EBC is Nepal’s best trekking trip
Everest base camp is the most preferred trekking destination for people visiting Nepal. You can experience natural beauty and cultural beauty together. The trek to Everest base camp starts from Kathmandu. We will take a terrific flight from Kathmandu to Lukla airport. From there, you will begin your real trekking.
During the trek to EBC, you will meet many people and talk to them about their culture. This trek also includes more adventures way. There are many small and big mountains on the route, and you can also trek to these mountains.
We are gathering with the people and participating in the adventures ahead with our team. This trek will dive you into the wilds of the Himalayas. We will pass the prayers flag on the suspension bride. You will have to climb up the sharp viewpoints in the middle of the mountains.
When is the best time of the year to go on the trek to Everest base camp?
Autumn is the most popular time of the year for doing all adventurous. The second season for these activities is during the spring season. The Spring season in Nepal falls from February to May. This is the perfect time to trek to EBC. The weather during this season is best, with a comfortable temperature.
The daylight and clear sky will help you to enjoy your trek. We are walking with blooming rhododendrons and wildflowers throughout the route. For the people who want to see the Himalayas in their best condition, then the spring season is for those people.
Another best time for trekking is in Autumn. Trek to the Everest base camp is between September and November. This time is the post-monsoon period, so there might be occasional rainfall. But apart from that the surroundings and the views of the mountains are still the best now. After the rain, the grassland and the mountains look very refreshing.
EBC Low Season Trekking
Summer and Monsoon fall at the same time in Nepal. So, the number of people trekking to EBC during summer is meager due to monsoon rainfall. If you are a peace lover deficient, this might be the best time for you as the crowd during this time is scarce.
Another season in Nepal for the EBC trek is the Winter season. As winter is the coldest time of the year, people do not prefer the EBC trek during winter. But, it is when you can enjoy the Himalayas in their authentic condition. The views of the Himalayas wearing the white snow attire are amazing. This time is best for the loner who wants to avoid the crowd.

What food do you get along the way to EBC Trek? Can I be a Vegetarian? Can I get Gluten-free food?
You can eat vegetarian meals during your EBC trek. The meat is not good on a high-altitude tour like EBC. As you ascend higher from Namche Bazaar, killing aminals is not possible. So all the meat items come from down with poor refrigeration. So it is not good hygiene, and we don’t recommend eating. You can use the local vegetarian food, which is fresh and tasty in tea houses.
The Nepali food Dal Bhat gives you enough carbohydrates and protein content in your body. They supply different soups with enough protein to your body. The guest house will also serve seasonal vegetables. They provide other essential nutrients required for your body.

Try different curries and fried rice on your EBC trek.
You must eat the right food in the right amount. While doing the EBC trek, you must avoid stiff drinks. They increase your heartbeat, which also may result in a heart attack. You should eat more energy-giving light food. Dal Bhat and Tarkari are very famous in the trekking region.

