Before beginning their ascent of the world’s highest mountain, climbers rest and prepare at Everest Base Camp. The North Base Camp in Tibet and the South Base Camp in Nepal are the two base camps used to ascend Mount Everest, respectively. The majority of people refer to the Nepalese camp as the Everest Base Camp.

How can I trek up to Mount Everest Base Camp?

To complete the climb to Everest Base Camp, you have three major options: sign up for a package tour through a travel agency, embark on a solo do a package tour through an agency, go it alone (without a group or guide), but hire a porter or guide, or go it alone entirely.

If you are alone or unsure of your ability to complete the trek alone, taking a guided tour through an agency is a good option. It is simpler but more expensive.

It is simple to find porters and guides in Kathmandu; simply visit any local agency, and they will help you coordinate people for your needs.

The only thing you need to arrange to do yourself is an airline, bus, or jeep ticket from Kathmandu to Lukla. Everyone stays in the same small "towns" with a lot of tea establishments, you follow a very obvious trail, and it is

How Much Money Do I Need For My Trek to Everest Base Camp?

For an accurate cost analysis of our 2020 expedition to Everest Base Camp, broken down by exact dollar amount. 

If you set aside $700 for a self-guided 12-day EBC journey, you should have enough money for the trip’s flights, lodging, meals, water, tea, and snacks. Going to Lukla by land rather than by air is the best way to save money; we’ll talk more about this in a moment.


ATMs are only available in Lukla and Namche Bazaar, the two locations where you may find them on the Everest Base Camp trip.-

On the Everest Base Camp Trek, lodging Teahouses are where trekkers staying at Everest Base Camp stay. Designed to house hikers, teahouses are bed-and-breakfast inns. The Nepalese EBC teahouses offer straightforward, spotless lodging.

As long as you place a food order at the teahouse, the cost of tea house lodging ranged from free to $3.

Despite the thin walls, the temperature inside and outside is quite constant. At the teahouse, blankets are available, and when it got incredibly cold at night at the higher altitudes, sleeping in a light sleeping bag underneath the blankets we were wearing was plenty.

Love trekking then you can also see sar pass circuit trek.

The price of everything Increases as you climb, including the shower on the EBC Trek. The cost of hot showers increased after Namche Bazaar. After a strenuous day of walking, it is worth the NPR 500 average cost of a hot shower. When you trek early in the season, the water is frequently frozen in the pipes, so you can only take a bucket shower with a bucket of hot water, which is fine. However, in February at Gorakshep, it is simply too cold. In addition to a “dry shower,” we had Wet Wipes packed. If you don’t have access to water or soap to wash your hands, bring hand sanitizer.

Chargers are required because most tea shops lack plugs but have lights in the rooms.

Since the bedrooms lack electrical outlets, the dining room is typically used for charging.


Food in the camp

You can eat and unwind with other guests in the tea house’s typically spacious dining area. A fireplace burning wood and yak dung is in the middle of the dining area.

Now, Western toilets were present in every lodge where we stayed. Your toilet paper must be brought.

Some of the communities have lovely lodges that you may stay in for $20 to $40; for a schedule, continue reading.

Trekkers’ meals at Everest Base Camp

Nice meals are available for purchase at the tea houses, where most guests eat two or three times daily.
