We highly recommend liquids green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea and

Best Time To Trek

The weather is one of the most important factors to look at when deciding to trek to Everest Base camp. It is best suited to trek during the spring and the autumn. During the winters and monsoon, it becomes difficult to trek due to heavy snowfall, cold temperature and slippery trails. The average Everest Base Camp Temperature can range as high as -36° C (about -33° F) and can drop as low as -60° C (-76° F).

January to February

This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. This when there is heavy snowfall in the mountain and can result to extreme cold temperature. Though the daytime may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the night time would be extremely cold. It would not be suggested to trek during this time because the trek is challenging itself and the snow would make it tougher.

March to April

This is the best time of the season to trek in the Everest Base Camp Trek. The weather is very favourable through the trek. Stunning views of the Himalaya ranges and glaciers will be seen. Temperatures may start increasing from the mid of March and with clear skies, snow mountains will be seen at their best. Many trekkers often succeed their expedition in this time.

May to June

This is also the perfect time for trekking right before the rainfall. Nepal starts its rainfall from the end of June till mid of August. The season of spring and summer makes the trek much more enjoyable.

July to August

The rainfall hits at its peak during this time. Due to rainfall, it would not be advisable to trek during this season as the difficulty would rise. The trails would be very slippery. Flights to Lukla may get canceled due to landslides and flooding.

September to October

This is also one of the perfect seasons for the Everest Base Camp trek. This season is the peak of tourists due to the favourable weather. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets itself. The temperature goes up to 20 degrees in the day time and falls down to 5 degrees during the night time. This season is when trekkers enjoy trekking the most, with a clear sky, and an amazing view of the mountains. It is highly recommended as it’s the best time for the Everest Base Camp trek, usually from mid-September to end. Tourists in this season are also attracted by the main festival of Nepal; Dashain and Tihar.

November to December

As winter slowly begins, snow falls begin in the Himalaya region and it eventually tough to trek. Nights will start to get colder. November is the busy season as it is the clearest month with sparkling days. The day time temperatures are very stable and constant and due to this, the view of the clear blue sky and the mountain is phenomenal. From December, he temperature starts to get cold and begins to snow.
Please Note: The weather in the Himalaya can be unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly from day to night.

Acclimatization

Altitude sickness is commonly faced by many trekkers and will need immediate treatment and shouldn’t be left ignored. In this trek, we will be acclimatizing in two places; Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. This trek is relatively at ease compared to the Everest Base Camp 10 and 12 days’ trek. At Namche Bazaar, trekkers can explore the famous Sherpa town and adjust to the thin air. We will also be having a second-day acclimatization at Dingboche where we will climb the ridge behind the village to take a look at the stunning views of the peaks. Our trekking leader and guide are well trained and experienced at high altitude and they have extensive first aid training as well. Your health and safety are important to us and we guarantee that it will be our very first priority. In case you have been rigorously affected, the only cure would be to descend immediately. Also, it is important to know that your group leader has the definitive response to decide whether you can continue the trek based on your overall health conditions.

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health

The Everest Base Camp trek is a challenging yet rewarding trek. The hiking will be from 5 to 7 hours a day depending the on the destination, taking regular breaks where we admire the mountain views. The trek routes involve long climbs, steep descents and a steep forward trail in the rocky paths and the forests as well. To go on such treks, the fitter, the more comfortable and enjoyable the journey will be. If you have an experience or enjoy trekking, this may be an advantage for you. This trek is not recommended to those who suffer from sensitive medical conditions such as heart or lungs disease.

Trekking group/single

The group is generally about 2 to 12 packs on the trek. A group of 8 will be accompanied by a leader, assistant guide, and porters. We are also happy to organize a single private trek with your own family time frame.

A typical day on the trek

Every day will be rewarded with a unique experience of trekking, climbing enjoying the scenery, taking photos and exploring the local villages. During the expedition, we are accompanied by experienced, friendly and qualified expert Sherpa’s sharing information and historical facts about the places as we trek. We will also be accompanied by the porters who carry our luggage’s. However, we will be carrying our small regular day bag pack of necessary items.
The day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee. After packing our bags and gorging on a wholesome breakfast, we set off on the day’s walk around 7 AM to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the day’s walk. After trekking for three to four hours, lunch will be served around midday on the route to the next destination and we continue after about an hour of rest.
The afternoon walk is generally shorter; about two to three hours. Once we reach our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, we snack on the extra dietary food. We will have free time to explore nearby places.
Dinner is served around 6 PM to 7 PM. After dinner and before going to bed, we indulge in friendly conversations and discuss the experience of that day. The expedition leader/guide will brief us about the next day’s plan. After this briefing, we enjoy on board games like monopoly, cards and watch available mountaineering documentaries. Most of the foreigners indulge in light and fun learning of Nepalese language from our crew or read books before heading off to bed for a well-deserved sleep.

