Q.How to enter the Everest Base trek?

We can start our Everest region treks with a scenic flight of about 35 min to Lukla airport. Namche Bazaar is the famous gateway village of Everest. You can also start from Jiri which is about 7-8 hrs from Kathmandu. Route of flight to Phaplu is also quite popular to avoid Jiri and Lukla.


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. One should work often rough trails, rock and boulder at least 5-6 hours each day and crossing 4500m above high altitude passes, the treks will reach 5550 m at Kalapathar. People have general physical fitness can do the trekking, If have previous hiking and camping experience is more easy to do the trek, you can train yourself  for this trek, we have 76 years old man did the trek recently.


Q.How should I prepare for the trek?

The main things in the trek is one should able to walk 5-6 hours every day in rough rocky trail, so every day short walk up to 1 hour,1,2 month before the trek  is best suggestion, jogging, yoga will be also advisable.


Q.Can I trek as solo women, is it safe?

There is never problem trekking with solo women or join in the group, we have operated trek for many single female traversal our guide and porters are honest, trust worthy, reliable and carefully chosen for your trips, you will not face any problem trekking with your guide, you will meet many like minded travelers during the trail.


Q.Can I drink the local water during Everest trek?

You can use the chlorine tablets and used the same water as locals do. bottled water also  available throughout the trek  but the prices are expensive, you can get a boiled or hot water also in the guest house, wise is get the water purification tablets and use the normal water.


Q.Can I charge my gadgets?

Yes, you can charge batteries along the trek (US$2-3 per hour) most of the  guest houses have electricity facilities. You may want to consider bringing a solar charger which is now widely available.


Q.Can I buy a Sim Card in Nepal and will it work on the trek?

You can buy the Ncell Sim very easily ( you need passport size photo and passport copy) . It worked at most places during the trekking.


Q.Bank and ATM services are available or not?

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 old 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! 

These are the questions we are often asked and we hope that you will find the answers useful. We are often asked the above questions and we hope that you will find the answers useful. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions or just want to have a chat about the trek.

Puru was the best! From greeting us at the airport with a flower lei, todelivering us to the airport with some local souveniers. He handled every minute detail, introduced us to our guide before our trek began and was on call 24/7 even when we encountered travel delays out of his control.

The trek itself was beautiful and memorable but beware it is not for the meek and weak. Trek with a sense of adventure and be prepared to rough it, the views and charm of the local villages and people will be worth any inconveniences.

AHT is an excellent choice - Puru had suggested a balanced itinerary for our short 15 day trip and everything was very well arranged. We went for an 8 day trekking trip and we were very well taken care of by our guide Hari and porters Tika and Umess, all of whom have great attitudes. The 3 of them truly made our trip memorable and we never had to worry about anything at all. Our flight out of Lukla was cancelled due to bad weather but Puru managed to get things sorted out and we got a flight the following day.
Puru had taken care of the change in our trip's schedule and we were off to Pokhara as planned. He always ensured there's someone to meet us or to accompany us when walking to a new place is needed.
We had a great time in Nepal with AHT - everything was taken care of like clockwork, the accommodation given was clean with good service, all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. Many thanks to Puru, Hari, Tika and Umess - we will definitely be going back for another (longer) trip!

We really enjoyed our trip in Nepal and thanks to Mr. Puru to make our journey a smooth one ! Mr. Puru understands our needs and made very good recommendations for our trek which was from Lukla to Tengboche and khumjung Village,.

Our assigned trekking guide, Ramesh had been very kind and patient with us since we are not very physically strong to endure the long trek. Ramesh keeps giving us encouragement and moral support to make our trek successful one Thanks for everything to make our stay an enjoyable one.

Puru and his staff were awesome. I had scheduled the Everest View Trek, but when the airlines lost my luggage, Puru made all the necessary changes to switch me (missed the Lukla flight, due to luggage) to a terrific Annapurna Trek, including plane, hotels, and my guide. The trek and views were amazing! Puru is the most professional, helpful person, with true integrity. My guide Sitarum was also exceptionally nice, helpful and knowledgable. I would recommend them to my closest of friends. You will be taken good care of!!
