FAQ's

♂ Health and Fitness Requirements

This trek requires that you walk on an average of six hours every day, excluding the rest days. You will be hiking uphill every day from the day you land in Lukla until the day you climb up to Kalapathar on Day 10 of the tour. The highest point of this tour is almost 18,000 feet above sea level. Naturally, this requires a certain degree of fitness. Everest Base Camp Trek is recommended only for people in good health and fitness with some experience of trekking behind them. There is no restriction of upper age on this tour; your fitness is what matters. Minors who wish to be part of this tour must be accompanied by an adult.

Most people in reasonably good health would be able to make this trek without any injuries or serious sickness/problems. Check with us if you have any questions about your ability to make this tour.

Due to the altitudes, we travel in, this tour may not be suitable for people with heart ailments, chronic problems related to lungs and those with high blood pressure related problems. If you have experienced serious altitude sickness in the past that required hospitalization, this tour is not recommended for you. This tour is also not suitable for people with thyroid-related problems. If you are in doubt, please check with your doctor before signing up on this tour.

♂ Weather.
We are doing this trek at the beginning of winter. The choice of the season has its advantages:
The peak hiking season is behind us, which means the trails are quieter and so are the villages where we will be staying.
The weather is clearer than any other season, making it great for photography. Expect wonderful light during sunsets and sunrise.
Temperatures dip to fairly low numbers during this season. Nighttime temperatures go below the freezing point, while there is still some chill in the air during the day. However, the tea-houses keep you comfortable during the night, and you will warm up as you keep walking during the day.

♂ Accommodation
Accommodation will be in a comfortable hotel Kathmandu.
Accommodation will be in tea-houses during the trek. Tea houses are guesthouses with permanent housing and bedding that can keep you comfortable. You will be provided with sleeping bags.

♂ What about Lukla Flight?
Because of bad weather, we could face problems with domestic flights to/from Lukla (Delayed or even cancelled). It is very rare, but it could happen even in the best trekking season. Thus, we always recommend you to add supplement night/s in Kathmandu after your trek if that is possible for you (just in case). Trekkers need to be prepared for all weather conditions. In the Himalayas weather can cancel or delay the scheduled flight(s) to/from Lukla airport. To be sure that you make your trek, or return from it, it may be necessary to make this flight by a chartered helicopter. Helicopters can operate in some weather that aircraft cannot. Should a helicopter be needed, it will be at the expense of the trekkers, and not something covered by Community Trek Please keep approximately USD 500 (one way) accessible in case this situation presents itself. This suggested amount is in addition to the emergency fund suggested below.

Hopefully, weather delays will not occur, or if they do it will be for a limited time. Should the delays stretch into days and neither helicopter nor flight are a viable option, a collective decision will be made by the group on how to proceed. This is especially true if the delays are prior to the trek, as the original trek may no longer be feasible. Your Guide will be there to help with this process.

Is there Drones allow? 
Please note that drones and the flying of drones are prohibited in Nepal. If you violate these regulations the police may take you into custody.
