How to choose the best Everest Base Camp Trek package?
Are you looking for once in a lifetime Everest Base Camp trek? There are several hundred trekking agencies offering the Everest Base Camp trek package. You might be a little overwhelmed as there are so many companies advertising tours to base camp that you don't know who to choose. As an ethical Sherpa-owned Company, here we will help you to choose the book right package. As you know, the main variable that varies from company to company is the inclusion of all meals and beverages at the trekking and hotel in the city and mountain lodge accommodation while trekking.
What makes our all-inclusive Everest Base camp trek package different than others?
You may find some companies are cheaper because food and drink are not included or they only provide limited Meals during the trek or they do not provide quality lodges during the trek, or they do not include hot showers and hot drinks and you can set aside your own budget for this. Another most important thing is you should check the ethics of the company including how they are contributing to their society and how they are supporting their porters and other local staff and resources.
