    Useful Information

    Everest Base Camp Trek Elevation/ Altitude

    Before embarking on the journey to the Everest Region, most travelers have a big question: "How high is Everest Base Camp?” You get different answers to that question as the glacier does not stay in one place and changes. The elevation of the Everest Trek journey begins from 2,860 meters in Lukla to the highest point at 5,643 meters. Kala Patthar is the highest point of the Everest Trek, from where the sight of the highest peak is astounding. All in all, the high altitude journey of Everest starts at 2,860 meters and ends at 5,643 meters at the highest altitude.

    Accommodation and Food at Everest Base Camp Trek

    EBC Trek is not a luxury tour, and you should not expect a full luxurious lodge or hotel for acclimatization. You get accommodation in a hotel (3 stars or greater) that can be on a twin-share basis. The facilities you get there are a hot shower, charging points, wifi, and good beds. Even though the rooms might not be luxurious, breathtaking views of the mountains from the hotel windows make the whole living experience worthwhile.

    The food you get on the trek around Everest depends on the teahouse lodges you go to. Dal-Bhaat is the most popular food item on the menu for dinner. You get rotis, oat porridge, cookies, and mashed potatoes for breakfast. Not only this, but there are also other varieties of fresh Himalayan food you must try during your time there. Imagine having a hot steaming dal-bhaat after a full day of the hike. Trust me. Nothing beats the thrill of making your stomach full after a long workday.

    Permits required for Everest Base Camp Trek

    The government of Nepal has imposed two kinds of permits for you to enter into the EBC. It is for the sole purpose to fund for the preservation of the beauty that surrounds Everest and other mountain peaks. As you need to enter Sagarmatha National Park to carry on the EBC journey, you must pay a certain sum of the National Park Entry Fee, just like the others. 

    Khumbu Region has been made popular on the map by some of the great mountaineers before, like Tenzing Norgay Sherpa and Sir Edmund Hillary. The municipality charges a small sum of money, the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit costing around NRs.2000 per person, to maintain the beauty and authenticity of the region.

    The two Everest Base Camp Trek Entry Permits you must have are Sagarmatha National Park Entrance Permit (NRs. 3000 per person) Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit (NRs. 2000 per person).

    Everest Base Camp Trek Cost for Nepali

    The trek cost of Everest Camp Trekking depends on the number of trekkers in a group and on the season. If it is an off-season, the trekking cost drops down a bit compared to the season when trekking is at its peak point. Most people believe the Everest Trek cost for Nepali is different from foreign trekkers. As a national, Nepalese don’t have to pay for the VISA charges and the hotels you stay in also charge you less. According to many reports, the total cost of Everest Trekking can be around NRs. 1,00,000 to 1,50,000 depending on various factors. However, if you are a Nepali and like to spend a lot, the total EBC cost can exceed.

    Note: There is nothing such as Everest Trek Cheap Price. The pricing depends on the hotels you choose to stay in and the number of days you go on a trek. However, if you choose a trekking package from a travel agency, the accommodation and the itinerary will be managed. Also, if you have many members in a trekking group, then the cost for one person comes down by a big margin.

    Drinking-Water in the Everest Base Camp Trek

    As plastic bottles are already banned in the Everest Region, bottled water is preferred in the Everest Trek.  Boiled water is the safest option available in the Everest Region, but it is pretty much expensive. However, the best options for pure drinking water during the Everest Trekking are SteriPEN and Purification Tablets. SteriPEN uses UV technology to kill 99.9% of bacteria, easily turning normal tap water into drinking water. In addition to this, purification tablets are cheap to buy and easy to carry. You can add them to the water, and they purify the water. However, the tablets take hours to work and are comparatively less effective.

    Best Time to do Everest  Base Camp Trek

    Everest is one of the most beautiful regions in Nepal to have a good time in. You can go to EBC Trek at any time of the year, but the best version of Everest comes alive during the best time. It is because of the favorable weather, easier trekking trails, and astounding views of the mountain peaks. 

