Overview

Everest base camp trekking takes you to the height of 5364m which is high enough to be a challenging. Everest base camp is normally done in 12 days of time frame with flight from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. Our 15 days EBC itinerary is included of the day tours of Kathmandu valley as well. But this rapid Everest Base Camp trekking is more of achieving goal of getting to the mighty Everest Base Camp. We have designed this short base camp trekking package to fit your short holiday package. In this package there is no rest day and nothing to acclimatize in the middle, so it is not fit for the first timer in the height above 4000m. As Everest has quite different landscape and weather is dramatic in the region you will be having great risk doing this trekking.

To go with this rapid schedule one needs to be physically fit, mentally sound and adventure lover. As you change the height from 500 to 1000meters per day this trekking demands high physical stamina, insurance is compulsory as this is one of the challenging task you are facing. Scenery of this trekking is great for sure with many towering mountains like: Everest 8848m, Lotse, Nuptse, Ama Dablam, Pokalde, Pumori, Cholatse, Twaboche, Makalu, Barunse, Island peak, and many other. People; their culture and tradition resembles in the monasteries and Chhorten you see on the trail.

  1. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Can I just say me and my one friend went to seven different countries in a two month span and this was the HIGHLIGHT of our entire trip!! I can't say enough how amazing BJ was as our guide. He not only made it a fun time, but he took care of me personally when i was sick, carried my day pack for me so i could make it to base camp, and was worried about everyone's safety the entire trek, not to mention is a wicked dancer. I wouldn't change a single thing about this experience except to have brought warmer socks for night time! Was a trek of a lifetime and got to experience my 27th brithday on this trek, cried when i got to base camp, cried when they gave me a birthday cake in the middle of nowhere. Don't hesitate with this company or the experience, your in great hands!! Go sign up now! you only live once!
  2. Everest Base Camp Trek
    My son and I had an amazing experience with our trek to EBC. Our guide Keshab and his assistant guide/porter were excellent. They were very competent and conscientious about our safety. They were both warm and kind and we all felt like a family as we worked toward our goal. We also appreciate Chhatra prompt and effective communication pre-trek. It is obvious Chhantra has a highly regarded, professional, & connected organization. We felt this most accutely as we made our way back into Lukla. We knew coming in the weather was poor and none to few flights were making it out. The tea-house was full of people waiting for days complaining of their circumstance, frustrated with communication and mis-communication with their guide companies. We were presented clearly with the options, one of which I did not realize existed. Chhantra & Keshab did their magic and we were on the ground in KTM the next morning. I would also like to mention that not only were we treated very well by our own guide & porters, but other Nepal Eco Adventure Guides reached out with help as well. Bottom line Mr. Chhantra has a first class organization and I can't think of any reason he is not the best company in Kathmandu for trekking Nepal.
  3. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Chhatra has been very helpful from day one. Always quick with his replies to all my enquiries before we arrived. And continues to be very helpful throughout. Professional, jovial and courteous! Our guide Ram....the BEST! He helped everyone in the group. Always joking and smiley, even when handling difficult people and difficult situations. I was the slowest and he made sure that I was not left behind. Always encouraging. When my soles came off 1+hr before Namche, he taped them with strong tapes, smiling. & joking with asst guide Sudeep throughout! When my son fell ill, he took care of him tirelessly! We almost had to take the Rescue Heli back but Ram proceeded very slowly to Gorak Shep & EBC, checking his oxygen level n bp with the oxymeter regularly. We made it to EBC! It is Guides like him that makes a HUGE difference! Thank you Ram!!!
  4. Everest Base Camp Trek
