Preparation:

Before starting the Everest Base Camp trek, trekkers should ensure that they are adequately prepared both physically and mentally. These include regular cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and altitude acclimatization. Appropriate gear, including sturdy hiking shoes, warm clothing, and a quality sleeping bag, are also essential for comfort and safety on the trail.

Finally, the Everest base camp trek is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that offers trekkers the opportunity to experience the majesty of the Himalayas up close. From its stunning landscape and rich cultural heritage to its high-altitude challenges and final destination at the base camp, every aspect of the trek is sure to leave a lasting impression on those who take it.

How to avoid altitude sickness during the EBC trek?

The trek to Everest base camp will always be tough due to the high altitude and requires good physical and mental preparation. Anyone with a strong fear of heights or vertigo may feel a little dizzy. The maximum elevation of Everest base camp is 5,545 meters at Kalapathar and the average is close to 4,500 meters. However, we give you enough time for acclimatization, but altitude is a factor here and should be considered. Hence, we urge our clients to ensure good physical fitness. It is advisable to have some previous trekking/hiking experience above 3,500 meters before embarking on the Mt Everest Base Camp Trek.

The walking hours stated within the Everest Base Camp Hike itinerary are approximate only. The times mentioned do not include lunch stops and depend on the pace of your group. We encourage our guests to walk at a comfortable pace suitable for their bodies.

Finally, we assure you all that will be a favorable and suitable time to do adventure destinations in Nepal. We are a team very excited to take you to explore the glamorous unique Sherpa culture and beauty of the Himalayas, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure experience for Nepal.

Note:

Our itinerary may vary slightly due to unforeseen events and events beyond our control. Factors like flight cancellations/delays, inclement weather, natural calamities, recently implemented government regulations, political affairs, health conditions of trekkers, etc. are possible. Evaluation of possible solutions to the situation allows trekking to be resumed as soon as possible based on the best options. During these times, we seek your support and flexibility.

It is advised that you arrive a day before the start date of the trip so that you can rest and it gives you time to buy the necessary clothing, equipment, and gear for the trek. Also, in case any flights are delayed or canceled due to weather, it's best to book international flights on free days in Nepal before and after your trek. Moreover, you have options to customize this trip where you can add a visit to Kathmandu, other adventures or day trips around the country before or after the trek.

Lukla Flight Information:

We would like to inform you about Lukla flight details that may affect your itinerary. During the peak season (including March, April, May, October, and November) the flight to Lukla is operated from Ramechhap/Manthali, so it is about 5 to 6 hours away from Kathmandu due to the expansion of air traffic. Whereas, during non-peak seasons (including January, February, June, July, August, September, and December) flights operate from Kathmandu.

Please note that the decision regarding flight operations depends solely on the airline and is influenced by the number of passengers in a particular month.

The main reasons for Lukla flight delays/cancellations are adverse weather conditions, airport congestion, unorganized runways, topographical difficulties, etc. Therefore, if you want to trek on land in the Everest region, it is very good to arrange an extra day or two for your trip. This will help in case of flight delay/cancellation and thus board a pre-planned international flight

Everest Base Camp Trek

27th April, 2018

We Took the EBC trek with Ram in June and it was amazing. He was very helpful and responsive when you are planing your trip and everyone knows that the guide on a trip like this can make or break your trek. For our trek we had a guide named Ram and he was amazing. We went during monsoon season so flights were hard to come by but Ram made sure that we got there by dealing with the airlines and the helicopter companies. He monitored us the whole way to make sure the altitude wasn't to much for us and any problem we had he fixed right away. We observed many different guides along the was and we wouldn't trade ram for anything. The views were amazing and Ram could answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Mountain Eco Treks and Expedition for all treks in Nepal and if you do use them ask for RAM!

Professional, fun, amazing!

Ram and Neil led our group of 6 to Everest Base Camp and back safely and we had the time of our lives! Their knowledge of the area and ability to change plans as we needed made our trip smooth, fascinating and down right one of the best treks we have ever done. The guys were fun and joined in the laughs and were able to fix any issues swiftly along the way, including our lost luggage and cancelled flights!
I couldn't recommend this company more highly. You will be in good hands, I will be back for sure!

