Trekking to Everest Base Camp is a thrilling adventure, and the cost for a 12-day package from Kathmandu typically ranges from $1200 to $1450 per person. The price depends on the size of the group and the standard of the hotels included in the package.

These packages generally include a range of services to ensure a smooth and enjoyable trek. Key inclusions are round-trip flight tickets between Kathmandu and Lukla, a professional guide and his salary, three meals a day during the trek, Sagarmatha National Park entry permit, Lukla entry permit, all applicable taxes, insurance for the guide, and accommodation in tea houses along the trekking route.

For those opting for a proper local travel operator, such as Safe Holiday Adventure Pvt. Ltd, you may find the cost to be slightly lower compared to other travel agencies in Nepal or internationally. Choosing a local operator not only supports the local economy but also often provides a more personalized and cost-effective experience.

When is the best time to go on the EBC trek?

The best time to go on the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek is during the pre-monsoon (spring) and post-monsoon (autumn) seasons. Spring, from March to May, offers blooming rhododendrons and moderate temperatures. Autumn, from late September to early November, provides clear skies and stable weather, ideal for stunning mountain views. These periods avoid the heavy rains of the monsoon season and the extreme cold of winter, making the trek safer and more enjoyable.
