Essential Info

 Travel insurance

When going for a trek to the Everest region, you need to take all types of insurance. It would help if you took all the insurance for your safety. It includes medical insurance and accidental insurance. 

For the safety of our guests considering the Everest Base Camp Trek, we strongly advise them to get travel insurance. During Everest Base Camp Trekking, you will be experiencing a remote location. Therefore, we will be forced to deploy an airlift to provide you with immediate medical care in an accident or any unforeseen medical emergency (which seldom occurs).

Until travel insurance or the Passenger commits to pay the fee to pay the costs, rescue providers, particularly emergency evacuation service providers, do not get ready. As a result, travel insurance is essential when walking to Everest's base camp.

Packing List

The following is the list of the things and equipment that we will need to carry with us when you are heading on the journey. 

1. For the upper part of the body

  • Hat: You'll need a nice, wide-brimmed trekking hat to keep the sun off your face. Lightweight, simple to carry, and neck-covering styles are the best. The primary reason for wearing a hat while trekking is to protect yourself from the sun while you're out on the trail.
  • Headlamp: Along with the hat, it is better to carry a headlamp with you during the trek. Headlamps are lights that are worn on a person's head. Due to their hands-free operation, these gadgets are great for trekking and hiking. It's ideal to have your hands free when hiking so you can deal with anything Mother Nature throws at you or pull your stuff. At night, trails can be hard to navigate. These footprints generally incorporate pebbles, tree roots, twigs, and even animals and resemble an uncharted maze. These hazards can be dangerous, and having your hands free allows you to catch yourself, move obstacles, sprint, or fend off an enraged rabbit on the track.
  • Woolen Hat: When you move to higher elevations, you get a high chance of being caught by cold. So, it is suggested to carry a woolen hat with you for your protection. Not every hat is equally suitable for trekking, so it is safer to take a woolen hat; it will be available with you if you need it. 
  • Sun Protecting Hat: Day during your trial can be sunny, and the rays directly showered upon you. It will protect UV rays from entering your skin. We must be more careful regarding our heads and protect the scalp from sunburn and skin cancer. 
  • Sunglasses: As we move towards high altitude, the atmospheric layer becomes thinner, which increases exposure to harmful rays because the capacity to filter these rays becomes less. Therefore, we need to carry sunglasses to protect our eyes from harmful rays.

2. Body Part

  • Waterproof jackets and trousers: Rain on the path is always possible, especially if you intend to hike between June and September (we strongly advise against walking in the region). We recommend bringing rain gear with you as a precaution, preferably a gore-tex membrane hardshell jacket. An inexpensive pair of waterproof pullovers will typically be enough for pants.
  • T-shirt: It is suggested to wear light clothes during trekking to avoid extreme sweating and discomfort. A t-shirt is best to wear during such trips. 
  • Clothing: Layering is a significant walk component due to the considerable fluctuation in altitude and temperature. You'll be able to quickly adapt to the climate and be comfortable and safe if you can add and remove layers of clothes while trekking. If you intend on hiking during the cooler winter months of December through February, you'll want to bring some extra layers.
  • Gloves: You will need to carry your gloves with you because gloves will help protect your hands from sweat, extreme weather conditions, and other inconvenient situations that may cause discomfort and injury.

Lower Body Clothing

  • Thermal Inners: Thermal inners are insulators between your body and the surrounding cold air. They trap body heat and prevent heat loss. Use the ones generally made with polyester or give extra comfort and flexibility.
  • Trousers: A full-length pair of trekking trousers provides solid path protection, preventing cuts and scratches from prickly plants, twigs, rocks, and other hazards. This allows you to travel calmly while trekking without the sound of rustling plants and enables you to get near to animals without making a nuisance.
  • Down Jacket: One of the most significant purchases you'll make is a down jacket. On a hiking or climbing journey throughout the journey, having the correct warm, insulating layer may make or break your pleasure level. When you are heading for a trek in the Everest region, You must include a down jacket in your packing list. 

3. Footwears

  • Trekking Boots: Trekking boots are necessary as they are specifically designed to protect the foot and ankles during long-distance trekking. They are one of the essential items of trekking as they can determine a trekker's ability to walk long distances without injury.
  • Socks: A trekking sock is essential for avoiding blisters. Unlike a weak, stinking cotton sock, a hiking hose will not continually brush against the back of your foot and will give substantial protection from friction caused by your shoe. The socks maintain a constant temperature for the feet. Socks are incredibly soft and comfortable on foot.

