How to reach Everest Region

Located in the northeastern part of Nepal and Protected by Sagarmatha national park, the Everest region can be reached in different ways direct flights to Lukla from Kathmandu, Jiri, or Phaphlu are among the most common ways due to the unavailability of direct road links. Taking the bus to Jiri takes a 4-5 days trek and 2-3 days for Phaplu to enter the region.  

About Lukla Flight 

Lukla is the small town and starting point of all trekking to the Everest region in Nepal. There is no direct road link to Lukla from Kathmandu due to which trekkers to Lukla either have to fly to the Tensing Hillary or Lukla airport or trek from Phaplu or Jiri. Many airlines operate regular flights from Kathmandu. 

The weight limit of the luggage bag is 12 kg and an extra cost is to be charged for the extra weight at the airport. We suggest you make less weight than 15 kg because Sometimes overload in a plane can cause you to replace the luggage on the next flight which could take more time. 

Please be responsive in taking a smaller aircraft for the flight to the highlands.  Sometimes, the weather could be bad and crucial resulting in delaying the flights to and from Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu. Himalayan and Hilly Region weather can be changeable. But, we will try to make the best itinerary days possible. In case of flight delay and cancellation, you’ll need an extra few days before and after the trekking days from the itinerary. Because our trekking staff are experienced and professional in trekking as well as problem-solving so there are fewer chances of miss handling the situation.

Food and Accommodation in Everest Base Camp Trek 

Due to the popularity of the Everest base camp trek, the accommodations in the Everest region are well managed with the availability of lots of accommodations and restaurants along the trekking trail. Therefore there will be less or no difficulty in finding the best accommodations in the region. The majority of the teahouses have the best quality service. Normally, lodges have private rooms (2 beds in one room) for customers with sharing an indoor bathroom but if you need a luxury lodge, they have luxury facilities and some places have to limit lodges.  Every different place has different quality of the lodges so, you can choose the best according to your budget.

Every lodge has a menu with nearly identical food items. We strongly suggest the traditional Nepali cuisine "Dal-Bhat" (boiled rice, vegetable, and lentil soup), however, you are free to choose from the menu. Most hotels grow fresh vegetables in their gardens and provide them to their guests. The cooks are essentially skilled, yet the meal may have a taste that differs from that of western cuisine. Because meat is scarce in the mountains, we advise you to try vegetarian recipes.

You can buy all types of drinks in every lodge but the prices go high as you go higher. You can drink normal water using purification tablets. We should avoid alcoholic drinks when we go higher.

Best Season for Everest Base Camp Trek

Autumn trekking season (September to December) and spring trekking season (March to May) are the best trekking seasons for the Everest region. The weather is perfectly sunny and warm with wonderful mountainous views, clean air, and no rain and snow compared with another trekking season. 

If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time with nature and culture, you can do this trip during the winter (January and February).  The temperature during winter could be a little chilly for some trekkers but visibility is good. But there is a considerable risk to doing the Everest region trek in the winter season due to the possibility of a lot of snow.  In the summer season (June to August) it rains heavily but it is the best time for nature lovers. Therefore, the best season for trekking in the Everest region trek depends on what kind of trekker you are. 

Everest Region Trekking Difficulty 

“The most difficult roads lead to the most beautiful destinations.”

The difficulty level of the Everest Region is moderate and challenging. There is no road access and it is difficult to reach the beautiful area. The walking distances are 5 to 8 hours a day and there are many obstacles during the Everest region Trekking. Also, there are various trekking routes ranging from easy to challenging. Normally, Everest region trekking starts from Lukla (2820 m) and the highest altitude is Kalapathar (5545 m).

This destination is a bit challenging for those who do not have previous trekking experience and it entails strong physical and mental health and fitness. Everest Base Camp Trek, Gokyo Valley Trek, and Everest View Trekking routes are Moderate Level but Everest Three High Passes Trek, Climbing to Gokyo Ri, Kalathar and Nagarkhang are difficult to level treks. 

Booking for accommodations is very important for peak season as it is very crowdy during the season and it is necessary to prepare warm clothes. The monsoon is not an easy trek option here because the roads get slippery due to heavy rain. 

Overall, Tea-House, resting place, acclimatization day, slow walk, and short easy steps will be helping to you with your difficulty trekking to the Everest region 

Communication in the Everest Region

There is good mobile network service around the Everest base camp trekking area but not around Gokyo Valley and Chukkung Valley.  The internet service is available in the whole of the Everest Region but teahouses and lodges provide the internet with some extra charges. In case of not have a Nepali sim card, our Nepali guide will help you contact your family and update the head office about the trek. 

Because traveling is a part of human life and tourism is as old as human civilization, we have been working to make travel more enjoyable. 