    The best time for Everest Trekking is during spring (March-May) and fall (October-November). You will experience the crystal clear mountain views surrounding you with the warm love inside the snow. Not only this, you don’t have to deal with snow and rain, which can be the ultimate obstacle in the trekking journey.  However, if you want to go on Everest Trekking during the winter season, Everest Helicopter Tour can be the best way to explore the beauty of the region. It is impossible to trek in the winter season as the trails become too slippery and the temperature is extremely cold, making it hard to walk.

    Weather and Climate in the Everest Base Camp Trek

    One word that explains the weather condition of Everest Trekking is “extreme” In terms of both temperature and winds, Everest Region has extremities. December to February are the coldest months of the year, with the temperature dropping down to the freezing level. Meanwhile, the hot temperatures are in the monsoon season between July and August.

    During the spring season on Everest, the daytime temperature revolves around 15°C, whereas the nighttime temperature drops down to -1°C. It is the best time to visit EBC as the skies are clear and the temperature is not extreme. In the monsoon season, the temperature reaches a maximum of 22°C with heavy rainfall, which eventually makes the road muddy and harder to walk on. 

    The fall season is another best time to pay a visit to the Everest Region as the monsoon rain bids you a farewell with the arrival of clear skies and a soothing atmosphere. The mountain summit is easily visible, giving you that extra energy to continue trekking and have a closer relationship with nature.

    What to expect at Everest Base Camp Trek?

    Everest Trekking is all about exploring nature’s greatness from a really close perspective. Your expectations might be off the roof for your next visit to Everest, and they are obvious. Expect to witness the breathtaking views of the world’s highest peak and fall in love with nature all over again. Talking about the preparation for EBC, we make sure our trip gets completed without any problems. Unfortunately, sometimes it might not go according to the plan. At that moment, you should expect a little change in itinerary.  From the very beginning of the trek, we promise you the best trekking adventure possible, and to your surprise, you will not be let down.

    Mt Everest Base Camp Trek Difficulty Level

    Most people know Everest as it is the world’s highest peak, and everyone wants to summit it. But, it is not possible for everyone as it needs extra effort and a strong mentality.  EBC can be the best opportunity to make it to the base of Everest and see the mighty mountain up close without the need to summiting it. However, it doesn’t mean that everyone can complete the Everest Trek easily. Telling the truth, Everest Trekking is a moderately difficult trek. It requires around two weeks full of walking uphill and downhill. There can also be cases of altitude sickness for some trekkers. Some trekkers have a big question “Can a beginner do Everest Base Camp Trek?” As already mentioned, EBC is a moderate-level trek, and novice travelers will find it extremely hard to complete it. Meanwhile, if you have already gone on some treks before and know the ins and outs of the trek, the trek around Everest will be a piece of cake, but it depends on various other factors.

    Packing Checklist for Everest Base Camp Trek

    As Everest Trek brings you closer to the highs and lows of nature.  You need to take proper care of various things, from what to wear and what to take on the journey. Following are the most important things you should not forget to take on your next trip to Everest as every piece of equipment is necessary for a specific purpose.

    Guide to things not to do during the Everest Base Camp Trek

    EBC Trek is on the bucket list for most travelers around the globe. It is very much important for you as a potential trekker to know about the things you need to take proper care of to do or not to even think of trying. Following are the things you should avoid at any cost to complete your trek without any complications.

    Walking too fast

    Walking fast is a great skill to have. But, you have to make sure you don’t walk way too fast as you might get caught with altitude sickness and acute mountain sickness. It can be very hard for you to continue the trekking journey.

    Drinking too little

    When you walk for too long you sweat a lot. As a result of which, your body needs sufficient liquid to stay hydrated and continue the journey well. So, you should drink enough so that you won’t suffer from any sort of dehydration problem.

