Trip Info

Accommodations

Accommodation is usually arranged in twin sharing basis in a budget hotel or 3 stars to 5 stars hotel depending upon your budget. Single room is available with an additional charge of around USD 250. In Kathmandu and at the lower elevations of the mountains, the single rooms are easily available. However, in some hotels or lodges at the higher elevation, you have to share a common washroom and toilet amenities. Step On Himalaya will take care of arrangement of the accommodation especially rooms with attached restrooms.  But during peak season, it is little difficult to get the rooms as desired.

Meals

En route there are many teahouses or lodges available that serve different kinds of cuisines including authentic Nepalese food items and some common International dishes of Tibetan, Italian, Indian, Continental, etc.  Step On Himalaya recommends you to prefer vegetarian food items as sometimes the meat available in the mountains are not fresh and not good for health.  Breakfast and dinner are served in the respective tea house or lodge where you will stay overnight.

Physical Condition and Experience Requirements

Mount Everest Base Camp Trek is graded as the moderate trek that is suitable for adventure lovers able to walk at least 6 to 7 hours per day carrying a light rug sack. Walking in the mountains towards higher elevation is a strenuous and demanding, hence, one should be able to adjust according to the variation in the height and the weather. A strong will power and an optimistic attitude are required for the accomplishment of the trekking. Regular exercise and jogging must be done prior to trekking so that you will adapt to the strenuous walks up in the mountains. Experience in the mountains is an advantage but not a necessity. Step On Himalaya will always accompany you in each and every steps.  A pre-medical checkup is recommended prior to the trekking.

Best Time to Trek in Everest Region

The Spring season and the Autumn season are regarded as the best seasons to trek in this Everest Region in order to view the gigantic Himalayan vista underneath the amazing clarity of the blue sky.  Many trekkers opt for trekking in Winter season too but due to cold temperature, it might not be a good time of the year for every trekker.
