There is a smooth power supply in the Everest region. The lower stretches of the Everest Base Camp Trek are powered by hydroelectricity which is convenient to charge your electric gadgets and appliances. As you ascend higher in the trek, the teahouses use solar electricity which might limit the supply, especially during the evenings. There are no charging sockets available in your room in most of the teahouses during Everest Base Camp Trek except for a few high-end lodges. You can charge your electronic devices in the dining area where an extension cord is provided for a small fee. Make sure to carry a power bank with you so your devices don't run out of Power.

Please take note that, the internet connections in those regions are not reliable and are disrupted most of the time. Cellular networks are available in the Everest Base Camp Trek all the way up to the base camp. Owing to several power outages and other technical reasons, the network is also disrupted.

Everest Base Camp Trek Demanding Grade Treks.

Demanding grade treks are the combination of a strenuous and moderate walk which are normally 6 to 8 hours a day at an altitude up to 5000 meters with side trips to higher elevations. These are classified as well-defined trails, away from habitation. Therefore, one must be very fit for this sort of trip and people suffering from asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease, or complicated medical conditions adversely affected by strenuous exercise should not participate. We describe Everest Base Camp Trek as one of our most demanding treks categories.

How hard is the trek to Everest Base Camp?
The trek to Everest Base Camp is considered Demanding Grade for it traverses through the Khumbu valleys of Everest highlands. The final stop of the trek, Everest Base Camp stands at 5364 meters making it uninhabitable for humans. The elevation provides for a thin air with low oxygen content and pressure making it difficult for trekkers to breathe.

Over 30,000 people make it to Everest Base Camp each year which includes people of all shapes, sizes, ages, and fitness. With a level of preparation and a can-do attitude, Everest Base Camp is moderately difficult. Our team at Visit Himalaya Treks has designed the itinerary for the Everest Base Camp trek such that the trek makes a gradual ascent with proper acclimatization so as to make it comfortable for you.

How long is the hike to Everest Base Camp?
On average, Everest Base Camp which initiates and ends in Lukla is completed in 17 days arriving in Kathmandu Nepal to depart from Kathmandu. It's the most ideal period of time with a proper itinerary to provide trekkers with enough time to acclimatize to higher altitudes. That being said, we can tailor make your itinerary to suit your needs. Our standard 17 days itinerary includes an average of 5-6 hours of trekking every day. On top of the trekking days, you will need a day or two while in Kathmandu for preparation and sorting out your gear and apparel for the trek. If there is a limitation of time, you may opt to finish the Everest Base Camp Trek in time period as short time period by flying back to Lukla from Gorakshep we offer Everest Base Camp Trek Heli Ride Back.

Sherri Hunchak, From - Canada

Everest Base Camp solo trek
I am so thankful to Visit Himalaya Treks and Himal Tamang ( the founder ) for organizing my trip on very short notice. He responded to my emails promptly and made the trip possible. All the staff I met exceeded my expectations and I had the most excellent experience.

I had a friend who had trekked with Himal in the past and I truly valued her opinion and experience so I felt comfortable being a solo female traveller that I would be in good hands. I was so happy to support and book with a local company.

The night I arrived in Kathmandu, I was greeted by Raj, and my guide Ngima and together with the driver I was taken to my clean and comfortable hotel Aryatara Kathmandu Hotel. Getting picked up at the airport was very appreciated and made it easy and allowed me to meet Ngima before our trek began.

The very next morning I was picked up and the adventure began as we were off to the airport and flew to Lukla to begin our 12 day Everest Base Camp Trek. On arrival I met Sonam who would complete our group of three - me, Ngima as guide and Sonam as porter.

I had the most wonderful weather to base camp with clear skies that allowed me many chances to see Mount Everest along the way - but the early morning hours after base camp it started to snow non stop for over 24 hours so our descent was through 1 1/2 feet of snow but it was amazingly beautiful to see the area covered in snow and actually made it easier on my knees and hip to walk through the packed snow and not as many uneven steps. Ngima, Sonam and I enjoyed the winter wonderland and we did not let this change in weather dampen our spirit - however others were impacted by the snow by not getting further up or flights out so we were very lucky with the timing of the snow.

