Everest Base Camp Trek in Nepal FAQs
  • Rising Adventure follows the Porters’ right terms and conditions. So, a porter can carry up to a 20 kg backpack.

  • Of course, single accommodation is possible in the Everest region. You can get a single room easily, especially in the lower elevation of the Everest trek. And it may be possible in the higher elevation as well if it is not a peak season.

    However, I strongly recommend you not to sleep alone in the higher altitude places of the Everest region. Because it is not safer. But if you still want, we can manage it.

  • The trekking to EBC does not require any age boundaries. It means, there is no age restriction. Only physically and mentally fit travelers can go to the base camp of Mt. Everest.

    It does not matter whether you are young or old. You must have the desire to complete the trek and be able to walk. Then, we will arrange everything for you for completing the entire EBC trekking.

    We also offer the Everest base camp Helicopter tour. It is preferable for those travelers who are unable to trek to the base of Mt. Everest but want to see its views once in a lifetime. Similarly, if you have a short vacation, you can also join this Everest base camp Helicopter tour with landing at Kalapatthar.

  • It is a good question to be conscious of before heading on the trek. It is a moderate trekking destination. So, it can be said that trekking to the base of Mt. Everest is safe when compared to Mt. Everest climbing.

    Of course, every year Sherpas and climbers die due to high altitude and bad weather while summiting Mt. Everest. But it is not a climbing activity, it is a trekking to the base camp of the world’s highest mountain.

    However, the common cause of death in Everest trekking is altitude-related problems. Therefore, we strongly focus on proper acclimatization, trek preparation, and the correct trekking equipment.

  • It is well known that altitude sickness is rather unpredictable. However, we believe on prevention is better than cure. So, we must be careful while preparing for the trek to Everest base camp.

    Mental and physical determination is an important factor to reach the foothills of Mt. Everest. You must know about the coming challenges during the trek and be ready to face and fight against those obstacles.

    Daily walking habits would be beneficial for trekking to the Everest base camp. Similarly, it would be supportive if you have enough days for acclimatization to complete the trek.

    While sum up, health and fitness are mandatory parts of joining the EBC trek.

  • Yes, there is the availability of Wi-Fi at Everest base camp throughout the entire trekking route. It is reachable sufficiently in the lower elevation while it may not be accessed properly in the higher altitudes areas like in Gorakshep. So, it would be better to buy a Nepal SIM card and buy data for using the internet. That may cost cheaper and the internet speed would be better too.

  • Rising Adventure gets in touch with the guide and its client every day. If some serious things happen, our guide will try to handle it because s/he is the first-aid trainer and always carry the medical kit with them.

    Similarly, our crew members are many. So, one of our members will handle the trekker and take him/her down and take care of him/her if s/he cannot go with the group. And if it is needed, we can charter the Helicopter and rescue you, but your travel insurance must cover the rescue charge.

  • It is a moderate trekking trail. So, you do not need to have previous trekking experience. But having fitness physically and mentally is required. However, the daily normal walking activity may help go to Everest Base Camp Trek.

  • The Everest Base Camp Trek is neither difficult nor an easy trail. Though it’s a long day trekking trail, you need to walk almost 5-6 hours a day. People who are used to normal walking and jogging as well as hiking; they might find this trek easy.

  • The highest altitude of the Everest Base Camp trek is 5500m at Kalapatthar whereas the lowest altitude is 2600m at Phakding. It is one of the trekking trails over the greatest elevation in the world.

  • Acute Mountain Sickness is called AMS in short form. It’s a kind of altitude sickness. During the Everest Base Camp Trek, there are some chances of getting sick if you are not fit enough. However, we have designed our itinerary to be sensitive to this sickness. The acclimatization days are enough to fight with AMS. But you need to drink plenty of water as well. If some illness happens, you need to tell your guide, who helps with first aid at first and takes you down to another lower elevation area. If it is serious, our guide informs us, and then we send the helicopter from Kathmandu and rescue you as fast as it is possible and take you to the hospital.

    To be clear, your travel insurance must cover the expenses for the helicopter rescue. Otherwise, you need to be responsible for yourself.

  • Generally, it costs almost USD 1357 per person for a full package for 1-16 days of Everest Base Camp trekking. However, it depends on the group size and the trekking days you want to spend. The big size can get more discount whereas the small size can get the less discount.

    Apart from it, we optimize the two sorts of trekking i.e. the full board trek package and the service trek. The former includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the permit and entrance fees of the trekking area. On the other hand, the latter does not include the very things. It means you need to pay for everything yourself except the guide and porter's salary. However, it depends on a person-to-person habit of eating and budget.

    For more details, you can go through the cost including and excluding the EBC trek.

  • It depends on you. If you buy the full package, you can eat 3 times a day such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner during your trekking. But for the drinks and other things like mobile charging, hot water bathing, etc in the higher elevation; you need to pay yourself. For this package, you need to be prepared with almost USD per day.

    Besides, if you buy the guide and porter only, you need to pay yourself for everything like breakfast, lunch, and dinner costs, and the lodge's rent. For this EBC trek service package, you might be prepared with almost USD 35 per day.

    Amazing Trip

    Nicholas, United StatesTrip Date: February 07, 2023

    From the first day of my landing in Nepal, the hospitality that Rising adventure offers me was mind-
    blowing. I was also amazed by the hotel they provided for me. Not only that their guide, porter, and
    staff were always there when I needed them.

    Amazing trip at a good price Thank you.
