Discovery World Trekking would like to recommend all our valuable clients that they should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier in the afternoon before the day we departed and start our  Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek the next day, To make sure that you’ll attend our Official Briefing as an important Pre-meeting. The reason we do so is we want to make sure that you get proper mental guidance and necessary information just to have a recheck of equipment and goods for the journey to make sure you haven't forgotten anything and if forgotten, then make sure that you are provided with those things ASAP on that very day. This pre-meeting will give a clear idea about the necessary types of equipment and the challenges you may face in the trek, information about the climates and weather condition,s and emotional support by the officials which will be a kind of motivational seminar for you to be prepared and excited about the trek. Similarly, it is best to have at least 1 or 2 days extra cause the flight from Kathmandu to Lukla or from Lukla to Kathmandu might be canceled or delayed due to bad weather and that might make you miss your international flight back to home.

November is the busy season people all over the world come at these months as it's the clearest month with sparkling days and amazing views of humongous mountains. The daytime temperatures are very stable and constant and due to this, the view of the clear blue sky and the mountain is phenomenal. From December, the temperature starts to get cold and begins to snow like diamonds in the sky.

Temperature- Temperature goes up to 18 degrees in the day time and falls down to 10 degrees.

The weather in the Himalayas can be unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly from day to night.

Acclimatization in Luxury Everest Base Camp Trekking in Nepal

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 hard compared to the Everest Base Camp 14 days’ trek. At Namche Bazaar, trekkers can explore the famous Sherpa town and adjust to the thin air. We will also be having 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

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek is both challenging and equally rewarding. This physically demanding trip requires a bit of proactive preparedness to succeed. Exercising and jogging regularly for a couple of weeks prior to the trip departure is a good idea to enhance our stamina. Novice trekkers with normal fitness levels can accomplish the trek, however, the fitter we are, the more enjoyable experience we will have during the trekking. Past hiking experience would be an added advantage but no technical experience and skills are necessary. Participants who are able to hike 4 to 6 hours a day at a reasonable pace with a light day pack can take part in this trip. The trekking route involves hiking along the rocky mountain, steep ascents, descents, and straightforward. To join in trekking, all participants should be in good health condition with normal physical fitness and have a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination. It is very important to make sure you are as healthy as possible before starting the trek. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us or consult with their physician before booking the trek.

A Typical Day on Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal

Every day will be rewarded with uncommon activities 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 of information and historical facts about the places as we trek. We will also be accompanied by the porters who carry our luggage. 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 onboard games like monopoly, cards, and watch available mountaineering documentaries. Most of the foreigners indulge in light and fun learning of the Nepalese language from our crew or read books before heading off to bed for a well-deserved sleep.

I wanted an extraordinary proposal for my partner so I thought EBC would be a good choice since we will be given astounding views and rewarding experiences. I searched for a good agency and luckily I came across the Discovery World Trekking. I've read good reviews about it so I sent them an email. Paul, the owner was quick to respond. October was our scheduled trip. But that was also the time I had problems with my back -I was diagnosed with lumbar strain 3 days before the Nepal trip. I didn’t want to spoil the whole trip with back pain so when I met up with paul, he advised me to take a rest and do a mini trek to acclimatize and see if I would have problems with my back. It was good advice instead of pushing me to just cancel right away. I felt the need to be honest with him regarding my purpose and he was cooperative. He said he will try his best to make our dreams come true. True to his word, he was very supportive. Paul even provided us stuff we failed to bring like comfy sleeping bags and duffle bags. He gave us a very helpful guide who spoke good English. Subraj. While we were more than half our trek, my partner experienced acute mountain sickness. In the middle of the night, subraj carried her on his back on the way up the hill where the mountain was located. Paul checked on us every once in a while.


Vera and Lynwil are heading to Everest Base Camp.
The following morning my partner was back on her toes again and we proceeded with our journey. It was a smooth trip. Discovery world trekking reserved good rooms for us. When we reached Dingboche, my partner again experienced mountain sickness the guide and told me that it was no good to carry on. We called Paul and he coordinated the rescue. That's the good thing about discovery. They keep track of their clients and see to it that their needs are met. In those crucial times in the middle s of the Everest region, we were lucky to have easily contacted paul. He sent a rescue helicopter right away. I was still able to pursue the proposal. Although it wasn't on my target location, EBC instead on the heli rescue back to Kathmandu. I felt so relieved that I could rely on discovery world trekking not just in making EBC dreams come true but making sure lives are safe and saved. He had problems with the insurance that he recommended, but he talked to the hospital management and we were given a discount for our hospitalization. We were surprised that the helicopter rescue was ridiculously expensive but again he did not allow us to shoulder the burden, alone. He would always find a way to help and make his customers feel happy. I don’t think other owners will do the same. He would always visit us till my partner got well. With discovery world trekking you build also a good relationship and we were able to leave Nepal knowing we have a good person to come back for in our next adventures. Just a tip. Don’t underestimate trekking in high altitudes. Prepare and get good insurance that will cater to your needs.

Hiked EBC (Everest Base Camp) for 13 days mid-May to early June. Discovery World definitely is a level higher than the other guided and overall service. Here are top few tips 1. Discover World guide, Soroz, took great pride in his daily work as guide and made sure you felt comfortable and provided better than average attentiveness to us...we were never rushed likewe saw others wereo and worked with us on the timing for each day so we fully enjoyed the hike.. Obvious difference when you look at other guide compared to Soroz 2. Take the 12 day option, you will need the time to acclimitize. Paul, owner, meets with you in person and goes through the itinerary and answers any questions first hand prior to leaving Khatmandu 3. Having a guide gives you relief in case of altitude sickness, and a person like Soroz who has traveled the path many times... We saw a lot of disoriented hikers attempting to do the trail solo, stand around and wait to see what the guides do... Possible yes solo, but the trail is not clearly marked in several key areas, easy to go wrong direction, and we saw several others get air lifted out in higher elevation 4. Give yourself a definite buffer of attitude least two days on either end of the hike... Flights are not guaranteed into or out of Lukla. Budget extra $200-$500 for added flight needs. Paul was great to help make alternate arrangements when we had difficulties getting out of Lukla 5. Budget about $25 per day while on the trail even though breakfast, lunch, dinner are covered... You will need added supplies, food, tea, etc purchased at some point. Snacks are also lrovided on the trail by Discovery World, no need to take many with you. 6. Water is very treatable by Steri UV pen. Soroz was great to make sure we had plenty of water each day from the lodge kitchen, very important for altitude. Don't bring too many water containers, we carried a camel back and added 1liter bottle and were more than fine from one stop to the next. 7. When altitude sickness symptoms started Soroz suggested local remedy of garlic soup that worked wonders, and was attentive to make sure I felt right checking on me while in my room and throughout the night at dinner time. Great company and great experience capped with genuine enthusiasm for us when we arrived to base camp! Paul also arranges a lot of your transportation in town to and from airport which was great. Will book next expedition in Himalayas with Discovery World.

This trip was a trip of a lifetime! We had a great time being looked after by Paul and Karan (our guide)! It was helpful being picked up from the airport and knowing we had someone to contact for help around Kathmandu!


The trek itself was made very enjoyable by Karan who was polite, funny, and motivating throughout! The lodges were simple but far better than we expected and the choice of food and meal times were really enjoyable! Thank you Discovery World Trekking for an experience we will never forget!