Along the way up and down - the tea houses that were chosen for us to stay at were more than I expected - although they were cold - I was prepared with my very highly rated sleeping bag and the clothing to keep me warm. The food at the tea houses was always very good and I really enjoyed the dal Bhat and momos .

Ngima made sure I was doing good along the way and was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out the mountains and answered any questions I had . Very often Ngima and Sonam played Nepalese music so it was very enjoyable walking and listening as it added to the experience.

I love to take photos ( and so did Ngima) so it was easy to just ask to stop or pause whenever I wanted to take or have a photo taken - and since it was just us 3 - we were able to take the time to do fun photos during the trek.

I have so much respect for the hard work and job that Ngima and Sonam do and am forever thankful to have met these wonderful 2 young men that made my trip so very fulfilling. Ngima continues to take more courses to improve his guiding opportunities and Sonam works hard to support his young family so if you have the chance to request these men- you will be in such great hands .

What I also really appreciated from the company was that the internal flights to and from Lukla were taken care of for me- I was very happy with the tea house accommodations chosen for us , my meals and park fees were all taken care of so I could just enjoy my surroundings and accomplish getting to base camp and checking off another thing on my ‘live list’. Back in Kathmandu I also had asked Himal if it was possible to recommend a tour and he provided his driver Dalsur and a guide Mukta Ram Acharya for an incredible day of sightseeing in Kathmandu.

I also went for dinner that night and thank you to Himal for taking me to Bhojan Bhumi Restaurant for an incredible meal and Nepalese cultural experience. I went to Nepal to trek to Everest Base Camp and left the country with amazing new friends . Ngima surprised me by coming to the hotel to see me off at the airport - he told me that I came as a client but leave as family and I felt the same way.

Thank you to Himal,Raj, Dalsur, Mukta and much gratitude to Ngima and Sonam for an unforgettable journey. This company exceeded my expectations - I highly recommend Visit Himalaya Treks and will book with the company again in the future.Namaste!! December -2019.

The most adventurous and memorable trip ever! 17 Days Everest Base Camp Trek.

We are a couple who completed the Everest base camp trek. Before arriving in Nepal Himal was extremely attentive and detailed in his emailed responses. Upon our arrival, we visited Himal in his office and I'm glad we did so as he spoke about the whole itinerary and advised us on all the gear needed for the trip. We were accompanied the whole way from Kathmandu to Lukla where we met our beautiful guide Ram. The trek went smoothly, and our guide did everything in his ability to make our trip as comfortable and as stress-free as possible. Raj, Himals colleague was very helpful and caring upon our return, we then booked a three day trip to Chitwan national park which I suggest to anyone who has extra time. Any issues that arose were quickly resolved through personal messaging and emailing. We then ended our journey with a Nepalese style meal and traditional dancing from the courtesy of Raj. Overall, our trip would not have run smoothly and comfortably without Himal and Raj. They are a reliable and nurturing company that go above and beyond to ensure their customers are satisfied.
Thank you Himal and Raj, we are so grateful to have found you. November -2019

A life changing adventure!!! Everest Base Camp Trek.

We were incredibly fortunate to trek to Base Camp with Visit Himalaya Treks.
Himal, the owner of Visit Himalaya Treks, was in contact with us through every step of our planning phase; answering even our most benign questions. He gave great advice on Visas, travel insurance and hotels (we wanted to stay two additional days before the trek). Throughout our trek he and our guide kept our friends and family updated on our progress through Facebook posts. He made us feel like family from the moment we stepped into his office.

Our guide, Ngima, was extremely professional and incredibly experienced. He greeted us at the airport and his smile and adventurous, positive nature was immediately infectious! He also shared with us his journey to becoming a guide. Ngima solved every little ‘problem’ that arose on the trek (in the mountains nothing is certain) with skill and grace. We never had to worry about anything-we knew he had everything under control. He made sure we ate enough every day (key to avoiding AMS) and that we had a great time-even teaching us some card games!