    We did the Everest base camp with them in April'17 and really glad we choose this company. We were a big group but had four guides with us, the organization was excellent and the route the best one in terms of acclimatization. Chattra was very responsive to our emails and very informative, and happy to jump on a call when I needed any clarification on the planning stage. Our main guide Ram(Anurag) was friendly and cheerful and always had our health as a priority, ensuring everyone was coping ok. Dhana, our assistant guide, probably is the best pace setter in the world. Following his slow but steady rhythm we could have get to the end of the world, absolutely brilliant guy. On plus side was also the oxygen level check every day, it was an excellent checkpoint and we based our decisions on diamox based on it along with Ram's advice, which I think we all got right.
  5. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Many people spend months or years planning and prepping for their Everest Base Camp Trek. I starting looking into the trek one month before leaving the states! I reached out to Nepal Eco Adventures and in less than 6 hours Chhatra emailed me back with the best options to fit my schedule, descriptions of the different groups, prices, and itineraries. The amount of information offered right off the bat was impressive and my follow up questions were again very quickly answered. I felt like I could confidently make an informed decision and commit to my trek. From the very first email, I was certainly in competent, knowledgeable hands. Leading up to my departure from the states, Chhatra provided all the info I needed to prepare myself for my travels and the trek. Now, the trek... The trek was challenging mentally and physically, but one of the all-time greatest experiences of my life. I still think about the experience EVERY DAY. Our group was a collection of people from all over and I was the only solo female trekker in the group of 13. I always felt looked after by our guide, Ram (Anurag Basnet), and included by the rest of the group. Ram always had our safety and well being in mind -- he was constantly checking in with everyone and we had nightly oxygen saturation tests. We had 3 assistant guides that were not just assistants, but leaders and care takers for our group (thanks to the assistants Donah, Dupka, and Bikram!!). Our 6 porters were the real heroes of the bunch -- they haul all the gear and smile while doing their job! We all managed to make it up to base camp from Lukla and back down to Lukla without any helicopter intervention -- a very successful trekking experience. I chose Nepal Eco Adventures based on other reviews (I was reading about great trekking experiences and not medical evacuations or responses to health issues!!), Chattra's quick and thorough communication, and the company's commitment to supporting the local economy. They use human porters (not animals) in their treks, thus putting money in the pockets of the families in Nepal. If I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I would get on a plane tomorrow and trust Nepal Eco Adventures to get me to my destination safely. If you need tips, packing lists or any information, feel free to message me. I have a good amount of info put together. Since returning to the states 2 friends have expressed interest in trekking to EBC and without hesitation, I referred them to Nepal Eco Adventures!
  6. Everest Base Camp Trek
    We did a 15 day trek taking in Everest Base camp, Kalapathar, Chola pass and Gokyo along the way. We were a private group of 6 friends. Prior to arrival in Nepal, Chattra answered dozens of emails, such that we knew precisely what to expect and how to prepare before flying over. This tour company also provided us with duffel bags, sleeping bags, down jackets and trekking poles where needed, all for no additional charge. Extremely useful if you don't want to buy this stuff yourself. Our tour guide Keshab had over 16 years of experience. Each evening he'd explain what to expect the next day, made sure we weren't over exerting ourselves, and advised us the best ways to complete the trek successfully. For example he gave us recommendations on start times each day, what food we should avoid, where we should drink water using purification tablets and where we should only drink bottled water, he monitored our blood oxygen levels, suggested when/when not to take diamox and gave us medicines/treatments when we were mildly sick (colds, headaches etc). He also made sure