Comprehensive Overview

Most trekkers, adventurers, and nature lovers want to visit Everest Base Camp at least once in their lives. We provide different Everest Base Camp packages to suit different tastes and preferences. This Everest Base Camp trek package is for those who want to experience this trek in a luxurious setting. You will be staying in the most luxurious hotels available in trek regions.

Your trek begins with a breathtaking 45 minutes flight from Kathmandu to Lukla (2,840m). From Lukla, we start our hike to Phakding. The hike will be a short one, and you can spend the rest of the day exploring Phakding - mainly its monasteries.

The second day of the trek takes you from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3,440m). You will be crossing several high-hanging suspension bridges - including the Hillary Suspension bridge and enter the Sagarmatha National Park. We will register our permits at the national park check post and trek through the dense forest. From this forest, you will catch the first sights of Mt. Everest. You will, however, continue your trek until you reach Namche Bazaar.

We will be acclimatizing at Namche Bazaar for a day, during which we will visit Sagarmatha National Park Visitor Center, and hike to Khunde and Khumjung. If you want to enjoy the views of Everest some more, you can hike to the Everest Hotel premises.

After a rest day at Namche, we head to Tengboche, enjoying the views of Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, and Ama Dablam. The path passes through several forests alive with musk deer, Himalayan tahr, and pheasants. On the way, we stop and visit Tengboche Monastery - the biggest monastery in the Khumbu region.

The following day, we leave Tengboche early morning and trek to Dingboche (4,360m). The journey takes you through several small villages to the wilderness as you enter Imja Valley by following the Lobuche River. Dingboche lies surrounded by almost a kilometer-long stone wall built to protect crops from cold wind and wildlife.

It is time to acclimatize for a day at Dingboche, as you have already gained substantial elevation. You will be savoring the stunning views of Lhotse Ama Dablam, Cho Oyu, and Makalu.

Our next destination is Lobuche, and the path takes us across several glacial moraines. You will also see a memorial, some collections of lodges, and glorious snow peaks.

The eighth day of your trek will be special as you will be setting your foot on Everest Base Camp. This will also be your most intimate encounter with Everest unless you want to climb it. We start the trek early morning, bidding goodbye to Lobuche and heading to Gorak Shep. We leave our luggage at Gorak Shep and hike to Everest Base Camp (EBC). After enjoying the views from EBC, taking lots of pictures, and resting for a while, you will return to Gorak Shep to spend the rest of the day.

After spending a night at Gorak Shep, you will wake up early morning and head to Kala Patthar Viewpoint (5,555m) to view the dawn breaking at Mt. Everest and other nearby mountains. After enjoying the early morning views at the Kala Patthar, we head back to Gorak Shep for breakfast. After breakfast, we head to Pheriche.

The hard part of the trek is over. Our return begins. We leave Pheriche and head to Tengboche, following a route through a dense forest. We will not miss visiting the famous Tengboche monastery.

From Tengboche, we head to Namche Bazaar. When you reach Namche, you will realize that you are finally back in a place throbbing with activities. You can explore Namche one more time. In Namche, there are plenty of Wi-Fi-linked restaurants, souvenir shops, bars, clubs, and even a Sherpa museum.

After a night at Namche, you will be heading to Phakding, following the Dudh Koshi River banks, and through dense forests.

From Phakding we head to Lukla. It will be your last day on the trekking trails. You will be spending one last night in the trekking (Khumbu) region.

The following morning, after breakfast at Lukla, you will be boarding a morning flight back to Kathmandu. We are sure that your flight will be a relaxing one - both mentally and physically.

We recommend our valuable clients to arrive in Kathmandu by 3 pm, a day earlier than the trek departure, to take part in the trip briefing. During the trip briefing, we will go through your luggage to ensure that you have not missed packing essential items you need during the trek. We also recommend you add one or two days extra for the trek because there is a chance that Kathmandu -Lukla - Kathmandu flights may get canceled or delayed due to bad weather, and we do not want you to miss your international flight back home.

Best Time To Trek To Everest Base Camp

The best time to trek to Everest Base Camp largely depends on the weather and personal preferences. If you want an easy hike with fabulous views, we recommend you to trek in spring or autumn. 

