Comprehensive Tour Package Details

This is perhaps the most popular trek in the world. It takes you close to the top of the world at an elevation of 5,364m / 17,598ft. The trek takes place in the Mt. Everest region - Mt. Everest (8,849m/29,031ft) is the highest mountain in the world.

The trekking area passes through breath-taking landscapes, spectacular lakes, glaciers, traditional Sherpa villages, and remarkable Buddhist monasteries that provide you with an insight into how local people adapt to these hostile terrains.

The trek with EBC destination starts with a scenic 40-minute flight to Lukla, followed by a short trek to Phakding (2,610m/ 8,562ft). The landscapes you will be trekking will be spectacular, and exotic. On your trial, you will find yourself surrounded by gigantic mountains, and as you progress, you will reach Namche Bazaar (3,440m/11,268ft) - our destination for that day.

To adjust our bodies to high altitudes, we will acclimatize one day at Namche Bazar. But you have various options to spend the day. You can visit the Sherpa museum that provides a peek into the Sherpa lifestyle and their history, hike to Syangboche Airport for stunning views, visit yak farms, or walk up to Hotel Everest View Hotel (one of the highest placed hotels in the world - 13,000ft). You can also visit the famous Khumjung Monastery, believed to house a yeti scalp.

The next day we will leave Namche Bazaar and trek to Tengboche - the village famous for Tengboche Monastery (3,867m / 12,687ft). The environment here is calm, peaceful, and spiritually rewarding. After spending the night at Tengboche, we will wake up early in the morning and continue our trek to Dingboche (4,410m / 14,470ft).

From the path, you will be able to catch the awe-inspiring views of Mt. Ama Dablam. By the time you reach Dingboche, you will have gained a remarkable altitude. So we have allocated the next day for acclimatization at Dingboche.

While acclimatizing, we will take a short trek to Dingboche ridge to enjoy the panoramic views of Lhotse, Island Peak, and the backside of Ama Dablam. To the north, you get to see glorious mountains that rise over the Khumbu Khola ValleyAfter spending a day at Dingboche for rest and recharge, we will continue trekking towards Lobuche the next day.

An exciting path awaits as we ascend via Thukla Pass and reach the memorial park built to commemorate those who could not make it from this region. Our destination awaits a little further at Lobuche (4,940m / 16,210ft), where we will be spending our night.

The eighth day of your Trek will be an extraordinary one because, on this day, you will reach the destination (5,364m / 17,598ft). But we start in the morning, leave Lobuche, move along the Khumbu Glacier and arrive at Gorak Shep. Here, we will be leaving our belongings and heading upwards to the destination.

Reaching this spectacular destination is a life-changing experience. Finally, your determination and willingness to endure difficulties will have triumphed, and you can count yourself among the very few people who have reached the EBC. From the destination, among other views, you will see Khumbu Glacier - the world's deepest glacier at 4,900m (16,100ft). After having some amazing time at the Base Camp, we will return to Gorak Shep, where we will be spending this day.

Early in the morning the next day, we will ascend to Kala Patthar (5,555m / 18,208ft) to catch the heavenly glances of the early sun rays hitting Mount Everest. We will descend back to Gorak Shep, have our breakfast, and head to Pheriche. Since we will have covered a long distance, we will be spending that night at Pheriche.

After spending the night at Pheriche, we will descend to Namche Bazaar the next day. Our path will move along the Dudh Koshi river bank and cross Tengboche village. By reaching Namche Bazaar, you have almost come to the end of the trek. We will spend the night at Namche Bazaar.

On our 11th day, we will be leaving Namche Bazaar and returning to Lukla, which marks the end of your trekking, and you will be staying at Lukla for the night. This marks the end of your Tour Package.

If everything goes as planned (depending upon the weather), you will be flying back to Kathmandu via Lukla Airport the next morning.

Discovery World Trekking recommends all our clients arrive in Kathmandu at least 24 hours earlier than the trip departure date for last-minute preparations. If, in case, you missed the online trip briefing, it will also provide us time to conduct an in-person briefing. Since there are chances that flights to or from Lukla might run behind schedule, we also suggest our clients add two days extra to the trip length.

Things to know about the Package

The word Everest conjures up feelings of bravery and inspiration for all generations. Legends -Tenzing Norgay & Sir Edmund Hillary - first summited Everest more than half a century ago in 1953, and since then, thousands of people have been coming to this region - some just for sightseeing, some for trekking, and very few for climbing. 