that each lodge provided what we needed as much as possible (hot showers when available, dining times etc.). I don't doubt that without our guide we would have found the trek many times more difficult. In addition to Keshab we had an attentive assistant guide (Ram), leading the way during the walks and assisting us at the lodges. We also had 3 porters (Arjun, Kamal, Dilip) who each carried 2 duffel bags each day. Each bag weighing about 15kg, normally our porters would go ahead of us so that our duffels would already be at the lodges upon our arrival. Our guides assisted us during slightly more difficult sections, even carrying our daypacks for us sometimes, and one of our porters Dilip even joined us for some of the harder walks/climbs (EBC, Kalapathar, Gokyo Ri), in case we needed additional help. I was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of assistance and service our team of guides and porters provided us throughout the entire trek. Things I would have liked to have been better prepared for - the elevation really shocked me, I didn't realise how much more difficult it is to breathe at these altitudes. Fitness is important as well if you're not used to walking or at least running long distances. The accommodation was expectedly very basic, wouldn't recommend any kind of Everest trek if you need certain comforts. Food is fairly basic as well, it's recommended not to eat any meat during the trek since everything has to be carried up the mountain and will probably not be refrigerated. I would have brought more snacks, and possibly dried meat products just to keep spirits high. I was definitely craving different kinds of foods after 2 weeks! All in all with completion of the trek and no casualties, a successful trip. The views are unique and spectacular and whilst it was very difficult at the time, I'll look back on the experience fondly. Huge credit to the Nepal Eco Adventure team. We came away with a far stronger understanding of Nepalese culture and lifestyle and of this incredible mountain range.
  7. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Just got back from the EBC trek. My guide was Ram Karki and porter was Mekman. There was only one other trekker but we mingled with all the others at the tea houses. Ram took good care of me throughout the trek. He was easy going, helpful, caring and considerate to my needs. I struggled with the altitude and he stayed back to walk with me. I really appreciated this as I was on my own. Thank you so much Ram. The scenery was spectacular, EBC took my breath away, it is beautiful. I was unable to go to Kalapater due to altitude sickness. It hit me whilst at EBC, one minute I was fine and next my body was so weak, I needed rest. Ram helped me. I was surprised by how much harder it is to trek at altitude as at sea level I'm really strong. The food and accomodation on the trek was great. I really liked the Green Tara Hotel at Namche, they had hot showers and a very comfortable dinning area. I recommend the T-Momos, the curry was delicious. Nepalecoadventures took care of everything, flights to/from Lukla, teahouse accomodation, hotel in Kathmandu (very good hotel in the centre of Thamel), Kathmandu day tour (fantastic!). We got a free T-Shirt, pray flag and certificate. Chhatra was wonderful, email correspondence, pre and post trek organising was professional. I really liked the 900 down puffy jacket and sleeping bag. They kept me warm up at the high altitudes. I lost my iphone7 walking into Perouche, Ram and Mekman quickly left the teahouse to find it for me. I dropped it after taking a pic of a baby Yak (I love animals!). A Sherpa handed it to a couple of Westerners on the trail and Ram/Mekman got it off them. Thanks heaps for finding my phone, it had a lot of pics of Everest on it so I'm so happy you found it for me. I recommend Nepalecoadventures to anyone. They will take care of you and show you scenery that you never thought existed on earth.
  8. Everest Base Camp Trek