If you do not mind the cold and heavy snowfall, you can trek during winter. The summer in Nepal coincides with the monsoon. So, if you do not mind the rain or slippery track and enjoy the waterfalls, you can trek during summer.

Please note that adventurers and professional trekkers trek to Everest Base Camp throughout the year. Discovery World Trekking conducts Everest Base Camp treks throughout the year. 

Here is the overall weather condition at high trek elevations.

January to February

This time is the coldest, especially from early January to early February. There is heavy snowfall in the mountain resulting in extremely cold temperatures. Though the daytime may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the nighttime would be extremely cold. If you are allergic to extreme colds, you shouldn’t be trekking during these months.

Temperature: 15°C to -15°C.

March to April

With favorable weather, this is one of the best times to hike to EBC. You will get stunning views of the Himalayas ranges and glaciers. The weather starts to warm up during March, and flora and fauna, dormant during winter, come back to life. 

Temperatures start increasing from the mid of March, and with clear skies, snow mountains look their best. Many trekkers come to Everest Base Camp during these months.

Temperature: 18 °C to -12 °C. 

May to June

This time, just before the monsoon is a perfect time for an EBC trek. The monsoon starts in Nepal from the end of June and lasts till mid-August. The temperatures during these months are excellent for Everest treks. 

Temperature: 25°C to -5°C. 

July to August

Rainfall hits its peak at trek regions below 3,500m. Due to heavy rainfall, there are chances that flights to and from Lukla may get canceled. EBC treks get a little challenging due to rain but are not impossible. We do conduct treks during these months as well. The rainfall helps you to avoid the crowd while letting you enjoy spectacular views of rainfall. 

Temperature: 27°C to 5°C

September to October

It is also one of the perfect seasons for EBC treks bringing a large number of tourists on the trek trails. The monsoon slowly ends, and with cool temperatures and clear skies, a perfect trekking climate sets in. So if you want to enjoy the views in good weather, you can choose to trek in these months. In addition, the two biggest Nepali festivals - Dashain, Tihar - fall during these months, adding a festive mood to the whole country. 

Temperature: 20°C to 5°C.

November to December

As winter slowly begins, snow falls start in the Himalayas, making it eventually tough to trek. Nights get colder. November treks are quite popular due to sparkling days allowing great views of the Himalayas. The daytime temperatures are very stable and constant. However, from December, temperatures plummet, and it heavily snows in high trek regions. 

Temperature: 18°C to -10°C


The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.

Acclimatization during the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

Altitude sickness is common among trekkers at high altitudes, but it requires immediate treatment. To avoid altitude sickness during the trek, you will be acclimatizing in two places - Namche Bazaar and Dingboche. 

At Namche Bazaar, you can explore the famous Sherpa town while adjusting to the thin air. During the second day of acclimatization at Dingboche, we will climb the ridge behind the village to look at the stunning views of the peaks. 

Discovery World Trekking guides are well experienced at high altitudes and are wilderness first aid trained. 

Your health and safety are important to us, and we keep them as our priority. If you are rigorously affected by altitude sickness, the only cure would be to descend immediately. Your trek leader has the authority to decide whether to continue the trek or descend immediately, based on the overall condition. 

Trip Grade: Fitness level and Health

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek is both challenging and equally rewarding. Novice trekkers with normal fitness levels can complete the trek. However, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the trek. So, exercising to improve your stamina a few weeks before the hike is a good idea. 

Past hiking experience would be an advantage, but no technical experience and skills are necessary. Trekkers who can hike 4 to 6 hours a day at a reasonable pace with a light day pack can complete the trek. Having a positive attitude, self-confidence, and strong determination helps.

The trekking route involves hiking along the rocky mountain, steep ascents, descents, and straightforward paths. 
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 the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek

Every day you will be rewarded with new experiences - trekking, climbing, enjoying the scenery, taking photos, exploring the local villages, and tasting traditional dishes. Our experienced, friendly, and qualified expert guides/Sherpas will accompany you throughout the trek while providing information about the places you will be visiting.

We will assign porters to carry your luggage. However, you will also be carrying a small backpack for your valuables.

Each day starts with an early morning hot cup of tea/coffee. After breakfast, we set off on that day’s walk between 7 to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the trail. 

