows the Everest Region better than we do base on our years of experience.

Everest Base Camp Trek is having an experience of the world’s greatest heights, being in the midst of the beautiful mountains that cannot be described in words but you can only say wow, and it is also the only trek in the world all of you can do whether you are moderate, experienced or beginner.

If you are a walker who walks in the city, and if you are a walker who is thinking of walking uphill, and then downhill, we would like to say there is nothing better than Everest Base Trek you can do in your lifetime with Nepali people who are the organizer, guide, porter, and responsibility takers.

The trekking trail of Everest Base Camp goes along with you, but it may also go along with Altitude Mountain Sickness

You may be affected by Altitude Mountain Sickness at 2000 m plus, or you may not be affected. Another point to note is you may be affected by Altitude Mountain Sickness at 4000 m plus. Suppose you are affected by Altitude Mountain Sickness, you cannot ascend to a higher altitude, and you need to descend to a lower altitude. Even after descending if you cannot overcome Altitude Mountain Sickness, then you will need a helicopter to take you to Kathmandu for treatment in a hospital. So you need to prepare yourself for this, and you can do this by doing Travel Insurance in your country. As you do the Travel Insurance in your country, look at the service the Travel Insurance will provide you during the trek in the Himalayan Region of Nepal. Please bring a copy of the Travel insurance to Nepal when you come to trek. When you sign the insurance paper in your country, please see whether the Insurance Company will pay you or not when you use the Helicopter Rescue Service at an altitude of 4000 m plus or 5000 m. This is very, very important.

Best Trekking Months for the Everest Base Camp Trek:

February, March, April, May, September, October, November, and December are some of the best trekking months. For more information, visit our page Best Trekking Months.

When it comes to accommodation in Kathmandu, you will find Travel Max Guide, the trekking company, also the synonyms to affordability and fine service in the hotel sectors in Nepal.

In Kathmandu, you are going to stay at the 3-star category hotel (Value). During the trekking, you will be spending your nights in a tea house. The tea house is a lodge or a guest house. The tea house is an old name that the trekking agency use for a lodge, and they have been using it for more than 40 years. After all, it used to sell only tea then. Now, they also sell meals and provide bedrooms for the trekkers and climbers. Hence, the name tea house trek is used. Tea house differs from village to village where you will be spending your nights. Some have attached bathrooms and running water, 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 at a high altitude and the remotest area. Some of them provide dormitory-style accommodation with a bed, a pillow, a blanket, and a bedsheet still, Travel Max Guide suggests you bring your sleeping bag.

  • Kathmandu- 2 Nights
  • Mountain Teahouse/ Guesthouse- 11 Nights

Walk miles for a good cause

Travel Max Guide is the inception of the First Act Nepal (FAN). Our team is working for a good cause. That might be a good question- there are lots of organizations working for a social cause, but why we are adding the numbers. What might be the reason? The reason is simple; we do love to share what we have. We are strongly guided by the principal, “Love Your Neighbor as Yourself.” So, we do it sincerely, honestly, and effectively.

Travel Max Guide donates a certain amount of its income to FAN. It’s a team working for the children of Nepal. Support for the Child Sponsorship Program is what Travel Max Guide would like to tell its clients. It’s just a small contribution to our children who are longing for love and support. If our small contribution can make things different, why not contribute to them. We are looking to build our communities bigger. So let’s share what we can do, let’s do what we are supposed to do from the religious point of view. Listen to your heart what these children are saying.

Volunteering opportunities

This topic is always a key point for us. And we are working on it too. If you are looking to do volunteer or engage in some kind of social work, then you can contact us.

Group trekking/ Single trekking

In a group trekking, normally, there will be a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 30. In the group trekking, there will be a trekking guide, one porter for every two trekkers, and an assistant trekking guide for 8 people. The company will run private trekking for you at your time frame and requirements.

Special events

If you are looking to make special events in any part of Nepal, such as filming, then you can count on Travel Max Guide for it, including travel documentaries, travel photography, and so on. Travel max Guide helps you in accomplishing your photography tour objective, and if you want it to happen, then you can ask any questions about it. Our photography tour comes under a special event, which is not included in the above price cost. You can send your group size, time frame, and requirements to us, and we will give you a discount accordingly.

Photography Tour

Upon your request, we can organize a travel photography tour in Nepal. On the trip normally, there will be a photographer who will lead you to the Himalayas of Nepal through the lens. If you are a photographer, or from the film industry, or like to learn photography, then you should visit Nepal because it is a perfect place for it. You can contact us for more details on it.

Some important information you should have before starting your Everest Base Camp Trek

 

Add extra days to your Everest Base Camp Trek because it pays you off

Very well, you know the trek that you are going to do takes place in the mountainous region, and the airport where you are going to land also lies on the top of a hill, whose name is Lukla Airport. The weather on the top of a hill is bound to change suddenly by becoming foggy. As a result, the Lukla flight might delay your international departure date from Nepal to your country. So, it would be a wise decision to add some extra days to Everest Base Camp Trek. For extra nights’ accommodation in Kathmandu and Lukla due to Lukla flight cancellation, you have to pay from your pocket.

