Guide and porter during the trek

Guide and porter make any trek in the Himalayas bearable with their support, and this goes for the Everest Base Camp luxury trek as well. Even though it is a luxury trek, the challenges are not less than the standard EBC trek. So, a guide and porter are needed for a safe and immersive trekking experience.

With expert knowledge about the guide, you will be navigating the trail safely and easily. Likewise, he will make you familiar with the local customs, beliefs, and region. You will have a friend to talk to who will make the journey delightful. Likewise, porters assist by carrying the heavy load (your duffel bag).

The EBC trail is not flat or easy. Navigating the trail requires focus and balance, and carrying a heavy bag on top of that increases the risk of injuries. So, porters carry them for you as they are trained and experienced. The guide and porter pair will also encourage you to complete the trek and become your sturdy support.

What is the best time to do the Everest Base Camp luxury trek?

The best time to do the Everest Base Camp luxury trek is March, April, and May (spring) & September, October, and November (autumn). These months are top trekking times in the Khumbu region. The attractive beauty and stable weather welcome hundreds of trekkers at these times of the year, making the trail quite bustling.

The climate stays moderate. The daytime is warm and allows for a comfortable hike. While the cool breeze of evening and morning hours will rejuvenate your soul. The clear mountain panoramas and the thriving vegetation add to the scenery. You may also get to see the biggest Nepali festivals in these two seasons if you are right on time.

Many trekkers also love to do winter Everest Base Camp luxury trekking because the price of lodges and meals is low in this season. You can trek in December, January, and February, but note that the climate is very cold, and the mountain views may get obstructed in the morning times. The trail is not crowded, so perfect for tranquility lovers.

Travel insurance for the Everest Base Camp luxury trek

The Everest Base Camp trek route has potential risks of altitude sickness and unseen circumstances that may require you to leave the region immediately. So, travel insurance with helicopter evacuation and medical bill coverage is important if you want to do this trek.

The travel insurance is not included in our Everest Base Camp luxury trek cost. Foreign trekkers are also not allowed to buy travel insurance in Nepal, so you have to buy it in your country. You can include as much coverage as you wish, but helicopter evacuation is mandatory.

Everest Base Camp luxury trek difficulty and altitude sickness

In general, the Everest Base Camp luxury trek difficulty is considered moderate. However, the difficulty can vary from person to person as per their fitness level and previous trek experience. The Everest Base Camp trek route is rugged, with a handful of steep sections and glaciers walking in the upper part of the trail.

The primary challenge of the Everest Base Camp luxury trek is the high altitude and long walking hours. The trek ascends to 5,5,45 meters from sea level, which creates problems for most of the trekkers who are used to living at sea level. So, trekkers are highly recommended to be aware of altitude sickness symptoms and take preventive measures right away if needed.

Our Everest Base Camp luxury trek itinerary has two acclimatization days that lower the risk of altitude sickness. On top of that, if you keep yourself hydrated and take care of your food and rest, you can complete this trek without suffering from altitude sickness. For the Everest Base Camp luxury trek, trekkers have to be in decent shape and in good health.

Our Everest Base Camp luxury trek package provides you with three meals a day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). You can buy more food and drinks on your own, so carry some Nepali money with you.