After trekking for three to four hours, we will serve lunch around noon on the route to the next destination. You can rest for an hour after lunch before continuing the trek. Afternoon treks will be shorter.  

Once you reach our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, you can snack on the extra dietary food. Before it gets dark, you will have free time to explore nearby places.

You will have your dinner from around 6 PM to 7 PM. After dinner, you can indulge in friendly conversations. Your expedition leader/guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. After this briefing, you can read books, play board games like monopoly, and cards, learn a few Nepali words from our crew, or watch mountaineering documentaries wherever available before heading to sleep. 

Communication during the trek

During the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek, you can use internet service at the lodges for a small service fee charge. You can use the internet at Yeti Mountain Home for free. Once we reach high altitudes, we will communicate with phones. 

We'll remain in communication with all our valuable clients through our trek lead at least once a day to ensure you're safe, feel right, and the trek is going on as planned. You can buy a sim card in Kathmandu. However, depending on the kind of network you use, you might get signals, but they may not be strong enough at high altitudes. 

Extra personal expenses on trekking

Though the package covers most costs, you will need to bring spending money to cover other expenses. Meals and accommodations in Kathmandu are up to our valuable clients themselves. You can find plenty of luxury and budget hotels/lodges in Kathmandu. 

Similarly, you will need money for visa processes, travel insurance policy purchase, beverages, snacks for the trek, hot (tea/coffee) and cold drinks, tips to the trekking crew members, souvenirs, etc. We recommend you to bring cash (dollars), which you can exchange for Rupees in Kathmandu.

Everest Base Camp trek travel insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory for the Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek. All trekkers must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate to Discovery World Trekking before starting the trek.

The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation, including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at the highest altitudes.

We can recommend insurance companies to help you, but we don’t sell insurance policies. 

We request all our clients to send their detailed insurance policy within a week of booking the trek. In emergencies, we will use your insurance policy and informational documents for quick rescue and transfer for emergency medical help, etc. 

Please call the insurance company and confirm if they cover heli-rescue and medical costs at the highest trek elevation (6000m). Do not simply rely on what the insurance companies say on their website.

Nepal Tourist Visa

All foreigners, except Indians, require a visa to enter Nepal. Most foreigners can get an on-arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport.

For a visa application, you will require a passport (valid for at least six months), a passport-size photo, and visa fees. The current visa fee is USD 50 for 30 days. 

Citizens from China and the SAARC countries will receive free visas. If you are from any of these countries - Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, or Afghanistan - you may not receive an arrival visa, so you will have to contact your local Nepali embassy. 

The Nepal government can change visa rules without notice. For the latest information, please visit - 

Currency Exchange in Nepal

Nepali Rupee (NPR/Rs) is the local currency.

(1 USD = ~ Rs.120 NPR).

You can exchange most foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and Thamel. They display the current exchange rates visibly to the public.

If you have Indian Rupees, please note that only Indian Rupee notes of 100 and 2000 are legal in Nepal. 

Despite having the security advantage, we prefer cash exchange over traveler's cheque to avoid lengthy processes and high bank commissions. 

You can also withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu. Several of those ATMs are open around the clock. You can withdraw up to Rs.35,000 for Rs.500 as a processing fee. 

If you use money exchange facilities at financial institutions and banks, they will impose four percent or more as a service fee. 

Most banks will not accept faded, torn, or old notes, so please make sure you have new and clean notes.

How much luggage can I bring to Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek?

We assign one porter for every two trekkers. The luggage weight limit for each traveler is 9kg. We do not allow our porters to carry more than 18 kg of luggage. However, we also expect you carry a small backpack for your valuables and things you will often need during the trek, such as a water bottle. We advise you to bring only the essentials during the hike. You can leave your excess luggage at your hotel. We also provide free luggage storage service for our valuable clients during their trek. 

Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek Safety

We guarantee client safety, security, and satisfaction. Client safety is our foremost priority. Therefore, we carry all the required gear, equipment, and first aid kits to face all situations. In addition, our trek leaders are extensive first aid trained and have comprehensive experience in the high Himalayas. During the hike, we will remain together. 

