As you hike from Lukla to the Base Camp, the classic route retraces the steps of Sir Edmund Hillary, Tenzing Norgay, and the numerous other early climbers of Mount Everest.

Given that you are on a teahouse trek, you'll stay in some of the world's highest settlements and learn about the Sherpa people's customs and local culture as you explore their religious connection with the Himalayas. Along the way, there are several Buddhist monasteries that you may explore to learn more about this religion's rich history and traditions and how closely it is related to the mountains you will be seeing.

The best months to hike to Mount Everest Base Camp are Autumn - October through November or Spring -March through May. Although going during the winter is not suggested for beginner and intermediate trekkers, the majority of operators offer EBC treks from August through May. With typical daily temperatures of about 10 degrees Celsius at lower elevations and near freezing at higher elevations, spring and fall give the finest climatic conditions for trekking.

What to Expect

what-to-expect-on-budget-everest-base-camp-trekIt is an 11-day adventure with many ups and downs and a journey full of memories. And if you choose our package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek, you can definitely expect a cost-friendly and convenient trek. You can also expect the following things:

Challenging trails

It is one of the challenging trails as it is located at an altitude of 5,364m. And the trails are very exhausting filled with ups and downs. Throughout the expedition, you will walk a great deal. Expect to walk for anything between 4 and 9 hours per day on a range of surfaces, including rocky pathways, high suspension bridges, and steep slopes. Don't let the term "Nepali Flat" mislead you; while certain sections of the path are less steep than others, they are nevertheless uneven.

Altitude sickness

You could get some type of altitude sickness on your walk as about 10% of individuals get it. However, you want to be sure that it doesn't turn into anything more serious. You need to acclimatize to complete your journey. Although you still experience some moderate altitude sickness symptoms with proper acclimatization, you remain generally healthy and can eventually go much higher.

The Khombu Cough

Some trekkers may also get what is known as "The Khombu Cough." Your body quickly breaths in cold, dry air that dries up the lining of the lungs and bronchi, leading to a dry, hacking cough as a result of physical effort, cold weather, and low humidity.

A lot of warm liquids will help to relieve the cough. Wearing a scarf or buff can also be beneficial since it keeps your throat warm and stops cold air and other unpleasant particles from aggravating your lungs.

A memorable experience

Your adventure's physical aches and pains will soon go away, but you'll have a treasured wealth of unforgettable memories instead. On your vacation, friendships are frequently formed quickly and deeply. The magnificent beauty of the Himalayas and the warmth of the Sherpa people never leave you. You'll reflect on your climb in Nepal to reach Everest Base Camp with a sense of satisfaction and achievement.

Transportation During the Trek

There are several ways to travel to the Khumbu region for the Everest Base Camp trek. The most convenient way for starting the journey is to take a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla's Tenzing-Hillary Airport, which is one of the world's most hazardous runways.

The round-trip flight to Lukla costs around USD 434

package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek also includes a flight ticket from Kathmandu to Lukla & fly back to Kathmandu.

Accommodation in the Everest Region

One of the biggest contributors to the price of your Everest Base Camp Trek is the accommodation options in the Khumbu area. There are many different sorts of lodging services accessible, ranging from basic to more complex, and the price varies according to the type.

Additionally, our package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek offers lodging options including tea houses and lodges. The package, however, does not include the price of lodgings in the Kathmandu Valley. For luxurious accommodation, there are additional fees.

Depending on where you are staying and the amount of service you choose, a day at a tea house might cost you anything from $5 to $20. In comparison to staying at a hotel or lodge, they will offer you meals and logistical help at a fair price.

The primary services offered by tea houses are food and logistics. Internet access and hot showers are additional amenities offered by certain tea houses. Staying in tea houses is a great option to reduce the cost of your Everest Base Camp Trek. They are also the most typical accommodations you'll find in the Everest region.

Besides the teahouse, you could also spend the night at hotels and lodges. It is the most costly option to spend the night when trekking to Everest Base Camp. The typical hotel nightly rate might be between $30 and $120.The majority of hotels offer amenities including simple lodging, connected restrooms, and hot showers. However, Hotel services are only available at Lukla, Phakding Namche Bazar & Dibuche.