Communication on trek

You can contact your family and friends via the lodges, but once we reach high altitudes the connection may not work.

Water during the trek, you can buy either packed mineral water from local lodges and en route shop or filling boiled water at an extra cost. A water purification pill is suggested as drinking water.

Travel insurance

This trip grade is ranked the challenging difficult as it entails the risk of high altitude trekking, potential altitude sickness and other unforeseen events including sudden climate changes.

All the members of trekking the must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate to Discovery World Trekking.

In case of emergency situations, we will be using the insurance policy and informational documents you sent us.

The most importantly, tipping is at travelers discretion and should be relied on good service that does not form the part of wages for your Guides, porters and crew although they are very much appreciated. In Nepalese culture, tip is the accepted and honored way to saying thank you (Dhanyabada) for good service. Normally the tips are offered at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the trips in farewell dinner on the last evening or last day of the trek, to mark the end of the trip. The amount of the trip is entirely a personal preference that may be more or less depending upon your perception of service quality, length of trip, budget and appreciation of their work. It is important to Discovery World Trekking crews who professionally take care of you all the time during the trekking, inspire excellent service and offer enriching journey- a trip of once in a lifetime experience. We ensure that all of our crews including guides and porters are paid well and treated fairly with respect.

Everest Base Camp

I visited Nepal as a new international traveller and was very pleased with the professionalism, knowledge, as well as the kindness and heart of this group. They were always eager to help with any concern and to ensure that we had great experiences. They were very attentive to acclimatizing us properly to altitudes and we all made it to Everest Base Camp. I additionally felt strong enough to summit Kala Pathar with the company of our excellent guide and porter. I'm very grateful for an amazing experience and memories made in Nepal and credit much to this group. I'd recommend them many times over to anyone looking for something similar in Nepal! They additionally help us capture photographs and gave us a very nice and unexpected medal to honor our accomplishments.

Everest Base Camp Trek

Everest Base Camp Trek

After talking to multiple companies offering the EBC trek I found Paul and decided to go with Discovery World Trekking, here is why. 1. DWT is a local company to Nepal/Kathmandu. 2. The pricing is unbeatable. 3. Small (< 3> 4. Food was included in price! Here is my experience. After booking a few months in advance I landed in Kathmandu and to my surprise Paul (the owner) comes to the airport with your guide to personally pick you up. That was unexpected, and an incredibly nice touch.  Paul, my guide Milan, and myself met in Paul's office that night to discuss the trek and what to expect and what is needed. The next day Milan (my guide) met me at my hotel and took me around Thamel to do last minute shopping, helping me pick up a few essentials and get good deals. Again this was something that no other company offered and really was above and beyond what I was expecting.  They day of the trek Milan picked me up from my hotel and we went to the airport together. Along the trek Milan was incredibly knowledgeable and just an all around great guide to have. What really impressed me about Milan was that he ALWAYS put my needs first. When it was time to eat (breakfast, lunch or dinner) he did not eat until I was fed, he would stay with me and talk even though his food was ready. When I realized he was doing this I had to tell him to go eat! He was incredibly attentive and I HIGHLY recommend him if you use Discovery World Trekking.  Unfortunately for me, I ended up getting sick during the hike and Milan and Paul took care of everything. Paul personally took the time out of his day to meet me at the hospital and take care of all accommodations. He stayed with me until I was checked in and visited me the following day to see how I was doing. When i was discharged, he personally picked me up and took me to my hotel. Again, this was way above and beyond what I was expecting and was greatly appreciated. Paul makes you feel like you are family.  I cannot recommend Discovery World Trekking enough. The service they provide is probably the best service I have ever gotten from a company in my entire life. The personal touches Paul puts on his business are second to none, and the guide he chose for me, Milan, was the perfect guide!  If you are going to trek in Nepal, use Discovery World Trekking and ask for Milan!... you WILL NOT be disappointed!!!

Outstanding EBC trek!

Outstanding EBC trek!

With so many travel companies to choose from, there was not a single regret booking with DWT! After emailing several companies about an April EBC trek, Paul replied to all emails almost instantly. He was very helpful and quickly answered any questions we had.  Upon arrival in Kathmandu, our guide Dol met us at the airport to take us to our hotel. The next day we met with Paul to go over our trip. It is clear that Paul truly cares about the clients and their experiences.  Dol was an amazing guide - he was knowledgeable, yet easy going with a good sense of humour. The small group sizes of DWT trips makes the trek feel more personable and is more flexible should a problem arise. There were only three of us in the group. We had two porters, Suraj and Lakhman, who always had our bags in our rooms hours before we arrived.  EBC was a challenging trek, but DWT helped make it possible with the care and compassion they have towards their clients!  Thank you Discovery Workd Trekking!

