How To Get To Everest Base Camp?
Trekkers prefer to take the adventurous flight from Kathmandu to Lukla. The scenic mountain flight lands on the narrow airstrip of the Tenzing Hilary airport.
The trekking journey starts from Lukla as you trek gradually and passing by the famous settlements of Namche Bazar, Lobuche, Dingboche, Gorak shep to arrive at the Everest base camp.
One of the essential tips to follow while trekking is to acclimate properly and take proper rests. The return trek is relatively easy as the trail is mostly downhill.
How To Book This Trip?
There are two ways to book this trip: one is to book your trek online, and the other is to book in-person.
Book in person
If you are in Nepal and have not decided on your trek, then you can visit our office premises and book your trip. We can arrange the popular treks in short notice and over a few days.
So, if you have a few extra days in Kathmandu or Pokhara, then you can always visit us to explore more trek options and book the right trek for you. You can talk to your potential guides and veterans who can give detailed information regarding the trek.
Spend a few days visiting trekking agencies and communicating with your potential guide. This gives you a more personal feel, and the communication channels are clear and best done in person.
However, booking online is the right choice for you if you have a tight schedule and want your trip planned in advance. You can search for the treks on our website and confirm the itinerary and finally book your trip after completing all the formalities.
If you book online, all your treks are pre-arranged before you even arrive in Nepal. Everything from hotel pick-ups to hotel transfer and meal and accommodation gets confirmed in advance.
We offer these exciting treks at reasonable price, whether you book online or book in person.
Finding the Best Right Price
The higher price does not mean the best service, and similarly lower price does not imply a lousy service. Thus, you will need to explore all the other aspects along with the cost to get the best services.
Do not get lured by a guide on the street as they might not be adequately trained or worse; leave you in a dangerous situation. The treks in Nepal move at a significant height, and the risk of altitude sickness can turn into a life-threatening situation. Hence, trekkers and budget travelers should not get lured by a lower price tag.

What after Booking?
You can get assured regarding all the facilities provided after you have booked your trek. After your arrival in Nepal, you will get picked up at the airport and transferred to the hotel.
An official meeting with the officials and your professional guide will get organized before the trek. One important thing you must not miss is to get a good travel insurance package in advance before you leave for the trip.
Your guide will lead the way all along the trail and guide you every step of the way. They also help you learn more about the geological and cultural aspects of the trek.
Charging Electronic Device.
The electricity board of Nepal provides 220-240 volts 50 MHZ. Various appliances, as well as different plugs, use this range of power. Some countries offer 110-120 volts/ 60 MHZ of electricity (like the U.S and Canada).
If you use this power in daily life, then you will need a travel plug adapter. Travel plug adapters help to change the plug of the appliance to the socket you need to use. Generally, there are two or three round prongs in use in Nepal. The flat prongs, as found in the United States or other countries are not in use in Nepal.
There are various electronic appliances that you might use during your trek, including the laptop, tablet, camera, hairdryer, electric shaver, curling iron, and others. For these cases, you will require a voltage adapter (electrical converter) as well. These voltage adapters convert 220-240V to 110-120V, that is perfect for your American and European appliances.
A universal adapter and converter kit are necessary if you carry a lot of electronics. These gadgets are available in hardware stores or online retailers. Virtually all laptop computers and some electric razors take universal voltages. Always be sure to check the equipment’s power capability before you purchase the voltage converter and travel plug adapter.
Best Time for Everest Base Camp Trek