Great Trek to EBC and Kathmandu Tour!!!

1st March, 2018

My wife and I had the pleasure to have Ram guide us up the mountain last summer. We did a 12 day trek. We really didn't have to do much besides hike. Ram arranged the flights, got us to and from the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, arranged all of the overnight stays, all meals, and had a porter to carry our duffel bags. He made the whole experience as easy as possible for us. We met other couples trekking without guides and they were all exhausted and most of them had bats of food poisoning. Each meal we had Ram would tell us what is safe to eat and what would make us sick so we never had to worry about it. He also introduced us to delicious ra-ra noodles and buffalo momos! He also showed us around Kathmandu for a couple days. I am sure we would not have had nearly as good of a trip if it was not for Ram. Hopefully we can get back to Nepal in the next few years so we can have Ram guide us to Annapurna Base Camp!

Great Experience - Everest Base Camp

12th March, 2022

We had a great time in Nepal and amazing experience!! All the prep and communications were with Dev who is extremely knowledgeable, polite and has lot of patience to answer questions (and I trust me I had a lot of them!). We trekked the Everest Base Camp with Mr. Ram as a guide (Dev’s partner). He was very experienced, knew everyone along the way, he could probably do the trek with his eyes closed and we felt safe and welcome in the places we stayed on this trek. When I got sick, both him and our porter (Sushan) took good care of me.
In addition, after the trek, we visited both Dev’s and Mr. Ram’s families, had homemade Nepalis traditional food – it was delicious! Both kept in touch after the trek till this day.
If you want a no hassle, enjoyable, safe, and hospitable experience you cannot go past Dev and his team!! They are the best; I would highly recommend exploring Nepal and trekking with them. They can find a trek suitable for your needs. Amazing! Thanks for everything, Guys!!

EBC trek

10th May, 2018

My trip to Nepal and the trek to Everest base camp were pretty spontaneous. I got invited to join while I was Indonesia. Not an offer I could say no to. Unfortunately the group I was invited to join ended up not really being my preferred cup of tea. There was a bit of drama. But, thanks to Our guide Dev and his nephew Probin, I was able to focus on how rad they were and how amazing the trek was. By the time we reached base camp and prepared to head back down, Dev and I were the only two left in the group. The others had to head down early due to the affects of altitude. Just a matter of luck really. That was when I really discovered the meaning of “jam jam”. We jam jammed from EBC to Lukla In just a few days! We probably could have placed in the EBC marathon that’s was taking place at the time. We wanted to get down to the others as soon as possible. Dev was a great guide and used solid judgement when it came to pushing limits. He has been trekking the Himalayas since a young kid. He’s very savvy to the whole environment and the tole it can take on an individual. When it comes to locals, and whether or not they actually care about you, he’s one of the good ones. If you find yourself in a predicament that you’re not sure how to solve, he’s the man to help you. He can make things happen if needed. 
Thank you Dev and Probin! I hope to see you again soon!

How to avoid altitude sickness during the EBC trek?

The trek to Everest base camp will always be tough due to the high altitude and requires good physical and mental preparation. Anyone with a strong fear of heights or vertigo may feel a little dizzy. The maximum elevation of Everest base camp is 5,545 meters at Kalapathar and the average is close to 4,500 meters. However, we give you enough time for acclimatization, but altitude is a factor here and should be considered. Hence, we urge our clients to ensure good physical fitness. It is advisable to have some previous trekking/hiking experience above 3,500 meters before embarking on the Mt Everest Base Camp Trek.

The walking hours stated within the Everest Base Camp Hike itinerary are approximate only. The times mentioned do not include lunch stops and depend on the pace of your group. We encourage our guests to walk at a comfortable pace suitable for their bodies.

Finally, we assure you all that will be a favorable and suitable time to do adventure destinations in Nepal. We are a team very excited to take you to explore the glamorous unique Sherpa culture and beauty of the Himalayas, a once-in-a-lifetime adventure experience for Nepal.

