During high trekking season, you may have to share a room with a same-sex trekker from another group.
Nepal has a wide variety of food and it is easy to cater to your needs. If you are a vegetarian/vegan, gluten or lactose-free, we are able to work around that if you let us know ahead of time. During your time in the hotel in Kathmandu, your breakfast is included. Lunch and dinner must be covered on your own. On the trek, breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided.

our Short Everest Base Camp treks lead us high into the Himalayas, it is necessary to let our bodies sufficiently get used to the altitude. The level of fitness necessary for our treks varies depending on the trek. This trek requires very good and long experience in the high altitude. On average, expect to walk an average of 6-7 hours per day while on the trial. Generally, the treks can’t be done with a beginner level of fitness. More important than fitness or experience is one’s personal determination and positive attitude toward finishing and enjoying the trek.
We strongly recommend having travel insurance before going on a trek. We do our best to take care of you, but something can happen that is out of our control. In case of a medical emergency, leading to a helicopter evacuation, it is best to have insurance. You are unable to obtain medical insurance in Nepal and must do so in your home country. Be sure that your insurance covers accidents abroad and high in the mountains.
Best Time to Travel
The peak seasons for traveling in Nepal are during the Spring (March to May) and the Autumn (September to November). These times provide the best scenery and clearest skies, but of course, they are a little more crowded than the off-season. It is possible to trek during the Winter (December to February), but you will face cold temperatures. It is also possible to trek during the monsoon season (June to August), though the views will likely be covered by clouds and there is a high chance of rainfall.
Flights to and from Lukla can be delayed due to weather conditions and delays may last up to several days. In the case that you have a tight schedule and the flights out of Lukla are delayed, it is possible to take a helicopter flight back to Kathmandu for an additional cost. Again, we recommend added a couple of extra days to your arrival/departure dates to prevent any problems.
