Useful Information


Best Season 

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Everest Base Camp. The weather is sunny and warm with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist. 

 

Accommodation 

Kathmandu we will provide Three star Hotel with Breakfast And during the trek there is only basic Tea House/Lodge which doesn’t have luxury facility. All the rooms are in “twin share”. In some place during trekking we have private bathroom but in some area there is only share bathroom. The entire place has 24/7 hot water facility but during tea house in the trek it is chargeable. 

For Single supplementary will charge $100 extra. 

 

Meals 

For meals we provide Buffet Breakfast in Kathmandu which is included in the cost. During trekking we provide three meals per day (i.e. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner) from the selected menu as per available in lodge and tea house. Food during trek is not so well decorated as Kathmandu. However; most of the food is prepared by their local people in their field. The food is organic, delicious and quite healthy.
