The Everest Base Camp Trek is one of our favourite treks and we’d be delighted to help you explore this impressive region in Nepal.

Number one on most people’s wish list is the Everest Base Camp trek. You’ll get incredible views of the giant peak from the hill of Kala Pattar, a wonderful low-altitude loop from Lukla will take you to a string of fascinating Sherpa villages around Namche.

The definitive Everest Base Camp Trek, flying into Lukla & climbing to the view point of Mt. Everest through breathless high alpine landscapes.  Enjoy the natural openhearted friendliness of the Sherpa people and glacial valleys into unparalleled scenery. 

The Everest Base Camp trek is one of Nepal's most popular treks and rightly so. Just imagine standing right at the foot of Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Trekking to mountain peak - called Sagarmatha in Nepali and Chomolungma (Mother deity of the World) in Tibetan and Sherpa - has a long tradition. The trail is very well developed with comfortable and quirky tea houses along the way. Our trip leads you through the Solukhumbu region slowly up the valley, tracing the path of the successful British 1953 expedition all the way to the Everest base camp. Along the way, you will see some of the most impressive mountains like Cholatse and – the favorite of many visitors – Ama Dablam. If you feel up to it, you can hike up Kala Pathar (5,554m) which offers a magnificent panorama of Everest, Lhotse, Cho Oyu, Pumori, Nuptse and many more famous mountains as well as the Khumbu glacier.

With Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure, you'll not only be able to enjoy this unique landscape but you'll also have the chance to observe the traditions and rituals of the local Sherpa people. We put great emphasis on authetic experiences and our professional local guides will introduce you to their culture.

All our treks are often set-aside as non-public journeys - no massive, impersonal teams however tiny, individual experiences. Let Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure take you on your very own adventure trek to Mount Everest.

Extra time and expenses due to flight cancellation or delay

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla significantly reduces the journey time compared to the trek via Jiri (which we also offer). The flight is the shortest and most popular way of gaining access to the region but the mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable and sometimes even during the best part of the season, flights are delayed or postponed for one or more days. Cancellation and the delay of the trip only occur starting and end of the trip during the flight day. In case of the flight cancellation due to bad weather, extra expenses (Airport drop and pick up, extra night in hotel, Guide and porter extra days wages, except the number of days included in the package extra days extension due to flight cancellation or some other reason from individual clients must bear by themselves, etc.) might occurred which are not included in the package and one should ready to bear those expense. We also arrange for a Heli charter from Kathmandu to Lukla or return instead but this adds significant extra cost. While chartering heli because of the flight cancellation, the cost of the fare tickets will be deducted from the heli cost. We highly recommend that you take potential delays into account and allow for a week extra day in Kathmandu. Because of the flight delay, there will be changes in your travel date. Make sure that all the extra expenses occurred due to the unforeseen condition will be bear by your travel insurance company.

Additional Options:

They don't often speak any English. They carry two backpacks that they will strap together. But you are strictly prohibited not take advantage of the porter. They are usually very proud people and will attempt to carry things that are just too heavy. Which is not good. You can leave your unnecessary stuffs in Kathmandu your hotel or our office you will not need on the trek.

Have a take small personal daypack with you. Your daypack should contain everything you need during the day but keep it as light as possible. Examples: water, some warm clothing, your camera, sunscreen, etc. Note that luggage you hand the porters might not be available to you during the day as they sometimes set their own pace.

The visa on arrival fee can be paid for in cash in US Dollars, Pounds Sterling or Euros. You will also need a passport photo. Application forms are available in the immigration hall (or for electronic passports there are visa registration machines which, after inserting your passport, automatically fill out a form for you). You must firstly join the queue to pay the visa fee, and then go to the relevant immigration desk to obtain your 15, 30 or 90 day visa stamp. There can be long queues for visas on arrival.

Travelers Insurance

While you do trips through Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventure, you will submit copy of your insurance certificate. Your insurance policy must coverage accidents, medical expenses and emergency evacuation including helicopter rescue and then personal liability. At the time of you do Insurance you should read the policy carefully whether your requirements are included or not. Incredible Himalayan Sherpa also advocated your Insurance policy coverage cancellation curtailment, loss of luggage and personal effects. If you have must proof of the Insurance receipt, you will do initiative otherwise you can’t get any compensation.

Helicopter Evacuation

Sometimes, Helicopter rescue situations can come due to unexpected accident, bad weather, road obstruction/blocked or other reasons. Anywhere you options for a helicopter trip in order to back to home early due to health issue and due to an emergency that may arise during the trip. In any cases, the expense of any helicopter flight is the only responsibility of you or your policy should be coverage in this cases.

Flexible Timing

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla significantly reduces the journey time compared to the trek via Jiri (which we also offer). The flight is the shortest and most popular way of gaining access to the region but the mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable and sometimes even during the best part of the season, flights are delayed or postponed for one or more days. We can also arrange for a Heli charter from Kathmandu to Lukla instead but this adds significant extra cost. We highly recommend that you take potential delays into account and allow for a week extra day in Kathmandu.

Money and Tipping

Money and Tipping; It is best to bring a mixture of cash and traveler’s checks in a major currency [some currencies are not convertible to NPR]. USD, GBP, CAD, EUR, and AUD are generally fine. Ensure you have also small denominations. As a guideline for baseline spending money we suggest USD 8 - 10 per meal in Kathmandu / Pokhara and USD 30 – 35 per day whilst trekking in the Annapurna region (if you drink or smoke or plan some major shopping this could be higher). You should exchange enough money into Nepalese Rupees to last the entire time of your trek BEFORE leaving Kathmandu. There are no exchange facilities in the villages along the trail but plenty of money changers in KTM.

Tipping is, Since the 1960s when trekking in Nepal was developed, there has been a tradition for groups and independent visitors to tip their crews at the end of a trek but tips are not included in the trip price. If you are happy with the performance of the trekking staff, we suggest the following as a minimum: USD 7 per day of the wages or around one day’s wage for each week on trek.   As a rule, and through tradition, the head cook should get a little more than the porters and ‘Sherpa’ and kitchen crews. The Sirdar and Leader/guide should get a little more again.