Note:

Our itinerary may vary slightly due to unforeseen events and events beyond our control. Factors like flight cancellations/delays, inclement weather, natural calamities, recently implemented government regulations, political affairs, health conditions of trekkers, etc. are possible. Evaluation of possible solutions to the situation allows trekking to be resumed as soon as possible based on the best options. During these times, we seek your support and flexibility.

It is advised that you arrive a day before the start date of the trip so that you can rest and it gives you time to buy the necessary clothing, equipment, and gear for the trek. Also, in case any flights are delayed or canceled due to weather, it's best to book international flights on free days in Nepal before and after your trek. Moreover, you have options to customize this trip where you can add a visit to Kathmandu, other adventures or day trips around the country before or after the trek.

Lukla Flight Information:

We would like to inform you about Lukla flight details that may affect your itinerary. During the peak season (including March, April, May, October, and November) the flight to Lukla is operated from Ramechhap/Manthali, so it is about 5 to 6 hours away from Kathmandu due to the expansion of air traffic. Whereas, during non-peak seasons (including January, February, June, July, August, September, and December) flights operate from Kathmandu.

Please note that the decision regarding flight operations depends solely on the airline and is influenced by the number of passengers in a particular month.

The main reasons for Lukla flight delays/cancellations are adverse weather conditions, airport congestion, unorganized runways, topographical difficulties, etc. Therefore, if you want to trek on land in the Everest region, it is very good to arrange an extra day or two for your trip. This will help in case of flight delay/cancellation and thus board a pre-planned international flight

It does not demand any technical skills. Even trekkers without any experience can do the trek with proper training and preparation.

You can store it at your hotel (most hotels in Kathmandu have storage facilities without any charge) 

in the last few decades where most of the rural villages do have proper communication wither by cell- phone (mobile our guides will be in touch with the head office through their cell phone. Sometimes Cell-Phone do works and don'ts as Nepal is a hilly and mountainous country with a deep gorge and valley, where cell phone works on high hills, and might not when in a deep gorge hidden by hills and mountains. The chances of a working cell phone are most positive you can try using a local popular SiM card. 

There are most of the guesthouses on the complete Everest Base Camp trek, providing Wi-fi facilities at a small cost. However, don’t forget the cellular network in the mountain is poor, and it doesn’t work very properly it keeps disconnecting every minute.

Nearly all lodges on trekking do have small hydro or solar electricity, as for other accessories plugs to fit into re-charge your camera and cell phones, which allows you at extra cost to charge the batteries and your electronic device.

 

Accommodation is basic at a higher altitude. You will be staying at a teahouse or it calls a guest house that offers food and accommodation for all the trekkers. A typical room has two beds on either side, with a small table in the middle. Beds are equipped with a mattress, pillow, and blanket; however, you may use your sleeping bag in addition to the blanket when it gets cold. The dining room in a teahouse is usually a warm temperate with fire. Hot showers are available throughout the trek. Our package includes and private, free hot shower in Namche.

Bottled water is easily available during the whole trip, on these treks, we try to avoid plastic mineral waters due to waste and un eco-friendly, people can buy bottled water only in special and desperate situations. We highly recommended to you that it is better to carry a thermos with boiled and filtered water. You may need to use water purification tablets, Additionally, mineral water gets very expensive above Namche Bazar,   rising to five times the original price due to high transportation costs.

 

There is no age limit; you can do this if you are not suffering from any disease Of course, it will be challenging for young children under 10 and people over 70 years old but if you are in good shape and have strength and endurance training, cardio workout, and hiking in your local mountains before the trek then surely you will do it complete Everest Base Camp trek.

It reduces financial risks and protects travelers from certain losses. Travel insurance covers necessary medical expenses and emergency air rescue during the trip. We strongly recommend travel insurance for your protection.

You should bring all the trekking equipment you need yourself. Trekkers can bring equipment from their hometown, but their costs can be high, so buying them from local shops in Thamel Kathmandu is the right decision.