    My father and I decided only about a month in advance that we wanted to go to Nepal and see Everest. With about 2 weeks to spare, I sent emails out to multiple companies, and Chhatra was the first to respond in a matter of hours. He was quick with replying, and with only 3 days left before we arrived, we finalized a plan. He handled all of the permits and flights, and we were ready to go as soon as we arrived. Our guide, Rajendra, picked us up from the airport. I knew immediately that he was a good fit for us. He was talkative, and answered questions in a fun manner. His social skills were the only thing that got us a helicopter to Lukla! Throughout the trek, he was always very straightforward and honest with whatever we were doing. He was always there for whatever we needed, whenever we needed it. After it was over, he welcomed us into his home for dinner with his family. It was an experience that I will never forget. I highly recommend using Nepal Eco Adventure. Huge thanks to Chhatra for planning everything, and making sure that we had full flexibility with our planning. Thank you to Raj for truly making the experience what it was.
  9. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Starting with Chhatra is very prompt and hands on. Sorted out all accommodation, flights, equipment, you name it. Next our guide was Raj and Lakpa and we had Bir and Marn as our porters. (had one more but unfortunately didn't get to see him during the trek) Just an awesome team (or pronounce tixxa - means awesome/good in Nepali as I was told). Our group of 7 did the EBC trek. Raj and Lakpa was very easy going, helpful and organise everything for us from breakfast, lunch and dinner to refilling our waters bottles, asked if we need anything and advising us what we been planned for the next day. They mingled and played cards with everyone. When someone was feeling sick or walking at a slower rate, Raj and Lakpa will stay with them all the way to the tea houses and Bir would lead us until they catch up. Trek itself was awesome. Going to gokyo via cho-la pass is a sight worth going for. Just like if its been photoshopped. If anyone is doing EBC trek ask for Raj, Lakpa, Bir and Marn. Highly recommended. Would come back and do another guided trek with Nepal Eco Adventure. p.s. you will never starve. Food portions are huge for me that is and thumbs up to hot lemon tea.
  10. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I was taking a round-the-world trip, and the hike to Everest Base Camp was definitely the highlight. The sense of accomplishment when you hit your goal with the amazing people you meet along the way is the best feeling in the world. I went solo (with an amazing guide and porter), and if you have trepidations about that, do not worry! Everyone does the same schedule, and the accommodations get more and more tight. You quickly make friends with the adventurous people around you. My guide, Ang Jeeva Sherpa was honestly the best. He's incredibly respectful, and makes so much effort to make you comfortable. On top of that, he has ambition and a visible drive to be the best guide on the mountain. He was studying plants, accommodations, and English slang when I was going up with him. Nepal Eco Adventure was definitely the most prepared in terms of medical kits and what to do when on the mountain. Some of my friends that I made along the way had the worse guide, though he was cheaper. In fact, a group of them got lost and the guide didn't get off his butt to find the group for hours. When someone from their group got a little sick and slowed down, Ang Jeeva had to lag behind to be sure everyone was okay (only because I told him it was fine since I was feeling great). Absolute amazing professional! The hike itself is not easy, but it is not as terrible as you could imagine. All I did to train was stairs a couple of times a week. Take the proper medicines prophylactically and you'll be golden. Even if you don't take prophylactics, just take it easy. Ang Jeeva made sure I took it slower than I even thought I would prefer. He took me to tons of tea houses with beautiful views and delicious warm tea. This is the mark of a real professional. Others will push you along so you'll get sick. This is a scam that bad porters and guides do to get a commission from the helicopter evacuations. The Himalayas are magical. You really do need to be immersed in the microclimate forests, weather patterns, and majestic mountains to really understand. The milky river just paints a beautiful stripe next to cliff set towns in amazing valleys. We were blessed with just perfect weather the whole way up too. I ended up being over prepared and probably could have cut back a lot. Honestly, it was an amazing trip and worth every penny I spent. The others in my group would agree, Ang Jeeva is the best guide possible. He did great with the huge group we became. Please request him by name! And bring a camera - he loves taking pictures for you.