4. Other Types of Equipment for Trekking 

  • Trekking Poles: Trekking poles intersperse your arms and shoulders into the trekking movement, allowing you to use better muscles to force yourself uphill and control your downhill. The result is an expansion in rate without an accumulation in leg soreness.
  • First Aid Kids: First aid kits are a must-have for every trekker. They help you with necessary treatment during the trial. Thus to minimize the risk of infection or injury severity, we must take it with ourselves. A well-stocked kit contains items that treat burns, injuries, scrapes, and cuts.
  • Sleeping Bags: Though we will be staying in hotels and there will be services, still take no risk and carry a sleeping bag with you. If you want the best night's sleep on the trail, it is recommended to take your sleeping bags with you.
  • Personal Bags: When going on an outdoor trek, you want to be sure that you'll be comfortable the entire time. A bag is fundamental if you're hiking a long and challenging walk. The type of trekking backpack you use will significantly impact how pleasant your adventure will be. If you're carrying many goods, you'll need a bag that distributes the weight properly, so you don't get tired soon.

Altitude Sickness and Prevention

Altitude sickness refers to symptoms that occur when your body is exposed to a higher elevation for an extended length of time.

When traveling to higher altitudes, there is a maximum chance of suffering from AMS (Acute mountain sickness).

When people are traveling and rising or being moved to a higher level fast, altitude sickness is prevalent. The lower the air pressure and oxygen levels are, the higher you climb. Our bodies can handle the change, but it will take time for them to acclimate. Preventing altitude sickness also requires staying hydrated. During your climb, drink plenty of water. Climb at a comfortable speed for you. It's also crucial to remember that even if you're taking acetazolamide, you might still experience altitude sickness. The drug will not help you if you already have symptoms. The only effective cure is to descend to a lower altitude.

So to prevent AMS, we will take two acclimatization breaks every thousand meters. We will trek at the higher altitude but sleep in, the lower to cure this altitude sickness. If we suffered from acute mountain sickness, we would take rest immediately at the same place. We will drink more liquid to stay hydrated, like soup and water, to energize. If the case starts to get worse, we will have to take rescue by helicopter.

Passport and Visa

A passport is the most crucial need when we are out on our trip. We need to take at least one copy of our passport and visa. We will get the access before we arrive. A Nepal visa is required to visit the Everest region. You can receive a ticket on arrival at the main entry points, but if you like to be prepared, you may apply for a Nepal visa ahead of time. Most essential, you must have your passport and two passport-size pictures. You'll also need to obtain a Mountaineering License (Everest climbing permit) from the Tibet Mountaineering Association if you intend to go to the advanced base camp of Everest. 

Banking and ATM

Typically our package is enclosed with food and accommodation, so, for personal use, you might need cash. However, there is less chance of getting an ATM. Therefore, you will need to carry some money before heading out for the trek. We have two ATMs on the Everest route, but this might not always work because of the satellite. Lukla and Namche Bazaar are the only two stations on the Everest Base Camp route where ATMs are available.

Guides, Porters, And Tipping System in Nepal

Our Everest Base Camp trekking guide porters will be fully insured and knowledgeable about the Everest region journey, not only Everest Base Camp. We have been helping and promoting local people from the beginning of the Everest Region Trek. For your trekking trips in Nepal, we guarantee that we will offer you outstanding guides and skilled porters.

 Local Guides are English-speaking locals who will accompany you on the path for the duration. They won't carry your baggage, but they will be able to answer your questions and provide information about the location as you go. 

It is always suggested that you take a guide with you. Because when traveling at a high elevation, you might suffer from AMS if you are not much familiarised with treks guide will be very supportive to you. 

During the journey, porters will carry your luggage for you. They speak very little English and will be unable to comprehend any inquiries you may pose. To help you travel freely, you can take your porter with you to help you carry your things. 

As for Tipping, It will cost you 10 percent of the total cost. This ten percent is further distributed as 60 to the guide and forty to the porter.

Everest trek food and accommodation

Accommodation

The Everest Base Camp climb is a lodge hike. You will spend the night at a clean and pleasant lodge managed by a local family. A tiny room with two twin beds and a separate bathroom with a familiar washroom facility may be available in higher-elevation lodges. Carry a decent sleeping bag to remain warm because the lodge's blanket will not suffice. We have both luxury and basic accommodation.

 We can get luxury accommodations are Lukla, Phakding, Manjo, Namche, Everest view hotel, and Debuche. Rest at other places we can get better accommodation but not like these places.  

 Our Everest Base Camp trek package includes three meals (breakfast, lunch, and supper) during the expedition. 

Food

All meals are prepared according to the lodge's menu. Usually, there is a multi-cuisine option on the menu. Pizza, burgers, fish & chips, freshly made coffee, bakery products, and other items are available in Lukla and Namche Bazaar. Namche Bazar and Lukla have several options for food, but mostly you can only find regular food. 

The Everest view hotel provides outstanding tea and foods services to the trekkers. In addition, you may order a warm, and nutritious breakfast, lunch, or supper made using locally sourced organic ingredients. The menu ranges from western to Indian and regional cuisines.

 For breakfast, you must have traditional Tibetan bread and bread/ Chapati. There is also a large selection of hot soup alternatives. In addition, pancakes, oatmeal, muesli, and omelets are all available.

