Everest base camp trek return by helicopter is not a very difficult trek. But, a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy this trek fully. If you are relatively fit and don’t mind walking 5-6 hours a day then you can walk to Everest base camp then fly back to Lukla from Gorakshep. As there are steep ascents and descents, rocky paths, rock steps, and some moraine walking. So, this trek isn’t suitable for anyone with knee problems or weak ankles. Anyone with heart trouble or lung problems should check with their doctor.

We suggest you do some physical fitness programs such as running, swimming, hiking before embarking on your journey.

We accommodate you in deluxe rooms at the best 5 Star category hotels in Kathmandu with breakfast included. Along the trekking routes, teahouses/lodges we accommodate you best sherpa lodges in each place. We can also offer you sleeping bags if needed (to be returned after the trip) but it is a good idea to always have your own sleeping gear. The lodges in trekking routes generally provide twin bedrooms. At times when possible, dining will be around a bonfire. In teahouses, food will be prepared in the kitchen, where you should not enter without permission.

Most of the sherpa lodges along the Everest base camp trekking route cook a delicious range of mostly vegetarian fare. Sherpa stew, Pasta, tuna bakes, noodles, potatoes, eggs, daal Bhat (rice and lentils), bread, soup, fresh vegetables (variety depends on the season), and even some desserts like apple pies, pancakes, and some interesting attempts at custard. In many larger villages, you may find some meat items on the menu. You can always get hot chocolate, tea, and hot lemon drinks, as well as soft drinks, and treats like chocolate and crisps. Each day dinner and breakfast will be at a lodge you'll stay at while lunch will be taken on the way to your destination.

No problem at all because the lodges mostly serve vegetarian meals. We always recommend our clients to eat vegetarian meals to avoid food poisoning, eating heavy meals and non-vegetarian meals at a high altitude is not really safe for the stomach.

Yes, most of the places have hot shower facilities on this trek

Yes, they have all received 45-day training from the Hotel Management and Tourism Center in Nepal. The guides have also received high-altitude first aid training from KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project.

Our company insures all our trekking staff members, including guides, cooks, Sherpa’s and porters. Please browse through Company Information pages to view insurance details.

Check the terms and conditions of your travel insurance very carefully before embarking on the Everest Base Camp trek – the elevations involved are above 5000m, and many companies simply will not cover you at that level. (World Nomads offers trekking up to 6000m under its level 2 cover.)

You need to be covered for a helicopter evacuation from the mountains in emergencies, and, if you have a connecting flight to your home country, are flying out of Lukla, and planes stop running, your insurance should cover the cost of a helicopter out of Lukla. We fully facilitate for our valued clients for any emergencies issue.

We suggest that you keep the weight of your trek bag maximum of 15kgs. Each porter can carry a maximum of 30kgs. We provide 1 porter to carry 2 clients' duffel bags. Please note that you are allowed only 15 kgs of luggage including your hand bag for the Lukla flight. For excess baggage, you have to pay extra charges.

The hotel we use in Kathmandu has a securely locked room where they store our client's extra belongings in a safe way. You can also safely leave your belongings at our office.

Whilst on the trek, our porter will take care of your luggage. All you need to carry is your small day bag for your personal belongings like a camera, water bottle, sun cream, etc only. Yes, we do provide you with duffle bags.

Our expert Local Sherpa guides and porters have trained in mountain first aid and altitude-related illness. The solution to severe altitude problems is always to descend. Thousands of our clients hike the Everest base camp each year and most do not have serious issues. If someone is unwell or has an accident, we evacuate them out to the nearest road or village where we organize helicopter evacuation back to Kathmandu. We always have sufficient staff with our crew so that one of our people can leave to care for the sick/injured client and the rest of the group can continue on with their trek or climb if they wish to.

There are now cell phone masts installed at Gorakshep so, it is possible to get 3G connectivity to the entire Everest Base Camp trek. The best network above Lukla on the Everest Base Camp trek is NCell. Please note in order to get a Nepal SIM card you will need to provide a photocopy of the details page of your passport and one passport photo. Our guide will help you to buy SIM Card. Also, all our guides are equipped with the local mobile phone. You may wish to pass the number of our guide to your family for the callback or you can make a call from the guide’s mobile and pay him directly for the international call too.

We ensure the travel safety of all our trekking guests, both male and female. Nepal, on the whole, is both very safe and welcoming of foreign visitors. We have longstanding, strong relationships with the sherpa lodges we frequently use and know them to be safe and reliable. In addition, our guides are consistently mindful of all guest's whereabouts while trekking. We travel in small groups, all the better to easily maintain continual contact.

Mountain Sherpa Trekking & Expeditions is committed to looking after our porters and our trekking weights are carefully calculated so that our porters are not overloaded. We provide 1 porter for 2 trekkers. There will be one expert local Sherpa guide for 2 people. For the above 5 trekkers, we provide an extra assistance Sherpa guide. This arrangement ensures that if anybody in the group gets sick, the trip can still go ahead as planned.

We can run the trek for groups of any size but after our years of experience, we have found a maximum of eight to twelve people to be the optimum size for a successful trip. However, if you'd like to book this trip for a smaller group, solo trek, or just a private family trek then please let us know, certainly, We will arrange a private Everest base camp trek as per your requirement.

In the Everest base camp trek return by helicopter, most lodges/tea houses have electricity. You can charge your iPod or camera batteries while on treks. Please note that lodges/tea houses will charge you some money for the charging fee (1 USD to 3 USD per hour) during your trek.

The tips for the guides, driver, and porters are not included in the price you paid for your tour. However is something extra present to your staff after a special trek, however, you must know that tips are not mandatory and instead you must take from a different view of point as saying thanks after making successfully your trip to Everest Base camp. Normally, we recommend you to spend a minimum of 10% of your total trip cost for tipping the entire local staff, the ratio of tipping guide and porter will be given to you at the pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu before starting the trek.

It depends on your spending habits. Generally, in Kathmandu, you can allocate USD 10 to USD 15 for lunch and dinner. USD 7 to USD 10 per person a day will be enough to buy chocolates, dessert after a meal or pay for the hot shower and a few drinks during the trekking.

This is a very practical matter for Everest base camp trek return by helicopter, however, many companies don't take it seriously, The flights between Kathmandu and Lukla are generally reliable but if the weather is not good they can be canceled for the entire day. Our 17-day package includes one extra contingency day in case of delays. If your flight is delayed in Kathmandu we will rebook your flight for the next day. We may also be able to provide an option for a privately chartered helicopter. If you choose to take the helicopter this can cost an additional $150 to $500 or more depending on availability and group size.