  12. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I have recently trekked in Khumbu, Nepal with Chhatra Karki, who I can highly recommend. Chhatra has an enormous amount of experience and is as knowledgeable and well equipped as any of the guides you will find in the mountains. He is a natural at his work and extremely professional in his duties, and he really made the difference on this trek – making a great trip into a truly unforgettable experience. I would use Chhatra’s services again without question, I saw many guides, some of which were substandard and didn’t really do anything more than the minimum required, their customers were complaining but I did not have a single thing to complain about. His service started as soon as I arrived in Kathmandu and lasted for the complete duration of my trip, despite some large changes of plan during the trip. He has plenty of solid international references, which checked out very well and having used him I now add myself to that list of references, please contact me if you need any further information (michaeldavies007@hotmail.com). He needs notice so if you want to use his services you will need to let him know in advance as much as possible, but if you do this he will provide you with plenty of flexibility and ensure that you get the best possible trip to Nepal.
  13. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I went on a 12 day trek up to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patter with Chhatra Karki Chhatra was a fantastic guide in every way. He has extensive experience of the area, knew all about the best places to stop on the way, and most importantly was very friendly and a great laugh. His English was excellent, albeit with a Scottish accent! When I struggled at the high altitude he slowed and stayed as my perseverance finally paid off, and I reached Kala Patter for sunrise. For a full description on my trek, go to stuartbarfield.blogspot.com and look for the posts on ‘EBC trek’. I would definitely recommend going in a small group with your own personal guide, not joining a large company - you miss out on the true Everest experience, plus you can come into difficultly if you get ill.
  14. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I travelled with a group of friends in October 2011 and has the most fantastic time. Our trip took us to Kathmandu, flight to Lukla, then walking to Namche Bazaar, via Tengboche up the valley to Chhukung then across to the Khumbu valley picking up the route to Gorak Shep, Kala Pattar (for a spectacular sunset view of Everest) and Everest Base Camp. We then crossed the Cho La pass to Gokyo for one last unforgettable view of Everest from Gokyo Ri before returning down the valley to Namche Bazaar again. Our guide was Chhatra Karki and I can unreservedly recommend him. He is a lovely bloke with an enthusiasm for his work and pride in his beautiful country which shine through everything he does. He really looked after us and as well as always being calm and cheerful he was efficient and professional. He knew the best places to stay and to eat, he adapted the schedule as necessary to suit our pace and he kept everything running smoothly. It was my first trip to Nepal but the friends I travelled with have been trekking with Chhatra for several years now and I can see why - I want to go back again next year!
  15. Everest Base Camp Trek
    In September 2013 I went to Nepal alone as a woman to explore Nepal and go trekking.From the beginning, Nepal Eco Adventure organized everything really well, they picked me up and took me to a great hotel in the middle of Kathmandu. After 2 days of sightseeing I started trekking to Everest Base Camp and KalaPathar. My guide was Chhatra Karki, he was more than great, professional, helpful and really experienced. I wasn't sure what it would be like to do a trek like this on my own as a young female traveler, but Chhatra made me feel comfortable and seemed to intuitively know when I needed help and when I needed space. I felt very safe throughout and he explained me very interesting things about nature and culture. It felt like trekking with a friend I know a long time, which was great. Chhatra knew so much people in the teahouses along the way and he had a good relationship with all the people there. Every day he was open and flexible for my ideas, we did some great and isolated side trips and everyday was an adventure.The highlight was the peak day on Kala Pathar with sunrise behind the Mount Everest in the early morning. The trip was one of the best things I ever did and there could have been no better company and guide for me to organize that! After coming back to Kathmandu, Nepal Eco Adventure organized a relaxing trip to Chitwan National Park to do some Elephant Back Safaris and to watch Rhinos in the jungle and a trip to Pokhara. Within this time of the side trips they organized my Indian Visa and everything worked out perfectly. The whole stay in Nepal was well organized and just awesome, I cannot recommend this company enough! I felt safe all the time and I can recommend Nepal Eco Adventure to all females who want to travel alone.Highly recommended to all people who want to explore Nepal in an authentic and amazing way!
  16. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Nepal Eco Adventure has been very pleasant, friendly and professional the entire time we were in Nepal and on our trek. Received a warm welcome at the airport from Ramesh who later turned out to be our guide for the Everest base camp trek. Then to the office to meet Chhatra, the owner, who provided good information and cleared any doubts about the trek and safety. It was assuring to know that the owner and staff were experienced trekkers. The trek was a very good experience; Ramesh and Nikhil, the assistant guide, took really good care of us. One of my friends unfortunately suffered altitude sickness and had to leave the mountain accompanied by Ramesh. In his absence, Nikhil stepped up and we were able to finish the trek with no issues. There were no communication issues and overall had a good time. Turns out Nikhil loves playing cards and dancing (he's a good dancer too) which provided wonderful entertainment! Even the porters carried our bags and served us with a smile which was unexpected and excellent! The fruit platter every evening after dinner was a splendid touch. If/when I come back to Nepal for trekking, I'll be reaching out to them again. Definitely recommend the company. Thank you for the great experience. Cheers!