Responsible travel

We strongly believe in environmental sustainability. Therefore, Discovery World Trekking works with the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to organize eco-trips. On each of our trips, we try to meet the trekkers' as well as locals' expectations.  

Discovery World Trekking Crew

During your trek, our trained and well-experienced guides/Sherpas will accompany you, making sure that your hike is comfortable and memorable. Porters will be carrying most of your luggage. For every two trekkers, we assign a porter. However, one porter will not carry more than 18kg of luggage. If you require, we can allocate one porter per trekker. We never overload our porters.

Our crew members are locals born and raised in remote high Himalayas. Hence, their physical endurance in high altitudes is phenomenal. 

All our staff members are precious to us. We pay them well, and in addition, we provide them insurance, clothing, food, and lodging throughout the trek. They also receive medical care when ill or injured. 

We try our best to keep all our employees happy, as we believe that only a happy person can keep others happy. Moreover, our trek leaders:

  • are intensive wilderness first aid trained
  • have government-authorized trekking guide certificate
  • are fluent in English and other major languages.
  • have completed conservation and biodiversity training
  • are experienced in rock climbing


Nepali culture accepts tipping. However, tipping is at the traveler's discretion and should reflect the quality of service received. We recommend you to trek as a group at the end of the trek. 

Booking and payment process

Discovery world trekking is a Nepal government-authorized, registered, and bonded trekking and touring operator. We have been providing our service for more than a decade. 

We are members of the Trekking Agency Association of Nepal (TAAN) and the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Therefore, you can book the Discovery World Trekking trips with confidence.

We require 10-percent of the trip cost in advance to confirm the booking. You can pay using bank transfer, Westen Union, or online through our site. You can pay the remaining amount in cash, using a bank transfer, Western Union, or credit card after arriving in Kathmandu.

Please send us your documents like passport copy, passport size photos, travel insurance policy, and arrival and departure flight details within a week of booking the trek. 

The number of domestic flights for Lukla is limited, and the Lukla Airport is very busy during the trekking seasons. Furthermore, we will email you payment details along with available payment modes. 

Last minute booking

It is best to book trips in advance. However, for those unable to book trips in advance, Discovery World Trekking has a special provision - last-minute booking. 

In the case of last-minute booking, you have to pay 100% of the trip cost 24 hours before the trip departure. 

Though we try our best to operate treks at any time, in case of last-minute booking, you cannot hold us responsible for delays due to circumstances beyond our control, like bad weather, landslides, or lodging unavailability. You can contact Paul via call/Viber/WhatsApp at 977-9840055491 or email at [email protected] for more information. 

Trip extension

After trek completion, if you may want to stay a couple of days extra in Nepal, we can organize fun activities for you. You have several options, such as exploring regions in and around Kathmandu valley, Chitwan jungle safari, rafting, paragliding, or canoeing. 


After the Everest Base Camp trek, we will organize a farewell dinner in Kathmandu. After dinner, we will present you with a company t-shirt and a trek achievement certificate. It is also a great time for you to provide us with your feedback.


In case of delays to or from Lukla, we can arrange a helicopter to overcome these delays. But it will cost you anywhere between USD 500 to 1000 for an individual trip. 

Please Note: The Everest Base Camp trek includes fixed departure dates from Kathmandu, but we can accommodate your specific requests and schedule. Please review your designated departure dates, and if they do not suit you, let us know. We can arrange a trek at your convenience. 

The itinerary listed above is a general guideline. Please note that it might be necessary to modify the itinerary due to factors beyond our control such as unstable weather, inaccessibility, unavailability of lodging, and unforeseen governmental decrees.

 Although it is unlikely that significant changes to the itineraries will occur, you cannot hold us accountable for delays or consequences resulting from such delays. 

 In the event of an itinerary adjustment or need to redirect to other trails, your guide will ultimately decide on the rerouting after consulting with the group members and keeping in mind their interests as a whole. If an alteration is necessary, we will try our best to diminish the effects.