The legendary EBC trek start from Lukla, which has a population of less than 1,500 and is located at the height of 2,860m.

This area is very thinly populated, most likely because of the harsh terrain and frigid climate. So, as you trek on this route, you will be traveling in the high-altitude wilderness. However, you need not worry as you will be in good hands.

Trek Package

When you arrive at Tribhuvan International Airport, we’ll welcome you and take you to your hotel. On the trek departure date, we will board you on a plane for a scheduled 40-minute flight to Lukla.

Welcoming you to Nepal

We provide you free transfer service from Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) to your hotel when you arrive and from your hotel to the TIA when you depart.

We highly recommend liquids green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, fresh vegetable items, and garlic soup(must) at high altitudes.

Though plenty of non-veg items will be available, we recommend avoiding them for quality concerns. We highly suggest you avoid dairy, cheese items, alcoholic drinks, caffeinated items, or hot chocolates.

Best time to trek

The climate is the determining factor that hugely influences the success of the trek. But, it is difficult to predict the weather in the Everest Region accurately.

Though professionals, locals, and thrill-seekers trek to the Base Camp throughout the year, the best time to trek to EBC is either Spring or Autumn for warmth and a higher possibility of clear skies.  

The trek during winter and monsoon becomes a bit challenging but doable. DWT organizes trek during these seasons as well. 

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and the temperature may change quickly.

EBC : The season of the cold (January and February)

This is the coldest season with heavy snowfall and low temperatures. Daytime is mostly warm, but nights are frigid. Though DWT conducts the Trek during these times, we do not recommend you to trek during these two months, especially if you have cold allergies. However, if you decide to trek during these months, our team will ensure that you are safe, secure, and comfortable. 

Temperature: 15°C to -15°C.

EBC : The best season (March to April)

March to April is also a fabulous season to hike the Base Camp. This season provides stunning views of the Himalayas and fascinating glaciers. From March, the weather starts to warm up, and by the mid of March, the skies are clear, and the snow mountains will look at their best.

Temperature: 18 °C to -12 °C.

EBC : The good season (May to June)

May to June is also a great time to trek, as it is a pre-monsoon period. Normally, it starts to rain in Nepal from June and lasts till mid-August. So if you want to avoid the rain and trek while the temperature is warm, this is the perfect time for you. The views during this time are exciting and beautiful.

Temperature: 25°C to -5°C.

EBC: The season of rainfall (July to August)

During this time, the rainfall in Nepal is in its full swing, and flights to Lukla may get canceled. Trekking starts to get challenging but not impossible. If you decide to trek during this period, DWT will ensure your safety, security, and comfort. One advantage of trekking during this season is that the trails are less crowded, and the waterfalls look lovely.

Temperature: 27°C to 5°C.

EBC: The perfect season (September to October)

September to October is also one of the perfect seasons for the EBC Trek. As the monsoon slowly retracts, the weather looks very inviting, and a swarm of trekkers will be on their way to the Base Camp. Because of the weather, views, and comfort level, we recommend you to trek during this time.

One additional advantage- this is also the festive season in Nepal, and if you trek during this time, you will get to enjoy the festive celebrations.

Temperature: 20°C to 5°C.

EBC : The fine season (November to December)

The month of November provides a great time to trek, the skies are clear, and the views of mountains are breathtaking. The daytime temperatures are very stable. As November progresses, the winter slowly appears, snowfalls begin, and trekking starts to get tougher. By December, the temperature falls to yearly lows. 

Temperature: 18°C to -10°C

How long does it take in order to acclimatize to reach EBC?

The highest altitude we will be reaching is Kala Patthar at 5,555m. Our trip itinerary consists of two days of rest and acclimatization at Namche and Dingboche. Altitude sickness is quite common but preventable. However, if you ignore the symptoms, it might get serious.

Discovery World Trekking guides and trek leaders have completed extensive First Aid Training and use oximeters to monitor your oxygen level for early altitude sickness detection. Moreover, we have designed our itinerary to prevent altitude sickness. However, for severe mountain sickness cases, the only cure is to descend immediately. Your group leader has the authority to stop ascent, keeping in mind the conditions of vulnerable people.

EBC Trip Grade: Fitness level | Health info

 Exercising regularly for a couple of weeks before the trip departure enhances your stamina. Anyone with normal fitness can accomplish the trek. However, the fitter you are, the more enjoyable your experience will be. We recommend you conduct stamina developing exercises a few weeks before your trip departure.

