The trip to Nepal was a great experience.  I organized the tour (10 days) with Santosh Gauli . Very good flexibility on his part to change the program to suit our needs (both of time and things to see). Santosh welcomed us at the airport and we have always followed the best. I was really happy for his organization of all the programme for us, Santosh Gauli is the best guide ever and he is really helpfull, caring and polite with everyone. Santosh Gauli, in addition to being very knowledgeable about the mountains is very well prepared on the most culture of Nepal, in fact, thanks to him we could learn more about the culture and customs of the people of Nepal. Advice to those who want to organize trip to Nepal to book with this guy Santosh because we really enjoyed with his hospitality and caring. Good luck !!!!!!!

If you are planning your Holiday to Nepal, you are highly recommended to make your trip in between Sep to Dec if not March to May is good though.

Can a Trek to Everest Base Camp?

To Complete Everest base camp trekking first of all you have to be positive and need to do some work out as it is really important. Before you go to trek to EBC if you are not so fit you can make morning exercise, balance diet, and take care about fitness than you can do it easily. If you are already fit than you just follow the general itinerary as your agency or guide provided than you can do it. The Geographical features of Everest region is high but the trail to go to EBC is just gradual ascend so if you are between 15 years to 60 years and if you have general exercise than you can make Everest base camp easily as per your itinerary.

What kind of Accommodation I will get in the Everest Region?

The accommodations in the Everest region will be quite good because you can have warm dining hall to eat your food and to talk with your friends and the room will be wind proof plus perfect ply insulations, you can use indoor Restroom near your room.

The excess of Accommodation during high season (Sep- Dec 15) will not be enough some time because there are about 500 trekkers fly in to Lukla for Everest trekking so you should reserve your accommodation if you want to be sure that you will have room each night during the trek. You can tell your guide about reservation while you are in Everest region because they always have each settlement’s hotel number and they know the person too, so just one day earlier or two days earlier they accept reservation in Everest region so you need to tell to your Guide or Porter. As per the itinerary each settlement you can get tea house/lodges so it will be warm and safety during Everest trekking.

What short of path we follow from Lukla to Everest Base Camp?

Everest trekking region sounds very difficult but it is not true 100% as a guide of Everest region since 14 years I would say the path from Lukla will be wide and natural through many traditional Sherpa house and new lodges , tea house, Mani wall , Suspension bridges and Rivers. The path to walk each day will be about 4 to 5 hours from morning to evening you can walk slowly but it will be just gradual path Except Kalapather, Namche hill and Tangbuche hill. Otherwise it will be easy ascend along the river.

What kind of food can I have during Everest Base Camp Trekking?

While you are in Kathmandu city obviously you can have all kind of food on your choice but during trek Everest base camp trekking you can get, Pasta, Momo (Dumpling food), Rice, Pancake, Apple pie, Nepali foods(Dhal Bhat), All kind of Noodles, soups, coffee, tea, deserts so no from the menu, But in general every tea house have menu and they serve you western foods, Nepali foods, continental and Indian food mainly in the lower part below Dingbuche and further up from there there are not many choices like lower loop but still they serve you so many different foods.

When you order your dinner in Everest Region at high season (Sep to Nov) you should give your order before 5 pm than give also them your time you will eat your dinner than they will serve you on time because there are fixed lodges and so many people in the lodge this is why they have this kind of system.

Is it Compulsory to have Guide in Nepal ?

Actually to have a Guide with you is not a Compulsory till now as we go though the rules of Nepal Tourism board but there are so many Biodiversity , Culture, Traditions and Localities so your Trip will be meaningful if you have a Guide and especially for the route where you going to walk you need Guide and at risky area also you need Guide beside that to gain about fact of Nepal, Rural life, Culture, traditions and Himalaya you need Guide otherwise you just walk and it is kind of your Exercise , so hiring a Guide or Porter is not only your safety and information source there will be your contribution for local economy and helping Local People.

Is Nepal Safe for Trek and Tour ?

Yes, Nepal is a safe to travel since 2006 especially because Nepal Government and revels sighed for peace agreement than they are in Parliaments together, Which means there is no obstacles either in City or Mountains. Even after Earthquake it was common questions from all different visitors but now everything is normal and recovered since last year so if you are dreaming to explore the high range Himalaya Please don’t hesitate just book your trip to Nepal.

Is there any Mobile signal or Wifi service during the trekking the Mountain ?

Yes you can get phone signal and service most of the popular trekking such as Everest, Annapurna and Langtang. Since few years you can also use internet service (wifi) in some lodges but need to pay.

What are the essential things to carry during Everest Trek?

Our Porter will carry your big Bags and your extra weights too what you have to carry is just your personal day Bag with Bottle of Water, fleece Jacket, warm Hat, Gloves, Sun cream, some Medicine, wind proof Pant and wind proof Jacket. Generally you have to reduce your extra weight of your bags that you can leave in Kathmandu hotel as you get one porter for two trekkers you are allow to have 12 kg each of it means porters nee to carry 24 kg in total.

What do I need to do if I get Mountain Sickness?

You suppose to have your insurance in general when you are travelling and especially in the case of high area trekking. We will have some first aid medicine with us and give you some tip too what is best to do when you have sickness but some time might not work so in that case we have to go down and still if you are same and nothing improved we arrange emergency chopper service through your insurance than you will transfer to the hospital where ever closer from the mountain than after an hour you will be fine. We have all well train guide and he knows what should be done when our clients get sick so he will give you useful information and help you you follow him.

What kind of Medicine can I take with me?

Generally our guide will take mountain related medicine but beside that you can take with you too because when we have big group you might not be close by from your guide so each trekkers need to carry their first aid medicine with them. Diomax is a common medicine for altitude sickness.

But if you are two person and looking for average package trip cost 999 USD per person.

Hiring a Guide and Porter Lukla to EBC ?

Hiring a guide and porter from Lukla is not difficult especially in the case of porter you can hire easily there are many porters waiting for their job just outside of airport in Lukla and there is not really fixed price for Porter they generally get 20 to 25 USD a Day and they carry max 30 kg.

To hire a Professional guide you can get from agency or search freelance guide webpage you can find easily than you can get him in Kathmandu he will manage your all documentation and permit of Everest trek. If you hire a guide from Lukla you might not get Professional Guide because most of them they used to live in Kathmandu and just few guides live there and they are pre booked so it is better to have your guide from Kathmandu through the authorized agency. A day wise salary for guide cost 35 USD which includes his salary, food, insurance, and Accommodation.