If you’re adventurous and have a love for the outdoors Everest Base Camp will be one of the best things you’ll ever do. It takes a bit of planning and is not an easy Sunday stroll so you’ll want to be sure to book with a company that will assist you with the planning before, encourage and motivate you during and become your family after.

We were sad to say goodbye to Himal and Ngima and we’ll definitely go back to tackle another of the incredible Himalayan treks! April-2019.

Alicia & Owen, From - Seattle, Washington

Extremely helpful owner, attentive porter-guides, great trip!

From the moment we contacted Himal, he was incredibly responsive and helpful. His average response time for emails was probably about 5 minutes, and he was extremely patient with the plethora of questions we had as we decided which trek to do and how we wanted to go about doing it! Himal takes care of all of the pre-trek details (permits, flights, guides, timing, where to get gear, etc.) at a very reasonable price, no hidden fees. We decided to hire two porter-guides through his company (guides-in-training who are currently taking guiding and English classes and still carry luggage). Our porter-guides Aila and Nima were absolutely wonderful. They were extraordinarily attentive and cared about every detail of our comfort and safety. When some unexpected weather arose, they proved both knowledgable and flexible in coming up with a new plan. Overall, we were in very good hands and could not have asked for a better experience. Thanks for everything! February-2019.

Everest Base Camp Trek!

Loved how the details were well-taken care of in advance and there was open communication when changes came up. Our preferences were attended to and our guide was very professional... even going above and beyond what was required of him and our porters. It was all just what we needed to make it to our destination and back! Thank you, Visit Himalaya Treks! October 2018.

Most of our itineraries are prepared to give you maximum time to acclimatize and pace-setting on the treks would be done according to your convenience. If you are having regular medication then tell us before the trip started which would be better for us to give you the physical feedback.

Our main concern is your safety. We never compromised on your safety during the Trekking and all our guides are properly trained and well equipped to take care of our client's safety even in remote areas as well.

There would be always back support in case of an emergency situation like severe high-altitude sickness or accident (which is least expected), you will be sent to the nearest hospital, if possible, otherwise rescued by a helicopter and sent you to the hospital as soon as possible. Since you are entirely liable for all the expenses incurred for the use of such emergency services, please make sure that your travel insurance covers both- medical and emergency evacuation costs.

It is not a problem at all because in a mountain most of the tea houses/lodges serve vegetarian food as well and our guide will take care at the time of cooking and on a camping trek, our cook and staffs will care all about the food section.

Most of the lodges in the mountains are basic like a guest house or tea house style. In a few major settlements Lodges are upgraded, where are the possibilities we provide you with the best accommodation! Also, it depends upon the service packages. 

Lately, most of the teahouses have electricity supply even with solar panels. So, charging your gadgets is not a problem at all. But charging your battery you should have to pay an additional fee (US$ 1 to 3 approx. per hour.), in order to get your gadgets to be charged.

Now a day’s most of the major village has a cell phone network connection. However, in a remote area where cell phone does not work, and even if there is not any other communication access then we send satellite phone along with our guide so you can easily be in touch with your family.

Yes, either you can store at the same hotel as you stayed or we can store your goods with us safely in our office free of cost.

The weight limit is 15 kg for the Lukla flight, including both your duffel pack (10kg and a daypack (5kg. If you exceed the weight limit, you will have to pay $2 - 5 for each extra kilo in the air terminal. We, therefore, suggest you pack as light a bag as possible.

This is a difficult thing to gauge. We have seen everything from USD 25 to USD 900 per person for guides and porters. Tipping is not required, but a small gesture of thanks to your guides and local porters. The level of the tip should reflect the level of satisfaction from and personal involvement with your guide. However, we recommend you to spend a minimum of 10% of your total trip cost for tipping the entire local staff.