When traveling to higher elevations in the high Himalayan region, high altitude sickness is a regular problem. Although it develops fairly quickly, the symptoms can be avoided. If you have prior high-altitude trekking experience, it might be preferable, but if not, you should take precautions to avoid high-altitude sickness if you plan to walk over three thousand meters. In order to avoid altitude sickness while trekking in Nepal, you should walk carefully, drink enough water, abstain from alcohol, ascend higher, and sleep at low elevation. You should also spend two nights for every 500 meters over the elevation of 3500 meters. All of our trekking routes are adaptable and include days for acclimatization. Your health and safety come first so that you may complete the trek without incident. In case things worsen, we give you some essential medications to help with an emergency rescue. 

As a result, you must advise your Guide or Leader of your health status each day. Based on his reaction, he will decide whether or not to let you continue on your trip.

Tipping Information:

During your tour, trekking, and other activities in Nepal, the guide, porter, driver, and all other employees who work in the tourism industry expect tips. Tipping is how customers evaluate service providers, and service providers accept tips at the end of a journey. Travelers often tip 10% of their billable amount, but you can give more or less depending on the quality of the service. 

Therefore, it is crucial that the High Pass Adventure working team takes good care of you at all times while you are visiting Nepal, is inspired by exceptional service, and provides inspirational once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

 Trip Extension:

After finishing the walk, if you have extra time, you can engage in other activities or go on another quick trek in Nepal. Chitwan National Park and Bardiya National Park for jungle safari excursions are only two of our many short travel packages and adventure activities. You can go sightseeing in Pokhara, go trekking in Nagarkot or Dhampus, or go rafting for the day on the Trisuli River. 

Paragliding, kayaking, ultra light flight, bungee jumping, and mountain biking are examples of adventure sports.

Getting There: Nepal 

Between China's Tibet Autonomous Region and India, Nepal is a landlocked Himalayan nation. It has eight of the top ten mountains in the world, including Mount Everest. There are numerous points from China and India where one can enter Nepal by land. Tourist visas for Nepal are available on arrival at all Indian and Chinese borders if you are traveling there by land. There are numerous foreign airlines providing non stop connecting flights to Nepal if you're arriving by air. Nepal Airlines, Turkish Air, Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar Air, Jet Airways, Air India, Biman Bangladesh, Lufthansa, Oman Air, Travel Dubai, Air Arabia, and Air China are a few of the well-known airlines that fly to Nepal. From China or India, one can also go overland. Please check your flight and get in touch with us before arriving in Nepal. At the airport in Nepal, you can easily obtain a on arrival visa.

Visa and passport information

Except for Indian passport holders, all foreign visitors to Nepal need a visa; however, you must have a passport with a six-month validity date in order to apply for a tourist visa. At the Tribhuvan International Airport and the Chinese-Indian border in Tibet, visas are available on arrival. To apply for a visa to enter Nepal, you must have a color photograph in PP size. Please click this link for more details about Visa Information. 

Money exchange rate and prices

If you're seeking for the best foreign exchange rates and locations in Nepal, you may easily exchange the majority of your foreign currency at a local bank or authorized money exchange facility in a well-known tourist destination. The Nepal Rastra Bank controls all exchange rates (Center Bank of Nepal). You can exchange small amounts of money at the hotel if you want to. Because our banks will not take dirty or old notes, kindly bring clean and fresh notes.

In order to avoid the time-consuming processes associated with cards and traveler's checks, Nepalese people typically prefer cash in hotels, restaurants, shopping malls, and other locations. You can use an ATM to get cash (in Nepali Rupees) if you have a credit or debit card. In the main tourist city, there are a number of ATM counters with 24-hour service. If you use a card, the maximum withdrawal amount is between 30,000 and 35,000 rupees at once, plus a processing fee of 500 rupees. 

You must convert your money in Kathmandu or Pokhara before the hike because the majority of trekking routes do not offer a facility for international currency exchange. Additionally, inquire about the amount of money required for a Himalayan trek from your trekking operator or guide.

Safety and security

When traveling in Nepal, safety and security are crucial issues to consider both on the way in and out. We are here for you at all times, and we promise to provide the greatest service to all of our cherished clients. Our guides have extensive training in the field of trekking and broad understanding of first aid items. Because it rises more than 4000 m above sea level, it is essential for hiking in Nepal. Because health is crucial, if a trekker becomes ill from the high altitude, our knowledgeable guide discusses the necessary medications and decides to continue the trek while organizing the emergency rescue.

You must be cautious when hiking trails pass one other because they are not wide enough to do so. During the busiest trekking season, there are lots of porters, yaks, mules, and Jokpe along the trail. You must stay on the safe side if you encounter them on a bridge or in a confined space because otherwise they may force you over the edge.