  17. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I only have great things to say about Nepal Eco Adventure. Me and two friends decided to trek to Everest Base Camp over Christmas. I contacted Chhatra and he was professional, knowledgeable, and very quick to respond. He was able to accommodate our group for the dates we wanted at a great price, and was able to advise on logistics and gear. All safety concerns were addressed beforehand, so we arrived in Nepal ready for an amazing adventure. Throughout the trek, the guides and porters were incredible. They made sure we were all well fed and had everything we needed for a great trip. I had the unfortunate situation of becoming sick early on in the trek. I had terrible gastric issues followed by symptoms of acute mountain sickness and, in the end, needed to be heli-rescued from the Everest region (Note: this is rare- so don't let that deter you!). The guides Ramesh and Nik monitored me the whole time and put my wellness as their priority. I was taken to a hospital in Kathmandu where Ramesh and Chhatra checked in with me regularly and made sure I was okay. After I recovered in hospital, I now had a few days free, so Chhatra helped me arrange a side trip with Ramesh to Pokhara and Austalian Camp to view the Annapurna Mountain Range at sunrise. All to say, the care and consideration from Chattra and his team were there the entire time I was in Nepal, and they made sure my trip would be a memorable one despite having to cut the trek short. If you're looking for prompt and attentive correspondence; very experienced and personable guides; and a team with a high level of service who makes your health and safety their main priority, then I definitely recommend booking with Nepal Eco Adventure. You will not be disappointed.
  18. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I went on a trek to everest base camp with Nepal eco adventures and it was superb. Chhatra answered my emails and incessant questions. Whilst on the trek , our guides Ramesh and Nik made sure all our needs were met . They made everything comfortable even at 5000+ m !:) a great company with heart, I would strongly recommend them for anybody gg to the EBC trek.
  19. Everest Base Camp Trek
    Nepal Eco Adventures is fantastic. Well organized, friendly, safe, and reliable. I spent my Christmas vacation hiking to Everest base camp, and exploring the city of Kathmandu. If you've ever thought about hiking to Everest base camp, definitely contact Chhatra Karki to organize it. If you're lucky, you'll get to spend the adventure with the same porters and guides that I got to spend my time with. Nik and Ramesh were excellent guides. They made sure our trip was safe, informative, and entertaining. Beyond that, they took care of my friend when he began suffering the effects of altitude sickness. The food and lodgings along the trek were topnotch. Exploring Kathmandu was a feast for the senses. Go to Nepal. Book with Nepal Eco Adventures. Whenever I return (and I will return), I'll definitely be booking with Nepal Eco Adventure again.
  20. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I highly recommend Nepal Eco Adventures for trekking in Nepal. The staff are great and their level of service surpassed all expectation. Chhatra, Ramesh, Nek and our are porters made the Everest base camp trek an unforgettable experience. During the trek our guides Ramesh and Nek gave a good insight into local culture and catered to our needs wherever possible. They kept us smiling the whole time and allowed us to build a fantastic team spirit throughout the journey. If, and when I go trekking in Nepal again I will definitely be using Nepal Eco Adventures.
  21. Everest Base Camp Trek
    I completed the Everest Base Camp and 3 high passes Trek with Nepal Eco Adventure in November 2014 and it was a fantastic experience, made even better by the exceptional service provided by Chhatra at Nepal Eco Adventure. I had contacted several trekking companies and decided to go with Chhatra as he is a genuinely nice guy, understands clients want good service with good guides and does everything he can to provide this. He loves to travel also and as a result understands the needs of a modern traveler. I trekked solo for 17 days with an excellent guide and was impressed with the standard of the tea houses and the quality of food provided. The walk itself was phenomenal, there aren't enough adjectives to describe how beautiful it is up there! The great thing for me was the flexibility of the trip, I had the ability to add on days if I needed to (I did get some AMS and was glad of this option) and change the literary if I wanted to. They deserve their 5 star rating and I couldn't recommend them enough if you're planning on trekking in Nepal!
  22. Everest Base Camp Trek
    My friend and I (Females ages 22) have just got back from an amazing trip and without a doubt our trek was a major highlight! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Chhatra who took us to the office and went through everything with us, and sorted out walking poles and sleeping bags. Chhatra was extremely helpful and informative and made us feel very welcome on our first day travelling! The trek itself was fantastic, the views were amazing and and accommodation throughout was great! Chhatra was extremely helpful and flexible with everything allowing us to fit in all we had wanted to. Once back in Kathmandu Chhatra kindly warned us of flight delays that may affect us and was extremely helpful in finding out what was happening and whether or not our flight has changed. Overall a fantastic experience that we would recommend 100%!

