Mt. Everest is the pride of Nepal. An Everest base camp trek also represents Nepal and its adventure. Hiking to Everest base camp (EBC) is a prime adventure. Nepal is a South Asian Country. It is the 48th largest Country by Populations as well as 93rd by Area. People in Nepal are Nepalese people. They also knew as Nepali. Nepali is also one caste in Nepal. The national language of Nepal is also Nepali. The capital city is Kathmandu. Kathmandu is famous as Kathmandu valley. Kathmandu is surrounded by hills from all sides.

All the travelers to Nepal land in Kathmandu international airport. This is only the international airport with international flights. There are some international airport constructions going on. That airport will allow people to land directly to other cities which will be easy for travelers to visit Nepal. It is a country with many trekking and hiking opportunities. Everest base camp Hike is well recognized among the trekking and hiking world.

Nepal is known as well as famous for Himalaya. There are many mountains and regions for trekking as well as traveling in Nepal. Among many regions, the Everest region and Annapurna regions are a famous place to Travel. Annapurna region is famous for its base camp trek, Annapurna circuit trek as well as Annapurna I climbing. It is the same in the Everest region. Everest is more famous in climbing as well as trekking than Annapurna. The Highest Mountain Everest makes these regions more popular and famous among visitors.

Everest Region of beautiful country Nepal

The area that Solukhambu districts covered is known as the Everest Region. We can do many activities like a trek, climbing as well as expeditions in this Everest region. All this is possible due to the popularity of Mount Everest. Everest is the highest mountain recorded in the world. The local name of Everest is Sagarmatha. The Tibetan people call Everest as Chomolungma. The current official elevation of Everest is 8848 meters. This region is also popular as the Khumbu region.

The name Everest came from the name of a person. He is Gorge Everest. He is the person to find out Everest as the highest point in the world. The first person to reach that highest point is Edmund Hillary from New Zealand as well as Nepali Sherpa climber Tenzing Norgay. The first time they reached the top is 29 May 1953. This is the first successful climb after many unsuccessful attempts.

Climbers have to spend many days for climbing Everest. They need to set many camps to spend their nights while they are on climbing. Everest base camp is one of the temporary camps of Everest expeditions. Long-time ago the camps need to make from Kathmandu all the way to base camp. Now, there are different types of hotels and lodges available until Gorakshep. They are the permanent camps for climbers. No more hotels and Guesthouse after Gorakshep. We need to make temporary camps afterward. The base of Everest where tents are set is Everest Base Camp.

Base Camp of world Highest Mountain Everest

Everest base camp height is 5364 meters above the sea. The technical part of climbing starts from base camp. Base camp is set above Khumbu glacier. The base camp changes from time to time after the glaciers move. Everest base camp is near the Khumbu icefall. We can see two base camps on the Everest trekking map. The old Everest base camp and Everest base camp are on the same level. Expeditions of Everest are hard, expensive as well as time taking. It is not affordable for many people. Some people don’t want to risk if they are able to afford climbing. For seeing the Everest people start travel just till the base camp. The base camp is visited as Everest base camp trekking. Now, Trek to Everest base camp is very popular as well as visits by many in numbers.

Essential Information

​The idea of a typical day on the Everest base camp trek

Everest base camp trek will reward with a very unique experience of trekking through beautiful scenery and taking wonderful pictures through exploring the local settlements. During the Everest journey, we are accompanied by experienced, friendly, and well-qualified sherpa guide sharing different historical facts as well as info about the treks and places. The strong Sherpa porters also join our trek with helping us carry big luggage whereas we all carry our regular day bag pack with necessary items.

The trekking day starts with an early morning hot tea. We will have breakfast after we do packing. We will start walking around 7 Am or 8 Am, depending on the nature of day walk and duration. We will stop for lunch after walking around 3 to 4 hours. After spending around an hour for lunch and rest, we will walk around 2 to 3 hours until reach the final destinations. We will have snacks and tea on reaching the final destinations. We have some time to walk around before dinner. After dinner, we stay some time in the dining hall and then bedtime. The day might change on day 10 and day 11. On day 10 we will have more walk because we doing base camp that day. We will spend half an hour on base camp. On Day 11 we will wake up early and hike Kalapather and breakfast is after Kalapather.

​Money Exchange in Nepal

Nepali Rupees or Rupaiya is a local currency in Nepal. Besides local Nepali rupees only Indian rupees are acceptable in local markets. In tourist markets, the USD, Japenese yen, Pound sterling, Euro, Thai baht, Australian dollar, Singapore dollar are easily acceptable. In the money exchange, it is possible to exchange other money which is unpopular in Nepali markets. We can also exchange most of the foreign currencies through local banks. Some of the hotels in Thamel also exchange a smaller amount of money. People need to give a passport while exchanging the money. Now the Nepal government has banned the import, export, and the use of 500 and 1000 Indian rupee note in all Nepal. While In Nepal be careful about those notes, do not carry them because it illegal.

There is a security advantage of traveler’s cheque all over bigger nations buy Nepal prefer cash exchange facility to avoids hassles like a lengthy process and high rate of commissions at banks. People can withdraw cash in local currency only from the ATMs. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 rupees for a 500 rupees processing fee while using foreign cards. The money exchange facility at the bank service charge is about 4%. There are few banks and money ATMs on the trail but do whatever you have to do in Kathmandu.