Similarly, hot drinking water is available for refilling your reusable water bottle in lodges and tea shops. (Nepali cuisine, freshly prepared and sanitary)

Booking terms and conditions

For booking we are flexible, but when you confirm you have to pay 25 percent and the rest, you can spend on arrival. We don't have any hidden charges.

You can use a bank transfer or a credit card deposit to secure a reservation (Visa or MasterCard). Follow the instructions on the reservation form.

Last-minute booking for Everest Region Trek

We are flexible on booking. However, when it comes to last-minute cancellations, we are non-refundable. So if you want to join one of our Everest Base Camp Trek packages at the last minute, you must pay the total package price to secure your spot.

It is strongly recommended that the Client purchase termination insurance at the time of booking.

Travel Tips ( Electricity, Internet, ATM, Luggage, tipping, personal expenses)

There is no electricity in all those places, so it's better to have your backup. As for backup, we can still use battery and chargers, but you need to pay extra charges for that. In the lodges, there are charging kiosks where you may set your gadgets. But, again, you might have to pay a small fee for the service. So bring extra chargers or a solar charger with you.

There might not be internet facilities in all places for the internet so that you can use data.

You might also need to pay additional charges to use the internet facility. The internet connectivity along the trekking path is spotty at best, and it only gets worse as you climb higher. Please don't get caught up in sharing the adventure; instead, try to enjoy it as much as possible.. 

So it is recommended to have your cash for your expenses. You can use it for electricity, internet, and other additional costs like bakeries and pastries and money for tipping. Because there are no ATMs above Namche Bazar, bring extra cash to spend while walking. On the road, you may require some money to purchase more beverages, food, or amenities such as a hot shower, internet, etc. 

You ripped extra baggage for free in the hotel's locker room. Each trekker can bring up to 10 kilograms of hiking gear (carried by porters).

Tipping will not be included in the cost of our EBC trek package because it is required. However, the guide and porter anticipate some. 

Keep some cash on hand if you want to buy souvenirs, food, or beverages. Other costs, like travel insurance and foreign flight tickets, are not included in our package price. For further details, see our cost includes and exclusions section.

Lukla flight and cancellation

We have very unpredictable weather in the Himalayas, so our flight will be unscheduled some of the time. But sometimes, because of the weather, our flight will be delayed or canceled. We will have other options to take a helicopter or postpone for the next time, so better to have added one or two days after the trip to ensure your international flight wouldn't be disturbed. 

Due to inclement weather, flights from Kathmandu to Lukla/Kathmandu may be delayed or canceled for a day. Even in the finest season, something may happen. As a result, Mountain rock treks and expeditions always recommend staying an extra night in Kathmandu. If your vacation goes well, you may be able to take a Kathmandu city tour and purchase souvenirs.

If you need to cancel your journey to Lukla, we will rebook you on the next available flight. Alternatively, if you prefer to rent a helicopter to Lukla, we can assist you with that as well.

FAQs

  • Q1. Is the trek to Everest Base Camp worthwhile?

    First and foremost, this is a fantastic, classic bucket list expedition that is well-deserved. Anything of this kind must be lengthy enough to allow you to immerse yourself in the life that is the Everest region.

  • In terms of difficulty, the hike is classified as Moderate. However, the Everest Base Camp Trek for Beginners may be a little difficult. The walk, however, can readily performed with minimal physical and mental fitness. You will walk along a rugged terrain with various uphill and downhill sections.

  • To reach the highest point, take a one-day sight-seeing journey to the View Point of Kala Patthar, which has an elevation of 5545m.

  • At an elevation of 5,200 meters above sea level, EBC has a mountain plateau climate that can be frigid all year. The average temperature is -17 degrees Celsius, with the coldest months being mid-December to January.

  • July and August appear to average approximately -2°F-0°F (-16°C to -18°C) at night and probably a few degrees above this during the day. On still and sunny days, I would guess that the hottest temperature ever achieved on the summit was in the 10-15°F (-10°C to -12°C) range.

  • The Everest Base Camp has a moderate difficulty level. The journey usually takes two weeks. Although no prior trekking experience is required for the EBC Trek, the trekker should be determined and physically fit.

  • Improving cardio endurance, strength endurance, and being comfortable carrying a daypack uphill for long periods of time should all be part of your training for Everest Base Camp. You should start hiking or doing lengthy walks at least once a week at least 8-12 weeks before your adventure (focus on duration more than distance).

  • The visits are seasonal, with 42% of annual visitors arriving in October and November. March and April are also popular months, accounting for 31% of all annual tourists. However, as you can see, there are fewer trekkers in the Spring compared to the Autumn season. Given these numbers, the journey to Everest Base Camp is on a busy trail.

  • Every hiker who wishes to reach Base Camp must obtain two permits: the TIMS card and a national park admission permit.

  • The normal Everest Base Camp Trek is 130 kilometers round-trip and is divided into 12 days. It takes eight days to reach Everest Base Camp and four days to return. 12 days always includes acclimatization time and space.
