    Essential Info

    Best Time

    Do Everest View Trek from March to April (spring) and October to November (autumn) for the best trekking experience. You'll see no unstable weather obstacles or have to face delays or cancellations in flights between Kathmandu & Lukla. The views are the finest in these months. Similarly, the climate is pleasant, and the seasonal vegetation along the way makes the journey excellent.

    You can also do Everest View Trekking in winter- December to February. If you love snow and winter landscapes, then this trip will become a journey to the haven for you. However, winter trekking in the Himalayas has some drawbacks like extreme cold climate, unstable weather, and route blockage because of heavy snowfall.

    Accommodation

    Everest View Trek is a lodge trek. We spend the nights in a clean and comfortable lodge along the trekking route. You'll get a comfy bed with a blanket and a pillow. The rooms are twin shared with an attached washroom.

    Meals

    Our trek package has three meals a day during the trek- breakfast, lunch & dinner. You can carry some additional snacks with you while walking or also budget some spare money to buy food & beverages out of offered meals.

    The meals will be fresh and healthy. You can choose from the menu of the lodge. We advise you to eat dal bhat in one meal to get all the nutrients and energy. Meat items are usually made using frozen meats, so it's better to keep your meals clean to avoid an upset stomach.

    Do not buy bottled drinking water while trekking. It'll cost you a lot of money. Instead, carry a reusable water bottle and refill boiled water in lodges free of cost. Also, do not drink water from taps or streams because you may not digest it.

    Group/Private Joining

    You can trek in a group or privately with us. If you are a solo trekker, you can choose one of our departure dates, and we'll add you to one of our groups. You trek with other fellow travellers from around the world.

    If you are shy and not comfortable trekking with strangers, you also have the option to go on a private trek with us. Likewise, you can also trek with your group.

    Child Policy

    Our child policy for Everest View Trek is flexible. It is a kid-friendly trek. You can trek with your child without any worries. Our team will help you with preparation and support you during the trek. For more detailed information about trekking with your kid, get in touch with us.

    Travel Insurance

    This trek does not necessarily require travel insurance. However, having one will do you no harm. Even though Everest View Trekking is not as treacherous as other treks, we still ascend to a significant height in a remote area. So, having travel insurance that covers your airlift and medical bills will be handy in case any unseen medical emergency occurs.