As mentioned earlier, the trek experience entirely depends upon you. So, for accommodation you can choose either option, Teahouse is the most reliable mode of accommodation.

During the busiest times of the year, you might not be able to book a hotel if you are traveling alone. When you book your journey with us, we will make the advance payment for you at the busiest times of the year or you can directly purchase our package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek for a convenient journey.

Food and water availability

The Everest Base Camp journey takes at least 11 days, and we are not able to pack food for the whole trek. Some individuals wish to bring a lot of food on their hike but do not commit this error. During your trip, you must walk for 6 to 8 hours each day, and if you pack a lot of food, your bag will make you pull yourself behind.

Since you will eat breakfast, lunch, and supper every day while on the walk, food will be the most expensive item. Also keep in mind that since there is no access to roads in the Everest region, the cost of any food is expensive. The individual must carry all of the food. In general, every hotel, lodge, and teahouse offers its visitors meals, but you have to give them orders.

Let's talk about the expense of meals for the Everest base camp trek. Lunch and supper each cost around USD 12-15, while breakfast is between USD 10 to USD 12. If you have the most basic goods, your daily meal expense will thus range from USD 35 to USD 45.

But if you buy our package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek, you won’t need to worry about basic food items which include three times meals a day for the whole trip.

The following are some of the most inexpensive and straightforward food choices you can enjoy.

  • Dal bhat ranges in price from 900 rupees to 1400 rupees.
  • The price of soups ranges from 500 to 700 rupees.
  • Dishes including potatoes, noodles, veg-fried spaghetti, and rice will cost between 800 and 1300
  • Pizzas cost around 800–1200 rupees.
  • Veg momos range in price from 600 to 800 rupees.

Since everything must be transported up the mountain, it seems natural that food prices rise with altitude. Also, as we elevate the choice of food items will decrease. As per the above estimation, the budget of food per day will range up to 4000 NPR per day.

Now, talking about clean water, Even though mountain water is clean, you need to filter or use purification tablets.

Permits required

Permits for budget Everest Base Camp trekYou will require certain permits to enter the Everest area. In Solukhumbu's Sagarmatha National Park sits Everest Base Camp. You will want special permission to access the National Parks because they are restricted regions.

Everest Base Camp Trek permits typically cost between 3000 NPR, or around $23. For visitors from India, the cost is somewhat less, at about 1500 NPR. Similarly, according to the policy, young children are expected to receive a pricing advantage.

Here are some of the permissions you'll need for your trek to Everest Base Camp and their associated costs:

Sagarmatha National Park Permit

Sagarmatha National Park, a World Heritage Site and one of Nepal's most significant National Park regions, with a total size of 1,148 square kilometers and is home to Everest Base Camp (443 square miles). The primary goal of this national park is the preservation of several kinds of animals that are on the verge of extinction, including the musk deer, snow leopard, red panda (Habre), and others.

Entrance Permits are required because the majority of your journey takes place inside the Sagarmatha National Park, and they cost about 3000 Nepalese Rupees. The explanation is straightforward: National Parks and Conservation Areas are the world's most restricted locations, hence you must get entrance permits before entering them.

The Khumbu section of the Solukhumbu District, comprising the Everest Base Camp and Everest Three Passes, may be almost entirely conquered once you have paid your entry fees.

The government will charge you certain entry permission costs.

Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit

Along with the Sagarmatha National Park Entry Permit, another type of permit is the Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit. For the correct completion of your journey, you will also require this Permit, which costs about 2000 Nepali Rupees or USD 16 per person.

On October 1st, 2018, this access permit system went into effect, taking the place of the Trekkers' Information Management Systems (TIMS) Card. If you don't have this Permit, you won't be able to go through the Khumbu region, including to Everest Base Camp; you will need to pay a set fee for the card.

Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit - Not necessary for this route

To begin your trek to Everest Base Camp in 2023, you will also need to get a Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit. This is not required unless you take a different route through Jiri, in which case it is optional.

Permits for those choosing to climb from Jiri to Everest Base Camp may be purchased in Shivalaya or at the Kathmandu Tourism Board. The cost of the permit is 3000 Nepali Rupees.