FAQs

What do I need to expect about the Temperature, meal, and drinking water, insurance, walking hours during the trek, shower ?

“Temperature”

Spring – February to mid June

Temperature during this season is 15°C as lowest and with a maximum of 25°C during sunny days, Minimum of -15°C in the morning and at night normally for areas above 4000 meters.

Monsoon – End of June to Mid-September

Winter – December to February

Temperature during the winter is freezing cold during the morning and the nights to -08°C but the temperature during the sunny day might be 10°C.

Apart from the above given temperature, Temperature during the trekking varies from region to region, season to season and itinerary to itinerary. To be precise you can calculate the range of the temperature corresponding with the altitude increase. Temperatures illustrated above are for the normal condition but it might be changeable with the special weather condition. Regarding the trekking regions Everest trekking region is supposed to have lower temperature as it starts from Lukla normally. But for the trekking to Annapurna temperature at the base camp and the Thorong-La pass might be to the minimum as illustrated above, but the lower regions of the same trail has hot weather and crazy hot if it is sunny day.

“Meal”

Nepal Eco Adventure provides meals three times per day; you choose the food from the menu. Menu at the tea house are with varieties of food and you can choose among them. Since you have to be hygienic with eating habit to make sure your trekking is safe and sound, you can ask for the suggestion from our guides. They will help you to accept and avoid the item of the food you see in the menu of the restaurant in the trekking trail.

“Drinking water”

Drinking and walking must be sound and balance during the activity like trekking, we suggest you to drink as more as you can while you are in the trekking. Most of the tea houses and restaurant in every trekking trail has facility of bottled water or purified water. But you need to buy and it might cost from $1 to $4; as the price of everything goes on increasing with increase in the height. Even if you don’t want to buy the water; there are abundant sources of water on the trail and tea houses where you can fill up your bottles and use water purification tablets, SteriPen, Life-straw, iodine, water filters. Make sure you have enough of these purification tablets for 5L of water per day.

We do not recommend you to buy bottled water during the trek as water is expensive and even if it is cheap; this trend will increase the trash of empty bottles. And being Nepal Eco Adventure we try our best to minimize harm to the nature and using water purification technique instead of bottled water helps a lot keeping Eco-friendly trekking.

“Insurance”

As you already spend money for your beautiful holiday package with us, why not to increase the amount a bit to safeguard while traveling? Nepal Eco Adventure tries best effort to make sure you are safe in our hands but as said planning is to be done for the worst situation, we suggest you to be insured before traveling. Even we ask a copy of your travel insurance during booking of your trip. Don’t take RISK while traveling and make sure you are safe from all the prospective and hence we suggest you to be in good hands.

“Walking hours during trek”

Normally the itineraries we provide you are designs to walk in the reasonable pace for 5-7 hours a day. But the geography of the trail and the fitness level of the trekker always change this expected walking hour. Walking downhill is much easier in the high altitude and always takes half of the time for same distance of uphill walking in the Himalaya. Walking above the height of 4000m is always tough and your pace will be slower than expected.