Thank you to Discovery World Trekking for such an amazing trip to Everest base camp. My wife and I started looking into a trip to Nepal to do the EBC trek and from all the companies we emailed we are so happy we went with DWT. Each question or concern was answered almost immediately by Paul prior to coming to Nepal and it just got easier after that. Our guide, Dol, was with us to help whenever we needed, first picking us up at the airport to all the good times along the way. Dol was very good about answering all our questions about the mountains, people and lifestyles along the way and kept a safe easy pace for everyone in the group. Our porters, Lakhman and Suraj were very quick with our bags, making sure they were in our room before we arrived each day. Once we arrived at base camp Dol presented us with an achievement medal and Paul had a certificate made up for us. These little things made us feel like DWT really cares about their clients. We would definitely book with DWT when we come back to Nepal.  Thank you so much for this trip of a lifetime.

As someone who usually travels solo, joining a group is always something of a risky prospect, so it was a pleasant surprise to find a company like Discovery World Trekking which did their utmost to accommodate my needs and requirements. Right from the outset the owner, Paul Gurung, was responsive to my emails, and departure was guaranteed for the I4-day EBC Trek on the date I chose--7 April. The pre-trip service was professional and courteous and from the moment I landed at Kathmandu Airport and was met by our young and personable guide, Dol Gurung, I knew all was going to be well. My group consisted of only a young Canadian couple in addition to myself, and each day was memorable and trouble-free, representing excellent value for money. The itinerary was well paced, the guest houses as comfortable as their locations allowed, and everything was very well managed. A special word of thanks must also go to my porter, Suraj Lopchan, who stood in as my guide on two occasions on the trek when I went at a different pace to my trail-mates. i will certainly travel again with Discovery World Trekking...and surely that is the sincerest recommendation of all?

Discover Everest Base Camp with Discovery – you won’t be disappointed.

I just got back from a trek to Everest Base Camp with Discovery and highly recommend booking a trek with them!  Aside from enchanting scenery, the trek to EBC gave us the chance to experience Sherpa culture, visiting monasteries, museums and witnessing mountain life for ourselves. I loved walking just for the pleasure of it, through villages, rhododendron forests, past colourful prayer wheels, across suspension bridges, behind yak trains and, my favourite, through valleys where the mountains circled us like the spine of a massive sleeping dragon.  At night, I loved sitting around the fire and listening to the guides and teahouse owners in animated conversations I didn’t understand but which were always lively and filled with laughter.  Our guide, Dol was wonderful. He was quiet and unassuming but also filled with knowledge about the region. I loved seeing his photos from other treks as well as learning about his life in Nepal and the village he where he grew up. It was also lovely having someone to take care of us. He chose excellent accommodation, made sure we were always looked after with tea and refreshments and set a good walking pace for the trek. We would not have had the same experiences if we’d set off alone and we definitely wouldn’t have learnt as much as we did about the Solukhumbu region, the Sherpa culture or the mountains themselves. Our porter was incredible too, always arriving before us so our bags were ready in our room and basically just a true champion like all the other amazing porters we witnessed on our journey. The trek to EBC is pretty unforgettable. Not only are you surrounded by breathtaking scenery every second of the day but you get to experience for yourself the amazingly warm hospitality of the Nepalese people, witness their unique way of life and carry with you the sense of personal achievement that comes with visiting the highest point on earth. If you do decide to take on the challenge Discovery is definitely the company to do it with.

“Discovery World Trekking for Top Everest Base CampTrek”

It is my pleasure to write a review for Discovery World Trekking (DWT). My husband, son and myself recently did the Everest Base Camp Trek with Discovery World Trekking. I have to say that it was one of the best experiences of our lives! We loved all of it – from the sights and sounds of Thamel to the thrilling flight to Lukla, the spectacular views on the mountain, the good hearty food and the amazing people of Nepal. After much research I had chosen to book with Discovery World Trekking based on their great reviews, the quick replies and attention given to us by Paul – the CEO of the company – and the fair price. What appealed to me as well was the fact that it is a local company. I wanted to cut out the middleman and contribute more to the local economy. We received a warm welcome at the airport by Paul and Dol our guide. After being driven to our hotel, Paul briefed us on all the details of the trek and Dol made sure we had all that was needed for the trek (quality sleeping bags, …). They even helped us get sim cards for our phones! During our Trek we were presented with some unexpected challenges but the expert troubleshooting, support and excellent guidance we received by both Paul and our truly amazing guide Dol made what could have been a very bad experience actually wonderful! Anyone can guide an uneventful trek but its when things don’t go as planned that you need to be with a company and guide that know what they are doing and have the right resources. I am convinced that any other company would have had us descend without meeting our objective of reaching EBC but DWT went over and above to ensure that we were all safe and happy. From the moment we landed in Kathmandu to the moment we returned to the airport for our return flights we were in great hands. I can’t tell you how fortunate we feel that we chose DWT for our trip and I am already dreaming of going back to experience more of this beautiful country and will no doubt be using DWT. We consider Paul  I recommend Discovery World Trekking 100%. Diane from Montreal, Canada

