Additional Information

Everest Base Camp Trek lets you enjoy walking in the amazing Himalayan paths and discover mountain monasteries and the Sherpas' unique traditions. Sherpa people take care of the mountains. They not only live near them but also find joy and worship in the mountains.

The best part about Sherpa culture is its special customs, traditions, and way of life, all rooted in Tibetan Buddhism. Sherpas are famous worldwide for their climbing and trekking skills, as well as their warm hospitality. They love their traditional music and dances, celebrate vibrant festivals, and cook up delicious food. Many people are drawn to Sherpa culture and their connection to the Himalayas, especially Mt. Everest.

Sherpas celebrate lots of festivals inspired by Tibetan Buddhism. Some of the important ones include Losar, Mani Rimdu, Palden Lhamo, and Dumje. 

Losar: For the Sherpa people, Losar is their main New Year's Day. On this special day, everyone comes together at Stupas and Monasteries. They chant mantras, which are like special prayers, and pass around fire torches among the crowd. People dress in their traditional clothes and make delicious feasts. There's also a cool dance that happens—it shows a battle between a deer and a King. Losar is a time for celebrations, prayers, and fun traditions for the Sherpa community.

Mani Rimdu: Buddhists have a special celebration called the Mani Rimdu festival. It's like a big party where they pray for the world to be happy and safe. Sherpas, who are people from the Himalayan region, gather to join in the celebration. They play traditional drums, sing, and chant in the mountains. The festival takes place near Mount Everest at Tengboche Monastery. For three whole days in November, the monks there wear masks and dance, and everyone prays together. It's a really important and joyful time during Nepal's festive season.

Palden Lhamo: "Palden Lhamo" means "Glorious Goddess," and it's also called the "Women's Festival" in modern Tibet. During this special time, people do many religious activities. Girls and women dress up and visit temples to pray. They offer Khadas, which are traditional scarves, to their respected angels. They also go shopping, enjoy delicious food, and do something unique—they ask men for money to donate to the fairies. It's a time of celebration and sharing for women during this festival.

Dumje: This festival takes place in Nepal exactly two months after the Buddhist New Year.  It goes on for four days and during the Dumje festival lamas wearing masks perform dances, prayers, and rituals. After each festival day, local Sherpa villagers gather to have a merry time with Sherpa dancing, singing, talking, and having good drinks.
 

During your journey from Lukla, you will be treated to beautiful views of Mount Everest and other majestic mountains. But the most exciting part is when you reach Kala Patthar, a high spot along the trek, about 18,514 feet high. This is the place where you can see the real magic also known as vintage point. 

The first light of the day slowly lights up Mount Everest and the nearby peaks. It's like a dream for every trekker. Also, the best part is you get a complete 360-degree view of the entire Everest region. This place is also known as a photographer's paradise. Not only do you watch the sunrise, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment. It's a memory that will stay with you, reminding you of the incredible beauty of the Himalayas.

Also while we acclimate at Namche Bazaar you will hike to the Everest View Hotel. It is also one of the vantage points where you can enjoy the Gorgeous vistas of Everest while having dinner in this Hotel.

On another acclimatization day at Dingboche, you will visit the Nangkartshang Peak. Nangkartshang Peak is situated at 16,677 feet. From this vantage point also you can see the entire view of Everest which is truly extraordinary.

1. Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit
You need this permit after you arrive at Lukla. There are no alternative offices in Kathmandu that issue this permit. You can obtain this permit in Monjo. For the foreigners and SAARC nationalities, it will cost you RS 2,000. If you stay longer than four weeks, then you need to pay a fee of RS2500.
2. Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit 
You can get this permit in Kathmandu or at Monjo at the entry gate. This permit is free for children under 10 years of age. 
•Foreigners: NPR 3000 per person + 13% VAT.
•Residents of SAARC: NPR 1500 per person + 13% VAT

Lukla is the hub for trekking in the mountain region. It takes around 30 minutes to reach Lukla from the TIA. Trekkers will feel nervous when they have to fly for the Lukla because it is recognized as the world's most dangerous airport. The small runway and surrounded by the high mountains and forest make it scary but safe to travel. 

