Traveller Useful Information

EBC Luxury Lodge Trek Cost 

The cost of an Everest Base Camp (EBC) Luxury Lodge Trek is more expensive than a standard EBC trek due to the luxury hotel services provided. Besides luxury accommodation, the cost varies depending on factors such as the duration of the trek, the number of trekkers, the quality of the guide, the level of luxury provided, the season, and the services included in the package. For a 12-14 days EBC Luxury Lodge Trek, the total cost can range from $2,850 to $4,000 per person. Typically, this cost includes permits, accommodation, meals, guides, porters, transportation, and other logistical support.

  • Meals: $360-$500
  • Guide and Porter: $550-$700
  • Flights: $390-$420
  • Miscellaneous: $300-$500

Best time for EBC Luxury Lodge Trek

The best time for the Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge Trek is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons. These periods offer the most favorable weather conditions and clear views of the mountains.

Spring (March to early June)

Spring is a popular time to trek to Everest Base Camp on a Luxury Lodge Trek. The weather is mild, and the rhododendrons are in full bloom, adding vibrant colors to the trails. The temperatures are warmer, the days are longer, and clear skies make for a wonderful and memorable trekking experience. However, it can be crowded along the route with other trekkers.

Autumn (Late September to early December)

Autumn is another excellent time to trek to Everest Base Camp on a Luxury Lodge Trek. The season starts after the monsoon, so the rains have cleared the air, offering stunning views of the mountains. The weather is stable, providing great visibility for breathtaking mountain views. Additionally, this time coincides with various Nepalese festivals, allowing you to observe the local nature and culture. However, this is also a peak trekking season, so trails and lodges can be busy during this time.

Winter (December to February):

The winter season is not recommended for the Everest Base Camp Luxury Trek due to colder temperatures and occasional snowfall, especially at higher elevations. While daytime temperatures at lower altitudes can still be comfortable, nights are much colder. However, some trekkers choose to trek in winter, resulting in fewer people on the trails and offering a quieter and more serene experience. Luxury lodges are less crowded, providing a more intimate atmosphere. Despite the snowfall at higher altitudes, winter days often bring clear skies, offering stunning views of the snow-capped peaks. Nevertheless, winter trekking requires proper gear and preparation, as snow and ice on the trails can make hiking more challenging.

Summer (June to August):

Summer is not a good time for the Everest Base Camp Trek, as it is the off-peak season for trekking in the Everest region. During summer, you'll encounter fewer tourists on the trails and in the lodges. However, summer brings warmer temperatures and monsoon rains to the region. Days can be hot and humid, especially at lower elevations, while higher altitudes may still experience cooler temperatures. If you decide to trek in summer, be prepared for challenges due to rain, which can make the trails muddy and slippery. There is also a risk of leeches at lower elevations. Views of the mountains may be obscured by clouds and mist.

Therefore, the best time for Everest Base Camp Luxury Lodge trekking in the Everest region depends on your vacation time and requirements.

Difficult Level is Luxury Everest base camp trek

The difficulty level of the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is considered moderate to challenging, even with luxury accommodations, due to its high-altitude terrains, weather conditions, and physical demands. The entire Everest Base Camp trek covers a distance of approximately 130 kilometers (80 miles) round trip, with an average walking duration of 5-8 hours per day. The trail comprises rocky paths, steep inclines, and occasional river crossings, necessitating good balance and sturdy footwear. The trek involves significant elevation changes, requiring strong legs and endurance.

Ascending to higher altitudes presents the challenge of high altitude sickness, with EBC situated at 5,364 meters (17,598 feet) above sea level. The thinner air makes breathing more difficult and increases the risk of altitude sickness. Additionally, the mountain weather can change rapidly, with the possibility of snow, rain, and strong winds. Consequently, temperatures can drop significantly, especially at higher altitudes and during the night.

Proper preparation is crucial for managing the difficulty of the Everest Base Camp Luxury trek, as physical fitness is paramount, along with determination. A good level of physical fitness is required, and it's recommended to engage in cardiovascular training, strength training, and hiking practice. Additionally, the trek is demanding and requires mental resilience and determination. Follow the itinerary carefully to allow for proper acclimatization, and listen to your body, informing your guide if you experience any symptoms of altitude sickness. It's important to stay hydrated and maintain a balanced diet to keep your energy levels up. Investing in good-quality gear, including trekking boots, clothing layers, and a comfortable backpack, is also advisable. 

Reach to Lukla by Airplane

Lukla is the small town that serves as the starting point for the EBC trek with a helicopter return. It has a small airstrip where many planes land from Kathmandu and Ramechhap during the busy trekking season. The airstrip is named Tenzing-Hillary Airport, Lukla. Regular flights to Lukla are operated by Tara Air, Summit Air, and Sita Air from both Kathmandu and Ramechhap. There is no road connection from Kathmandu to Lukla, so trekkers must either fly there or trek from Phaplu or Jiri.

Regarding luggage weight: there is a luggage weight limit on small planes. You need to ensure that your total luggage weight, including your hand-carry bag, does not exceed 15 kg; otherwise, you will have to pay extra. We suggest keeping your luggage weight under 15 kg. Sometimes, if the plane is overloaded, you may have to fly without your baggage, which will arrive on the next flight.

Please be aware that taking a smaller aircraft for the flight to Lukla involves navigating the narrow Himalayan area, crossing many high hills. Occasionally, bad and critical weather might delay your journey to and from Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu or Ramechhap-Lukla-Ramechhap. The weather in the Himalayan and hilly regions can change very quickly, causing flight delays. This can extend your journey, so you should plan for a few extra days before and after the trekking days in your itinerary. However, we will try to create the best possible itinerary, considering potential flight delays and cancellations.

If you do not have extra time before and after the trekking itinerary, you may need to take a helicopter to fly near Lukla, but good visibility is required for helicopter flights.

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.

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 to 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.
