FAQs

EBC trek and fly back by helicopter, as the name suggests, is a wonderful trek up to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain where trekkers need to walk one way up. After reaching the base camp, hikers need not walk back down rather will fly back on a thrilling helicopter ride, either to Lukla or Kathmandu, based on their demands. Normally EBC trek is a moderate or demanding trek which does not require any technical expertise of mountaineering. It is basically a long hike up to an altitude of 5,364m (17,599ft.) and it seems difficult only because you need to walk for 7 to 9 days all the way up to the base camp on varied terrains.

EBC Trek and fly back by Helicopter is best done in pre-monsoon season i.e. from March to May and post-monsoon season i.e. from late September to December. It is also possible to do this trek in February and early September but the trek is best preferred during the above months.

Absolutely yes! Under normal circumstances, our booked trips are guaranteed to run. You will still be doing your trek even if other trekkers cancel their trip. This is the reason why Himalayan Glacier is different from other agencies, who usually cancel their whole trip a month or even a week before the trip date. We are a tailor-made company and the number of participants does not stop our operation. If your trip has been canceled by your operator and you are in a last-minute stress, remember to find us to sort out your trip decisions. Please feel free to book your stress-free holidays with us. Unless there is a situation which is out of control such as a political riot, natural disaster, pandemic, epidemic or weather catastrophes, our trips are 100% guaranteed to run.

Himalayan Glacier offers a lifetime deposit policy which allows you the flexibility to transfer your deposit to anyone or any other trip. If you wish to cancel your booked trips, certain cancelation charges apply. Please visit our booking terms and conditions for detailed information.

You will be guided by our experienced trek leaders who have been to the base camp and back multiple times for years. All our guides are locals who communicate very well in English and acquire deep knowledge of the mountain, people, culture, health, hygiene, and most importantly your safety.

At the end of a long day’s hike, a relaxing, unwinding and a night of comfortable sleep are essential for the following day’s walk. You will be sleeping at some of the best lodges with two beds in each room including western toilet facilities. The beds will be clean and comfortable with an electric blanket (wherever available) and attached bathroom on most nights. Usually, the room’s temperature will be maintained at 10-12°C / 50-53°F.