You do not need TIMS Card

In 2023, Base Camp and the Khumbu area will not require a Trekkers' Information Management Systems (TIMS) Card for transit. Several policies in the tourism industry have altered as a result of Nepal's decentralized governance. The Khumbu Pasang Lhamu Rural Municipality Entrance Permit is now necessary to proceed as TIMS Card has been deemed to be no longer valid.

In order to access these permits, you would require a guide. We at Marvel Adventure offer an excellent cost-friendly package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek which includes a very professional guide to help you throughout your journey.

Other things to consider

Budget Everest Base Camp Trek thumnail

Travel Insurance

Trekking across the Everest area is never without risk. A financial nightmare might result from even relatively minor injuries or misplaced bags. Altitude sickness, mishaps, and canceled flights are some more potential difficulties. Because of this, you require insurance to reduce all of these dangers. For about USD 150, you can purchase required travel insurance to cover such contingencies as emergency evacuation. We strongly advise it.

Trekking equipment

Everest Base Camp Trek is a technical hike, so you must be prepared with the necessary gear and equipment. The essential tools may be purchased at Thamel for a significantly reduced cost. But carrying high-quality gear is strongly suggested for navigating the difficult Himalayan terrain.

The list of essentials for trekking includes sleeping bags, down jackets, hiking boots, backpacks, trekking poles, polarized sunglasses, route maps, flashlights, additional batteries, and raincoats. The equipment can also be rented. You should expect to spend between USD 300 and USD 500 on all of your trekking supplies.

Guides

While trekking in Nepal, having a guide and a porter is usually quite helpful. They are familiar with the accommodation facilities and can communicate in the local tongue. With their wealth of knowledge of the path, they'll help you make the most of your trekking experience. Likewise, porters will transport your gear so you can move freely, especially at high elevations where walking might be difficult.

While hiring a porter costs between $20 and $25 per day, hiring a guide often costs between $30 and $35 per day. One porter may handle up to 20 kilograms of stuff. This doesn’t include their travel expense, you need to pay for it separately.

You can always hire them from a travel company directly. We also provide experienced guides at Marvel Adventure or you can always buy our travel package, Budget Everest Base Camp Trek for convenience.

You may choose from several options at tea shops. Our package Budget Everest Base Camp Trek handles all your logistics regarding your accommodations at tea houses and food and drink facilities.

Trekking in offseason

It might be very expensive to travel during the busy season. When EBC is busy and accommodations are in high demand, seasons like spring and fall are regarded as the peak seasons. It instantly raises the price of your food and logistics.

Therefore, if you want to minimize your Budget for Everest Base Camp Trek, we suggest hiking off-peak. However, it would be prudent to keep in mind that the surroundings could not be as you had anticipated at this time. Landslides during the monsoon and a lot of snow during the winter will also have a negative influence on your walk. So you should be well-prepared before visiting there in the off-season.

Rent Equipment and Gear

Another way to reduce your expense is to rent equipment and gear instead of buying them directly. You can easily find renting services in the Thamel area.

Travel Agency

Selecting a reliable travel agency is crucial for hassle-free travel through the EBC Trek and a safe, cost-effective trip. A cost-effective agency will principally offer you discounts on lodging and your EBC Trek package and assist you with logistics and safety concerns all during the trip.

Testimonials

    Incredible experience

    Just did Everest Base Camp trek with Marvel Adventure which was amazing. The organisation of the trip was seamless. Nir made my first experience in Nepal so much easier, from picking me up from the airport on arrival, to spending the next day in Kathmandu helping sort bits out for my trek. He even took me to monkey temple, a Kathmandu attraction! Now for the trek. On the trek itself Dhana was my guide. He was a kind, attentive and knowledgable guide, having grown up in the mountains. The trek was incredible with amazing views! Throughout the hikes he checked in with me, and it was quite reassuring that each night Dhana checked my blood oxygen levels with an oximeter and put my mind at ease. He also cut me up fruit each evening which was a nice treat. At the end of the trip, Nir came and met me again. I left with a smile on my face and would 100% recommend Marvel!
