  • The Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is a spectacular high-altitude trek in the mountain region of Solukhumbu District, Nepal. The scenery is jaw dropping to explore the challenging trekking routes around the highest mountain in the world with a unique cultural experience. The starting point and ending point for the trek is Lukla; flight to be taken from Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA), Kathmandu to Lukla. Average daily walking distance is 5-7 hours. This trekking is considered as one of the most difficult one with the total ascent of 6015 m and total descent of 5821 m. Permits are required, which includes Local Government Fee (Khumbu Rural Municipality) $20 and Sagarmatha National Park Fee $35 per person. Interesting Dishes available at EBC Trek are Sherpa Stew, Tibetan Bread, Momos, Spring Roll, Mars Roll, Pizza, Typical Nepali Food etc.
    There are two best seasons for trekking to EBC. The best months to trek to Everest base camp are in the pre-monsoon season through March, April and May or in the post monsoon season from late September, October, November.

    Planning for Delays at Lukla:
    Lukla’s landing strip is short and it runs to the edge of a large cliff face, making the approach very challenging. The airstrip has a single possible approach path through the windy valley it overlooks, and only very small aircraft and helicopters are able to make the journey. Due to its position and elevation, weather conditions and visibility can change rapidly. This makes the flight a difficult one to schedule or predict. The airlines do not take chances with weather conditions, and will return a flight to Kathmandu anywhere along its journey rather than risk an unsafe landing if conditions have changed since takeoff.
    Delays with Lukla flights are very common. These can happen any time of year, but are especially likely around monsoon season (late May to early Sept.). If your flight is delayed, we will reschedule you on the next possible flight. As conditions can change so rapidly this may be very soon after your scheduled departure, or as much as a few days later – it is very difficult to predict. This can be pretty frustrating, but is simply part of the journey to the Everest region. We strongly recommend you add at least a day or two to the end of your trip to give yourself some flexibility in the case of any delays.
    Extra days should always be scheduled at the end of the trip, this gives you flexibility with your trekking itinerary in case of any weather delays.
