Additional Note

Please note that often the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits either at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both! We will do our best to avoid such delays, and arrange the next flight for you. We also organize Helicopter rescue in such conditions, if it is available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. Still, we suggest you to be prepared for possible delays/cancellations, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. If everything runs smoothly and you still have a few days of your buffer days left then you may even engage yourself in optional activities which can be arranged by Himalayan Glacier upon request. The optional activities may include visiting places/landmarks of your choice, adventure sports, shopping, etc.

In case the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip such as a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other region. If you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather wait for your original preferred trip, you are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for as many days as it takes to get a flight to Lukla. However, please note that there will be no refund, if you lose time waiting at the airport and do not take an alternative tour or you only do a short trek later due to time limitation. If the cancellation happens before the trip, we will provide you accommodation and lunch in a guesthouse in Kathmandu. In case of the flight delay/cancellation after finishing of the trek, you will be responsible for all your expenses. Please also note that you will not be entitled to any refund for the services (such as hotel, transport, flight, etc.) included in the package that you would not use later.


During our trek, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food as well the more common international cuisine (Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian, etc.). Breakfast and dinner will be served from the teahouse or from a lodge menu where we spend the night whereas you will need to have your lunch on your own on the way to the next destination. Breakfast and dinners will be provided during trekking while you will buy your own lunch. Likewise, only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu.


During your trip, you will stay at Hotel Encounter or a similar hotel in Kathmandu and teahouses along the route, all on a twin-shared basis. Single rooms are available on request for an additional cost of USD 225. Himalayan Glacier will arrange the most comfortable rooms with attached washrooms wherever possible, though some teahouses only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Note that single rooms are easier to find at lower elevations, while at higher elevations, availability may be limited.

Experience Required

The Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is a moderate trek suitable for passionate walkers who are able to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light rucksack. Some days may require walking for 7-8 hours. Walking in higher altitudes is more physically demanding than walking in lower altitudes. However, if we are in excellent health, with average physical fitness, a positive attitude, and strong determination, we can successfully complete the trek. Regular exercise and jogging are good ideas to enhance our strength and stability. Past hiking experience would be an asset, but no technical skills are required for this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions, such as heart, lung, and blood diseases, should inform Himalayan Glacier before booking the trek. We also recommend that you consult with your doctor(s) before the trip.


This trek's itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. During this trip, we take rest in Namche Bazaar and Dingboche which will help us acclimatize to the high altitude.

Team Composition

For this trek there will be one leader, assistant leader (4 trekkers: 1 assistant guide) and Sherpa porters for carrying luggage (2 trekkers: 1 porter). This arrangement ensures that should anybody in the group get sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned. We can run the trek for groups of any size but we after years of experience we have found a maximum of twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you'd like to book this trip for a larger group then that can be arranged too.

Equipment and Packing List

Trekking in the Everest region will be an extremely fun-filled adventure when you know exactly what gears and equipment are significantly necessary.  Have a quick glimpse on a complete packing list for Everest base camp trek and savor your experience of a lifetime.

Leader and Staff Arrangment

The most significant thing that makes this trek, enjoyable and memorable is the skilled, experienced, courteous and helpful leader(s) and the crew members with the ability of operating our days on the mountain smoothly. Our trip will be led by the best and most professional leaders. All of Himalayan Glacier’s leaders are carefully selected on the basis of their appropriate experience, leadership skills and personal aptitude. With an objective of sustaining local communities, Himalayan glacier only employs local staff who have adequate knowledge about culture, ecosystem, flora, fauna, geography, and history of their local region(s). The trek and expedition leaders have undergone the following trainings:

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid
  • Trekking Guide Training

  • English Language
  • Conservation and Biodiversity
  • Rock climbing, Ice Climbing and Mountaineering (for expedition leaders)

everest base camp packing list - duffel bag

What to pack on the Everest base camp trek?

Everest base camp trek is a lodge-to-lodge trek. It is also known as a teahouse trek. It means that you will not be required to sleep in camping tents and most of the facilities like laundry, food, etc. are easily available throughout the trek. However, you need to carry some of the most essential items that you will personally require during the trek. As Everest base camp trek is considered quite challenging, we recommend packing only the necessary gears and required equipment. Make sure that you don’t over-pack, and at the same time don’t under-pack.

In order to enjoy the trip rather than worry about the weight of your load, you need to pack light only with the essentials. Read the complete Everest base camp trek packing list and pack smart and light for a more comfortable and a fulfilling trip to the base camp.


The short Everest Base Camp trek is a moderate/demanding trek that does not require any technical expertise of mountaineering. It is basically a long hike up to the altitude of 5,364 meters / 17,599 feet. The trek is only grueling because of its duration of 12 days hike up and down the hill across diverse terrains (14 days including arrival and departure).
A short answer is yes! Many hikers who have trekked to Everest base camp in the past were smokers. But, for obvious reasons it is better that you quit smoking before gearing up for the trek. The oxygen levels at high altitudes begin decreasing which may cause difficulty in breathing. However, if it is hard for you to quit, then as long as you are in good overall health, it should be fine for you to do the trek.
Generally, ascending the mountainous trail higher than 2,700 meters (8,858 feet) will increase the possibilities of getting altitude sickness. Above this altitude, we always recommend our clients not to ascend more than 500 meters (1,640 feet) in a single day’s hike. Even if you try to proceed an extra 100 meters (328 feet), your chances of getting hit by altitude sickness will escalate. And, this instruction is applicable to people of all ages.
Well, the answer to this question would be yes and no! We recommend acclimatization days, especially when you are hiking at altitudes more than 8,000 feet. Although acclimatization days will increase the number of trip days, it is very crucial that you allow your body to adjust to the new environment, lest you fall prey to the low oxygen levels in the atmosphere. Acclimatization will help your body slowly adapt to lower oxygen levels thereby reducing chances of being hit by any of the mountain sicknesses. So, as a bottom line, we recommend you not to skip your acclimatization days at all.
You have options to complete your Everest base camp trek in a shorter time if you are willing to spend some more money. One option is to trek up to Everest base camp and then fly back on a helicopter, either up to Lukla or Kathmandu. Another option is to first fly to the base camp and then return to Lukla trekking. But, we do not recommend the latter option as you will be exposed to a very high altitude which has a high chance of making you sick. Besides these, you can cut down on your acclimatization days, which is another thing that we do not recommend at all.