You'll see amazing sights from the Lukla flight like Langtang, Gaurishankar, Everest, and other big mountains. The landscapes are beautiful, and you'll pass through traditional villages, making the trek a great experience.

Due to unpredictable weather conditions, the chances of flights getting delayed/cancelation can be high. It is for the traveler's safety. The Civil Aviation of Nepal will not allow flights until they are safe. Also, during the peak seasons or bad weather conditions, the flight might be diverted to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap.
 

The best time or idol time to do the is during the spring (March-May) or autumn (September-November) when the weather is mild and the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. The clear view of the sky and perfect temperature conditions make hiking easier. 

You can enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains and the surroundings while experiencing comfortable weather. If you travel in spring, the blossom of the rhododendron, along with many other flowers and greenery, takes the trek to another level.

Apart from the spring and the autumn seasons trekkers like to trek during the winter seasons also. To trek in the winter season, you must add an extra layer of cloth to deal with the freezing temperature. Also, there is a high chance of heavy snowfall, and you need to be well-equipped with the gear to tackle the snow. If you like the great view for the photography it will be the best time.

Further, you can trek in the monsoon season also, but due to rainfall, the trail path can be slippery, and chances of flood and landslide can give you trouble. It's a good idea to trek during the peak seasons for the best views and a more enjoyable experience.
 

Before embarking on EBC, make sure to get travel insurance that takes care of things like medical emergencies, lost baggage, helicopter evacuation, and cancel your trip. Take time to choose the right insurance, then only begin to trek.

Also, it is important to tell the trekking agencies about your health condition or any existing medical issue that you might have. Make sure to keep updated about the rules and regulations for trekking inside Nepal as it might change.
 

While staying in Kathmandu, there are enough hotels that you can find, from the cheap to the lavish ones. You can get the facilities according to your budget. However, most of the standard hotels/lodge gives you the facility of free hot/cold showers, attached bathrooms with basic amenities, wifi facilities, and free breakfast.

From the city to the low-altitude area, there are enough hotels/lodges on the trekking route. But if you're trekking in the higher altitude area in the route of Everest Base Camp, you'll mostly stay in tea houses or lodges. These are places where you can rest, eat, and sleep during your journey. 

They provide basic accommodation and meals, making it convenient for trekkers like you. It's a simple and cozy way to stay along the trek route. Being one of the famous trekking destinations, every year, thousands of visitors come for this trek. So recently, you can find some of the updated tea/houses or lodges in some places depending upon the altitude. 

You'll find a variety of tasty food on the menus of most tea houses along the trail path. They offer dishes like Thukpa (noodle soup), Momos (dumplings), Sherpa stew, different kinds of soups, Macaroni, Spaghetti, Potato dishes, Pizza, Sandwiches, Yak steak, Rice, Burger with chips, and Spring Rolls.

For breakfast, you have several options to choose from: Tibetan bread, Chapati, Toast with jam or honey, French toast, Pancakes, Porridge with milk, and Boiled or fried eggs. So, there's a good mix of meals to keep you fueled and satisfied during your trek. Also, you will have the option for a different variety of beverages.
 

Altitude sickness is very common while trekking at the high altitude. Generally, it happens when your body has trouble adjusting to lower oxygen availability at high elevations. Every trekker should know altitude sickness before hiking in the altitude area. It can happen to anyone who treks in high-altitude areas. 

If it is treated in time, then it can be cured easily, but if someone neglects it, the result can be serious. Sometimes, it can take the life of a person also. Altitude sickness is divided into three different categories: acute mountain sickness, high-altitude cerebral edema, and high-altitude pulmonary edema.

Trekking to Everest Base Camp can be easier or harder depending on your health, hiking experience, and training. If you've done long hikes before, it might feel easier, but if you're new to hiking, it could be a bit challenging. People of all ages have completed this trek in the past few years after preparing and training, so it's doable.
During the EBC trek, you don't need to have climbing skills; the main thing is a long walk at a high altitude. The total distance that you need to cover is around 130 km. The average time that most people finish is two weeks, including a rest day at a high altitude.
This trek takes you to an altitude of above 4000m so getting caught from altitude sickness is possible. You and every trekker need to know in advance about altitude sickness. If symptoms of altitude sickness occur, you should inform your guide immediately so that he will help you to deal with altitude sickness. If you trek with us, then you don't have to worry about things, as we are here to make your journey safer and more enjoyable.

