Frequenty Asked Questions about Everest Luxury Lodge Trek

How hard is this tour?

We rate this tour as a 3 / 5. Most of the trail is not strenuous, but at higher elevations, even easier sections of trail become more challenging. Consult your doctor if you have concerns about trekking at high altitudes.

Should I be concerned about altitude trekking in the Everest region?

You should always check with your doctor before taking a trekking tour at elevation. On this trekking trip in the Everest Region, the sleeping elevation is a maximum of 3,800m (12,467’) in Thame, which is relatively low for this region. You have an acclimatization day in Namche Bazaar to help you adjust to the altitude. The elevation will impact your stamina, sleeping and could pose health risks.

Do I need a Visa?

Check with your local country about visa requirements. You could also try this website, though you should verify with your government.

Are meals included?

11 breakfasts, 8 lunches and 10 dinners are included.

Do I need insurance?

Yes, it is mandatory to have Health and Medical insurance to join this trip. Get your Travel Insurance.

How do I get to Kathmandu to start this tour?

The Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu is the only international airport in Nepal. If arriving in Nepal by air, you must fly to this airport. Transportation is provided between the airport and your hotel in Kathmandu.

Are the tours in English?

Yes, the tour guide is English speaking.

Where does the tour end?

The tour ends where it begins, in Kathmandu. Tour staff will escort you to the Kathmandu Airport.

What should I pack?

You will be given a complete packing list for your trek upon booking. Plan to layer your clothing to be comfortable at different temperatures. You should be able to add a waterproof layer (jacket and trousers) to stay dry, as well as protect yourself from the sun with a hat and sunglasses. A headlamp with extra batteries is also recommended. You will carry your own daypack (30 L recommended) during the day and your baggage on the trek is limited to 12 kg. You should also have dry bags, a padlock (to lock your trek bag) and a basic first aid kid. Please respect the traditional Nepalese culture by dressing conservatively (avoid bare shoulders and keep legs covered)

Can I charge my phone / camera / other device?

You may need an outlet adapter for any electrical items. PRESS HERE to find more information. Electricity will usually be available in your lodges along the trek.

How much spending money will I need?

Plan to have cash exchanged into Nepali rupees. It is possible to withdraw rupees from ATMs in Kathmandu but not outside the city. An estimated $400-600 USD per person should be enough for meals in Kathmandu, drinks, snacks and other personal expenses such as showers and charging batteries in the trekking lodges. This should also cover tips for your guide, porters, and other trek staff.

How much should I tip my guide and porter in Nepal?

Guides and porters appreciate your tips, and this forms a large portion of their compensation. If you receive good service, you should plan on tipping your guides approximately $3-$5 per day per person in your group. You should tip your porter $2 - $4 per person per day. A larger group would tip on the lower end of the scale, while a smaller group of 2-5 would tip on the higher end.

Do I need vaccines?

Check with your family doctor.

Are there any travel restrictions for this country?

Please check with your local government about travel restrictions before you book your tour. This map from the US Department of State provides an overview of the current status in countries around the globe. The UK‘s Foreign Office and Government of Canada also provide advice on foreign travel. Note that the travel advice may change depending on your nationality.

When is the best time to travel to Nepal for this tour?

This tour is available year-round, though the best time to travel to Nepal for this trek is during the pre-monsoon season from March through early May, or post-monsoon in October and November. Monsoon season typically lasts from late May through September.
