In case of delay in flight prior to trek departure or at the end of the trek, you need to meet your accommodation, food costs by yourself.

Q.When is the best time to go to Everest Base Trek?
Mainly we have 2 seasons for Everest Base Camp trekking, the autumn (September, October & November) and spring (March, April & May)season are good when weather is pleasant, The monsoon rains have cleared the sky of dust and the views are often spectacular, clear sky, flowers are in blooming, good trail condition. The winter Dec, Jan and Feb is also good; Dec is Feb is better than Jan, only colder and some time foggy weather. The summer ( June, July, August is rainy season so visibility can be less and rain will be issue, considering Summer June is ok as in general rain will nearly from last week of June. The benefit to do the trek in off season is there are not many tourists, very easy to find the best rooms in the lodge.
Q.How fit do I have to be?
Trekking to Everest base camp is considered fairly strenuous trekking, some previous small hiking and trekking experience is the plus point for the trip however, people have no previous trekking or mountaineering experience also can do the trek easily. People who have good physical condition and able to work 5 to 6 hours daily in rocky trail can do the trek. We tailor made the trip itinerary depends on people fitness level.
Q.Do I really need to use a guide for any Everest region trek?
It depends on your skills and experience but I would almost always recommend some kind of help for the logistics. Long treks are a maze of details. Also, a great guide will make your overall experience more memorable.
Q.How difficult is the Everest Base trek?
Everest base camp trek is considered moderate to Strenuous trek and suitable for those who are moderately fit. The treks involve more walking up and down and climb to higher altitudes, where you will be rewarded with close-up views of big mountains.

Yes, you will have facilities like bank and ATM service in Namche Bazaar and Lukla. In both the mentioned places there are banks and ATM service. But it's better to carry cash as it's uncertain to function.
Q.Am I too old to do this trek?
We don’t think so you are too old, recently we have arranged the trek for 76 years ole man he did it very easily with taking 2 days more time. There are many trekkers who are older 60s walking much better than your trekkers. And remember the oldest lady to climb Everest was 73 when she did it. And the oldest men to climbed Everest were 76 years old from Nepal.
Q.What type of shoes should I buy?
Good comfortable trekking shoes is the most important for the trek, for shorter trek tennis shoes or snickers is ok while longer treks requites the good boots have good ankle support, plenty of tow room for long descents, a bit like timberlands, they are a bit heavier, but most importantly you want to get those that wrap the angle, this prevents you from twisting your ankles on uneven grounds. Good lightweight trekking boots or light all leather boots are perfect. Proper fit is a must for boots and must be lightly worn before use it for trekking.
Q.Will I see Everest from Base Camp?
No the base camp is too near to give you a view. However you can see the top of the Everest from Namche and when you are walking to the base camp. The best views are from Kala Patthar. The sun rises over the Everest so the best light over the peak is in the evening. But in the evenings many a times clouds will rule.
Q.What if I get sick while on trek?
It depends on nature of sickness. Normally if you get sick you will descend to lower altitude with help of support staff. But if the case is critical we will arrange emergency helicopter evacuation service. Our guide will take immediate action according to the situation. Altitude sickness can affect everyone while trekking including young and healthy people and is a genuine concern in Khumbu. If you feel dizzy, suffer palpitations or severe headaches, return immediately to a lower altitude. Do not take altitude sickness lightly. It can be fatal!