Safe drinking water

For a healthy body while traveling and staying hydrated, clean water is essential. It will be the most effective method of completing the Himalayan journey. If not, getting sick and having diarrhea is simple. Almost everywhere during the Nepalese tea house trip, but not during the camping trek, sells bottled water. Unfortunately, bottled water is very pricey. 

Please bring good water bottles (for boiling water) and water purification tablets or water filter bottles since plastic bottles are detrimental for the environment. Reusable water bottles are a good idea because they help keep the mountain clean. If you are concerned about finding a typical water tap to fill up your bottles in the trekking region of Nepal, they are very simple to locate. It can be found in rivers, streams, and lodges.

Travel insurance and insurance policy

Nepal hiking tours: The difficulty levels of the Himalayas range from easy to tough. As a result of the Himalayan climate changing, there is a risk of high altitude and potential mishap. 

Trekking in the Nepalese Himalayas demands practical trekking abilities at high altitudes (above 4,000 meters), so travel insurance is essential. If an accident occurs during a trip and requires medical attention or evacuation, the cost of returning to a city and receiving treatment may be significant. Therefore, you must ensure that your insurance covers the price of an air ambulance, medical care, and any risks associated with travel, such as delayed flights and lost, stolen, damaged, or missing baggage. Your complete itinerary while visiting Nepal should be covered by your insurance policy. Make sure your insurance policy covers hikes higher than 5,500 meters. If not, you will be responsible for all unforeseen costs associated with your trek through Nepal. 

All trekkers must send a copy of their certificate from their comprehensive travel insurance policy to High Pass Adventure as part of the booking process for trekking and climbing in Nepal.

High altitude sickness information

Mountain sickness is another name for high altitude sickness. You must be aware of high altitude sickness symptoms since they arise rapidly if you hike or ascend to a higher elevation. Here are some details if you're curious as to why it occurs. The air pressure is the main cause of altitude sickness. Your body needs time to adapt to the shift in air pressure when you travel to higher elevations since the air pressure decreases and there is less oxygen present. According to doctors, If you are at sea level, it begins at 8,000 feet (2400 meters).

1) Types 

There are three types of altitude sickness:

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): it is very common and symptoms feel like a tiredness, dizzy, headache, thirsty, muscle aches, nausea 

High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): it is effect in the lungs, which can be very dangerous and hard to do life threatening

High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): it is effective in the brain and most difficult to treat and you need to go to hospital attention the right way. 

2) Cause 

Following are the causes of high altitude sickness:

Generally living near sea level and travel to a high elevation 

Had the sickness before

Climbing quickly

Not being acclimatized to the altitude

Drinking alcohol when you ascend 

Medical problems of heart, nervous or lungs 

3) Symptoms

These symptoms will appear depending on your speed to climb and how hard you push. Symptoms range from normal to serious. They can affect the nervous system, lungs, muscles, and heart.

Here are symptoms of High Altitude Sickness:

Difficulty sleeping




Loss of appetite

Nausea or vomiting

Rapid Pulse (Heart Rate)

Short breath with action

Blue color of skin or gray soft skin 

Chest tightness or blocking


Dry cough or coughing with blood

Cannot walk in a straight line 

4) Prevention 

Important keys to preventing of High Altitude Sickness are:

Climb the mountain gradually. 

Stop every 2,000 feet (600 meters) of climb above 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) and one or two nights sleep there.

Sleep at a lower altitude when possible.

Make sure that you have the ability to quickly descend if needed.

Learn how to recognize early symptoms of mountain sickness.

If you plan on climbing quickly, or climbing to a high altitude, ask your provider about medicines that may help.

If you are at risk for a low red blood cell count (anemia), ask your provider if your planned trip is safe. Also ask if an iron supplement is right for you. Anemia lowers the amount of oxygen in your blood. This makes you more likely to have mountain sickness.

5) While climbing, you should follow these rule:

Drink plenty of water

Climb slowly.

Take it easy

Do not drink alcohol.

Eat regular meals that are high in carbohydrates.

Sleep lower elevation 

Take a medication (diomax) according to doctor

Everest Base Camp Trek with Ganesh


I have did the Everest Base Camp Trek with High Pass Adventure agency and my guide was Ganesh. It was the first time that i get at this altitude and my guide was very careful with me. He listen all your problem if you have it and he can adapt in function of you. We have did the Everest base camp trek in 9 days only because i'm felt good. In plus the guide and the agency are very friendly with you so it's very nice To do the trek in a good atmosphere. If you want to do one trek in Nepal i recommend this agency. I Will never forget this experience it was Perfect.

Great Knowledgeable Guide


In 2014 Purna was our guide to the Everest Base Camp. Purna has great knowledge about the area and we felt very safe during the trekking. He provided excellent support before the trek in Kathmandu, checking if we had everything we needed and also helped us hiring the necessary equipment.
