One thing that remains constant during the Everest Base Camp trek is the daily routine. Each day starts and ends similarly, providing a sense of structure and comfort amidst the rugged terrain. Beginning at 6 or 7 am, the group meets for breakfast in the lodge's dining room. Breakfast is pre-ordered the night before to ensure timely service.
Following breakfast, the porter takes care of the duffle bag, leaving you with just a day pack filled with essentials like water, sunscreen, and snacks. The day's hike is then led by your knowledgeable guide, who highlights the day's key features before you hit the trail. We take a break for lunch at a small settlement along the trail and then continue the journey toward the next overnight lodge.
At the lodge, we wind down by socializing with other trekkers or writing in our diaries. The guide will then outline the upcoming route and landscape over dinner, which is pre-ordered to your preference. Don’t forget to order breakfast before heading off to bed for the night.

In terms of difficulty, the trek to Everest Base Camp is challenging due to the high altitude and rugged terrain. The trek covers a distance of around 130 km (81 miles) round trip and involves several steep ascents and descents, including the famous climb up to Kala Patthar at an altitude of 5,545m (18,192 ft).
Trekkers will also need to cross suspension bridges, rocky paths, and uneven terrain, which can be physically demanding. The Everest base camp trek is accessible to people with good physical fitness and no serious health issues. Trekking experience is not mandatory, but it can be helpful to have prior hiking experience to prepare for the trek.
The high altitude and potential for altitude sickness make the EBC trek challenging. Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when your body struggles to adjust to the decreased oxygen levels at high altitudes. The symptoms can include headache, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and shortness of breath.
To minimize the risk of altitude sickness, it's important to acclimatize properly by spending a few days at different altitudes before reaching the highest points of the trek. You have to stay hydrated, avoid alcohol and smoking, and listen to your body & rest when necessary. In case of severe symptoms, descend to lower altitudes immediately.
Solo travelers can join one of our fixed departures for Everest base camp trekking or opt for a private trek with us. Fixed departures are group treks, so you will be joined by other travelers from around the world. If you like making friends and socializing, this will be a perfect option for you.
For travelers who prefer trekking alone and have their own schedule, you can go for a private trek with us. A private trek will allow you to trek solo with an expert guide and a porter. As the Everest base camp trek solo is banned from 1st April 2023, this is the best you get close to trekking alone to the lap of the highest mountain in the world.
Everest Base Camp is located in the Khumbu region of Nepal, which experiences four distinct seasons: spring (March to May), summer/monsoon (June to August), autumn (September to November), and winter (December to February). The weather and climate conditions can vary greatly depending on the season. Spring and autumn is the best time to do Everest base camp trekking.
Spring is the peak trekking season in the Everest region as the weather is generally dry and mild with moderate temperatures. The daytime temperature can range from 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F), and the nighttime temperature can drop to -10°C to -5°C (14°F to 23°F) at higher altitudes. However, it can be quite windy and dusty, and there is a possibility of occasional snow or rainfall. Spring decorates the entire trail with blooming flowers and teeming vegetation.
This season brings the monsoon rains to the region, making the trail muddy and slippery. The daytime temperature can range from 15°C to 25°C (59°F to 77°F), and the nighttime temperature can drop to 0°C to -5°C (32°F to 23°F) at higher altitudes. We do not recommend the Everest base camp trek in the summer/monsoon season due to the heavy rainfall and the possibility of landslides and flooding. The Lukla flight is also frequently delayed and canceled because of bad weather.
Autumn- September to December is another peak trekking season as the weather is dry and stable with clear skies and great visibility. The daytime temperature can range from 10°C to 20°C (50°F to 68°F), and the nighttime temperature can drop to -10°C to -5°C (14°F to 23°F) at higher altitudes. This is the best season to enjoy the stunning mountain views and experience the local culture. Likewise, you may also get to see the biggest festivals of Nepalese people in this season.
There are several tea houses and lodges along the Everest base camp trekking route that provide accommodation to trekkers. These lodges offer basic rooms with a bed, blankets, and pillows, and most of them have shared toilets and washing facilities. Some lodges may also offer hot showers for an additional fee. Carry a sleeping bag for added comfort and warmth. Our team will book clean and comfortable accommodations for you to spend nights during the trek.
Most lodges along the trekking route offer a wide range of meals, including Nepali, Indian, and Western cuisine. The meals include breakfast, lunch, and dinner and are served in a communal dining hall. Popular dishes include dal bhat, momo, and noodle soup. Stick to vegetarian options as they are safer and less likely to cause stomach problems. We also recommend you bring energy bars or snacks for extra energy during the trek.
Travel insurance is essential for the Everest base camp trek as it provides coverage for any unexpected medical emergencies, trip cancellations or delays, and other unforeseen circumstances that may occur during your trip.
The Everest base camp trek is a high-altitude trek, and the risk of altitude sickness, injuries, and accidents is always present. In case of any medical emergencies, travel insurance can provide coverage for medical expenses, emergency medical evacuation, and repatriation. Make sure that your insurance policy includes coverage for high-altitude trekking and air evacuation, as some policies may exclude coverage for such activities.
Foreign visitors to Nepal need a visa to enter the country. Visas can be obtained on arrival at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu or the land border crossings with India and China.

Likewise, the backpack weight limit is 5 kg.
3: Tips: Tipping is a common practice in Nepal's travel industry. It's customary to tip your guide and porters at the end of the trek. The amount of the tip depends on the quality of service provided, but a general guideline is to tip 10% of the total cost of the trek.
4: Charging: Charging facilities are available at most tea houses and lodges along the trekking route. You can also bring a portable power bank and extra batteries for your electronic devices, as the charging facilities may not always be reliable and cost you some extra bucks.
