If you are planning your holiday in Nepal, you are highly recommended to make your trip 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 workout as it is really important. Before you go trekking to EBC if you are not so fit you can make morning exercise, a balanced diet, and take care of fitness then you can do it easily. If you are already fit, then you just follow the general itinerary as your agency or guide provided then you can do it. The Geographical features of the Everest region are 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 then you can make Everest base camp easily as per your itinerary.
What kind of Accommodation will I get in the Everest Region?
The accommodations in the Everest region will be quite good because you can have a warm dining hall to eat your food and to talk with your friends and the room will be windproof 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, sometimes because there are about 500 trekkers fly into Lukla to Everest trekking so you should reserve your accommodation if you want to be sure that you will have a room each night during the trek. You can tell your guide about reservations while you are in the 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 a reservation in the Everest region so you need to tell to your Guide or Porter. As per the itinerary for each settlement, you can get tea-house/lodges so it will be warm and safe during Everest trekking.
What sort of path do we follow from Lukla to Everest Base Camp?
Everest trekking region sounds very difficult, but it is not true 100% as a guide of the Everest region for 14 years I would say the path from Lukla will be wide and natural through many traditional Sherpa houses 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 a gradual path Except for Kalapather, Namche hill, and Tangbuche hill. Otherwise, it will be easy to 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 kinds of food of your choice but during trek Everest base camp trekking you can get, Pasta, Mo: mo (Dumpling food), Rice, Pancake, Apple pie, Nepali foods(Dhal Bhat), All kind of Noodles, Soups, Coffee, Tea, desert 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 are not many choices like a lower loop but still they serve you so many different foods.
When you order your dinner in Everest Region at high season (Sept to Nov) you should give your order before 5 pm then give also them your time you will eat your dinner, then 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.
Does Safe Holiday Adventure operate Kathmandu to Lukla air Tickets and Hotel Reservation?
Yes for sure we organize indoor and Outdoor Flight Tickets, Hotel Reservation at your request, as we are an authorized agent. We have been doing this job for many years we will be glad to operate these programs.

Is it Compulsory to have Guided in Nepal?
Actually to have a Guide with you is not Compulsory till now as we go through the rules of the 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 the 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 the local economy and help Local People.
Is Nepal Safe for Trek and Tour?
Yes, Nepal is safe to travel since 2006 especially because Nepal Government and revels sighed for peace agreements, then they are in Parliaments together, Which means there are no obstacles either in the city or mountains. Even after the Earthquake, it was common questions from all different visitors, but now everything is normal and recovered last year if you are dreaming to explore the high range Himalaya Please don’t hesitate to just book your trip to Nepal.
Is there any Mobile signal or WiFi service during the trekking the Mountain?
Yes, you can get a phone signal and service most of the popular trekking such as Everest, Annapurna, and Langtang. For a few years, you can also use Internet service (WiFi) in some lodges but need to pay.
What are the essential things to carry during the 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 a Bottle of Water, Fleece Jacket, warm Hat, Gloves, Sun cream, some Medicine, Windproof Pant and a Windproof Jacket. Generally, you have to reduce the extra weight of your bags that you can leave in Kathmandu hotel as you get one porter for two trekkers you are allowed to have 12 kg each of means porters need 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 traveling and especially in the case of high area trekking. We will have some first aid medicine with us and give you some tips too what is best to do when you have a 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 then you will transfer to the hospital where ever closer to the mountain than after an hour you will be fine. We have all good 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 besides that, you can take it with you too because when we have a big group you might not be close by from your guide so each trekker needs to carry their first aid medicine with them. Diomax is a common medicine for altitude sickness.
How much does EBC trek Cost?
Everest base camp (EBC) Trekking takes 12 days to go and back from Kathmandu including both-way flight (Ktm/Lukla/Ktm). If you are following a 12-day itinerary, it costs $999 US per person generally, but the price will depend on what kind of accommodation you need in the city, how many Nights, even in the Mountain. But if you are two people and looking for an average package trip costs $999 US 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 the airport in Lukla and there is not really fixed price for Porter they generally get $20 to $25 US a day and they carry max 30 kg.
To hire a professional guide you can get from an agency or search freelance guide web page you can find easier than you can get him in Kathmandu he will manage all documentation and permits of Everest trek. If you hire a guide from Lukla you might not get Professional Guide because most of them, used to live in Kathmandu and just a 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 a guide costs $35 US which includes his salary, food, insurance, and Accommodation.
