  • Sagarmatha national park: Natural World Heritage site declared by UNESCO.

Mt. Everest (8848.86 m) 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 Population as well as 93rd by Area. People in Nepal are Nepalese people. They are also known 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 at Kathmandu International Airport. This is only an international airport with international flights. There are some international airport constructions going on. That airport will allow people to land directly in 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 the Himalayas. There are many mountains and regions for trekking as well as traveling in Nepal. Among many regions, the Everest region and Annapurna regions are famous places to Travel. Annapurna region is famous for its base camp trek, Annapurna circuit trek as well and Annapurna I climbing. Annapurna base camp trek is known as the Annapurna sanctuary trek. It is the same in the Everest region. Everest is more famous for 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 cover 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 and people know this as Sagarmatha base camp.

The Tibetan people call Everest Chomolungma. The current official elevation of Everest is 8848 meters. This region is also as 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 was the highest point in the world. The first person to reach that highest point was Edmund Hillary from New Zealand as well as Nepali Sherpa climber Tenzing Norgay. The first time they reached the top was on 29 May 1953. This is the first successful climb after many unsuccessful attempts.

Climbers have to spend many days climbing Everest. They need to set up many camps to spend their nights while they are climbing. Everest base camp is one of the temporary camps for Everest expeditions. A Long time ago the camps needed to be made from Kathmandu all the way to base camp. Now, there are different types of hotels and lodges available until Gorakshep. They are 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 the world's Highest Mountain Everest

Everest base camp height is 5364 meters above the sea. The technical part of climbing starts from the base camp. The 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 ice fall. 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 and time-consuming. It is not affordable for many people. Some people don’t want to risk if they are able to afford climbing. For seeing Everest people start traveling just to 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 you with a 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 guides sharing different historical facts as well as info about the treks and places. The strong Sherpa porters also join our trek to help 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 the packing. We will start walking around 7 a.m. or 8 a.m., depending on the nature of the day's walk and duration. We will stop for lunch after walking around for 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 upon 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 walks 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 Rupee 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, Japanese yen, Pound sterling, Euro, Thai baht, Australian dollar, and 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 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 money. Now the Nepal government has banned the import, export, and use of 500 and 1000 Indian rupee notes in all of Nepal. In Nepal be careful about those notes, do not carry them because it is illegal.

There is a security advantage of traveler’s cheques all over bigger nations but Nepal prefers a cash exchange facility to avoid 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 protected well. Tourism and trekking activities have a chance of having 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 the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) and are engaged in organizing eco-friendly treks and trips.


Gratuity means the tip. Here on the Everest base camp trek, all the trekking staffs from Guide, porters, and 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 a very much accepted and honored way of saying thank you for the 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 Himalayan treks team provides 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.

​Notice Regarding the suspension of Trekking Permit

The High-level coordination committee for the prevention and control of COVID-19 has decided on 11th March 2020 to take necessary precautionary measures and preparations to prevent and control infection of Covid-19. As a precautionary measure, the Department of Immigration has decided to suspend the issuance of Trekking Permits to the designated restricted areas of Nepal on 30th April 2020 to foreigners who arrived in Nepal on 15th March 2020 and onward. This is to notify the trekking agencies in Nepal involved in Operating Trekking to follow the decision accordingly.

Everest Base camp Trekking Tips

While doing the Everest base camp Trek people face different kinds of problems and obstacles. These kinds of problems arise due to a lack of knowledge and pieces of information. We need to have knowledge of many things such as Nepali cash, and types of equipment you need to have while going.

​Famous Everest base camp trek for All Months

The Everest base camp trek's best time is the autumn and spring season. During both seasons, The weather remains clear and many people prefer to hike during this time. Due to no snowing, the trail remains clear and the trek is not challenging. Both these season is highly recommended for trekkers. Here I am going to tell you more about the Everest base camp trek for all Months.

1. Everest base camp trek in January

January is the beginning of the year. People around the world just finished celebrating the two biggest occasions that are Christmas and New Year. People from different countries around the world travel to Nepal and Everest base camp in January month too. Talking about the view in January, it is wonderful and clear. We also have an experience of walking on snow on most parts of the trail. The average temperature is -2.8 degrees. During the early morning and late nights, the temperature is even going down. The trails are clean and silent. With the best packing list and equipment, January is definitely one of the best months to trek Everest base camp.