Everest Base Camp Trek is also known as teahouse/lodge-lodge trekking in the mountain region. You will spend the night in the tea house which is run by the family of local people living in that region. Immersing in Sherpa culture, trekking to picturesque villages, and experiencing warm hospitality—these moments stay with you forever.

You will trek with the local friendly Sherpas Guide known for their mountaineering expertise. They will not only help you navigate the trail path and help in an emergency evacuation but also listening to their stories and traditional songs adds charm to the journey. 

Your Team Himalaya Special Everest Base Camp Trek begins when you arrive at Lukla Airport.

The trail takes you to higher altitudes, first reaching Namche Bazaar and then progressing through Tengboche, Dingboche, Loboche, Gorak Shep, and finally, the Everest Base Camp at an elevation of 5,364 m. The ultimate challenge, both in terms of altitude and personal endurance, is the ascent to the thin-air summit of Kala Patthar at 5,545m.

The Everest trek is not only a physical journey but a spiritual journey as well. Visiting many Buddhist monasteries and chortens and watching monks praying gives you a completely different taste.

Additional Information

Everest Base Camp Trek lets you enjoy walking in the amazing Himalayan paths and discover mountain monasteries and the Sherpas' unique traditions. Sherpa people take care of the mountains. They not only live near them but also find joy and worship in the mountains.

The best part about Sherpa culture is its special customs, traditions, and way of life, all rooted in Tibetan Buddhism. Sherpas are famous worldwide for their climbing and trekking skills, as well as their warm hospitality. They love their traditional music and dances, celebrate vibrant festivals, and cook up delicious food. Many people are drawn to Sherpa culture and their connection to the Himalayas, especially Mt. Everest.

Sherpas celebrate lots of festivals inspired by Tibetan Buddhism. Some of the important ones include Losar, Mani Rimdu, Palden Lhamo, and Dumje. 

Losar: For the Sherpa people, Losar is their main New Year's Day. On this special day, everyone comes together at Stupas and Monasteries. They chant mantras, which are like special prayers, and pass around fire torches among the crowd. People dress in their traditional clothes and make delicious feasts. There's also a cool dance that happens—it shows a battle between a deer and a King. Losar is a time for celebrations, prayers, and fun traditions for the Sherpa community.

Mani Rimdu: Buddhists have a special celebration called the Mani Rimdu festival. It's like a big party where they pray for the world to be happy and safe. Sherpas, who are people from the Himalayan region, gather to join in the celebration. They play traditional drums, sing, and chant in the mountains. The festival takes place near Mount Everest at Tengboche Monastery. For three whole days in November, the monks there wear masks and dance, and everyone prays together. It's a really important and joyful time during Nepal's festive season.

Palden Lhamo: "Palden Lhamo" means "Glorious Goddess," and it's also called the "Women's Festival" in modern Tibet. During this special time, people do many religious activities. Girls and women dress up and visit temples to pray. They offer Khadas, which are traditional scarves, to their respected angels. They also go shopping, enjoy delicious food, and do something unique—they ask men for money to donate to the fairies. It's a time of celebration and sharing for women during this festival.

Dumje: This festival takes place in Nepal exactly two months after the Buddhist New Year.  It goes on for four days and during the Dumje festival lamas wearing masks perform dances, prayers, and rituals. After each festival day, local Sherpa villagers gather to have a merry time with Sherpa dancing, singing, talking, and having good drinks.
 

During your journey from Lukla, you will be treated to beautiful views of Mount Everest and other majestic mountains. But the most exciting part is when you reach Kala Patthar, a high spot along the trek, about 18,514 feet high. This is the place where you can see the real magic also known as vintage point. 

The first light of the day slowly lights up Mount Everest and the nearby peaks. It's like a dream for every trekker. Also, the best part is you get a complete 360-degree view of the entire Everest region. This place is also known as a photographer's paradise. Not only do you watch the sunrise, you'll feel a sense of accomplishment. It's a memory that will stay with you, reminding you of the incredible beauty of the Himalayas.

