Trip Introduction

A trek to the base camp of the world’s highest peak is a lifetime opportunity. As such, this trek is acclaimed as one of the best trekking routes by many trekkers around the world. The trail to Everest Base Camp is filled with a magnificent view of mountains like Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), Cho Oyu (8,201m) and many more. On the Everest Base Camp Trek, you will experience heart-warming Sherpa culture and fascinating nature in the Sagarmatha National Park.

The first day of the 16-day trip starts with your arrival in Kathmandu. You will spend a day in Kathmandu sightseeing the world heritage sites in Kathmandu: Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath, Boudhanath, and Pashupatinath. After completing the preparation for the trek, you catch a flight to Lukla and start your trek. The first destination is Phakding and then onto Namche Bazaar where you stay another day to acclimatize. From Namche, you trek to Tengboche where you visit the biggest monastery in the region, Tengboche Monastery. Then, you trek to Dingboche where you spend another day acclimatizing for the final time. From Dingboche, you begin a steep trek to Gorakshep and then to your final destination, Everest Base Camp. Here, you can witness the Khumbu Glacier and Icefall among others. The next day, you head to Kalapatthar for an amazing sunrise view over mountains like the Mt. Everest (8,848m), Lhotse (8,516m), and Ama Dablam (6,856m) among many others. Next, you head back to Namche trekking through Pheriche and Tengboche. From Namche, you walk to Lukla to catch a flight back to Kathmandu. The trip comes to an end in Kathmandu specifically with your departure home. Since the trek is in the mountainous region, the best time to come is February-May and September-December since the weather is clear and stable during these months.

Visa Requirements for Nepal:

Travelers from the UK, US, and EU countries typically require a visa to enter Nepal. It is important to note that visa requirements can change, so it is your responsibility to obtain the necessary visa for your trip. We recommend checking with the nearest embassy or consulate of your destination country and any countries you may be transiting through.

You have the option to obtain your visa in advance or on arrival. However, it is advisable to apply in advance to avoid long queues at the airport. Please be aware that the Immigration Department of Nepal has suspended visas on arrival for certain nationalities. It is crucial to check if this applies to you by contacting your nearest embassy or consulate.

Upon arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will encounter three lines. If you have already obtained your visa, proceed directly to the Immigration line. If not, follow these steps:

Fill in a tourist visa form at the electronic kiosks. The machine will automatically complete the application form, take your electronic photograph, and print a paper slip. If the machine fails to read your passport, manually enter the details using the touchscreen. It is recommended to carry a passport photo with you, just in case.

Pay the visa fee at the collection counter. It is preferable to pay in cash. Remember to keep the receipt.

Present your tourist visa form, payment receipt, and passport to the relevant immigration desk to obtain your visa stamp. Double-check that you have been given the correct visa duration.

>

Vaccinations for Nepal:

While there are no mandatory vaccinations for Nepal, certain vaccines are recommended. These include tetanus, typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, cholera, Japanese encephalitis, rabies, and tuberculosis. If you are arriving from or transiting through a country with a risk of yellow fever transmission for more than 12 hours, you will need a yellow fever vaccination certificate. Some travelers may also require proof of polio vaccination. It is best to consult with your doctor or travel clinic for specific advice regarding vaccinations.

Malaria is not a significant risk in Nepal, so antimalarial tablets are usually not advised. However, certain high-risk groups may consider taking them. Additionally, dengue fever, a tropical viral disease spread by mosquitoes, is a known risk in Nepal. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis for dengue fever, so it is important to take precautions such as wearing protective clothing and using insect repellent during the day, especially at dawn and dusk.

Altitude and Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS):

Many trips in Nepal involve trekking to high altitudes where there is a risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). It is important to note that it is still possible to be affected even with well-designed itineraries for acclimatization. The Trip Notes provided will offer specific advice on AMS, and it is crucial to familiarize yourself with this information.

>

Food and Drink:

Breakfast is included throughout the trip, usually consisting of a choice of bread, eggs, muesli or porridge, and hot tea or coffee. However, the breakfast options may vary depending on the teahouses or lodges you stay at during the trek.

Lunch will be taken at teahouses along the route, and dinner will be provided at the same teahouse where you spend the night. The teahouse menus are reasonably extensive and offer a range of options, including traditional Nepalese dishes like dhal bhat (curried lentils and rice) and momos (Nepalese dumplings). It is advisable to avoid eating meat on the trek due to concerns about the handling and storage of meat in the teahouses, which can lead to stomach upsets. Instead, opt for vegetarian meals or stick to well-cooked and properly prepared food options.

When it comes to drinking water, it is crucial to avoid tap water and untreated water from any other sources. It is recommended to drink bottled water or use water purification tablets or filters to ensure safe drinking water. Hydration is key while trekking, so make sure to drink plenty of fluids and carry an adequate supply of water with you during the trek.

>

Health and Safety:

While traveling in Nepal, it is important to take certain precautions to ensure your health and safety:

Travel Insurance: It is highly recommended to have comprehensive travel insurance that covers medical expenses, emergency evacuation, and trip cancellation or interruption. Ensure that your insurance policy covers activities such as trekking at high altitudes.

Altitude Sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can affect trekkers at high altitudes. It is essential to acclimatize properly, follow recommended itineraries, and be aware of the symptoms of AMS. If symptoms become severe, it may be necessary to descend to a lower altitude.

Trekking Permits: If you are planning to undertake a trek in Nepal, you will need to obtain the necessary trekking permits. The requirements vary depending on the trekking region, so make sure to research and obtain the appropriate permits before starting your trek.

