Highlights of the Everest Base Camp Trip

Before plunging into the most exciting adventure that lasts 17 days, you have to get to Lukla from Kathmandu. It will take you only 35 minutes to reach the destination. During the flight, you will be able to admire the spectacular Himalayan scenery, including majestic mountains and local monasteries. Once all members of a trekking group are in Lukla, they will set off to Namche Bazaar (a famous village that is also known as the capital of Sherpa) on foot. The next destination will be the Dudh Koshi River and Tengboche. This part of the Nepal Everest Base Camp trekking trip is synonymous with breathtaking views of Kusum Kanguru, Thamserku, Ama Dablam, and Lhotse-Nuptse. Also, the area is famous for being a natural habitat for such animal and bird species as the red panda, snow leopard, musk deer, bharal, black bear, monal, danfe, and kalij pheasant.
Thus, it will take you 7 days to get to the Everest Base Camp. At the end of the trip, you will have 2 days of spare time in Kathmandu, meaning that you will be able to visit Thamel, get familiar with the local history, or do some shopping.

Adventure Cost

There is no fixed price for the Mt Everest Base Camp trek package offered by Satori Adventures. Its cost may vary depending on:

  1. Journey duration. Weather and other conditions may affect how long trekking to the Base Camp lasts. As a rule, it is 12-17 days.
  2. Season. The cost may be higher in the spring and autumn time.
  3. Package. Satori Adventures offers Luxury and Budget packages to all trekking enthusiasts.

The type of trekking is another factor that affects the journey price. When it comes to Everest Base Camp trekking, it’s up to you to choose independent, guide, or all-inclusive type. Keep in mind that your experience while ascending this mountain also depends on people you are with. That is why it is recommended to count on a reputable agency like Satori Adventures.
With all features of the trip in mind, its cost may be from $500 to $10,000. As an option, you can choose the budget package that doesn’t cover food, facilities, and transportation fees when getting from Kathmandu to Lukla.

When Should You Embark on the Everest Base Camp Trekking Tour?

Although this destination is reachable throughout the whole year, spring and autumn are deemed to be the best seasons for climbing. For those who are planning to visit the Khumbu region, it is required to get TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) cards.

Special Aspects of the Trip

It is worth mentioning that Mt Everest Base Camp trek tour doesn’t require sophisticated climbing techniques and considerable experience. In fact, it is a long-distance walk that can be taken by any persistent and physically fit person. With our help along the trail, be sure you will successfully reach the camp. We have already managed to guide people with extra as well as insufficient weight, kids, and the aged so that they can feel all the beauty of the mountain.

You should be ready to take a long walk throughout the Khumbu region. The expedition to the Base Camp means you have to get to the destination from Lukla on foot. Otherwise, you can use helicopter services if you wish.

Everest Base Camp trek is fraught with some difficulties you should be prepared for. After the arrival in Lukla, you will face the challenge of crossing the distance of 65 km (that is 130 km when traveling back). Plus, this area is famous for its uneven terrain and zigzag trails. You will have to cross no less than 5 km a day to stick to the trip schedule.

While getting from Lukla (2,860m) to the camp (5,364m), trekkers are subjected to effects of high altitude. To reach the destination successfully, you will have to move at an unhurried pace according to the acclimatization instructions and other rules set by our team.

There is another potential difficulty you may face during the Mount Everest Base Camp trek trip. You should realize that the region will not provide you with delicious food and first-class facilities. However, the expedition will enable you to enjoy Nepalese hospitality and natural beauty to the fullest.

Preparation Guide

With all trip difficulties in mind, Satori Adventures recommends you to maintain your physical fitness and take exercises regularly before choosing the Everest Base Camp trekking tour. Add cardio and weight-training programs to your routine to train your legs, shoulders, and back. Such activities as swimming and cycling are also of importance to get into shape. Try to walk on foot as often as possible until you can move 5 hours without rest. Besides, you should consume high-protein food to get the most out of its health benefits.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.  Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries).  Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information.  Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submit Trip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time.  We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip. You are always advised to visit our website and related package for further information.