Carrying extra Nepali money helps you to fulfill your personal expenses during the trekking

Travel Max Guide pays for your accommodation and meals during the trek, including coffee and tea. But you should pay from your pocket for beverages like beer and soft drinks. Tipping is expected by a trekking guide and a porter, and Travel Max Guide does not recommend how much you should tip? It is completely up to you how much you want to tip them.

How will be each of your trekking days in the Everest region?

With tea and coffee, you are going to start your day. After that you will have your breakfast, then you will be starting your trek from 7 a.m. or 8 a.m. Walking uphill and downhill, you will reach a village where you will be having your lunch. That time will be mid-day. On the way to the final destination, if you want, then Travel Max Guide will provide you tea and coffee, and you will be having your dinner in the lodge. It is also the place where you are going to stay for the night. 

Dinner will be served there between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.

Travel Max Guide needs 101% physical fitness from you for Everest Base Camp Trek

If you have blood pressure, then you should bring your medicine; even if you don’t bring it, then you can buy it in Nepal. Besides this, if you don’t have confidence, then you should build it up by walking uphill and downhill. Since you live in a city, one of the most developed cities in the world, you should go for jogging at least one month before starting Everest Base Camp Trek. Walking on the plain also builds up your confidence for trekking in the Everest region. Along with this, you should have a positive attitude because you are going to one of the most underdeveloped countries in the world. Travel Max Guide is saying this because you will be in one of the remotest regions of the world which is 101% different from your highly developed country. But it is also the fact that the trekkers love the remoteness of the Everest region by 102%.

Dinner is served around 6 PM to 7 PM. After dinner and before going to bed, we indulge in friendly conversations and discuss the experience of that day. The expedition leader/guide will brief us about the next day’s plan. After this briefing, we enjoy onboard games like monopoly, cards, and watch available mountaineering documentaries. Most of the foreigners indulge in light and fun learning of Nepalese language from our crew or read books before heading off to bed for a well-deserved sleep.

Please Note: The EBC Trek Package includes fixed departure dates from Kathmandu and can be fitted to accommodate your specific requests and schedule. Please review our designated departure dates for this trek and if they do not suit your timeframe, then let us know how we can arrange a trek that is convenient for you. The itinerary listed above is a general guideline; please be advised that it might be necessary to modify it due to external factors beyond our means including and not limited to the following: unstable weather, accessibility, and availability of lodging and campsites, unforeseen governmental, trail and ecological conditions and other circumstances beyond our control. Although it is unlikely that changes will occur that would significantly alter the original itinerary, we cannot be held accountable for the results of delays or changes beyond our control. In the event of an Itinerary adjustment or need to redirect to other trails and areas, the Leader Guide will ultimately make the final choice on the best rerouting after consulting with the group members and keeping in mind the interests of the party as a whole. If an alteration is necessary, then we will certainly do everything we can to diminish the effects.

We look forward to guiding you on the Everest Base Camp Trek and through some of the most dazzling landscapes on the planet with unforgettable Himalayan panoramas along the way!

Client Reviews

In my 2 week stay,

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.

First step in the Everest Base Camp

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.

Annapurna Circuit Trek

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.

Everest trekking in Nepal

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.

1. Insect repellent. 2. Antiseptic cream. 3. Anti-diarrhoeal drug 4. Antibiotics 5. Paracetamol 6. Skin cream for blisters. 7. Diamox 8. Multi-vitamin  9. Iodine 10. Cotton 11. Tape 12. Dettol

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.

  • Descend to a lower altitude
  • Drink a lot of water
  • Don’t go up until symptoms go down
  • Eat garlic
  • Take Diamox

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.

  • The main essentials to bring are:

  • Daypack, trekking bag pack, dry sack and camera bag
  • Few changes of clothes for the varying temperatures
  • For cold weather, hiking pants, thermals, gloves, neck warmer/scarf, beanie, a warm inner jacket and a windproof/waterproof outer jacket and down jacket are essential.
  • Water purification supplies, Reusable water bottle, and CamelBak water bladder
  • Sunscreen, Hat, sunglasses, moisturizing skin cream and lip balm
  • Few snacks, granola bars
  • A hiking stick or two
  • Waterproof case, fabric bandages such as moleskin, a headlamp, altitude sickness, and other medication
  • Camera and binoculars.
  • Hand sanitizers, toilet paper, band-aids, wet wipes
  • Extra batteries (solar chargers recommended) On the popular trekking routes, everyday supplies, such as toilet paper, soap, chocolate bars, and even basic hiking supplies can be purchased along the way, though prices rise dramatically as you go higher in elevation. Try to stock up lower down and buy locally-produced products such as fruit, biscuits, etc. Maps are easy to find in Nepal. For the more difficult treks involving mountaineering, crampons and ice axes may be required. Simpler types of crampons, which attach to the shoe using a rubber ring, are easily obtainable in the Thamel neighborhood. These are variously known as spikes, microspikes, and chains.

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. • 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.