Past hiking experience would be an added advantage, but no technical experience and skills are necessary. Participants who can hike 5 to 6 hours a day, at a reasonable pace, with a light day pack can complete this trip. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions such as heart, lung, and blood disease should inform us or consult their physician before booking the trek.

EBC Trekking in group | single

We organize groups as well as private treks. Group discounts are available based on your team size. The bigger your team is, the more discount you will get. Please view our price list for details. Just click on the - we offer group discount -on your right.

Every day brings a unique experience of trekking, climbing, enjoying the scenery, taking photos, and exploring the local villages. Qualified expert Sherpas will be sharing information and historical facts about the places as you trek. 

The day starts with breakfast, and then we set off on that day’s walk around 7 AM to 8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the walk. After trekking for three to four hours, we will have lunch and take some rest, then continue forward to that day's destination.

Once we reach our overnight lodge/tea house/tent, we snack on the extra dietary food. You will have some free time to explore nearby places.

You will have dinner between 6 PM to 7 PM, and after dinner, we will have time to socialize. Your trek leader will brief you about the next day's plan. After the briefing and before going to bed, you will have time to enjoy yourself by reading, playing monopoly, cards, or watching mountaineering documentaries.

Communication during the Trek

You can enjoy wi-fi at lodges/restaurants/hotels for an extra cost, but at high altitudes, communication will be through phones. Our DWT office in Kathmandu will be in contact with each team through the trek leaders at least once a day. The mobile signal at high altitudes is poor. If you want, you can buy a local sim card easily in Kathmandu.

You can get Wi-Fi access at lodges/hotels for extra cost.

Extra personal expenses during the trekking

Meals and accommodations in Kathmandu are excluded from our package. You can easily book hotels/lodges (both luxury & budget)  online, or we can do it at your request.

You will need to bring some spending money for meals and accommodations in Kathmandu, visa processing, travel insurance policy purchase, beverages, snacks, hot and cold drinks, tips to the trekking crew members, souvenirs, etc. We recommend you to bring cash (dollars or other major currencies), which you can change to Rupees. You can only use Nepali currency in the Nepali market.

Electricity and battery recharge, water on the EBC trek

At our trekking paths in lodges/hotels, electricity for the camera and mobile battery recharge is available at an extra cost. You can either buy packed mineral water from the lodges or fill your water bottle with boiled water there. We can provide you with a water purification pill to make water drinkable. 

You shouldn't drink water from the rivers, taps, or wells on the path as it might not be drinkable as it seems.

Travel insurance for the Trek

Travel insurance is compulsory specifically for this Trek. All the trekkers must provide a copy of their comprehensive travel insurance policy certificate to Discovery World Trekking. The policy must cover medical and emergency repatriation - including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at high altitudes (up to 6000m).

We can recommend insurance companies based on the recommendation of our previous clients, but we do not sell insurance policies. 

Trekking members are kindly requested to send their details - including insurance information, once they book for the trekking. In case of emergencies, we will be using your insurance policy and the informational documents you sent us. It will help us arrange a quick and effective rescue operation and transfer to a medical facility if required.

Before buying travel insurance, call the company and recheck if they have heli-rescue and evacuation at altitudes up to 6000m.

On-arrival Tourist Visa

All foreigners except Indians require a visa to enter Nepal. You can get an on-arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport, and you can extend your visa at the immigration office. You can find the details here -

For visa application, you need the following things.

  • a passport with six months validity
  • a passport size photo
  • the cost of the visa is USD 50 for 30 days, which has to be paid in cash on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport

Please note that citizens from some countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan may not receive the on-arrival visa. So, citizens from these countries need to contact the nearest Nepalese embassy.

Money exchange in Nepal

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

(1 USD = ~ Approx Rs.110-120 NPR)

You can exchange most foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Legal currency exchanges have their ongoing rates displayed visibly on their premises. Please be advised that only 100 and 2000 Indian Rupee notes are legal in Nepal. If you carry other Indian notes, they might be confiscated.

We prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and high bank commission rates. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from ATMs in Kathmandu and Thamel itself; these ATMs are open around the clock. If you are using a foreign card, the maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee.

If you use the money exchange facility at banks and financial institutions, the service fee charge imposed is about four percent or more depending upon the bank.

During the trek, there are no banks or money exchange services. Hence, you should exchange your money in Kathmandu.

Most banks in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn, or faded. Please ensure that you have new and clean notes.

