Everest Base Camp Trek Overview

About Everest Base Camp Trek:

It's called the "steps to heaven" for a reason. Every mountaineer's bucket list includes a visit to the world's highest mountain base camp. You'll realize it was a good decision when you see the scenery, which is breathtakingly beautiful and unlike any mountainous terrain you've ever seen before, changing from lush green farmland, dense forest, and glistening blue fast-flowing rivers to the barren land and glacial pools the higher you climb. Here you are, a warrior conquering Everest. All you'll do when you reach the top of the final climb, stumbling over loose rocks and onto a white canvas, is sit and admire what has become one of your greatest achievements.

Must Know Before You Go for Everest Base Camp Trek

  • All foreign nationals must share their passport and visa details at the time of booking, and also upon arrival.
  • Do not bring non-bio gradable materials.
  • Pay heed to the instructions given by the trek leader and guide.
  • Consumption of alcohol and other intoxicating substances are strictly prohibited.
  • Since Kathmandu-Lukla flights are dynamic, we recommend you keep a buffer day in hand.
  • ID proof Is Mandatory ( Passport, Driving License, Voter ID ) Either One Of them Is Required.
  • There are no ATMs in Lukla, so one is advised to carry enough money with them in case of need for an emergency. And even for buying trekking equipment in Kathmandu. It is one of the best and cheapest places to buy the same.
  • Tea is very expensive at Everest. But getting hot water won’t cost you much. Carry your own tea bags to be used while on the EBC trek.
  • Be prepared for extreme weather conditions, All accommodation on the trek to Everest Base Camp is in small tea houses, run by the local Sherpa people or Mountain Lodges. There are options for showers lower down on the trail, if you decide to use them, however, many people keep clean by using baby wipes and a bowl of warm water each day. The toilet situations can be difficult at times, as in the tea houses they are generally not Western-style toilets, rather just a hole in the ground instead of a toilet bowl.
  • Warm clothes, sunglasses, trekking boots, gloves, trekking stick, woolen caps among other trekking equipment you want to carry. However, the most important thing to bring is a good pair of trekking shoes that you have hiked in previously. Kathmandu is a great place to buy trekking clothes that are both cheap and of decent quality. If you can bring your own sleeping bag otherwise you can rent one for about 500-600 rupees a day.
  • If it’s sunny you might be surprised at how warm it can get during the day. Most trekkers wear t-shirts and shorts for the first few days while the elevation is still low. When the sun sets the temperatures drop quickly. Wear a warm hat while sleeping and take a Nalgene bottle filled with hot water and keep it in your sleeping bag to stay warm.
  • Make sure to drink plenty of water while on the trek. Do carry extra water bottles with you at all times.
  • A headache can be one of the first signs of altitude problems. Do carry suitable medications for the same. Small headaches are common and should not stop you from trekking or worry you. However, if it persists or increases, it might be advisable to ascend or even trek down.
  • Taking care of your skin and eyes are important. Sunburns happen much quicker at high elevation so make sure to apply sunscreen a few times a day and wear a hat. Sunglasses are a must-have and if you wear prescription glasses it’s good to come to Nepal with a pair of prescription sunglasses or at least a clip-on.
  • Layering allows you to easily regulate your body temperature and stay comfortable while Mount Everest trekking. It’s even better if your layers have zippers so that you have even more control of your body temperature.
  • EBC trek is one of the most beautiful Himalayan treks. So much so, that one would want to stop at every step and take pictures to make memories for life.
  • In the cold, your batteries will die much quicker than they do at home. This holds true for basically every kind of electronics you'll be using from phones to cameras to kindles. While some of the tea houses allow you to charge things, they all charge you for it (some more than others). An easy way to avoid this is to bring spare batteries and a portable charger.
  • Itineraries are based on information available at the time of planning and are subject to change. "Thrillophilia'' reserves the right to change expedition dates, people or itineraries as conditions warrant If a trip must be delayed or the itinerary changed due to bad weather, road conditions, transportation delays, government intervention, airline schedules, sickness, or other contingency for which Thrilllophilia or its agents cannot make provision, the cost of delays and/or other changes are the responsibility of the participant. Thrillophilia reserves the right to decline, or accept, any individual as a trip member for any reason whatsoever.
  • Liability for change in itinerary due to reasons beyond our control like a change in flight and train schedule, cancellation of flights/1trains, political disturbances, natural phenomenon, roadblocks, etc. will not be accommodated in the package cost. No bill will be reimbursed for any missed service/facility.
  • During a trip, in case the roads are blocked due to landslides or a reason that is beyond control, Thrillophilia will rearrange the itinerary for the travellers real-time, however, the cost of alternative accommodation will be borne by the customer as the hotels pre-booked execute their cancellation policies and are nonrefundable.
  • Because of any reason natural or personal, if the Trek or a particular activity is not completed, no refund will be processed.
  • The difference in the cost shall be borne by the client in case of any amendment in the package due to change in the number of guests, hotel change, itinerary change, etc.
  • If in case any traveller wants to or decides to leave the trip in the middle, all the expenses from that point onwards will be borne by the traveller. Neither the operator nor Thrillophilia will be held responsible for such decisions or for any refund.
  • The refund or compensation is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around-time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. refund or compensation are issued only when the whole trek is cancelled or called off on behalf of Thrillophilia.
  • At Thrillophilia, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event we might have to call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity or other issues like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that might prevent a safe trekking experience. In such cases, Thrillophilia will issue a Credit note summing up to the same amount as your trek fee that can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.