​Responsibility on the environment

It is very important to have a balance between the environment and human beings. Our company strongly believes that the environment needs to be protecting well. Tourism and trekking activities have chances of bringing negative effects on our environment. We always work to make positive aspects of tourism on the environment. Our company engaged in different plantation programs. We also work together with Kathmandu Environmental education project (KEEP) and engaged in organizing eco-friendly treks and trips.


​Gratuity

Gratuity means the tip. Here on Everest base camp trek all the trekking staffs from Guide, porters, helpers work hard for making the trek successful. Tipping is at the trekker’s discretion. It depends on good service from the team. Tipping is very much accepted and honored way of saying thank you for a wonderful service that is delivered. Most of the people offered tips at the end of the trek but some people prefer giving tips daily on a small amount. Most of the group's tips, staff at a last day celebration party where they invite all the staff and pay for their food and drinks too. The amount of tip is a personal preference that might be more or less and depends on trip duration, quality service, budget, etc. our magic Himalaya treks team provides the excellent work to make your trip a lifetime experience. We like to ensure that, we pay well to our guide and porters and make a wonderful family environment.

Base camp Routes Variations of Everest

There is a number of route variations to reach the EBC. People also take through Gokyo valley and then base camp. Some people do it with three passes of Everest. Some people take the classic routes from Jiri or Salleri. There is also the base camp visit with island peak climbing. All these varieties of routes have the aim of stepping the Everest base camp. These route variations are discussed below:

Gokyo EBC Trekking Route

Everest base camp's most popular variations of the trek are the Gokyo Everest trek. Like the other trekking, these routes also starts on Lukla and reached the Sherpa capital Namche Bazaar. From there the routes go to the North-west side passing the town of Dola and Machharmo to reach the Gokyo valley. This Gokyo valley is also the home of Gokyo valley trek. Ascending the Gokyo RI in the north for Everest Himalayan range views and Gokyo lakes are the attractions of this valley. We will cross Ngozumba glaciers as well as Chola pass to rejoin the classic routes of Everest base camp at Laubecha. These routes add 4 days for the Everest base camp trek. These routes will be more silent and less visited than Everest base camp classic routes.

Everest Three High Pass Trek Route

The Everest three high pass treks are the harder trek in comparison to the Everest base camp classic route. The trek is harder and challenging because it involves crossing three high and difficult passes which are not included in the Everest BC trek. This route also starts on Lukla and passes Namche Bazaar, Tengboche and the Dingboche. From Dingboche, it will enter the Imja valley area from where we do Kongma La pass to reached Laubecha for rejoining the classic routes of Everest. Then we will do Ebc and Kalapather and back to Laubecha to go towards the Chola pass and Ngozumba glaciers to reach the Gokyo valley.

From there we also do Renjo La pass to reach Namchabazar for rejoining the classic routes. It takes around 20 days which is also 4 days more than classic routes. We can make this trek bigger by adding some rest day and other side trips too. People choose this trek instead of Everest base camp trekking because of the possibility of visiting Everest in detail.

Island Peak Climbing via Base Camp Route

Island peak climbing is the opportunity to reach 6,000 meters elevations from sea level. The Island peak is one of the most attractive mountains on Imja valley that provide the view of mountains as well as valleys and villages. The island peak climbing via Everest base camp starts on Lukla after the stunning flight to Lukla. The trek routes are the same as the classic routes to Everest until Thukla then it goes towards Dingboche village. From Dingboche villages, it goes to Chukkung and then islands peak base camp.

The routes go from base camp to high camp and then top. After the climbing is done the routes will reach to Orsho to rejoin the classic routes that follow the trail to Lukla and then fly to Kathmandu. This route is the opportunity to be on base camp with an island peak top. Many people do this trek instead of Everest base camp trekking.

Everest Trekking from Jiri Route

Everest trek from Jiri is the alternative way for Lukla flights to avoid the risk of flights. The Jiri variations trek routes start with the 8 hours bus ride to Jiri. Jiri is also called Switzerland of Nepal. It reaches around 9 days to join the Everest classic routes in Chheplung village. The Jiri route is 21 days trip in Nepal. This Jiri route is the same way that Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary did while going for their expeditions to Everest. The Everest base camp trek from Jiri also helps trekkers to Acclimatize well. Now, people started to drive Sallari where they start trek to Everest base camp. It will take 3 to 4 days to rejoin the classic routes of Everest base camp. Both Salleri and Everest base camp trek via Jiri is also the best routes to base camp instead of Everest base camp trekking.

Answer: No, It is not possible to do the Everest base camp trekking as soon as the lockdown over. The first thing is the lockdown is not fixed how long it gonna remains in Nepal.

So, right now it is very difficult to let you know when we can start operating the Everest treks. As soon as the lockdown and international flight restrictions over we will start taking bookings as well as operate the base camp hiking journey.

Answer: The beginning of March to the ending of May and the beginning of September to mid-December is the best time for doing the Everest base camp trek. We also need to think about the rain in the monsoon season and we need to be well prepared for possible rain. December the temperature reaches below zero degrees so we need to be preparing for that too. The days are beautiful and we can still see a few trekkers. We have to keep body worm especially in nights and early mornings. We also advise and take to the bust guest house in December because if more trekkers they make a fire in the dining from yak shed. If you are alone in the guest house there is less possibility of fire.
