The 12 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking begins with the scenic flight from Kathmandu to the marvelous hill town of Lukla after the completion of necessary documentation in the office of Himalayan Scenery and Expedition. With the gentle trekking introduction on the second day after the trek to Phakding, the real trekking in the Everest region begins. We traverse through the rich Sherpa hub of Namche Bazaar, culturally rich settlements of Tengboche, the highest round the year settlement of Dingboche as well as the higher altitude stoppages of Lobuche, Gorakshep and Everest Base Camp and trek back to the initial trekking point of Lukla. The natural, scenic and biological as well as cultural diversity and up close view of humongous Himalayas gives us the euphoric feeling.

12 Days Everest Base Camp Trekking demands reasonable fitness and ability to walk through steep gradients besides an average walk of 5-6 hours per day besides mental endurance. Prepare for the trek with cardiovascular trainings such as cycling, swimming, hill-climbing and walking for enjoying the trek to the utmost level. Join hands with Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition for professional expertise, carefully planned itinerary and best possible customer service and trekkers’ security. We believe to serve our clients with the best.

NOTE: It is recommended that you should arrive in Kathmandu a day earlier before you start your trek (if you do not have a day tour of Kathmandu scheduled). And If you have scheduled Kathmandu day tour you should arrive two days prior from the actual day from trekking.

If you are able to arrive a day earlier, it will be best for you as you will get some time to rest, know about the trekking you are doing, get info about the trekking routes, and you get time to buy trekking equipment if necessary. Similarly, if you can manage a day or two after trekking. In case of any flight delay from Lukla to Kathmandu due to different circumstances you will have lower chance of missing your international flights. Adding some extra days beside actual trekking days will help you enjoy your trip to Nepal to the fullest without having to worry about any preparations, any flight delays, and missing international flights

Flight Delay in Kathmandu and Lukla:

Tenzing Hillary Airport also known as Lukla Airport, is the small but busiest airport situated on a wonderful valley fenced by high mountains. This airport has been carved into a mountain ridge and sites by a perilous three-kilometers drop. Because of the high location, the weather around here erratic and is likely to be changed in every few hours resulting flight delays and cancelation.

Twin Otter and Dornier planes are the only the modes of transportation to and from Lukla Airstrip. However, because of the unpredictable weather of the high mountain reason, there is always the risk of flight cancellation or delays. In some cases, the flights are delayed or cancelled for 2 or more days. Due to the long delays in flight schedule it may hinder your trip. However, we Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition, help you to charter helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, in case of flight cancelation or delays due to harsh and unpredictable mountain weather condition. We will provide you the best service to make sure that you are on schedule for your trip and international flight connection.

To charter a helicopter to or from the Lukla Airstrip, you will be charged approximately 2500 USD to 3,000 USD per Helicopter.

The cost of this service is payable directly to our office, and later this can be submitted to the travel insurance company to reimbursement. Our company will provide you with all the required documentations for the claim.