    Getting no sleep

    Sleep is the most important way of getting proper rest. Getting no sleep and partying until late at night make you fully exhausted and you won’t be able to continue the journey with the same energy and intensity.

    Trespassing the park entry point

    Whenever you go on any trek, make sure you enter there legally. There are many points around the area from where you can trespass into the trek but avoid doing that. The legal authorities can actually put you into jail for that particular deed. 

    Throwing garbage carelessly

    One of the most burning problems in the Everest Region is the bad management of garbage and wastage. Some travelers throw waste everywhere without any proper way. It leads to the park becoming extremely dirty and you may feel difficulty in performing normal things during your time there.

    Wearing new and uncomfortable shoes on the trek

    Whenever you wear new shoes it is highly likely that the shoes start pinching your feet making it extremely difficult for you to walk the hard trails. So, always make sure you don’t wear new and uncomfortable shoes because they will hurt you a lot in the long run of the journey.

    Tipping in the Everest  Base Camp Trek

    You can meet so many people during your trekking journey. During your visit to the teahouse lodges or the porters or guides who you will travel with for the whole journey. The best of all is that you can actually tip them for extra money if you love their company and service. Most travelers travel in a group and have already paid for the trekking package and don’t know the daily expenses of the porters. You can tip around 5% of the total cost for a rough calculation. However, it all depends on your wish and choice. You can ask your trek planner about the porter and guide charges. They will remember your generosity for the rest of their lives.

    FAQs
    • Q1. Is Everest Base Camp Dangerous?

      Most travelers who are willing to come to Everest want to know about the Everest trekking risks and dangers involved. As the journey is long and you have to walk for more than 2 weeks in the extremities of weather and trekking trails. Talking about the weather and the difficulty of trails, you will find it relatively difficult which also depends on your level of trekking expertise. Also, you might suffer from altitude sickness, acute mountain sickness, high-altitude pulmonary edema, and high-altitude cerebral edema. Sometimes overexertion and dehydration can also be the causes of your complications. The vast majority of people do not have huge complications. It is for that reason too, that people love to come to EBC for a good time.

    • Making a trek memorable is a tough job as it requires you to plan your journey in such a way that you have to deal with the least problems. Among various ways to complete a trek best, the main way is to prepare properly. So, how is it possible to prepare for one of the toughest yet most exciting treks in the world? You can do many things to remember your trek for good reasons.

      Following are some of the best physical and mental tips you can follow so that your trek around EBC will not take a toll on you.

      • Make a habit of walking daily at least for an hour,
      • Walk uphill and downhill,
      • Practice cardiovascular training with proper breathing exercises,
      • Meditate at least two times a day,
      • Pay proper attention to your sleep schedule,
      • Have a balanced diet and avoid eating junk food
      • Stay in the best physical shape possible
    • Depending on the itinerary, you have to walk around 5-9 km each day. The entire trek around Everest is around 130 kilometers (80 miles). Walking distance is not the major thing to worry about. The gain in elevation each day is the bigger issue here. You should be prepared and ready to adapt to it.

    • As Everest Trek is a high-altitude journey. If you are a traveler who has a good experience of trekking, then you will not face altitude sickness most likely. However, if you are a novice trekker and have not come to high altitudes before, it is highly likely that you will get altitude sickness. But you don’t need to worry about it that much. There are guides who will help you in every part of the journey.

    • Carrying cash with yourself is actually your choice. If you are coming with us as a member of the group, you don’t need to pay for the food and accommodation as you have already paid for the package. However, if you want to buy extra accessories or eat exotic dishes, you need to carry certain money. Generally,  you can carry around $500 with you to spend extra if you want.

    • It is highly unlikely that you will find money exchanges during the trek to Everest. You need to exchange money in Kathmandu before starting the Everest Trek. However, you will find ATM machines in Namche Bazar from where you can withdraw money.

    • While you are on your Everest journey, you can use any currency. But, Nepalese currency will be the best option available.