But, the Monsoon season encounters heavy rainfall. The winter season records the coldest temperature. The winter weather carries high winds, freezing temperatures, and heavy snowfalls.
Walking in the lap of the world’s tallest mountain is not a joke. EBC trek is a challenging and daunting task for some people.
But, looking at history, people of all ages, sizes, and shapes have been able to do this task. With the proper planning and the right gear, this trek is accomplishable.
EBC trek cost depends on your trek packages. Everest base camp Heli tours cost much more than the EBC trek.
The total cost for an EBC trek is US$ 1700 per person. This is the updated cost for a group trek of the greatest of 16 people.
15 – 16 days trek cost =(USD$1,900)
For visitors of Indian nationality = INR 100000- 120000 (per person).
If you want your EBC trek worth remembering, choose the best season. The best season to trek makes your journey remarkable. You should be conscious of the trekking season.
In Nepal, the best time to trek in the Everest region is March to May and mid-September to Early December. The weather now is pretty straightforward, and the mountains are visible.
You should bring the proper clothing for your EBC Trek. Trekking boots and socks, medical kits, toiletries, electronics, snacks/eateries. And other miscellaneous items for your trek.
Be careful; bringing the right gear is one vital task for your trek. Bring clothes according to the season you are traveling.
The trail of the Everest base camp trek is usually off-beaten, random, with lots of stone and uneasy ladders and, in most cases, uneven roads. So you should bring the best comfortable shoes for the trek.
Hiking Boots, Trekking Shoes / Sandals, Hiking Socks, and Warm Thermal Socks are mandatory for your trek.
Everest Base Camp is a massive challenge for beginner travelers. The main problem that trekkers face in this trek is the Altitude sickness problem.
Dehydration and falling cause weakness due to overexertion. There are other possible risks you will experience during your trek.
EBC trek is safe and doable for almost everyone. But, people with heart and lung disease who cannot adapt to low oxygen areas should not go for this trek.
Not only this, but children under the age of 12 and elderly people above the age of 50 should not go for this trek. They should consult the experts about going on this trek.
EBC Trek is safe and doable for almost everyone. But I strongly suggest people with heart and lung disease who cannot adapt to low oxygen areas should not go for this trek.
Not only this, but children under the age of 12 and elderly people above the age of 50 should not go for this trek. They should consult the experts about going on this trek.
You know that traveling in high-altitude places is always risky. So, it would help to have full rescue insurance for the EBC trek. You should ask your travel agent where you can get a travel insurance policy.
Full rescue insurance covers emergency medical evacuation, baggage loss, or trip cancellations. This insurance covers all the risks associated with your travel during the trek. It will cost USD 200 for 16 have trip days of travel insurance. It would help if you asked.
There is no forceful obligation to tip the exact amount to the guide/porter. But, the reasonable recommendation for tipping your guide will be 10 % of your trip cost.
For the porter, you can list about 5 to 7% of your total cost. But remember that this tip is from the whole group of travelers. Not each amount.
The obvious answer to this question is always yes. Trekking in the Everest region would make you realize what heaven looks like. Your 14-day EBC trek will offer you a magical view.
The greatest adventurous, serene surroundings, sparkling mountains, and many more.
Altitude sickness is a measure problem in the Himalayan region. So, consuming the right nutritious food is a must. It would help to cope with the Altitude sickness problem.
Thus, you should eat food that is rich in potassium. The best medicine food is Garlic soup. Drinks lots of water, 3-4 liters a day.
Besides potassium-rich food, food containing complex carbohydrates should be taken during your trek. This will help to stabilize your blood sugar and balance energy.
Thus, having sweets and chocolate are always good ideas to balance energy.
EBC trek lies at an altitude of 5500 m. The highest point you will travel to for this trek is Kala Patthar, which lies at 5550. You will gain 500-600 m altitude daily by traveling 6-7 hours daily. Kala Patthar is the vantage point of this trek.
From here, you will observe the closest view of majestic mountains. Thus, having an appropriate exercise routine is a suggestion for you.

Best EBC trek
We loved our Himalayan Adventure. Our guide Basu was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and looked after us.
We were able to trust him and understand why he was critical. He also has a great sense of humor, and had quite a few laughs together. His English was also excellent, and we had no trouble communicating.
Our porter Bikram was also delicious, polite, and hard-working. He looked after me when Basu had to look after my sick husband and did an excellent job. His English was also good.
Thanks for a beautiful holiday.
Best EBC trek EVER
We did the hike to EBC Trek, and it was all perfect. The company’s organization, the hotel’s location, and the rise’s schedule.
Our guide Suresh was great, super responsible, and competent.
Thanks to Mr. Puru and his team for the great trip.
EBC Trek - Solo Female trekker
Where to start… What a fantastic place! You cannot fail to have your breath taken away on this EBC trek. Our experience was even better, given that before we even got on our flight out.
We had the assurance that everything was being taken care of for us. All our internal flights, permits, hotels, trekking guide, tours, everything! We can’t compliment the team at ‘Above The Himalayas’ enough.
As a solo female traveler, I needed to find a safe, reputable trekking company in Nepal. Above the Himalayas, Trekking Ltd. has exceeded my expectations! Gokki, my trekking guide, was fun, reliable, and creative.
During our EBC trek to Gokyo Ri, I crossed Cho La Pass to Kala Pathar. We went down to Chukung, where I met my climbing guide and porters, who were excellent as well. Our cook prepared fantastic food in the Island Peak base camp, so all I had to do was – go to the summit!
Excellent service; everything was well organized, fun, and professional!
I recommend DO NOT WASTE TIME SEARCHING AROUND FOR A LOCAL TREKKING COMPANY. BUT RATHER SPEND MORE TIME ABOVE THE HIMALAYAS!!!
The BEST trekking company for EBC Trek even in a worst-case scenario
I have no hesitation in recommending this company to all my friends. Mr. Puru Timalsena was excellent from the very beginning. , Replying to my emails on time. He was able to organize the exact EBC trek we wanted.
When we wanted, I was thrilled to work around my travel times. We were at ease when they met us Airport and take to the hotel.
Our pickup waited for hours until our flight, which was late, arrived. It’s comforting to know they will wait for you and not leave if your flight is late!
While on the trek, one of our group experienced acute mountain sickness. Puru arranges a helicopter evacuation down to Kathmandu.
A scary experience! We had the travel insurance to cover such an event. Puru and our Guide (who knew exactly what to do) organized everything soy.
Puru arranged a helicopter, hospital, Dorctos, and everything needed. Puru dealt with our insurance company (he has experience in this department). He took care of EVERYTHING. It was 100% stress-free in a worst-case scenario. On top of this, the trek itself was enjoyable.
Thanks to a great team of porters and our Guide, who took excellent care of us and ensured we had a great time! (Oh, and Puru gives you the best price, including Kathmandu tours. He offers a traditional Nepalese dinner and entertainment at the end of the trek! Great value for money!).
If you want peace of mind that you are getting an honest and reliable company. For booking your next adventure in Nepal, choose Above the Himalayas.
They go above and beyond your usual trekking deal. If I ever go back or visit neighboring Bhutan, there is no doubt I will call Puru to organize it!
EBC Trek in May
Went here in May for our EBC trek. The first time we were taking a tour like this. The group at Above the HimalayaPhurba trekking was excellent. They meet us at the airport, hotel accommodations, preparations, and supplies—all top-notch.
The guide we had was Phurba. He is an excellent, knowledgeable guy. Earnest about his job and your safety. They provide much of the equipment, including sleeping bags.
I hire, down jackets, climbing boots, rain poncho. Nothing was cheap; all first-class stuff. Throughout the trek, the guides and porters become a little family.
We went through the tough days, spending all the time together; it bonds everyone. Found some new friends, both with fellow climbers and guides.
The reviews for these guys are all positive, and there is a reason for that. They take their time and do things right, and the feeling cannot improve.
You book Khumbu trekking with these guys if you are deciding. If I go back, would be no other group; I would spend it with them only. Great job, guys.
EBc Trek - Trip of a lifetime
I thought I had uploaded my review at the end of my EBC trek. But on reminiscing six months later, I noticed it was missing. I have decided to challenge myself with the Everest trekking. I did the usual online searches studying the various reviews.
Based on that, I chose Above The Himalaya Trekking and dealt with Puru by email. With a degree of trepidation, I met the taxi at Kathmandu airport. As discussed, from then on, my fears were gone as everything went as planned.
Puru’s hotel is an oasis within Kathmandu with lovely rooms (heaven after the trek). I chose to trek alone with a porter & guide (Kedar). He was fabulous and ensured that I was well looked after & paced the trek to my capability.
The trek was ‘out of this world’ with perfect weather most of the time. Such a sense of achievement at the end of As I had a couple of days left before my return flight.
Puru organized a 3-day safari trip to Chitwan National Park. It is worth it if you have time, including elephant treks. In summary – thanks, Puru, for organizing the whole trip!