How much luggage can I take during this trek?

The luggage weight limit is 9 kg per trekker. A porter carries luggage for two persons, and the maximum weight they carry is 18 kgs. We never overload our porters and expect you to carry a small backpack with your valuables and essentials. You are free to store your excess baggage either in your hotel or at the Discovery World Trekking store. DWT store facility is completely safe and free of charge. 

Safety precautions during Trek

Discovery World Trekking pays special attention to client safety, security, and satisfaction. We carry all necessary gears, equipment, first aid kits, and all of our trek leaders/guides have received first aid training.

If someone in the team gets sick, your team leader might stop ascending. In emergencies, we will perform swift helicopter evacuation. Since we will be trekking in groups, we will remain safe together in the Himalayan wilderness. 

Responsible Ecotourism

Discovery World Trekking works for sustainable tourism, so we try hard to minimize disturbing nature. We work with Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) to make sure that our trips are eco-friendly, in the interest of tourists and - the locals.

Discovery World Trekking / Hiking Team

During the 12 days trek, you will be accompanied by well-trained and licensed staff who have spent years trekking/climbing. We will arrange porters for you, and they will carry a maximum weight of 18 kg ( 9 kg per person). However, if you need more porters, we can arrange them as well. 

Our crew members are local people born and raised in the high Himalayas, and their physical endurance is second to none. All of our team members - including porters, have insurance, and we take care of them in every way. 

Our team members have:

  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid Training
  • Authorized Trekking Guide Training Certificates
  • Fluency in speaking English and a major Language
  • Conservation and biodiversity training

Tipping is at the client's discretion and should reflect the quality of service. Nepali culture accepts and honors tips as a way of saying thank you. It is better to provide tips in a group and on the last trekking day.

Discovery World Trekking

Lifetime dream come true, thanks to DWT

Marina R
5 - Excellent

I have just completed a 12 day trek to EBC with my son. A special moment in my life I will cherish forever. David arranged the trek with DWT, from the very beginning he said the communication with Paul was excellent, nothing was too much for him. We meet Paul and my whole apprehension of nerves was soon settled, he was a warm heartfull friendly person, ready to make our trek the best. Everything was arranged and we meet our guide Saroz. I felt straight away we were going to be fine as Saroz took the lead with his knowledge and experience he has. I felt he protected me all the way, never left my back. I felt his hand even when I had a slip in the loose gravel. David and him were mates from the start. The tea houses were the best, after a weary day of trekking all we had to do was take a seat and Saroz had everything taken care of, even a treat of fruit every night. Our porter never let us down either , happy face always A special moment also was a medal presentation when base camp was finally reached, it was very special and lifted our weary spirits. The photos and memories I hold in my heart will stay forever thanks to DWT Thanks again to the team at DWT, would highly recommend them if you are considering a trek in Nepal or any other adventure. ??

Discover EBC with Discovery – you won’t be disappointed.

5 - Excellent

Just got back from a trek to EBC 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 colorful prayer wheels, across suspension bridges, behind yak trains, and, my favorite, 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 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 learned 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.

Amazing experience

5 - Excellent

Came to Nepal to do the EBC trek with my brother. Found Discovery on line and it was such a lucky break. Paul the owner was from the get go a great at communicating via email all the details and organized everything from our flights to Lukla pick up at airport, porters and guides. we were welcomed at the airport with flowers and taken to our hotel. he was always a phone call away happy to solve any issue. the guide we were assigned was incredible. his name is Karan and he was great at looking after us and making sure we stuck to the scheduled. we absolutely loved it all! despite the cold and long days it has been such an empowering experience one we will remember for years to come. I honestly can't recommend Discovery any more than I have they are reliable, friendly and also very reasonably priced. Thank you for everything ! Tova


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 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.

Do I need to bring medicines for trekking to EBC?

If you are allergic to specific medicines, it is better to consult your doctor and bring your own medicines. Discovery World Trekking regards its clients as family members and takes safety measures to avoid altitude and other sicknesses.

Is there an airport pick-up service by the company?

You will see a Discovery World Trekking representative welcoming you outside the Tribhuvan International Airport arrival lounge holding a pamphlet with your name on it. S/he will take you to your selected hotel in a private vehicle.

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.

Is there a cancellation or refund policy?

Discovery World Trekking has cancellation and refund policies. Please visit our terms and conditions page for more information.

What is the booking and payment method for the trek?

