Other Information

Everest Base Camp Trekking Useful Info

Please be advised: We recommend adding extra days in your itinerary as a safety margin for your return flight home. The air traffic from Kathmandu to Lukla, and then Lukla to Kathmandu is frequently behind schedule and this may cause onward delays. Sometimes flights get backed up for a days. In these circumstances, we will do our best to any problems, and re-schedule flights to and from Lukla as available. However, we must caution you about the possibility of postponements of flights and even cancellations. We recommend that you schedule at least an extra 2 days cushion in your itinerary to avoid problems with international flights from Nepal. In the event of delays, we can arrange a helicopter at your request at a cost of around USD 500-1000 per person, depending on demand and capacity. It is also very likely that no delays will be incurred. In any case, we can arrange additional activities with your extra time in Nepal.

Please review our designated departure dates for this trek and if they do not suit your timeframe, then let us know how we can arrange a trek that is convenient for you.The itinerary listed above is a general guideline; please be advised that it might be necessary to modify it due to external factors beyond our means including and not limited to the following: unstable weather, accessibility and availability of lodging and campsites, unforeseen governmental, trail and ecological conditions and other circumstances beyond our control. Although, it is improbable that changes will occur that would significantly alter the original itinerary, we cannot be held accountable for the results of delays or changes beyond our control. In the event of an Itinerary adjustment or need to redirect to other trails and areas, the Leader Guide will ultimately make the final choice on the best rerouting after consulting with the group members and keeping in mind the interests of the party as a whole. If an alteration is necessary, then we will certainly do everything we can to diminish the effects.