Everest Base Camp Trek

27th April, 2018

We Took the EBC trek with Ram in June and it was amazing. He was very helpful and responsive when you are planing your trip and everyone knows that the guide on a trip like this can make or break your trek. For our trek we had a guide named Ram and he was amazing. We went during monsoon season so flights were hard to come by but Ram made sure that we got there by dealing with the airlines and the helicopter companies. He monitored us the whole way to make sure the altitude wasn't to much for us and any problem we had he fixed right away. We observed many different guides along the was and we wouldn't trade ram for anything. The views were amazing and Ram could answer any questions we had. I highly recommend Mountain Eco Treks and Expedition for all treks in Nepal and if you do use them ask for RAM!

Professional, fun, amazing!

Ram and Neil led our group of 6 to Everest Base Camp and back safely and we had the time of our lives! Their knowledge of the area and ability to change plans as we needed made our trip smooth, fascinating and down right one of the best treks we have ever done. The guys were fun and joined in the laughs and were able to fix any issues swiftly along the way, including our lost luggage and cancelled flights!
I couldn't recommend this company more highly. You will be in good hands, I will be back for sure!

Great Trek to EBC and Kathmandu Tour!!!

1st March, 2018

My wife and I had the pleasure to have Ram guide us up the mountain last summer. We did a 12 day trek. We really didn't have to do much besides hike. Ram arranged the flights, got us to and from the airports in Kathmandu and Lukla, arranged all of the overnight stays, all meals, and had a porter to carry our duffel bags. He made the whole experience as easy as possible for us. We met other couples trekking without guides and they were all exhausted and most of them had bats of food poisoning. Each meal we had Ram would tell us what is safe to eat and what would make us sick so we never had to worry about it. He also introduced us to delicious ra-ra noodles and buffalo momos! He also showed us around Kathmandu for a couple days. I am sure we would not have had nearly as good of a trip if it was not for Ram. Hopefully we can get back to Nepal in the next few years so we can have Ram guide us to Annapurna Base Camp!

Great Experience - Everest Base Camp

12th March, 2022

We had a great time in Nepal and amazing experience!! All the prep and communications were with Dev who is extremely knowledgeable, polite and has lot of patience to answer questions (and I trust me I had a lot of them!). We trekked the Everest Base Camp with Mr. Ram as a guide (Dev’s partner). He was very experienced, knew everyone along the way, he could probably do the trek with his eyes closed and we felt safe and welcome in the places we stayed on this trek. When I got sick, both him and our porter (Sushan) took good care of me.
In addition, after the trek, we visited both Dev’s and Mr. Ram’s families, had homemade Nepalis traditional food – it was delicious! Both kept in touch after the trek till this day.
If you want a no hassle, enjoyable, safe, and hospitable experience you cannot go past Dev and his team!! They are the best; I would highly recommend exploring Nepal and trekking with them. They can find a trek suitable for your needs. Amazing! Thanks for everything, Guys!!

EBC trek

10th May, 2018

My trip to Nepal and the trek to Everest base camp were pretty spontaneous. I got invited to join while I was Indonesia. Not an offer I could say no to. Unfortunately the group I was invited to join ended up not really being my preferred cup of tea. There was a bit of drama. But, thanks to Our guide Dev and his nephew Probin, I was able to focus on how rad they were and how amazing the trek was. By the time we reached base camp and prepared to head back down, Dev and I were the only two left in the group. The others had to head down early due to the affects of altitude. Just a matter of luck really. That was when I really discovered the meaning of “jam jam”. We jam jammed from EBC to Lukla In just a few days! We probably could have placed in the EBC marathon that’s was taking place at the time. We wanted to get down to the others as soon as possible. Dev was a great guide and used solid judgement when it came to pushing limits. He has been trekking the Himalayas since a young kid. He’s very savvy to the whole environment and the tole it can take on an individual. When it comes to locals, and whether or not they actually care about you, he’s one of the good ones. If you find yourself in a predicament that you’re not sure how to solve, he’s the man to help you. He can make things happen if needed. 
Thank you Dev and Probin! I hope to see you again soon!