Outstanding EBC Trek
If you want to go EBC Trek in Nepal, look no further than Above the Himalayas. Puru (an ex-guide himself) and his team made the experience fabulous. He ran like clockwork from the moment we arrived to drop him off.
We had our guide and porter between the two of us. We paid pretty much the same as other larger groups who had to carry their stuff. They include our meals. Uincludenlike other groups we met, there were no restrictions on what we could order.
When we returned to Lukla, the weather had closed for several days. Mr. Puru arranged for a helicopter to get us out, which was an extra ($200). It was much cheaper than if we had tried to set it ourselves. All in all, 5*

EBC Trek in August
Puru was very helpful in organizing the trek through email. EBC Trek was a brilliant experience! Our guide and sherpa made everything possible.
They kindly posted our certificates and T-shirts to us after we had flown home. Would recommend!

Awesome EBC Trek with guide Sitaram
After googling various Nepal-based trekking agencies for our EBC trek, I’m so glad we went with Puru and Above the Himalayas. From my first emails inquiring about the package.
All went great to the end of our trip to Kathmandu. We were delighted with the professionalism and level of love our guide, Sitaram- what a lovely guy. He was professional, friendly, looked after us the whole EBC trek, and pushed us when needed.
It is excellent to learn about Nepal from him. With this company, everything is taken care of. All we had to do was get ourselves walking every day! As for the EBC trek itself-absolutely phenomenal, don’t hesitate to do it!!.
Ensure you drink 4 liters of water daily, eat garlic soup, and take altitude pills. I would recommend Above the Himalayas without a doubt!!
Unbelievable EBC Trek in more ways than one
There is no more accurate measure of a man or an organization than to see how they manage in a crisis.
The excursion to EBC Trek was item #1 on my Bucket List. No words can pay homage to the spectacular beauty of the Himalayan mountains. It is the quality of service that Puru T. and his staff provided.
On the way back from the EBC trek, I was stricken in the middle of the night. I got little sick and felt acute dehydration. The net effect was that I could not carry on and was in a remote tea house in Pangboche.
Our guide contacted Puru in Kathmandu. Within hours, Peru had arranged an emergency helicopter evacuation. I came by ambulance from the Kathmandu airport to the hospital, where I met Puru.
He expedited all the paperwork and came by many times to check in on me. Even upon my release, he retrieved my luggage and took me back to the airport.
I cannot say enough about how much care and hospitality these guides provide. I can’t thank enough Puru and his organization.
It was a National Holiday in Nepal during this, and yet Peru was able to pull it all together. Thank you, Peru and Above The Himalayas
His quick response time we were ranged from a few minutes to a few hours. He answered all our questions. We immediately knew this was a company committed to its clients.