2. Everest Base camp trek on February

February is the second month of the year. It is the ending months of the winter season in Nepal and treks starting time in Nepal. Many people are surprised about the Ebc trek in February but it's 100% possible and successful. Many Photographers select these months for doing the trip because due to perfect landscapes for the best pictures. The weather does not remain constant this month. It changes from lower elevations to higher elevations. We will have a clear and best view during the month of February. There are very few people doing this trek. We need to walk on snow while trekking during this time and we will see many water streams get frozen which might be a problem for drinking water to those people who prefer steam local water instead of bottled mineral water.

3. Everest Base Camp trek in March

March is the starting month for all Everest expeditions groups. Those people who are going to climb energy may start their preparation and acclimatization from these months. This is one of the perfect months for a trek because you just say good bye-bye to cold temperatures and the best moderate temperature on your foot. The weather in the daytime remains constant but there is a vast difference in temperature in daylight and nighttime. The variations in temperature depend on different altitudes. During these months the famous Holi festival is celebrated all over Nepal and India. The national flower Rhodendrons also bloom in these months at Everest trails.

4. Everest base camp trek in April

Trekking to the Everest base camp in April months is the best time to experience the Sherpa hospitality. We can smell the Rhodendrons flower along the trail. We can see the rhododendrons flowers on many clours. The weather and view on the treks also make you feel like heaven. On a journey to base camp, you will see many tents and expedition groups.


Answer: On the lower elevations of a trek we can charge on electricity whereas on higher we need to pay the amount because they have solar panels or batteries or generators as a source of energy. On the trail, some guest houses provide free wifi but in higher they charge for the internet and phone calls. All the places do not have phone calls.

Answer: On Everest base camp trek the lodges are well constructed as well as well facilitated in comparison to other trekking areas. Most of the guest's houses have toilets inside the building where you can do toilets and also a bath. There are also few lodges with the attached bathroom with private toilets and showers.

Answer: During the walk, if it is an emergency you must use the toilet. A first thing is to check around if there is any a lodge or teahouse with toilets. If there is no any then you can go behind the stone but make sure you are not doing on rivers or water resources.

Answer: The local guest house does not provide toilet paper on their toilet. They will sell it but the cost is double then what you pay in Kathmandu. It depends on you whether you prefer taking from Kathmandu or buying at high cost. You also have an option of clean from water instead of paper.

Answer: Some of the lodges on lower elevations have a shower in the room. Some lodges have solar shower, some have electrical whereas some have a gas shower. The higher you go the shower is expensive. You can get bucket shower on higher elevations where water mostly freezes on zero levels. We do not advise taking a shower every day but instead use baby wipes to clean your body.

Answer: Some of the teahouses on a trail does laundry services. The tea house on Namche and Dingboche does laundry which will cost you an amount to pay. If you want to do laundry yourself the guest house will provide the place to do. They will also provide the bucket but the soap and detergent powder you need to buy there or use yours.

Answer: Actually, we advise all our trekkers to Everest base camp not to eat meat because they are not well frozen or stored. They most take by carrying people and animals on their back without cover which makes them smelly and dirty. We can provide vegetarian food and if there are any other diets you want let us know what kinds of diest you prefer so that we will provide accordingly.

Answer: Trekkers can choose the meals and hot drinks from the menu at the tea house. Meals are such as omelet, fried rice noodle soup, toast boiled eggs, macaroni, momo, vegetable curries, pizza, etc. The most provide meals are the local dish, Dal Bhat. You can learn this at Kathmandu on Our Nepali food cooking class which is around 4 hours class. Try this if you have time and you can cook Dalbhat back in your country.

Answer: The safe drinking mineral water is carried from Lukla or make on a factory somewhere in villages but has to carry all the way up to different places for sale. If you have a habit of drinking mineral water then you can buy on each guest house which costs around 1$ to 4$. For those people who are ok to drink the stream, water can get a tap on the guest house and the guide will help to fill it. You can also use water purification tablets or drops to make it pure.

Answer: We will definitely able to provide a single private room in the city areas of Nepal. In trek also someplace we will be able to provide the private room without any extra cost but some of the villages have a limited number of lodges and overflow of people. At that time the guest house will not give a private room instead of snedding back to some people without a room. It is petty much silly to ask a private room in those places.
