Itinerary

Important Note for Everest Trekking:

Please be aware that during the peak trekking season, which typically spans from October to November and March to April, there may be changes in the regular flight routes for travelers heading to Lukla, the gateway to the Everest region. Due to increased demand and limited slots at the Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla, airlines may redirect flights from Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap.

Reason for the Change:

The change in flight routes is primarily to manage the high volume of trekkers heading to the Everest region during peak season. The Tenzing-Hillary Airport in Lukla has a limited capacity, and adverse weather conditions can often lead to flight delays or cancellations. By diverting some flights to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap, airlines aim to reduce congestion at Lukla Airport and provide a more reliable and efficient service to trekkers.

Travel Considerations:

  1. Travel Time: The drive from Kathmandu to Manthali Airport in Ramechhap takes approximately 4-5 hours, depending on road conditions. Travelers should plan for this additional road journey before their trek to Lukla begins.
  2. Flexibility: Due to weather-related uncertainties in the mountains, it’s crucial to maintain flexibility in your trekking itinerary. Be prepared for possible flight delays or changes, and consider building extra buffer days into your schedule.

It’s a panoramic thrill flying into Kathmandu on a clear day. The views of snow-capped mountain peaks sprawling down below you are almost ecstatic, beginning a whole chain of memorable experiences that stay with you for a long, long time. And as your plane hits the tarmac, our waiting support team will meet and greet you at the airport and escort you to your hotel. Welcome drinks will be served.

Best Time to Trek:

The Everest Base Camp trek is an adventure of a lifetime, but choosing the right time to embark on this journey is crucial for a safe and enjoyable experience. The best time to trek to Everest Base Camp largely depends on weather conditions, visibility, trail accessibility, and personal preferences. The two primary trekking seasons for Everest Base Camp are the pre-monsoon (spring) season and the post-monsoon (autumn/fall) season. Here’s a breakdown of each:



1. Spring Season (March to May):

  • Spring is widely considered the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp. The weather is generally stable, with clear skies and mild temperatures, making for excellent visibility and stunning views of the Himalayan peaks.
  • The trails are adorned with blooming rhododendrons, magnolias, and other wildflowers, adding vibrant colors to the landscape.
  • Daytime temperatures at lower elevations range from 15°C to 20°C (59°F to 68°F), while temperatures at higher altitudes can drop below freezing, especially at night.
  • The spring season sees a high number of trekkers on the trail, especially during peak months like April and May. Advance booking for accommodations and flights to Lukla is recommended.


2. Autumn/Fall Season (September to November):

  • Autumn is another popular time for the Everest Base Camp trek. The weather is stable, with clear skies, minimal precipitation, and mild temperatures, making it ideal for trekking.
  • The post-monsoon period offers excellent visibility, allowing trekkers to enjoy panoramic views of the Everest region without obstruction from clouds.
  • Daytime temperatures at lower elevations range from 10°C to 15°C (50°F to 59°F), while temperatures at higher altitudes can be colder, especially in the mornings and evenings.
  • The autumn season also experiences a high number of trekkers, particularly in October, considered the peak month for trekking. It’s advisable to book accommodations and flights in advance.


Other Considerations:

  • Monsoon Season (June to August): Trekking to Everest Base Camp during the monsoon season is not recommended due to heavy rainfall, poor visibility, and increased risk of landslides and avalanches. Trails can become muddy and slippery, making trekking hazardous.
  • Winter Season (December to February): While technically possible to trek during winter, it’s not as popular due to harsh weather conditions, including extreme cold, heavy snowfall, and limited visibility. Many teahouses along the trail may be closed, and certain sections of the trail may be impassable due to snow accumulation.


Ultimately, the best time to trek to Everest Base Camp is during the spring or autumn seasons when the weather is most favorable, offering clear skies, comfortable temperatures, and breathtaking views of the Himalayas. Trekkers should consider their preferences, fitness level, and travel constraints when planning their trekking adventure.



The optimal seasons for the Everest Base Camp trek are spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). These months offer stable weather conditions, clear skies, and moderate temperatures.



Permits:

Permits are an essential aspect of trekking to Everest Base Camp, as they ensure that trekkers adhere to regulations set by the Nepalese government and help preserve the fragile ecosystem of the Everest region. Here’s what you need to know about permits for the Everest Base Camp trek:



1. TIMS Card (Trekkers’ Information Management System):

  • The TIMS card is required for all trekkers heading to Everest Base Camp. It serves as a tracking system to ensure the safety and security of trekkers in the Himalayan region.
  • There are two types of TIMS cards: Independent Trekker (Green TIMS) for individual trekkers and Organized Trekker (Blue TIMS) for those trekking with a registered trekking agency.
  • As of the latest information, the cost for a TIMS card varies depending on the trekking season and whether you’re trekking independently or with a trekking agency.


2. Sagarmatha National Park Permit:

  •  The Sagarmatha National Park, where Everest Base Camp is located, is a protected area and requires a permit for entry.
  • This permit is obtained at the entrance gate of the Sagarmatha National Park in Monjo, along the trekking route.
  • The permit fee varies for foreign nationals and Nepali citizens, with foreign trekkers typically paying a higher fee.


3. Local Area Permit (Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit):

  • In addition to the Sagarmatha National Park Permit, trekkers may also need a Local Area Permit, also known as the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entry Permit.
  • This permit is required for trekking through certain areas within the Khumbu region, including Namche Bazaar, Thame, and Khumjung.
  • The permit can be obtained at the Sagarmatha National Park entrance gate or in Namche Bazaar.


4. Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit (Optional):

  •  Some treks to Everest Base Camp may pass through parts of the Gaurishankar Conservation Area, particularly if taking alternative routes.
  • If your trek itinerary includes areas within the Gaurishankar Conservation Area, you’ll need to obtain the appropriate permit. However, this is not necessary for the standard Everest Base Camp trek route.


5. Permit Regulations:

  • Trekkers are required to carry their permits at all times during the trek and present them when requested by park officials or checkpoints along the trail.
  • It’s essential to obtain permits through authorized agencies or directly from the relevant authorities to ensure validity and compliance with regulations.
  • Permits are non-transferable and cannot be exchanged or refunded once issued.


6. Validity and Duration:

  • Permits are typically valid for the duration of the trek as specified in the itinerary.
  • Trekkers should plan their trekking dates accordingly to ensure that their permits cover the entire duration of their trek.
