    Dakman, Nima, Dowa, and Susa were fantastic guides. They have great sense of humour, were patience with all the team members and we had 1% success rate to getting to base camp. It was an absolute joy with them all.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • What do I need to know about this trip with regards to the accommodation?

      Accommodation on this tour will be made at local lodges - better known as teahouses - simple but comfortable places to saty in. Toilets and washing facilities are shared and rudimentary, and the food is plain and filling.

      In a teahouse, passengers are provided with small twin share rooms with twin beds, mattresses and pillows. At times, in high seasons, and in places where there are limited number of teahouses, passengers have to make do with dormitories. In some places, teahouses do not have access to electricity, depending on solar powered lighting instead.

      In more remote regions, teahouses do not have running water and toilets can mean just a hole in the ground. Hot shower facilities are available in some teahouses for a price, but in most of the places, a hot shower means a bucket of hot water, barely enough to wash your body.

    • Are there any supplemental fees for solo travellers?

      There is no mandatory single supplement on this trip, however you can request one be added, should you prefer to have your own room.

    • Is it necessary to bring a sleeping bag and mat?

      You can choose to bring your own sleeping bag or rent one in Nepal.

    • Is there a meal inclusion with the tour package?

      Meals are not included on the tour in order to give the travellers as much flexibility when it comes to choosing where and what to eat.

    • Does my time of arrival matters in day 1 of the tour? And what time does the tour end, so I could book my flight accordingly.

      On day 1, you'll need to arrive earlier for you will have an important group briefing before the trip starts.

      Day 15 is the departure day with no planned activities - Day 14 is the last of your planned activities so you can plan a flight at any time on Day 15.


      An important trip notes regarding this tour will be given to you, it has lots of information about what you'll need to know before booking or going on this tour.

    • Is there a luggage limit for this trip?

      Intrepid will provide a duffel bag to carry your trekking gear. The weight limit per person is 10kg each. Porters are legally limited to carrying 20kg max on trek.

    • What is the age group?

      The age group of this trip is wide spread with travellers as young as 15 and as old as 70 being permitted to join the trip.

    • What fitness level is required for the Everest base camp trek?

      For the trek on this trip the general rule is you will need to be very fit, and the more preparation you have done for it the more you will enjoy it. You will be walking at altitudes of up to approximately 5545 metres above sea level and it will be demanding trekking. You will be walking with your day pack, with the possibility of extreme variations in temperature. We recommend that you undertake regular aerobic exercise in the months before you travel, particularly if you are not in the habit of regular exercise. Doing mountain walks or climbing long stair cases with a pack is good preparation (try putting a few bricks in your pack for real training). Walking, jogging, swimming or riding a bike are all good ways to increase your aerobic fitness, which will allow you to enjoy the trek to its fullest.

    • Where can I find more detailed information about this tour?

      A trip note - which contains essential information about your trip will be given to you.