“Shower”

Trekking gives you sweating and if you don’t shower with sweaty body, might be uneasy. But showering is not a big problem even in the Himalaya as every tea house has hot/cold shower. You need to pay for the hot shower and cold showers are normally free. But we suggest you to have less number of showers as possible since you might get cold. Avoid shower in the cold place and avoid being sick during your trekking.

Trekking at Nepal will be best during the seasons of spring and autumn. But according to the will of the trekkers, the trekking and visiting in Nepal can be managed. The trekking at the high altitude should be done during the summer time or September to November and March to May but the trekking at the low lands can be done at throughout the year.

The trekking in Nepal is one of the most interesting things that the visitors in Nepal want to do. The trekking will take the visitors of Nepal to different parts of Nepal. Generally, trekking in Nepal will goes for about 5 to 7 hours per day in every trekking but the toughness of the trekking will differ from its grade. There are different types of trekking grading from the easy, medium, challenging and demanding. Normally in Trekking covers 3000 meters to 8848 meters which has categories in various stage of grade. Expedition is challenging but trekking is normal and easy.

How fit do need to be for trekking? will I be able to do it?

It depends on you; if you’re reasonably fit and enjoy walking then trekking is certainly for you. Choose the trekking route suites your fitness level. Obviously shorter treks are easier then longer ones, longer and bigger treks require a better standard of fitness. If you are in good physical condition then you do not require any hiking experience for short trekking. But if you are planning for the longer ones then you should try some longer day hikes.

How long will be the trekking?

The trekking at the different parts of Nepal will be different according to the distance of the trekking destinations. Generally, there are different places where one can go for trekking and the duration of the trekking will generally goes for about 1 to 4 weeks. But the trekking at the different places like in city tours will be short but the trekking towards the base camp of the high hills will be generally long.

What is tea house and camping trekking in Nepal?

In Nepal, generally we can do two types of trekking. In the tea houses trekking, we will do the trekking by resting the night at the lodges or the tea houses at different places of the trekking trails. The tea houses trekking at Nepal will be comfortable than the camping trekking because the trekkers should not have to take any tensions regarding the accommodation and foods. But besides the tea houses trekking, camping trekking in Nepal is also equally popular. The camping trekking will be based on the trekking where the night will be resting at the camps, where we will set up our camps at the different parts of the trekking trails for our convenience. We will have our meals at the camps and will rest the night at camps. As compared to the lodging trekking, camping trekking is a bit difficult.

What types of food will be served during the trekking?

While trekking in Nepal, meals are prepared in tea houses, good standards of hygiene, fruit and vegetable soaked in iodine water before cooked. The food along the trail will be simple and a mix of local and international cuisine. If the trekking is camping trekking, then the trekkers will mainly be served with the local foods of Nepal and as well as continental and western foods. Due to the lack of electricity and refrigerators along our trekking route you will eat a largely vegetarian diet. In Kathmandu you will find meals in good quality tourist restaurants. Most of lodges serve boiled and filter water which is safe. It is also possible to buy the bottle of mineral water in the trek.

Does your company organize domestic flights, hotel booking and other services?

Yes. Since we are Nepal based company we refer to arrange your international flights from your home. But domestic flight ticket, Kathmandu city tour, and you accommodation will be included in our package.

While visiting to Nepal, trekking guides is almost mandatory to trekking in Nepal for everyone. When you hired one your trip will lot more informative and memorable. You get lots of knowledge about country. But if the trekkers is well experienced and have visited at different places of Nepal many times then s/he may not need the trekking guides. But trekking guide can play big role to make your trekking They will provide information about the trekking destination along with its surroundings. Similarly, if any problems will arise during the trekking, then the guides will solve it easily and it will be rather difficult for the trekkers themselves to solve them.