Trip Reviews

Discovery World Trekking

“EBC trek - as awesome as it can get”

5 - Excellent

Like all my holiday plans…. the panics and anxiety set in after we have made the decision to go on this adventure. Not going to say that this was an easy trek for me personally. But luckily, we had the DWT team on our side making things a lot easier from the start to finish. A friend had highly recommended contacting Paul from Nepal to organize our trip and must I say that it was one of the easiest and personalized experiences I've ever had. From the get-go, we had all the information that we need to plan the trip (eg. Maps and itinerary) and Paul was very responsive to all our inquiries (including how much money should we bring and how much training should we do). The trek was very enjoyable and we even learned some Nepalese along the way. I have a lot to thank our guide and assistant guide (aka photographers, waiters, Nepalese teachers, and everything else!) Dil and Kabir, who were very friendly and knowledgeable, and our speedy and smiley porter, Dhiraj, we couldn’t have made it up there without these guys. Dil was very patient, observant, and had been checking up on us all the way up making sure any sign of illness is caught early.

Monica and Chnthiya are heading to EBC.
He would constantly update Paul back in Kathmandu to ensure that help is ready should we ever need one. As we got higher, the altitude sickness did get the better of me and I was struggling to complete the trek. If it wasn’t for Dil encouraging me along the way and kept me companied as I walk at snail pace towards the end, I probably wouldn’t have made it back from EBC to our lodge on day 8. It got so bad that I was sure I would need a helicopter to pick me up from EBC. Like Murphy’s law… I was airlifted out from Gorak Shep the next day and managed to lose my wallet while running to the helicopter. Paul took good care of us from airport pickup, help with money exchange at a good rate, coordinating with the insurance and helicopter rescue, making sure my hospital stay was as comfortable as possible, helping with reporting my lost wallet to the police, and even took out to dinner on our last day. The experience on the trip was definitely one of the best and easily most memorable. I would highly recommend Discovery World for the trekking trip in Nepal. Remember to ask for Paul from Nepal. :) Pros:- - Hassle-free booking - Informative and friendly guides - Local knowledge (eg food place and shopping areas) - Personalised service Tips for the future trek:- - Would be useful to have a packing list (would recommend taking a few types of medicine eg. antibiotics, cold meds, antihistamine, throat lozenges, etc); - Information on accommodation facilities (ie hot shower or potential laundry stop, limited running water, etc.) - Make sure your insurance covers search and rescue (eg helicopter rescue) and medical expenses. I used Travel insurance direct, TID (AUS).

Very helpful. Good trekking guide

5 - Excellent

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 EBC.
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.

A World Away From Covid-19

5 - Excellent

We could not have asked for a better time trekking in Ruby Valley with our 4 children (12, 9, 5 & 1 years old). We had a wonderful guide, Dol, & 3 amazing porters Amrit, Prabhat & Gokul. They were so professional, helpful, patient, focused & a joy to get to know. They helped our family, with small kids, to cross over Pansang Pass & enjoy so many beautiful places. On this particular trek, we were able to visit their own home village, Chalish, & get to meet their immediate family members & learn about daily life thereof planting, harvesting & preparing important crops such as red millet & corn, cooking over a fire, visiting the school there, hearing the stories of childhood & seeing the cohesiveness of people working together. Our experience was unforgettable!

The package they offered made our time very smooth & well-provided for. Paul was always in good contact with us, answering any questions swiftly. He is very detailed-oriented & organized things so well for our family. We had no problem getting our visas at the airport, & the staff was waiting for us outside to take us to our hotel. On the trail, we ate the food of the villages we visited. We took refreshment from nature & a wifi-free part of the world! We had a great family time! Concerning Covid-19, we all made sure we tested negative before our trek. The staff took precautions, & we felt very safe as we went on the trail. There is no evidence of Covid-19 in these areas. We could enjoy a normal life again in the beauty of the Himalayas. We are confident this experience will remain in our family's hearts forever.


Which is the finest season for Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek?

Spring (March to June) and fall (September to November) are the popular choices among travelers to trek Everest Base Camp. However, you can find professional trekkers and adventurers hiking to Everest Base Camp throughout the year.

Discovery World Trekking conducts treks to Everest Base Camp throughout the year. 

Do I need to worry about altitude sickness during Luxury Everest Base Camp Trek?

During the luxury Everest Base Camp trek, your accommodation will be the finest, and you'll have many options generally not available in the Khumbu region. Though there are chances of catching altitude sickness, there are ways to avoid it.