We require a 10% advance for confirming the booking, which you can pay by bank transfer, western union, or online through our site. You can pay the rest of the trip cost in cash, by bank transfer, western union, or using a credit card. We will email you payment details- including modes of payment available. 

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

Bottled water is easily available at a low cost. But you cannot use plastic bottles in the Everest region. So, it is better to carry a thermos with boiled and filtered water. You may need to use water purification drops or tablets, which you can either bring from your own country or buy in Kathmandu. Discovery World Trekking also provides water purifier pills.

What is the level of trekking to the EBC?

The trekking level is challenging. Discovery World Trekking tries its best to make your journey as safe, easy, adventurous, and joyful as possible.

What is the luggage weight limit for the Lukla flight?

The weight limit on flights to the Everest region, basically to Lukla, is 10 kg. You are allowed to hand carry 5 kg making your total 15 kg.

Is Wi-Fi available during the trek?

Yes, most guesthouses offer Wi-Fi for a small charge.

Can individuals of every age group hike to the Base Camp?

There is no age limit for this Trek. However, we do not advise children below ten years of age to climb high altitudes. All trekkers need to be in normal shape and able to walk at a normal pace for 5 or 6 hours a day. We do not recommend this trek to people with sensitive medical conditions such as heart or lung disease. 

What is the temperature at the base camp now?

The climate on the way to EBC is constantly changing and difficult to predict. Here is a list of probable temperatures and weather conditions each month.

What is the best Season for trekking EBC?

Spring (March to June) and Fall (September to November) are the best seasons to trek. You can make arrangements if you wish to avoid the crowds in these seasons by contacting the tour operator.

Note: DWT can make it happen in any season you want with all the safeties and fun.

Do people get altitude sickness at EBC?

Altitude sickness is common at such heights. However, with precautions, they can be avoided. Here are some ways to prevent altitude sickness.

  • Avoid caffeinated and alcoholic drinks.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Drink at least 4 liters of water a day.
  • Trek slow. Do not skip the acclimatization days.
  • Use Diamox (if any symptoms show up).
  • Drink Garlic Soup.

Can I rent/buy the gear in Nepal and return/sell it later?

Discovery World Trekking can introduce you to dozens of shops selling knock-off gear around Thamel in Kathmandu. You can also barter or rent the needed gear/equipment at these places. Thamel is full of shops ready to sell you new gear/equipment you need at moderate prices. 

What is the luggage weight limit for a porter?

Discovery World Trekking will provide one porter for two trekkers to carry 18 kgs of luggage (maximum 9 kg for each trekker). Porters not only carry your equipment but also lift your spirit to reach new heights, and your love, affection, and generosity inspire them to work hard to take you to your destination.

How to get to Everest Base Camp?

Most treks to Everest Base Camp start with a 40-minute flight to Lukla from Kathmandu (or sometimes Ramechhap). From Lukla, you will be trekking to Everest Base Camp. It takes around a week to reach the Everest basecamp. The Everest trail from Lukla leads to Phakding, Namche, Tangboche, Pheriche, Lobuche, Gorak Shep, and finally to Everest Base camp.

How many Base Camps are there on Everest?

There are only two base camps on Everest on opposite sides of Everest. The southern Base Camp is in Nepal, while the northern Base Camp lies in Tibet. You require a permit from Chinese authorities to use the northern Everest Base Camp. 

How tough is the Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp is a challenging trek. It is equally rewarding. You do not need technical skills for the EBC trek, but you must be determined and physically fit. 

What insurance do we need for Everest Base Camp Trek?

The Everest Base Camp Trek takes you up to 5,555m at Kalapathhar. The trek region is very remote and has extremely limited health facilities. As the trek region lies at a high altitude, you must be ready to face high-altitude risks. Hence, you will need travel insurance with helicopter rescue at altitudes up to 5,555m in addition to health care coverage. 

Will there be any power source for charging devices available throughout the trek?

The trek regions have electricity, and you can charge your devices at the lodges/hotels you will be staying during the trek. However, you might need to pay to use this service.

How long has Discovery World Trekking been in operation?

Discovery World Trekking was registered with the Nepal government in 2011, which means our company has been providing trek and tour services for over a decade.

What is the food like during the Everest Base Camp Trek?

During the Everest Base Camp Trek,  you can get traditional, Asian, and Western Cuisine. As the trek region elevates, food choices get limited, and food gets expensive too. Though you will find plenty of non-veg options, we do not recommend them due to hygiene concerns. You can see the available food options above.
