Everest Base Camp Trek - Lukla Flight Information

The flight of Lukla will be from Ramechhap/Manthali instead of Kathmandu Because of the huge air traffic in Kathmandu Airport mainly during the peak trekking seasons (March to May, October, and November). We have to drive around 5 hours to reach Manthali from Kathmandu. So we must leave Kathmandu and drive to Manthali around 1:00 a.m. on the scheduled departure date to catch a flight from Ramechhap Manthali.

Everest Base Camp Trek - A Complete Guide

To accomplish Everest Base Camp trekking you must know about those things mentioned below.

Mount Everest was first recognized as the world's highest mountain in the world in 1856. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay Sherpa became the first to reach the Everest summit on the date of 29, May 1953. Since then, Everest Base Camp has become the dream for climbers attempting to defeat the highest peak on Earth.

The Starting Point of the Everest Base Camp Hiking

Our EBC trek starts from Kathmandu with a scenic flight of around 35 minutes to Lukla. Lukla (2,840m / 9315ft) is the starting point of this awe-inspiring journey to EBC.

Meals During the EBC Trek

The Everest Base Camp Trek is a high-altitude trek that demands a lot of energy. At higher altitudes, the food choice will be limited. Our trekking package includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Will will provide you with enough nutritious food during the trek.

Food will be served as per the hotels/lodges/ teahouse menu. Mostly the menu includes Nepali and Western cuisine. We suggest you try Nepalese food Daal Bhat Tarkari (vegetables).

Water and Electricity During The Everest Base Camp Trek

You will find tea houses on your way from where you can buy mineral water bottles but you are highly suggested to carry a water bottle and buy boiled water. We suggest you not drink tap or rivers water, it might be unhygienic but if you put purifying drops or pills then you can drink the water from the tap.

As Everest Base Camp Trek takes you to the high altitude area, electricity is available in lower altitude villages and less reliable with frequent outages in higher altitudes. Few teahouses and lodges rely on solar power but due to weather conditions, it can be limited. 

Communication During The Everest Base Camp Trekking

In recent years, communication during the Everest region trek has been improved but is still limited. Both Ncell and NTC provide limited coverage in the region but Ncell has better reception in certain areas. As you gain altitude the network coverage becomes less reliable. You can also rent or purchase a satellite phone which may cost expensive but it offers more reliable communication in remote areas. If you are trekking with a guided group, your guide may get a satellite phone for emergency communication.

 Most of the tea houses and lodges in the Everest region have WiFi. The WiFi can get slow and unreliable at higher altitudes. They also have local landline phones that you can use for free.

The tip amount is a personal choice that depends less or more on your perception of service quality, budget, length of trip, and appreciation of their service.

The Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek

The ideal times to hike to Everest Base Camp are thought to be in the spring and late autumn. As these seasons of the year are considerably better than other months, trekking during these months is particularly advantageous in terms of weather, temperature, and rainfall. While Everest expeditions usually have a window of a week or two every year at best, trekking to the Base Camp is much more convenient than with any other place in contrast to the mountain-climbing expeditions with the view of the highest point in the world one-upping every other trek available.

  • The best months to go to the Everest Base Camp Hike are September to December and March to May. The temperature is pleasant throughout this time, and on sunny days, visibility is good as well. The peak mountaineering season, which lasts until late April or May, is when you might run into a lot of climbers.
  • Trekking during the icy months of December to February can be difficult. With rare clear views and quieter terrain, it can be enjoyable nevertheless.
  •  The trail is snow-covered during January. Therefore, it is crucial to take care of oneself during these months, dress warmly, and get ready for the cold climate there. This time, the trail is empty, and you might
    come across only a few hikers in the area.
  • During January and February, there can be extreme snowfall and very low temperatures.
  • The months of March, April, and early May are thought to be ideal for trekking to Everest Base Camp. Rhododendrons in bloom, rich vegetation in the lower areas, and the alluring beauty of nature are truly magnificent. This time of year offers better opportunities to discover the best mountain panoramas since the sky is clear, the climate warms up, and the sky is clearer.
  • The monsoon season starts in the last few days of June, July, and August. Trekking during these months can be challenging due to the frequent rainfall and unpredictability of the weather. Trekking is best avoided during these months.
  • Autumnal months like September, October, and November offer the greatest terrain for trekking to Everest Base Camp Trek and making the journey enjoyable. The Fall is the most beautiful and ideal season to do Everest Base Camp since the days are dry and the sky is clear.
  • The route will be quiet starting in late December as people stay away from outdoor activities during the winter. Late December to February are cooler months with temperatures that start to fall below zero. Therefore, it is recommended to stay away from hiking during these months.

Moreover, the most preferable seasons are considered to be the Spring and Autumn season when you will be able to witness the best of the Everest region and your trek will be a memorable one.

Reviews

I had the privilege of meeting Sujan in 2013 along the Annapurna circuit. When you meet someone incredible, it's impossible to forget them. Despite just meeting him randomly along the trail, he made a very positive impression on my wife and me, who think fondly of our conversations and interactions. He has a wealth of wisdom and experience, not just in the mountains but in interacting with people all over. He's got an unquenchable heart for people and his country, which he shares well with anyone in his company. When we do go back, he will be one of those people we must meet again. It's not a surprise that he has started a reputed guiding organization. It's about time! I would highly recommend Sujan and would even provide a back guarantee for anyone who does not have a stellar experience with him.
