Sometimes the flight gets canceled even at the last minute. Therefore, in such a case, we will book you the next available flight.

If the situation gets out of control, then you can opt to trek from Lukla to Jiri and drive back to Kathmandu from there. It may take another few days and you also have to get Gaurishanker Conservation Area to permit.

*Note: All the additional expenses incurred while getting back from Lukla to Kathmandu via Jiri should be covered by the trekkers themselves. The company will not be responsible for any additional charges.  

Everest Base Camp Trek difficulty

Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate grade trek that involves 6 to 7 hours of walking every day. A trekker has to be physically fit to go on Everest Base Camp Trekking. Previous trekking experience is not needed, but good health and stamina are necessary. 

Everest Base Camp Trek route follows rugged, steep, and rocky trails. Most of the trek goes through dense forests and crosses old suspension bridges. There are numerous ups & downs throughout the trek, which can make it tiring for some trekkers.

Other than the rugged route, the Everest region is not so developed. Facilities above Namche Bazar are limited. In case of an emergency situation, you may have to air evacuate. Likewise, you will not get modern comforts most of the time and have to live a very simple life for a handful of days. 

Acclimatization and Altitude Sickness

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days ascends above 5,000 meters. It means there are chances of altitude sickness if you do not acclimatize. Our Everest Base Camp Trek itinerary does have ample rest days that reduce the risk of altitude sickness.

Altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness is a common illness, trekkers usually see during a trek in the Himalayas. It is important to control AMS symptoms at the early stage to avoid air evacuation. A little care during the trek will keep you away from high-altitude sickness.

Symptoms of altitude sickness:

  • difficulty in breathing
  • nausea and vomiting
  • dizziness
  • headache
  • loss of appetite and insomnia

Inform the trek guide if you see any of the above symptoms. It may get cured with relevant medication or after spending some time at the lower elevation. As per your condition, the team leader will decide whether you can move further or not.

Preventive measures of altitude sickness:

  • You are requested to follow the guidelines of the team leader and cooperate with him to tackle the situation smoothly during altitude sickness.
  • Take your time and get enough rest before gaining any more elevation. Your symptoms must go away for you to trek further.
  • Drink at least 2 liters of water and eat a balanced diet to maintain your energy. Keeping yourself hydrated will also help to avoid AMS.
  • Do not drink alcoholic drinks or smoke as it dehydrates the body.
  • Make sure to include ample rest days in your itinerary.

Everest Base Camp Trek Solo/Private/Group

If you want to do Everest Base Camp Trek solo, then contact us anytime. We organize custom trips for travelers who want to explore the Himalayas on their own terms. During the solo trek, you will be accompanied by a professional guide and a native porter.

Best time to do Everest Base Camp Trek

Spring and autumn are the two major peak seasons for Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days. The months from March to May and October to November fall under these two seasons. Thousands of trekkers explore the beauty of the Khumbu region at this time of the year, so you may find the trail a little bustling. 

Spring and Autumn 

The moderate climate and stable weather make trekking in the Everest region in spring and autumn heavenly. The cozy days and crisp hints of cold in the air at night and morning refresh your body. The temperature ranges from 10°C to 0°C. As the sky is clear most of the time, the views are breathtaking. 

In spring, you can see the trail bloomed with rhododendrons. Whereas in autumn, the colorful fallen leaves decorate the entire trail. Moreover, if you are lucky, you may also get to be part of the biggest festivals in Nepal.

Winter (November to February) 

Trekking to Everest Base Camp in winter is possible, but not many people trek at this time of the year. The temperature drops below -10°C, and extreme cold will increase the challenges. Likewise, the heavy snowfall can block the trekking route and increase the chance of avalanches.

If you are trekking in the early winter, then the winter challenges will be slightly low. The views of the mountain in the winter are the best. Weather can get unstable. 

Everest Base Camp Trek permit

  • You will need Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit and Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit to go on Everest Base Camp Trekking. You can get these permits in Kathmandu or at Monjo.
  • Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit cost: Nrs 2000 per person
  • Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit cost: Nrs 3000 per person
  • Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit cost for SAARC nationals: Nrs 1500 per person

*Note: All the permits are included in the Everest Base Camp trek package cost, so you do not have to worry about it.


During the trek to Everest Base Camp, you will spend nights in the lodge. The best thing about trekking in the Khumbu region is you can find accommodation budget-friendly to luxurious. Our Everest Base Camp Trek package includes nice twin sharing rooms. If you want a single room, then do let us know at the time of booking.

The rooms are small and clean. The washroom may or may not come attached to the rooms. The bed will be quite comfortable, but it gets cold at night and morning, so do carry a sleeping bag. 

Food during the trek

You will eat three meals a day during the Everest Base Camp Trek. The breakfast option has toast, egg, oatmeal, muesli, porridge, soup, tea, coffee, sandwich, etc. Whereas lunch and dinner have dal bhat tarkari, curries, veggies, chapati, Tibetan bread, momo, pasta, pizza, burger, noodles, thukpa, thenduk, etc. 

Drinking water is available in the lodge. You can refill your water bottle freely. Some trekkers also carry water purification tablets to double purify their water. The meals are offered as per the menu of the lodge, so the menu can differ slightly from one place to another. Also, the western dishes might not have the same taste because of limited spices. 

Trek Responsibly

  • Do not leave your litter behind or throw trash on the trail.
  • Some high-quality Nepali brands manufacture almost the same quality of trekking clothes and gear at affordable prices. Give them a chance and buy locally.
  • Use sustainable and eco-friendly products as much as possible during the trek.
  • Carry reusable water bottles.

Trekking Insurance

Everest Base Camp Trek 14 Days is a high altitude journey, therefore travel insurance is needed to book the trip. Your travel insurance should cover air evacuation up to 6,000 meters and medical bills. Travel insurance will be your lifesaver in an emergency. As you will be traveling in a remote area, the lack of basic infrastructures makes the trek risky.

You can also add flight cancellation and theft/loss of personal property in the travel insurance if you want. You cannot buy travel insurance in Nepal, therefore get one in your home country and double confirm all the clauses.

Q1. What is the best season to do Everest Base Camp Trek?

Everest Base camp trek can be done at any month of the year. However, we highly recommend you to do a trek between September and May.  Generally, from June onwards until the end of August it’s Monsoon season with lots of rain showers and unpredictable weather. 

Well, your meals and accommodation are already included in your program. However, there are certain things you need to pay for such as Drinks, Wifi, Hot Shower, Electronic Devices charging, etc. From our previous experience with our hikers, you may be spending US$ 15 to US$ 20 Per day but depending on your expenses. You better carry Nepalese Ruppess along the trail. You can exchange in Kathmandu. 

Trekking to Everest Base Camp is a journey of a lifetime. The trip is physical but you have to be mentally prepared. You do not need to have Special training or Qualified but make sure you are able to walk 5 to 6 hours each day. We suggest you do regular Exercise and hiking before you come to Nepal for few weeks.  

In general, it is 11 Days total hiking from Lukla to Lukla including 2 Rest days during the trip. (8 Days going and 3 Days coming down.) There is a daily flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. So the total days of the trip from Kathmandu to Kathmandu are 12 Days. We have offer you Everest Base Camp -14 Days trip package from your arrival til departure.