I made plan to trek in Everest Base Camp trekking during my holiday period. I booked through online with Discovery World Trekking. It was my first time I have ever been in Himalaya adventure thus I was inexperienced and thinking about how to do successful trek. Discovery World Trekking made me both mentally and physically ready through the precious suggestion from mail. During the trip, entire team were very frankly and helpful. Guide has extensive knowledge who told me about the Sherpa history, museum and monastery so deeply. Service was highly standard. I completed 15 days Everest base camp trekking. DWT is professional team who made my trip, a life time experience. I cannot wait I will be back soon.

Discovery World Trekking exceeded far beyond my expectations for the EBC trek. Right from the beginning Paul made us feel very comfortable with having everything for our trek lined up and ready to go. Dil and Dol, our guides were extremely knowledgeable and helpful on the trek. Anything you could ever need was already taken care of before you even knew you needed it. Dil and Dol were also so much fun to talk with and get to know. I felt as though we were all one big family by the end of the trek. Between teaching us card games as well as how to speak Nepali, they were far more than just trekking guides. I would recommend Discovery World Trekking and the EBC trek to EVERYONE!

Our trek to Everest Base Camp was truly an amazing journey one step at a time. Discovery World Trekking guides and porters took care of every detail so we could concentrate on the incredible beauty of the Himalayas and daily hikes. They seemed to know when you needed help before you did. By the first evening we felt like family telling stories, learning more about Nepal and having lots of laughs. Our guides were in contact with Paul Gurung in Kathmandu in anticipation of our return making sure every contingency was explored to get us back on time. This trek was more than a hike to Everest Base Camp. It was learning about the history, religion and culture of the Nepalese people and the stories about Everest which were so grateful to have experienced. It was the trip of a lifetime. Thank you

“Incredible Journey, Incredible Support”

I recently spent one month in Nepal and my itinerary consisted of activities in the Kathmandu Valley, Everest Region, Chitwan, and Phokara. Having been recommended to the DWT team by a friend well in advance to booking the trip, I got in contact with CEO Paul via Facebook and simply put, the rest is history. Right from the get-go, Paul was so incredibly friendly and supportive, giving me a huge amount of information and various options for how I wanted to construct my trip as well as extra (and very helpful) suggestions. We remained in contact right up until my departure from Australia and upon arrival, 'Paul from Nepal' ensured that I got the absolute most out of my time in this beautiful country. Paul and his team worked tirelessly to make me feel at ease and Paul himself always made himself available for contact via text or call 24/7 in case I had any queries on the fly. I was delayed getting to the Everest Base Camp region due to bad weather for two days and was never caught out of a room to stay and Paul made huge efforts to get me on the soonest available plane. My guide Hari, and porter Dole were amazingly helpful and easy to get along with (very important when trekking by yourself) and always had great information on the different areas along the route. Upon successfully returning from my trek, Paul organised buses to and from Chitwan and Phokara, and often checked in to ensure that I was comfortable and that everything was going well. Paul and his DWT put you first, and I have yet to experience better service and attention to detail in any of my other organised travel experiences. I would recommend DWT to anyone wanting to experience Nepal and its plethora of amazing sights and sounds and can safely say that if it weren't Paul, my trip simply would not have been nearly as incredible as it fortunately was. Amazing!

After much shopping around we ended up choosing Discovery World Trekking because of online reviews and consistent thorough contact with Paul. We couldn’t be happier with our end result. Our guide Krishna  was the best, absolutely worth requesting. He was knowledgeable, driven, met the needs of a diverse group of people, and was incredibly warm and kind and open throughout our trek. Our porters were outstanding. The teahouses were well-chosen – comfortable always and sometimes nice. In the end when it snowed on one of our pass days, we ended up shifting the remainder of the trek and Paul was incredibly flexible and jovial about the change in plans. I would go on another trek with this company, with this guide, in a second. Maybe Annapurna…