Thanks Puru and team for the memorable EBC trek
My husband and I did the EBC Trek in September with Above the Himalayan Trekking. We were immediately impressed with the response time of Mr. Puru Thimalsena, the MD of the company.
His quick response time is from a few minutes to a few hours. He answered all our questions patiently. We immediately knew this was a company committed to its clients.
We were also delighted with the professionalism of our guide – Mr. Basu Duwadi & our porter – Chandru. Overall we are so happy to have decided to trek with ATHT.
It was a memorable and excellent trek, thanks to Mr. Puru and his team. We would do my next EBC trek with the same company.

EBC Trek a life time experience
Great EBC trek experience; it was the first EBC trek/hike I’d ever been on. The leading tour guide Ramhari was exceptional. The assistant guides were brilliant (amount and Romesh, spelling incorrect ).
The accommodation was what you could expect for a hike in the Himalayas. Guides had it tough with a massive group with a wide range of abilities. Recommend trying and getting it on Ramhari’s tour if you can.

EBC trek in November
Puru as the organizer for my trip to Nepal was very efficient. Apart from arranging the EBC trek, he helped me organize a trip to Chitwan National Park. He helps me to get my bus tickets to Pokhara. He also helped me sort out the reconfirmation of my plane tickets.
All Trekking Permits (TIMS) involve a bureaucratic process to get on time. When you are on holiday, you do not want to hassle with it. With his help smoothing out all these, I enjoyed my stay in the majestic country of Nepal. He provides me with an excellent guide.
It was a fascinating EBC Trek and Kala Pattar. My guide, Narendra with me, made the trip even more memorable. He was a good companion on the trek.
He made sure I was always warm and comfortable. (it is super cold for an Asian up there) and he always knew the comfortable lodges to choose from.
He even advised me on my food, depending on the freshness of the ingredients. That’s why I had a good pizza in Gorakshep and a delicious dhal bhat in Namche.
I did not have to worry about the nitty-gritty details of the EBC trek because it was all arranged. I cut short my trek for two days, and there were no problems with flight tickets with Nahendra and the agency’s help.
It is a primary concern for single-woman travelers looking for trekking guides. But I will recommend Nahendra.

Honest, knowledgeable service even during a pandemic
One always worries whether a trekking company is being honest or not. One thinks about how much their markup is. But Puru Timalsena and Above the Himalayas were straightforward. They are simple, told me where not to spend extra though it would have benefitted him, and did a great follow-up.
I have used Above the Himalayas for two trips. The first in 2019 to visit Upper Mustang for the Tiji festival. The second in November 2020 for the EBC Trek /Khumbu region. While living in Nepal, I tried to do some of the groundwork for myself.
But with someone as knowledgeable as Puru at the help, that was a mistake.
He even helped us with a hotel I tried to arrange alone. He helped us gather reliable information. He helped to get my wife back to Nepal during the pandemic after she had to leave with only a regular tourist visa.
In both cases, he helped without any more commission, which you wouldn’t find in a country like Nepal. His arrangements and advice were always spot on. I recommend Above the Himalayas.”
Best guide for EBC Trek.
Above the Himalayas organized a grand tour from the beginning to the end. Having a lot of questions before the trip, Puru provided all the answers.
They provide the group with a very experienced tour guide. Mr. Purna was a pleasant, easy-going, solid, and reliable guide. His knowledge of the surrounding mountains and Nepal was vast. Omit EBC Trek was a fantastic trip, and I recommend Puru and this team.
Fantastic trek to Everest base camp highly recommended
The EBC trek was fantastic! The Jiri to Lukla section gloves you on authentic sights In rural Nepal. Dipak, my guide, handed over everything and was happy to answer any questions.
He was very knowledgeable about all aspects of trekking in the Everest region. He is an excellent company to All, and all a very enriching and fulfilling experience.
I will use Above the Himalayas when I return to Nepal.
Trip of a life time thanks to my guide and porters
Above The Himalayas, Puru is a true professional, gentleman, and businessman. Dhurba is among them—the most courteous, attentive, respectful, and knowledgeable guide.
Mr Basu is an eager-to-learn, patient, caring, and humble porter. With all the qualities of the young guide, make this team the best. Nepal has to offer in the Himalayan world not only EBC Trek but adventure travel.
After my trip to the EBC trek, I craved more and liked that. , I was diving off a bridge over 160 meters in the thick of a beautiful jungle. The class and dedication everyone provided are excellent.
I am bringing an experience of safety and pure enjoyment. My heart goes out to these guys for making an extraordinary moment in my life even more profound. Thank you!