  • Cut off caffeinated, alcoholic, and smoking items.
  • Drink at least 4 liters of water a day.
  • Trek slow. Don't skip the acclimatization days.
  • Use Diamox (if any symptoms show up).
  • Drink plenty of garlic soup.

How long do I need to walk per day during my trek to Everest Base Camp?

On average you would hike around 5-7 hours a day depending upon the landscape and destination. You'll stop by for acclimatization and sightseeing in many places so it won't be much of a big deal.

How safe is Everest Base Camp trekking?

Discovery World Trekking guarantees the safety, security, and satisfaction of its clients. Discovery World Trekking team will be carrying all the necessary gear, equipment, and first aid kits to face any situation. Our trek leads/guides have completed extensive first aid training. If a trekker falls sick, the guide has the authority to decide whether to continue the hike or descend immediately. In emergencies, we deploy a helicopter to bring you back to safety. Discovery World Trekking also uses oximeters to monitor the oxygen level of trekkers at high altitudes.

How long will it take to reach Everest Base Camp?

It takes 5 to 17 days to reach Everest Base Camp depending upon the mode of transportation and packages Discovery World Trekking offers.

What are the modes of transportation?

You can either hike or use a helicopter. Discovery World Trekking offers exciting helicopter treks to Everest Base Camp that can last 5 or 10 days. If you require, we can customize your tour as well. 

Is Lukla Airport convenient for the flight?

Lukla is at 9,500 feet (2,850m) above sea level. The higher the altitude, the lower the air density. So, the planes need to land at faster speeds. The weather in this area changes constantly, and the cloud cover can be extreme, leading to turbulence, which, though not dangerous, may be tough on passengers.

Lukla is the country’s busiest airport that serves as the port of entry and exit for trekkers hoping to ascend Everest. Discovery World Trekking will try to make your flight pleasant in any circumstances.

What if my flight to or from Lukla is canceled or delayed?

We recommend you to allocate extra 2 / 3 days for the hike to account for unpredictable weather. In rough weather, flights from Lukla to Kathmandu or vice versa get canceled. In such cases, the flight is automatically rescheduled for the next possible day. 

If you have a very tight schedule, you can charter a helicopter to make sure you are on schedule either for the trek or your flight back home. However, you will have to bear the helicopter cost. But, if the visibility is less than 1,500 meters, it is impossible to operate a helicopter, and Discovery World Trekking will reschedule the flight.

What is the elevation of EBC?

The elevation of EBC is 17,600 feet (5,364m). You will start the trek after flying into Lukla which is 9,383 feet (or 2,845m). Most trekkers hike to Kala Patthar (18,514ft / 5,555m) for sunrise or sunset.

Do I need any permits before starting the trek to Everest Base Camp?

You need Trekkers’ Information Management Systems (TIMS) card and Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit. Discovery World Trekking will help you with all those necessary paperwork and let you enjoy your holidays to the fullest.

Do I need travel insurance to trek in the Everest Region?

There are chances that you may need a quick helicopter ride back to Kathmandu to avoid health emergencies, so adequate insurance is a must. The insurance has to cover helicopter rescue & medical evacuation expenses at high altitudes.

What about the insurance of guides and porters?

Our team members - including guides and porters- have insurance, and the company covers their expenses.

Is there any age limit or criteria for trekking to EBC?

There is no age limit, but Discovery World Trekking does not recommend children to climb high altitudes. Trekking at high altitudes might have severe effects on a child's health. For adults, you need to be in a good physique and have a positive attitude. Discovery World Trekking does not recommend this trek to those who suffer from certain medical conditions such as heart or lung disease.

What is the luggage limit for porter and flight to Lukla?

Discovery World Trekking normally provides one porter for two trekkers to carry 18 kgs luggage (maximum 9 kg for each trekker).  

The weight limit for the Lukla flight is a total of 10 kgs, and you can hand-carry 5 kg, making your total 15 kg.

I am a vegetarian. Will I get enough meals during the trek?

Discovery World Trekking does not recommend non-veg items at trekking regions because the meat in such places may not be hygienic. We also strongly advise you to avoid dairy and cheese items along with alcohol. So, our packages are suitable for all - vegans, vegetarians, and non-vegetarians.

How is the drinking water in the trails to the Base Camp?