Trekking Guides and Porters: Hiring a local guide or porter can enhance your trekking experience and provide assistance in navigating the trails. They are familiar with the routes, culture, and can help with logistics. It is advisable to book through a reputable trekking agency to ensure the reliability and welfare of your guides and porters.

Personal Safety: Practice general safety precautions while traveling in Nepal. Be cautious of your surroundings, especially in crowded areas or during late hours. Keep your belongings secure and avoid displaying signs of wealth. It is advisable to carry a photocopy of your passport and important documents while keeping the originals in a safe place.

Local Laws and Customs: Respect the local laws, traditions, and customs of Nepal. Dress modestly, particularly in religious sites, and be mindful of cultural sensitivities. Seek permission before taking photographs of locals or religious monuments.

Natural Disasters: Nepal is prone to natural disasters like earthquakes and landslides. Familiarize yourself with the safety protocols provided by your trekking agency or accommodation. In case of an earthquake, remember to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” to protect yourself.

By taking these precautions and staying informed, you can have a safe and enjoyable experience while traveling in Nepal. It is always a good idea to consult with a travel expert or your embassy for the most up-to-date information and advice before your trip.

Flight Safety in Nepal:

Flight safety in Nepal has improved significantly in recent years, but it is still important to be aware of certain factors when flying within the country. Nepal has challenging terrain and weather conditions, which can make flying more unpredictable compared to other regions. Here are some key points to consider:

Domestic Airlines: Nepal has several domestic airlines that operate flights to various destinations within the country. It is advisable to choose reputable airlines with a good safety record and reliable maintenance practices. Research the airline’s safety history and customer reviews before booking your flight.

Weather Conditions: Weather can be a significant factor affecting flight safety in Nepal, especially during the monsoon season (June to September) and winter months (December to February). Fog, rain, and strong winds can lead to delays, cancellations, or diversions. Flight schedules may change at short notice, so it is important to stay in contact with your airline and be prepared for possible disruptions.

Mountainous Terrain: Nepal’s mountainous landscape presents unique challenges for pilots. Some airports, especially those in remote areas or at high altitudes, have shorter runways and are surrounded by challenging topography. Pilots with experience in mountainous terrain are crucial for safe takeoffs and landings. Be prepared for smaller aircraft when flying to remote locations.

Aircraft Maintenance: Ensure that the airline you choose follows rigorous maintenance standards. Regular maintenance and inspections are vital for safe operations. Airlines that prioritize passenger safety will have well-maintained aircraft and adhere to international safety standards.

Regulatory Oversight: The Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal (CAAN) is responsible for regulating and overseeing aviation safety in the country. They work in collaboration with international aviation authorities to ensure compliance with safety standards. Stay informed about any changes or updates in safety regulations and guidelines.

>

Weather Conditions:

Nepal experiences diverse weather conditions due to its varying topography and climatic zones. Here are some important points regarding weather conditions in Nepal:

Seasons: Nepal has four distinct seasons: spring (March to May), summer/monsoon (June to August), autumn (September to November), and winter (December to February). Each season has its own characteristics and weather patterns.

Monsoon Season: During the monsoon season (June to September), Nepal receives heavy rainfall, especially in the lowland areas and the southern region. Trekking and outdoor activities in the mountainous regions may be challenging due to slippery trails, landslides, and increased river water levels.

Altitude Variations: Weather conditions can vary significantly with altitude. Higher altitude areas, such as the Himalayan region, experience colder temperatures, even in summer. It is advisable to pack appropriate clothing layers and be prepared for changing weather conditions during treks or mountain expeditions.

Temperature Range: Nepal’s temperature range depends on the season and altitude. In the lowland Terai region, temperatures can soar to over 40°C (104°F) during summer, while winter temperatures can drop below freezing. In the higher altitudes, temperatures are generally cooler, and sub-zero temperatures are common, especially at night.

General Trekking info

  1. Trekking at high altitudes requires warm clothing to protect you from the cold. A down jacket with a hood is a must for altitudes above 4,000 m. You can rent a down jacket for USD 30-40, but please note that in case of loss or damage, you will need to reimburse the cost of USD 150 per item.

  2. A good quality sleeping bag is essential for a comfortable night’s sleep during the trek. You can rent a 4-season sleeping bag for USD 30-40, but again, if you lose or damage the sleeping bag, you will need to reimburse the cost of USD 150 per item.

  3. Before embarking on your trek, make sure to acclimatize to the altitude by spending a few days in Kathmandu. This will help your body adjust to the change in altitude and reduce the risk of altitude sickness.

  4. It is essential to have proper trekking shoes that are comfortable and provide good traction. Make sure to break in your shoes before the trek to avoid blisters and discomfort.

  5. The weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable, so it is crucial to pack for different weather conditions. Layers of clothing, including a waterproof jacket and pants, are recommended.

  8. Toiletries like wet wipes and hand sanitizer are essential, especially when there is no access to running water. It is also important to carry toilet paper and dispose of it properly.

  9. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically demanding, so it is essential to be in good physical shape. Regular exercise and cardiovascular training can help prepare your body for the trek.

  10. Respect the local culture and traditions by learning a few words in the local language and dressing modestly. Avoid giving money or sweets to children, as it can encourage a culture of begging.

  11. Trekking in the Himalayas can be an unforgettable experience, so take the time to enjoy the scenery and immerse yourself in the local culture. Take plenty of pictures, but remember to be respectful of the local customs and traditions.