Also while we acclimate at Namche Bazaar you will hike to the Everest View Hotel. It is also one of the vantage points where you can enjoy the Gorgeous vistas of Everest while having dinner in this Hotel.

On another acclimatization day at Dingboche, you will visit the Nangkartshang Peak. Nangkartshang Peak is situated at 16,677 feet. From this vantage point also you can see the entire view of Everest which is truly extraordinary.
 

You need Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality fees, Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit for the EBC Trek, And the Gauri Shankar Conservation Area (Optional). 
1. Khumbu Rural Municipality Permit
You need this permit after you arrive at Lukla. There are no alternative offices in Kathmandu that issue this permit. You can obtain this permit in Monjo. For the foreigners and SAARC nationalities, it will cost you RS 2,000. If you stay longer than four weeks, then you need to pay a fee of RS2500.
2. Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit 
You can get this permit in Kathmandu or at Monjo at the entry gate. This permit is free for children under 10 years of age. 
•Foreigners: NPR 3000 per person + 13% VAT.
•Residents of SAARC: NPR 1500 per person + 13% VAT
•Nepalese: NPR 100 per person + VAT of +13%
 

Lukla is the hub for trekking in the mountain region. It takes around 30 minutes to reach Lukla from the TIA. Trekkers will feel nervous when they have to fly for the Lukla because it is recognized as the world's most dangerous airport. The small runway and surrounded by the high mountains and forest make it scary but safe to travel. 

You'll see amazing sights from the Lukla flight like Langtang, Gaurishankar, Everest, and other big mountains. The landscapes are beautiful, and you'll pass through traditional villages, making the trek a great experience.

Due to unpredictable weather conditions, the chances of flights getting delayed/cancelation can be high. It is for the traveler's safety. The Civil Aviation of Nepal will not allow flights until they are safe. Also, during the peak seasons or bad weather conditions, the flight might be diverted to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap.
 

The best time or idol time to do the is during the spring (March-May) or autumn (September-November) when the weather is mild and the temperature is neither too hot nor too cold. The clear view of the sky and perfect temperature conditions make hiking easier. 

You can enjoy breathtaking views of the mountains and the surroundings while experiencing comfortable weather. If you travel in spring, the blossom of the rhododendron, along with many other flowers and greenery, takes the trek to another level.

Apart from the spring and the autumn seasons trekkers like to trek during the winter seasons also. To trek in the winter season, you must add an extra layer of cloth to deal with the freezing temperature. Also, there is a high chance of heavy snowfall, and you need to be well-equipped with the gear to tackle the snow. If you like the great view for the photography it will be the best time.

Further, you can trek in the monsoon season also, but due to rainfall, the trail path can be slippery, and chances of flood and landslide can give you trouble. It's a good idea to trek during the peak seasons for the best views and a more enjoyable experience.
 

Before embarking on EBC, make sure to get travel insurance that takes care of things like medical emergencies, lost baggage, helicopter evacuation, and cancel your trip. Take time to choose the right insurance, then only begin to trek.

Also, it is important to tell the trekking agencies about your health condition or any existing medical issue that you might have. Make sure to keep updated about the rules and regulations for trekking inside Nepal as it might change.
 

While staying in Kathmandu, there are enough hotels that you can find, from the cheap to the lavish ones. You can get the facilities according to your budget. However, most of the standard hotels/lodge gives you the facility of free hot/cold showers, attached bathrooms with basic amenities, wifi facilities, and free breakfast.

From the city to the low-altitude area, there are enough hotels/lodges on the trekking route. But if you're trekking in the higher altitude area in the route of Everest Base Camp, you'll mostly stay in tea houses or lodges. These are places where you can rest, eat, and sleep during your journey. 

They provide basic accommodation and meals, making it convenient for trekkers like you. It's a simple and cozy way to stay along the trek route. Being one of the famous trekking destinations, every year, thousands of visitors come for this trek. So recently, you can find some of the updated tea/houses or lodges in some places depending upon the altitude.
